As predicted, the ratings for the Tokyo Olympics have been pretty dismal. While the media try to blame it on COVID or the lack of cheering crowds, viewers have made it clear that they have no interest in seeing US athletes use their spotlight to make leftwing political statements and disrespect their own country. This latest iteration of “Get woke, go broke” forced NBC to rerun commercials free of charge to advertisers, to help make up for the lower-than-promised viewership.
It is a shame that the angry grandstanders cause people to miss some truly inspiring moments by great, patriotic young Americans. But as is often said, “Leftism ruins everything it touches.”
In a related story, Subway Sandwich shop owners, all of whom are independent franchisees, are begging the woke corporate office to yank the commercials featuring radical US women’s soccer team leader Megan Rapinoe. Store owners say they’re been flooded with complaints from customers who say they will never eat at Subway again as long as it's represented by that “anti-American” “creep” who kneels during the National Anthem.
Corporate didn’t respond to requests for comment from Fox Business News. But they’d better respond to their franchisees.
As for Rapinoe, if she loses the Subway gig, don’t worry about her. Victoria’s Secret recently signed her, and I’m sure that will work out much better.
