KNOXVILLE, TN --- Knoxville physician Josh Gapp, MD, is calling for a public apology from Race Imboden, Team USA Fencing member and gold medalist who kneeled during the medal ceremony at the Pan-Am Games this week.

“It is unforgivable when athletes disrespect our flag and our country when they have the privilege of representing America on an international stage. I’m publicly calling on Mr. Imboden to apologize to our great country or voluntarily resign from Team USA Fencing,” said Gapp.

Imboden’s actions were in violation of the terms established by the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee, which forbids political demonstrations.

“Colin Kaepernick has infected America’s next generation of athletes like Race Imboden with the idea that it’s cool and acceptable to disrespect our flag and all it stands for just to score points with the politically correct crowd.”

As a pathologist trained to spot cancer, Dr. Josh Gapp has watched the cancer of political correctness growing in America. Gapp decided enough was enough when Nike caved to politically correct pressure from failed athlete Colin Kaepernick and pulled its shoes featuring the Betsy Ross flag. He announced his run for U.S. Senate in Tennessee to be a champion for liberty and fight the cancer of political correctness.
