Triple jumper Voula Papachristou was expelled from Greece's Olympic team Wednesday for her comments on Twitter mocking African immigrants and expressing support for a far-right party. The Hellenic Olympic Committee said Wednesday that Papachristou is "placed outside the Olympic team for statements contrary to the values and ideas of the Olympic movement."I absolutely loathe the Olympics. It's a corrupt, fraudulent and grotesque celebration of globalism. The idea that Hitler and the Chinese Communists were perfectly acceptable to "the values and ideas of the Olympic movement" but free speech and democracy are not should tell you all that you need to know about the true spirit of the Olympics. Banning an athlete for the "crime" of being a nationalist who doesn't favor the flooding of her country with foreign criminals is far more troublesome than any race-related comments she may have made. The irony here, given the original rules of the games, is that being a paid professional no longer bars an athlete, but being an open nationalist does.
This is exactly the same totalitarian progressivism that has led to the denial of building permits to companies that do not exhibit "Chicago values". Strange, isn't it, how "Chicago values" and "the values and ideas of the Olympic movement" just happen to be exactly the same.
It is in part because of this grotesque political correctness, which is now creeping into European football, that I have no plans to watch the Olympics, except of course in the event that the rumored false flag operation takes place. That might actually be entertaining, certainly more so than the ghastly North Koreanesque opening and closing ceremonies.
