‘Love it’: George Foreman explains why he is ‘not ashamed’ to say he loves America

Retired boxer George Foreman made headlines more than half a century ago when he held up an American flag upon winning the gold medal at the 1968 Olympic games.

In recent remarks, he made it clear that his love for the nation has not changed — and he pushed back against those who have a problem with his patriotism.

“I love the flag”

“For about 54 years, people have [asked] me not to keep saying ‘I love America,'” Foreman tweeted on Independence Day, according to The Daily Wire. “Well I do and I’m not ashamed. Don’t leave it; Love it. Happy 4th of July.”

Of course, this was just the latest in his provocative statements regarding national pride. In 2017, he offered a simple response to former NFL quarterback and activist Colin Kaepernick.

“The greatest day of my life was when I put on my colors, representing the United States in the Olympics,” Foreman said at the time, as The Daily Wire reported. “I love the United States. I love the flag. But there are a lot of people who haven’t found that reason. They don’t strive. They haven’t been brought up with people who were patriotic to even point them in the right direction.”

His words stand in sharp contrast to the actions and comments of Olympic hammer thrower Gwen Berry after a third-place finish in trials last month.

As The Star-Spangled Banner played, she turned her back. According to Fox News, the activist athlete later tweeted: “The anthem doesn’t speak for me. It never has.”

“Brainwashed to ignore our history”

Democratic politicians have echoed the same type of disdain toward their own country in recent days. U.S. Rep. Cori Bish (D-MO), for example, rang in Independence Day with a tweet expressing severe criticism for the holiday.

“When they say that the 4th of July is about American freedom, remember this: the freedom they’re referring to is for white people,” the freshman lawmaker wrote. “This land is stolen land and Black people still aren’t free.”

Although she did not elaborate on the ways Black Americans are not free, her rhetoric nevertheless resonated with a number of far-left figures.

For his part, Democratic congressional candidate Shahid Buttar of California weighed in with a direct response to Bush’s tweet.

“It’s almost as if our entire country has been brainwashed to ignore our history — and how its worst elements continue today — despite our self-congratulatory rhetoric,” he wrote.

  9. I REALLY wish that people would comment on the story, not brag about making money on the Internet! Can’t you moderate this site???

    1. Exactly – I’ve asked them this exact same thing, and guess what they replied? Nothing!!!
      I guess they don’t don’t want to respond when they don’t have an answer. Or possibly they don’t moderate the site? I would venture to guess it’s the first that I that listed.

  10. People who do not Love or appreciate our
    GREAT country need to go live in Venezuela or
    Better yet China and see how they like living
    there, for this IS the GREATEST Nation under
    GOD, these people just don’t have brains enough to really get it!! But once they have a taste of the new suffering, then they will finally
    wake up and finally get it!

  11. You don’t need to go much further than listening to Leo Terrell to understand what’s going on with the Democratic Party and understanding the plight of Black Americans. Leo is a prolific American Civil Rights Attorney and radio talk show host in California. Leo was an ardent Democrat his entire life until recently. Leo states he escaped the Democratic Party “asylum” and that he will not be going back. Asked why he left the Democratic Party, Leo replied, “Because Joe Biden, imperial wizard , said if you don’t vote for me, then you ain’t black”. When asked who are the racist, Leo responded they are the people on the “left”. Leo summoned up a recent interview by stating that the Democrats just “HATE”, when they don’t have an argument they’ll just make up an argument.
    When asked how he will vote going forward, Leo stated “My vote depends upon one thing, who will fight for every American in this country. Leo is now campaigning and voted Republican for the first time ever.

  12. The Democrats do not like black people like Foreman, who are wise to their BS! The Dems have long been the party of slavery, and they still feel that they own the blacks! To the Dems, Foreman is one who escaped the plantation, and they can’t stand it! The Dems are phonies and communists! This country would be so much better off without any Democrats at all!
