Should the U.S. boycott the Russian Olympics, along with vodka and caviar? (poll)
South Florida Sun-Sentinel ^ | August 14, 2013

Gay rights groups, and others, are calling on the United States to boycott the upcoming Olympic Winter Games in Sochi because of recent Russian legislation that criminalizes support for gays and lesbians.

Yeah, the Russian honchos are definitely homophobic buffoons. That means you, Vladimir.

Why boycott? It’s not like they invaded Afghanistan of something.

I seriously doubt my daughter is going to give up her Russian vodka over some homosexual propaganda.

All the more reason we should be there, to support them in the brave fight against the decline of Western Civilization. In this cause, I stand with Russia.

No. This may be the first The Olympics I will watch since the 1998 The Olympics.

Once again, a phony poll where any response could be interpreted as being supportive of the practice of homosexuality. No thanks.

A while back I read an article about some gay bar where they poured Stoli in the gutter in protest. Take that, Russia, I imported and paid for your vodka now I won’t drink it!

And Stoli is a gay right supporter to boot.

Yeah, the Russian honchos are definitely homophobic buffoons.

Phobic = fearful. They don't FEAR queers. They only detest their behavior, like any normal man.

HOMOSEXUAL, because there's nothing GAY about it.

The is outrageous! America's homosexuals have every right to rape young Russian boys. Anyone who disagrees is a homophobe and must be punished.

Can’t help but notice that this whole survey is bullsh*t and every response indicates, at least, that the responder approves of the terms of the survey as written.

That is to say, there’s no response which says, “No, this whole idea is a lot of childish nonsense dreamt up by idiots.”

The best thing that could happen:

* The occupant at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue buckles under so-called pressure and announces a boycott of the 2014 Games.

* We, the American people then inform the IOC that athletes who choose to compete from the United States WILL be in attendance. (I’m sure that will be most of them)

* We raise whatever funding is needed to send them. as well as funding for an Internet broadcast network (cheaper than you think, these days).

* Then we sue for the rights to broadcast the 2014 Winter Olympics games if NBC pulls out.

It would be the most embarrassing moment for the unmentionable since being slapped down trying to host the 2016 games in Chicago. In fact, it would be the equal or better than the Hilter/Jesse Owens pr nightmare.

Wish I liked vodka and carviar or I’d buy some to celebrate straightness.

Whatever happened to a simple “Yes” or “No”.

Wish someone would do a poll that asks whether we should boycott the Olympics because Putin continues to make BO look like the complete idiot and fool that he is. After all, that is probably what this is all about, but they are using the Gay issue as smoke and mirrors.

Because of the level of the stink raised over the clown who wore the BO mask at the fair in Missouri you can only imagine what BO would like to do to Putin.
