Fox News Removes Exec´s "Darker,
Gayer" Olympics Column After Uproar

Hollywood Reporter, by Jeremy Barr

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/9/2018 6:12:39 PM

Fox News has removed an online column by executive vp and executive editor John Moody following intense criticism online and from gay rights activists, who roundly attacked the piece. "John Moody’s column does not reflect the views or values of FOX News and has been removed," the network said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter on Friday afternoon. Objecting to an effort to attract more diverse U.S. Olympians for the Winter games, Moody had written on Wednesday: "Unless it’s changed overnight, the motto of the Olympics, since 1894, has been ´Faster, Higher, Stronger.´ It appears the U.S. Olympic Committee

Comments:
What a bunch of cowards. It really is disgusting how quickly someone will react if there are objections from some leftist group. Everything stated in Moody´s original article is accurate. I don´t remember seeing articles removed if a conservative group complains, which seldom happens anyway. It´s only those on the left who are ALWAYS offended about something and demand removal. It´s really tiresome how everyone caves to their ridiculous demands. What happened to free speech? Oh that´s right......

He was right, but the “special interests” who dare not be named were ready to pounce.

It’s an athletic contest - a number of athletic contests. The best athletes should be selected with no attention to their ethnicity, skin color or gender choice.*

*One exception that I can think of: Men should not be able to say they are women so that they can compete against women.

You may think of others.

The team leader bragged about sending this dark, gay & different team.
Sadly this team lacks the strength, the discipline and the excellence to bag gold.
Maybe they will get special participation trophies from the US Olympic org.
Maybe even the cover of Wheaties.

How ridiculous. Anyone who actually read what he wrote would know the media was misquoting him. Too bad Fox News hasn´t learned from Trump how to stand up to this nonsense.

Free speech anymore, is like when we were 6 years old hiding under the bed practicing our swear words in private, lest Mom find out. But only for conservatives.

fta "... Fox News should open their site for diverse athletes to share their own personal stories and perspectives.” Nobody cares about their "personal stories" or their "perspectives", the only thing anyone cares about is did you win or did you lose? Nothing else matters at this level.

I think it has already started, but I believe in the past, perhaps on a non-international level. Men who have transformed into women, have sought participation in women´s golf, track and field, tennis and other sports. Next, I believe that pairs figure skating and ice dancing will start allowing to men to perform together , which would clearly out rank women and men pair skaters.

The only possible reason I can think of, other than the genetic and chromosonal (sp?)differences is that there are many countries who would likely boycott the Olympics if they allowed it because of total lack of parity, massive fraud in chemical abuse and many countries are against this for social, religious and political reasons and the US and parts of Western Europe would not be able to sway these countries to our liberal policies.

Diversity has no place in the Olympics. For example diversity does not exist in the NBA, nor NFL.

Where´s Honest James...? Fox News is still part of 21stCentFox...he should be popping off like he did at Charlottesville.

Is he already hanging out at the 33rd Degree in Anaheim, plotting his next move?

If this doesn´t reflect the views or values of FOX News, then I´m happy to say I don´t watch them any longer. The Olympics is not a representative body. It is supposed to be a competition of the best, without regard to race, gender or sexual orientation.

When you allow a small fringe group bully you into dropping a column, I suggest you grow som cajones.

Centrists on cusp of forcing
immigration votes as petition grows
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Juliegrace Brufke    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 5/24/2018 12:28:04 PM     Post Reply
Two more House Republicans have joined the discharge petition to force votes on immigration, potentially leaving centrists just two signatures short of success. Reps. Tom Reed (R-N.Y.) and Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.) signed the discharge petition Thursday before the House left town for the Memorial Day recess. If all Democrats endorse the petition, just two more GOP signatures would be needed to reach the magic number of 218. House Republican leaders and conservatives in the House Freedom Caucus have fought to stop the petition, which was introduced by Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.). Leaders have warned that bypassing the usual process for

On Monday, Netflix announced that it had signed a multimillion deal with former president Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama, and on Wednesday, Obama spoke publicly about the deal for the first time. (Snip) He recounted his first job out of college as a community organizer, helping bring various factions together to solve local problems from crime to underfunded schools. An older, experienced community organizer told the young Obama at the time that before he started to suggest solutions to problems, he should spend a month talking to people and hearing their stories.

