According to her former teammate, extreme liberal and USA soccer player Megan Rapinoe would “almost bully” her teammates into kneeling for the National Anthem.
The comments came from soccer star Hope Solo who had some harsh words for her former teammate.
The Daily Caller reports: “Solo and Rapinoe spent several years together on the USWNT, and the former goalie isn’t overly impressed with the national anthem protests that have swept through the team. In fact, Solo, who was removed from the team in 2016 before kneeling consumed sports, thinks Rapinoe pushed players to do it.”
“I think the kneeling thing can be very divisive. I’ve seen Megan Rapinoe almost bully players into kneeling because she really wants to stand up for something in her particular way,” Solo said on Goal’s “All of Us: The U.S. Women’s Soccer Show” while blasting Rapinoe.
She added, “I think the rhetoric surrounding this team has been both divisive and inclusive. I guess it’s kind of where we are in politics in this day and age.”
The Daily Caller adds commentary:
I’m not surprised at all by Solo’s comments. In fact, I kind of always assumed this kind of attitude was unfolding behind the scenes.
Rapinoe has more or less hijacked the women’s national soccer team and become the front and center piece.
She’s more recognizable than anyone else on the team, and it’s in large part because she is the face of all the protests.
Rapinoe always makes everything about her as she claims to be the victim of sexism and homophobia. Back in March at the White House, Rapinoe whined about how oppressed she is.
“I’ve been disrespected and dismissed because I am a woman,” she complained. “I’ve been told that I don’t deserve any more than less because I am a woman. Despite all the wins, I’m still paid less than men who do the same job that I do.”
