Godscrack: Conservatives do have a certain hatred toward anyone named 'Gabby'.


I actually read the name in the headline as "Gabby Giffords" and was confused for a moment.

Watched Bill O' on Fox the night Mitt Romneys polling numbers proved its statistical (at this point) impossible to win. Bill O' looked dejected and FoxNews cut the show early. They filled it with interviews 10 years old of Nation of Islam members and Dennis Rodmen.

Actual quote from a Republican "Since their not coming to vote we need to scare them out of the nursing homes to vote."

They can yell " the sheriffs a ne'er " all they want cuss the sheriffs 'a stayin

Fox News rule:

If you are going to slam a Black gold medal winning girl for not being a True American® do it with a Black derping analyst because it is really a message to Blacks in general who really aren't real Americans and don't know how to behave. See. even a Black says so.

USA. USA. USA.

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

I admit I was thrown for a moment when watching the men's USA vs. Russia volleyball game. The Russian uniforms were red, white, and blue, and the American team was wearing commie-red.

propasaurus: pisceandreamer: 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 black girls.

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.


Surprised Fox News didn't go into meltdown when Missy won as she is a dual citizen. She has both US and Canadian citizenships as she was born in California to Canadian parents.

Given the last 3 years, I'm not going to be surprised if FOX news questions if ANY Black person was a 'real' American.

In a circumspect way, of course.

§176. Respect for flag
(d) The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. It should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free. Bunting of blue, white, and red, always arranged with the blue above, the white in the middle, and the red below, should be used for covering a speaker's desk, draping the front of the platform, and for decoration in general.


This might be appropriate here.

At this level, none of them are representing their countries as much as they are their shoe/equipment manufacturers. You really think Nike cares about stars and stripes? It's alllll about the swooshtika.

Let's see, that took about... 5 seconds worth of searching?

You will find no shortage of red, white, and blue gymnastic uniforms, including some worn by Gabby Douglas.

Then there's the one she wore during team competition.

There's a legitimate question as to why our athletes aren't wearing more American colors, as they always have in the past. That's what the story is about by the way, not specifically Douglas. I can see that, as usual, this has to be twisted in peoples minds until the big mean people are saying something nasty because that makes you feel better about yourselves.

WTF Indeed: Maybe because wearing the flag is both tacky and an affront to the flag itself.


Strange how this only ever seems to be applied to wearing American flag colors. You never see people walking around telling any other country that it's tacky and an affront to their country... And if you did people like you would scream about it.

Aquapope:
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.


To be fair, the geography of of the USA *is* truly excellent. And after we swept out the previous residents, it was all ours. Manifest Destiny was just a pretty way of justifying snagging all that prime real estate.

And as for the Fox broadcast, I got to that part about how people aren't chanting USA USA USA, and had to turn it off. As if the majority of spectators at ANY of these events is American....What utterly ignorant f*cks at Fox.

/I admit, I screeched USA USA USA at the World Cup in 2002...but that's soccer, fans are supposed to be obnoxious.
 
2012-08-05 06:34:55 PM
To be a truly patriotic American® you have to have Red, White, or Blue skin (and by Red, I don't mean Native American, that's just a slightly more acceptable version of brown). So clearly, Gabby cannot be patriotic.
 
2012-08-05 06:35:31 PM
"...Americans can't show our exceptionalism..."

60 medals so far (28, 14, 18) doesn't show our exceptionalism? My god, man, did you see how we laid the farking smack down on that uppity upstart Nigerian basketball team? You think they question our exceptionalism? Forget about it! Take that, Nigeria!!

Lionel Mandrake: 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?


Nothing says Patriotism like eating some Chick-Fil-A and then wiping your greasy fingers on the American flag.

randomjsa: There's a legitimate question as to why our athletes aren't wearing more American colors


"Legitimate"? For certain definitions of "legitimate"... for instance, those words, in that order, and ending with a question mark are an interrogative, so it's legitimately a question. It's a stupid question, but I suppose "legitimate" could be used to define it.

No there isn't. Who gives a shiat what they wear, as long as they kick ass, that's all I really care about.

This is just another version of "Flagpin-gate" from when Obama was running for President.

I've always said, patriotism to your average conservative is nothing more than a pissing contest to see who can shout USA...USA the loudest while waving the biggest flag. These two militant nationalist twits just proved my point.

Nope, you are wrong, randomjsa is correct.

In all fairness to David Webb and Fox News, they weren't impugning, disparaging, questioning and pissing on Ms. Douglas' patriotism alone. No, they were impugning, disparaging, questioning and pissing on the patriotism of all 2012 US Olympic athletes.
 
2012-08-05 07:03:53 PM

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?


Actually, all 5 of the American ladies gymnastics team wore identical red leotards the night they won the Olympic Team Finals. These were a shiny red with white/silver beading and a shoulder patch of a circle of stars surrounding the letters USA. Simply designed, but it's better than winding up with a design that's too similar to what any of the other MANY countries who have the same color combination for their flags too. For the medal ceremony, they wore the same gray and black athletic gear all other American teams wore in other sports/disciplines.

Gabby Douglas chose to wear a dark pink leotard during the Individual All-Around event, a competition that judges the athlete's individual skill sets. It is preferred for the gymnasts to wear leotards that differentiate them from the other competing gymnasts and to reduce nationalistic jingoism when the objective is to seriously evaluate the gymnast's skills as an individual and not as an extension of their nationality. This event isn't about patriotism but about the athlete...

I do have to say though that Douglas managed to wear the only leotard that actually looked good against that hideous color scheme for the gymnastics arena. For that alone she deserved a medal!

I don't quite understand the "real" vs "representation" distinction. Say for example, if you drip BBQ sauce on this American flag placemat

rlv.zcache.com

Is it "real" or just a representation. I'm sure you could attach it to a flagpole and salute it.
