Mitt Romney Refused Memorial For Slain Israeli Athletes as Salt Lake Olympic Chief; Denounced US Fans

By Debbie Schlussel

In 2002, I was on CNN criticizing the Olympic Games’ refusal to memorialize the Israeli athletes murdered by Islamic terrorists at the Munich Olympic Games in 1972 (see video, below). It was then the 30th anniversary of the Munich Olympic Massacre, and Mitt Romney was running the Salt Lake Games. He was approached by many who wanted the Israeli athletes memorialized, and yet, he ignored those requests and joined IOC Chief Jacques Rogge in refusing to do anything to remember them. Now, ten years later, Mitt Romney echoed (more than a week later) even anti-Israel Barack Obama in calling for an official Olympic memorial to the Israeli athletes. But it’s just more evidence of how cheap talk is for Mitt Romney and what a hypocrite and fraud he is. As the chief of the Salt Lake Olympic Games, he could have done a memorial. But he chose not to. Instead, he got $380 million in U.S. tax money for his Olympics (something the GAO reported, but which Romney conveniently skips over when he gushes over his Olympic Games), and, as I noted on this site in 2002, used some of it to have an Olympic Memorial to Florence Griffith-Joyner a/k/a “Flo-Jo,” whose death had absolutely NOTHING to do with the Olympics, in the Salt Lake Games’ Opening Ceremony. The Alvin Ailey-choreographed memorial cost $2-3 million dollars and was publicly funded by American tax dollars. And, by the way, the Flo-Jo memorial puts the lie to Rogge’s claim that the Olympics doesn’t want memorials in the Opening Ceremonies or references to sad events. It’s just more BS by him. In addition to refusing to memorialize the Israeli athletes, Mitt Romney also denounced American fans cheering for Team USA just a few months after the 9/11 attacks. More on that later. But first, read this about Romney’s views on the Israeli Olympic athletes who died (and whom he refused to memorialize when he had the chance):

U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney, about to visit the London Olympics and Israel, said for the first time on Monday that he supports an official minute of silence at Friday’s opening ceremony for the Games to honor Israeli athletes killed at the 1972 Munich Olympics.

Romney’s move broke years of his own silence on the issue, including his time leading the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics in 2002. During those Games, survivors of the slain Israelis called on the International Olympic Committee to observe a moment of silence to mark what was the 30th anniversary of the deaths in Munich. . . .


Now, with Romney in a heated campaign against Democratic President Barack Obama and heading to Europe and Israel for a week on an international stage, the Republican former Massachusetts governor is joining those calls.

“Governor Romney supports the moment of silence in remembrance of the Israeli athletes killed in the Munich Olympic Games,” Andrea Saul, a spokeswoman for Romney, told Reuters in an email on Monday.

Yup, more Romney opportunism. When he had the chance, he did nothing and ignored those of us calling for a memorial. Now, it makes no difference. It’s just cheap talk coming from him. And at that time, instead of remembering the slain Israeli athletes, he chose to attack Americans in the foreign press (in the UK’s Guardian):

Around the world it was like, ‘Boy, those Americans, always beating their chests.’ This is not our time to talk about how great America is. It’s not designed to be a patriotic American display.

That was Romney just ten years ago. Romney now is no different and won’t be in the White House. So, basically we have a choice of fully White Obama or half-White Obama in November.

Anyone who thinks there will be much actual difference between these two schlocky candidates in the White House is smoking dope. Either way, we’re screwed.

They are both bad, but I still think Obama is worse. He doesn’t even acknowledge Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and he barely acknowledges Israel’s fight with terrorism.

Zsuzsi on July 27, 2012 at 1:49 pm

    Zsuzsi,

    Romney hasn’t acknowledged Jerusalem as Israel’s capital either.

    He’s refused to pledge to move the US embassy to Jerusalem. That should tell you where he stands.

    Scott on July 27, 2012 at 10:36 pm

Speculation. Cheap talk. You can do better, Debbie. Disappointed, because not voting for Romney means voting for Obama. Are you really wanna be screwed? So – keep such talk. Encourage more people do just that. Between awful and bad I would choose the second one.

