Surge Summary: A transgender Olympic athlete wants to celebrate medaling in the competition by burning an American flag. Must the United States tolerate such hateful anti-Americanism on the athletic team representing it on the global stage?

The Unhinged Left

It’s not unusual in my conversations today that someone expresses their frustration with the growing anti-Americanism in our culture.  Sadly, it’s a huge problem on the left.

[Monday], I told you about a singer who said the Stars and Stripes is no longer a symbol of freedom.  She says we need a new flag.  Well, here’s another example that has most Americans fuming.

Chelsea Wolfe, a transgender member of the U.S. Olympic team, wrote last year that he wants to win a medal so he can burn the U.S. flag on the Olympic podium.

His hatred of our country was prompted by the commonsense policies of the Trump/Pence Administration meant to keep biological boys out of girls’ bathrooms and locker rooms, and to ensure that girls do not lose out on college scholarships because they are forced to compete against biological boys in athletics.

The U.S. Olympic Committee should kick him off the team now!

Of course, Wolfe quickly deleted his offensive comment and tried to clarify his remarks. But the clarification didn’t help.  He claimed that he was “fighting fascism,” and trying to show the world that America is “not all of the bad things that we’re known for.”

So, in his disturbed mind America is generally bad and you’re a fascist for wanting to keep men out of women’s bathrooms and boys out of girls’ sports.

If an athlete made racist comments in the past, they would be and should be kicked off our Olympic team.  Expressing hate for America should not be acceptable for members of the U.S. Olympic team either.  Remove him now!

I miss Donald Trump.  If he were president today, he would demand action from the U.S. Olympic Committee.  I hope more elected officials will speak up.  This war against reality, normalcy and our country is the most serious battle we’re facing as a nation today.
