The USA Fencing Mask Is Awesome And Intimidating, And Awesome


“Oh, so you want to wave a pointy sword in my face? Be careful. I’M AMERICA.”

Badass. I wish they forced every athlete to wear these things. Ping pong just finished up on NBC Sports Network, and American player Timothy Wang got crushed, four games to zip. Clearly his North Korean opponent wasn’t adequately intimidated. SHOULD HAVE BROUGHT OUT THE MASK.

Seriously though, there’s no greater patriotic salute than wearing America on your face.

Clearly, the next step is naked athletes painted in red, white and blue to replace uniforms. We know American volleyballers wouldn’t have a problem.

    The amount of contempt I have for frivolous and empty flag-wearing, chest-pounding fake patriotism is equal to the amount of awesomitude I feel for actual, America-can-do-something-right, let’s stand for something, you’re going down because it’s a game not a drone strike, sincere love of country.  Great mask.

    Indeed.

    Repulsive, chauvinist, borderline fascist.

    Or maybe s/he’s just making a joke. Lighten up, douchebag.

  • Lacoby

     I agree.

  • Lacoby

     What’s the joke?

  • Rod Tank

    Yeah, and Ines Boubakri won. Obviously, she wasn’t that much impressed by the stars-and-stripes-mask…

    The masks are cool, but no one will be intimidated until we start to win fencing. To do so, it would take some upport from fans in the US.

    Want to see a “cool” mask, try Kabuki. This repulsive, infantile disorder is the perfect “American Exceptionalist” militarist wannabe fantastique, disgusting and infantile. Should be disallowed by officials.
