This part is 100% false, you know they have qualifiers for the Olympics right? Some are even televised.

You do realize that this isn't true of every event, right?

Or do I have to hold your hand?

Our goal has always been to win metals, we send our best. I'm sorry this writer somehow doesn't see that many of our superior athletes are no longer white christians. But make no mistake, they're our superior athletes none the less.

“No sport that we are aware of awards points – or medals – for skin color or sexual orientation.


An assertion literally nobody has ever made. How does pass the smell test with any of you?

When an organization whines incessantly about a need for diversity............then, you should probably assume they act on their beliefs.

And, I guess this is news to some people but not every event in the olympics is an individual event.

Just sayin...........

Fox succumbed to pathetic liberal backlash that hates to see anything that doesn't worship diversity.

Does the Olympics now award medals for skin color or sexual orientation?

Point me to the Olympian who got in over his/her white/straight counterpart that he/she should've gotten in? Which one, specifically?

.....Better start googling, and hoping.

Dude what...that is 100% not true. Not everything has a specific, definitive measurable. Quite a bit is subjective.

That being said I trust them to send the best until otherwise proven wrong.

There has been gay people in the Olympics since its inception.

And I’m not talking about 1896.

You're full of shite without an ounce of evidence to back it up. Your entire premise is "people complained so they probably caved. Now I should just assume its true so we should write about it".

It sounds like what he wrote went over your head. Understandable.

Of course you have to compete to make the team and win medals.

The Olympic teams get to decide who to promote though, who to carry torches, who to conduct interviews/media.

Remember that Muslim fencer from Brazil Olympics? She was awful, terrible, was humiliated in her first match. Yet she was the "face" of the US team because they wanted to push a pro-Muslim agenda.

This.

Swing and a miss from Fox. That was fricking silly.

100% correct

Case in point the black speed skater who is throwing a hissy fit because it's Black History Month, and therefor he's entitled to be the flag bearer. It doesnt matter that the team voted for someone else.

I suppose theyre all white hooded racists?

There is literally no corner of our society where liberals, when in charge.........have not acted to prioritize diversity.

I'm merely observing that if liberals tell you they prioritize a thing, you should probably take them at their word eventually. They don't tend to get power and then ignore such things.
