At this years ‘Women of the Year’ awards on November 10th, USA Soccer player and co-Captain Megan Rapinoe was given the Glamour “woman of the year” award and she used the moment to not only incite hate-ridden attacks against President Trump but to once again disrespect and defile America and all that America represents!

In fact, the United States soccer player attributed her success to none other than the America hating, flag disrespecting, former NFL player Colin Kaepernick. In fact, she insisted that she would not be in a position to accept such an award if it were not for Kaepernick’s 2016 protests that disrespected America’s national anthem, flag, and what it means to truly be an American!

The Huffington Post reported that Rapinoe told the audience that…

“I don’t feel like I would be here without someone whose courage and bravery was so bright and so bold, a person filled with conviction, unafraid of the consequences because he knew it really wasn’t about playing it safe, it was about doing what was necessary and backing down to exactly nobody. So, while I’m enjoying all of this unprecedented, and frankly, a little bit uncomfortable attention, and personal success in large part due to my activism off the field, Colin Kaepernick is still effectively banned.”

However, Kaepernick is no Saint! In fact, he is quite the opposite, as he inspires other sycophants like himself! Sycophants like Rapinoe, who put their own self-serving interests above the interests of America or the American people! In fact, after leading an anti-American cause on the football field to disgrace our flag, our national anthem, and our nation, Colin Kaepernick claimed that it was about police discrimination and not the flag! However, he then pushed for Nike to kill their 4th of July shoes that bore the American flag, because it offended him, and his fellow Marxists!

In July, Nike was set to release their 4th of July shoe featuring the Betsy Ross American flag, until America hating, cop-hating Colin Kaepernick threatened Nike, stating that the shoe was offensive, due to it featuring the American flag! Therefore, they pulled the shoe from release, for fear of offending someone, as it carried the American flag on it!

Also, this past Forth of July, Kaepernick declared on the birth of our nation, that America is…

“the worst nation in the history of the world”!

In fact, he posted a video with the national anthem playing in the background, while it shows pictures of the KKK, slavery, lynchings, police abuse of African-Americans, and with the audacity to play a voice-over reading of Frederick Douglass’ 1852 speech about slavery! In addition, Kaepernick disgustingly states on his tweeted video that…

“What have I, or those I represent, to do with your national independence? This Fourth of July is yours, not mine…There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of these United States at this very hour.” – Frederick Douglass”

Ultimately, Kaepernick is so full of hate that he loathes America and all the freedoms that it grants to ‘We the People’! Regardless, Gold Star families slam his hate and his anti-Americanism…

Maybe if Kaepernick hates America so badly, and truly believes that it is the worst nation on earth, HE SHOULD JUST LEAVE!

However, Kaepernick and Rapinoe are only a symptom of a much larger disease that rots our nation from the inside out! Sadly, it too many in government have succumbed to their own greed and lust for power, as they no longer consider themselves servants of the American people, but instead as Elitists, who are deserving of luxury and power, as they try to retain that power and wealth through Marxist based government, combined with a Socialist economic system, designed to divide the nation into the Elitist have’s and the other 99%, who become the have-nots!

As far as Rapinoeo, The Daily Mail reported that…

In her latest protest against President Trump – a man she has previously branded a ‘racist’ and a ‘misogynist’ – Rapinoe refused to sing along to the national anthem, standing emotionless with her hands clasped behind her back and her lips unmoved.

This is not the first time Rapinoe has opted not to recite the words of The Star-Spangled Banner, having not taken part in the anthem at all for the last three years.

But in all of her hate for America, her hate for a man who she brants a racist and a misogynist, like much of her hate-ridden allies, she fails to explain the foundations of her claims, but instead espouses her own hate for not only America but fellow Americans!

Interestingly, regardless of the facts and the truth, the Mainstream Media have worked in overdrive, to make not only Kaepernick, but now Rapinoe, the face of their cause, and a hero, as Howard Kurtz pointed out that…

Meanwhile, Rapinoe continued to take a knee at the World Cup, despite the Women’s League demands to stand for the anthem!

Sadly, the disrespect didn’t stop there, as following the Women’s World Cup win, Rapinoe’s teammate Allie Long, drug the American flag on the ground, and then threw it down, onto the grass, so she could raise her hands in celebration, following their team’s win!

The Gateway Pundit reported…

During an on-field victory celebration of the U.S. women’s soccer team’s 2-0 defeat of the Netherlands in the World Cup championship in Lyon, France on Sunday, Long was seen dragging the U.S. flag on the grass as she set up for a photo-op with Megan Rapinoe–and then throwing the flag on the grass in response to Rapinoe pushing the flag away as they and a third player mugged for the cameras with the World Cup trophy held by Rapinoe.

The following clip shows the moment when Rapinoe pushed away from the flag as Allie Long drug it on the ground! Then, Long threw it on the ground, as she disrespectfully stepped on it!

Fortunately, a fellow teammate, Kelley O’Hara, saw the disrespect, and swooped in to pick up the flag, and get it off the ground!

Sadly, whether you are a soccer fan, a football fan, or neither, it should be hard to support a team that not only hates the President of the United States with such vicious anger but especially when they hate the very nation that these players are supposed to represent!

