If she was a white girl from the Midwest, it gets zero coverage in today’s media

re: Why are some people making Simone Biles a political story?
It’s the fact that she’s been called the GOAT and then quits. Whether it’s for mental issues or she’s hurt physically, it doesn’t matter. The chick on the 96 team competed with a broken ankle. MJ played through food poisoning in the NBA finals. If it’s mental then it just shows how weak minded young people are today. They can’t handle pressure and more importantly they can’t handle criticism. The black tennis player from Japan is the same way. Blames mental health whenever she loses. What happens when you grow up on social media. I have nothing personally against Simone but goats don’t give up that easily when things get tough, they fight through it. Life isn’t one big liberal arts college.

It’s more on the media. If Biles wanted to drop out, that’s her decision, but don’t tell all of us she’s a hero for doing so.
She is neither a villain nor a hero.


You watch Shaprio?

I agree, btw.

I didn't even know she existed till she quit or whatever she did. I don't care at all now that I do know.

re: Why are some people making Simone Biles a political story?
So she quits the Olympics to deal with mental health issues?
What's that all about?

The young lady is at the top of her game. World Class. Invest huge amount of time and energy to prepare for the Olympics. Then she quits.

Because the powers that be want Americans attacking the sweet black girl as evidence that racism is alive and well.

Great work giving them what they want.

A lack of empathy, I suppose. If she really is struggling with the mental side of things, I lean towards cutting her some slack.

re: Why are some people making Simone Biles a political story?
The one's making it political are the one's making excuses for her quitting. So far I've heard "a doctor molested some girls"....which is awful....but it has nothing to do with her choking yesterday and quitting. Then I've heard that we should care about "mental health". She's not bipolar..and she didn't quit because of PTSD. She quit because of pressure. That has nothing to do with mental illness. Then, I heard that the Judges were scoring her differently. Well....I looked, and the one who is making that allegation is none other than Simone Biles herself. No judge has said they were scoring her different. (Sounds like sour grapes.) For 4 years, she has profited off of her ability. She wears a jacket proclaiming she is the GOAT. She put herself in this position....knew what she was doing, and that is that. At the end of the day, the reason there is backlash is because the media is throwing out every excuse they can think of to say this was different than any other high profile athlete competing and choking. (That doesn't make her evil....just not a real leader.) They talk about her courage. Sorry, but choking under pressure isn't courageous. Quitting on your team isn't either. Want to talk about courage??? Her teammates stuck their neck out, knowing they'd been abandoned and hung out to dry....competed anyway and won a silver medal. Now THAT is what courage looks like. This is the silliest shite I've ever seen. Upham in Saving Private Ryan was more of a courageous hero than Simon....

re: Why are some people making Simone Biles a political story?
One thing is for sure...Biles will have this on her head for the duration of her life. And it will not be a positive thing. Nor is it something that she can blame on someone else (molestation, racism, politics, economic exploitation, etc.)

This aside, one never knows one's limit, until one exceeds said limit. Therein the hurt, and the knowledge of one's limitation. 24 is damn young, any way you cut it. I think she is a good person, and given the years of hard discipline and serious pressure...she reached her limit at the the most pressure filled time of her life. She broke. All who push hard, will, sooner or later.

IMO, she should become a-political and work in ways that she can be a positive influence on those who idolize her. Her 'fold' can be a plus, if she admits it and uses it in a good way. If she lets the Left drag her in...she embraces the 'victimhood' lie...and goes south in the long run.

Prayers for her success.

Everyone is a victim nowadays. Simone has these couch taters literally shaking because apparently she owes us all something.

It’s because people politicize everything these days. They act like she was trying to make some statement when really she just couldn’t carry on mentally. It is what it is. Some will praise her, some will criticize her.

I couldn't care less about USA gymnastics and agree with you that she owes NBC and NBC's customers nothing, but I wonder how her teammates feel. Maybe not now while cameras are rolling but after the Olympics and with time to reflect on what happened - if they're like 99.999% of competitors that have reached a level like the Olympics, they ain't going to be happy and will resent her wigging out at the last moment.

if anything, this story shows what weak fathers we have in this nation. Larry Nassar should be swinging from a tree in a public square

I love how the left sucks so bad at meme’ing that they have to recycle phrases that we quit using like 6 years ago. Go back to Reddit fag
