Aw, shucks. Man, you hate to see it!

The U.S. women’s soccer team took a devastating 3-0 loss to Sweden early Wednesday morning in their Tokyo Olympic opener, breaking their 44-game winning streak.

All 22 players on Team USA took a knee in solidarity with the radical leftist group Black Lives Matter before the game, a major point of contention with U.S. fans.


Darn. An a$$-kicking from their archrival Sweden, a team that somebody on the US team (who cares who it really was) called "a bunch of cowards" after losing to them in the last Olympics.

Kneeling was only part of their protest. They also conducted a boycott of scoring goals to show their opposition to racism according to this trusted news source...

Inspiring: US Women's Soccer Team To Boycott Scoring Goals Until Racism Is Defeated

TOKYO—People were stunned after the U.S. women's soccer team lost to Sweden in the Olympics this week by a score of 3-0—until the team revealed they are boycotting scoring any goals until racism is defeated.

"Yeah, we didn't score any goals against Sweden last night, but that was totally on purpose," said star player and beloved activist Megan Rapinoe. "This isn't the time to score goals—when America is still racist. We totally could have beaten Sweden but we decided as a team that no goals will be scored until complete equality has been achieved in America. Also, we demand a hefty raise."

IT will be hard to get a pay raise, or even regular pay, when no one comes to see scoreless losses game after game. This is typical leftist progressive depth of thinking.

Did they hire a bunch of lawyers and file court cases to protest the result, state that the video you see on TV was doctored and they won the real game 2-0 but the Olympic Committee is corrupt and has covered it up, claim that Sweden used 13 players, claim the referee is the nephew of the Swedish Prime Minister but used a fake birth certificate to convince the OC that he was really a neutral from Nigeria, and make plans to occupy the gold medal stand for the ceremony even if they don't actually win it?

Nah, they wouldn't expect anyone would believe or stand for any of that. Little do they know...

That was probably an older photo, it seems that these ladies now have a new gig.

If they really wanted to protest, they should have stayed home.

Politics and sports and other forms of entertainment don’t mix. Does anyone remember the “Dixie Chicks”….I think they changed their names to a non-Confederate reference like Chicks…..but that could be termed sexist, so they should just call themselves the band that lost it all. :)

They were a good group of young singers for a time.
Then they went "mainstream" and used their God given rights to say and do things that alienate
people that just like to listen to music without preaching.

The Dixie Chicks are now The Chicks. They spoke up for what they believed in, and paid a price for it. I respect that. They took a hit, but their net worth is somewhere north of $150M, so your concern for their well being is portably not on their radar. They are still performing, but surely most republicans have denied themselves any access to their music. And their music is quite good.

Probably only lefties go to their shows and buy their music.

Shouldn't the lefties be out in force to 'Ban the Olympics'?
It is a racial competition, after all. Where is their outrage?

No. This was right wing satire that needed to fictionalize real events in order to make its point.

Like all good satire, there’s a kernel of truth, but the words recorded were not actually spoken.

So no, this is not an example of anyone’s typical thinking, or spoken words- except for the person who made them up at Babylon Bee.

Example similar satirist on the left- Andy Borowitz.

Thanks for the clarification, it is so true to form for todays leftist progressives that, as you say, the kernel of truth makes these silly things seem so believable.

Thae photo with 3 players standing was an old photograph from a February match in Orlando according to a fact-check by USA Today.

You're being gaslighted. When CNN says they all kneeled you (a rarity) can believe them because it is a statement against interest.
