Crenshaw Blasts Disrespectful Athlete Berry

Dems have the majority in the House and Senate. They have Biden in the WH and an open southern border due to extreme negligence on Kamala Harris’s part. They practically have everything that they want, but it’s never enough. Olympic Hammerthrower Gwen Berry shamed the country when she refused to face the flag during the National Anthem. She claimed she was protesting systematic racism in our country… Rep. Crenshaw saw this and basically told Berry to shape up or get out.

“Representative Dan Crenshaw (R., Texas) is calling for Gwen Berry, a hammer thrower, to be removed from the Olympic team after she turned her back on the American flag and covered her face with a shirt that said “Activist Athlete” during the national anthem on Saturday.

“We don’t need any more activist athletes,” Crenshaw said during an appearance on Fox & Friends. “She should be removed from the team. The entire point of the Olympic team is to represent the United States of America. It’s the entire point.”

He added: “It’s one thing when these NBA players do it — OK, fine, we’ll stop watching — but now the Olympic team? And it’s multiple cases of this.”

“They should be removed, that should be the bare minimum requirement is that you believe in the country” you are representing, he said.

Berry responded to the criticism:

“My purpose and my mission is bigger than sports. I’m here to represent those … who died due to systemic racism. That’s the important part. That’s why I’m going. That’s why I’m here today.”

“These comments really show that: 1.) people in American rally patriotism over basic morality 2.) Even after the murder of George Floyd and so many others; the commercials, statements, and phony sentiments regarding black lives were just a hoax,” Berry tweeted.

The Olympics really are all about national pride. If Berry doesn’t have it, then she should give someone else the opportunity to be there. Anyone can succeed in this country regardless of race or gender. Just look at Berry she is a black woman representing the United States, as one of our best athletes.
