The NFL anthem kneelers disgraced their country and sport.
Their choice to disrespect their flag, police force, and military showed they have no class.
And one 17-year-old Olympic snowboarder just outclassed the entire NFL.
Chloe Kim is an American snowboarder, and the daughter of a South Korean immigrant.
During the Winter Olympics in South Korea, Kim won a gold metal.
Immediately after winning the metal, it wasn’t Chloe Kim who gained everyone’s attention, it was her father, Jong Jin Kim, who was proudly boasting after the event, and pointed at his chest saying “American dream.”
And when being interviewed by reporters, Chloe Kim honored her father, and country, by lauding the opportunities they have had compared to his parents’ home country, stating:
“Leaving your life behind and chasing this dream because your kid is passionate about this sport. I think today I did it for my family and I am so grateful to them.”
As reported by Breitbart:
“American snowboarder Chloe Kim, won gold Monday on Tuesday in the Winter Olympic games in PyeongChang, South Korea. However, upon hearing her father’s proud boast after the event, one could see that this victory was a family affair.
In front of a group of reporters, Kim’s father, Kim Jong-jin, pointed to his chest and said: “American dream.” Then he began to cheer wildly and embrace the full moment of his daughter’s victory.
However, Kim referring to his daughter as his “American Dream,” is not necessarily a new thing, nor is it simply because his daughter won. He called his daughter his American Dream on the Today show, a day prior to Chloe’s gold medal win.
The family aspect of the win, was shared by Chloe herself, as she told reporters after the event that she “did it for my family.”
My dad has definitely sacrificed a lot for me and I don’t know if I could do it, if I was in his shoes,” the 17-year-old told Reuters. “Leaving your life behind and chasing this dream because your kid is passionate about this sport. I think today I did it for my family and I am so grateful to them.””
Not only did she acknowledge the great responsibilities she has had in the United States, but when she won she showed her immediate allegiance and love for her country.
In a tweet posted on her account, Kim had a picture of her waving an American flag immediately after winning her gold medal.
I hate crying but I’ll give myself a pass for this one. Thank you everyone for the love! Stoked to bring home the gold pic.twitter.com/vxApf1lxbI

Maybe the NFL kneelers could learn a thing or two from Chloe Kim on how to honor their country.
Do you think kids should have more role models like Chloe Kim, who love America, instead of NFL players?
