KUDOS to Kobe Bryant … “You know what? Our country is the best!”
How bad has the liberal media become when it takes a multi-million dollar, pampered professional athlete shows more patriotism than a liberal sports announcer? NBC and Chris Collinsworth should be ashamed of themselves for the line of questioning. Collinsworth actually questioned whether “it was cool for you love your country, and that you’re fighting for the red, white and blue.” Making matters worse, Collinsworth had a stupid smirk on his face when asking the question.
Gold Medal for Idiot of the day goes to … Chris Collinsworth
I have never been a Kobe Bryant fan; however, after his inspiring and heart felt comments about patriotism and representing his country … I might just become one. As Newsbusters stated, “apparently Collinsworth was shocked that a black man could be at all patriotic and proud of being a representative of his country”. All we can say is Thanks Kobe for your patriotism and pride in wearing the red, white and blue … maybe that’s why this Olympics Re-deem Team is on a mission and crushing all opponents. To NBC … Shame on you!
Collinsworth: Tell the story when you first got your USA uniform.
Kobe: Well I had goosebumps and I actually just looked at it for awhile. I just held it there and I laid it across my bed and I just stared at it for a few minutes; just because as a kid growing up this is the ultimate, ultimate in basketball.
Collinsworth: Where does the patriotism come from inside of you? Historically, what is it?
Kobe: Well, you know it’s just our country, it’s… we believe is the greatest country in the world. It has given us so many great opportunities, and it’s just a sense of pride that you have; that you say “You know what? Our country is the best!”
Collinsworth: Is that a ‘cool’ thing to say, in this day and age? That you love your country, and that you’re fighting for the red, white and blue? It seems sort of like a day gone by.
Kobe: No, it’s a cool thing for me to say. I feel great about it, and I’m not ashamed to say it. I mean, this is a tremendous honor.
It’s pretty moving to watch a pampered professional jock show more patriotism than the Democratic candidate for president, more pride in his country than the democratic candidate’s wife, and more awareness of this country’s opportunities than a liberal NBC announcer.
