US Fox News Executive VP on Winter Olympics: ‘Focus on the Winner of the Race, Not the Race of the Winner’

US Fox News Executive VP on Winter Olympics: ‘Focus on the Winner of the Race, Not the Race of the Winner’. By Warner Huston.

In his February 8 editorial, [Fox News Executive Vice President John Moody] noted that the motto of the Olympics is “Faster, Higher, Stronger,” but that too many are seemingly more interested in turning the games “Darker, Gayer, Different.” …

A USOC official was quoted this week expressing pride (what else?) about taking the most diverse U.S. squad ever to the Winter Olympics. That was followed by a, frankly, embarrassing laundry list of how many African-Americans, Asians and openly gay athletes are on this year’s U.S. team. No sport that we are aware of awards points – or medals – for skin color or sexual orientation.

Moody wonders if our Olympians were chosen at least in part because of their “diversity” instead of being excellent at their sport.

This is going to get worse before it gets better. For this trend to be reversed, the left has to give up on identity politics as a way to win elections, and return to policies that appeal to the native, majority populations in the West. One way or another, the current situation is not, to use their favorite word, sustainable.
