Transgender BMX Cyclist Chelsea Wolfe, who was just announced as an ALTERNATE on USA’s olympic team, reportedly said she would “burn a US flag on the podium” if she happened to win a medal during the games in Tokyo, Japan this year.
In a now-deleted Facebook post from March 2021, Wofe wrote:
“My goal is to win the Olympics so I can burn a US flag on the podium,”
Wolfe’s post linked to a Fake News story from a Far-Left outlet claiming the transgender community was “under attack” from the Trump administration. Meanwhile, Trump never attacked the transgender community. In fact, he saved them from undue war, issuing a transgender ban in the US military.
The Team USA BMX roster was announced this week and Wolfe, 28, of Florida, is one of six members on the cycling team. She is only one of two transgender athletes announced in the Tokyo games thus far.
“It’s taking a bit to fully register that after so many years of work we finally have the @teamusa BMX freestyle squad for the @olympics, and that after so much work and overcoming so many obstacles that I’ve qualified to represent the United States as the alternate rider,” Wolfe said after the announcement.
News of her deleted Anti-American Facebook post circulated on Monday, and Wolfe was quick to respond.
“To whoever thinks I don’t care about the United States is sorely mistaken,” Wolfe said in an interview.
Referring to the Trump and his administration as “fascist,” Wolfe continued:
“I take a stand against fascism because I care about this country and I’m not going to let it fall into the hands of fascists after so many people have fought and sacrificed to prevent fascism from taking hold abroad.”
What in the world is this supposed to mean? Which definition of fascism, what fascist tendencies did Trump or his administration ever demonstrate? While those on the Left love making that claim about the Former President, not one has yet to define a single policy that denotes fascism.
According to her biography on the USA Cycling website, Wolfe began racing at the age of six in April 2000, competing at the state and national levels until she was in her early 20s.
She took an interest in BMX Freestyle riding on her 15th birthday and started competing in that genre in 2014 at the Florida BMX park series.
She finished third at both the US National and Pan American Championships during the 2019 season.
On Twitter, Wolfe showed that she’s falling into the trap many high-level athletes and celebrities succumb to — the narcissistic believe that just because you’re good at something, means that people should care about your political opinion.