Boris A. Borovoy on July 27, 2012 at 1:56 pm

    Dead-on Boris! Continually trashing Romney, and those of weak minds that are easily led will, without a doubt either Vote for Obama or not vote for Romney which is a vote for Obama. You can’t consistently trash Romney and expect to get this jerk in the White House now, out. There is not one person who will have all of your ideology in place – but you have to say when placing the two side by side which one would better represent you. If your continual answer is neither, then you have to be the ideologue. Romney has my vote!!!!

    Craig B on July 27, 2012 at 2:34 pm

      The entire problem with frauds and pretenders in the conservative movement is they don’t demand better. That’s why is the GOP is saddled with a political streetwalker like Romney.

      Between him and Obama – I don’t see any real difference. And if you think an older Romney has undergone a political metamorphosis, I’ll sell you the Big Dig in Boston.

      When Mitt Romney had a chance to be courageous, he missed the boat. Like Debbie says, all the fertilizer BS in the world from politicians couldn’t make a lawn grow. And it won’t change for the better America’s standing the world.

      In truth the contest between Mitt Happens and Obama is no contest at all. Wake the heck up!

      NormanF on July 27, 2012 at 3:48 pm

      Haha, yes! Because someone who doesn’t share some views with EITHER ONE of these two nearly identical candidates MUST be an ideologue.

      Statusmonkey on July 27, 2012 at 6:20 pm

    Well gee, Boris, I hope you know that you won’t be putting Romney in the White House. He’s already burned too many bridges to win in November. On the other hand, your reliable Romney vote WILL help to ensure that our 2016 nominee looks just like him.

    Statusmonkey on July 27, 2012 at 6:15 pm

I’ll have to hold my nose really well when I vote for Mitt.

David on July 27, 2012 at 2:00 pm

Romney is a student of McCain politics 101. What else would you expect from this guy?

    For the most part, the same people advised Romney 12 and McCain 08. I think Kevin Smith would say that you fail upward in political consulting.

We have two douchebags running for president and we will just have to vote for the one who is just milliliters less douchey than the other

Jonathan E Grant on July 27, 2012 at 2:38 pm

    The lesser of two evils really means something when the lesser of two evils brings something to the table.

    Conservatives shouldn’t expect Romney to be there for them should he get in the White House. He may change the atmospherics in Washington but any one who thinks he will repeal ObamaCare, reduce the size of the federal government or adopt a pro-Israel policy is smoking crack.

    I’ll be prepared to be pleasantly surprised but I’m not expecting it because human nature doesn’t change and by the time people get to be Romney’s age, they are who they are. That is the reality of human life.

    NormanF on July 27, 2012 at 3:56 pm

The answer to whom to vote for in November is this. I’m not voting for Romney, I’m voting against Obama.If Obama wins we’ll get a Socialist stacked Supreme Court.(Although we probably have one now.) If Romney wins we might get fairly decent appointees. But I agree with Debbie. In either case the situation is bleak.

Jerry G on July 27, 2012 at 2:53 pm

I will have to hold my nose and vote Mitt. But regarding the potential for Supreme appointees, it just doesn’t come down to the lesser of two evils, but rather, it is better described as abject, despicable, loathsome evil vs. an evilish RINO. The choice is depressing, but clear.

DS_ROCKS! on July 27, 2012 at 3:15 pm

    Yeah, but you don’t seem to realize that Romney is offering a 2-for-1 special on evil this November: if you vote for him, you get a double dose of the stuff, because unless his inevitable defeat is truly colossal, you can be sure that another Romney clone WILL be our standard-bearer in 2016. And he will also lose.

    Statusmonkey on July 27, 2012 at 6:39 pm

2002 was the Winter Games and this Palestinian atrocity happened un the Summer Games where most countries don’t even compete or even watch the Winter Games.

The right spot would be in the Summer Games but IOC has been anti-semitic since its inception. Even giving Adolf Hitler the 1936 games. IOC’s Belgian head Rogge who has made several anti-Israel statements in the past makes these decisions what to have at the opening ceremonies THEN AND NOW.

