The public has been going gaga over U.S. Olympic wrestler Tamyra Mensah-Stock, and for good reason.
Unlike anti-American bellyachers Megan Rapinoe and Gwen Berry, Mensah-Stock loves America and is grateful for the opportunities it’s afforded her.
Moreover, unlike Rapinoe and Berry, both of whom suffered stinging defeats in this year’s Olympics, she’s a gold medal-wearing winner and not a pouting loser.
On Tuesday, Mensah-Stock, a Houston native, became the first black woman in history to win gold representing the United States in wrestling by defeating Nigeria’s Blessing Oborududu.
Watch the final moments of the match below:

While an amazing accomplishment, this victory wasn’t what made the public go gaga over her. It’s how she responded afterward.
With an American flag proudly wrapped around her, Mensah-Stock expressed to the entire world how much she loves this country.
“I love representing the U.S.! I freaking love living there! I love it! And I’m so happy that I get to represent U.S.A.!” she hollered with pride.

Her words, a stark contrast to the anti-American rhetoric of Rapinoe and Berry, made her an instant sensation.
David Hookstead of The Daily Caller: “This is what real patriotism looks like. LeBron James and Colin Kaepernick could learn a lesson from her.”
Todd Starnes of Fox News: “What a great American patriot and athlete!! God bless America and Tamyra Mensah-Stock!”
Megyn Kelly: “God bless @MensahTamStock for this much needed dose of patriotism & joy and congratulations on making history!!!! You are inspiring!!!”
Benny Johnson of Newsmax: “This is a winner. This is how you represent your country. Take notes.”
Kirstie Alley: “There’s that Olympic spirit!! Congratulations Tamara Mensah-Stock on the GOLD! And THANK YOU for representing our country with such exuberance and grace.”

Meanwhile, the wider public took aim at Rapinoe and Berry to mock them over their stinging defeats and remind them what real patriotism looks like.

@MzBerryThrows Glad to see there are still some Olympians who love this country and not ashamed to say it. Take that!

Both Rapinoe and Berry got knocked the hell out at the Olympics.
On Monday, Canada defeated the U.S. women’s national soccer team and its team captain, Rapinoe.
The team’s defeat provoked massive celebration among Americans fed up with the team’s obnoxiousness and anti-Americanism.
Wow. The women’s soccer team really blew it AGAIN. Losing to Canada ? Probably SORE KNEES from all their KNEELING. I love it when America wins the Gold—but the “bronze” lining here is we won’t see as much of the purple hair chick MEG @mPinoe during the “off season” pic.twitter.com/DNJdnFMxMl

I support watching Megan Rapinoe lose.
They kneeled. They shouldn’t represent America.
— Nick Adams (@NickAdamsinUSA) August 2, 2021
This makes me very happy! That team is NOT for the USA! They need to grow up and decide where their loyalty is. Maybe Rapinoe could move!

A day later, Berry suffered a “crushing” defeat, striking out without even earning a single medal.
“Berry recorded a 71.35 in the hammer throw but finished far from the podium. She finished in 11th out of 12 competitors. Poland’s Anita Wlodarczyk won the gold medal and Malwina Kopron won the bronze medal. China’s Wang Zheng won the silver,” Fox News reported.
The irony is that she reportedly performed a “protest” right before she got wiped out.
“Gwen Berry raised a fist twice before the hammer thrower started her competition at the Tokyo Olympics on Tuesday night,” according to Fox News.
Maybe Gwen Berry threw out her shoulder with that fist thingy. Her throw was 7+ meters short of Gold…
