LATE SHOW EXCLUSIVE … APOLOGY ACCEPTED?
I think not!
By now, I strongly believe that, if they didn’t, the whole world now knows who Ryan Lochte is.
He’s not a secret weapon of the USA anymore.
How many people were watching the Río Olympic Games?
That many and more know who he is and not because of his career in swimming
but rather because of the “robbed at gunpoint fiasco” story he fabricated.
I call it LYING …. there’s no other word for it.
I saw his interview with Matt Lauer and didn’t buy what he was telling the public.
His teary eyes didn’t move me.
Then again, that’s my personal opinion.
I follow a dear friend who posted an excellent article about this.
I strongly agree with my friend.
I will cite some of his words and I will include link so that you can read his excellent post.
In spite of the seriousness of this situation, it’s always good to see some humor.
This humor is as the expense of the ludicrous, pathetic excuses offered by the
“creator of the fabrication”.
Leave Stephen Colbert to do that.
~Ryan Lochte Epitomizes White Privilege and U.S. Foreign Policy~
The harrowing tale of American Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte and his fellow athletes being held up at gunpoint and robbed in Río de Janeiro by men disguised as police officers was all the rage in the media last week.
Not surprisingly, there was no shortage of excuses made for the cherished American Olympic athletes.
“These kids tried to have fun,” said Rio 2016 Olympic spokesperson Mario Andrade. “Lochte is one of the best swimmers of all time. They competed under gigantic pressure. Let’s give these kids a break. They had fun, they made a mistake, life goes on.”
Following the European colonial playbook, Lochte played on the perceptions his countrymen have of Brazil and Latin American countries in general as having nothing more to offer than crime and poverty.
The same way the white Christian settlers demonized the Indigenous Americans as “savages” and Donald Trump demonizes Mexicans as “rapists”, Ryan Lochte essentially demonized the inhabitants of Río de Janeiro as nothing more than a bunch of thieves.
In this way he is the perfect representative of his country’s foreign policy, showing no respect for international standards of decency, behaving as if we are the “exceptional” nation, caring nothing about other cultures, and fabricating evidence to make the U.S. appear an innocent victim while those we invade and oppress are tarred with a brush of criminality and terrorism.
“As it appears in … full read/full credit”
I do not own these images.
No intention of taking credit.
If anyone knows the owner of any, please advise and it will be corrected immediately.
