"Should the U.S. be banned from The Olympics?"
Should the U.S. be banned from The Olympics?
[Most DUmmies will answer that in the affirmative.]
Let's criticize the US war criminals first, whose horrific crimes dwarf those of the Chinese. After we assign blame and punish the criminals responsible for Iraq, the Vietnam War, countless US atrocities in South and Central America etc., we can discuss wrongdoing by the Chinese government, which pales in comparison. Maybe the U.S. should be banned from the Olympics for War Crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan?
[Ranted DUmmie Orwellian_Ghost who tossed all rationality down the Memory Hole. And now to hear from his DUmmie cheerleaders...]
yes. We have lost any moral authority to criticize any other country for their crimes against humanity.
[Replied DUmmie Horse with no Name who should be renamed Loon with no Brain.]
Not sure if we should be banned, but there should certainly be protests against us when we land in Beijing. Unless a democrat in November changes our foreign policy we shouldn't be awarded the Chicago olympics in 2016.
[Only a Democrat elected in November can mitigate our "crimes."]
Sweden - Vikings, they're out
[I can forgive Sweden for their Viking raids but not for assaulting our ears with ABBA nor for insulting our sensibilities with the Absolut ad showing most of the Western USA as part of Mexico.]
I rather that the Olympics was banned from the US. Olympics is not the same what it use to be.
[Yeah, the athletes don't compete nekkid like they used to back in the good ol' days.]
The poster probably thinks Russia under Stalin was less brutal than the US as well
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
The US has some black spots on its history but to even try to make us equivalent to Russia or China shows a shocking ignorance of history.
[You're still here? I guess the tombstoning process is in a slow mode today.]
I call bullshit on that. The U.S.A. and Capitalism have killed way more people.
[Countered a DUmmie backed up by NO facts as usual.]
Stalin's 20 million is pretty widely accepted adding the famine and the purges together along with those who died in the labor camps. 1 million is for those actually executed. I took a course where we studied the Great Leap Forward and its effects. 50 million is not an absurd guess. 20 million is conservative for Mao and that relates to just the Great Leap Forward. His political executions are extremely numerous over the years.
[May I call the caterer for your tombstoning ceremony? I think he can provide a chopped liver mold of Joe Stalin's head as the centerpiece.]
Anti-communists tend to exaggerate the numbers. Adding in famines and stuff like that just inflates the numbers. I'm not saying that these guys weren't murderers. I tend to be skeptical of the sources and their agenda.
[But not the least bit skeptical when some leftwing loon rants nonsense about America.]
In any case the greater point in this instance is not only the blatant hypocrisy by the US at even hinting towards a boycott but also the terrible fawning that is currently occuring by the so-called "progressive" comunity over Tibet when we hear nothing about Somalia, The Congo, Haiti- to name a few- which make Tibet look like a walk in the park.
[And exactly WHAT crimes are we committing in Somalia, the Congo, and Haiti? Most Americans prefer to AVOID those places like the plague.]
You have nothing to support the US as the "greatest purveyor of violence" position. The US payed in blood twice to stop European megadeath.
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
30 million+ dead female infants in China. Killed because of China's one baby policy and senseless gender discrimination. Now a demographic time bomb as whole cities of poor men, unable to find brides, spring up. 30 million men who have no prospects for love, family or happiness.
[I'm predicting a massive gayness plague will sweep over China.]
There has to be a way to protest the government war crimes
without punishing the people or the athletes.
[Remember Not One Damn Dime Day?]
Of course the UK and Canada and Australia, to name a few should be banned if we are to be consistent.
[But NOT Cuba nor North Korea if we are to be consistent with DUmmie non-logic.]
I don't believe in banning countries from the Olympics, but since the US is not a nation, but a Corporate Conglomerate, I would have no problem with it.
[May we NOW question your patriotism?]
Not Just The Olympics. The US should of course be banned from the Olympics. The Olympics are where the civilized nations of the world get together to compete. The US has shown, by its unconscienable actions in Iraq and elsehwere, that it is outside the norms of civilized nations. But the US should also lose its seat on the UN Security Council. The US should lose its vote in the UN General Assembly. The US should be kicked out of NATO. All decent nations should immediately sever their diplomatic ties with Washington. Washington is in the grips of a rogue regime that lies and wages murderous wars of occupation. It is a pariah. And it should be treated as such.
[And you'll be the first to turn into a crybaby if I dare to question your patriotism.]
