As I said before, as long as she isn't violent I don't care what politic views or party a Olympian follows. It shouldn't matter, this is a sports game, not an election.ReincarnatedFTP said:The Golden Dawn is basically a Neo-Nazi terrorist group, who recently got power because of the undemocratic banker coup in Greece.Helmholtz Watson said:So because she is part of a political party, she shouldn't be allowed to go to the Olympics? What the hell.....Lethos said:
Can the US start refusing to allow socialist or communist from being US Olympians as well?
Cut the politics and PC nonsense.
My feelings exactly.Berithil said:So..... An Olympic athlete who has trained most of her life for this gets kicked off the team because of a joke?
Sure, it was an unnecessary, and perhaps unsavory, joke, but seriously.... people need to grow a thicker skin.
Her dream potentially just got shattered because some people are too sensitive and politically correct. Of course, I was raised on a "sticks and stones" viewpoint, which is a big reason for my dislike of political correctness.....
And yes, I'm quite aware that I'm probably the minority here.
BNP/EDL are similarly neo-nazi groups, even if they won't admit it.
And socialists and communists already get fucked with all the time for no reason in the US.
