Nobody’s Perfect: Gabby Douglas
This week, I thought I’d be good and not pick on the continuing saga of Hilarious Hillary’s mental state, and instead turn to some other news that has gotten some attention. Gabby Douglas, the American gold metal gymnasts, choose to NOT statute the American flag on the ceremony podium at the Olympics in Rio.
Clearly, it was a statement against her country.
Many Americans saw her do this, and as expected, a lot of nasty comments were made on Social Media, which really “Hurt her.” she said.
Ahhhhhh….gee. What Gabby? Did you think you were making some great political “black lives matter” statement?
That’s what happens when you start hanging out with Barack and Michelle. They got by with doing it…so what? Did you think you’d be admired? Try to muddle out of this one.
Gabby wasn’t expecting such a backlash. And she wasn’t the star this year— instead the other girls..the ones who looked HAPPY to be there took the glory.
Simone Biles, covered her heart, and she clearly dominated Gabby.
Simone Manuel, the first black woman to win a gold in swimming, covered her heart, AND sang the National Anthem with sheer joy. She showed grace, and maturity, and made us all proud.
BOTH women are black. Obviously a bit wiser than you.
You choose the wrong role models Gabby. And it’s too bad…because as politicians know, people’s memories are short…but that film clip and picture is right up there in Olympic history….and people like me, are not going to remember your great talent, but the fact, that you choose to point a middle finger at your own country,…what a shame.
Being a champion is more than just having the talent to win gold.
It’s also having the courage to show honor to a country who looks up to you.
A picture is worth a thousand words. It’s so, so true.
