If it’s true, this is damning.

As if the women’s national soccer team wasn’t already unlikable enough due to anti-Trump stars, right?

The absence of one of the best women’s soccer players in the nation from the national squad that just won the World Cup has prompted questions as to whether she didn’t make the team because of her openly professed Christian faith.

Jaelene Hinkle, 26, “has been called the top left defender in the U.S. game,” according to The Washington Times. Fox News noted Hinkle “helped her team win the NWSL championship and previously helped it win a title in 2016 when it was known as the Western New York Flash.”

But none of that apparently mattered to the women’s team. The Irish Times, which called Hinkle “the finest left-back in the NWSL,” wrote in June, “Hinkle likely would have been a fish out of water on the uber-woke women’s national team, some of whose biggest stars are openly lesbian, raising questions about whether she would have thrown off the squad’s chemistry.”

Allie Long, one of the players on the team, was apparently really excited to win the World Cup title.

So excited, in fact, that she dropped the American flag between her legs after the victory and partook in a choreographed celebratory dance with teammates Megan Rapinoe and Alex Morgan.

Rapinoe is a controversial figure who made good on her promise to ignore the National Anthem before the game as a protest against President Trump, totally spitting in the faces of all the veterans who have shed blood and given their lives to preserve her liberty.

Fellow teammate Kelley O’Hara raced to pick up the dropped flag during the incident.

Well, Benghazi hero, John “TIG” Tiegen, was none too happy with the display.

From TheBlaze:

Benghazi hero John “TIG” Tiegen hopped on Instagram after Long’s flag drop and called it a “clown show to promote disrespect.”

What should be an amazing occurence, is hijacked by the clown show to promote disrespect. So brave ????. Let ???? @uswnt and @allie_long_ know what you think about this disrespect in the comments ???? — Credit: @mikewishniausa • • • • • • @uswnt I know you gave a brief to the girls on proper flag etiquette. @allie_long_ , I know dragging it on the ground and throwing it down like it’s a piece of paper isn’t part of that. It’s not hard to hand it off and celebrate. Your coaching staff or trainers are there to take it. Damn Amazing disrespect for a photo op. Thank you to I think @kelleyohara for running in there and picking it up. #uswnt #worldcup #usopc #ussoccer #flag #oldglory #flagettiquette #unreal #notapieceofpaper #usparalympics #paralympian #thrower #shotput #power #speed #strength

In this day and age, disrespecting the flag has become a badge of honor among the more radical factions of the progressive movement. It’s become increasingly more common for left-wing protesters to be seen burning Old Glory at rallies.

You also hear tons of stories about how local governments are going all out to regulate how people can display the flag, something which is truly shameful in a land that is supposed to pride itself on liberty.

The flag is not just a piece of cloth. It is a symbol for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, of the rights handed down to us by God and protected by the Constitution.

The amount of blood that has been spilled by our brave men and women over the years is impossible to quantify. When someone disrespects the flag, they disrespect those brave souls who sacrificed everything to ensure our way of life could continue long after they’re gone.

It’s time for folks on the left to grow up and show some respect for those who gave more than they ever will in service to their country and the principles on which it stands.

Save conservative media!

Black Lives Matter Rioter to Cop: ‘I Hope Someone Kills Your Whole F— Family!’ (Video)

Highly disturbing…

Do some people wake up and say, “ya know, I’m gonna do everything in my power to put another person down simply because I hate my country and want to see everything change dramatically!” Antifa radicals probably do. What happened in Portland the other day is a complete disgrace. And it won’t receive an iota of coverage from the mainstream media.

Thousands upon thousands of politically ignorant lefties decided to stand shoulder-to-shoulder and blame every single police officer living today for the death of George Floyd. And now, Americans are paying the price — again. According to people like Bill de Blasio, the protests were called for. Religious gatherings, however, not so much.

AOC Says Crime Spike In New York May Be Due to People Being ‘Scared to Pay Their Rent’

Wait…what?

There are comedians and then there’s AOC. She’s a whole different kind of funny and she doesn’t even realize it. Facepalm. From The Daily Wire: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) claimed on Sunday that the surge in crime in New York City is happening because people are “scared to pay their rent” and because of high unemployment numbers due to the pandemic. Ocasio-Cortez made the remarks and other misleading statements during a Zoom video call that was posted to Twitter by The Hill. WATCH: https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1282358303549464578?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1282358303549464578%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Focasio-cortez-nyc-crime-surge-maybe-due-to-people-being-scared-to-pay-their-rent-dont-have-jobs Protests around the nation are largely dominated by white liberals. They believe they are helping the black community combat racism by agreeing with the radical wing that law enforcement should be defunded. It literally makes zero sense. From The Daily Wire: On Thursday, Ami Horowitz released a new video to YouTube in which he asks white and black New Yorkers if they “support abolishing the police.” Their answers are…quite different. […] When asked about the relationship between the NYPD and members of the community, a man wearing a blue Nike hat claims that “it’s pretty good,” noting that “all police officers are not bad,” and that there are ones who “really care about the people and really want to help the people.” VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jv5-mc4U_Zw&feature=emb_title
