The Olympics are now officially ruined

Olympics Committee Softens Rules to Allow for Political Statements

Gwen Berry

On Friday, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) quietly modified its rule prohibiting athletes from making political statements during the Olympics.

The rule in question, Rule 50, has been a long-standing safeguard against allowing athletes to protest during the Olympic games. However, in response to mounting pressure from athletes and the recent controversy surrounding anthem-snubbing U.S. hammer thrower Gwen Berry, the IOC has moved to allow athletes much more leeway in expressing their political views.

According to USA Today :

Under the new guidance, athletes will be able to express their views on the field of play before competition so long is it is not targeted against people, not disruptive and not otherwise prohibited by national Olympic committees or international federations. Expressions during competition, in the Olympic village and during ceremonies — including medal, opening and closing ceremonies — remain prohibited under a longstanding rule in the Olympic charter baring ‘political, religious or racial propaganda.’

They should do away with any gender distinctions in the events. Then we will get the feminists on our side.

still not allowed to do anything during opening, closing, and medal ceremonies.

do yourselves a favor, figure out how to watch the games with british commentary, or something like that, and you’ll miss a lot of the political garbage, and you might even forget that allison felix is a mom.

Seriously, do you watch anything anymore? Everything triggers you so bad and you pop in these threads to say you won’t be watching.

If you look for it you can find woke shit in pretty much anything these days. And you seem to be the for to definitely look for it.

I will say though, I was super psyched about the watchman tv series on HBO and after 2 episodes I was done with it. Only things that really turn me off to stuff these days are tranny pandering and white man bad. Watchmen was so fucking over the top I couldn’t do it.

Sucks, but I love the olympics and I will continue to watch

I vow not to watch the olympics this year (I wasn’t going to watch anyways).

I watch a lot of Judge Judy, golf, and a ton of under the radar movies that aren’t woke. Its not hard finding stuff to watch if you look hard enough. I just refuse to watch any woke shit anymore, life is too short my friend:)

That should be pretty damn entertaining.
