FOX News Goes After Gabby Douglas And Team USA Gymnasts And Debates Whether Olympic Uniforms Are Patriotic Enough, Does This Surprise Anyone About This Bigoted TV Network?
Aside from the fact, that Gabby Douglas nor any of her other Olympians picked their own uniforms. The Olympic Committee chose them. But that is irrelevant. How can they degrade the power, professionalism, patriotism and success of this young African American lady? Forget she made world history, just start picking her apart, which is all this network ever does to African Americans who don’t look and sound like Condoleezza Rice, Clarence Thomas or Thomas Sowell. Vile attacks on American heroes while they are on foreign soil would be considered treason by anyone else’s standards, but not for Fox Noise, which is the arbiter of what is American to a long list of right-wing viewers and listeners. Shame on all of you who support this network, and don’t realize the damage it’s doing to Americans.
Fox News had one burning question to raise after Gabby Douglas’ gold medal performance at the women’s gymnastics individual all-around competition in London: how is the athlete showing her patriotism if her uniform lacks stars and stripes?
On last week’s “America Live,” guest-host Alisyn Camerota discussed how “some folks” noticed that the “famous flag-styled outfits” of Olympics past were replaced by “yellow shirts, grey track suits and pink leotards” at the London games. Camerota and her guest, Sirius/XM radio host David Webb, took particular focus on Douglas’ outfit.
“You know, Gabby had that great moment, and everyone was so excited, and she’s in hot pink — and that’s her prerogative,” Camerota said. Webb, who hosts a program on Sirius/XM’s “Patriot” channel, wondered, “What’s wrong with showing some pride?” He likened the uniform choice to a “kind of soft anti-American feeling that Americans can’t show their exceptionalism.” Camerota pointed out how other nations, like China, wore nationalistic colors. “We’re a very nationalistic nation,” Webb said of America. “But we’ve also lost over time that jingoistic feeling.” Yeah, only Fixed Noise and their Uncle Tom guests, who have not ever competed in the Olympics would want America to be more like China.
We all know Gabby Douglas learned with Joe Lewis and other African American heroes learn. You will be picked apart by your nation, so you have to be stronger and work harder to achieve and still be shown some level of respect. Shame of FOX News, then again, their brainwashed viewers won’t care about this scurrilous attack by a network that is nothing but TV garbage. Don’t worry Gabby and TEAM USA. America and the world celebrates you, while extremists on the right look for ways to further degrade young people while they pretend they are the moral beacon on the planet. Now even CHILDREN are fair game on this daffy duck network! Bring your GOLD Medals home, dear. You are making most of us proud!
You can bring home a Gold Medal, but your country can still put you down! Forget the motto of JFK, “Ask not, what your country can do for you, ask, what you can do for your country.” Gabby has learned what most young minorities have learned in America over the past four years. Success and hard work is only respected for Caucasian kids, not for blacks or other minorities. How sad! This is the country old people are leaving their children and grandchildren, and should be ashamed of themselves. Alas, they are not!
