These Fox News Channel idiots for questioning Gabby Douglas’ patriotism.
On last week’s “America Live,” guest-host Alisyn Camerota discussed how “some folks” noticed that the “famous flag-styled outfits” of Olympics past were replaced by “yellow shirts, grey track suits and pink leotards” at the London games. Camerota and her guest, Sirius/XM radio host David Webb, took particular focus on Douglas’ outfit. [...]
“What’s wrong with showing some pride?” He likened the uniform choice to a “kind of soft anti-American feeling that Americans can’t show their exceptionalism.” Camerota pointed out how other nations, like China, wore nationalistic colors.
“We’re a very nationalistic nation,” Webb said of America. “But we’ve also lost over time that jingoistic feeling.”
Whah? What does red, white and blue have to do with “exceptionalism?” The flag has nothing to do with feeling like America is the greatest nation ever fuck yeah. Oh, and newsflash, “jingoism” isn’t a good thing.
Did these doofs watch any swimming events in which Phelps and Lochte were wearing black swim trunks?
