‘Woke’ U.S. Men’s Olympic Basketball Team Suffer 1st Loss Since 2004

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

The U.S. men’s Olympic basketball team led is by “woke” coach Gregg Popovich, who once admitted that he is “embarrassed as a white person” as a result of the death of George Floyd.

The vast majority of U.S. Olympic basketball players, if not all of them, have participated in “woke” protests during the National Anthem during their playing history.

Now the team lost to France in the opening game in Tokyo. This is the first loss since 2004.

Popovich has been leading the woke movement in the NBA, according to sports media reports.

The NY Post reported, “Team USA men’s basketball was fried by the French in a stunning opening loss at the Tokyo Olympics. The Americans led Team France by seven with under four minutes remaining, but the French scored the next 14 points for a shocking 83-76 victory Sunday at Saitama Super Arena.”

The French team left the Americans stunned and handed them their first loss since 2004 when the United States lost its Olympic opener to Puerto Rico by 19 points. At the time, that was Team USA’s first loss since 1992, when the International Olympic Committee opened up participation to professional athletes. Team USA went on to win the bronze medal in 1992, and it seems the 2021 team may be aiming lower than previous squads.

Evan Fournier, a breakout star for Team France, excused the American team, rationalizing that a number of Team USA players were fresh off the NBA Finals.


TRENDING 👇 Video: Angry Leftist Confronts Tucker Carlson

The radical Left is out of control. “We know where you sleep at night,” protesters were caught saying on video while surrounding Tucker Carlson’s home in 2018.

More recently, Tucker Carlson was confronted at a sporting goods store in Livingston, Montana. “You are the worst human being known to mankind,” a man said to Carlson inside the store. “I want you to know that.” The video was posted to Instagram with another horrible remark by the man: “It’s not everyday you get to tell someone they are the worst person in the world and really mean it! What an a**hole!”

The left-wing agitator continued to criticize Carlson by saying, “This man has killed more people with vaccine misinformation, he has supported extreme racism, he is a fascist and does more to rip this country apart than anyone that calls themselves an American.”

However, Tucker Carlson handled the situation by showing the leftist “who the bigger man was with his reaction.” “I’m not going to debate you,” Carlson said and then turned to smile at the person recording the video. “I don’t care, man,” the man replied. “Dude, you are the worst human being known to man. I want you to know that… I don’t care that your daughter’s here. What you’ve done to people’s families, what you have done to everybody else.”

“Son,” Carlson said and walked away. “Don’t call me son,” he responded “in a threatening manner,” Kyle Becker of Becker News reports. Watch for yourself:
