I’m sick of it.
I’m sure you’re sick of it.
And now NFL great Herschel Walker is sick of it too.
Walker slammed the Olympians protesting the American flag and taking a knee, wanting to know why they are even there in the first place. Tyrus is featured in the video above, but the rest of this post centers around Herschel Walker’s reaction to the protests, as stated on Fox News.
If the athlete hates America so much and wants to embarrass the country, then decline the offer to represent the country. No athlete who’s going to take a knee or turn their back on the American flag should be allowed to represent America. That’s NOT who we are or what we are.
It’s one of the most disrespectful things an athlete can do, especially at the Olympic level where we’re competing against other countries. They must be looking at us and laughing every time the women’s soccer team takes a knee – and thankfully they lost to Sweden 3-0, breaking their 44-game win streak. In fact, I hope the women’s soccer team loses every game and gets laughed out of the Olympics at this point.
With the 2021 Summer Olympics taking place in Tokyo with no fans allowed to attend, you’d think the athletes would want to put on a show for us folks at home. Well, most of the people representing America are doing a great job, but then you have the purple-haired freak soccer star Megan Rapinoe who has become nothing more than an athletic activist at this point, leading the women’s soccer team into an embarrassing 3-0 loss to Sweden who simply whipped their backsides while the American players looked absolutely lost.
Well, I guess that’s when happens when you show up and trash your own country. The women’s soccer team deserved to lose.
Herschel Walker, who was once an Olympic athlete himself besides playing in the NFL, wants to know if the Olympics are the right place for athletes to protest against their country? Well, that answer is always a big juicy NO.
Walker was part of the 1992 Olympics, racing on Team USA’s two-man bobsled team – something many people might forget. So not only did Herschel Walker compete at the highest level of football, he was also pretty talented at other things and found his way from a life growing up in Georgia to representing his entire country on a bobsled.
Walker said during a Fox News interview: “People think I’m very harsh when I say this… This is the United States of America, and if people don’t like the rules here — and there’s no doubt we can make some things better — but if people don’t like the rules here, why are you here?”
All those people hating on America, but why aren’t they moving out and finding another country?
The door is wide open, the plane tickets are available, and they just stay here complaining, protesting, and hating the country.
Of course, there’s always things we can fix as a nation, but does that mean athletes should protest AT WORK?
Think about it. If you jumped on your desk and started yelling BLM or took a knee at lunchtime – would your boss hand you those walking papers? Would anyone care what you’re saying? Would you end up looking like a clown like women’s soccer players who took a knee and got their backsides handed to them in a hilarious loss?
You can’t do that at work, and if you did, there might be a consequence.
And where’s the consequence for these woke as a joke athletes who abuse their platform for personal protests?
Honey, you’re AT WORK, get off your knees and represent America with some darn respect and dignity.
If the athletes want to protest on their own time, then go for it! That’s their right, but they don’t need to do it during their job.
Herschel Walker had more to say on the activist athletes: “It’s very sad to me because any other country… I can promise you… they would not be representing that country… I totally disagree with it, but they have the right to do it, even though I think it’s wrong. We have to have leaders that… are going to stand up and say the right thing. You can feel a certain way and I think that’s great, but this is the United States Olympics. … I’m not sure that’s the time or place.”
Herschel Walker is right. Let someone try this protesting during sports nonsense in China and see what happens.
