Beating Megan Rapinoe is the most racist, sexist, homophobic thing I’ve seen so far.
I should have known that Canadians were the real fascists.
Woke warrior Megan Rapinoe and her Team USA colleagues have been widely mocked following a shock defeat in the Olympic Games semifinals to cross-border rivals Canada, leaving the captain looking stunned at the final whistle.
The 1-0 win, secured via a late VAR-awarded penalty by Jessica Fleming 16 minutes from time, represented the first occasion on which Canada had beaten the USWNT in 20 years.
Despite dominating swathes of the game, the USA failed to find the net for the third time in their five matches in Tokyo.
Rapinoe was visibly emotional after the surprise exit, with a photo of her stunned face swiftly doing the rounds on the internet.
“It’s terrible,” the 36-year-old admitted to NBC. “Obviously [it was] not our best game. Not our best tournament. We didn’t have it today.
“Too many errors from us. I felt like the space was there for us. We just couldn’t get into it. We never want to lose to Canada. I don’t think I’ve ever lost to Canada.
“[There’s] still a lot to compete for. That’s what I told the girls. It’s not the color we want but there’s still a medal on the line. It sucks,” Rapinoe added, referencing their upcoming bronze match.
I think these rising hostilities from Canada can only be met with one solution: war.
After all, coronavirus leaked into our country from a Canadian laboratory.
What can we do other than respond directly to these attacks?
The racists are going crazy after this Canadian attack.

I support watching Megan Rapinoe lose.
They kneeled. They shouldn’t represent America.

I hope the #USWNT lose the bronze game too! ? #karma don’t kneel in front of the ?? next time. Why represent a country you’re not proud of? Yea you @mPinoe, concentrate on soccer instead of politics. ?? Good win! pic.twitter.com/NeINL4wekw

This is a direct attack on Black Lives Matter and our values.
