There’s been a lot of hype about the USA National Basketball Team playing Iran in the World Basketball Championship. Tuesday, Team USA beat Iran, but with the PC pandering of “our” team, it’s as if we lost. Sadly, Team USA Coach Mike Krzyzewski and players were all too dhimmi-esque regarding Iran. Barf. Then, the cheerleaders had to wear long pants to respect Islam and Iran. Double barf.
Coach K, Team USA, & Dancers Dhimmi Up for Iran, Islam
First there’s Coach K. Imagine if it was 1940, and he had restricted himself to this kind of wimpitude when playing Hitler’s German team:
The main interest in the Iran game comes from local journalists trying to hype it because of the political tensions between the countries, but Krzyzewski downplayed that.
“This is a sporting event,” he said. “We have respect for Iran. I actually played in Iran in the 1970s when I was on the U.S. Armed Forces team. I have great feelings for their country. They’re sportsmen and so are we.
Then, there’s Mr. Khloe Kardashian a/k/a Lamar Odom:
“That’s one of the beautiful things about sports,” U.S. center Lamar Odom said. “If you think about the history of sports, you take people from different cultures, from different beliefs and bring them together. Sports is the one thing that can kind of bring people together and have a great atmosphere. It was great playing a game like this.”
Can’t we all just get along?
Hmmm . . . I wonder if he’d have this same “We Are the World” attitude if Ahmadinejad denied Black slavery happened, rather than denying the Holocaust happened. Or if he said he’d wipe out Blacks from the world, rather than the Jews.
And finally there are the American cheerleaders:
And in a nod to the Iranian supporters in Istanbul — which included minister of sports Ali Saeedlou earlier in the tournament — dancers were ordered to cover up for their performances during the game. Islam prohibits women from exposing their skin in public, and Iranian officials had turned their backs when the dancers performed in earlier games.
The dancers wore long pants Wednesday.
So, they turned their backs. Who cares? For this, the dancers must cover up so as not to offend this country of mass murderers, human rights abusers, and Holocaust deniers.
Sheesh . . . kabob.
