Gee -- if they don't want negative publicity, maybe they should address the blatant homophobia in the host country for the upcoming Games.

Despots like putin never understand the concept of free speech. The IOC can't do a thing to stem the international criticism of their primitive stance on gay rights.

I hope we can dissuade sponsors from pouring money into these games; it might help the committee be more careful about putting them in repressive regimes. I'd say it might teach russia a lesson, but weasels like putin just blame everyone else for their failures.

"The symptoms of fascist thinking are colored by environment and adapted to immediate circumstances. But always and everywhere they can be identified by their appeal to prejudice and by the desire to play upon the fears and vanities of different groups in order to gain power."
Henry A. Wallace

Always, and everywhere.
