Note to all the athletes representing Team USA in PyeongChang right now: there is NO medal for winning the social justice woke competition of the Olympics. That’s not going to stop them from trying, apparently.

We’ve already had Adam Rippon and his unofficial biographer Christine Brennan try to prove their social wokeness by highlighting how much Rippon hates Vice President Mike Pence. Skier Gus Kenworthy decided to join Rippon in the social justice competition.

News flash, Kenworthy… it’s 2018.

Also noted by Twitter:

But Rippon and Kenworthy are going to have to try much, much harder to beat speed skater Shani Davis, who took a huge points lead at the opening ceremony. Davis was one of two athletes who received 4 votes to be the flag bearer and lead Team USA in the opening ceremony. Erin Hamlin, luge athlete, also received 4 votes. Per Olympic rules, a coin toss was the tiebreaker. Hamlin was the winner of the coin toss. Davis played the race card.

And yes, that is a screenshot of the tweet because Davis then bravely stood on the courage of his convictions and protected his Twitter account.

Agreeing with Davis was that bastion of fairness and authority on race relations (/sarc), Jesse Jackson.

So, if Davis had won the coin toss, would it have been sexist instead of racist? Inquiring minds want to know….

Regardless, Hamlin led the team out and was proud to do so.

But who decided to go pout in a corner?

Yes, Davis decided to skip the ceremony because HE didn’t get the top honor. It’s like a kid who refuses to go to another child’s birthday party because there won’t be any presents for him there. What a terrible example of poor sportsmanship. But he now has a sizable lead in the social justice wokeness standings! Who is going to try and retake the lead, and suck all the fun out of these Olympic Games? You know someone is going to try…

    I understand the there was a tie for the vote for National Flag bearer and, under the rules, a coin toss occurred to break the deadlock thus Mr Davis lost out to an equally deserving female athlete. What can be fairer than a random selection based on chance? That Mr Jackson wants ‘a more appropriate system to make such a significant determination’ only demonstrates his bigotry and ignorance of sporting protocols. What could be more appropriate meaning fairer than a coin toss – just like the start of tennis matches, football matches and a myriad of other sporting contests around the world?

    I am reminded of the Judgement of Solomon – I believe Mr Jackson knows a little about the Bible – and Solomon’s decision in regard to the claim by two women to be the mother of a baby. He ordered that the baby be divided in two, leading to the real mother offering the baby to the other women thus displaying her own grace and love for her child. Neither Jackson or Davis have displayed any grace or common-sense. Davis’ petulance is that of an entitled toddler and Jackson’s contribution is simply opportunistic and stupid. Perhaps he would like to see Davis and Hamlin wrestle for the honour with the honour going to the athlete able to pin the other as in World Championship Wrestling, best two out of three falls? Or three out of five, or five out of seven falls????? Of course that might enrage Feminists Social Justice Warriors on account of the disparity in muscle mass of the two athletes. As a famous philosopher [Bugs Bunny] once said “What maroons!”

      Well don’t forget that the USOC intends to make the team “look more like America.”

      Any bets on whether they do the same for the SUMMER olympics?

      Yeah, right!

  • Brian Brandt says:

    Congratulations to Erin Hamlin on carrying the flag.

    (But really, isn’t luge just falling uncontrollably down a hill in a little car?)

    “We promise to take part in these Olympic Games, respecting and abiding by the rules and in the spirit of fair play. … We do this, for the glory of sport, for the honor of our teams and in respect for the Fundamental Principles of Olympism.”

  • Gridlock says:

    The Olympics have joined the NFL as “Socially Woke Things I No Longer Care About”.

    I refuse to turn on my TV and be lectured by some punk about how racist/sexist/*phobic I am. If that is what sports has come to, there is always wood to split out in the yard.

    Per Olympic rules
    Note it’s per USA team rules. It’s not Olympics-wide.

    What a terrible example of poor sportsmanship.
    You know, there was a day when the Olympics was all about sportsmanship. Not so much anymore.
    In the olden days (before they allowed professional athletes to compete because … win!) such a display would have had the coach sending the athlete home – regardless of his previous success.
    (And, I have to admit, I’m now hoping this guy blows it and loses big time. Maybe even ruining his career. Just so he can serve as an example.)

    And I have to give kudos to Jackson, actually. He didn’t demand they make the black guy the flag-bearer, he demanded they change the system. Yeah, it’s faint praise, but it’s better than I expected.

    Oh, and I haven’t watched the Olympics in a long time, really. Because of stuff like this I just don’t care, anymore.

  • Yeah, but couldn’t the U.S. team actually march in—you know like a team. They look like a drunken mob leaving a sporting event rather than athletes about to compete in one. And worse still, they did so to that arrogant Gangnam-style music. How grossly inappropriate! I’m sure there are millions of Koreans who loathe the idea that it’s regard as their chief cultural contribution to world music—their equivalent to Handel’s “Messiah.”

    The best Olympic entrance by Americans came in 1936 in Berlin, where its team, almost alone among the participating nations, failed to give special honor to Nazi Germany and Hitler.
    The opening ceremony was held at the Berlin Olympic Stadium. A flyover by the German airship Hindenburg flying the Olympic flag behind it was featured early in the opening ceremonies. After the arrival of Hitler and his entourage, the parade of nations proceeded, each nation with its own unique costume. Some nations’ athletes purposefully gave the Nazi salute as they passed Hitler. Others gave the Olympic salute (a similar one, given with the same arm), or a different gesture entirely, such as hats-over-hearts, as the United States and China did. All nations lowered their flags as they passed the Führer, save the United States. (The United States doing this was explained later as an army regulation.) Writer Thomas Wolfe, who was there, described the opening as an “almost religious event, the crowd screaming, swaying in unison and begging for Hitler. There was something scary about it; his cult of personality.”

    Our team should have insisted that “America, The Beautiful” be played instead. Rather than the hedonistic debauch of Gangnam, we would have music infinitely better.
    O beautiful for spacious skies,
    For amber waves of grain,
    For purple mountain majesties
    Above the fruited plain!
    America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
    And crown thy good with brotherhood
    From sea to shining sea!

    O beautiful for pilgrim feet,
    Whose stern impassion’d stress
    A thoroughfare for freedom beat
    Across the wilderness!
    America! America! God mend thine ev’ry flaw,
    Confirm thy soul in self-control,
    Thy liberty in law!

    O beautiful for heroes proved In liberating strife,
    Who more than self their country loved,
    And mercy more than life!
    America! America! May God thy gold refine
    Till all success be nobleness,
    And ev’ry gain divine!

    O Beautiful for patriot dream
    That sees beyond the years
    Thine alabaster cities gleam,
    Undimmed by human tears!
    America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
    And crown thy good with brotherhood
    From sea to shining sea!

    But then this is the Olympics. The moral rot that marked the 1936 Olympics has had over eighty years to penetrate even deeper. It’s no longer about sportsmanship. Like Gangnam, it’s about egotism and self. That’s why, in a twisted sense, this self-promoting Shani Davis is an appropriate flag bearer. He does represent what the Olympics are fast becoming.