bob on July 27, 2012 at 3:31 pm

Hey, Debbie. You accuse Romney of cheap talk. But the truth is all political candidate talk is cheap, by definition. You say Romney is a hypocrite and a fraud. I’ll concede the possibility, but I’m not convinced of that. You have applied an anti-Israel litmus test on Romney and found him wanting. Who is not found wanting? Who would you like to see running for president that would meet all of your criteria?
I cannot comment on why Romney spoke as he did in 2002 about American patriotism. But I can comment on the difference between Obama and Romney.
You really don’t see a difference, Debbie? How come? I have read your column for a while now and believe you are politically astute. Do you honestly not comprehend what Barack Obama has done to this country economically? The level of lies, deceit and corruption which now fester our Department of Justice? The careful meticulous deconstruction of American immigration policy by a president who has flagrantly flouted our laws and due process? How about the level of lies by the Obama Campaign compared to any other political campaign in American history? Not to mention the complete lemming-style cooperation of the mainstream media? In my lifetime, I have never seen our government so out of whack.
And you dare suggest that Romney is that bad? That we have no real, substantive choice in this election? Such a statement or belief does not reflect political astuteness in the least.
I don’t know how bad Romney is. But I’m going to vote for him. I’m going to give him a chance to turn this country around.
I look at Barack Obama and all I see with a second term is a solid guarantee of a global depression. I look at Romney, with all of his faults and see a man who may be able to stop the economic slide.
As to whether or not Romney can stop or is even willing to slow down the Muslim infiltration into our country is a subject I don’t know the answer to. I am aware of your concerns in this matter. And I share them 100 percent. Despite that, I still believe this election is a no-brainer. It is a clear choice between national failure and national hope.

Howard Cross on July 27, 2012 at 3:41 pm

    Howard Cross c’mon! I can’t believe you think that about Romney. Clearly you have not heard and read all the facts. All you need to know about Romney is out there (as is Obama-Putin) you just have to know how to know what is indeed fact and what isn’t.

    So you not knowing about Romney is not a testament of DS’ bias (or facts) on him but that you DON’T know much about him. Start cracking the books because it is all out there.

    Again I am gonna recommend Gregg Jackson’s site on Mitt Romney IF you’re willing to read all the facts on why some Christians are gonna NOT vote for him. He makes a good and tight case WHY and provides proof that no one else really talks about. I would provide link but I don’t know if DS approves and I respect her rules.

    I am annoyed that you don’t know the facts but are doubting DS’ reasons. It’s all out there but you haven’t done your research. That is not DS’ fault but YOURS!

    Skunky on July 27, 2012 at 10:02 pm

      Hey, Skunky. There is no third option. It’s either Romney or Obama. If you’re comfortable with the Democrat Party’s version of the Messiah, fine and dandy. I thank you for suggesting I learn more about the candidate I intend to vote for. But the truth is, in my heart, I do not believe Romney is going to make it his top priority to destroy the United States. In our history, I have never seen a president do to our country what Obama has done. If you feel otherwise, that’s your business. I can assure you I am more than comfortable with my choice.

      Howard Cross on July 27, 2012 at 10:56 pm

        Howard Cross we actually agree BUT while I do not see Mitt Zombie (who I AM voting for BTW…but that is IT!) out to destroy the USA ala Obama-Puitn I think we will eventually get there because Mitt is just as DS describes and maybe even worse to some Christians.

        I point out Gregg’s site because he makes a great case why Christians should NOT vote for him and I do agree BUT I am going to for exactly YOUR fears of Obama-Putin. We are at the ultimate tipping point.

        I do see Norman’s point and I agree with him BUT I won’t join him at this time (even thou’ he is prolly more correct than I am) because I see it as the LAST and final try.

        I’d like to think I would NOT vote for McCain (whom I loathe…) if I could go back in a time machine but see, at that time we were afraid of what Obama-Putin WOULD do, not knowing it, not living it. Well, we know it and live it and even thou’ Romney is indeed a fraud and a political prostitute, he will get my vote with my nose held harder than ever before. We will NOT be out of the woods if he wins…just not so deep into it.

        ALSO, the Conservatives had a chance to NOT pick Mitt but too many were too stupid. I can’t do anything about that. I tried and did NOT vote for him in the primary but too many dummies did. My hands are tied.

        My issue with you was that you didn’t know all the facts and I just wanted to warn you about your blind faith in Romney just because he is a Republican. He’s no good but less bad than Obama-Putin. DS is not wrong and she may be saying SHE will not vote for him but she she didn’t say it definitively….she may be close to NOT voting for him (as most of us are) and she maps out exactly WHY…IF. She, like Gregg Jackson makes a great case why Romney will NOT be our savior…not even close!! For Jews (as she shows) and Christians (as Gregg Jackson maps out).

