This toon basically captures my shock at hearing the IOC ban the century old tradition of the torch relay because of a few protests here and there during the China Olympics. My immediate reactions were many, including the fact that, true, China violates human rights, but Vancouver? Who would protest the Vancouver Olympics? My other thought was, why do we continue to allow a few disgruntled punks dictate policy in this world. The best thing we could do is stand up to these thugs and run the torch anyway. The worst thing we could do is to cower in their wake and give in to political correctness pressure. After all, isn’t the Olympic spirit about overcoming adversity to achieve success?
