DUmmies Ashamed of US Winning in the Olympics

The summer games are underway in Beijing after no small amount of debate over whether the United States should participate due to China's human rights violations. That debate is over now, but controversy continues. Foreign journalists have gotten a first-hand taste of China's Internet restrictions, one American tourist was murdered and another injured by a Chinese madman who then killed himself, and three Americans protesting religious oppression have been detained and then ejected from the country.

However, for some DUmmies, the real controversy is how doggone good the United States is at winning medals, as you will see in this DUmmie 
THREAD titled "olympic medals - does anyone else finding it embarassing to take so many."

So let's take a break from counting Michael Phelps's gold medals to watch the DUmmies lament America's awesomeness in Bolshevik red with the comments of your humble guest narrator, Paul Heinzman, in the [brackets].

olympic medals - does anyone else finding it embarassing to take so many

[It's right up there with misspelling embarrassing.]

we walk in with a 'crowd' and then seem surprised to get so many - it would be nice if some of the other 240 counties that are smaller got some - it always seems like a gang shows up when we walk in and then so many have to say USA USA - I mean - I just find it like the 'gang' is here and we are taking over - what are your thoughts? I know republics like the gangs and bullies to take over everything so they like being king of the mountain all the time - I just feel like others should get a turn more often

[Every game should end in a tie. That way, everybody wins.]

I know I got sick of winning all of mine that's for sure.

[Olympic pizza eating?]

no. i like winning. and i like winning in olypmics. sorry.

[Even if it makes everyone else feel bad?]

...and this is why I always supported the idea of sending ONLY collegiate competitors from the U.S. to participate. We try to turn it into a celebration of U.S. dominance in the world and we are rightly resented for it. I find it hard to root for the U.S. in any olympic competition.

[May we question your patriotism now?]

Yes, the Olympics should be a celebration...    
...a celebration of good clean spirited international competition and camaraderie. Not an effort on the part of the U.S. to take advantage of its relative size and dominance in so many sports to carry off a gargantuan medal haul every four years. This could be achieved by sending collegiate athletes instead of professionals.

[We'd still win more than anyone.]

What professionals do we send besides Basketball and if you haven't noticed the NBA has been globalized with players from all over world who are playing for their home countrys. Not to mention that Basketball is just one metal. What other sports do we have pros in? Football, nope. Baseball, nope. Guess what, that it. Those are the pro sports. Take your head out of your ass.

[You win the gold medal Kewpie doll for having a brief moment of mental clarity.]

What part of "collegiate athletes" do you not understand, Sidney?
[Since Sidney is probably a professional college student, my money's on the "athlete" part.]

And what kind of belligerent jackass gets worked up over a topic like this? 

[Just about any DUmmie.]

The American empire is dying in case you hadn't noticed, genius. Don't guess that matters though -- as long as we can stomp Panama in thumb wrestling and pull down the gold. USA NUMBER ONE!!!! YEAH!!!!!!!

[It's "USA! USA! USA!"]

The young pros in the soccer tournament are often far better than the young men we can send, for example.

[Imagine the outcry when the United States finally wins a World Cup.]

I guess that is the part I feel - it isn't just a competition of athletes but the attitude of dominance - I do root for the people and yes I like to see how someone acts when they win - some are more gracious than others - I am not saying we should run slower, etc as someone else mentioned but we seem to have the funds to send more - some of these countries have good athletes but not the training facilities or opportunities - doing their best is nice - but it is that American arrogance - I remember when I traveled in europe I stayed away from some Americans because it was embarrassing the way they acted - that holier than thou stuff - I find that same thing with republics - they act like they are holy and great and yet so many are in the closet or infidelity but you would think the dems were the only ones when in actuality - those most against something are usually guilty - 

[If there were a writing competition in the Twit Olympics, you'd take the gold.]

In 1980 we won zero

[Not in the Summer, but in the winter there was one that ended in the chant "USA! USA! USA!" that was particularly displeasing to Will Pitt.]

