Megan Rapinoe is a star player for the U.S. women’s soccer team…, and a “tool” for the fake liberal narrative.

There’s no doubt that Megan Rapinoe is a great soccer player…, but that doesn’t mean she has any special political insight, enlightenment, awareness or wisdom regarding the issues of the day…, it just means she’s good at playing soccer.

And her team, OUR team, the United States women’s soccer team, just won the women’s World Cup championship.

Even though she plays for the United States’ team, she chose to kneel during the playing of the national anthem before all of the games in the World Cup tournament.

So Megan…, you kneel to disrespect our country, our flag, and our President, but you wear a flag on your uniform while you play in the games?  It seems like you are a bit confused and inconsistent.

In fact…, perhaps you should play for a country that is up to your liberal standards.  Perhaps Canada, France…, or maybe Venezuela?

Here’s a newsflash for you Megan…, nobody is forcing you to play for OUR team!

You have stated, “Your message is excluding people. You’re excluding me, you’re excluding people that look like me, you’re excluding people of color, you’re excluding Americans that maybe support you,” referring to President Trump.

I would like to ask Ms. Rapinoe how she feels The President is “excluding people?”

I listen to President Trump quite a bit, and I have heard him say nothing that excludes anyone…, in fact quite the opposite.  It seems like she is just drinking that fake news liberal Kool-Aid and regurgitating it as if it was the gospel truth!

I would challenge her to quote any of The President’s words that would substantiate her hate for the man.

She won’t, because she can’t, because those quotes don’t exist.

She added, again referring to President Trump, “We need to have a reckoning because you’re harking back to an era that was not great for everyone — it might have been great for a few people, and maybe America is great for a few people right now, but it’s not great for enough Americans in this world.  You have an incredible responsibility as the chief of this country to take care of every single person, and you need to do better for everyone.”

Yes Megan…, he is harkening back to an era that you know nothing about.  You didn’t even exist.  In fact…, if your mother was a pro-abortion lesbian like yourself, it is doubtful you would have ever existed!

Also…, another newsflash…, no country is ever going to be all things to all of its people, and it’s not The President’s responsibility to “take care of every single person.”  Although I know that is the belief of those who desire a “nanny state.”

The President represents our country and should do his best to do and promote things that will make our country and our lives better.

Rapinoe has described herself as a “walking protest,” and she has famously said she, “would not be “going to the f*****g White House,” if the women’s team won the World Cup.

Here we go with the liberal potty mouth again.  What is it with these confused liberals and the “f” word?

Rapinoe has also said, “I don’t think anyone on the team has any interest in lending the platform that we’ve worked so hard to build, and the things that we fight for, and the way that we live our life — I don’t think that we want that to be co-opted or corrupted by this administration.”

What?

I think she just said she doesn’t want their liberal “reputations” tarnished or their membership in the “liberal club” evoked by even being seen with The President.

She added that allowing the White House to “put us on display” didn’t “make sense for us at all,” adding that “there are so many other people that I would rather talk to and have meaningful conversations that could really affect change in Washington than going to the White House.”

I’d like to hear those “meaningful conversations.”

Rapinoe has accepted the invitations that she and her teammates have received from democrat politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, however, and “to anyone else that wants to invite us and have a real substantive conversation, and that believes in the same things that we believe in.”

How stunningly partisan of you Megan!

And what an inspiring display of intolerance on your part.

These liberals can’t see the forest because of the trees.

Oh…, and by the way Megan…, have you ever stopped and considered that the transgender policies that you and your democrat friends promote will probably put an end to women’s sports as we know them?

You claim to be an advocate of women’s rights and equality, but you’re really just a gay liberal puppet putting on a bad show.

You’re such an inspiring and effective spokesperson for young girls all across our nation, as you pull the rug out from under them.

Idiot.

Now we have learned that, according to Ryan Gaydos, of Fox News, ‘“Posters of U.S. women’s soccer star Megan Rapinoe were vandalized at a New York City subway station and police were investigating the incident as a possible hate crime,’ officials said.”

