Good luck with that, Pooh Bear.

....which reminds me, I need to buy a drum of Red Bull and 6489 Taiwanese and Tibetan flags so I can make a giant mosaic of Kiryu Coco in the South Park art style.

I could get behind a movement to send Olympic athletes Winnie the Poo stuffed animals.

It's weird when you think human rights are political.
It's weird when you know you violate human rights so terribly that you preemptively tell people not to talk about it.

The North Taiwanese leader sure has thin skin.
Maybe he should adopt a mud grass horse.

China: OMG U.S.A., such unwarranted drama, you take care of your house first. Why you gotta be like that?

Also China: don't you dare say shiat when you are over here. Hurt my fee fees. We kock you out!

If enough athletes all spoke out in a united front, to where their removal would basically make holding events impossible, there is not a damn thing China could do.

I'm pretty sure the Olympics would still go on, with only polite, law-abiding nations participating. North Korea would finally win more gold medals than the USA and never shut up about it.

It's weird when literally every other country goes along with it because you have money and they are afraid of hurting your fee fees.

Shaggy_C: Prank Call of Cthulhu: You'd think the people who started a global pandemic because they couldn't stop stuffing bat and pangolin tartare into their gobs might be a little more contrite.

Yeah, why can't they be normal and eat the decaying, bloodied flesh of hormone-laden cows, pigs, and chickens instead? Not like those dead animals ever transmit any diseases.


Weird spot to "whatabout" right there.

Yeah, go ahead and dare about bunch of competitive types not to do something as basic as standing up for human rights. What will they do? fark all nothing is what. Arrest or send everyone home? Then no farking Olympics in China ever again. How about lay off the authoritarian bullshiat, or stop hosting international events?

I believe we shouldn't say anything about child marriage in the middle east, or child sex trafficking in SE Asia, or child genital mutilation in Africa, because it's xenophobic lol.

Grow up dude.

Perhaps if you're still in the money earning stage, don't talk politics. Once you reach fark you money, say what you will. There's plenty of movies and recipes to talk about before you get to politics.

It wasn't criticism, it was false equivalency.

Reminds me of when my neice asked me where poo comes from. I told her as best I could, without being too gross, but she was still horrified. She said, "What about Tigger and Eeyore?"

You think the IOC is going to stand up to China?  Based on recent precedent where they awarded China 2 Olympic Games in the space of 14 years?
 
2022-01-23 8:24:11 AM  
At least Pooh is being helpful and reminding everyone.

I'm the US if you even suggest that criticizing certain political parties will bring forth wrath and ruin it brings forth wrath and ruin. We're so efficient we skip the step where you actually need to criticize the policy itself.
 
2022-01-23 8:26:14 AM  
It's funny that wanting to treat China like the Soviets is how virtually all Americans want them treated, except the wealthy. So we don't. It's a winning campaign for any politician but China pays our bills so no one will touch it. Even Trump stopped now that the Chinese money train is flowing for him again.

North Korea isn't competing.  North Korea forced their athletes to stay home in 2020 (claiming covid) then the IOC responded by suspending the North Korean Olympic committee for this games.  North Koreans could theoretically do the compete under Olympic flag thing Russians have been doing but the North Korean government is not allowing that to happen.

I was riffing on the old South Park where people are mortified by the Japanese killing dolphins and whales via crazed kamikaze-style attacks - "fark you whale!!!!!". At the end of the episode they start doing the same to western food animals - "fark you cow! Fark you chicken!" and the dad exclaims "ah, now they're normal like us."

When you don't eat animals, cannibals, bat chompers, and hamburger lovers are all just different points on the same sliding scale.

According to quite a few people I know, any time an animal dies for a human it's a rights abuse. It's all just opinions, right? Everyone is equal in every choice we make and no person is better than any other, vaccinated or not, murderer or saint, all the same?

"Any behavior or speech that is against the Olympic spirit, especially against the Chinese laws and regulations, are also subject to certain punishment."

Certain punishment? Care to specifically define that before people from all over the world come to your country? Because that shiat sounds like a threat and a good reason not to show up.

Fark China, and fark their Winnie-the-Pooh-ass "leader."

I'm not sure why the Biden administration is sending American athletes to Beijing, given that China not only didn't assure their safety, but in fact threatened them should they displease China or that Winnie-the-Pooh-ass "leader."

If dealing with COVID-19 for the last two years has taught me anything, it's taught me that being averse to unnecessary risk is not a bad idea. This is an unnecessary risk.
 
2022-01-23 8:50:35 AM  
I would be entirely happy with Canada saying the conditions placed on the athletes are unacceptable and Canada will not be sending any.  We shouldn't have gone to Russia either.

All we're really doing is enriching corrupt IOC members, and giving propaganda opportunities to evil shiats.  All so our athletes can compete under a specific banner with five rings on it?

Give it up.  Call Greece, set up a permanent site.  Get as close to the name 'Olympics' as you can without handing a win to the IOC in court.