Jimmy Carter made them wear sweaters to save energy and they were slowed down by it!


I don't know why any American whould be surprised - it's a big sports-obsessed country that gives out university scholarships just for being good at a sport.

[Yes, these kids who bring millions of dollars in revenue to universities should get nothing and like it.]

That is literally the stupidest f*cking thing I've read all day, and there are about 600 Edwards threads competing for that title.

[That's saying a lot considering this is DU.]

This isn't the Kumbayalympics.

[It's the DUmmie FUnnies.]

Hell, let's get rid of the contest and everyone can get a gold medal!

[Everybody gets a medal!]

But what would we call it?
Special Olympics is already taken....

[We'll call it the Oprahlympics.]

If there was ever a post that validates the RW stereotype of liberals, this is it

[And we have noticed.]

Is there any representation of this country which doesn't embarrass you?

[Just Democratic Underground.]

It's a sad and lonely being a DUmmie, everyone lies to you, tricks you, embarasses you or lets you down---Bush, Cheney, Rove, Hillary, Edwards, Obama, stupid American voters and now a gang of American athletes bullying small Third World nations...

...the same athletes who picked on the DUmmies in the schoolyard

These Dummies begrudge anyone anything they don't have. These athletes have trained years and years. They're very disciplined, working hard for these goals. The dummies don't understand work and discipline. They can't stand it when anyone works hard and achieves their dreams. They are very envious when people work hard at their job, too, and achieve success. They are just so jealous. All they have to show in their lives are empty pizza boxes stacked at the door of their mommy's basement. It must really suck to be a dummie.

That's ugly even by DUmmie standards.

At least a few of the idiots tried to set them straight.

I shouldn't be surprised by this. Its just SO typical.

Do these morons realize what China does to its athletes and how they go about selecting and training them? They're literally torn from their families and sequestered for YEARS in training facilities. If they fail, they're finally sent back with NOTHING. If they succeed then the preasure is even greater. They are driven virtually to the breaking point.

In the meantime, the big bad American group is NOT funded by the govt or controlled by the govt in any way. Its made up of private individuals and financed by private money.

We do have a large contingent but so do other LARGE countries like China, Russia etc.

These DU'ers will NEVER miss an opportunity to denegrate their OWN country and YES I do question their patriotisim. Well I take that back, I don't question it. I know they have NONE!

It's all about their collectivist ideals. Praise losers so they don't "suffer from low self-esteem" and scorn winners for embarrassing the "less gifted."

"It just isn't fair that greedy people make so much money." Talent, ambition, and hard work are anathema to these pitiful creatures.

From Federalist 10 ( )by James Madison:

The diversity in the faculties of men, from which the rights of property originate, is not less an insuperable obstacle to a uniformity of interests. The protection of these faculties is the first object of government.

In other words, diversity of natural talent (faculties) will ever be cause for jealousies, but government must preserve that diversity rather than strive for uniformity (e.g., "redistribution of wealth").

Wow...I actually had a hard time understanding this cretin. Does he know that 'republic' is a word with a meaning that is not "member of an American Political Party?

I thought, honestly he was against "republics"!

In my defense, I suppose that's not altogether out of the question considering he's a DUmmie.

"The young pros in the soccer tournament are often far better than the young men we can send, for example."

And the young pros we send to Japan to play baseball are often far better than the Japanese, so what's your point, other than to belittle the hard word and determination of American athletes?

This is just projection. You don't like the fact that you're lousy as sports so you don't like to play them and, because you're ashamed of this, you need to dismiss those people around you who are good at something you suck at. I suggest you get out and play a real sport sometimes because I doubt that Grand Theft Auto will EVER be an Olympic sport.

In other words, stop whining, get off your lazy ass, and do something physically HARD for once in your life. Even if you're not that good at physical sports, the rewards can be great if you only try.
