I’m sure Obama will agree to giving Russians the same ultimatum toward the acceptance of Gays as he will the Muslim countries....
Even knowing he was gay he could have been OK but no he’s got to be another in your face flaming turdburglar who wants to force his swashbuckling ways on the rest of us.
Beam yourself the F*** up. Georgie
What??? That hunky, masculine idol Harvey Fierstein supports the boycott too??? Next thing you know, Liberace, Rock Hudson, and Richard Simmons will be stepping up.
The balance beam the track events and everything?
Really George? “Oh my!”
Given this position, the IOC must do the right thing, protect its athletes and the fans, and move the 2014 Winter Olympics out of Russia,” wrote Takei on his blog.
Why? Are you saying that all the athletes and fans are gay, or that gay activists will be dangerous to Olympic athletes and fans?
I hope Russia stands tough on this. America should not be ramming homosexuality down the throats of the Russian people. Somebody has to stand up to the sexual deviants.
OH so old georgie has got his panty’s in a twist...
Hey Georgie! Why don’t you people do the athletes and the fans a favor and “boycott” the Olympics?
Can we get a barf alert on this. Makes me sick.
There are times that I wish that we could return to the days before modern technology. Well, except for the dishwasher, mobile phone, computer, air conditioning..
When is he going to stop traveling in vehicles that are fueled by petroleum products sold by Arab Muslims that stone homosexuals to death?
Way too late to move it - the prep time for an Olympics is about five years, not five months. People can boycott it if they want, but it ain’t moving.
That’s Captain Sulu to you! He’s captain of the fastest piece of junk (The Excelsior) this side of the galaxy! Oops wrong genre
Boycotts will be coming. *sigh*.
Even Hitler got the Olympics and he was a slaughtering animal.
