NY Post: Olympic Hammer Thrower Gwen Berry “Pissed” National Anthem Was Playing at Olympic Trials

A picture is worth a thousand words.

In the scowling face and ingratitude of Gwen Berry, we can see the result of America’s sick obsession with “antiracism.” It has been 55 years since the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 were passed. Affirmative action also dates back to the JFK administration.

The 1960s were the high tide of “antiracism” when the country threw itself at the feet of blacks, transformed every single institution in the country to uplift blacks, dismantled its own national identity to be more inclusive of blacks, indicted White people on the basis of their race and mistreatment of blacks and began the transfer of trillions of dollars in social welfare spending to blacks.

New York Post:

“A US hammer thrower turned away from the American flag as the national anthem played while she and two other athletes stood on the podium at the Olympic trials Saturday, later saying she was “pissed” that “The Star-Spangled Banner” played as she received her bronze medal.

Gwen Berry — who qualified for her second US Olympic team during the trials — shifted to face the stands rather than the flag before holding up a black shirt that read, “Activist Athlete.”

“I feel like it was a setup, and they did it on purpose,” Berry said of the anthem being played. “I was pissed, to be honest.

“They had enough opportunities to play the national anthem before we got up there,” Berry said in Oregon, where the trials are being held. “I was thinking about what I should do. Eventually I stayed there and I swayed, I put my shirt over my head. …”


Blacks now take for granted the way that they are at the center of America’s moral imagination. They now take for granted the willingness of White people to flagellate themselves and submit and grovel to blacks. They have become accustomed to whining and getting whatever they want.

If White women were put up on a pedestal in the early 19th century, blacks are now put up on a pedestal in our times. They are worshipped as sacred beings by woke progressives. Congress recently nearly unanimously replaced July the 4th with Juneteenth in order to make blacks feel better about their place in this country. We’re now told by blacks like Ibram X. Kendi that the only way to be “antiracist” is to be racist against Whites and the political establishment has gone along with this.

If you don’t get down on your knees and worship blacks and repent of your “white privilege” and work your way to full “White abolition,” well, you are racist. You’re also still a racist for bothering to do that. In spite of all these sacrifices and gestures of goodwill, blacks are still as alienated as ever from American patriotism. They are becoming more, not less likely, to reject the civic nationalism that White people have suppressed their own identity and interests for decades to prop up. Every time they kneel or shrug their shoulders and scowl when the national anthem is played – this is when they are not rioting and looting stores like last summer – it reveals the utter futility and failure of this racial uplift project.

Note: America’s quest to uplift and integrate blacks since the 1960s is the greatest, most expensive monumental project ever undertaken by a civilization in world history. In much the same way, the Rapa Nui who built the stone heads of their deified ancestors on Easter Island destroyed themselves. In the United States, we deify blacks and sacrifice everything to them to appease our angry gods.

  1. Well, that just caused a lot of people to tune out of the Olympics. Everything Wokeness touches, it ruins. Never watched the Olympics anyway. Unlike American sports, these are watched by people all over the world. Who don’t care what his racial hang ups are.This jerk just ruined it for his team mates too. One thing about Wokeness. It has a powerful ability to turn a person into a total ass.

  2. I’m not much for standing for the National Anthem either but for entirely different reasons than the ones this ungrateful knee grow has.

  3. Getting indignant because blacks aren’t patriotic is the result of boomercon delusions. It is based on the premise that we are all part of the same group and ought to revere the same symbols. I don’t expect blacks to care about us or respect our stuff because I don’t view us as being part of the same group. A “national anthem” for a multi-national state is an absurdity.

    • @Dart,

      Yes, indeed. Being offended by the negress disrespecting the US national anthem is totally a boomercon/Trumptard reaction.

      Just this afternoon, I has a functionally autistic boomercon bring up this event. He of course will not be watching team America’s humanzees at the Tokyo Olympics. This guy is a living meme of the boomertards with their “Greatest economy ever.”

    • @Dart – That is all fine, but anyone who hates the nation that gave them literally everything they have just needs to get the f#ck OUT.

