Michael Phelps may be the greatest Olympian the world has ever known but for CNN host W. Kamau Bell, he is just a "tall, successful, rich white guy" who clearly didn’t "need the honor" of being chosen by his athlete peers as America's flag-bearer. Instead, Bell exclaims, Ibtihaj Muhammad, a woman, an African-American and a Muslim to boot, should have been chosen because "right now America has enough tall, successful, rich white guys hogging the spotlight trying to make America great."
After Phelps was chosen by his fellow Olympians, the U.S. Olympic Team tweeted proudly....
But, as BizPacreview.com reports, liberals wanted U.S. swimmer Michael Phelps to give up the honor of carrying the American flag and leading his country’s athletes at the opening ceremony for the Rio Olympic games Friday night.
He’s the wrong color and the wrong sex.
W. Kamau Bell, host of CNN's "United Shades of America," described the swimming sensation as a “tall, successful, rich white guy” who clearly didn’t "need the honor."But American fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad is a different story...
...a woman, an African-American and a Muslim to boot.
“Muhammad carrying the flag would be much bigger than your one moment,” Bell writes. “It would be a symbol for our country in this moment when we are mostly known for one of the most contentious, controversial, scandal-ridden, hateful, xenophobic, jingoistic, and just generally unlikable presidential elections in recent memory. This is at a time when we could use some more symbols of unity and togetherness.”"No offense"... but sadly it appears the supposedly apolitical Olympic Games has been hijacked by the liberal agenda - under the guise of fairness, so you can't argue with that, right? - to further the divide in today's identity politics.
Perhaps when Ibtihaj has won dozens of Olympic medals over a 20 year career, she will also get the opportunity... or perhaps a black, muslim swimmer will emerge who is gender-uncertain and slightly disabled to topple the crown of liberal queen?
