Let the games begin..

So there you have it. Winning is everything even if it involves cheating. Having turned it into a political issue and found blatantly cheating on the world stage the ANC can only but keep going forward with the charade. The Marxist handbook reads, deny vehemently always then go on the offensive. They wail, how dare 'they' intrude on Semenya's privacy (on top of it being a race issue of course, hard to decide which is more important for now).

Actually how dare Semenya pass her/him/itself off as a woman when she/he/it KNOWS she/he/it is not a woman. It has never had a period and has a peepee and shaves..her face.

How dare Athletics SA pass her off as a woman when they KNEW she was not a woman? They did their own tests (the privacy intrusion didn't matter back then apparently and shows THEY had doubts). What needs to happen in the heady delusional world of the ANC is that the IAAF should change its rules to allow men who remove their bits and pieces to 'become' female to compete and do the same for women, allow women to inject themselves with testosterone to the same levels of a man. Then it would be equal. An equal race of freaks. Note to self: I might pay money to see that actually.

The stupidity of the ANC is well documented but continues to astound. Actually it's not just stupidity, they are playing the race card to its maximum and hoping there's some mileage left. Not this time, not even Sweden or Norway or some liberal la la land will come to their defence. This crap make work in SA but it does not have legs outside the borders. Bluster all you want.

Zuma attacks critics of Caster Semenya

"I don't know why we should not respect the privilege between the doctor and the patient," said Mr Zuma, who became South Africa's president in May. "Why, when the tests have been done, why was it published?" [er, duh, she competed in a public event therefore she gave up her right to privacy..]

The issue has become highly sensitive in South Africa, where senior figures in the ruling African National Congress have chosen to see the athlete's treatment in racial terms. Makhenkesi Stofile, the sports minister, threatened a "war" if Caster Semenya was blocked from competing in future championships as a woman.
["a war" against whom..? With the 'strike' force seen in Pretoria recently?]

"I think it would be the third world war," he said. "We will go to the highest levels in contesting such a decision. I think it would be totally unfair and totally unjust."
[...!!!!....do you see, world, do you see what we have to contend with? Newsflash bozo, South Africa signed onto IAAF rules and oversight and agreed to abide by its findings, not just the ones you agree with. Go ahead, give them a reason to ban our athletes..]

He described the medical tests, conducted on the instructions of the International Association of Athletics Federations, were irrelevant, even if they did show that Semenya was a hermaphrodite.
[au contraire, it's very relevant. See points above.]

"For me that means nothing," said Mr Stofile. "The issue here is not whether she is a hermaphrodite or not. Where is the science that says they have an advantage?"
[stoopid is as stoopid does. Rule #1 in an argument: when you don't have a winnable point to make, stfu!]

The ANC Youth League chose to deny the existence of hermaphrodites at all. "Even if a test is done, the ANC YL will never accept the categorisation of Caster Semenya as a hermaphrodite, because in South Africa and the entire world of sanity, such does not exist," said a statement from the group.
[there you go, the ANCYL bedwetters have declared that hermaphrodites don't exist. Ah well, I suppose that's good enough for the IAAF and the entire medical fraternity]

Ah, but getting an eye full of the British contestant, in the change room, surely made it all worth the while.

Pensioner said...

You know, i feel sorry for Caster. These numbnuts in the anc an ASA are just going to use the poor kid for their political agenda and she will be tossed aside like a piece of rubbish when they are done with it.

WHITEADDER said...

Not so long ago the ANC oracle also spewed that AIDS did not exist.....
This ANC guys are too stupid to realise at what point latest acute embarrassment should set in.

Correct. They are going to use her and dump her along the way. Just political fodder in any event.

Just out of interest, go and leave a critical comment at the link below, and see if it gets published. Both mine vanished into the mists of nothing.

You are right Grumbleguts, my comment, like the one I posted here has not been accepted.

Dachshund said...

@Grumbleguts & Pensioner: Somehow I doubt that a comment casting any aspersions on ASA or the ANC would get published.

Viking said...

@Pensioner.
I'm glad you said that. I feel the same. I feel no animosity to Caster, and think that if she has been raised and socialised as a woman then she is one. She is being used by the ANC - and remember, in African culture this girl is a pariah - and I think she deserves, if not the support of right-minded thinking people, then at least some courtesy. Even if only to shove in the face of the ANC. She's just a kid for G^d's sake...

the very same thing is not too uncommon on this very blog

@Anon 5:53. No BC, it is only you that has been banished, and for well documented reasons.

@Grumbleguts & Pensioner, IOL and others are the cues from which commentators take their group-thinking from. No one wants to stand out, not inside SA at least. Inside they all sing the tune they think they must sing whereas those outside, even for short periods, talk freely, like Rod MacKenzie when he tackled Trapido over the Huntley matter.

Rod is not quoted by overseas msm because his views are not what the "group" want to hear, neither are yours and mine. Citizen media like ILSA really is the last bastion of free speech. Even when we do eventually ban someone, like VI says about BC, we let him speak - for 17 months - before we pulled the plug. With IOL, News24 and local SA and overseas group-think media, you don't get one word in that they don't want seen by others.

Althuogh they never published my comment, for some reason they published a protest that I sent to the comment moderator. Must have just slipped through.

I see that American version of Caster, Venus Williams, showed "her" true colour(s) at the US Open when she attacked one of the line judges in typical Negroid fashion!