        Please read Gregg’s blog. I am not trying to tell people NOT to vote for Romney, I just want them to know who he is…even thou’ he is our last chance…

        Skunky on July 27, 2012 at 11:17 pm

          Hmm…

          2008: I despise McCain, but I’m afraid of an Obama presidency, so I’ll sell my soul to McCain.

          2012: I despise McCain, but I’m afraid of another Obama term, so I’ll sell my soul to Romney. Gee, I sure wish I hadn’t dishonored myself by voting for McCain last time…

          The fact that you can’t import your 2008 experience to today and learn something from it just proves something that everyone posting here knew already: that you are an imbecile.

          Imagine watching some cretin sell his soul to the devil, and then seeing him open his bag of loot, where instead of the promised 30 pieces of silver, he finds a huge, crusty 65 year-old dried-up dingleberry. Now imagine that guy falling for this scam TWICE.

          Any questions?

Knowing Romney, I haven’t changed my mind about not voting for him.

I don’t expect anything substantiative to change in November no matter who wins.

bob on July 27, 2012 at 3:49 pm

Bottomline: Romney is not an anti-semite.

Details: Who cares about what happened 10 years ago? The past is over and can’t be changed. Besides, it’s not solely Romney’s decision to make. And let’s make one thing clear: JEWS IN AMERICA ARE AMERICANS FIRST, NOT ISRAELIS. We memorialize Americans not Israelis. Stop preaching identity politics.

FrenchKiss on July 27, 2012 at 5:34 pm

It is interesting that most of the defenders of Romney in this discussion (leaving aside the irksome use of the word ‘gonna’, parroting one of the more loathsome characteristics of Rahm Emmanuel’s speech — I guess the use of contracted speech is supposed to suggest that verbal ‘efficiency’ is to be extended to overall efficiency,an efficiency which he unfortunately does not possess) do not discuss the trigger of this discussion, i.e. his refusal to commemorate the Jewish deaths of 1972.

This can be generalized to show Romney’s overall weaknesses. The candidate fails whenever the discussion gets concrete, whether it is health care, immigration, affirmative action, general incompetence in foreign affairs, etc. On a concrete basis, he really doesn’t offer very much.

And FK suggests that it is un-American to commemorate Jews, or, by extension, individuals from other countries. That argument brings back the canard about the international Jewish conspiracy that has characterized anti-Semitism since, at least, the time of the French Revolution.

Little Al on July 27, 2012 at 5:55 pm

We should memorialize the USS Liberty victims as well.

    We should memorialize Neo-Nazis like Random observer.

I don’t like Romney. I try to tell myself that he’s better than Obama. I told myself the same thing with McCain. Now when I look at McCain, I shake my head and wonder how could I ever have voted for that man. The Muslims and other ideologies have infiltrated our government; voting isn’t going to get it back.

Aaron on July 27, 2012 at 6:22 pm

    The funny thing is that your vote for McCain back in 2008 helped to ensure a Romney nomination this year. I wonder, which liberal Republican will your vote for Romney help to usher in in 2016? My money’s on Bloomberg. And most of this year’s captive Romney voters will be decked out in Bloomberg campaign garb because they think he is “marginally better” than Joe Biden. Wouldn’t it be great if a huge Romney defeat came along and disrupted this cycle?

    Statusmonkey on July 27, 2012 at 6:58 pm

Romney would feel quite comfortable chatting with Obama at a cocktail party. Not exactly the same guy, but close.

Romney had better hope that early November Ohio weather is good, because not many conservatives will brave a rain or snow storm to pull his lever.

If he’s smart, he’ll make a conservative VP choice. Of course, he won’t. It’ll be Bush retread and Romney clone Portman, or the slobbering lapdog Pawlenty, or the faux-conservative and Islamophile Rubio.

adam on July 27, 2012 at 6:23 pm

    Are you KIDDING me? Next to Romney, Rob Portman looks like General Franco. And Bill Clinton looks like Ronald Reagan.

    Portman would have to be an utter MORON to accept such an offer from Romney. I wonder who the McCainiacs would blame for Romney’s defeat, then? Themselves, I’m sure. Riiiight.

