Megyn Kelly has ripped the “woke” US women’s soccer team after a disgraceful display on the world stage when they snubbed the national anthem.
Only three players from the squad – Julie Ertz, Alyssa Naeher, and Lindsey Horan – sang the national anthem before the USWNT’s game with Vietnam.
The rest of the “woke” squad remained silent during “The Star Spangled Banner” while it played at the opening of the World Cup at Eden Park in New Zealand on Saturday.
Kelly put the blame squarely on radical soccer player Megan Rapinoe.
“I really do believe their version of what a feminist is, what it means to be an empowered woman, at least as an American woman, means you need to hate your country.
“It means to go out on the national stage and embarrass yourself and your country by not singing the national anthem.
“For several of them, not even holding their hands over their hearts when the national anthem played, that was a bridge too far.
“They couldn’t be bothered to actually place their hand on their heart as the national anthem played, as they stood out there representing you and me and the country and our military and people who have given their lives for the country that they represent.
“It was too much of an effort for them to place their hand over their heart, or God forbid, sing.
“And by the way, Megan Rapinoe, too.
“She’s on the team. She announced her retirement.
“She said she’ll never stand again for the national anthem, this team behavior is clearly, I think, as a result of her influence, and it’s disgusting.
“What an incredible opportunity to stand out there, representing the United States of America in World Cup soccer, and you can’t be shamed into at least feigning a touch of patriotism.
“We’re disgusting I guess when it comes to human rights.
“This is what people like Rapinoe have said in the past.
“So we can’t be saluted in any way.
“This woman Megan Rapinoe has a problem.
“Just last week, she was out there saying, ‘What’s the matter with trans athletes playing against women? Where are all these trans athletes who are taking away women’s rights?’
“Obviously she’s a dumbass who pays no attention to the news.
“It would take about two seconds of a Google for you to come up with a long list which I read to her in part when she made that inane statement.”
