As liberals parade about calling the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team “America’s team,” it has been learned that the team forced out one of its only Christian members simply because she is not a far left-winger. How very “inclusive” of them.
Liberals are excited that “America’s ” soccer team won the Women’s World Cup, but the fact is, the USWNT does not really represent America as a whole. It only represents leftist Americans.
As the players cavort on videos with foul-mouthed rants as they “celebrate” their World Cup win, as they politicize every moment of their victory to push a left-wing agenda including gay “rights,” so-called “equal pay,” and anti-American displays during the “Star Spangled Banner,” the USWNT has proven to be representative only of some Americans.
All this is even as they claim that it is Donald Trump who is the one excluding people. Perhaps it is no surprise that this year’s World Cup finals lost almost half its American viewership over the last Women’s World Cup.
And now we see that they dumped a player because she is Christian.
Top U.S. player Jaelene Hinkle, 26, was cut from the team this year despite her reputation as a great soccer player.
For instance, Fox News reported that Hinkle “helped her team win the NWSL championship and previously helped it win a title in 2016 when it was known as the Western New York Flash.”
Many others have similar high praise for Hinkle’s sports ability.
Despite all that, the team cut the player, and it is hard to say that it was for any reason other than her Christian religion.
Indeed, Hinkle has been very open and proud of her Christian beliefs. For instance, she refused to support the team’s constant gay pride activities. In 2017 she would not wear the team’s gay pride jersey. Also, back in 2015, Hinkle was open and honest about her opposition to gay marriage.
So, the next time someone claims that the U.S. Women’s National Team is “inclusive” and represents America, ask them about Jaelene Hinkle who was fired because she didn’t fit in with Megan Rapinoe’s exclusionary beliefs.
