The Reverend Jesse Jackson is making headlines for viciously attacking U.S. Olympian Erin Hamlin, who proudly led Team USA into the opening ceremonies, carrying the Ameican flag. What’s his beef with the bronze medal winner? Well, she’s white, and that’s her big crime according to the far leftist reverend who is now shocked after he got a nasty surprise, making him look like a fool.

The drama around the “flagbearer” for Team USA started several days ago. Carrying Old Glory and leading the American team into the opening ceremonies at the Olympics is a big deal, and there is a method by which the flagbearer is chosen. There is a vote by the athletes from each of the eight winter sports federations, and there was a tie between luger Erin Hamlin and speedskater Shani Davis, according to Yahoo News.

The Olympic rules state that, in the case of a tie, there is a coin toss. The four-time Olympian and winner of a luge bronze medal at the 2014 Sochi games won the coin toss, and immediately, the loser, speedskater Shani Davis, played the race card. In a tweet posted to his account, Davis said the process by which Hamlin won was executed “dishonorably,” and he included a reference to Black History Month, suggesting Hamlin got the nod due to pure racism.

Below is a screenshot of the tweet. After his post went viral and after Americans became outraged over his ridiculous “Black Lives Matter” delusions, the spoiled speedskater made his Twitter “private.” Then, Davis boycotted the opening ceremonies like a big crybaby in a final slap in the face to Team USA.

This is where that loser Reverend Jesse Jackson stepped in, deciding to throw gasoline on the fire Davis started. Jackson tweeted, “The choice to represent our country as #flagbearer in the @Olympics should never be determined by the flip of a coin. The Committee should immediately institute a more appropriate system to make such a significant determination. @ShaniDavis.”

Jackson is viciously attacking Erin Hamlin, implying she is not qualified to carry the American flag in the opening ceremonies. The ole Rev. Jesse backed up the NFL players who knelt disrespecting Old Glory, yet when it comes to carrying the flag in the Olympics, all of a sudden, the flag is important? Well, we all know this isn’t about patriotism or love of country — this is political pandering and hypocrisy at its best.

As we explained, the coin toss is to break a tie, and the system worked. After Davis racist tantrum, he then had the audacity to boycott the opening ceremonies? Americans, hands down, are glad he didn’t carry the flag. Do you think the good reverend would have posted his tweet if Davis lost to another African-American athlete?

There is no doubt that Shani Davis is a world-class athlete, a five-time Olympian with two gold medals and two silver medals, but he lacks character. He’s a spoiled racist, and he is no team player. That’s why Davis didn’t win with a majority vote in the first place. Obviously, there were a number of athletes on Team USA who did not vote for him and who thought Erin Hamlin should have the honor.

In fact, her humility in an earlier interview tells us the coin toss win luckily went to the right Olympian. Erin Hamlin did not think she deserved the extraordinary honor of carrying the American flag, and that’s why she was the best choice. Shani Davis saw it as an entitlement that was owed to him.

“In December, when asked in an interview if Hamlin thought it would be possible [to carry the flag in the opening ceremonies], she laughed. ‘To me, that always seems to be a really, really big-name person,’ Hamlin said at the time,” reported The Guardian.

Americans across the country let Jesse Jackson know he’s a total idiot, just as they told Shani Davis that he’s a racist, causing him to make his Twitter account private.

Greg Dougherty responded to Jackson, tweeting, “An Olympian this accomplished and his teammates do not vote for him. What does that tell you? He is a diva. He made his choice when he did not race for the team, choosing to concentrate on individual glory. Or, half of the Olympians are racist. He has a bad attitude.”

Putting it into a certain perspective that only the idiots on the left can understand, Jamie Lane sarcastically told the reverend, “I heard the Russians hacked the coin toss.”

“You, Rev Jackson, promote the OPPOSITE of everything America, unification, the Olympics and sportsmanship stand for. Sad to see you weigh in on this and lend your special brand of racist histrionics to the Olympic games. Please be quiet and let the Olympics play on,” blasted Andrea Guibord, reminding everyone that Jackson is one big fool.

Just like the Holywood crowd and the NFL, we have witnessed how fame and fortune can create monsters, monsters who are detached from reality and are so self-absorbed they end up with the mental disorder called liberalism. Reverend Jesse Jackson, like the Reverend Al Sharpton, is a carnival barker selling racism to the masses. These so-called reverends stir it up, even though the civil rights movement took place over 50 years ago.

Shani Davis is what happens after eight years of Barack Obama, who spit on Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy by race-baiting the useful idiots and convincing them racism was still rampant in America. Obama fueled the racial divide to levels we had not seen since the 1960’s.

It’s time these losers who play the race card know that we in America aren’t buying it. Black Lives Matter is a delusional movement, and all they have accomplished is the creation of idiots like Shani Davis who then get backed by hucksters like Reverend Al and Reverend Jesse Jackson. Americans are sick and tired of everything being labeled racist, and we aren’t afraid to call out these losers anymore.
