Tantrum meet gun, meet foot, meet future career

| No Comments

Talk about shooting yourself in the foot for future work.

I think that it is a given that the current media infatuation with WOKE is just that and like every other fad, this too shall pass.  It will soon be relegated to the dustbin of history.  "What the @#$ were they smoking?" will be the comment from the future. My thought is just like people now are being censured for tweets they made a few years ago, this petulant little act is going to bite Ms. Berry on her ass.  From Legal Insurrection:

Olympic Hammer Thrower Gwen Berry Turns Away From American Flag, “P*ssed” National Anthem Played
Gwen Berry, a hammer thrower who qualified for the U.S. Olympic team during the trials, apparently is trying out for the wrong country’s Olympic team. During the trials, she turned away from the American flag and said she was “pissed” that the “Star Spangled Banner” was played while she stood on the podium for a bronze trial medal.

Berry says it felt like a “set up” to be forced to endure the horrific torture of seeing the flag and of hearing the national anthem . . . . of the country whose Olympic team she wants to join. Surreal.

Bronze, not Silver and not Gold.  She was never going to get the A-list endorsements to begin with.  And now, she will be known as: "the woman who did what?" whenever her name comes up for consideration. I think that it is safe to say that her career is not over, it never started.  She killed it. Her responsibility.  She owns it.

The sell-by date on WOKE is rapidly approaching and I am safe in saying that this is true for all people, all races, all cultures. WOKE is childish posturing - nothing less, nothing more. Look at me.  I am special.
