I love the Olympics, and plan to watch them. But if gets as bad as this author suggests, I'll turn it off. Go woke, go broke.

The Olympics are dead to me. I have tolerated them in the past when they decided to expand them to professionals instead of only amateurs, but now that we have decided to send communist scum to represent America, I am done. I hope that Team CPUSA doesn't win a single medal in the entire games.

I used to love watching the olympics, especially the winter ones. Have not watched in years and won't this time either. It's sad what has happened to a once wonderful event.

I stopped watching when I saw clenched black fists on a podium, many years ago. I saw highlights of the great hockey win, on a separate video, and didn't have to endure any of the foolishness. I guess I'm just not 'woke' enough to take political rants with my sports.

The Left ruins everything it touches. First, there was Katie Couric who introduced the "let's talk about your dead [insert name of relative here]" style of Olympic reporting. Then the networks got cocky. They were already telling American's who would win elections, so they thought they could tell Americans who would win sports events. That started the era of endless B-roll footage for predestined winners. Unfortunately for the nets, many lost. But that won't stop them. They'll keep trying to control the future by reporting on it ahead of time. Now, we enter the "I Hate America" era of sports coverage. It doesn't help that we got to watch unabashed patriotism this weekend from the Brits and the Italians. Even the Italians, allies of Hitler in The Big One, were happy to cheer their Country. But we Americans will be forced to apologize because we look like Klansmen Democrats who have since seized control of the national government.

I used to love watching the Olympics when ABC was broadcasting them. When NBC won the broadcasting rights things started downhill and it has become worse with every broadcast. I may watch the opening ceremonies to enjoy the beauty of Japan but after that? Phooey.

Since the athletes won't be performing in front of live spectators--banned because of COVID--the wokeness won't be receiving any ovations. Of course, neither will great performances in various events. The world is far from back to normal, Same as OP, I will be watching, and hoping not to see anything to cause me to snap the television off in rage. Since early 2020 track and field fans have seen several new world records set in the pole vault, the shot put, and 400m Intermediate hurdles (maybe more events). I want to see if the 2021 athletes can perhaps break a few more. That doesn't happen very often. I just hope a few politicized malcontents don't ruin it for everyone.

I cooled on the Olympics years ago. The coverage is too fragmented - you get interested in one sport, then they switch to another one, and you have to wait hours for the return to the one you really want to see. They hold off on the interesting sports for hours until late in prime time. After a while, I started switching away or wandering off during the less interesting stuff. More often than not, I didn't go back.

Joe Biden told us yesterday, “word of a Biden” we were on the verge of America’s “greatest future.” There are a couple of problems with that. We may be on the verge of America’s “greatest future” but it will be in spite of Biden, not because of it and likely only after we are past Biden because of his awful policies. But the other problem is that the word of a Biden isn’t worth anything. Media doesn’t acknowledge them as lies, but Biden lies like he breathes. His most common type of lie is the one that puffs him up — the boasting lie.

Out of options, police shoot and kill the unpredictable, aggressive subject. Now, imagine this scenario: A crazed man goes on an armed carjacking spree. He succeeds in removing a woman from her vehicle at gunpoint, necessitating a short chase by police before leaping out of the still-moving vehicle and charging at police with what appears to be a handgun. Police shoot and kill the subject.

An on-duty patrol officer in Florida who was inspecting a “suspicious vehicle” Wednesday night was rushed to the hospital after the driver shot him in the head, a video of the incident shows. The shooting prompted a county-wide lockdown and the Daytona Beach Police Department is offering a $100,000 reward “for anyone who can help authorities locate the man who shot one of our officers in the head,” a statement from the agency reads. Authorities have identified the suspect as Othal Wallace, a 29-year-old black male, who was behind the wheels of a gray 2016 Honda HRV with California tag 7TNX532 at the time of the inspection and shooting.

On Tuesday’s The View, co-host Joy Behar made a disgusting joke targeted at Las Vegas Raiders’ defensive end Carl Nassib, who recently came out as gay. During the segment, the panel largely supported Nassib’s announcement, praising him for his courage. However, Behar cracked a joke when explaining she doesn’t know much about football. “After they said ‘penetration in the end zone,’ they lose me,” Behar said. “Behar’s comment made everyone on the show crack up with the exception of McCain, who looked visibly disgusted by the remark,” Fox News reported. Yikes! This joke from Joy Behar during a discussion of the first active gay player in the NFL.

If the term systemic racism were thrown around one time, it would be too much. As it is, the word has joined the list of once emotionally-powerful words that now mean absolutely nothing through sheer overuse. It joins the brotherhood of other terms like racism, white supremacist, Nazi, and Jim Crow. To be sure, the origins of those words are horrific; they just mean nothing in a modern context. While hideous, there is a panache leftists have with language. Systemic language means nothing and everything at once.

From NY Times: Carolina Barrero, a Cuban activist, went even further. “It is the most massive popular demonstration to protest the government that we have experienced in Cuba since ’59,”
