One day, a scorpion looking to cross a river came across a frog. The scorpion asked the frog if it could ride on its back to the safety of the opposite bank of the river. The frog was reluctant and expressed fears that the scorpion would sting the frog if he allowed that. The scorpion allayed his fears and promised he would not. Relenting, the frog allowed the scorpion to crawl onto its back and the duo commenced their journey across the wide river. Midway through, however, the scorpion stung the frog, dooming them both. Before they both died, the frog asked why the scorpion did something so foolish and evil.
“I couldn’t help it,” said the scorpion. “It’s in my nature.”
Sports Illustrated probably thought it was going to score massive woke points by selecting U.S.A. soccer champion Megan Rapinoe as its “sportsperson of the year.” Rapinoe is a neon haired social justice warrior lesbian that the hard left has come to regard as the modern model American citizen. She’s as angry at the country who raised her up as she is successful thanks to it. She leans left, hates the patriarchy, and is only too willing to use her platform as a space to browbeat and chide everyone else from dizzying altitudes on the back of her moral high horse.
