Bike Blog Boycotts the Olympics

From its abysmal record on human rights of the Tibetan people to its atrocious impact on the world's environment, Bike Blog will proudly NOT be reporting on anything from the 2008 olympic games in an online boycott.

You'll have to tune into Katie Couric and the king of all dorks Matt Lauer in their gas masks for your NBC olympic coverage.

Good luck finding any cycling coverage anyway, because it will most likely be ignored to a much more important sport like swimming or rhythmic gymnastics.

and for those who think the Olympic games are not a place to discuss politics read this article from the Nation, and remember the propaganda fest of the 1936 Berlin Games: "Sieg Heil"

Rage Against the Machine said it best: "Fists in the air in the land of hypocracy"

and Tommie Smith and John Carlos lost their medals for that? Come on.

Srsly, you americans just have to stop these right wing racist religious extremist that these "freedom fighters" in Tibet are. Honestly, Dahla Lama is no better than any average Taliban leader! Check out their views on womens right, homosexuality or modern medicine...

interesting take. I would love to be sent articles, links and information about this warlike preaching terrorist the Dahla Lama. I know reading the "art of Happiness" has driven me to want to occupy a country, kill and rape woman. Please send me information about the evils of the Tibetan people so "we Americans" can get educated.
