Conservative pundit Ann Coulter Fut 14 Coins is obviously not a fan of soccer. While the rest of the country is celebrating Team USA’s advancing to the next round of the FIFA 2014 World Cup, Coulter is calling this growing interest in the world’s most popular sport a sign of “moral decay.
Despite losing the match to Germany yesterday, Team USA advanced to the Round of 16 in Brazil, prompting more Americans to get hooked on soccer because of national pride in the team’s success. Coulter said the sport is destroying the United States of America.
Coulter wrote her opinion Wednesday in a syndicated column: “America’s Favorite National Pastime: Hating Soccer.” She started by describing how she had held herself back from writing about soccer so she would not offend anyone. She then laid out her nine-point explanation of how soccer can be a sign of moral decay. In that column, she argues that Americans are watching the game only because of the 1965 immigration law Sen. Ted Kennedy championed. Her musings about the popular sport sum up everything that, according to her, is wrong with modern America.
The 52-year-old journalist also said soccer is not a real sport, challenging the sport’s mechanics and system of play. She said true sports require individual achievement and either major injury or personal humiliation. According to her, soccer is just a game where everyone runs up and down the field, the ball accidentally goes in every once in a while, and everyone celebrates. It’s a liberal sport, she added, where there are no standouts and no MVPs.
