Sports are getting more woke by the day.
It’s crossing over into the world of politics.
A national anthem protest to Joe Biden is making one unbelievable announcement.
As American Patriot Daily reports:
Track and Field athlete Gwen Berry earned a spot on Team USA in the Summer Olympics with a third-place finish in the hammer throw.
But that athletic achievement immediately got lost when the national anthem began to play while Berry was on the media podium.
Berry turned away from the flag in disgust as the first and second-place finishers stood at attention with their hands over their hearts.
At that point Berry covered her head with a shirt that read “activist athlete” and later claimed the national anthem was racist.
“This weekend, Gwen Berry who is supposed to represent the United States as an Olympian on the hammer throwing events won a bronze medal at the Trials, and then she turned her back on the flag while the anthem played,” Doocy asked Psaki. “Does President Biden think that is appropriate behavior for someone who is supposed to represent Team USA?”
Psaki responded that Biden agreed with Berry’s right to protest as well as the spirit of her demonstration of disdain for the Star-Spangled Banner.
“He would also say, of course, that part of that pride in our country means recognizing there are moments where we as a country haven’t lived up to our highest ideals, and it means respecting the right of people granted to them in the Constitution to peacefully protest,” Psaki added.
Former U.S. infantry officer and Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton slammed Berry’s protest during an appearance on “Fox News Primetime.”
Cotton declared that if Berry hates the U.S. so much, Team USA should remove her from the Olympic squad.
“I don’t think it’s too much, when athletes are competing to wear the Stars and Stripes — to compete under the Stars and Stripes in the Olympics — for them to simply honor that flag and our anthem on the medal stand,” Cotton explained. “If Ms. Berry is so embarrassed by America, then there’s no reason she needs to compete for our country. She should be removed from the Olympic team.”
Millions of Americans were appalled by Gwen Berry’s actions.
Representing your country at the Olympics is one of the great honors in American life.
And many believe the administration should stand up for the flag and the national anthem.
