Neocons, You Got Your Wish

October 2, 2009

Feature, Odds and Ends

All week long we’ve heard the repiglican, neocon, teabagging, birther and bat-shit crazy factions of American society going on about how President Obama shouldn’t be pitching America to host the Olympic games. And just a few minutes ago, they got their wish.

Chicago was eliminated from consideration to host the 2016 Summer games. Go ahead, have your laugh. OK, you finished? Good. Now let’s take a look at how you’ll want to play the rest of this out.

Your next talking point will be “Obama couldn’t even bring the Olympics here, which just proves he can’t run the country”, or something along that line. You’re so ridiculously transparent, we can see it coming a mile away. You’ll ridicule President Obama for something you didn’t even want in the first place. But while you’re busy proudly waving your hypocrisy, let’s examine a couple of possible reasons why America was rejected.

We’ll begin with the way you sore losers have behaved since the election last year. You’ve done nothing but spew bigotry. You’ve had your sheets and hoods on since November, and the world has taken notice. Olympics are a global event. Many countries have contingencies made up of people, who share the same African heritage as our President. The Olympics committee would never send citizen athletes into a country, where hate-filled rhetoric runs rampant.

Simply put, when the world sees the number of death threats being levied against one American citizen, based solely on their race, the risk of putting others into that same country is too great.

But your hatred doesn’t just end with black people. You’ve made it clear how much you hate anyone who isn’t a white, Christian American. You’ve persisted in spouting that President Obama is a secret Muslim, and you hate Muslims. You go on lynch mobs looking for Mexicans you believe are here illegally. You call the French “faggots” because they don’t want to kill the same people you do. The Canadians are “pussies”, all of the Germans are “Nazis” (just like Obama, right?), and all of the Chinese are “commies.” Yeah, that’s some welcome mat you’ve put on America’s doorstep. How proud you must be.

And then there’s all of the shootings. Disaffected white guys go around murdering people because they’re at a Jewish museum, or they’re at a Democratic state headquarters, or they’re in a “liberal” church, or they call police to their house and start shooting it up because a black man was elected President. And let’s not forget what happened the last time America hosted a Summer Olympics. Eric Rudolph set off a bomb at the Olympic park in Atlanta, because he didn’t like abortion or the “homosexual agenda.”

The founder of the modern Olympic games, Pierre de Coubertin, stated the 5 rings on the Olympic symbol “represent the five parts of the world which now are won over to Olympism and willing to accept healthy competition.” But the only “healthy competition” the bigots of America want to participate in, is how badly they can slander or murder anyone non-white, non-Christian and non-American.

The debt a host-city incurs, and the grotesque commercialization of the Olympic games is an entirely different rant. Frankly, I don’t watch much of the games because they have turned into a boondoggle for the corporations, rather than encouraging amateur athletes to strive for their personal best. As of the time I an writing this, the city who won the honor to host the 2016 Summer games has yet to be announced, but I wish them luck.

In so far as America being the first country kicked out of contention, it’s the clearest example yet of the world’s rejection of your behavior. For the last 8 years, the world watched as President Bush spouted hateful resentment at large segments of the world’s population. For the last 10 months, the world has watched the Bush followers take that hate to a level not openly seen here since the days of segregation. The world is not amused by your behavior – only you are.

So it looks like you’ll have to get your passport, and buy a very expensive plane ticket, if you’d like to go wave your American flag in people’s faces while chanting “USA! USA! USA!” at the 2016 Olympic games. Here’s a little advisory – You WILL have to take your sheet and hood off while going through airport security. How proud you must be.

    Great piece, Sue. I don’t think most Americans ever give it a thought that the entire world is watching everything we do in this country…every lie told by the hate-talkers going unchallenged, every tea party, every rant on how Obama might be a foreigner, illegally sitting as President, the insanity of the Sarah Palins and Michelle Bachmanns, the corporate-driven daily dogma being accepted as “news”, the brittle racism that smothers all of us, still, and comes out in various ways, one being “I WANT MY COUNTRY BACK!” Back from whom? The African Moslem terrorist that lied to us and somehow managed to get elected so he could put his Marxist boot on the throats of White America?

    Other countries not only learn who we are by what they see and hear, but, unlike the American press, they actually report what they find in newspapers, online and tv news, and what they report is not pretty. How could it be?

    Look around and listen to what this country has sunk to. Not exactly sure how you would define America right now as a nation, considering the apparent willingness of most Americans to just sit back and let all the stupidness continue to define who we are, but think about it for a minute. If you were one of those assessing whether or not to bring the 2016 Olympics to Chicago, what would your decision have been?

    Thanks, Sophie. Very well said yourself, too.

    PS – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil will host the 2016 Summer Olympic games.

    Great job sis! I wonder if the Retardicans will blame Obama for not doing enough? Their excuse before vying for the Olympics?

    01) We have big fish to fry, and the Olympic is NOT so important, therefore, it should not be on the list of priorities

    When they realize that they fucked up:

    01) Obama did not do enough to attract the Olympics, therefore, no income from people from around the world.

    I see their M.O. and it stinks like dogshit
