Those who’ve been following my work know I dislike the Olympics (especially the winter ones: figure-skating; is that REALLY a sport?). The Games are political, anti-American, not amateur (which was what they were supposed to be), and pro-Palestinian. To date, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) refuses to memorialize the Israeli athletes who gave their lives because of crummy IOC “security.”
There was only ONE Olympic Games I liked: THIS ONE! (Do yourself a favor and rent the movie about that, instead of wasting time, tonight, watching the Palestinian Rafah Tunnel Luge Team march at the Opening Ceremony in their official clothing sponsors, Kassem Rockets and Ahmed’s Disintegrating Belts. Ditto for the Iranian Olympic Holocaust Cartoon Ice Sculpture Team.)
To catch up on what I think about the phony, bloody Olympics, here’s my three part series, “What’s So Great About the Bloody Olympics” from 2002:
* Part I;
* Part II; and
* Part III.
Now, consider this: The Olympic Games, beginning tonight, take place in Torino, Italy, which has a Muslim population of at least 10,000 (Italy’s largest Islamic population), which–like everywhere else–is dominated by extremists.
According to USA Today hockey writer, Kevin Allen, Torino’s former chief Islamic cleric, Imam Bouchta Bouriqi, was expelled. He was deported to Morocco for aligning himself with terrorists. And by the way, he managed the Halal (Islamic dietary law) market.
We expect that he left a lot of equally terrorist-aligned congregants and followers who remain in Torino. Don’t worry, though. Our taxpayer dollars are paying for a great deal of FBI and DHS agents to provide security at the Olympics, even though it is 1) not on our soil; and 2) not a government event, but one owned and run by the multi-billion dollar IOC, which can afford its OWN security.
(Full Disclosure: During the 1996 Olympics, I represented Olympic Silver Medalist Diver, Scott Donie, of the U.S. Olympic Team and went to the Summer Games in Atlanta. Believe me, the Olympics are WAY over-hyped.)
