    Greece expels Olympic athlete over racist tweets - Yahoo! News

    What'd she even say that was so bad? You have to read half the article to even get to it. Anyways, it's b.s. that people think they can rob years of a person's work for a word. This is just pathetic and it is the left that wants this nonsense thought police power.

    Personally, I don't care if she did say something racist. She still earned her chance to compete. But what she said, I don't even know if you can consider it racist. That's how bad this BS has gotten.

    Think about it. Who the fuck wakes up in the morning and says well that person said something I didn't like. I'm not going to let her compete in the Olympics. I don't care if she's worked hard for years. I'm a fat fucking bureaucrat slob that speaks for the ignorant masses and that's all the fuck that matters. What kind of low life loser do you have to be to think not only you have earned that type of power, but that you should use it? It's fucking pathetic.

    So people are defending racists now... how pathetic.

    Look, she spoke out, as is her right. She can claim it is a joke, but she cant run from the comments and her support for the Greek Neo Nazi party.

    The Greek Olympic Committee has a code of conduct, so they reacted and kicked her out. I believe they did the right thing. She brought politics into the Olympics, which is a big no no. She must suffer the consequences.

    And "European thought police"? come on, it was the Greek at best.....

    1. Would you like to lose your livelihood based on a tweet? A tweet which you later apologized for?

    2. Where in that article did it say she was in the Greek Neo Nazi party?

    3. Even if she was in any party, that is of no consequence. She is allowed to be in whatever political party she wants to be in. Last I checked, communists are competing in the Olympics. Soviet Communists killed 20 million Jews.

    4. What code of conduct are you referring to? Do you even know or are you just talking out of your ass?

    5. An Olympian can speak on political issues (not that this was one).

    6. It may have been the Greeks that banned her, but this is a European problem. GB just spent a bunch of money trying the soccer player John Terry for saying a fucking word in the heat of battle. A fucking word. Give me a fucking break. You don't turn anyone's life upside down b/c they said a word you don't like. Even fucking children know that.

    7. I don't give a fuck you think is racist. Half that fucking Olympic village is racist for all I know. Nobody should be so intimidated to speak their mind. The court of public opinion is more than sufficient to tell people they are off. Ripping Olympic dreams over a "joke" is b.s. and it is thought policing. That's the fucking definition of thought policing jack ass. 'I don't like what you said, I'm going to severely punish you.'
