Liberals wanted U.S. swimmer Michael Phelps to give up the honor of carrying the American flag and leading his country’s athletes at the opening ceremony for the Rio Olympic games Friday night.

He’s the wrong color and the wrong sex.

Leading the pack of naysayers was W. Kamau Bell, host of CNN’s “United Shades of America.” In a CNN op-ed, he described the swimming sensation as a “tall, successful, rich white guy” who clearly didn’t “need the honor.”

“With 22 Olympic medals, you are already the most decorated athlete in Olympic history,” he said.

But American fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad is a different story.

“Muhammad carrying the flag would be much bigger than your one moment,” Bell writes. “It would be a symbol for our country in this moment when we are mostly known for one of the most contentious, controversial, scandal-ridden, hateful, xenophobic, jingoistic, and just generally unlikable presidential elections in recent memory. This is at a time when we could use some more symbols of unity and togetherness.”

Bell referred to Muhammad as “a one-stop inclusion shop due to her race, sex and religion. Phelps, on the other hand was something else entirely.

No offense, but right now America has enough tall, successful, rich white guys hogging the spotlight trying to make America great,” he said, in an obvious reference to Donald Trump.

How many liberals would disagree with the author?

“With 22 Olympic medals, you are already the most decorated athlete in Olympic history,” doesn't that kinda means he earned being able to carry the flag in the opening ceremony?

There is a certain distasteful streak in American liberals. Yes.

I rather like what it says about him. Your implied criticism is noted. His being as fed up as most of us are with this kind of bull**** is noted as well.

Maybe we just shouldn't have any white guys in the Olympics. Give all the minorities their chance to shine, after all they never had the opportunities the white guys had.

Olympics are supposed to be a non political event. I see the left has screwed that up. Figures.

Is that all you liberals got, to make this about "All"? I never said "All", there never is an "All" in anything.
Not all Nazis were bad people, I guess that discredits the entire holocaust huh?


These were in fact liberals saying this. It is liberal ideology.

There are two types of Progressive Liberals:

1. Socialists attempting to lie about what they are.

2. Useful Idiots who join up because they think it’s cool or they like a social issue (abortion, gay rights). But they don’t realize they are giving support to the most destructive political/economic ideology the world has ever seen.

A close examination of the governing platforms of both Socialism and Communism shows the absolute only difference between the two is Socialist try to claim they can function without a Totalitarian Dictatorship.

The problem with that is Socialism is so antithetical to human nature that people have to be forced to do it. This can only happen with an all powerful centralized government controlling everything AKA a Totalitarian Dictatorship.

They're supposed to be? They never really have been. And how, exactly, has the left screwed that up?

Please be very specific.

No it is not, it is some whiny kids on Tumblr. It is not representative of liberal ideology in any way. It is like saying Trump represents Conservative ideology. The same narcissism that fuels the SJW wankers on Tumblr is the same narcissism that fuels Trump.

You said 'liberals'. Not 'some', not 'these liberals', but 'liberals, directly implying all liberals. Don't try and weasel out of your own statement.

No, it's not 'liberal ideology', no matter how much you pout.

Yes, people tweeting something you disagree with is basically the holocaust. Great comparison devoid of hyperbole. :roll:

Step 1) Find something someone said you disagree with on the internet.
Step 2) Attribute that belief onto everyone from group X
Step 3) Whine

You said liberals. You didn't say some liberals.

And your comparison is absolute hyperbole.

It's not a liberal ideology.

They've been a political event since day one, what are you talking about? It's all about nationalistic dick waving.

I have come to believe that a significant part of the problem with said idiots is that their wiring causes them to truly believe that their ideology is not only supremely correct, but also correct to such a degree that dissent is irrational and intolerable. Compromise unthinkable. There is a prolific group in the Middle East, they affectionately call the "JV" team that shares similarities with their "mental wiring".

Both groups being a danger to civilization itself.
