you are correct. You missed the point of his, column. He's saying that the Olympic Committee is going to prioritize putting forward diverse faces regardless of if you win or not. He's saying that they aren't prioritizing winning and that's what he means by it. I'm sorry I have to carry you up to high school English. You frickers are so used to reading 17 words on Twitter it's ridiculous

You're giving him way too much credit, and making several generous assumptions about both him and his readers. There's a reason it was taken down, and its not because of liberals, we're talking about Fox News after all.

It was just lazy writing that was trying to get his dumb readers (Fox News types) to think some kind of affirmative action was holding back worthy competitors.

If you wanna bend over backwards and do all the mental jumping jacks to say otherwise, be my guest....

Well, it started with this bullshite, this is his premise.

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

I mean, I get that's what he's saying...but other than a press piece from a spokesperson touting diversity (Guess what, African-American participation on the Winter Olympic team is up to a WHOPPING 4%!), I don't know how he comes to the conclusion that they don't care about winning.

Is his premise that better athletes are being dropped for "darker, gayer, and different" ones?

If that was the case, he'd have a point

I don't think that is the case, and he's a retard

They mad because they just figured out that a not insignificant number of figure skaters are gay? And they mad because people with darker skin pigment are participating in winter sports?

That is so fricking twisted. These are our best, and they play to win. Who gives a crap if they are gay or brown?

That may be what he is saying, but our Olympic teams are determined through qualification contests which are mostly also broadcast on TV. It would have been a highly publicized outrage if a dark skinned bobsled team with a slower time was advanced to the team at the trials over a lighter skinned team with a faster time.

That just ain't happening.

If that is true then the bull shite about “diversity” is unnecessary.

I've seen God knows how many stories about gay Olympic athletes as if it's some sort of barrier in their sport. It's try hard bull shite and it takes away from what the Olympics are supposed to be about.

Yep. No one gives a shite that some guy who's really good at skiing down a mountain just so happens to be a fairy

How exactly are they going to prioritize putting forward diverse faces? Is he implying that the qualification process is being tainted to ensure diversity? Because I'd love to see some evidence of that. The qualification process is pretty rigorous and seems a little tough to rig. Or is he just saying that athletes of color are going to be given undo press attention or media availabilities? Because as an avid Olympics watcher, I can tell you that the people who rack up the medals get the most attention--every time. The biggest Olympic stars in my lifetime have been black, Asian, white, girls and guys.

Sounds like another WAWG looking for a gripe.

It's good they took it down but this just reenforces the view that everyone has of Fox.
