Voula Papachristou sets Olympic record for racist tweeting

July 25 the Greek athlete Voula Papchirstou was expelled from the Greek Olympic team by the Greek National Olympic Committee for publishing a racially insensitive tweet. She wrote the following:
With so many Africans in Greece .. at least the West Nile mosquitoes .. will eat homemade dinner!

If I were a West Nile mosquito in Greece I'd probably pass on the homemade dinner.

If you take a brief look at Olympic history you will notice that the International Olympic Committee banned South Africa in 1964, the same year North Korea first participated. In other words, apartheid wrong, communism good.

I took the time to read through the latest version of the Olympic Charter published by the IOC in 2011. The following sections stand out:

Under the supreme authority and leadership of the International Olympic Committee,
the Olympic Movement encompasses organisations, athletes and other persons who
agree to be guided by the Olympic Charter.
Any form of discrimination with regard to a country or a person on grounds of race,
religion, politics, gender or otherwise is incompatible with belonging to the Olympic
The mission of the IOC is to promote Olympism throughout the world and to lead the
Olympic Movement.
The National Olympic Committees' role is to promote the fundamental principles and values of Olympism in their countries, in particular, in the fields of sport and education.

This is basically a reproduction of what I call the Cultural Marxist commandment: Thou shalt not discriminate based on race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or age.

Obviously sexual orientation is omitted to avoid an upset with the Arabic world, but an Islamic athlete would be wise not to test how serious they are about the 'or otherwise' clause.

In order for a nation to participate it needs a National Olympic Committee, and each NOC will be under the supreme authority of the Cultural Marxist IOC.

There are 10,960 athletes participating in the London Olympics, 6098 men and 4862 women. All of them have to abide by these Cultural Marxist speech codes or risk being expelled. And that's only where the fun starts, if they're unfortunate enough to win a medal they will have to abide by these speech codes for the rest of their lives because their medals can be stripped at any time for improper conduct.

Who and what is this International Olympic Committee? Wikipedia has a list that contains each member, and it's a peculiar mix of royalty and retired athletes, who apparently engage in censorship as a past time activity, with the full support of the Western mainstream media and Cultural Marxist governments.
