For the LGBT Community, Gus
Kenworthy´s Olympics Loss Is Still a Big Win

Time Magazine, by Sean Gregory

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 2/18/2018 11:17:43 AM

Pyeongchang - The moment, when it happened, felt routine to American slopestyle skier Gus Kenworthy, who along with figure skater Adam Rippon is the only openly gay male Winter Olympian to ever compete for the United States. Matthew Wilkas, Kenworthy’s boyfriend, gave Kenworthy a good-luck kiss before a qualifying run on Sunday in South Korea. “That was like a peck,” Wilkas, who wore a “USGay” t-shirt to the event, tells TIME afterwards from the bottom of the slopestyle course at the Phoenix Snow Park. “We should have made out in front of people.” Kenworthy didn’t know the TV cameras caught

He finished Dead Last in last night´s event. He even skipped the final jump. You aren´t at the Olympics to make a political statement, but to perform your best.

His screaming mother, waving a rainbow flag, was also a nice touch. She and the boyz made quite a threesome.

Johnny Weir was the first gay skater to perform at the Olympics. He just didn´t get into the face of the viewers like Rippon is doing. Rippon is the first gay activist skater to be in the Olympics, but not the first gay skater.

Why do these gay people feel the ´compulsion´ to display their attitudes to the public and to basically shove it in our face ? It is unfathomable to me. To Reply #7, I believe it was Scott Hamilton, but he didn´t flaunt his gender bias, was a courteous gentleman, great skater, extremely likeable person, and excellent Media host. Lastly, TIME magazine sucks and belongs where you find it, in Doctor´s offices, where sick peple can read their biased, liberal garbage. Just my personal opinion.

You want to know why a backlash is coming for homosexuals? All you have to do is watch the IN YOUR FACE garbage NBC is foisting on its audience. Can anything be more disgusting than watching two bearded men kiss? Well, yes, NBC is more disgusting for making this Olympics all about the wonderfulness of abnormal people and their abnormal sexuality. And, this idiot writer is worse for trying to make those two seem normal.

No it is not a big win.

I think the first Olympic ice skater was the first gay skater. All of the previous skaters knew to just skate your best and people would enjoy your ability and pretend that everything else was cool.

#7 you forgot about Brian Boitano. He won the gold in 1988. In the link below it states that he "won the gold medal, wearing skates with American flag appliqués that are now part of the collections of the National Museum of American History." Can you imagine the insufferable Rippon or Johnny Weir doing that? Of course not. They would be wearing the rainbow flag instead.

"I think the only way to change perceptions, break down homophobia, break down barriers, is through representation."

So then, in your face. A kiss is pretty weak representation, accept that you define yourself by your sexual preference. Go for the whole enchilada, that´s representing.

Or mind your own business and respect others.

His attitude, regardless of success, is symptomatic of why the LGBT community does so poorly in America. Not content with being tolerated to live their own lives and philosophies, they scream for attention, picking fights with everyone that does not worship their choices.

He could have won Gold in every event that he entered, but he only earned the contempt of every non-activist, in America. His rudeness only shows he is unsuited for the world stage.

Yes, because an athlete´s sexual orientation is the most important thing here. The fact that your boyfriend turned in the worst performance on the slopes doesn´t matter at all. Despite what this article says, it wasn´t a BIG win.

There really is no need for NBC and Time to be making these folks out as heroes.

Just making it to the Olympics is a grand feat in itself.

Evidently, there are many who are not paying attention to how the television and cable media have taken over the march to present gays

It´s saturated all over. There are many more black people in the media.

This soft approach to make everything normal is having an effect, but the "in your face" tactics of some are really counterproductive.

Greg Louanis had tremendous athletic glory who won MANY medals in Olympic competition, and yet he never made outrageous and obnoxious displays of himself trying to get attention while coatailing others....

I don’t find Johnny Weir to be insufferable. He never snarks, just amuses. And he knows figure skating. An excellent, knowledgeable commentator. We have watched him and the formerly (when she was 12) insufferable Tara Lipinski do some amusing turns at the Olympics and at the major races like the Kentucky Derby. They are bright and funny together; never nasty.

