Fox News Vice President Complains That Motto Of US Olympic Team Should Be “Darker, Gayer, Different”

Fox News executive vice president John Moody writes:

Unless it’s changed overnight, the motto of the Olympics, since 1894, has been “Faster, Higher, Stronger.” It appears the U.S. Olympic Committee would like to change that to “Darker, Gayer, Different.” If your goal is to win medals, that won’t work.

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.

For the current USOC, a dream team should look more like the general population. So, while uncomfortable, the question probably needs to be asked: were our Olympians selected because they’re the best at what they do, or because they’re the best publicity for our current obsession with having one each from Column A, B and C?

      It’s as if they don’t ever hear themselves. I mean, wtf?

      • David Walker

        Oh, they hear themselves. At first, they didn’t care…it was approved, whether tacitly or not, by the bigot in chief. But now they definitely listen to each other so they can figure out what to say that will be even more outrageous.

    • Kruhn

      Except on events that are judged (and thus, susceptible to some bias) every single athlete earned that spot by being the best in their discipline. So shut the fuck up, you racist son of a bitch. And by the way this flag is supposed to celebrate diversity, motherfucker. At least one of the colors in the rings are present in every single of the world’s flags and the rings are joined representing unity within diversity.

      And the wig you rode in on.

      • northern_neighbour

        Yeah … even the wig dye is uneven .. phony as a 3 dollar bill.

    • 2patricius2

      Ah, yes. VP of white Fox network still thinks only straight white people are the best in all fields including athletics, even when they are not. I guess that is what happens when you are pushing a white nationalist agenda.

  • Ninja0980

    Nope, no racism, sexism or homophobia here.

  • It Takes a Village, People

    We’re through the looking glass, people. Full on White Supremacy from the bosses. They are speaking to their audience in the language that they want to hear.

    • Butch

      That they say it so plainly in their outside voices is what’s so amazing. And by the way, dude, we’re very close to minority majority or whatever it’s called. What you’re seeing does represent America. Blacks aren’t going to suddenly “know their place,” Hispanics aren’t meekly going back to picking vegetables, gays aren’t going back in the closet. Get used to it, because we’re not going anywhere.

        They all suffered for that gesture. The two African American athletes were banned from future international competition and the Australian runner also suffered.

    • narutomania

      Yup. But we do still have to consider the sources. It’s Faux News, for fuck sake. And the other CEOs and such are talking similarly are from Liberty University and Hobby Lobby (i.e. all Faux News acolytes).

    Must be terrible to come to the realization that gay people and people of various ethnic origins are better at sports than people who need hoverrounds to get to the shops.

        Actually, as a friend who has work on Wall Street for over 20 years, has told me, there are “algorithms” that many fund and stock traders, use. When the markets fall, they automatically kick in and they begin to chase their tails!!!

          It is spilling over to the international markets too. I contribute to a Canadian RRSP in order to reduce my Canadian tax liability. In the last week it has dropped 2%. I am not depending on it to retire but still.

          • Our genius elderly working class senior voters who elected Trump (he did very well among people 60 plus lower income who are white) are going to have to face the fact that their social security and medicare funds are next on the chopping block since this “tax cut” needs to be paid for. Republicans are calling them “entitlements” even though these working class people have paid for them their entire lives. In fact, there was a House budgetary committee this Weds to begin to discuss this very thing. Entitlement reform.

      Hannity’s already tried to do it, but the twirling and spinning and skating backwards that would blame this all on Obama would qualify the Trump spokesdevil for a slot on the Olympic figure skating team.

    • Boreal

      What’s happening is the 1% are selling off. They have their tax cuts and no downturn will hurt them. They know the rest of the investors are us working folks who have retirement money tied up in the markets. Once it collapses they can swoop in and buy cheap.

    The whole premise behind his complaint is that IF the U.S. Olympic Committee were selecting the athletes on their ability to win medals, it would NOT be so dark and gay and different.

    So: The best athletes ≠ dark, gay, or different.

    If you paid attention, that isn’t how they were selected. The USOC is celebrating the fact that the best athletes this year are a more diverse group.

  • HoneyBoySmith

    There is a disturbing tendency of some to assume that only straight white males are chosen for their talent. Everyone else, the assumption goes, must be there for the sake of diversity.

