Will they leave the court again?
The WNBA team has confirmed they no plans to leave the court for the national anthem during Olympic competitions this coming week, as they shamefully have during the past season.
Sue Bird and other WNBA players have been “at the forefront of social justice protests.”
During the 2021 season, most players have left the court before the national anthem has played, Fox News reports.
Bird said, “You are wearing USA jerseys, and it does change the conversation a little bit and what you’re representing.”
She continued, “With that, I don’t feel like a hypocrite in any way. Everyone knows where we stand. I don’t think it contradicts anything since we’re actually doing the work.”
She said she believes people know where their stance is on social justice issues.
“We all want our country to be a better place, and that’s what this is about,” Bird added. “That’s an athlete’s mentality, and there’s really no better people to do that than athletes. What do we do every single day? What do we talk about? Getting better. … I think we should approach our country that way.”
Political gestures are allowed before official competitions begin but barred on the medal stands and during events. The U.S. women’s soccer team knelt earlier in the week before their match against Sweden.

“What is wrong with this guy?” questioned former White House physician Ronny Jackson during Biden’s recent CNN town hall.
Well, now we might have an answer. We have reported extensively on Biden, 78, and his inability to handle basic questions while speaking publicly.
As the former White House physician under both Presidents Obama and Trump, Ronny Jackson told Fox News that he believes Biden will be forced to resign or will face the 25th Amendment over issues related to his fitness for office. “Something’s SERIOUSLY wrong with Biden,” Jackson wrote on social media. “And it’s only going to get WORSE! It’s past the point of embarrassment.”
Jackson continued, “He’s lost. He’s confused. He can barely put a coherent sentence together.” “He MUST have a cognitive exam and release the results!” Jackson added. Watch the clip:
