The U.S. soccer team refuses to be demure, ladylike, or apologetic. No wonder conservative pundits are hopping mad. ⚽️⚽️⚽️🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 salon.com/2019/07/09/wom…
Fox News’s Jesse Watters, for instance, was lecturing the #USWNT for failing to treat Trump, who calls women “pigs” and “dogs”, with respect. This expectation that women play nice with abusive men is pure sexism.
Conservatives also flat-out lied about Rapinoe, falsely accusing her of “stomping” on the flag. The homophobia and misogyny is naked.
Conservatives want to equate patriotism with mindless support of Trump. But our soccer team shows the opposite: That standing up to the wannabe fascist in the White House is the true patriotism. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸⚽️⚽️⚽️
