Meb Kefligizhi’s improbable victory today at the Boston Marathon, the first captured by an American since 1983, was further proof that Massachusetts is the preferred state of whatever God it is you believe in. Boston is clearly the place where greatness comes to be put on center stage. Name another city where two terrorists blows up a marathon and the next year 10,000 more people sign up to run that same marathon, AND an American wins the race for the first time in 31 years. You can’t do it. It just doesn’t exist anywhere but here.
So Meb’s win is something we can all get behind then right? Right??? Well, as long as the “true” defenders of America are still running the comments section of Fox News Facebook page. Oh wait, you mean idiots are complaining that Meb isn’t really an “American?” Yea, this seems like something that was unfortunately bound to happen. Check out what America’s finest had to say about it:
Close your eyes and imagine what Ronald Richey ^^^ looks like. Now open them. Did you imagine this……
Oh you did? Well, good for you. Now imagine what part of the country he’s from, and what his interests include. Did you picture this……
Alabama and NASCAR? What are the odds??? Ronnie wasn’t the only one that needed to explain to all of us what a REAL American is…..
Ummmm Diane, the root of his name is Eritrean. Because he was born there before he moved here. Just like every white person in this country. Ya see, back before our ancestors all came here looking for a better life, this continent was inhabited by magical people with “red” skin. They’re kind of like Mexicans without green cards, and now they take all your money at Mohegan Sun. But when in doubt, just blame Obama!!!
Or check out Jerrad Coy’s obviously brilliant logic….
For the record, Jerrad Coy is single. I’m 110% certain he’s looked into the Romanian mail order bride option though, and is highly considering it. Pretty sure if he won the Boston Marathon, they wouldn’t be saying “that American who is married to a Romanian girl won.” They’d be saying “that loud mouthed asshat won.”
Maybe he’s right though. America sure is weak. That explains why our Navy is only as big as the next 12 biggest countries in the world combined. It explains how we have the resources to police the world. And it’s all Meb Keflegzhi’s fault!! Well, that and his Romanian mail order bride who won’t stop nagging him to be let out of her cage.
And Jerrad knows a thing or two about the military. Even check out his background…
So yea, apparently the military has a Community College for their rejects too. Now, back to Obama bashing!!!
Too far Jeffery Coxwell. The internet is only for covert references to racism. You went full on racist. Bad look man. Should’ve just stuck to the Obama Kenyan birth certificate defense.
Then there was “K Denese Runnels” who WON the internet today….
An Eritrean guy who moved to the United States and claimed to be an American citizen? That’s liberal hogwash!!! That would be like boatloads of Europeans jumping on boats and coming to this country with weird names and no money in their pockets!!! Oh wait…
Luckily FIR all of us, K Denese has done so much fir are cuntry. Guess where she’s from?
Yea K Denese, the fact that your family and friends have fought for this country is what makes YOU patriotic. They were over in the Middle East risking their lives in defense of democracy, and you were taking care of the Facebook posts here at home. Same exact thing. But do you think the reason this country is in the shape it’s in might be because of all the wars we’ve spent billions of dollars on and lost? No, that can’t be it. Murica.
Yea you haters, she’s being politically correct. She’s just a “raciest against ALL people who do not do as they supposed to do.” There’s nothing politically incorrect about that statement at all. Besides, she could give a “rats butt if he is an American or American citizen,” which is exactly why she’s going to such lengths to explain to all of us that he’s not a real American.
As for her friends, they apparently ate the countries they came from? Yea, sorry K Denese, there’s just no way you have a friend whose great grandparents weren’t born in the United States. Luckily for us she closes her brilliant statement by reminding us that she believes in God and America. Therefore everything she said is justified.
You see all these brilliant comments above? This is why Republicans can’t have nice things. The irony of these people is that without their idiocy, the democrats wouldn’t really have a platform to run on. It is largely because of them that Obama is a two term President. So yea, nice going guys.
Either way, Meb was freaking phenomenal today. Took the race out in Wellesley and dusted EVERYONE in the Newton Hills. Even though the last five miles into Boston are downhill, it literally means nothing at all. Up or down, every single step is painful from that point on. You could see it in his eyes as he continued to look back in the final mile. You could see how hard every stride was for him. Watching those two guys close in on him like hyenas made me root for Meb like no runner I ever have before. I could only imagine what was going through his mind. Must’ve felt like standing next to Chris Christie as you both went for the final piece of pizza. It seemed like there was no way he could win.
But he just kept on trucking because he wanted it more. Our feelings around here about the phrase “Boston Strong” are well documented. But in this case, it was earned. Meb was Boston Strong today, and he represented the spirit of not only Boston, but of the greatest country in the history of the world: The United States of America. You try to blow us up, we remind you that we still kick ass. Murica!!!
