A house divided

A Newsmax host heralded US loses at the Olympics:

“It’s not often that I’m happy a U.S. team loses in the Olympics. It makes me sad to say it, but I found myself rooting against not just Megan Rapinoe and her merry band of America-hating female soccer players,  but I took pleasure in the men’s basketball team, USA’s, first team loss since 2004. 

“The collection of whiny, overpaid social justice warriors are very hard to root for. The team is filled with anthem-kneelers, and I find it ironic they are willing to put USA across their chest, but in the not-so-distant past, they would kneel for the anthem. 

“Somebody ought to go up to them and just rip USA off their chest. I don’t want them wearing it, personally.” – Newsmax host Grant Stinchfield, who was once the host of the now-defunct NRA TV.

When politics separates America that much. When we can’t look at our fellow Americans with respect and dignity, we are truly in trouble.

Let’s overcome the media hype. Let’s join hands at our dinner tables and denounce all division.

If your news shows are dividing Americans, consider pushing it to the side in honor of your familial love.
