The biggest racists are always the ones screaming “racism”.
Olympian Gwen Berry’s disturbing history of tweets where she joked about rape, threatened to stomp a child, slurred white people, attacked Latinos, and made racist generalizations about Chinese individuals is coming back to haunt her.
Berry will represent the U.S. in hammer throwing this month in the Tokyo Games. She made headlines during the trials for turning her back as the national anthem played while covering her face with an “Activist Athlete” shirt and for disrespecting the American flag. Now, problematic tweets that are from her verified account are resurfacing. Some of them are decades old.
Her actions have been politically polarizing. She has received strong support from the left and the White House. But conservatives have denounced her actions and called for her to leave the Games.
Berry is refusing to cave and is angrily firing back at her detractors. Turning Point USA’s Benny Johnson tweeted to Berry: “Oh Gwen – you should RESPECT the American Flag and the National Anthem if you want to compete for TEAM USA.” She clapped back at him: “The point is to compete … which I will be doing.”
The tweets were uncovered on Friday by various people on the internet. The first to report on them was The National Pulse.
……Protesting is nothing new for Berry. She raised her fist to make a point during the completion of trials last week and has made no secret of how she feels about the national anthem or the American flag. She reportedly claims to not hate America but seems to have an issue with everything it stands for. In an interview with the Black News Channel, she made it clear that she never said she didn’t want to represent America at the Olympics.
……After turning her back during the Olympic qualifiers ceremony, she asserted that she felt set up because she was told that the anthem would play before she took the podium.
“They had enough opportunities to play the National Anthem before we got up there,” Berry declared. “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 was p***ed, to be honest,” she stated.
“They said they were going to play it before we walked out, then they played it when we were out there,” she added. “… But I don’t really want to talk about the anthem because that’s not important. The anthem doesn’t speak for me. It never has.”
The triggered knee grow princess is pissed because they played the anthem when she made her grand appearance at the podium, not before so she wouldn’t have to hear it.
The anthem speaks for the entire country, except malcontents who bitch the loudest, like condescending Hollywood actors, leftwing ‘activists’, and athletes who use the playing field for political statements. They never pack up and leave for countries better suited to their needs. They just continue to stick around and run their mouths. They contribute nothing to the country except division and violence.
There should be a GoFundMe set up to buy one way tickets out of the country for the disgruntled expat wannabes. The only stipulation: don’t ever come back.
