Megan An Ass Out Of Herself

Megan Rapinoe Is An Idiot

U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team member Megan Rapinoe, a woman with a net worth of $2 million who has access to private helicopters, knelt down during the national anthem last night to prove she “is down for the struggle.”

Rapinoe-Nothing then took the opportunity to remind us all how racist we are.

On Sunday night, women’s soccer player Megan Rapinoe followed the example of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick by taking a knee during the playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner” before her Seattle Reign played the Chicago Red Stars in an NWSL game.

“I am disgusted with way he has been treated and the fans and hatred he has received in all of this,” Rapione told ESPN’s Julie Foudy. “It is overtly racist. ‘Stay in your place black man.’ Just didn’t feel right to me. Need a more substantive conversation around race relations, & the way people of color treated.”

Hear that, everyone? A pasty white woman has determined any criticism of a black man – including, I guess, Jerry Rice’s well-publicized dissent – is racist. Ironically, that attitude assures there will never be a more substantive conversation around race relations. Well played, Meggy; I’ll bet you’re the smartest player on that team no one cares about.

  1. What nitwits like this don’t understand is Colon has freedom of speech, true, but he doesn’t have freedom from the consequences of his speech. If he did, then sexual harassment wouldn’t be an issue in the workplace.

  2. MelP – Absolutely correct. The government cannot restrict your freedom of speech. Your employer most certainly can. Sadly, the 49ers seem to have no problem with Kaepernick’s idiocy.

  3. Maybe I’m wrong, but when I played soccer, we knelt in respect of injured players. The problem wasn’t made when kaepernick knelt. The problem was made when he sat – kneeling was a side effect of us not carrying he was semi regretting his decision from sitting. How does she think kneeling is a nod to him? Kneeling is almost more respectful. I mean didn’t we used to show respect by kneeling before royalty, or am I just consider a naive, disrespectful white person?

  4. AV – Women’s professional soccer is not exactly a sport which boasts thousands of fans, and Rapinoe’s actions will not eradicate that fact. The league should have come out against her immediately.

    CJB – I will find you and smite you!!!

    Whitney – Perfectly stated. You are absolutely correct about the kneeling. It is a sign of respect in soccer. Rapinoe knows this, as I am sure Kaepernick does as well.
