White Guilt and the Tyranny of the Minority

Joe Biden said he “respects” Gwen Berry’s Childish Olympic Protest. 

Berry called the playing of the National Anthem  a “setup” – in that I guess she believes everything is about her, the third place winner in the Olympic tryouts hammer throw competition.

“I feel like it was a setup, and they did it on purpose,” Berry said of when the anthem played. “I was pissed, to be honest.”

“They had enough opportunities to play the national anthem before we got up there,” Berry said in Oregon, where the Olympic trials are being hosted. “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.

I’d agree that it was a setup, but I question who set it up. Seriously, do all the female (regardless of the preferred pronoun) Olympic hammer throwers wear 6 inch eyelash crawlers for the competition? And carry their “Activist Athlete” t-shirt with them just in case they feel the need to protest the offensive playing of the national anthem of the country they’ve freely chosen to represent?

Probably not. But whereas we live in America, the (formerly) land of free speech I, like Joey, can “respect” Gwen’s decision to act like a petulant child. However that by no means requires me to refrain from excoriating her for her inappropriate anti-American diatribe (uh-oh, “tribe” - a word I’m not supposed to use anymore). It doesn’t mean she shouldn’t face consequences for her behavior; I’m in favor of throwing her off Team USA as she clearly hates the USA. Why would we want her representing us?

But no. As we are currently living not in the land of the free but rather in the land of the tyrannical minority, Little Miss-it’s-all-about-me will instead get a huge contract with somebody - most likely Nike: we’re-all-about-China - to hawk their shoes and become a millionaire – which has always been Gwen’s real objective.

“I don’t need to do anything sport-wise,” she said. “What I need to do is speak for my community, to represent my community and to help my community. Because that’s more important than sports.”

Let’s be clear: the “community” that she represents is a community of one.

As it is for the lot of these BLM, ANTIFA, Take-a-Knee Anti-American exhibitionists; i.e. “believe in something, even if it costs you everything” Kaepernick. The hypocrisy drips from these characters like condensation from an AC unit on a 101 degree day.