  4. The United States continues to shock me despite my low expectations. Even a liberal Canadian classmate a little while back mentioned to us how shocked she was on the race situation and how blacks were. My Mexican girl friends laughed. My anglo friends did not dare laugh. It was as if they were afraid they might get reported.

    The first thing I noticed in the USA was that blacks in the USA are more important than God. Blaspheme against God or use Jesus’ name in vain and it is no big deal in this country. Use a racial slur on blacks and it is supposedly the worse thing ever.

    This is why I really only trust people of my own blood. I only tell the truth with other Latins speaking Spanish when even my anglo classmates are around. Every latin American I know feels the same way. I think my anglo girl friends agree but are very afraid. And that is disturbing. Maybe understandable perhaps.

    • “Blaspheme against God or use Jesus’ name in vain and it is no big deal in this country. Use a racial slur on blacks and it is supposedly the worse thing ever”:

      If you use slurs on people, who are made in the image of God, it is as essentially the same as a slur on God. Jesus said anyone who calls someone a worthless fool is in danger of hellfire. We cannot both love God and hate people.

      • You do not know scripture. Your private interpretation of the bible is worthless. To say that an insult to a human is the same as blasphemy against God is twisted. But then so are you. One can go to hell for an atrocity against another human but it is still not the same as blasphemy and sacrilege.

        Also, insults including racial insults to whites are not considered comparable to insults to blacks.

        You are a monster. Why Hunter Wallace allows you here is beyond me. But then I find Americans to be bizarre. Any communication with you is an impossibility. No one on this website is going to become a communist because of your propaganda.

        You need to see a doctor for your head. I am being serious. You haunt this website more than Ivan, Krafty, or Span 1970. Do any of you men have jobs?

        I know you will respond but it is best if I ignore you. When you die you can tell the Devil how matters should be.

          • comrade anonymous,

            By Catholic standards each biblical verse can only be interpreted by the Church not private interpretation. The last part strikes to the point, especially the last sentence. Your overall communism is satanic and you using christianity as a cover is heresy, blasphemy, and idolatry.

            Matthew 5:22

            Thou fool.—The Greek word so rendered agrees accidentally in its consonants with the Hebrew word translated “rebel” (m’re) in Numbers 20:10, and hence it has been thought by some that we have here, as with raca, a common Hebrew term of opprobrium. There is no evidence, however, that the word was thus used, and it is more probable that the Greek is a translation of some word which, like the “fool” of the Old Testament, implied, as in Psalm 14:1, utter godlessness as well as lack of intellectual wisdom. With that meaning it embodied the temper, not, like that represented by raca, of petulant contempt, but of fixed and settled hatred. That it was the temper and not the utterance of the mere syllables which our Lord condemned is seen in that He Himself used the word of the scribes and Pharisees (Matthew 23:17; Matthew 23:19), and St. Paul of the sceptical Greek materialist (1Corinthians 15:36). The self-same word might spring from a righteous indignation or from malignant hatred.

            Take it or leave it.

        • “Your private interpretation of the bible is worthless”:

          It is not “private interpretation” to not accept that “God has a mother,” and to NOT worship Mary (Mariolatry). “Away with these Popish idolatries!” https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=cromwell+movie+way+with+popish+idolatries&docid=608027181497781693&mid=564DB396D1E60C9AB316564DB396D1E60C9AB316&view=detail&FORM=VIRE

          “And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common”: Acts 2:44 = From each according to his ability, to each according to his need….

          • Flax,

            You are hilarious. I think comrade anonymous has a crush on me. Do you think anonymous has ever been the life of a party even a dour bolshevik one?

      • You don’t believe in God or Heaven and Hell. You just want create hell on Earth.

      • Any word used to describe Black people gets polluted and ruined merely by association. Call the blacks “Orchids” for long enough and that word becomes a slur. The constant shifting terms for the disabled over time like “Retard”, or “Handicapped” similarly become slurs eventually even though they were at first polite terms.