How ignorant Time writers are. John Curry, who won the 1976 Olympic gold medal was gay. He died of Aids in 1994. When Aids first became prevalent, many skating coaches died. And the skating community mourned them. These leftists in the media as usual, have no idea what they are talking about. They are too lazy to do any investigative reporting. Also, while devoting all of their energies towards force feeding and reinforcing their SJW ideology, they count on the readers´ ignorance and when a contradictory fact does pop up, the writers suppress it doing whatever possible to keep the readers ignorant. These writers are not "reporters". They are Propagandists for the Left.

Personally, I don´t care what their sexual preferences are as long as they don´t force me to accept it and watch it. When the LGBT ´community´ lives their lives as the heterosexual community does, maybe I´ll pay attention to them. Until theen, stop looking and acting lie idiots.

An interesting article is posted directly below this, discussing how Aly Raisman is making a spectacle of herself and doesn´t understand the line that must exist between our private lives and our jobs.

At this moment, competing in the Olympics is the job of these athletes. Anything - ANYTHING - that distracts them from this should be pushed aside.

Kenworthy didn´t get the memo. If the Olympics are the most important thing to him, he shouldn´t be flaunting his private life. If his private life is the most important thing to him, he shouldn´t be at the Olympics.

Rosenstein Asks Prosecutors to Help

WASHINGTON — Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, has asked federal prosecutors to help review the government documents of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, according to a letter obtained by The New York Times on Wednesday. Mr. Rosenstein’s request was an unusual insertion of politics into federal law enforcement. While the Justice Department has helped work on previous Supreme Court nominations, department lawyers in Washington typically carry out that task, not prosecutors who pursue criminal investigations nationwide. But in an email sent this week to the nation’s 93 United States attorneys, Mr. Rosenstein asked each

A Democratic proposal to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement would shutter the agency, probe whether its agents had flouted international law, and create a special commission to rethink how the federal government handles asylum seekers and undocumented immigrants. The text of Rep. Mark Pocan´s "Abolish ICE" bill, obtained Tuesday by The Washington Post, was sent to House Democrats as they returned from the Fourth of July recess. The legislation, still being tweaked before release, is co-sponsored by Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., and Rep. Adriano Espaillat, D-N.Y., both of whom are immigrants.

Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court, and President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to succeed him, is the doomsday scenario liberals feared when Senate Republicans thwarted the appointment of Merrick Garland in 2016: The GOP’s brazen act of democratic sabotage will almost certainly deliver the high court to the far right for a generation. In the years ahead, the court will probably further erode reproductive rights, gay rights and voting rights, ushering in the darkest era in American history since the post-Reconstruction period.

Starbucks eliminating plastic straws from

NEW YORK — Starbucks is going strawless. The coffee company announced Monday that it will phase out plastic straws from all of its stores by 2020. The changes will help Starbucks eliminate more than 1 billion plastic straws per year, the company said. Plastic straws contribute to ocean pollution and pose a danger to marine life. Some governments have begun banning them. To eliminate straws, Starbucks is transitioning from the flat, plastic lids that require them, to ones that feature a raised lip you can drink from. The new designs have drawn comparisons to an adult “sippy cup.” (Snip) Frappuccino

Relishing the suspense, Trump insisted he still hadn´t locked down his decision, which he wants to keep under wraps until a 9 p.m. Monday announcement from the White House. "I´m very close

The party that has embodied Scandinavian social democracy for decades risks a historic beating. With nine weeks of political campaigning left, latest polls estimate the level of support for Sweden´s Social Democrats at about 25 percent. If confirmed in the Sept. 9 general election, it would be the party´s worst result on record. Like its sister parties across Europe, the group has been wrong-footed by rising opposition to immigration across the continent. Under its leadership, Sweden has seen an influx of about 400,000 immigrants since the Syrian refugee crisis of 2015 -- a massive number for a country of 10 million

As President Donald Trump prepares to name his Supreme Court nominee on Monday, disgruntled Democrats are carping at Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell for his cheap politics in denying even a vote on their highly qualified pick in 2016. They also need to look in the mirror. Democrats set the stage for their powerlessness to affect the court choice, and their reaction just deepens their political anguish. A year ago, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer spearheaded a filibuster against Neil Gorsuch, nominated by Trump to succeed the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Predictably, McConnell changed the rules on a party line

