Remember when US Olympians were patriotic and proud to win Olympic Gold Medals representing America? Well, that time has passed, and red, white, and blue is out, replaced by that new all-American color . . . prison gray?!
I’m not watching the televised Olympic coverage on NBC because of the Olympic Games history of anti-Semitism, anti-Israel, and Islamo-pandering sentiments and actions. But there is one thing that I cannot miss in all of the photos and news reports of the games: the unpatriotic, un-American, dull gray color of the Olympic uniforms all Team USA athletes wear when they are on the medal stand. Why was the U.S. Olympic Committee so embarrassed of the red, white, and blue that is normally emblazoned on U.S. Olympians’ medal stand warm-ups? I don’t think I need to ask the question, since it’s been very clear for years that the USOC doesn’t give a crap about patriotism and doesn’t want to offend the rest of the world by wearing the red, white, and blue that we used to be so proud of–the colors of our flag for which our soldiers risk their lives every single day. It’s disgusting and embarrassing. Check out the pictures below. In every single contemporary Olympic Games, America’s athletes wore uniforms that had at least one of the red, white, and blue colors that represent our country, if not all of them. Now, it’s just the embarrassing, Obama-esque, un-American gray. Sad. Very sad. The U.S. Olympic Committee is blaming this on Nike, saying Nike picked the color to show off the athletes’ faces. Huh? The USOC calls all the shots and could have insisted on red, white, and blue, but didn’t care. And the gray just makes it look like our athletes are caught in a storm on a dark, cloudy day. Or that they are prison inmates. Why the heck would we allow Nike to decide on gray for Americans? We are so embarrassed to be Americans now that we hide our national colors. Betsy Ross is turning over in her grave.
NOW – Unpatriotic, Stormcloud, Prison Gray . . .
