WH Sends Gay Athletes To Russia For Diversity

From The Hill:

White House: Openly gay athletes in Olympics delegation highlight US diversity

By Justin Sink | December 18, 2013

A White House spokesman said Wednesday that the selection of its presidential delegation to the Olympics — which features two openly gay female athletes — was intended to highlight the nation’s diversity… "In the selection of this delegation, we are sending the message that the United States is a diverse place," White House press secretary Jay Carney said.

Actually, if Obama really wanted to ‘highlight diversity’ he would send along the Duck Dynasty patriarch. But diversity is the last thing the left wants.

By the way, will Obama send some gays to negotiate with the Iranians, to make a similar point?

The delegation includes tennis champion and gay rights activist Billie Jean King and hockey player Caitlin Cahow, both of whom are openly gay.

Obama is also sending Janet Napolitano, to really drive home his message.

Carney sidestepped questions about whether the administration’s decision not to send a member of the first family or a former president to Sochi was intended to rankle Russian President Vladimir Putin. "The president’s schedule does not allow him to travel to Sochi," Carney said.

He must have a busy golf weekend planned.

Last week, Human Rights First sent a letter to Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett arguing “the selection of the members of the official U.S. delegations for the opening and closing ceremonies of the Sochi Olympics is an important opportunity to signal to Russia and the world the priority the Obama administration places on equality and human dignity…

If Mr. Obama really cares so much about sending signals about equality and human dignity, he wouldn’t have shaken hands with Raul Castro.

    When you’re the nerd of the World, poking a bully in the eye may not be a good idea.

  2. Thank, Obama!

    Hey Hey Ho Ho We’re Queer and We’re Here seems like a really bad idea

    Obama is severely handicapping the US Olympic Team by adding a heavy weight of politicizing our countries greatest athletes.

    Obama has turned the focus of sports to be of sexual content.

    This gesture will have the effect of an added physiological and psychological pressure on US Olympic athletes no matter what their gender or religious beliefs are being placed with an unpredictable pressure to interrupt their focus and zoning on their performance.

    Meditation on their performances may with no warning be interrupted by all ready predicted and unpredicted hostilities, name calling, even violence in one of the most competitive events in the world where countries all gather.

    In no matter what form the harm takes, Obama is setting up a giant obstacle that the entire US Olympic team will have to deal with.

    Is this why Obama nor vp Biden or any US Official will be attending?

    Billie Jean King is not even well known in today’s current world. And as an athlete and coach she should know better than to make sports be more about sexual orientation than individual or team performance. Shame on her wanting to be more known as lesbian than a tennis player who played back before people were drug tested.

    This will further endanger our US Troops, Missionaries, based in the middle-east looking for an excuse to protest.

    Along with Billy Jean King who should know better than to turn this world event into a sexual statement whether she avoids the subject or worse speaks about it in a speech at the event, any US Olympian team member gay or not gay who kisses or grabs the butt of a teammate can have an effect on US performances. It would lead to isolation, when gay Olympians and sports champions are not isolated in this country.

    The Olympics theme of pro-gay.

    I thought the wisdom was not to have sex before a game or event.

    If Barry really wanted to make a point he’d have gone himself and killed two birds with one stone.

    So when Reagan said “Tear down this wall” it was provocative, simplistic, and childish….

    But when Obama sends homosexuals to a country that got sick and tired of their constant assault on Christianity, this proves how brave he is.

    I don’t care what your sexual genetics are or what color your skin is or your your race, or what have you. But “diversity” is killing America because what it *really* is about, is mass-hysteria by employers (encouraged by certain tax benefits?) to fill jobs with the least-qualified people, versus training and hiring the best of the best. Even a totally-inexperienced person should be hired, based on his or her own natural skills, willingness to learn, and true passion for the job and to serve customers. It should have ZERO to do with ethnicity or sexual preference, neither of which should be a consideration one way or the other.

    Governmental offices, whether federal, state, or local, are crammed by minorities, solely because they are minorities, or because their sexuality may not be considered to be mainstream.
