It’s Tuesday, 7/30/2012 and there is a small controversy at the Olympics. The American media (see below Google news search result, plus the TV for the past few hours) is reporting that America is complaining that a Chinese women has beat American men in swimming performance. I took a snap of results available to me right now and I cannot see why 4:05.18 gold medal performance in 400m IM by Ryan Lochte is beat by Chinese women Ye Shiwen’s 4:28.43. Her’s is a full 13 seconds slower!! WTF?
The world is about to end… Look at this massive disaster in India where there is more people without electricity than US and Canada population combined… and nearly all of Greenland’s ice cap has melted, but all of that cannot compare to the loss of American individual propaganda free mindset.
THE CHINESE have had for the past three decades the observation that China is 阴盛阳衰: the Yin prospering and the Yang in decline, or “Weak” according to google translation today. The female Chinese athletes have in the past performed better in the international competitions than the Chinese men, things like soccer, volley ball, tennis… Chinese Men can only compete in Table Tennis and similar small-balled games.
But today! All of American media have taken this same view and said that Chinese women is faster than American man even when the results are clearly not so. The Chinese women DID NOT JUST BEAT AMERICAN MAN IN SWIMMING. OH! MY!! FUCKING!!! GOD!!!! this is so fucking offensive to me as a Man, an American, and as a Chinese man!! And as an Internet professional that our industry lets this kind of crap seep into it’s mainstream.
The British authorities on the matter have declared that she won that women’s competition dope-free. Yet American media has refused to report on this. Even Google’s automatic algorithm is refusing to pick up the BBC headline on the matter. I mean, I even feel like suggesting that the Brits are just trying to kiss the Chinese’s ass in case it needs the goodwill economically in the near future. I mean, really? Did North Korea’s starving athletes just really won Gold in Judo? REALLY????
But a corrupt Olympic games, athletes and officials is not really a concern to me, as I am not an athlete and I am not uplifted by the Olympic spirit:
Citius, Altius, Fortius.
and I didn’t get up at 5 this morning to watch Olympics, and I most certainly did not get up early to watch American TV and least of all to read news on the Internet.
This is the end… mark my words…, the loss of Chinese moral, American media integrity, universal symbols of progress and betterment of men.
