I previously wrote about the hyperventilating lies that the right-wing media promoted about the US Women’s National Soccer Team.
Today on Fox News, Dana Perino spoke about the false story and instead of categorically denying these lies and calling the story a fake news story, she said that she believed Carli Lloyd’s response.
“It makes sense to me.” she said. Then he asked Travis Clay for his opinion.
Clay is a sportscaster for Outkick.com, and he’s also a notorious COVID denier. It’s Covid’s lies that gained him a lot of traction in 2020 as Tim Miller describes in his profile of Clay.
Clay Travis decided that in the absence of sports, he could find a niche by offering pseudoscientific tirades about how the media was hyping the coronavirus. He told listeners that the disease would only kill “a few hundred people” and that he does not “think it will affect almost any of us.”
Clay claimed that the false outrage that followed was credible.
“I think it is emblematic of where we are with sports now, where a large percentage of American sports fans totally believe that it is credible that the United States women’s soccer team turns its back on a WWII veteran. 98-year-old while playing the national anthem. Don’t even think twice, “Clay said.
Look, this is not fake news because the MAGA cultists will believe any lie that is told about the left or the sports teams of the United States.
The truth, committing to a lie because it FEELS true, is back.
Clay continued: “I, like you, Dana, saw this video, I think it’s a bit confusing. They weren’t all facing in the same direction and I think, unfortunately, it’s a sign of where we are as a country that many of us just assume. that that level of disrespect is occurring from our national teams during the anthem. “
When you take over, Clay, you make an idiot of you and me.
Our USWNT is not a military brigade, idgit.
Co-host Bill Hemmer commented on how forceful the USWNT was in rebuking these false accusations. The fact that our world-class athletes had to be blunt in their denials is the problem right there, as they were attacked for a lie by a MAGA bastard.
Hemmer then foreshadowed what will happen in Tokyo. It seems to be preparing the nuts for a greater revolt against our athletes, whether it is justified or not.
“But I tell you in Tokyo that this will be a story and some days it will be a bigger story than the games themselves.”
Fuck you, Bill.
