    They risked everything for it, not for some idea or abstraction but for the piece of fabric itself. The American flags place in our culture is beginning to look less unassailable. The symbol itself is under attack, as weve seen with Nike dumping a shoe design featuring an early American flag, Megan Rapinoe defending her national-anthem protests (she says she will never sing the song again), and protesters storming an ICE facility in Aurora, Colo., and replacing the U.S. flag with a Mexican flag. U.S. soccer had a pretty good statement a while back setting out, in response to Rapinoe,...

    USA Soccer Star and far-left kneeling protestor Megan Rapinoe announced to MSNBC that her girlfriend, basketball player Sue Bird, told her that she would most likely soon be asked to run for President of the United States. The comment was made while Rapinoe was talking to far-left conspiracy theorist and MSNBC host Rachel Maddow. Maddow of course, praised the soccer player for opposing the President and disrespecting America. I feel like you have become more and more comfortable and more and more articulate in terms of using the platform that youve got to say what you think ought to be...

    New York City, youre the motherf***ing best! she said, classy as ever, as the crowd cheered for her and her vulgarity. Of course, Rapinoe couldnt care less that kids were in the crowd. Well, we certainly want to apologize for the language at the end there, MSNBC anchor Craig Melvin said to the audience. Following their victory over the Netherlands, she shared a photo on Twitter of her and two other gay teammates with a caption. We already discussed this, she said in the tweet. Science is science. Gays rule, she said, as if heterosexuals could not win. It was...

    Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D) said Saturday that if he is elected president, he will ask soccer player Megan Rapinoe to be his secretary of state. He said at the progressive Netroots Nation conference that one of his first acts as president would be to get a secretary of State who embraces world unity and "love rather than hate" as he rebuked President Trump's foreign policy. "My first act will be to ask Megan Rapinoe to be my secretary of State," he said. "I haven't asked her yet, so this could be a surprise to her." "I actually believe this...

    Shes chic, fiery, and really darn good at soccer. Is it any wonder that everybody loves Megan Rapinoe? The soccer star and U.S. womens national team captain has become a celebrity after guiding her team to yet another Womens World Cup win on Sunday. Amid endless fanfare, she has received a glowing feature in the Washington Post, modeled for Sports Illustrated, and become a viral sensation. One article in the Week even endorsed her for president. Theres just one problem: Shes actually kind of an awful person. Rapinoe has soccer skills for sure, but her entitled, flippant, and unpatriotic attitude...

    Americans should be rallying together because of her success with the team, instead she is helping to divide us even further. She uses profanity to express her hatred towards the country and her character really shows when she speaks about President Trump. Rapinoe turned down an invite from the administration before it even happened. Rapinoe believes that her and her teammates should receive the same pay as the mens team. She does not mention anything about the fact that the mens team brings in a lot more revenue for the organization than her team does. Rapinoe is much like AOC,...

    U.S. Women's Soccer superstar Megan Rapinoe doubled down in her opposition to visit the Trump White House on Tuesday but expressed that she was open to accept invitations from anyone who "believes the same things we believe in" like Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY. Rapinoe's feud with the president began last month when she declared she was "not going to the f---ing White House, which prompted a response from Trump on Twitter. "I am a big fan of the American Team, and Womens Soccer, but Megan should WIN first before she TALKS! Finish the job!" Trump...

    Megan Rapinoe showed no sign of stemming her outspoken ways after scoring the goals that saw USA march one step closer towards the World Cup final. Go gays! she said after the 2-1 quarter-final victory over France in Paris and when asked to comment on whether it being Pride month made her contribution more personally significant. You cant win a championship without gays on your team - its never been done before, ever. Thats science, right there! Im motivated by people who like me, who are fighting for the same things. I take more energy from that than from trying...

    The U.S. women's national soccer team is back on home soil following its victorious World Cup run in France. The last time the team was in this position, in 2015, it couldn't wait to celebrate with President Obama. But, it's a different story this year. Megan Rapinoe, one of the most vocal and recognizable players on the team, has already told the press she's "not f***ing going" to Trump's White House. As one of the openly gay players on the team, she doesn't believe Trump represents LGBT citizens. It's one of the reasons she's also refused to recite the national...

    Soccer champion Megan Rapinoes brother, Brian, has a history of involvement with white supremacist prison gang activity, ESPN reported on Sunday. Brian joined a white supremacist gang while he was in prison for car theft and other crimes. His hands, sides, and legs were tattooed with Nazi symbols, including a swastika and lightning bolts. Brian explained them as an effort to become an active participant in prison culture. Rapinoe said that she thought [the tattoos] were horrible. But, she added, I could rationalize them: I understood that when he first got in there, he was searching for identity, trying to...

What the #USWNT did was extraordinary, and they deserve to be compensated fairly, Schumer, D-N.Y., tweeted on Monday. All women need to be compensated fairly. Period. And we ought to pay attention to this not just once every four years during the World Cup, but year-in and year-out. Earlier, Monday, during remarks on the Senate floor, Schumer invited the...

    Megan Rapinoe, who has scored all four U.S. goals in the 2019 Womens World Cup knockout rounds, is not in the USWNTs starting lineup for Tuesdays semifinal against England. U.S. Soccer released the lineup 75 minutes prior to the 3 p.m. ET kickoff, with Christen Press starting in Rapinoes place on the left wing: It is unclear why Rapinoe is not in the 11, or if she is available off the bench. Technically, she is because all roster members not in the 11 are. However, during pregame warmups, the U.S. co-captain was standing off to the side as her...

The Stade du Lyon is thronging with thousands of supporters ahead of the 8pm kick-off, as another 10million England fans prepare to watch the action back home on BBC1. Much like...
