Note: The phrase Chinese refers to the government and government only. The citizens are not at fault.
Out with this wuss Rogge. He refuses to do anything brave or courageous--or anything that might taint his relationship with the communists.
Underage gymnasts. "Well the Chinese government says they are 16. Problem solved."
Arresting elderly women for filing a protest request form. "As long as I'm not in jail, it's okay."
Hiding air quality statistics during the Olympics. "I don't care, I'll be inside doing nothing all day not facing any issues head on."
Usain Bolt dances after he sweeps the 100m and 200m. "I'll call for his suspension, we can't have such foul behavior in the Olympics. We all need to act more like the Chinese government; clean, fair, perfect, and controlling in every way."
What does he expect Chinese official paperwork to look like? The Chinese government can control everything and anything they want to. If you want real answers, do some DNA testing and use underground sources like the internet where there is substantial evidence against China. All Rogge has the balls to do is criticize Usain Bolt for celebrating his once in a lifetime experience. Meanwhile, China is replicating the 100 Flowers debacle by arresting anyone that desires to use the predetermined protest sites. It was all just a ploy to detain dissenters.
I don't know about you, but as incredible as the athletics were in these games, there was a terribly dark cloud hanging over the entire event.
HERE IS MY PLEA:
May we not fall for the slimy sleaze that the Chinese used to cover up everything wrong in their country (which is most everything). From evicting hundreds of thousands of people from their homes to letting hundreds of workers perish while working endless unsafe hours on Olympic construction; the Chinese have done unspeakably horrific things completely contrary of the Olympic ideal. Americans: I don't care where your politics are but red or blue, donkey of elephant, STAND TALL for EVERYTHING THIS COUNTRY EMBODIES. Freedom is powerful; please pay it the respect it deserves.
