The 2022 Olympic Clown-Car Circus — Get Woke Go Broke

There’s a lot that could be said about this, but I’m just going to mock a few things, laugh, and give it a rest.

Foremost, I find it delicious in a schadenfreude sort of way.

I hadn’t seen a bit of it until a trip for breakfast the other day to a sports pub where they had it on while nobody was watching. Yesterday, same thing in an afternoon pub I go to for socialization with mainly Euro expats but otherwise ok dudes. Olympics on the TV, nobody watching, nobody talking about it, nobody giving a fuck or runny shit.

One simple question one might ask about WINTER GAMES is, does it snow?

Doesn’t matter. We’ll just make it. (Vomit)

There may be a couple of other decent ones since, but the last Winter Games to be held in a thoroughly appropriate place was Lillehammer, Norway, 28 years ago (1994).

Beijing’s annual precipitation.

So, Beijing gets a heavy frost sometimes in February and winter in general.

This is so clown-car circus that it’s difficult to make comment or commentary, because it’s fucking ridiculous on its face.

Somewhere, sometime, someplace a committee sat down and decided to award the 2022 Winter Games to a place where it doesn’t fucking snow. With a straight face.

If that’s not a caricature of a planet who’s civilization is in utter decline, I don’t know what is. The only thing that could make it more ridiculous and funny is if they didn’t even make the snow and all competitors and other participants simply identified as being in a winter wonderland.

Alright, writing this post is already tedious. Here’s some laughs.

Beijing bust: Low ratings, bad food, quarantine woes plague Winter Games

The 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics have seen plenty of crashes already on both the snow and ice, but the most spectacular wipeout of all may be the games themselves.

U.S. television ratings have been historically bad after four nights of competition, putting NBC on pace for the lowest-rated winter Olympics ever as viewers tune out in droves amid calls to boycott the games over Chinese human-rights abuses and censorship.

Coinciding with the ratings debacle are reports of bad food, crying athletes, poor facilities, and in what may be an Olympic first, a ski ramp located in an industrial park beside cooling towers from a decommissioned steel mill.

“You’ve got, like, squalor,” said Dan Gainor, vice president of Free Speech America at the conservative Media Research Center. “They don’t even have snow. It’s all manufactured. It’s a joke. And a fair number of Americans think we shouldn’t be there.”

Well, conservatives and Republicans are just as fucking stupid as leftists and Democrats if they think this is a moral issue. THERE’S NO FUCKING SNOW, DIMWITS. Plus, the issue with China is not their best-in-the-world human rights abuses. It’s that they’re a culture of ants, bees, and Borg and you can’t hide that level of being pathetic as organisms.

The 2022 Beijing Olympics Have Been a Massive Dud

The 2022 Winter Olympics have been a complete bust so far. From human rights concerns, to COVID, to fake snow, to almost everything else, the Games have been a mess. I’m not sure there’s a way to salvage the “Forgotten Games” at this point.

Maybe the U.S. can make a run in curling again to make this entire exercise feel worth it.

At least they mentioned fake snow.

NBC Admits Genocide Games Major Ratings Bust: ‘For Us, It’s Been Difficult. There’s No Way Around This’

“It’s no secret that athletes in masks, venues without spectators, so much of the passion and excitement, those great moments of Olympic athletes hugging their family and friends and spouses and partners, so much of that magic is just out of necessity not present.”

Bevacqua didn’t appear to address widespread public disgust at NBC for glorifying China and sidestepping the CCP’s numerous human rights atrocities.

No, fuck face, none of this was “out of necessity” and it never was for a microsecond.

    How in the world do they produce enough snow for the 9.3 women’s and 10.4 men’s skiing event?

    I will never watch or patronize anything that has to do with the Olympic games, summer, winter or anything. Completely corrupt.

      Especially if you’re old enough to remember how cool it used to be.
