WASHINGTON, December 20, 2013 — Anyone who thought the Olympics was about sports competition among nations apparently was wrong, at least according to President Barack Obama.
Just like he has tried to reinvent America off her throne of greatness, Obama uses the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia to remake the games into a forum on gay rights. To protest Russia’s passage of laws this year banning the adoption of Russian babies to gay couples and public discussion of gay rights and relationships within ear shot and eyesight of children, Obama picked two openly gay athletes to headline the US delegation to Sochi.
Tennis great and gay activist Billie Jean King and Olympic women’s ice hockey medalist Caitlin Cahow, who is also openly gay, will join Olympic figure skating medalist Brian Boitano, who is rumored to be gay, as part of the delegation. The rest of the delegation includes Olympic speed skater medalists Bonnie Blair and Eric Heiden, former Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, Deputy Secretary of State William Burns and White House Deputy Chief of Staff Rob Nabors.
What’s wrong with these laws? Russia has a right to pass any laws it wants. Many people in the United States not only oppose gay marriage but gay couples adopting children because they worry about the long term effects on children. Moreover, while the gay lobby has scared 97% of heterosexual America from speaking the truth, many straight people will tell you quietly they don’t want to see public displays of a gay lifestyle shoved in their face for shock value, which many gays in America do to make a statement.
Topping off his gay skewed delegation, Obama decided neither he, First Lady Michelle Obama nor Vice President Joe Biden will grace Sochi with their presence. Boo, hoo! I’m sure Russian President Vladimir Putin and the rest of the world could care less about Obama’s gay antics and snub of the 2014 Winter Olympics. After all, for ever other country, the Olympics is about sports not sexuality.
Where is black America’s outrage over Obama’s largely white and gay US Olympic delegation? Blacks represent 13% of the US population compared to gays, who represent a slim 3%, and over 90% of blacks voted to elect Obama twice. For their slavish, messiah-like devotion to the first black President of the United States, where are the blacks in Obama’s largely gay and white delegation to Sochi? Nabors is the only black in the delegation.
Obama’s delegation mirrors his domestic views. He continues to ignore black Americans politically, doing zero to address their problems of greater unemployment, crime, and lack of education compared to whites.
Over and over in situations like the Olympics, Obamacare, Syria, and Iran, Obama demonstrates how unqualified and small he is for the job of President of the United States. Yet in the face of failure upon failure, it is astonishing how the left continues to prop Obama up. ABC News star Barbara Walters professed to CNN’s Piers Morgan that she thought Obama “was going to be the next messiah.” Because he is black? The color of his skin is the very reason Walters, the mainstream media and other Obama sycophants refuse to hold this president accountable to his record like his predecessors.
A few days ago, I jokingly tweeted: “If Obama said he was Jesus, the mainstream media would say, thank you Jesus.” I was right.
Instead of insulting Jesus Christ and elevating Obama to a pedestal to which he will never belong, liberals like Walters need to see him for the petty man he is.
