That’s fair. The problem I see now is the networks and the “news” outlets also promote their garbage. They give them an outlet for their hate of the USA other than “holding up the fist” at the medal ceremony.As a former two-time Olympian (water polo), I watch & cheer my country but I also recognize & respect all competitors who play for their country. I simply tune out athletes who try to use the Olympic as their soapbox. Instead, I talk about extraordinary athletes who exemplifies the Olympic spirit.
It’s not just the protesting athlete some of us dislike, it’s also the media supporting them. Its hard to tune that out.
