It has been a mystery to me why anyone who dislikes a country – as some do – would want to represent them as an athlete and bring home a prize. Why not represent a country where you would be proud to represent it. Those who do this protesting only tells me they are mixed up in the noggin. I don’t want anyone representing us if they hate the country.
My opinion is – if they conduct themselves in this manner – kick them off the team. Even though they won – why would we want a loser representing us? Someone could easily take their place. A lot of money is spent on training these losers.
Herschel Walker Has Blunt Message For Olympic Athletes Protesting
Former NFL running back turned potential United States Senate candidate Herschel Walker has shared his opinion on Olympic athletes protesting.
Earlier this year, an athlete at the United States track and field Olympic trials protested during the national anthem in Eugene, Oregon.
At the start of the Summer Olympics in Tokyo, multiple women’s soccer teams took a knee before the start of the match.
While the Summer Olympics have banned certain protests, many athletes are still finding ways to show where they stand. Walker isn’t a fan of it.
“This is the United States of America, and if people don’t like the rules here — and there’s no doubt we can make some things better — but if people don’t like the rules here, why are you here?” Walker told Fox News.
A lot of locals/foreigners would love to take their place.
