Fox removes ‘Darker, Gayer, Different’ Olympics column


Fox News has taken down a column on its website penned by executive editor John Moody that argued the U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) wants to change the games’ motto to “Darker, Gayer, Different.”

I’m trying to figure out what the outrage is all about. Is what he said inaccurate? Or is speaking the truth offensive? 

Progressives have been on a long march thru the American institutions to reinvent the country in their own likeness for over a century now. 

Here’s a link to a cached copy of the original article

Unless it’s changed overnight, the motto of the Olympics, since 1894, has been “Faster, Higher, Stronger.” It appears the U.S. Olympic Committee would like to change that to “Darker, Gayer, Different.” If your goal is to win medals, that won’t work.

A USOC official was quoted this week expressing pride (what else?) about taking the most diverse U.S. squad ever to the Winter Olympics. That was followed by a, frankly, embarrassing laundry list of how many African-Americans, Asians and openly gay athletes are on this year’s U.S. team. No sport that we are aware of awards points – or medals – for skin color or sexual orientation.

For the current USOC, a dream team should look more like the general population. So, while uncomfortable, the question probably needs to be asked: were our Olympians selected because they’re the best at what they do, or because they’re the best publicity for our current obsession with having one each from Column A, B and C?