        • Like “idiot” or “moron” or “imbecile”. “Colored people” became “People of Color”. The worst is, IMO, “African American”.

        • @Captain – EXCELLENT summation! I’ve been stewing over a comment I read recently (not here) wherein a normie was flogging himself over the fact that slur words for Blacks are so much worse than those for Whites. I responded that perhaps he should flip the equation and wonder why words used to slur Blacks are imbued with so much more negative power. That, and of course it’s always acceptable to hate Whitey.

    • “The United States continues to shock me despite my low expectations.” So why are you here if it sucks so much? I would never, even at my most wrist-slittingly low point, even consider going to a retarded mestizo country with flies, manure dust, and diarrhea everywhere like the one you came from.

      • yawn. My family has owned land north of the Rio since the 19th century. And the USA does suck to use your words. Spend your time trying to make it better instead of wasting your time on me.

        I am not an illegal.

    • @Cristina,

      From my experience, the best Anglo nationalists are in Australia. It’s like all the testosterone was taken out of England and transferred to the “Land down under.”

        • @Cristina,

          My hypothesis is that most of the Alpha males were killed, or unable to sire children after all the wars their upper class elites sent them to die for their benefit and the jew’s enrichment. So what England is left with is primarily Beta cucks.

          All in all, it’s probably for the best that England is just a eunuch on the world stage. Just look at all the civilizational damage they have caused over the past 140 years to Western kind.

          • November,

            That is as good an explanation as any. The two world wars were horrible and the third world war will be worse. Interesting that if you wave the wand and I was tsarina of Russia in 1914 I would never commit my nation to mass slaughter.

            And neither would you. War is a terrible action and can only be taken under certain circumstances and I cry for the dead and mutilated.

          • I used to believe that, but I don’t know anymore. Probably some truth to it, but I think a lot of it is just toxic feminism in the West. Sweden didn’t lose its best men, but they are a bunch of weaklings too. Russia lost more men than anyone, but they still seem to have Men in that country, and it is not controlled by women and fairies.

      • A true nationalist respects other nations, but the “nationalist” Aussies are eager to join every imperialist war.

      • You’ve got to be kidding. Australia used to have cojones because it was originally settled as a penal and debtors colony. Unbelievable though what can happen in just a couple of centuries. Did you not see how those Aussies just cucked over and turned in their guns?

        • @Flaxen,

          I’m not talking about relinquishing their guns, but WN vim and vigor.

          By the way, we in the USA have firearms, but ZOG’s Red Terror are rounding up AmNats without a shot fired.

    • @Kangfish
      A black shoots a white………….’not all blacks are like that’.
      Slavery in Alabama in 1860……….’all whites are responsible’.

  5. Sha boom sha boom, da da da da da da Sha boom sha boom……..


    There was a do wop song that went like that.

  6. Their behaviour disturbs me not , it only demonstrates, how immature and classless they are, with their pity party for all the world to see, dealing with the woke is a challenge, not an impossibility, one thing my mother taught us was, never embarras me in publick, enough,enough of their heathen behaviour, they really need to be set straight.

  7. The US national anthem doesn’t mean anything to me. At is point, it sounds the same as klezmer music.

    The Winter Olympics are more to my tastes.

    I’ll be pulling for the Russians, Serbs, Croatians during the upcoming Olympic Games.

  8. No stinking, perpetually-“outraged” nigger represents me in any way. I always root for the White athletes of any nationality against obsolete ‘Murcan farm implements.

  9. Maybe she’s ‘oppressed’, ‘disadvantaged’………and somehow a ‘victim’.
    The better they have it, the more they bitch. She’s doing something she enjoys, likely gets paid well for it……so how exactly is she worse off than your average working class white?
    Maybe she can move to Ghana. Oh hang on…….no whites there to be ‘oppressed’ by…

  10. Sorry Mr. Wallace, but Anglin has got the best (and most humorous) take on this story.

  11. Cristina, I think Mexicans have a better handle on this than Americans. I agree with Andrew Anglin on this incident, and how how says this worship of blacks is a new form of idolatry. He wonders if it is a sign of the end times, when people will worship false gods, and blacks are as false a god as any.