    Debbie I request that you ban A1. It seems that his sickness will not even respond to public humiliation. Banning seems to be necessary. This creep contributes zero to the discussion here as well. His penchant for decorating his masturbatory fantasies here with Jewish verbiage pushes me to my unusual request.

    skzion on July 28, 2012 at 3:55 pm

Yes, Obama and Romney are both hypocrite pigs. However, in life we sometimes have to choose between two pigs and go with the less disgusting one. Most of us know which one that is. How sad that when Romney had the chance in Salt Lake, he did nothing. Shameful. I do believe that Romney will be a better friend to Israel than has Obama, and I believe Romney will not take Israel for granted and will actually appreciate what Israel does for us. Israel is our only true friend in the world. Romney better get his act together, because Lord knows that Obama has screwed things up so badly that almost anyone could do a better job than has he.

Dina K on July 28, 2012 at 1:57 am

If it was up to me I would have a memorial to the Israeli athletes at every international sporting events forever or until the world catches on to the fact that we are all on the muslim hit list.First the Jews then the Christians the everyone else.

Tom Dooley on July 28, 2012 at 10:28 am

Did Debbie’s hero Reagan make any special request for an Israelis memorial at 1984 Olympics? I remember that Regan good buddy the pope met Arafat in early 80s and then in 1988 he removed PLO from terrorist organizations. Of course Reagan had to speak at Nazi Germany cemetery. The money that was spent to defend Germany was order of magnitude larger than money the Israelis received to spend on US military equipment. Which was part of Camp Davis agreement. By the way the money that was spend on pre-position military equipment to defend the Saudi oil assets which they stole from US assets and then used them in an oil monopoly would also make the money the Israeli received look puny,

madman on July 28, 2012 at 11:51 am

Bur Reagan did bring down Communism. He projected a clear foreign policy vision in 1980 when campaigning against Carter. What did the Bushes do? What is Romney projecting?

Little Al on July 28, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    Islam was a greater threat than the Soviet Union.
    Just watch the Assad threaten to use WMD when threatened. The Soviet union did not do this when they failed. The bigger threat from Islam is what Orianna Fallaci talked about.

    madman on July 29, 2012 at 12:27 pm

Since we’re talking about what either of the candidates will do for Israel, why don’t we also speak about what Israel will do for Israel, because it seems like nothing has been said about that. I think a country needs to take care of itself before it expects another country to take care of it. And, PM Netanyahu hasn’t done ANY of the caring for Israel, if you follow what’s happening in Israel you’ll know it.

Talia on July 28, 2012 at 5:00 pm

    Brava, Talia. I’m sorry, but danger to Israel comes almost completely from Israeli sources. I simply don’t believe that the American president makes much of a difference.

    The reason Israel doesn’t respond rationally to the Bnei Amalek (Moooooslims) is that the mass public is effectively disenfranchised by the political system. That’s why one always gets the Left even if one votes Right.

    What we Jews can do for Israel is to stop making excuses for it–and for a people that will not fix their dysfunctional political system.

I stopped reading right after you claimed that President Obama is anti-Israel. You have no proof that he is, you know only that you hate having a smart balck man in the White House.

You have no cred, no relevance, no honesty.

shiney_one on July 30, 2012 at 12:05 am

    First off to Chrorby, sir or maam, what the hell does all of your inane spamming have to do with this topic? Answer, NOTHING, so please stick to the damn topic about Mr. Romney (and Obama) refusing to remember the 11 Israeli athletes who were killed 40 years ago in the Munich Olympics by Palestinian-muslim terrorists.

    And to you Shiney_One, apparently this is the very first time you’ve ever commented on this blog, prior to today, I’ve never seen your screen-name appear in the comment section on this blog. In the past DS has explained that how anti-Israel (and anti-American) Obama is, look through the womans archives and you’ll see what she’s talking about, and what is a “balck”?

    BTW, if you think Debbie has no relevance, then WTF did you comment here? And who told you to come over here and start shilling & bidding for this charlatan of a president we have right now?

    “A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

    Sean R. on July 30, 2012 at 12:16 pm

@skzion

We can start with war crimes in Poland by Poles, but you seem not to be interested in learning new things. This must help your state of mind to only read the same opinions and interpretations over and over again.

We don’t need people from US to tell us about our history and faults. We do our own research and it’s not from one perspective. Jan Gross’ books had larger readership in Poland than the American edition.
You don’t happen to read any books in Polish do you. There is a great Historical book fair in Cracow this September.
To sum up this point, no, thank you for your support on writing about our history.