“The posters, some of which feature Rapinoe — clad in her U.S. soccer jersey — with the words ‘Dream with us’ scrawled across the center, had hateful messages written across her face and forehead, the New York Post reported, citing law enforcement sources.”

“The messages reportedly included words and phrases such as ‘shemale and screw this h-.’ ‘At least six Rapinoe posters were vandalized at the subway station located near Sixth Avenue and 42nd Street in Manhattan,’ police said.”

‘“Hate has no place in the transit system’ MTA spokesman Shams Tarek told the newspaper.”

But apparently hate does have a place in our national discourse when it comes to President Trump…, right, Megan?

Right, CNN?

Right, to the rest of our liberal propaganda media?

Rapinoe, who is gay, [which shouldn’t be any of our business] is an outspoken activist for the LGBT [Lesian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender] community and women’s rights.

It would appear that the democrats are telling women, and girls, that they have no rights…, except the right to remain silent when their best interests diverge from the liberal narrative.

I’m offended by you always being offended!

Extra!  Extra!  Read all about it!  America is still a “free” country!

We have freedom of speech here.

We have freedom of expression here.

I am free to be whatever I want or say whatever I want or think whatever I want and you have the right not to like it and vice versa.

You can choose to be offended all you want, and I have the right not to care and vice versa.

In the case I’m looking at here, a Kentucky BBQ restaurant is being attacked for “LGBTQ” shirts they are selling that have been deemed “offensive” by some.

In many places around the country, LGBTQ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer.”  On the other hand, many people don’t know what LGBTQ means, and they don’t really care.

According to Anna Hopkins for Fox News, “A Kentucky barbecue joint is facing serious blowback after some of their merchandise has been deemed inappropriate and offensive to the LGBTQ community.”

“Belle’s Smoking BBQ, which operates out of a food truck based in Williamstown, Ky., promoted their new t-shirts on social media this week, which are emblazoned with the slogan, ‘I support LGBTQ – Liberty, Guns, Bible, Trump, BBQ.’”

lgbtq 5

“Many were quick to respond …, calling the misappropriation of the ‘lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer’ slogan bigoted and harmful.”

Unless I’m mistaken, and from what I was able to learn, I’m not, the LGBTQ acronym is not legally trademarked.  This means anybody is free to use that acronym any way they want…, have it mean anything they want…, and have it stand for anything they want.

As much as the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community wants to believe they own that acronym…, they don’t.

‘“I posted the shirt for new swag and it just went out of hand and it got blowed up,’ Belle’s Smoking BBQ owner Jamie Smith told Fox 19.  He added that even before advertising the shirts on Facebook, he had sold about 100 of the shirts.”

“After the post went viral and was inundated with negative comments, Belle’s Smoking BBQ removed it from Facebook and issued a statement apologizing, but also arguing that some individuals were behaving hypocritically by calling their shirts hateful while also making threats to the owners.”

‘“Belle’s Smoking BBQ apologizes if we have offended any groups, organizations or individuals with our shirts,’ the statement began.”

‘“We respect all beliefs and lifestyles and want no ill will towards anyone. We know each person has their own thoughts and beliefs but we are hurt that the people who are saying, “stop the hate” are the ones coming at us with the harassing messages and threatening phone calls. Again we apologize for any hurt feelings and thank our supporters who truly know us.’”

The only people who have to worry about public opinion are politicians and businesses.  Hence the apology.

But the bottom line with all of this “being offended” stuff is we can never make everyone happy.  Someone is always going to find a reason to be offended…, about something…, even if it’s just one out of a million.

Case in point from a recent headline:

“LGBTQ GROUPS CONDEMN TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S CAMPAIGN TO END CRIMINALIZATION OF HOMOSEXUALITY WORLDWIDE AS STUNT”

What!?

