Remember bombastic Megan Rapinoe and the left’s love affair with her, transforming the World’s Cup for Americans into long a progressive leftist commercial against President Donald J. Trump?
Does anyone remember having wall to wall coverage of everything to do with Rapinoe, what she ate, what she thought, who she loves, what her politics were? It was embarrassing to watch the fawning the media was involved with, and the virtue-signaling that people partook in, who have never watched a moment of soccer before.
The over the top emotional coverage.
Remember, she was the greatest athlete of all time, and then she became the greatest Community Organizer, which is what she is doing now.
According to her site, “Athletes for Impact (A4I) is the voice of athlete activism. Founded in 2016, Athletes for Impact is an inclusive and global network of athletes committed to change. A4I connects athletes with leading grassroots organizations to inform and inspire people of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds to take action on important social issues.
Athletes for Impact has proven to be a necessary and viable resource for athletes across all sports to participate in a growing and intersectional movement for social justice. Since its inception, A4I has engaged hundreds of athletes, impacted thousands of people through various campaigns and raised millions of dollars for leading nonprofits.”
Sounds like they are very busy although, running the website through alexia rankings gives some conflicting data about the effectiveness of her campaign.
Rapinoe’s site is ranked at #6,198,920 and has had one visitor to her website in 90 days. There she asks participating athletes to pledge the following at her site athletesforimpact.com:
“As an athlete and leader with the opportunity to influence my local community, I recognize my responsibility to use my voice and resources to make a difference. I understand the critical role athletes can play as catalysts for social change. I am committed to supporting initiatives that bring people together and educate in ways that can actively transform our local neighborhoods and communities. As an Athlete for Impact and champion for change, I agree to the following #A4I principles:
“Advocate for progressive change in my community and country through the use of my influence and platform”
Rapinoe is a well-funded celebrity/Community Organizer who enjoys a tremendously high platform as she is promoted by US politicians and cable movie networks:
From her HBO special ,”Rapinoe’s dominance on and off the pitch has turned her into a voice for many around the world. In 2016, she kneeled during the national anthem to show her solidarity with then-49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and remained outspoken during the 2019 Women’s World Cup in France. After saying she wouldn’t visit the White House and being called out on Twitter by President Donald Trump, Rapinoe responded with an iconic goal celebration in the quarterfinal match against France when she struck a pose with her arms outstretched. The image quickly went viral on social media and the world turned it into a symbol for her patriotism and activism.”‘
Does that make sense? She got her own HBO Special!
Even after the 100 Million dollar PR campaign Rapinoe received, and the build-up she got as a great community organizer/ soccer diva, she has not gotten more than one view on her website at the height of the political season.
Isn’t that how the left works? She doesn’t need any real support from around the country, she only needs the support of the political leftist machine, who will make it appear as if she is wildly popular and sought after.
But she is not.
She was so confident of her popularity she even talked about running for office against President Donald J. Trump, and the media covered it for her. ‘
It started with disrespecting our American Flag.
Which she copied from someone else.
Then we were told that she was adored by the world- she is “global”.
Do you ever feel like nothing the left is selling America is real?
