“I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president,” Olympic skier Lindey Vonn said, “I take the Olympics very seriously and what they mean and what they represent, what walking under our flag means in the opening ceremony.”
Vonn added: “I want to represent our country well. I don’t think that there are a lot of people currently in our government that do that.”
For telling the truth, the MAGAts were quickly all over her, like lies, sleaze, and slime on Trump.
“Bah ahahaha! Sucka! Trump winning baby!... #lindseyvonn is the latest to suffer from the "Trump Effect". Should keep your mouth shut and race. Don't insult us... Karma is a mo fo. Glad to see you lose. You're an anti -American... Hoping you bomb the downhill also. You were given a great honor to represent the USA but you took advantage and bashed our president. We will pull for anyone but you!”
Julie Foudy, the former U.S. women’s national soccer team captain shared this message of support for Vonn: “I just spent last 20 min's reading thru tweets directed at @lindseyvonn. Sickened & disgusted once again by the lack of humanity that engulfs our country. She just raced her damn heart out & Trump supporters gloat/cheer/celebrate her inability to medal. Is this what we've become?”
Yes, Julie. Sadly so. Thank FOX(R), Limbaugh. Breitbart, Con-servatives and Trump for ramping up their hate over the decades. This is what we’ve become.
Show your support for Lindsey by following her on Twitter at @lindseyvonn.
If you don’t like what she said, then leave and just STFU.
I wasn't aware of what Ms. Vonn said until just now.
The MAGAts certainly took offense, didn't they? I suppose they didn't like the fact she's skiing for them.
Yes, this is what we've become.
Yes and it's getting worse!
What a sad time in this country,
Dave, you're right.This is a result of 30 years of Limbaugh,and then Faux, plus all the local jerks.If you so much as disagree with us,we'll take you down.What a bunch of thin skinned bullies.
Remember the Dixie Chicks? Limbaugh took them down for saying that "They were embarrassed by Bush #2, being from Texas." Great group by the way.Bye Bye Kathy Griffin too, and Colin Kaepernick.
Good for you Lindsay Vonn. I think REAL patriots would have been pulling for you.
I guess free speech only applies selectively.
Oh yeah, one more thing,
The same hypocrites ripping on Lindsay aren't saying a word about the shooter in the most "recent" school massacre wearing a MAGA hat in one of his wonderful photos....real nice.
The thin skinned bullies are the real "special snowflakes". MAGAts can dish it out, but cannot take it. It was fine for them to call Obama a Kenyan Muslim, wasn't it?
As usual, IOKIYAR. That MAGAt shooter gets a shrug, the woman skier gets the hate. That is who they are.
Thank you for your suggestion.
Twitter now has @RantingDubya
Is this thing on?
Since I've been dragged kicking and screaming onto Twitter, I may as well start out by annoying some MAGA fanatics, clueless jerks, and other gullible fools.

The Twitter Universe welcomes DaveDubya. I for one hope that he keeps Freedom Rants for thise times 280 characters just isn’t enough. That would be most of the time.
As the indictments start to cascade I would expect rhetoric to degrade. Logical consistency was never their strong suite.
Greetings, and thank you. This Twitter thing sure is distracting.
I'm not so sure its a good thing for our country. I have this funny feeling, in the wrong hands, almost any horrible lies and hate can corrupt our public discourse.
I wonder if that's occurred to anyone yet? ;-)
The indictments will most certainly draw a torrent of fresh lies, deflections, distractions, and false accusations, as per the Regime's MO.
It is mostly differences in format. Discourse instead of name calling is always good for our country if the discourse is legitimate and not a coordinated effort to persuade the weaker minds around us (I won’t name names) of agendas and points of view they would never have thought of on their own. Longer and more complex language doesn’t lend itself so easily to mechanized answers. So I begin by insisting you are wrong. The 280 character limit illustrates a different manner of discourse and is far more accessible for many people than blogs which tend to be much longer and more complex in construction. It is a faster and arguably more thoughtless medium of communication, but it remains communication where there was none before. It is more accessible to casual writers and I believe you would agree that more people engaging in conversation is a good thing. The tradeoff is apparently that people’s ideas can be hacked easily in this format. It was at one time called propaganda. To say no harm was done is absurd.
The Twitter version: “Twitter is Great for our Nation, Dumbass.” see? differences. By the way, I enjoy your point of view always.
As evidence of my Twitter-addled brain, I’m afraid I became lost in the vast number of your words. I have only gleaned that I’m wrong, but not where I’m wrong. I’m guessing that is the advantage of Twitter. No annoying nuance, or maddening ambiguities.
Maybe 280 characters is too many for the modern American attention span. Perhaps they should cut it back to 24 characters, or whatever it used to be. I forget.
Your post stated that You aren’t sure if Twitter is good for the Country. I assure you that it is unless you consider the hours wasted Tweeting to be somehow a drain on national productivity. Which it also is. If I had any point at all it was that any form of actual conversation is better than festering resentment and hate.
Thank you for your assurance and clarification. I hope you are correct, but I’m not quite convinced.
Perhaps Twitter offers more benefits than liabilities, even with Trump and his Russian fans factored in.
Facebook and Google have also drawn blame from George Soros.
“Internet Monopolies Like Facebook and Google Have Become a Public Menace”
"Not only is the survival of open society in question; the survival of our entire civilization is at stake."
Fellow billionaire and early Facebook investor Roger McNamee has been criticizing facebook and Zuckerberg as well.
Hey, at least bloggers aren’t as much in the crosshairs.
And speaking of crosshairs, I’m afraid there’s now a need for “When MAGAts Attack, Part Two”.
Coming soon to a blog near you. I also have a feeling there will be many sequels on the theme.
Twitter is good for the Country. Just think how much more time Trump would have to fuck up things if it wasn’t for Twitter.
