“Why are We Tolerating Megan Rapinoe’s Endless Spew of Self-Righteous Drivel?” Who is this Pseudo-Left Sacred-Cow Anyway?

Quote from the following article:

…Rapinoe is beginning to sound not only like a mirror Trump or Diego Maradona at his coke messiah peak … she seems a couple of interviews away from going full-on Charlie Sheen talking about “WINNING!” and “tiger blood.”

All while the media hails her as a “national treasure” and dismisses her critics as sexists who cannot handle self-proclaimed “badass” women. The brasher you are, the more like an alpha male caricature, the more empowered, apparently.

Perhaps she really is “iconic” if your political and personal views align perfectly with Rapinoe’s. Surely, though even her allies must cringe occasionally at her antics, and pretending she is some unifying figure of diversity, rather than a polarizing loudmouth, particularly grates…

What an asshole!

It’s about time someone brought this particular pseudo-left sacred-cow bullshit up. Even thirty years ago, this alphabet-clown and her GIRL’S SOCCER TEAM would have been a non-news item. I mean, after all, it’s just fucking soccer, and girl’s soccer at that. And on top of it being a ‘sport’ that comes in several variations, hockey (with a stick and puck on ice), lacrosse (with a ball and netted stick) and field hockey (with a short hockey stick, short-skirts and a ball), soccer isn’t even close to being the national pass-time. But here it is in all of its boring-ass, way-over-hyped glory.

And it makes one wonder, What the fuck is all this over-the-top hoopla all about? Is all of this pomp and circumstance really about a girl’s soccer victory, or is it, more likely, just one more mind-fuck, which is being perpetrated by the elite-swine pseudo-left, in order to continue their divide and conquer tactic of seeking to nullify the NATURAL fact that there are only two genders?

I watched a couple minutes of two of these games, and I always rooted for the team facing these U.S. ‘BADASS’ Bitches! What a joke, “BADASS”, these are girls playing girls, and at a sport that is almost as intimidating as playing hide and go seek.

In Europe and other areas of the world, where men’s soccer is played, the field officials carry concealed weapons, in order to protect themselves from the players and fans. And you assholes on the pseudo-left whine about American football being such a ‘violent game’. When was the last time you saw a riot at a college or NFL football game? Check out the sad history of riots at soccer games in Europe alone. As usual, the pseudo-left has its POLITICALLY-CORRECT HEAD firmly planted up its COMPLETELY-INTOLERANT ASS:

Why are we tolerating Megan Rapinoe’s endless spew of self-righteous drivel?

Published time: 11 Jul, 2019

Powered by nothing more than wokeness and self-regard Megan Rapinoe threatens to go on an intergalactic ego trip – but we are forced to earnestly listen to every pronouncement of this “shero.”

One could forgive a soccer player for losing their head after leading their team to a World Cup, but Rapinoe had evidently decided to turn the past month into her personal political pulpit from which to issue her reference-free assertions before a ball had been kicked in France.

From the intellectually dishonest and self-serving demands for “equal” pay, to the claim that “you can’t win without gays” (“that’s science, right there” she assured, vaguely) to boasts that she wouldn’t “f**king go to the White House” if invited after winning.

Now that she has backed up her talk, being named the best player at the tournament, Rapinoe has taken it up a notch, telling Rachel Maddow who she will and won’t deign to talk to in Washington (those prepared to have “a real substantive conversation, and that believes in the same things that we believe in” which is Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez). On Wednesday, she used the victory parade speech in New York to tell Donald Trump what he “needs” to do.

Where does she get off?

I don’t mind Rapinoe’s purple hair, sexuality, prolific public dancing, swearing in front of children, exuberant goal celebrations against minnows, or posing with champagne while shouting “I deserve this!” Even pushing away the American flag during a victory routine, or kneeling during the national anthem are personal choices. She has her right to an opinion and to her persona.

[…]

Yet Rapinoe is beginning to sound not only like a mirror Trump or Diego Maradona at his coke messiah peak … she seems a couple of interviews away from going full-on Charlie Sheen talking about “WINNING!” and “tiger blood.”

All while the media hails her as a “national treasure” and dismisses her critics as sexists who cannot handle self-proclaimed “badass” women. The brasher you are, the more like an alpha male caricature, the more empowered, apparently.

Perhaps she really is “iconic” if your political and personal views align perfectly with Rapinoe’s. Surely, though even her allies must cringe occasionally at her antics, and pretending she is some unifying figure of diversity, rather than a polarizing loudmouth, particularly grates.

Without wanting to sound pompous – is it appropriate for someone who uses their cachet as leader of the national team for publicity to alienate half the nation’s voters while standing in front of the Stars and Stripes? Would her assurances that none of her teammates would go to meet the president be considered overbearing if it was Hillary Clinton she did not want to meet? Why does she always deliver her opinions with such finality, despite having no real qualifications beyond being a football player?

Where is the line between cocky right-on activist and obnoxious bully?

