So when they were at the podium to receive their medal for the Olympic trials the National Anthem began to play. Two of the athletes faced the flag with their hands on their heart, one decided the proper response was to turn her back on the flag, hang her head and cover it with a black 'activist athlete' shirt. When asked about it, she says it was very disrespectful. No, not what she did, them playing the National Anthem was extremely disrespectful to her.

"They had enough opportunities to play the national anthem before we got up there," Berry said, according to The New York Post. "I was thinking about what I should do. Eventually I stayed there and I swayed, I put my shirt over my head. It was real disrespectful."

Because the Olympic trials are clearly all about her and they need to have everything scheduled around her to make sure she doesn't hear it. Clearly she is not there to compete for America and Americans. She should be removed from the team.

Such a free country.

If you don't assume the right stance you aren't 'patriotic'.

So much for that 'rebel spirit' of 1776.

LOL

We aren't talking 'the right stance', we are talking intentional turning of the back and covering the face and saying hearing the anthem is 'disrespectful'.

If you don't want to represent your country you shouldn't be at the Olympics doing so.

*represents America

If 'good folks that do nothing' keep allowing libtards like this thing to define the USA by virtue of the TV coverage this dickhead gets, you reap the consequences people.

Yes, she is a dickhead, and clearly brainwashed to be a 'activist' - hows that for "a rebel spirit of 1776 for such a free country"

Did I mention shes an attention whore?

She can do as she pleases, she just can't do it on my tax dollars. She is asking ME to pay for her speech, and that's not happening.

That is a big reason the NBA/NFL have lost so much. People are sick of watching a bunch pf pampered athletes pushing a political agenda.

If she wants to use her 15 minutes of fame to be a "activist athlete", go for it, but do it on your own time. When you stand on that podium you represent the United Sates. Have some class.

Statements such as those coming from someone who lives in a country whose President is so woke and progressive you're unlikely to need any more democratic elections.

LMFAO.

I was a big sports fan and now I’m pretty much down to the UFC. To me it’s the only sport left. All the sports have catered to the lowest common denominator in an attempt to be more inclusive and increase their bottom line at the expense of their base. The base has to leave because the others will not keep them afloat. Just turn your back to them and watch the UFC.

IKR, shame she can't play for a communist country or something, I mean, performing at the Olympics, she doesn't need to show pride in the country she is representing.

The anthem was written by a slave owner, and contains the line " No refuge could save the hireling and slave "

Maybe that's why she turned her back. Best to ask her i suppose.