Ultimately, the American Flag has been a symbol of pride and American values since the dawn of our country. It symbolizes much more than a piece of cloth to our military, veterans, and citizens nationwide. It is a symbol of freedom, a symbol that should be respected and honored. Unfortunately, over the past year, America has become the victim of a spreading and ever-growing cancer that took root in our Professional Sports and is trying to spread and erode the very fabric of our nation. To understand the significance of the American Flag and our National Anthem, you have to know the history of both.

In the Smithsonian Magazine, it details the history of the Star Spangled Banner:

It was a rainy day on September 13, 1814, when British warships rained fire and fury onto American Patriots at Fort McHenry in Baltimore’s Harbor. A 35-year-old American lawyer named Francis Scott Key’s was aboard the flagship of the British fleet on the Chesapeake Bay in hopes of persuading the British to release a friend who was recently arrested. Keys and his friend were both held prisoner due to the fact that they knew of the impending attack that had already ensued. The Battle was known as the ‘Battle of Baltimore’, and following the attack where the British burned the Capitol, the Treasury, and the President’s Home. It was another day in the ongoing War of 1812. Keys described the attack by saying that “It seemed as though mother earth had opened up and was vomiting shot and shell in a sheet of fire and brimstone.” But when darkness arrived, Key saw only red erupting in the night sky. Due to the scale of the attack, Key was certain that the British won, but as the “dawns early light” peered through the fading smoke, he saw the American Flag, and not the British Union Jack flying over the fort. Francis Scott Key wrote his thoughts of the attack on paper while onboard the ship to the tune of a popular English song. His brother-in-law, commander of a militia at Fort McHenry, read and distributed it under the name “Defence of Fort McHenry.” Soon after that, the Baltimore Patriot newspaper printed it, and within weeks, Key’s poem spread across the country and became known as ‘The Star-Spangled Banner.’

Over the years, the American Flag has endured wars, and been the target of enemies both foreign and domestic. The American Flag is a symbol that harbors vast meaning for our Country, and Military. For example, the flag’s stripes represent the 13 Colonies that fought what seemed to be an impossible war with the British. Those were the same Colonies that bled and died for the right’s and freedom’s that we have been fortunate enough to enjoy over the years. The stars represent the 50 States of the American Union. A symbol of the Unity of our country from coast to coast that had over 620,000 souls perish fighting to preserve that Union during the Civil War. The colors of the flag are symbolic as well: The red stripes symbolize hardiness and valor, white symbolizes purity and innocence, and the blue represents vigilance, perseverance, and justice. All of which, have significant meaning for our Military Forces and Veterans. Million’s of Americans have given their lives carrying the American Flag as a symbol of our nation’s commitment to not only protecting the rights of our nation to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness but to fight for others’ rights to those sacred human desires.

Therefore, is it wrong for the NFL, for United States Soccer, or anyone else in America to take a knee during the National Anthem? Is it disrespectful for them to be defiant to the Anthem and American Flag? To some, it may seem like a complicated question, but in reality, it is not. As Americans, we do have the right to take a knee during the National Anthem, but just because it is a right, it doesn’t mean that we should do it. Most days, Americans just don’t think about what the flag means or the sacrifices given by others to protect our God-given rights. However, when you meet veterans and Soldiers who have witnessed horrific and indescribable events to protect American’s rights and privileges, they see its colors so vibrant, the sound so sharp as the wind whips the flag to and fro. Its symbolic meaning reminds them of all that has been given, and it stirs pride, respect, and awe in their hearts. It is a feeling that we as Americans need to remember, as so many have died to protect the freedom’s that the flag symbolizes. Therefore, just because a bunch of over-privileged, over-paid millionaires who can throw a football around has the right to take a knee to protest. It doesn’t mean that they should. They need to remember that the flag symbolizes the freedom that allows them to disrespect it, but it is a slap in the face to those who fought, died, and lost loved ones to allow such a disrespectful display of arrogance to take place.

The NFL, ESPN, Progressives and others have chosen to dishonor and show disrespect to our American Troops. They have chosen to disrespect all those who have fought for, bled, and died to protect our rights, freedom’s, and privileges. They disrespect the firemen who died and hoisted the flag at Ground Zero. A flag that instilled a sense of hope to our nation, when all hope seemed lost! They disrespect the Marines who placed the flag upon the mount so long ago! They disrespect the men and women who fought and died to give birth to our great nation. They disrespect the many American soldiers who come home in coffins. Coffins draped with the very American Flag that the NFL vehemently hate and disrespect.

Too many have fought and died for this country and for what the flag represents to have them dishonor it and disrespect it. It is not simply a piece of cloth. It is a symbol of what our nation is, and what our nation stands for. So why is there so many willing to show such disrespect? To start with, our nation has slowly moved away from educating our children about history. When we do that, history tends to repeat itself. This is why we have so many of our youth claiming to embrace communism, despite the fact that communist nations of the past snuffed out freedoms, forced their citizens into poverty, and exterminated millions of their people in the name of justice. Americans have also chosen to abandon God’s laws. They have minimized the family unit, glamorize sex, and promoted greed. Progressive’s have pitted men against women, black against white, legal citizens against the illegal aliens, and used greed to promote class warfare. We have abandoned God’s principles, but it is not too late. We need to defy those who fight to diminish our flag, our soldiers, our veterans, and our nation. We need to educate our children about the history of our great nation, and the history of the world. But most importantly, we need to educate our children about God and his teachings. It is then, and only then, that we will be able to protect and preserve our nation for ourselves and our posterity.
