Will Biden Boycott the Olympics?

When great moral-political issues are at stake, U.S. presidents and various leaders worldwide have contemplated boycotting the Olympics. It has happened a number of times with a bunch of nations. The United States boycotted the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow in protest of the Soviets’ invading Afghanistan in late December 1979. In turn, the Russkies retaliated (good riddance) by boycotting the 1984 games in Los Angeles, apparently angry that we dared to object to the Red Army’s gobbling up of Kabul with its tanks. Of course, the issue arose again with the Biden administration and the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.

That leads me to this thought: Will President Joe Biden boycott the 2024 Olympics in Paris? And why would he?

Well, the organization World Athletics, which is the international governing body for athletics (which includes track and field as well as other running events), said that it would ban “transgender women” (i.e., biological males “identifying” as women) who have been through male puberty from participating in women’s sports at the Summer 2024 Paris Olympics. The organization did so in order to “protect the female category,” and obviously rightly so. It has the support of the likes of tennis legend and feminist Martina Navratilova — not to mention anyone not poisoned by toxic, stupid political ideologies.

World Athletics evidently has retained some degree of common sense when it comes to biology. Fox News apparently hasn’t. Note the tone of this story from Fox News: “That means all the work French native Halba Diouf has done is all for naught. Diouf, born a male, had been looking forward to running for her home country in France, training for the 200-meter race. The sprinter began treatment to transition as an adult, and French authorities recognized her change in 2021. However, it means nothing for next summer’s games.”

Nothing! What a shame.

When even the World Athletics liberals have more common sense than dull-witted Fox “conservatives”—who are apparently cultural revolutionaries at heart — you know that America is toast. Nonetheless, kudos to World Athletics: they don’t like the idea of dudes bullying girls on track fields. That’s something that Halba’s mom should have taught him in kindergarten.

Among those no doubt furious over this is our intrepid president, Joe Biden, and his administration of fellow unhinged cultural radicals. After all, Joe Biden has for years, going back to his time as vice president, called “transgender rights” the “civil rights issue of our time.” To Biden, drag queens are akin to modern victims of Jim Crow and Dred Scott.

The Biden administration’s roster of radicalism on LGBTQIA+ madness in its opening months alone is stunning to behold. Biden has issued formal presidential proclamations for Transgender Day of Visibility, in which he has asserted that “Transgender Americans shape our Nation’s soul.” His administration boasts of its transgendered appointees, including Dick Levine at HHS, whom Biden made a four-star admiral. In sports, Joe’s White House has consistently strengthened Title IX protections for “transgender student athletes.”

Thus, given the paramount importance of trans rights to Joseph Robinette Biden Jr., including his unflinching support of “trans athletes” competing in sports, why wouldn’t our president boycott the Olympic Games in Paris in 2024? How could he not?

Will you, Mr. President? After all, by your own definition, a great moral cause is at stake here. The nation’s very “soul” is involved. This is a matter of basic human rights with the leading “civil rights issue of our time.” How could you not boycott, sir?

To borrow from Winston Churchill, no less than Western civilization itself is at stake. Actually, make that “Christian civilization,” as Churchill put it in the Iron Curtain speech. And as the Right Rev. Biden, lifetime professing Roman Catholic, has repeatedly proclaimed, in a nifty little ideological inversion of no less than God’s word in the Book of Genesis, transgendered Americans “are made in the image of God.” That is, the God who made us male and female (or so we thought).

I do hope that the American LGBTQIA+ community rises up to demand that President Biden boycott U.S. participation in these games. Pride Month is coming up even!

Joe Biden must stay strong. He must take a stand against this modern form of apartheid. Olympics officials are banning dudes who shave their faces and squat and bench-press 300 pounds from trouncing females in track meets. What an outrage! To quote Churchill, Mr. Biden: “Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never!”

Boycott the 2024 Olympic Games, President Biden!
