Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, December 06, 2017

Russia's Olympic team has been barred from the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. The country's government officials are forbidden to attend, its flag will not be displayed at the opening ceremony and its anthem will not sound. Any athletes from Russia who receive special dispensation to compete will do so as individuals wearing a neutral uniform, and the official record books will forever show that Russia won zero medals.

Putin says it didn't happen so I'm sure the Conservatives will trust him.

Then we must drown or burn him. If he lives, he's a witch, if he dies, he's innocent. Everyone wins.

Putin will hold his own "Olympics" and pressure as many nations as he can to desert the Olympics and attend his new "Olympics."
He'll have quite a few nations willing to do that I think. China? Hmmmm? Olympic committee may have bitten off more than they can chew.

It's a shame the games have to politicized.

I want to see the best athletes in the world, not just parts people like.

The games are a political construct created by progressives to bring the nations of the world together in the spirit of friendship and celebration of human achievement.

To say it's a shame the games have to be politicized is like saying it's a shame water is so wet.

You'll recall Russia invaded Ukraine after they hosted the Winter Games in Sochi. What a shame, right?

The guy who founded the games won a gold medal. The sport was literature. Other sports included architecture, music, painting, and sculpture. Those were dumped after 1948.

The corruption of the IOC really started to explode in the 80s with the pivot to many pillars of income, sourced globally.

The corruption in the IOC is s reflection of the corruption entrenched in most of the countries, often poor and brown, that participate in the Olympics.

Same with FIFA.

But yes it absolutely walks in step with globalization and the corruption that makes globalization worth doing in the first place.

Is saying saying "no steriods" political now?

They didn't say "no trump enablers". They said "no cheaters."

It just happens that the country with the ethics to support trump is the same country with the ethics to put all their athletes on roids. Go figure.

They should bring back the art competitions, but make drugs mandatory.

But...but rightwingers were all telling us how wonderful and honorable Putin was. How can this be?

The should just allow any drugs or whatever ... that would be far more entertaining. It would also probably help advance medical discoveries.

Funny you should mention that. Nikki Haley is dropping hints saying it's an "open question" as of 9 hours ago. North Korea is pinned as the culprit given the currently high tensions.