Former CIA Director John Brennan continued Tuesday to criticize President Trump’s performance at the Helsinki summit, saying Mr. Trump could have potentially risked intelligence capabilities during his private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the intel community might begin to withhold intelligence from Mr. Trump. In light of Mr. Trump’s comments about the intelligence community, Mr. Brennan said “there very well might be” a shift in the covert community to “withhold vital intelligence” in order to protect that information. “Dan Coats and Gina Haspel need to be on top of their game now and speak truth to power,” he

The man who co-wrote “The Art of the Deal” said Sunday he believes President Trump’s faculties are diminishing — and that he feels obligated to sound the alarm. “We are in a true emergency,” Tony Schwartz said on CNN Sunday. “And the accelerated rate at which his breakdown or decompensation is occurring is cause for us, and certainly for me, to come on to TV more often, to tweet more often.” Schwartz told CNN’s Brian Stelter that he felt comfortable making that assessment because he had “spent an enormous time with [Trump] over a period of 18 months.”(snip)Stelter pointed out that Schwartz

When Presidents Trump and Vladimir Putin ended their joint press conference in Helsinki, the punditocracy predictably swarmed all over it like ants around a pile of crumbs. Was Trump winking at Putin? Did he really say he believes Putin more than he believes Robert Mueller about whether Russia interfered in the 2016 election? Former Gus Hall enthusiast John Brennan, off his meds again, tweeted that the presser was “treasonous.” Professional chatterer Anderson Cooper said it was “perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit.” Every phrase, every gesture of the event will be picked

Chicago may soon become the largest municipality in the U.S. to test a universal basic income program. Chicago alderman Ameya Pawar recently proposed legislation that would provide 1,000 families with a $500 monthly stipend -- no questions asked. The bill already has the backing of the majority of city lawmakers, and Pawar hopes to soon work with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to implement the pilot program, The Intercept reported. “Nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t have $1,000 in the bank for an emergency,” Pawar told the outlet. “UBI could be an incredible benefit for people who are working and are having

San Francisco Mayor London Breed said the streets of her city are flooded with the excrement of the homeless in an interview Friday. Breed, a Democrat who was inaugurated as San Francisco’s mayor Wednesday, urged homeless advocacy groups that receive money from the city to teach homeless people to “clean up after themselves.” “There is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever seen growing up here,” Breed told KNTV. “That is a huge problem and we are not just talking about from dogs — we’re talking about from humans.” The streets of San Francisco are littered with a “dangerous

Whether Democrats realize it or not, the names being tossed as potential 2020 challengers to President Trump are weak. It’s milquetoast. All far too left for the American voter, and all with rigid regional appeal. Who knows who Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is outside of New Jersey? The same could be said for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) doesn’t resonate outside of the Boston suburbs. And Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), well, she’s working hard to boost her profile, but she’s running aground with the Bernie crowd. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) could run again, but his age—and the

Michelle Obama has been spotted letting loose at Beyonce and Jay-Z´s concert in Paris with the former First Lady dancing up a storm.

Michelle and Sasha were snapped in the stands at the Stade de France by several excited fans before Beyonce and Jay-Z took to the stage. But when the duo´s concert kicked off, Sasha was no where to be seen and Michelle was spotted mingling with

President Donald Trump’s comments during a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday were “treasonous,” former CIA Director John Brennan asserted. “Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors,’” Brennan, a vocal Trump critic, wrote on Twitter. “It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???” Trump and Putin fielded questions from reporters at a joint summit in Helsinki following a one-on-one meeting earlier in the day. Trump praised Putin during

A 63-year-old father of 43 children was found beaten to death Sunday afternoon in his home on Chicago´s West Side. The body of John Hearring -- known as Nicholas -- was discovered with head trauma in his upstairs apartment in the 1000-block of North Leamington Avenue in the South Austin neighborhood. Multiple family members confirmed that he had 43 children. Hearring was a long-time resident there and well-known in the neighborhood. "He was the nicest man you´d ever want to meet. I don´t get it. All this killing is so senseless and now they are targeting the elderly," said Gwen Bridgeforth, his daughter-in-law.