‘Cruz just dropped out of the race. It’s going to be a Clinton Trump race. Unbelievable.” It was a little after midnight on May 4, 2016. FBI lawyer Lisa Page was texting her paramour, FBI counterespionage agent Peter Strzok, about the most stunning development to date in the 2016 campaign: Donald Trump was now the inevitable Republican nominee. He would square off against Hillary Clinton, the Democrats’ certain standard-bearer. The race was set . . . between two major-party candidates who were both under investigation by the FBI. In stunned response, Strzok wrote what may be the only words we need to know,

Mainstream Media’s Credibility

When English statesman Edmund Burke referred to the journalists of his time as the “fourth estate,” it was a term of esteem. To be a member of the press was a high calling, a great responsibility, and an honor. (Snip) No longer are they the fourth estate; instead, they’ve become a fifth column. The mainstream media has completely betrayed the trust of the American people. ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN aren’t even feigning objectivity anymore. Instead of being the guardians of a free nation, they’ve become nothing but agenda-driven shills for leftist ideology. They are propogandists worthy of comparison to

Despite the institution of a new policy requiring players to stand during the national anthem and imposing fines for any that don´t, no New York Jets players will be paying any fines. Team chairman Christopher Johnson, who is acting as the owner while his brother, Woody Johnson, serves as the United States Ambassador to the United Kingdom, told Newsday on Wednesday that the team will cover any fines incurred by Jets players for violating the anthem policy. "I do not like imposing any club-specific rules," Johnson said, per Newsday. "If somebody [on the Jets] takes a knee, that fine will be

Former President Barack Obama’s education secretary and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel were planning how to turn a national tragedy into a legislative victory for the administration two days after the 2012 mass shooting in Newtown, Conn. That’s according to emails obtained under a Freedom of Information request from a reporter from the Baltimore Post. On the morning of Dec. 14, 2012, a 20-year-old man killed his mother in their home then traveled to Sandy Hook Elementary School — a semi-automatic rifle and two pistols in tow. He broke into the school and killed another 26 people — 20 of them

Attacks on the FBI and lying about its work will do lasting damage to our country. How will Republicans explain this to their grandchildren?” Comey tweeted.

A plastic surgeon who filmed herself singing and dancing around the operating table as she performed procedures was accused of leaving a patient with “catastrophic” brain damage. Dr. Windell Davis Boutte uploaded over 20 clips of herself prancing around next to patients while singing along to hip-hop tunes. She even sliced someone open for the camera as “Cut It” by O.T. Genasis blared out in the background. Icilma Cornelius suffered heart failure after being pushed into having a pre-wedding tummy tuck at Boutte’s clinic in Lilburn, Georgia, in February 2016, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

NFL club owners are considering potential 15-yard penalties for kneeling during the national anthem among ways of coping with a backlash over player protests, Sports Illustrated reported Tuesday. According to a story on the magazine´s website, owners set aside three hours to talk about the anthem issue, which President Donald Trump elevated into a major controversy last year. Ideas to handle players kneeling during the anthem included allowing home teams to decide if players should be out of the locker room during the pre-game playing of The Star-Spangled Banner or not.If players are on the sideline, then 15-yard

President Trump cannot block people from his @realDonaldTrump account just because he doesn’t like their political views, a Manhattan federal judge ruled on Wednesday. Doing so violates their First Amendment right to free speech because Twitter is a “public forum,” Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald wrote in a landmark ruling that could change how public officials use Twitter. “We reject the defendants’ contentions that the First Amendment does not apply in this case and that the President’s personal First Amendment interests supersede those of plaintiffs,” the judge wrote in her 75-page ?decision.
