#2647291 Olympian Disgrace

Olympian Disgrace
 
by Stephen Lendman
 
Washington pressured the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and International Olympic Committee (IOC) to ban all Russian athletes from participating in Rio 2016 - solely for political reasons, nothing else, a reprehensible example of imperial arrogance.
 
WADA bowed and scraped. Its commission member Canadian law professor Richard McLaren disgraced him, preparing a trumped up report, baselessly claiming systemic doping of Russian athletes “beyond a reasonable doubt,” without providing credible evidence proving it.
 
IOC president Thomas Bach wouldn’t go along. Washington’s scheme fell short. Russia’s entire track and field team, its Paralympians and other athletes were unfairly banned from competition because of doping accusations against a few team members - a scandalous political stunt.
 
Nearly 300 other Russian athletes were cleared to participate, in Rio competing for gold, silver and bronze medals.
 
Washington never ceases to find ways to reach new lows, its imperial mindset even corrupting Olympism, making it more a political event than a sporting one.
 
I’m boycotting the games. I refuse to watch any of the competition. I’m not sure what’s sport at its best or rigged events because of Russian athletes barred from participating solely for representing the wrong country in the eyes of US policymakers.
 
I urge everyone to tune out. The whole sordid business warrants widespread boycott. Let sponsors anting up millions of dollars for commercial air time take the hindmost.
 
Olympic Games came a long way from their ancient Greek origin and more modern late 19th century version to today’s corrupted system.
 
It’s scandalous, prioritizing profiteering, exploitation, sticking taxpayers with huge expenses, harming the poor, other disenfranchised groups and affected communities, along with letting politicization override sport.
 
The best of what it should be in Rio is absent, sham and spectacle not worth watching replacing it.

It's a curious thing to me that you hate democracy but continue to live in a democratic society.

 

US is a republic, not a democracy.   We have representative government, not popular vote by lynch mob.

 

Generally, a republic works as long as its representatives come from ordinary citizens rather than career politicians who have no other accomplishments in life other than running for office.   When an elite political class captures the government, you end up with a deep state that is sufficiently dangerous to assassinate their opponents.

Interesting thought (to me at least):

 

1.   In the Soviet era, history books would have been written by Jews.

2.   Jews would not want to admit mass murder.

3.   Soviet history books would, therefore, paint a rosy picture of the USSR without the details about the secret police and assassinations.

 

For similar reasons, US history books suffer the same fate.