Yes…, “LGBTQ GROUPS CONDEMN TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S CAMPAIGN TO END CRIMINALIZATION OF HOMOSEXUALITY WORLDWIDE AS STUNT”

According to Hollie McKay for Fox News, “The Trump administration, spearheaded by the openly gay U.S Ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, announced a new initiative aimed at bringing an end to the criminalization of homosexuality worldwide.”

“Wow,” you might say…, that’s a pretty noble initiative by President Trump and his administration.

“On January 10 in the southwestern Iranian city of Kazeroon, a 31-year-old man was publicly hanged, according to state-run media, after being found in guilty of the ultimate crime: homosexuality.”

“The man, whose identity was not released, was just one of more than 6,000 alleged to have been executed under the Islamic republic’s Sharia penal system. What’s more, Iran is just one of 73 countries where homosexuality is criminalized, and one of eight nations, alongside Afghanistan, Brunei, Mauritania, Sudan, Nigeria, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Somalia, where it is classified as an offense punishable by death.”

‘“The United States continues to work to protect and defend human rights for all. Governments have an obligation to ensure that all people can freely enjoy the universal human rights and fundamental freedoms to which they are entitled,’ a State Department spokesperson told Fox News this week. ‘Working to advance longstanding U.S. policy around human rights is the kind of work our Ambassadors do all around the world every day.’”

So what kind of problem could the LGBTQ community in The United States have with this type of initiative you might ask?  What would cause them to label the initiative as a “stunt?”

“The initiative has in large part not been praised my many gay, lesbian and transgender rights groups and activists in the United States, and has actually been met with considerable backlash and skepticism.”

“Jeremy Kadden, Senior International Policy Advocate for the Human Rights Campaign, the largest national lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer civil rights organization in the country, told Fox News: ‘If this commitment is real, we have a lot of questions about their intentions and commitments, and are eager to see what proof and action will follow.’”

“James Esseks, Director of the ACLU’s LGBT and HIV Project also censured the initiative. ‘Any talk from the Trump administration about improving life for LGBTQ people in other countries will ring hollow for the millions of LGBTQ people in America who have been under attack by this administration from day one,’ he stressed. ‘If the Trump administration wants to reduce the very real violence and discrimination faced by LGBTQ people, it should start at home by ensuring LGBTQ people are protected by our nation’s civil rights laws.’”

And Tarah Demant, Director of the Gender, Sexuality and Identity Program at Amnesty International pointed out that ‘Amnesty stands with activists calling for the decriminalization of homosexuality,’ but said they were concerned that key LGBT groups in the United States were not invited to the Grenell-led summit to kick of the campaign in Berlin this month.”

Oh, I get it now.  The anointed LGBTQ keepers of the discrimination “holy grail” were not paid proper homage to.

As usual with liberals…, it’s more about what is said than what is actually done.  The fact that this may actually help LGBTQ people around the world doesn’t really matter.  What only matters to these people is that they keep their cottage industry of being offended alive in order to justify their own existence.

Some members of the media and policy experts “view the vilifying of the campaign with collective frustration.”

‘“The left, and many on the right, have expressed concern about the harsh penalties for homosexuality in other nations for an extremely long time,’ noted Adam Weiss, CEO of AMW, a public relations firm. ‘President Trump is constantly hit with a barrage of baseless claims that he is harmful to the LGBT community, but this effort could potentially save many lives around the globe. Even when he is helping, they insist that he is hurting. It’s madness.’”

“According to Dan Gainor, VP of Business and Culture at the Media Research Center, ‘it’s a case of being damned if you do and damned if you do not.’”

“You can please some of the people some of the time, all of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time, but you can never please all of the people all of the time.” – Abraham Lincoln

On a side note…, a new “app” has been developed that identifies restaurants and businesses that are safe for conservatives to visit.

Think about that for a minute.

Have they needed an app that identifies restaurants and businesses that are safe for LGBTQ individuals to visit?

Just sayin’.
