The United States women’s national soccer team will no longer protest during the national anthem.
I’m not really sure what the USWNT wants here. Should we be applauding them for doing what is expected of them?
Standing for the anthem doesn’t make you some kind of hero. It’s the bare minimum that’s expected, especially when you’re wearing a uniform representing America.
It’s bad when NFL players kneel for the anthem, but it’s nothing compared to when people representing the USA do it.
If members of the USWNT feel so much shame about America, then don’t play for the national team. It’s that simple. Just quit!
