He Seems Nice

“We don’t need any more activist athletes,” [Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX)] said. “You know, [hammer thrower Gwen Berry] should be removed from the team. The entire point of the Olympic team is to represent the United States of America. That’s the entire point.”

Because nothing says America like enforced patriotism.

    Yeah, well we don’t need any more redneck asshole congresscritters who don’t understand basic civics and common decency, but it seems that texass and floriduh are unfortunately chock full of such cretins.

    If there’s no one there to salute it, does a flag really give a shit? Nothing to see here, just another Xtian idol worshiper.

    Never forget, as George Carlin once intoned, “The flag is just a symbol, for symbol-minded people.”

    I’m not one pass up the chance to tell the Dan Crenshaw’s of this party “fuck you for your service.” Gwen Berry has every right to use her platform for freedom of expression. Also, she is awesome.
