Michael Phelps may be the greatest Olympian the world has ever known but for CNN host W. Kamau Bell, he is just a “tall, successful, rich white guy” who clearly didn’t “need the honor” of being chosen by his athlete peers as America’s flag-bearer. Instead, Bell exclaims, Ibtihaj Muhammad, a woman, an African-American and a Muslim to boot, should have been chosen because “right now America has enough tall, successful, rich white guys hogging the spotlight trying to make America great. White men have no rights and shouldn’t be allowed to compete at all. It’s time to put the white race where it belongs, in the rubbish bin of history.”
After Phelps was chosen by his fellow Olympians, the U.S. Olympic Team tweeted proudly….
But, as BizPacreview.com reports, liberals wanted U.S. swimmer Michael Phelps to give up the honor of carrying the American flag and leading his country’s athletes at the opening ceremony for the Rio Olympic games Friday night.
He’s the wrong color and the wrong sex.
W. Kamau Bell, host of CNN’s “United Shades of America,” described the swimming sensation as a “tall, successful, rich white guy” who clearly didn’t “need the honor.”
“With 22 Olympic medals, you are already the most decorated athlete in Olympic history,” he said.
But American fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad is a different story…
|A hard working winner vs Hildebeast paradigm meme…if he was gay or a tranny, they’d be falling all over themselves lauding him. But, because he’s white, it’s destroy and defame time. I’m ashamed of the SJW wanker crowd.|
…a woman, an African-American and a Muslim to boot.
“Muhammad carrying the flag would be much bigger than your one moment,” Bell writes. “It would be a symbol for our country in this moment when we are mostly known for one of the most contentious, controversial, scandal-ridden, hateful, xenophobic, jingoistic, and just generally unlikable presidential elections in recent memory. This is at a time when we could use some more symbols of unity and togetherness.”
Bell referred to Muhammad as “a one-stop inclusion shop due to her race, sex and religion. Phelps, on the other hand was something else entirely.
“No offense, but right now America has enough tall, successful, rich white guys hogging the spotlight trying to make America great,” he said, in an obvious reference to Donald Trump.
“No offense”… but sadly it appears the supposedly apolitical Olympic Games has been hijacked by the liberal agenda – under the guise of fairness, so you can’t argue with that, right? – to further the divide in today’s identity politics.
