Only One American Stood Before the Olympic Soccer Game, Every Other Player Knelt

Before the U.S. women’s soccer team’s bronze medal game, every player knelt in solidarity with the radical-left communist Black Lives Matter movement, except for one: Carli Lloyd.

A now viral photo shows all 10 players kneeling to protest the United States of America while Lloyd was the only one standing while she showed support for her country.

“ALL the USWNT players and staff knelt. All except Carli Lloyd,” tweeted Edward Chang on Twitter. “To say Lloyd is a “somebody” on the team is an understatement. Also surprised to see Australia didn’t kneel and are actually standing in solidarity opposite the U.S. Not sure what’s going on here. But interesting.”

The Daily Wire reported:

The women’s team went on to win the game 4-3 against Australia. Lloyd and teammate Megan Rapinoe split the four goals with two apiece.

As noted by Fox News, Lloyd’s performance was record-setting; with 10 Olympic goals, she’s outpaced a record from former U.S. women’s star Abby Wambach.

Notably, the Tokyo Olympics are expected to be Lloyd’s last.

The stunt by the women’s team even caught the attention of former President Donald Trump who specifically targeted woke liberal soccer player Megan Rapinoe who has a history of degrading America.

The former president held nothing back as he torched the team for being “Leftist Maniacs” calling Rapinoe the “woman with the purple hair.”

“If our soccer team, headed by a radical group of Leftist Maniacs, wasn’t woke, they would have won the Gold Medal instead of the Bronze,” Trump said. “Woke means you lose, everything that is woke goes bad, and our soccer team certainly has. There were, however, a few Patriots standing. Unfortunately, they need more than that respecting our Country and National Anthem. They should replace the wokesters with Patriots and start winning again. The woman with the purple hair played terribly and spends too much time thinking about Radical Left politics and not doing her job!”

Many proud patriotic Americans were actually happy to see the woke U.S. soccer team completely fail in the Olympics considering the team has shown time after time that they do not respect or appreciate the United States of America.

“Happiest people on planet Earth today? I’m guessing not the shareholders of Victoria’s Secret, where Megan Rapinoe will now have tons of free time to rep the brand!” conservative author Ann Coulter tweeted after the devastating loss.

Tablet Magazine’s Noam Blum said: “oh the soccer team lost? what a shame.”

“I’ll say this again – I think people who aren’t proud of this country shouldn’t be barred from representing it internationally. They just shouldn’t expect their country to root for them,” he added.

Evangelist Franklin Graham asserted that the loss was most likely due to “political wokeness” rather than playing the game of soccer.

“The US women’s Olympic soccer team lost to Canada for the 1st time in 20 yrs, & I think a lot of people saw it coming. It seems they’ve lost their focus & instead became more focused on political wokeness & using the Olympic stage to promote their agendas,” Graham said.

Radio host Clay Travis had a similar theory.

“The US Women’s Soccer team just lost to Canada and many enjoyed the loss. In 2015 the US women were one of the most popular teams in American history. What happened? Woke sports destroys everything it touches,” Travis said. “The US women had a golden opportunity to wax eloquent about American exceptionalism on a global stage. After all, one primary reason our women dominate soccer is because most women around the world lack basic human rights. Instead, they ripped America.”

“Instead of holding America up to the world as a shining example of equality & opportunity for women around the world, they tore us down. Many American sports fans will never forget this. The result? I’ve never seen a team squander more love & goodwill in my life as a sports fan,” he continued.