For you and many others Poles are not real living people. We are the psychological “Other”. Not people, but a mind construct. The Other is different lesser, disempowered and shows all the worst qualities, that “we” are not. The “Other” is needed to strenghten the sense of ones identity be it local, national or something completely else.

I don’t know, where your hate comes from.

Why the selective outrage?

Miluimnik on July 30, 2012 at 12:44 pm

I think this post, and many of the anti-Semitic comments posted below it, only reinforce what honest, proud Jews have always know: The Jews must depend only on God, not on gentiles. Some may be righteous and truly support Jews and their homeland, but to become dependent and reliant on their continued support and kindness is sure to bring disaster upon the Jewish nation. We are told over and over again in our holy books not to place out faith in the nations around us, but in the Lord in Heaven. More and more Israeli Jews are realizing this truth, and as America gradually evolves into an Islamic Republic, the smart Jews will get out while they can. I used to worry about Israel’s survival more than the U.S. Republic’s future. Nowadays, I think Israel, as a proud, independent Jewish state, will outlive the Republic as we know it.

Phil on July 30, 2012 at 12:54 pm

Hey Chrobry/Margaret –

Just a few points through your nonsense. It was not the “ruling authorities” that committed the atrocities. It was the local residents.

As for why Jews were in Poland and not America, there were quotas to get into America. The fact of the matter is that Jews were killed elsewhere to, so why don’t you ask instead why did Jews remain on the planet (The question makes just as much sense as yours).

Lastly (although I could write a book responding to you) Pollack anti semitism did not start with World War 2. Have you ever heard of the Chmielnicki?

However its OK. The Poles will get theirs.

    Hey I_AM_ME,

    At last someone, who at least adresses the points. Chrobry for the most part was a spamming troll, but his last long comment – a long mail to DS made sense. It’s sad that both Chrobry and Margaret were fully censored. It’s sad, how a few Poles reacted to her biased post. It’s sad how DS censors out all the Polish normal voices (here and on facebook), that want her to check the basic historical facts, that she’s got wrong. I don’t mean the Polish blame – Jedwabne, Kielce and other massacres happened. It pains me. Polish blame is a fact, but it doesn’t equal collaboration with the Nazis. Jews were the middleman minority in Poland and XX century were extremly antisemitic times everywhere. Poland was no exception.

    Why is the country singled out as the craddle of Antisemitism in XX century, when the roots are more to the West and in the upper class?

    Chmielnicki? Really? He led a Cossack Uprising against the Commonwealth. How does he prove your point?

I do think that Romney is a RINO, two-faced asshole….but we can deal with him later….

But at this point in time….

ANYBODY BUT OBAMA!!
ANYONE BUT OBAMA!!

As far as I’m concerned, Barry Obamama and his cronies should get the firing squad! They are all traitors. All of them.

M: Deal with him later? When he’s in the White House, he’s the king and you won’t be able to “deal” with him. Like you dealt with Bush? Like you stopped Bush’s 8-year love affair with Muslim extremists and the enemies of Israel? Good luck with that. I suppose it’s always good to dream. But yours is an impossible fantasy. DS

So where is that original article here the author refers to, about Mitt and the Olympics? Only found a couple 2012 articles saying “Mitt did this”. I’ve been unable to locate written source data.

Also as others have said, at least Romney acknowledges Israel as one of our closest allies – unlike Obama, who’s taken the Palestinian (pro-terrorist) position and verbally smacked Israel around at every opportunity.

Everyone in the area, in the early to mid-1900s, used to be called “Palestinians”, because the land then was called “Palestine”. The British Mandate provided for separate lands for both Jews and Arabs in the area. The Jews (later Israelis) jumped at the chance, but the Arabs did not, since they wanted the whole area. They and other pro-Arab nations attacked Israel in 1947 (?) but were defeated.

When was the last time any American president recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel? Just sayin’….

And before you think I’m stupid (if I’m wrong, that is), I only started taking an interest in politics after I was able to vote – i.e., the past seven or eight years.

@skzion

I would really like to talk with you about the words you use and your opinions on my nation. Such amount of hate is not healthy.

Jalen is a troll, but the words you use are not justified.

Bart on July 29, 2012 at 5:00 pm

Bart, I couldn’t be less interested in discussing your nation with you.

When you start taking on the scum of your nation instead of leaving it to people like me, I will reassess.

Thanks.
