Greek Olympian Fired For Joke – Or Her Choice Of Political Party?
Make fun of Blacks? No bow deep enough.
No amount of groveling could save poor Voula Papachristou from being thrown off the Greek Olympic squad for one of the mildest unPC jokes I have ever heard:
‘With so many Africans in Greece, at least the West Nile mosquitoes will eat home made food!’
Kicked out for a racist tweet: Greek triple jumper is banned from the Games after her African `joke` By Katherine Faulkner and Nick McDermott Mail Online 25 July 2012
That is probably because her real offence is her political stance:
…her support for the far-Right party Golden Dawn made her a controversial figure.
She also posted personal messages to the party’s spokesman and member of parliament Ilias Kasidiaris
There is no point duplicating Larry Auster on this disgrace:
What do you say about a society (Western society) in which you don’t have to say anything actually negative, anything actually biased about any protected group, particularly blacks, to have your career and place in society destroyed, you just have to tell a garden variety joke?
The Mail Online also reported
Papachristou had been described as one of the ‘sexiest’ Olympians by the Greek press
and supported this observation with no less than 12(!) photographs of her.
I hope it is a consolation to Miss Papachristou that millions who most likely would never have heard of her before yesterday would probably agree.
Is a caption necessary?
