Dear Kamau –
For the record, I’m absolutely elated that Michael Phelps chose to give you the finger and lead the American Olympic team into Maracana Stadium in Rio the other night, despite the fact that you sniveled and sniggered that the legendary swimmer was sure to follow your admonition to give up the honor of carrying the flag to someone who had not earned it.
Fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad is a better choice to carry the flag, you whined in an open letter to Phelps.
She is a Muslim, you wailed.
Phelps doesn’t need the honor, you lamented.
And if he does this, he’ll be forgiven for that little pot indiscretion, you squealed.
If Phelps gave up the honor he earned fairly and justly by being selected by his peers to bear the flag, he would earn forgiveness for our nation for this shit show of an election, you claimed, as if it was Phelps’ responsibility to beg forgiveness in front of the world for the assclownery of this election year – assclownery for which you and your pals in the media are partially responsible.
Muhammad is a veritable cornucopia of social justice shitbaggery that you Marxists love so much! She’s female. She’s African-American. She’s a hijab wearing Muslim.
You know what she doesn’t have? She doesn’t have 22 Olympic medals.
She’s not the most decorated Olympian in history. As a matter of fact, her Olympic journey is just starting, while Phelps qualified for his first Olympic Games when he was just 15 years old.
Phelps is Olympic and American history. And while I’m sure Muhammad will forge her own glory, she’s not there yet.
In other words, Phelps earned this honor. He earned it with years of hard work.
And you want to take it away from him, because he doesn’t NEED it? Because he’s rich, white, and famous?
Wow, you’re a Marxist jerk! From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs, eh?
Who appointed you the arbiter of who needs what, and when those needs are met?
Phelps earned a record number of Olympic medals for his country over his swimming career, and was fairly selected by his peers to carry the flag, and yet, he should give up that honor because it’s somehow his responsibility to let someone who hasn’t earned it have it anyway, because she’s black… or Muslim… or female?
Whatever happened to merit? Whatever happened to fairness and justice? Whatever happened to earning the honor of representing and leading your country?
Are all those things to be overshadowed by plumbing, skin color, and religion?
Oh, I forgot. Those things aren’t important to you and your fellow Social Justice Howler Monkeys – ye of the big mouth and tiny genitalia. You don’t care about skill. You don’t give a rat’s ass about justice. You care about promoting people based on everything not related to actual abilities, to compensate for your own tiny sack.
And your appalling screed should be a slap in the face to every woman and minority who works their ass off to achieve great heights. You cheapen and demean their accomplishments by demanding that someone hand over something they earned to someone who hasn’t earned it merely because they happen to wear a hijab, and who by the way, claims she feels “unsafe” in the country of her birth, which I’m sure gives you, Kamau, another excuse to demand that she be given the unearned. Because VICTIM!!!
Maybe you feel Phelps should wear some cement shoes while he competes, because “America has enough tall, successful, rich white guys hogging the spotlight trying to make America great… again.” And if he doesn’t, he must be a Trump supporting racist, is that it, you ass munching jizz gobbler?
The Olympics are about physical prowess. They’re about skill. They’re about competition and athletic performance. They’re not about participation trophies. So stop trying to divide this country and relegate people to second class citizens merely because they are white, or male, because you feel they have enough “privilege.” Your FEELZ don’t matter. Phelps’ teammates voted for him to carry the flag, and however close that vote was, it’s their choice and his honor to accept, without you trying to undermine his achievements with implications of racism if he doesn’t abide by your oh-so-gentle “suggestion.”
When Muhammad wins medals and earns the majority of the votes of her fellow Olympians and the honor of carrying the flag in the next Olympic games, we will cheer her on just like we would any other American.
Until then, you can take your social justice agenda and shove it up your unAmerican ass!
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) announced today that the Department of Defense will begin allowing Muslim and Sikh students who wear an Islamic head scarf (hijab) or a turban to participate in the Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC).
In October, the Washington-based Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization wrote to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta after a 14-year-old Muslim student at Ravenwood High School in Brentwood, Tenn., was forced to transfer out of a JROTC class when her commanding officers told her she could not wear hijab while marching in the September homecoming parade.
CAIR requested constitutionally-protected religious accommodations for the girl and for future Muslim JROTC participants.
You know why we wear uniforms? To make us a part of a unit – a cohesive organization where no one receives special treatment and everyone operates as part of an entity.
All as one.
A unit is supposed to be a single, indivisible entity – not a place where everyone’s special “needs” are accommodated.
I don’t care whom you worship or how. You are part of an organization in which you and your buddies operate as a team, as parts of a cohesive whole. The uniform is part of that cohesion. It’s part of that strength.
Obviously CAIR doesn’t.
So what’s next? Burqas in the battlefield?
Can’t wait for that one.
