Why Do Some People Have Their Heads Up Their Rectums, And Insist On Advertising It?

The claim:

[quote]"SHAMEFUL: Several members of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team turned their backs as 98-year-old World War II veteran Pete DuPré played the National Anthem on his harmonica," one Facebook user wrote on July 5.[/quote]

What actually happened:

[quote]Some members of the team are seen in the video facing opposite directions, however, [b][i][u]they were looking at a flag located at the end of the stadium[/u][/i][/b], not turning their back on Dupré, as the post claims. [/quote]

And today, the same haters, as they claim patriotism, are reveling in the US women's national soccer team's loss to Sweden. How patriotic of them. This is the same team that wrapped itself in US flags as they won the World cup, in France, a couple of years ago.

Oh, and as a reminder dimwits: the US team is NOT out of the tourney. This was game one. Next game on Saturday against New Zealand, and the one after that on Tuesday against Australia.

I will be watching and cheering. What will you fake patriots be doing?

They cheer as "patriots" beat cops with that flag. They bow down to a flag with the image of their leader superimposed on it.
Then find anything that vaguely looks like a snub, and attack as though that flag has true meaning for them.

As far as the womens soccer team...they will find anything to hate on them for. Simply because they had the audacity to be better than the mens team and ask to be compensated in the same manner.
