The Cheapening of Gold: the First Transgender Olympics Athlete Hates the United States
As the long march through the institutions continues, the Olympics are about to see an upset in the women’s sporting events with the inclusion of transgender athletes. As I’ve written for Human Events, transgender athletes pose a threat to their biologically female counterparts.
While the Olympics is unlikely to include biologically male athletes in women’s boxing, taekwondo, and wrestling any time soon -- for obvious reasons -- the Olympics is dipping its toes in the woke waters by allowing transgender athletes to participate in BMX Freestyle, which is making its debut in the 2020 (well, 2021) Tokyo Summer Olympics.
The only saving grace is that it’s not a contact sport.
This week, Team USA announced its official roster, which is made up of six women, one of whom is transgender -- Chelsea Wolfe.
Writing on Instagram, Wolfe was happy with being included and said, “It’s taking a bit to fully register that after so many years of work we finally have the [Team USA BMX Freestyle] squad for the [Olympics] and that after so much work and overcoming so many obstacles I’ve qualified to represent the United States as the alternate rider.”
“I am positively a different person than when I set off on this journey and I’m so grateful for every experience along the way and I’m so excited and honored to keep working so I’m ready to shred in Tokyo in case I’m needed.”
At first glance, one might be happy for Wolfe. After all, it’s quite an accomplishment to be a part of Team USA -- even if only as an alternate. Alternates are, generally speaking, no less competitive than the members of the A-team. In Wolfe’s case, Wolfe has a physical advantage over everyone else in the competition, and Team USA knows it.
Wolfe’s acceptance aside, the athlete is a bad fit for Team USA, because Wolfe hates America.
Posting on Facebook in March 2020 Chelsea Andrea Wolfe wrote: “My goal is to win the Olympics so I can burn a US flag on the podium.”
Wolfe made those remarks in response to a Pinknews article about former President Trump and former Attorney General Bill Barr titled “Trump administration officially declares it believes trans girls should be treated as ‘biological males.’”
“This is what they focus on during a pandemic. Hurting trans children,” added Wolfe.
In the replies, Wolfe made comments suggesting that the then-U.S. President be assassinated.
“I would never say that someone should explode the head of the president. That would be illegal,” Wolfe wrote.
“But I will say ‘with dynamite.’ Because that’s just a sentence fragment and doesn’t actually mean anything. It’s not necessarily related to the sentence that came before it.”
As an athlete, and now Olympian, Wolfe knows fine well that the biological advantage she possesses puts her ahead of the competition and capitalizes on wokeness to attend the most prestigious sporting event in the world under the Team USA banner.
Caitlyn Jenner, Olympic gold medalist, made similar comments when asked about girls’ sports in schools and the inclusion of transgender people.
"This is a question of fairness," she said. "That's why I oppose biological boys who are trans competing in girls' sports in school. It just isn't fair. And we have to protect girls' sports in our schools."
Even discounting that fact, Wolfe still hates America and everything it stands for -- this is not someone who should be representing the crème de la crème of women in sports.
As the Olympics becomes more “inclusive” over the coming years, don’t be surprised to see “less progressive” countries lodge official complaints or even boycotts of the Olympics if their female-only teams are outclassed and outmatched by the new breed of woke American athletes.