Somehow, one suspects that self-obsessed militancy plays less well with the majority of the public outside the media bubble, if only for reasons of basic manners. Or put it this way, if she really did run against the incumbent in 2020, as a hypothetical poll asked last week, would it be the Democrats or the Republicans who would be celebrating? In fact, as long as she remains in the headlines Trump will already treat her like a campaign adversary, knowing that every time her face appears, his base is more likely to turn out and vote.

  1. Well Tubularsock has never been a big sports fan of any type and spends little time being involved with grown men and women running, kicking, bouncing, hitting balls and pucks. What the fuck?

    Anyway. Tubularsock was just sitting minding his own business when on a side panel of some reading Tubularsock was doing there was a message.

    It said that Megan Rapinoe, a person Tubularsock had never heard of was quoted saying about going to the White House : “FUCK the White House!”

    At that moment Tubularsock became a FAN of Megan Rapinoe.

    Now in Tubularsock’s opinion it is Igor Ogorodnev that is full of shit rather than Rapinoe. He seems to feel a little castrated it appears to Tubularsock.

    Igor seems to have an axe to grind and insisting that it’s only “girl” soccer as opposed to women and that MEN’S soccer is “badass” because sometimes “. . . field officials carry concealed weapons, in order to protect themselves . . .” like that is something more badass than the insanity that it is.

    No Igor is frightened of lesbians and just maybe he needs to carry a concealed weapon to protect himself. He’s such a badass.

    And as for the American Flag shit, Tubularsock feels at the beginning of ever game that the flag should be burned as the players piss on it to put it out! PLAY BALL!

  2. Well, speak right out, Tube! You played the pseudo left card here: “He’s jealous”. How predictable, Tube.

    So you didn’t watch the games, and you didn’t know who this bitch was, but you have an opinion anyway.

    This is the longest remark I have ever gotten from you, by the way.

    I posted this, first and foremost, because I am a hater of soccer, male of female version. And I could care less if this bitch eats pussy or sucks dick. But she needs to stop ramming her ‘orientation’ down everyone else’s throats, along with her faux-feminist shit as well.

    The brain dead millennial types are even turning on the alphabet people, because they are sick of their constant fucking whining. They are a tiny minority, and they need to behave themselves before they end up back in that damn closet again.

    Oh, and I don’t give a shit about the flag either, which you, Tube, should already be more than aware of by now.

    Your democrat slip is showing, Tube! You’ve let the Donald get to you! Get over it!

    P.S.

    It isn’t because he’s Russian, is it, Tube, you Russophobe you!

    Only kidding.

    You caught me on a bad day, Tube. The physical is sucking ass right now, sleep is out of the question, and so I am short-tempered even more than usual. This entire team pissed me off, the way they disrespected the players from other countries. And they carried the flag and bled red, white and blue, the shit I hate!

  3. Now sojourner, don’t get lost in the pseudo jargon. Igor isn’t “Jealous” he’s triggered!

    As is demonstrated here with “. . . seeking to nullify the NATURAL fact that there are only two genders?”

    Natural? Says who? THE CHURCH? Seem to Tubularsock that Igor isn’t really solid in his own masculinity. Poor boy.

    So he sees “A gun” as the equalizer to being a BADASS-MAN.

    Give Tubularsock a break.

    Tubularsock doesn’t have to see any games to know Megan speaks the TRUTH when she say FUCK THE WHITE HOUSE. Pretty wise woman if you ask Tubularsock.

    AND NO it is not that Igor is Russian it is because that Igor should mind his own business and return to his job of delivering brains to Dr. Frankenstein.

    It is obvious that Igor needs a new brain as well!

    And Tubularsock loves you on a “bad day” it brings out the best in you, sojourner.

    As for sleep ……. don’t. The American public is doing enough of that for all of us!

    Keep your powder dry ……… before you snort it!

    Odd how even a Revolutionary War comment has an entirely new meaning today.

    The times ARE a’changing!

    Cheers!

  4. I hear ya. I’m just surprised at how pissed you are over this.

    And needless to say, I didn’t go along with everything this guy said. Hell, I wouldn’t publish anything, if I had to agree with everything in an article. And her slamming Trump was more than fine with me. It’s the rest of her shit that pisses me off, she’s a god damn whiner, a fucking professional wah wah!

    ‘The times ARE a’changing!” Yep, all the fuckin’ time, and without end. Maybe it’s time for a break from constant change, from constant insanity and turmoil, especially since this quote is a half century old.

    “We all need a break today” is a more recent quote, even though its capitalist piggy! This is why we are all insane or opioid addicts!

    I know I could sure as hell use a little bit of the same old, same old, and I don’t think I’m alone!

    But as I said, fuck, suck and lick all you want, but get off the fucking pulpit for a while, Beotch. Or in other words, she needs to quit her fucking bitching, along with the other sacred-cows snowflakes.

    It’s getting old and stale as shit! Fuck, they are running the entire god damn show now! And that’s fine, because the show sucks ass, but shut the fuck up for a minute or two.

    And fuck natural! What is natural? We sure as fuck don’t know! None of us!

    I’m trying to keep the powder dry, but I’m not having much success.

    Thanks, Tube! Ya old fart!
