Team USA?: USA Hoops Dancers Wear Long Pants in Deference to Islam, Iran; Coach K, Dhimmi

By Debbie Schlussel

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.

I’m surprised the US Team they didn’t stone any women at halftime to make the Iranians feel more at home.

    Actually, US did not beat Iran.

    Iran beat the US the moment they put on the slacks.

Actually, I think Odom WOULD still be all about him some Iran. He praised Jay-Z for wearing a Chea Guevara t-shirt. Of course Guevara is more famous for his revolutionary quotes than this gem:

“The blacks, those magnificent examples of the African race who have conserved their racial purity by a lack of affinity with washing, have seen their patch invaded by a different kind of slave: The Portugese…. the black is indolent and fanciful, he spends his money on frivolity and drink; the European comes from a tradition of working and saving which follows him to this corner of America and drives him to get ahead.”

After praising Jay-Z for promoting THAT guy, it is no surprise that he has little concern for (if any knowledge of) Ahmadinejad’s view of the Holocaust.

Ignorance is dangerous.

Screw Islam.

I have a theory on why Coach Krzyzewski acquiesced to the Iranian demands for long pants on the cheerleaders. He did not want the Iranians to have an excuse for losing by claiming their fully vertical minarets interfered with their ability to play basketball.

Charles Kastriot on September 2, 2010 at 4:53 pm

I know we will never see the day when cheerleaders from Muslim countries, to the extent they may exist, where sexy revealing outfits in deference to OUR culture. It always works the other way; we defer to them, never vice versa.

When Muslims enter beauty contests it is always for opportunistic reasons, not out of respect for our culture.

We never see Muslim men and women together out of respect for our culture; it’s always the other way around.

And of course all of this is a repeat of the craven anti-semitic behavior of athletic teams in the late 30s.

Little Al on September 2, 2010 at 4:56 pm

So a bunch of sex objects whose sole purpose is to be sex objects had to be a little less revealing…..oh how awful for them.

Nak on September 2, 2010 at 5:35 pm

The same peace loving Iranian “officials” who turned their backs to female dancers, probably can’t wait to get home and stone more Muslim women to death and have romantic relations with barnyard animals.

Ace on September 2, 2010 at 6:27 pm

So first you are upset when little girls dressed skimpy and danced to beyonce, then you got upset when disney gave tinkerbell a less revealing outfit, and finally you are mad a bunch of bimbo cheerleaders had to put some pants on.
Consistent much?

Nak on September 2, 2010 at 6:58 pm

    Rambling on like usual? Looking at what you post is like breakfast time in Alzheimer’s unit at a nursing home, only the patients would tend to be more coherent than you.

What a shame. I love the international game so much more than the NBA style of basketball. International play is REAL basketball. The U.S. players still play NBA style which is more like some schoolyard version. They stand around and wait for the defense to clear out of the key so they can drive the lane and dunk, only it doesn’t work that way in international play. The team on offense actually has to move the ball and get defenders out of position in order to get a good shot opportunity. That’s why the commits so many stupid turnovers, misses so many easy opportunities to score, and take so many poor shots after making only one pass. They also miss a lot more free throws than any good team should miss, and blow chances to score under the basket by bringing the ball down to their chest (where any defender can grab it) in order to get a higher jump to slam dunk instead of just going right back up and putting the ball in the hole. They still think it’s showtime instead of a game that the other team is trying to win. You’d think they would learn that after almost losing to a quality team, Brazil, on Monday that their style of play isn’t going to get them the championship. I’ll bet though that they’ll just keep trying to put on a show for everyone, but everyone will not be impressed; least of all the opposing teams, many of which have their own NBA players and are not at all scared of playing the U.S.

The Islamists, as always, make me want to puke that they would use something as great as international basketball to display their sexual repression.

On the other hand, since this style of basketball is so great, what are cheerleaders really needed for? Beats me!

…1940…( 70 years ago)… :

“….The main interest in the Nazi Germany 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 Nazi Germany. I actually played in Nazi Germany in the 1930s when I was on the U.S. Armed Forces team. I have great feelings for their country. They’re sportsmen and so are we…”

……Dr. Henry Walton “Indiana” Jones, Jr. Ph.D., refused to comment on Krzyzewski’s statement……

“…and Iranian officials had turned their backs when the dancers performed in earlier games.”

And right after the game these same Iranian “officials” went to the nearest topless bar and spent a bundle on booze and table dances.

What hypocrites!

“We have respect for Iran.” Coach K, if you don’t have respect for yourself, at least show some respect for your country.

What next, sell only halal hotdogs at the game? Segregate the audience by sex? Or not allow women to attend at all? Burqua’s on all cheerleaders? How about prepubescent boys as “cheerleaders” instead of those temptress cheerleaders? Beheadings, stonings,and hangings as halftime entertainment? Instead of TV timeouts, call to prayer timeouts? Game rules based on sharia law? Free Koran night? Mohammed look a like night…oops, sorry can”t have that one!

Coach K should dress as Neville Chamberlain for Halloween.

Hey Beavi…I mean ‘CornCoLeo’. Seems to me like you’re comparing NBA basketball to ‘professional wrestling’! Actually, I’d agree with that, and it goes for most “Pro” sports. It’s more show than sports. Why else would a 60 minute football game go on for 3 to 4 hours. These guys are real athletes, no doubt, but I’ve seen kids in Little Leauge Baseball take a worse beating than the real pros. Gotta pamper their multi-million dollar investements you know. Hockey’s still pretty real though, if you’re into that.

Anyway, so the cheerleaders had to wear pants to cover up their Hot all-American Legs. Hmmm, who’s the loooooooser there 😉

Speaking of real man’s sports, how about the WWF vs. the UFC!
Now that would be real fun to watch!

Butthea…er, I mean…

Hey sh*tbird NAK, I think there is a difference between the portrayal of little girls and full grown women. A concept Islam hasn’t figured out yet.

CaliforniaScreaming on September 3, 2010 at 12:34 am

Just want to say fuck ayatollah assholah and fuck Iran. Fuck western dhimmitude while I’m at it.

Great article Debbie, I didn’t watch the game earlier this week, and to be honest with you Debbie, I’m not really surprised that the cheerleaders had to wear long clothing because of the backwardness and intolerance of the Iranian government and radical islam itself. And where the hell are the moderate muslims, why haven’t they come out and say anything about what happend in that ballgame, in which the cheerleaders had to wear long clothing instead of the traditional short clothing?

“A nation is identified by it’s borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on September 3, 2010 at 10:54 am

Oh, I know why the Islamists in Istanbul are so offended by leggy women cheerleaders at the games. The Islamists would much rather see entertainment provided by the “Bacha Boys” that Debbie did an article on a few months ago. If you think I’m joking just find that article (just type “Bacha Boys”) in the search box).

CornCoLeo on September 3, 2010 at 11:42 am

Get your facts right
what??? these are not USA dancers!! They are Russian and eastern European dancers hired by the Turkish organizers. Team USA have nothing to do with this.

D: No, Get YOUR Facts Right! In fact, the USA dancers were forced to put on long pants. The Russian and Eastern European dancers were forced to leave the venue. DS

david on September 3, 2010 at 12:09 pm

As I’ve said before, I know a woman who lived in Saudi Arabia for years and she said they are total hypocrites. She said they are big time boozers and chase skirts over there far worse than Italian men.

I wish Odom had taken the ooogly Kardashian he married over there and made her cover everything up.

Coach K is a jerk. Always has been.

Jeff_W on September 3, 2010 at 12:16 pm

shouldn’t the men been forced to wear long pants and long sleeves as not to temp man/boy loving culture?