    I first noticed this with Sonia Sotomayor. So many people in right wing media said she wasn’t qualified. Didn’t matter that she graduated summa cum laude from Princeton. Her skin was brown.

    Didn’t matter she had a stellar record at Yale Law School. Her skin was brown.

    Didn’t matter that her federal judgeship was unblemished. Her skin was brown.

    I’m embarrassed I didn’t recognized this earlier. But, I recognize it now. I recognize what this Fox “News” asshole is actually saying.

    This view bolsters conservative white supremacy; it attempts to undermine anyone who isn’t straight and white and male.

    And,ironically (or, maybe, purposefully) it ignores this country’s long history of ignoring the talents of women and people of color in favor of promoting straight white men.

    • CharlestonDave

      It’s especially insidious because it suggests I can’t look at Nathan Chen and admire his incredible leaps because he’s Asian. It’s disgusting and infuriating on every possible level.

      • Lizard

        And Nathan Chen is our best shot at a gold in figure skating*. The Shibutanis, too, in ice dancing.

        *I’m sorry, Adam Rippon. I love you, but Chen has five different quads.

      Affirmative Action in the US is without quotas and only promotes people who are qualified, but it gets a very bad rap.

      • Lizard

        Reality is inconvenient to the narrative, so they fall back on the old favorite of making shit up.

      • HoneyBoySmith

        Affirmative Action in the US is without quotas

        YES!

        This is something I’ve had to explain to people over and over again: quotas are explicitly illegal and affirmative action does NOT mean the promotion of unqualified minorities over better qualified whites.

        I actually worked in college admissions for a while.

        Were there, say, black applicants who were admitted with lower test scores than white applicants who were rejected? Yes.

        But (and, this is something that isn’t well known), there are white applicants who were admitted with lower test scores than black applicants who were rejected.

        That’s because admission was not based on numbers alone. We weren’t admitting individuals as much as we were admitting a class.

        The most important thing to remember is that EVERYONE admitted was qualified to be there. And, to the individual applicant: affirmative action is not a barrier to your acceptance. If you’re qualified.

        • clay

          Do you remember “Night Court”? Someone challenged Judge Stone’s youth, decorum, and knowledge. Stone admitted that his name was the last on the list, but that no one else was home when called to fill a last minute slot, but his name was on the list.

          • HoneyBoySmith

            I was a bit young when Night Court was on air.

            It was aired after my bed time.

            But, I get your point. And, it’s a good one.

  • Talisman

    It’s not like there’s an affirmative action program or bell curve that gives a non-straight, non-white, or non-christian an advantage. They competed, and they won. If you don’t like it, maybe you should move to some place that doesn’t allow minorities to participate.

  • The_Wretched

    uh, “white straightness” isn’t what wins medals. If it were, I’d look for biased and bigoted judges.

    • Lizard

      Remember the last summer Olympics when several black US athletes, mainly women, totally wrecked house? He doesn’t, apparently.

      • Lars Littlefield

        I like to remember Greg Louganis. I’d like to meet Greg Louganis and engage him in a little naughty bits play. 😛

  • Chuck in NYC

    An observation. You know, when I was in my 20s and had just moved to New York, the older men I saw who clearly had hair dye jobs were predominantly elder gays. Now it’s allegedly straight guys like Tony Perkins and this clown. Now that I’m a young elder gay myself, I don’t see my peers going down this path as much — and, in my opinion, good for us.

  • jeffg166

    I blame the bad dye job he has.

    • Mikey

      the dye must be laced with lead.

  • DisqusD37

    Let’s see that fucker do one pull up.

    • Gustav2
      • Lizard

        Nathan Chen is fucking unbelievable. Even if you don’t follow figure skating, watch his programs.

        • Gustav2

          Short program is tonight 8:00 EST along with pairs.

          • Lizard

            Oh believe me, I’ll be watching.

            If he can land all those quads like he did at the national championships, I don’t think anyone can touch him.

          • Gustav2

            And as he has matured he has learned to throw in some ‘artiste’

          • Lizard

            I think his poise is fantastic. I think it’s all the competitive gymnastics, probably along with some dance.

            He’s a cutie, too. Doesn’t hurt.

    • The_Wretched

      Let’s see him walk at 3 mph for 5 minutes.

  • Hank

    I wonder what he thinks of Bruce/Katlyn Jenner???

