Hope Solo Says That Megan Rapinoe Would "Almost Bully" Teammates Into Kneeling for the National Anthem

Hope Solo, who I almost want to call a Friend of the Blog (TM) for her popularity with some commenters, reveals the obvious: Social justice warriors are just bullies who've found a socially-permissible justification for their innate sociopathy.

Former U.S. women’s national team player Hope Solo said during a podcast last week that she saw teammate Megan Rapinoe "almost bully" players into kneeling for the national anthem.

"I've seen Megan Rapinoe almost bully players into kneeling because she really wants to stand up for something in her particular way, but it's our right as Americans to do it in whatever way we're comfortable with," Solo said on "All of US: The U.S. Women's Soccer Show" last Tuesday.

The former goalie described kneeling as "very divisive."


...

Rapinoe was also the first white athlete to follow Colin Kaepernick's kneeling protest against racism and discrimination. She drew blowback from U.S. Soccer, which later required its athletes to stand for the national anthem.

Last year, Rapinoe lauded Kaepernick during the ESPY Awards and said his 2016 protests left a lasting legacy. Time magazine ranked Rapinoe as one of the 100 most influential people of 2020 due to her impact on and "beyond the pitch."

Ryan Long points out that "woke" ideology has created a Golden Age for Sociopaths and Bullies.
