The scourge of political correctness is worse then during Adolf Hitler’s Olympics. In the 1936 Olympics, black Jesse Owens could participate and win a gold medal, despite Hitler’s objections. In 2012 Voula Papachristou was not so lucky. Support for a legal party that got 7% of the Greek vote plus a joke about Blacks eliminated her from the Olympic team. Voula Papachristou‘s joke was not inciting violence, it was not even derogatory or discriminatory.
Though shalt not talk about Blacks except in praise
But really this is not about discrimination. it is about the fact that blacks are sacred objects, and you do not make jokes about sacred objects. But this truth, that in liberal society blacks are sacred objects, cannot be stated aloud because it would reveal too much about the liberal order, so instead it is said that we must “never discriminate between human beings and races.” 3
So what if she was racist and decried that Africans are brining crime to Europe and should not be let in? In the liberal 1800’s or early 1900 such would be personal opinions, free speech, political opinion. Mankind fought for democratic freedom, for constitutional rights. But now, freedom is no more.
Full participation in the Olympics is only allowed to athletes who get a clean pass on political correctness. Excelling in sports is not the only pre-requisite. One needs a clean bill from the political correctness crowd.
Though shalt not pose with rifles in a US gun shop
Australian swimmers Nick D’Arcy and Kenrick Monk will be sent home from the London Olympics at the conclusion of their respective swimming events, the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) has announced.
The pair came under heavy criticism after posting a photo of themselves online brandishing high-powered weapons in a US gun shop.D’Arcy and Monk to be sent home early
Though shalt not have a boyfriend with unpopular political opinions (Guilt by association)
It is not enough to be politically clean. Your friends must be politically correct too. Befriending candidates for election is enough to get one’s Olympic stay cut short. Ever tried to find cheap housing during Olympic games, when expelled from the Olympic village?
Then there is the case of Nadja Drygalla, a rower who was pressured to leave the German Olympic team last Friday after a TV station reported that her boyfriend was Michael Fischer, who had been a candidate for the far-right National Democratic party in a regional election last year. Some also claimed Fischer had been involved in disruptive protests against immigrants.
Drygalla vehemently denied harboring any extremist views. But the news report prompted Michael Vesper, chief of the German Olympic Sports Confederation, to call her in for a long talk.
“She explained the matter from her point of view,” Vesper told journalists. “I made the problem clear to her.” According to Vesper, the rower reaffirmed her allegiance to the Olympic Charter, and he acknowledged, “I have no doubt that she not only stands upon the foundation of the German constitution but also on that of the Olympic values.” But then Drygalla announced she was “voluntarily” leaving the Olympics, and Vesper accepted her “choice.” Olympic Political Correctness (Why I take offense at the 2012 London Games)
The treatment of Drygalla recalls the classic “guilt by association” tactics that liberals usually rail against when the victims are Communists. The National Democratic party may be odious (government officials have labeled it anti-Semitic), but it is a legal entity with elected members in two state parliaments.
