Dale Jackson: I hope the U.S. women’s soccer team loses 1776-0
I can’t stand Colin Kaepernick. I want him to get a job in the NFL just so he can play badly.
His latest move to call for Nike to stop selling shoes with an older version of the American flag should make it clear to everyone what a joke this guy is. Hopefully, Nike will understand that they have aligned themselves with an anti-American movement that tarnishes their brand and could hurt their business.
This strand of anti-Americanism is boosted by a complicit media that agrees with Kaepernick and other athletes while not caring what normal Americans think.
At the same time an American company that does business in China while they run actual concentration camps, the United States women’s national soccer team is being led by a loud-mouth wannabe hero of “The Resistance.”
Megan Rapinoe is a media darling just like Kaepernick was and for the exact same reasons. She took a public position that required no risk and knowing there would be no real pushback.
Sure, people like me and regular Americans will hate her, we will complain, but eventually, we will just go back about our lives and not care about this woman or her soccer team for four more years. If a soccer star came out as a huge supporter of America or, heaven forbid, President Donald Trump, real calls for boycotts and public destruction would cause real damage.
This is America in 2019.
None of her teammates will call her out or say she doesn’t speak for them. The silence is deafening and that is their choice.
This should be a point of pride for America. instead, they have decided they want to be overtly political to cater to the media bubble that hangs over Washington, D.C. and New York City.
The sooner these women are back into obscurity the better it will be for America.
For this reason, this is my choice: I will actively root for the U.S. soccer team to be destroyed by the team of women from England.
God Save the Queen!
