Five players on the United States women’s soccer team disrespected America today by refusing to face the American flag as 98-year-old veteran, ‘Harmonica Pete’ DuPré, played the National Anthem on his harmonica in Miyazaki, Japan:
It was honestly quite the moving ceremony, which was ruined by these five players. And they did their ‘protest’ on the day we celebrate July 4th, while on an international stage.
Now some sites are reporting that the women turned away from ‘Harmonica Pete’, and by doing so disrespected him.
But that’s wrong.
As you can clearly see from this secondary video, both the American and Mexican flags are next to the jumbotron:
The U.S. women's national soccer team was given a loud send-off after a 4-0 exhibition win over Mexico. Next stop: the Olympics in Tokyo. 👏

Which means, the women who turn away from ‘Harmonica Pete’ are the ones facing the flag, with their hands over their hearts. They are the patriotic ladies.
Below is a photo of all the players and you can clearly see some of them refuse to face the flag and, as a dead giveaway, their hands are behind their backs:
Only six players are facing the flag, while five are being unpatriotic, disrespectful hags – to put it nicely.
As you can imagine, this did not go over well with patriotic Americans:
Pull the entire team from the Olympics https://t.co/jHXTmZpvaO

I’ll be rooting for just about every single women’s soccer team around the world EXCEPT the U.S. women’s team.
If you disrespect our country, don’t expect support from its citizens.

This is just plain disrespectful. The more American athletes continue to pull stunts like this, the more Americans will turn their backs on them in return. https://t.co/ZLnYyZPEUQ

I’m already done with the whole team. They’ve ruined it for me. I’d rather pull for an entire team of so-called ‘transgender women’ wearing rainbow colored uniforms than to pull for these America-hating ingrates.
