Understanding that Free speech is a cornerstone...

Does anyone else think this woman is a complete fool/tool?

Wasnt aware of her until you brought it up - searched around got the impression she is upset with the current administration. Didnt really see anything that would qualify her as a fool/tool.

She's yet another in a long line of athletes speaking up & protesting Trump's bigotry and misogynistic views. There's a reason so many athletes have skipped a time honored tradition of visiting the White House. Trump has earned the bypasses by being himself. Once he is removed from the White House, hopefully things will return to a sense of normalcy.

same debate about whether observing the anthem at sports events to protest political views is warranted. I am probably in the minority but i dont believe anyone should demonstrate in that manner because it is offensive to so many others who respect what our flag and anthem stand for.

I believe point this in professional sports it is one thing but i believe when you are on a national team representing our country it is despicable behavior. I am not sure who subsidizes the US Women's Soccer Team but i am sure it somehow would be our government similar to olympics and other events our country participates in.

that being said, she should not be allowed to participate IMO if that is how she chooses to behave. Others will differ, I am sure.

Nope. If she had said it about a Democratic White House, you wouldn't have an issue with it at all.

Trump is not a king. No President is. If someone doesn't want to go somewhere, so be it.

Yeah, yeah, honor the office and all that. That's now a myth forever destroyed.

Exactly. Just like when those black kids decided to sit at a lunch counter in a Woolworth's that everyone knew was white - totally offensive. I'm with you, they were way out of line and deserved the humiliation they got.

Why can't we just man up grow a spine and be like North Korea and Iran, and teach some respect for our national symbols.

Its her choice not to go, and her right under the 1st ammendment of the constitution to speak out.

An even more class act. Our president the guy who drapes himself in the flag, avoided Vietnam with five deferments, and looking out for Russia first over our intel agencies. What a leader we have.

I'll take Megan any day over Trump.

You would be chuckling and defending free speech if say Ted Nugent used the same language re the Obama White House. She used a swear word, how terribly incorrect! If I posted whining about the Nuge swearing about Obama, you would go into overdrive on an anti-PC rant. lol

I would?..Haha. I have repeatedly spoken about my respect for President Obama as being an articulate speaker and a man with dignity.

Ted Nugent and Ms, Rapinoe are perfectly suited for one another; birds of a feather

OK, then it sounds like it isn't a partisan complaint, you just take umbrage at the use of profanity.

Took a while to boil that down but Im hearing you are ok with the profanity but are offended because she won't put her hand over her heart during the national anthem. Free societies can be frustrating.

See now if this was Iran or North Korea you wouldnt have to put up with this crap, she would be dead or in a gulag already.

I am addressing this from one direction only, her choice to disrespect the nation she represents.

I repeat, a real class act.

So you are simply stating you feel she is unbearably rude, but respect her right to express herself.

When it comes to sports, it's better to keep your mouth shut until after the game (Joe Namath being the exception and Megan Rapinoe is no Joe Namath). If the US women's team wins it all, then Megan can pop off all she wants.

That being said, I wouldn't want to visit the president either. Plenty of better things to do with one's free time.

I's love to take a tour of the Whitehouse, as long as the current occupant isn't home. Besides, if I want a hamberder I can get one somewhere else and with better company.

I haven't been following this that closely. Has she been praising murderous dictators like Putin or Kim Jong Un or something? Has she been insulting American POWs for getting caught? Has she done something to poison American's air and drinking water? I'm curious what she did that was so bad.

She won't put her hand over her heart and sing the anthem. Doesn't take a knee, she stands, but with hands on hips. Can you believe that? The nerve.

I would say quite the opposite BIGV, I would say this woman is courageous and cares about her country a great deal, hence she was able to stand up and express her beliefs, I would say we have another young patriot, willing to stand up against and fight against societal injustice and administrative corruption!!!! Yes, I did find her choice of f words slightly offensive, but only about .0001% as offensive as Trumpty Dumpty, gutting our Nation over the last 3-4yrs and selling it to the Russians??...........Peace........joe

Seriously? We have over 100 documented instances of the Trumpty Campaign have contact with Russian operatives/spies
and I should be upset because this young lady dropped an f bomb? Please...........
