1 athlete recently qualified to appear at the Tokyo Olympics.
She’ll be representing America.
Except she doesn’t seem to like our country.
When the anthem played, one thing she didn’t do was sing along.
On Saturday, the song happened to start while outspoken activist Gwen Berry was standing on the podium after receiving her bronze medal in the hammer throw.
While the music played, Berry placed her left hand on her hip and shuffled her feet. She took a quarter turn, so she was facing the stands, not the flag. Toward the end, she plucked up her black T-shirt with the words “Activist Athlete” emblazoned on the front, and draped it over her head.Breitbart News
Now, why would an athlete refuse to sing our national anthem?
You might know the answer already.
She’s a radical leftist.
In fact, the anthem doesn’t even matter to her.
They said they were going to play it before we walked out, then they played it when we were out there,” Berry said. “But I don’t really want to talk about the anthem because that’s not important. The anthem doesn’t speak for me. It never has.”Breitbart News
We thought that the anthem spoke for you if you were an American citizen.
It’s very strange for someone to want to represent America on the international stage while disowning our anthem.
But it all becomes clear when you know what her reasons are.
“My purpose and my mission is bigger than sports,” Berry said. “I’m here to represent those … who died due to systemic racism. That’s the important part. That’s why I’m going. That’s why I’m here today.”Breitbart News
So for her, sport is not a competition where the best person wins.
It’s a statement on systemic racism…
Only a leftist could believe this.
For them, the personal is the political.
In fact, everything is political.
Their radical agenda has to be front and center in everything they do.
For Berry, the sports isn’t just a secondary concern.
It doesn’t matter one bit!
An athlete who competes to represent the USA, but won’t sing our anthem and doesn’t think sport matters.
That means she’s not representing the USA, only herself.
So this ‘activist athlete’ can be safely ignored!
