Can we get rid of the Olympics now and for ever – please?

As if the misogyny and sexism which permeates the Olympics were not enough…

(Where are the men’s synchronized swimmers?  Where were the women ski jumpers?  Why are women not permitted to compete as equals, but are relegated to second-class competitions? Gender apartheid is wrong and immoral – always and everywhere, including in athletics!)

As if the excusing of animal cruelty in order to cater to delusional beliefs were not enough…

(The Femen have it right:  the next Olympic sports likely to be introduced are stoning and speed raping!)

As if the clear corruption of the IOC were not so blatant (and thus did not render all ‘judged’ sports meaningless)…

But the fascism that are the very foundation of these ‘games’ is so appalling, it is beyond belief that it is tolerated!

And, yes – a government or, as is the case with IOC, a government-empowered organ – selling commercial monopoly rights to the highest bidder and then rigorously enforcing them is the very definition of fascism…

Why are we still tolerating this?

Why are we normalizing this form of corporate thuggery?  Why is this unholy alliance of international racketeering with corporate entities given government protection?

Shame on us all!

    Agreed. Countries would not spend billions of dollars hosting these games if they were ONLY for sportsmanship and the fun of the playing the games.
