The case of the German girl is sad. She should not have been condemned because of the political choice of her man.

However, the case of the Greek is rather funny. She needs first to look at the Greek Dna, before making fun of Africans. Actually, Greeks are lighter version of Morrocans; with fat lips and fuzzy hair.

Political correctness is bullsh1t. It is better to be frank with your opinion rather than be a hypocrite.

The south African whites during the apartheid were racist. But atleast they are honest, if they hate somebody for their skin colour then they hate somebody for their skin colour.

Many countries are equally racist but they are diplomatic and politically correct. The world is not a black and white place, if you constantly scream victim mentality than the problem is with you. Either hit back or shut up.

I say... **** Political Correctness.
Olympics is a worthles puppet show, its long since lost the spirit of sport event.
It WAS meant to connect all the people in spirit of sports competition - not to alienate them because of thier views.

And the most fun thing: PC is only applied to west. East is a holy cow, anything they say is ok.
Even if it's German neo-nazi : its a ******* sport. Get over it. I dont care if somebody burns books after winning gold medal. For the time of the olympics he/she should be untouchable - as long as he/she doesn't use sport as propaganda poster.

A ******* embarassment.

It just says how West was turned into a bunch of pussies by retarded socialist propaganda.

Agree with seasparrow, getting thrown out from the Olympics just coz your BF/ GF has extremist views is bullsh1t. And whats the harm with a few racist jokes, I am an Indian and coloured and I laugh hard at the jokes cracked on Indians. Seems like people forgot their sense of humour.

The motto of the Olympics was to take part, now it is to dope and win at any cost whatsoever. Is it any wonder then that the Olympics is getting hijacked by political lunatics of all directions (left, right, center)?

Take a joke as a joke, dont turn it into calamity. Extremism in any shade is bad.

In the case of the german girl she should be able to sue their olympic commitee for slander. To assume she has certain political views without any shred of evidence is outrages and then on top of that taking radical action.


As for the greek girl I don't see how her joke was racist at all, it was merely implying the increasing number of africans in Greece which is a reflection of the countries immigration policies rather than being an insult aimed at black people.

Political correctness is our times biggest opponent to democracy.

Even if both girls support a right wing political party, those are official political parties that participate in both counries elections in accordance with democratic values.

In that case maybe those american athletes that support the republican party should be expelled which should be about half of their team, since the republicans have some radical views on certain issues such as immigration policies, birth control and abortion

Thanks Mike. In my opinion political correctness will lead us to internal wars within our societies. The real question the citizens have to answer is : Globalization or National states ? Melting pot or Unity through diversity ?

The world is transforming and it will not change smoothly as many believe.

@ brahmaputra_river

Theres a lot of **** going around - but if there is a group of people (participants and public of the Olympic games) who:
1. Agree to compete against each other on the sports arena
2. Agree on single set of rules during Games
3. Agree not to discriminate by any standard
ect.

Then they agree on these for duration of the Games - and these rules oughtta be saint. So as long as person does nothing offensive during Games (and I by Games I mean on the pitch, in front of people, not in private commentary) - THERES NO moral or legal justification to prevent them from participation. Else you'd have to ban whole representations from multiple countries JUST TO BE FAIR.


So it's not even a matter of racism.
It's just a plain childish act of trying to wash thier hands off this by somebody responsible.

There was absolutely nothing racist about the Greek athlete's tweet.


For those that don't know what racism is
rac·ism [rey-siz-uhm] Show IPA
noun
1.
a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
2.
a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.
3.
hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.

Now tell me how that definition applies to "With so many Africans in Greece, at least the West Nile mosquitoes will eat home made food!

Those cry babies who are screaming racism for the above post should visit WAFF for one day. If a joke on mosquitoes sucking blood is racist than entire WAFF is racist, the kind of jokes/ banter/ abuse that get hurled here would start world war 3 if politicians take it seriously.
