Fox News complained that Gabby Douglas wore a pink leotard instead of a red, white and blue one.

Doesn't pink stand for...socialism?

She won gold medals while representing America. What have you done for our national identity, shiatfark?
 
2012-08-05 04:31:14 PM
Maybe because wearing the flag is both tacky and an affront to the flag itself. Maybe one's patriotism is best shown with how well they do, rather than how loud they yell. Maybe, just maybe, true love of country is more than just saying "I love America."

Or it could be that Michele Obama as infected the athletes with her America-hating virus, and would rather see them doing the crib walk than waving the Stars and Stripes and stealing the energy drinks from smaller nations.
 
2012-08-05 04:37:01 PM
She didn't have a lapel to put a flag pin on.

Truly a monster.

Conservatives do have a certain hatred toward anyone named 'Gabby'.
 
2012-08-05 04:39:55 PM
Well, that was predictable. They've got to pander to their audience, after all, and Fox's audience are really not fans of seeing black people succeed.

Considering how openly Christian Gabby Douglas is, I would have thought that Fox News would be celebrating her accomplishment and praising her for being brave enough to profess her faith.

This is not a statement against vocal Christian athletes; I'm honestly surprised that Fox didn't jump on that and claim victory.

Just another reason to never turn on fox news.

I could only stand one minute of hearing that Teabagging fool go on and on about "our exceptionalism."
 
2012-08-05 04:57:55 PM
I got as far as the biatch telling us that people weren't chanting USA! USA! as much as they used to. Anyone that doesn't think that Fox is nothing but pure unadulterated evil, with the sole purpose of spreading hate, fear, and anger, hasn't been paying attention.

America is exceptional. It is exceptional in creed, not in deed.

It is true that Teabaggers are exceptionally stupid.

Damn Teabaggers.

"So how do we show our patriotism?"

How about by going to the Olympics, representing our country and kicking the living shiat out of the competition like Gabby Douglas has. What the fark have you done? You know, aside from denigrating our country's athletes?
 
2012-08-05 05:25:39 PM
And further along: "What's wrong with showing pride? What we're seeing is this kind of 'soft' anti-American feeling that American's can't show our exceptionalism."

Hey, farktard, she showed American "exceptionalism," she won the farking gold. Exceptionalism has been shown.
 
2012-08-05 05:25:48 PM
Didn't the whole team wear the same pink leotard?? I thought the whole team wore the same outfit. Why are they just picking on Gabby?
 
2012-08-05 05:26:39 PM
Winning an Olympic gold medal is so exceptional that fat pasty f*ck could never even dream of it

Besides what everyone has mentioned here, Gabby just seems like an incredibly sweet, adorable, and poised teenager. Shame on fox, though I know they have no shame.

Methadone Girls: Didn't the whole team wear the same pink leotard?? I thought the whole team wore the same outfit. Why are they just picking on Gabby?

They do - Gabby just has more face time because of the gold, so she's an easy target. GOP: We're not above picking on 16 year old girls.

Not to mention, she stood on the podium while the American flag was raised overhead and The Star Spangled Banner was played. What the fark else does Fox News want her to do to show her patriotism?

Bleach her skin, hair, and get some good ol' American contact lenses, of course.

Guys perhaps you did not do the watching of this video. The guy who was doing the commentary had the American flag! Did you not see this? He is clearly the patriot. Also you are not the racist because you have the token black friend.

She probably pays income taxes which is not at all patriotic.

Isn't it against the U.S. Flag Code to wear the flag as clothing, or use it for decoration? I guess the False News reporters wouldn't know that - or care.

That jackwagon in Godscrack's post needs to be thrown in jail for that crap.

Because they didn't feel the same outrage when 17 year old Missy Franklin or 15 year old Katie Ledecky won wearing black swim suits.
 
2012-08-05 06:17:10 PM
What in the chocolate covered f*ck?

Seriously. She just slam dunked a gold, for the US, and THIS is the crap that folks come up with? Her hair? Her mother? Get over your rose colored glasses selves, and be happy. It's not a f*cking conspiracy. It's not an insult. It's f*cking fashion you knuckle dragging, mouth breathing, fetid swamp ass pretards.
 
2012-08-05 06:17:42 PM
People who feel compelled to show their "patriotism" constantly in some overt way (flag in the back of a pickup) generally (let's say 99.999%) turn out to be traitors, terrorists and cowards.

Just like people who are rabid homophobes turn out to be closet gays.

If you feel that you have to loudly vocalize yourself constantly about something, it generally means that you are the weak one. Not everyone else.
 
2012-08-05 06:18:07 PM
To be fair, the Tea Party dude's/Fox host argument is less about Gabby Douglas and more about "why aren't the uniforms more garish, and the fans and athletes more obnoxious?".

Not that the "isn't it sad that our athletes and fans refuse to wrap themselves in flags and be loud dicks" argument is any less stupid.

Also: this week, at least 2 right wing columnists will use Gabby Douglas open Christianity and winning performance to prove that liberals suck.

Weren't the Brits appropriately charmed by Mitt?

How was she even allowed on the US team? She was clearly born in Kenya.

Yes.

I'll give you one guess.

I notice from the video that Fox News doesn't have the stars and strips in the background like they did in the years after 9/11. Traitors.
 
2012-08-05 06:20:29 PM
4 USC § 8 (j) No part of the flag should ever be used as a costume or athletic uniform

Why does FOX encourage our athletes to be disrespectful?
 
2012-08-05 06:22:43 PM
Douglas didn't drape herself in the flag. Douglas didn't have a flag sticking out of her hair, blowing in the breeze.

F*ck you, Fox. Symbols are for your viewers: the symbol-minded.

Yeah, but swimmers have flags on their swim caps. Unlike the gymnasts who (I might add) are often coached by ChiComs and alleged eastern bloc refugees.

I should probably strip search alleged American Nastia Liukin to determine whether or not she is trying to smuggle seditious contraband back to the US.

And do the athletes pick the uniforms? Or do the individual teams solicit and choose the various designs, choose a Chinese manufacturer to make them, and then tell the athletes which one to put on today?
 
2012-08-05 06:25:23 PM
You ever notice the folks that screech "American Exceptionalism" the most are the ones trying to get rid of all the things that have made America exceptional in the past? Things like plurality of thought, scientific progress, integration of foreign people and cultures, respect for other ideologies... Sure we haven't shown all of those things all of the time, but when we've been exceptional, it was because of them.

America wasn't born exceptional. Neither was Gabby. Both had to work hard to achieve it. But some folks think that the US was born in some kind of national manger with manifest destiny angels all around and we are always exceptional, regardless of how base or arrogant we act.
