CNN hack, Kamau Bell, took issue with Michael Phelps being voted by his teammates as the flag bearer for the US in the opening ceremonies of the 2016 Olympics. Fortunately, his teammates and Phelps wouldn’t budge on the issue… the ensuing howling from the left could be heard across the globe. It was mind blowing.
What was the big deal? Well, you see they claim Phelps is a rich, white guy and even though he is the most decorated athlete in American history, with 22 gold medals now, he should step aside and let the runner up take his place. Who was that you ask? Wait for it… a black, Muslim woman who is a renowned fencer, anti-Semite, racist, America hater and an all around asshat, that’s who. Her name is Ibtihaj Muhammad.
From the US Chronicle:
Prior to the beginning of the 2016 Summer Olympics, “sociopolitical comedian” and pod-caster, Kamau Bell, published an open letter to 22 time Olympic medal winner, Michael Phelps.
The open letter was published at CNN.
The issue that Bell had, was that Phelps was asked to fulfill the honor of being the flag bearer for the United States, during the opening ceremonies, in Rio De Janeiro.
Bell called Phelps a ‘golden boy’ and compared him bearing the American flag to Michael Jordan getting a free pair of Nike sneakers. Really? More like stripping Jordan of the MVP, but that doesn’t even come close. 22 gold medals is a whole other class by itself.
Bell was far from done:
“To put it another way, in the Make-Your-Own-Ice-Cream-Sundae-Bar of life, your sundae is lousy with hot fudge, butterscotch, strawberry sauce, whipped cream, nuts, sprinkles, extra scoops of ice cream, and so many Maraschino cherries that 5-year-old kids with mouthfuls of Maraschino cherries yell as you pass by, ‘THAT’S TOO MANY CHERRIES!’”
I’m far beyond sick of this social justice, Marxist crap. This has nothing to do with fairness. Phelps is the best out there and has earned his accolades and awards. That hardly matters to Bell who is a racist himself.
I’m sorry, wearing a hijab does not make you special. Winning the gold 22 times, does. Ibtihaj Muhammad is ranked 8th in the world and has no Olympic medals under her belt. She lost to the ninth ranked fencer and will go home without a medal.
Skin color, gender and your choice of religion have nothing to do with the Olympics. Being a world class athlete does. Michael Phelps is legendary and is the perfect Olympian to represent the red, white and blue.
