I think he has an absolute right to feel that way, but we should stop pretending that The Olympics are some righteous, holy thing. The Olympics optimizes discrimination and glorifies supremacy based on physical ability..which is often due to genetics. It's not about rights or equality and never was. It's about athletic superiority....which I'm actually shocked that this hasn't become seen as some politically incorrect, culturally toxic thing yet.
Also, let's apply George's argument to Brazil. Brazil is much more dangerous than Russia and Brazil is now evicting the poor from their homes at an accelerated rate in order to gentrify Rio and make room for parking lots and hotels. They're literally caging off the ghettos. All kinds of crazy shit is going on there. If we disqualify every nation that's up to some evil shit in some group's eyes, the Olympics would need to have a permanent home in Denmark.
No. FUck George takei. He used to be funny. Now he's an annoying price that needs to crusade something instead of just being something.
fuck the assholes that are trying to use the Olympics to push gay shit, too. May they discover that Putin is a real leader unlike their Obama
Some of the other assholes, the ones in the US government, are screaming for a boycott as well. I seriously doubt Romney would have done any better.
Face it. As long as we keep getting Shit Choice #1 and Shit Choice #2 as presidential election choices?
We'll continue the spiral down the shitter and the only people suffering for it will be US citizens.
