U.S. athletes told to cool it at Olympics - The Washington Times: Nation/Politics - May 16, 2004: "NEW YORK � American athletes have been warned not to wave the U.S. flag during their medal celebrations at this summer's Olympic Games in Athens, for fear of provoking crowd hostility and harming the country's already-battered public image.
The spectacle of victorious athletes grabbing a national flag and parading it around the stadium is a familiar part of international sporting competition, but U.S. Olympic officials have ordered their 550-strong team to exercise restraint and avoid any jingoistic behavior. "
Sodomites don't have to show restraint. Feminists and baby-killers don't have to. Anti-War freaks don't. Anti-American film makers in Holywood don't. Kerry's daughter can strut naked in public. Michael Moore doesn't show restraint. Those who strap bombs on children don't. But American athletes? Yes. Are you seeing a pattern here?
