American conservatives are celebrating Team USA's 1-0 loss to rival Canada in the semifinal round of the women's Olympic soccer tournament.
I read this article and it got me thinking about this. Its a conservative reaction but it could work for liberals as well. For example when the country is being run by someone like Trump.
I cant imagine wanting my country or countrymen to fail. But we are a small nation and generally have to seek compensation in results other than an outright victory.
But rejoicing in a defeat suggests that some people identify more with their politics than they do with their country.
Are these people just outliers or is this a general feeling ? Does this make you less of an American ?
