Team USA?: USA Hoops Dancers Wear Long Pants in Deference to Islam, Iran; Coach K, Dhimmi

There’s been a lot of hype about the USA National Basketball Team playing Iran in the World Basketball Championship. Tuesday, Team USA beat Iran, but with the PC pandering of “our” team, it’s as if we lost. Sadly, Team USA Coach Mike Krzyzewski and players were all too dhimmi-esque regarding Iran. Barf. Then, the cheerleaders had to wear long pants to respect Islam and Iran. Double barf.

First there’s Coach K. Imagine if it was 1940, and he had restricted himself to this kind of wimpitude when playing Hitler’s German team:

The main interest in the Iran game comes from local journalists trying to hype it because of the political tensions between the countries, but Krzyzewski downplayed that.

“This is a sporting event,” he said. “We have respect for Iran. I actually played in Iran in the 1970s when I was on the U.S. Armed Forces team. I have great feelings for their country. They’re sportsmen and so are we.

They didn’t put the cheerleaders in burkas?

Guess I won’t watch that game.

I’ll hold off tuning in until the Team Ibiza vs. Team Brazil half time show.

The usual Muslim 'don't offend us' garbage that is always one-way - and the U.S. always obeys. This nonsense of accommodating the hyper-restrictive 'rules' of some backward Islamic dictatorship is ridiculous. We shouldn't even be there.

How about the Muzzies wear string bikinis in deference to us? (they'd have do do some serious hair defoliating first, however)

Well, when in Rome, I guess. So, we should force their teams to dress like ghetto kids when/if they play in the U.S. (not holding my breath).

Game already took place..yesterday. You didn't miss much. Only real question was how big a margin Iran was going to lose by.

As a Christian, I support modesty in feminine attire.

Clothing, afterall, was intended to conceal, not to reveal.

However, when modesty does not come from a truly repentant heart, it is nonsense.

And when modesty is imposed by a fear from a bloody satanic death cult, it is tyranny.

As for us Christians, “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty!”

Just wait until Islam has to go up against the Gays and Lesbians in the court of Liberal opinion. Then, Islam will have to deal with atheist communists (Which is the liberals true credo).

Islam is a one way street in the wrong direction and no way to turn around.

We have our cheerleaders put on long pants in respect for them. They piss on the graves of thousands by pushing their desires to build a war memorial at ground zero.

I'm not sure what to think about this. I don't like women in revealing clothing prancing around in Prime Time TV. If this were the first half of this century in America, they'd have to cover up too. Asking female entertainers to dress modestly is a far cry from asking women in general to dress in head to toe burkas to subjugate them. And by saying this, I'm in no way agreeing with Iran's policies toward women. The Iranian government is savage and medieval (although the Iranian people are probably some of the most liberal in the region).

I'm old enough to remember the America that was #1 on the world stage. I truly hate this submissiveness sh*t that's become commonplace.

Now host nation Turkey also has taken it a step further, ordering the Red Foxes cheerleading brigade from the Ukraine out of the arena when its team plays.

“Just wait until Islam has to go up against the Gays and Lesbians in the court of Liberal opinion.”

I doubt it will happen. Both groups share the same agenda (to destroy Judeo-Christian ethics in the United States), which is why they give each other a pass. As an example, Elton John uses visuals of burning Christian churches in his shows. He would NEVER use visuals of burning mosques. That is because the Muslims share the same non-tolernace of Christianity as he does.

So when is the US officially announcing sharia? When the quislings have allowed the muslims to build their Al Aqsa New York and made ground zero a no-go area for nonmuslims?

Were they checked for clitorectomies?

My daughter has played against Dearborn High School in volleyball. Dearborn has several Muslims on the team. They wear baggy sweatsuits with an oversized volleyball jersey over them and the hajib on there heads. It's quite amusing to watch.

> There is nothing modest about a burka.

That’s because it is the emblem of shameless tyranny.

Christian Modesty is quite a bit different, being a matter of the heart, not imposed by threat of force.

Long hair, loose-fitting clothes, sometimes a head covering, as some of the more conservative sisters wear.

My wife wears a head covering, and it’s not because I impose it. Only one of my eight daughters wears a head covering full time. The others wear it as the Spirit moves them. They wear loose fitting skirts and dresses.

They are often complimented for their modesty.

No matter what you wear, people will look at you and size you up. It’s good to think about what they will see when they look.

But I am not for imposing a standard of modesty. That is something that must come from the heart.

Why...cause they’re naked underneath?
