Former US women’s soccer team goalkeeper Hope Solo said she believes star player and leftist activist Megan Rapanoe bullied some of the other players into taking a knee during the National Anthem.

It would be ironic but par for the course for leftists to virtue-signal opposition to “oppression” by oppressing other people into knuckling under to their views.

Solo said there are “so many political issues for athletes” and they feel like they’re “carrying the weight of the world on their backs…There’s been a lot of pressure, and ultimately at the end of the day, our number one focus should and has always been to win first.”

Except that Rapanoe’s divisive influence and political grandstanding might have helped the US team that was favored to win first come in third instead. The best response to anyone, on your team or off, who tries to pressure you to take political stands that you think don’t belong on the field isn’t to get disheartened or to cave in. It’s to tell the agitator, “Politics belong off the field. We’re here to win. If you can’t contribute 100% to that goal, then leave and make room for someone who can.”

    WHY? Why was this every allowed to proceed per this puppet President and what we now see across the world? Our soldiers please note we the citizens of the US know how stupid this man can be and what he has done is beyond belief on WHY? His two Generals who are as bad and they would lead us to a war. Now we they say ask the Taliban not to kill people leaving and not say we will blow your heads off? We were okay there for over a year and small group of military way smaller then many other countries? So you just out of the blue say military head out and then walk away? WHAT? Whole group needs to resign and the Generals both need to get out for allowing this puppet to even do this? Then he the Puppet comes on yesterday and he is demanding of nursing homes you get your vaccination? Save the world or think he is saving his butt? Too late. By the way where is the VP Harris most of the time you saw TRUMP you saw Harris and she was there when he made the call to bail out of Afganistan? Think oh okay he can be taken away to a nursing home for his dementia but we get her and realize it is twice as worse? PRAY!

    No matter if she bullied them, it was their decision! Megan Rapanoe should be reprimanded and removed from any future Olympic games.