    Mexicans do tend to stick up for themselves. The raza, they call themselves. As a Mexican friend of mine said, Mexico doesn’t need an army and can probably do better without one, because if the gringos invaded, the people would rise up. Think of Spain rising against Napoleon.
    Americans, despite being seduced by all the equality talk, are obsessed with democracy. Yet democracy essentially means a way to control the masses. Supposedly, the Americans will use democracy to get the blacks to be ‘reasonable,’ but the blacks aren’t. They want more control, and the Jews will guide them into demanding more. Both, like all minorities, want to see the whites destroyed. They’ll close ranks for that.
    I could never see Mexicans doing the black worship thing, but they have their own problems and mores, and have little compassion for such a different and troublesome group as blacks.

    America reminds me, in a strange way, of 19th century China. it was bureaucratized, corrupt, insular, had a real drug (opium) problem, and in the end other powers forced their way in, dominated it and carved it up into spheres of influence. America is letting itself become like this to the above groups and globalist corporations. China had a Mao. Where is ours?
    Where is our Zapata?

    • dargason,

      It is pleasant to hear from you again. Yes, the term guerilla warfare came from the Spanish during the Napoleonic wars. The worship of blacks is of course not just an obsession but as you wrote a form of idolatry.

      Mexico does have it’s problems such as crime and corruption but Mexico does have an improving health care system and the life expectancy of Mexico is 75,24 as of 2021. That of the USA is 78.99. So it is reasonable. The USA also seems corrupt especially at the highest levels.

      I think it is very nice that you mentioned Zapata. My great-grandmother served under a general who was under Zapata in the Mexican Revolution. At a family home in Mexico we have a picture of her with the typical sombrero, bandoliers, and long dress. The picture is from 1916 when she was sixteen years.

      • Your AMLO is head and shoulders above U.S. Presidents; hence, the U.S. is working to unseat him and derail his party.

        Mexico has had even better leaders than Obrador, that have been derailed or overthrown by the US, which dominates Latin American politics. A communist candidate is leading in the polls in Chile now, but will never be allowed to win. The indigenous socialist candidate who managed to win the election in Peru against massive US interference is still not recognized by the US and every method is being used to either prevent him from holding office or to bring him under full control. Castillo is already caving in to the pressure, making promises not to regulate Western corporations and to let the chief corrupt banker remain in his position permanently. None of these is up to the standard of Mao and Che.

        • anonymous,

          The USA interferes heavily in Mexico and everywhere else because they believe the world is an American planet. It is nice of you to write amiably considering the internet exchange above. If I remember correctly the Venezuelan country that the usa hates bans homosexual marriages and abortion making it way more decent than the USA.

          If I had to choose between Venezuela and the USA I on religious grounds based on my current knowledge choose—-Venezuela.

          And for what it may be worth I consider China to be no threat currently to most of the world. Russia even less so. That does not mean I would write a poem about them however.

  12. Chiang Kai-shek…or they used to say ‘General cash-my-check.’ oddly enough, in Columbia Missouri, where I used to live, at Columbia College, the Chinese/Taiwanese students there built a memorial shrine to Chiang Kai Shek. It is the only known monument to him outside of Taiwan.
    People in Columbia are proud of it, although they aren’t quite sure who or what Chiang-Kai-Shek was.

    Cristina, Americans tend to believe they are a chosen people who know what’s best. A Mexican friend of mine said to me ‘the only reason America has no coups is because America has no American embassies on its soil.’ He had no illusions about American control and manipulation.

    China and Russia are threats…to the globalist west. China was supposed to be the compliant factory for the globalist heads, but the Chinese got ideas of their own, and now they…have to be stopped? How? Go to war, and we essentially destroy our economy? I wonder if Bill gates and Jeff Bezos really want suicide. Maybe they do. These are mad times.
    As my Mexican friend said (in the 1970’s), ‘in Mexico and the rest of Latin America, we wish you and the Russians would just blow each other up so the world could get along with life and business.’
