"Obviously … the support that Mexico has on the night like tonight makes it a home game for them," said U.S. Coach Bob Bradley, choosing his words carefully. "It's part of something we have to deal with on the night."
The US soccer team booed, its players on the receiving end of vile obscenities in LA's Rose Bowl, and the left-wing media calls this a marvelous moment for America. Yes, the LA Times is at it again (where's the Rashid Khalidi tape, traitors?).
The media is the face and voice of liberal hate of America. It's bad enough that the US soccer team's "fans were vastly outnumbered." "Its [Our] goalkeeper bathed in a chanted obscenity. Even its [our] national anthem was filled with the blowing of air horns and bouncing of beach balls." The American scribe who penned the article can't even bring himself to say "our" (he says "its" instead), but has the unmitigated gall to call it "uniquely American."
Most of these hostile visitors didn't live in another country. Most, in fact, were not visitors at all, many of them being U.S. residents whose lives are here but whose sporting souls remain elsewhere.
To which LA Times reporter Bill Plaschke waxed moronically:
How many places are so diverse that it could fill football stadiums with folks whose roots are somewhere else? How many places offer such a freedom of speech that someone can display an American flag on their porch one day and cheer against the flag the next?
I hated it, but I loved it. I was felt as if I was in a strange place, and yet I felt right at home.
Long after that comeback was complete, when the stadium was finally cleared and the party had moved to the parking lot, the Rose Bowl field contained scattered patches of blue and gold celebration glitter. It was messy, and mangled, and beautiful.
There is something fundamentally wrong with America. The land of milk and honey, of opportunity and freedom, is held in contempt, not only by those who fled here and got a better life but by those elites whose fat off the unlimited prospects of capitalism provides for these bloodsuckers. Bereft of a value system, they inpose their moral illness on the public at large and project a country ashamed of itself.
Their dream? The broken giant. The American identity must be destroyed by the destroyers -- there is no end to their decades-long war on us.
In Gold Cup final, it's red, white and boo again by Bill Plaschke, LA Times
Mexico rallies for a 4-2 win over U.S. behind overwhelming support at Rose Bowl. In what other country would the visitors have home-field advantage?
It was imperfectly odd. It was strangely unsettling. It was uniquely American.
On a balmy early Saturday summer evening, the U.S soccer team played for a prestigious championship in a U.S. stadium … and was smothered in boos.
