The Enormous Dick Pound

Enormous Dick on Canada's First Nations:

We must not forget that 400 years ago, Canada was a land of savages, with scarcely 10,000 inhabitants of European origin, while in China, we're talking about a 5,000-year-old civilization.'

Note: Image above refers to what Dick is. Not what Dick's pounding.

That asshole is insufferable just like the whole IOC. They'll support a murderous regime like china while they deny women the same sports as men and think it's ok.

Lets hope the courts shut them down in 2011

Are these people crazed on cocaine? They can't seem to open their mouths these days without a torrent of unexamined nonsense spilling forth.

As much as it...paaaaiiiins...me to say it, I agree with Dante. I'll go further and hope I live long enough to see the Olympic Games put on hiatus for 20 years or so.

Notice who quickly these expensive, corrupt circuses fade from memory as soon as they're over. The debt however, hangs around for much longer than that.

How ludicrous. The IOC does not support "murderous" China. I could argue dante "supports" murderous China because he uses a Chinese-made computer to post.

Everyone wants to see human rights advance in China, how would denying the Olympics to China benefit the average citizen?

As for ti-guy's suggestion, oh yeah, let's punish the world's young athletes because the putz Pound made a foolish statement.

Dante said...

Tell it to Tibet that human rights are improving. Tell it to the victims of body parts trafficking.

Eleviating poverty in China will do more than anything in bringing basic human rights to china. If anything, we should support them by buying their goods.

How does evicting Chinese citizens from Beijing so that they the government could put on their show, help the average citizen?

Paul S said...

OK, according to you, using your cheap, made in China computer manufactured using sweatshop labor does nothing to support this "murderous regime" you so stenuously decry. Got it.

I like Dick Pound - his book a few years back was the best insider's account of the politics of the IOC that I've seen yet. However, his statement here is just baffling. Where the hell does he think the North American "savages" came from? They migrated here from Asia. Duh.

There are many more substantive competitions more amateur sport than just the Olympics.

The only people we'd be punishing are the couch potatoes.

wow. white privilege at its finest. I thought I was getting a snootful of that this weekend at a Con-Ed class where the instructor was blathering away about 'asians' to a room half-full of non-anglo recent immigrants. It was embarrassing and really hard to correct politely as she was oblivious as to what was coming out of her mouth.

Nice to know the Olympics is really up on its senior staff getting that 'diversity and inclusiveness' training so they can be role models to the rest of the world.
