Biden Bestows Medal of Freedom on Megan Rapinoe, Who Declared Girls' Sports 'Not That Important'

So, who’s worse? An Olympic gold medalist and two-time Women’s World Cup champion with a history of kneeling during the national anthem and — in reference to biological males kicking the hell out females in women’s sports — believes a young girl’s sports career “just isn’t that important,” or a president of the United States who awards the Presidential Medal of Freedom to such a person?


In this pathetic case, I’m going with Joe Biden over Megan Rapinoe for in effect rewarding the controversial soccer player’s anti-American behavior. Either way, both left-wingers continue their respective efforts to destroy America as we know it.

Before we continue with the above, the Presidential Medal of Freedom is the highest civilian honor awarded in the United States, usually given to those who have made “exemplary contributions to the prosperity, values, or security of the United States, world peace, or other significant societal, public or private endeavors.”

As announced by the White House Friday, Rapinoe is among 17 people tapped by Biden (his left-wing handlers, that is) to receive the prestigious honor.

These seventeen Americans demonstrate the power of possibilities and embody the soul of the nation – hard work, perseverance, and faith.

As noted by OutKick, the announcement comes just days after Rapinoe declared that the overturn of Roe v. Wade was a “violent onslaught on women’s bodies.” (No word from Rapinoe on the “violent onslaught” against the bodies of helpless unborn children.)

Incidentally, isn’t it amazing that the leftists were instantaneously able to define a woman when the Roe overturn was announced — with nary a biologist among them?


Anyway, as is the case with all liberals, the depth of Rapinoe’s hypocrisy knows no bounds. Here we have a super-staunch advocate of women’s rights, including on-demand abortion until birth, who doesn’t believe those rights extend to women’s sports — yet she herself is presumably paid substantial money to play women’s sports against other women. Hypocritical as hell? You betcha.

Rapinoe and commentary, as transcribed from OutKick:

“I would encourage everyone out there who is afraid someone’s going to have an unfair advantage over their kid,” by ‘someone’ she means a transgender athlete, “to really take a step back and think what we’re actually talking about. We’re talking about people’s lives. I’m sorry. Your kid’s high school volleyball team just isn’t that important.”

Why not? Besides, if a young girl’s sports efforts “just aren’t that important,” what incentive does an “unimportant” young female athlete have to compete and develop and perhaps one day become a collegiate athlete or even a pro? You know, like hypocritical-as-hell Megan Rapinoe?

As to the Presidential Medal of Freedom, here’s how the White House announcement describes Rapinoe:


Megan Rapinoe is an Olympic gold medalist and two-time Women’s World Cup champion. She also captains OL Reign in the National Women’s Soccer League. She is a prominent advocate for gender pay equality, racial justice, and LGBTQI+ rights.

Question: Who on the far-left isn’t an advocate for gender pay equality, racial justice, and LGBTQI+ rights? Ah, but it’s that “prominent part.” In other words, Megan Rapinoe is an influencer who, presumed by the Biden White House, it appears, does a damn fine job of championing “all of the above.”

OutKick noted the same, albeit in stronger words:

In reality, Rapinoe is receiving this award because she publicly declares her allegiance to the correct set of progressive principles. That often requires hypocrisy or dismissive, patronizing statements towards people concerned with fairness and biological advantages.

She excels at both, and so receives one of the country’s highest honors.

It’s an embarrassment to the Medal of Freedom that someone so shamelessly committed to inaccurate activism will join recipients who are actual American heroes.

Amen. All of the above.

As announced by the White House, other recipients include U.S. Olympics gymnast Simone Biles, former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, the late Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple, late-Republican Sen. John McCain, and late-president of the powerful AFL-CEO labor union, Richard Trumka.


No word on why George Floyd was not among the “winners” [supreme sarcasm].