    • Gustav2

      Who?

  • dogdadny

    but I bet he doesn’t mind his favorite baseball, basket ball or football team being “that way”

    • clay

      How much you want to bet? Or maybe it only comes out when it’s the pitcher, captain, or quarterback.

    • Lars Littlefield

      Well, he’s comfortable with those people because it parallels old-fashioned slave ownership pre Civil War. Things were more warm and fuzzy then than now.

        Yeah, most of the Olympic athletes are “individuals” not workhorses.

    Fox News Vice President Complains That Motto Of US Olympic Team Should Be “Darker, Gayer, Different”

    You are one ignorant motherfucker. Just what we expect from Fux Noise.

  • Lars Littlefield

    John Moody must live in an Alt-WASP universe, a universe I’ve only seen in places like Boise or SLC. Certainly not representative of the universe right outside of the FAUX News offices and studio on the streets of Manhattan . . . the “Greatest City in the World.” It must be hard to remain so racially pure in New York. Pity.

    • Megrim Twist

      ‘Tis true ’tis pity; and pity ’tis ’tis true.

      • Lars Littlefield

        “Who could not say?”

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    WOW!

    What can you say when confronted by such a vile and raw display of absolute racism and homophobia, I mean before you beat them within an inch of their life.

  • Robert Little

    Hmm, he says it like these were bad things. I sure don’t think so. And why stop at the Olympic team? I’d love it if this were a new motto for the whole country.

  • If you are going to be a prick (John Moody) at least get your dye job done before you take a stock photo of yourself, given your roots are showing, in one more than one way.. USOC has a bunch of other sub organizations that select the top athletes, The amount of training is something you don’t understand.

    Anyway, the motto is more like “Higher, Faster with the help of PEDs” or in Russian, Выше, быстрее с помощью энхансирующих препаратов…

  • Megrim Twist
    • Paula

      Is that one of Ivanka’s kids?

  • JackFknTwist

    When your country is competing you get behind the flag.
    That’s called ‘national pride’ 1.01

    No, it’s not ‘patriotism’, nothing so grand or pretentious. It’s plain pride in your country and your team , and rooting for your team is basic solidarity with your mates.
    You don’t undermine your country’s team unless you are a sad closet bigot, as this pond-scum is.

    But where’s the surprise there ? He’s FOX, which has been busy for the last 10 years in insinuating malice, division and bitterness and envy in every level of US society.

    As ‘Ranger One’ says here: “Fuck you, asshole.”

  • The_Wretched

    Faux News’s leadership hasn’t changed much with Ailes and some of the other worst offenders gone.

  • Chris Baker

    “were our Olympians selected because they’re the best at what they do, or because they’re the best publicity for our current obsession with having one each from Column A, B and C?”

    I hope the US olympic committee responds with “we choose the the team based on their measurable scores and achievements. If the top US athletes happen to match the diversity of our nation, that’s just an added bonus.”

    (I guess he’s never watched sports in the past few decades, since most professional sports teams have a diversity of players).

  • ETownCanuck

    Wow, just draw droopingly racist…I wish I could say it was a big shock but lately it just isn’t. Apparently his badly applied Just For Men has been seeping in and killing brain functionality.

      Actually when I see a room of wealthy white males I think White Affirmative Action.

      • Cuberly Deux

        Lol …..one look.at out Prez sure as hell proves talent isn’t a requirement.

  • Halou

    He wants the Olympic team to reflect the composition of American society, yet complains bitterly when somewhere around 12.6% of them are black, approximately 17% are Hispanic, and about 12% are of a sexual minority.

    It is not “different”, it is American.

  • Nic Peterson

    • Lars Littlefield

      The makers of Icy Hot will probably triple their advertising on FOX because of this.

  • Gianni

    FUX News Vice President? The culture at that network is never going to change, unfortunately. And Dood, take a look in the mirror. You are frightening to look at. And that dye job is like DumDum’s – ridiculous. Plus that untouched gray hair does not make you look anything like the distinguished gentleman you want to be.

      Russia can’t get any medals, so he’s falling back on the US.

  • -M-

    *eye roll* Talk about out of touch. The athletes look more like the general population now. And that’s because sports is focusing more on ability than conformity than they used to.

    • -M-

      And of course to top it all off, the U.S. bills itself as the nation where people are supposedly most free to be different and still allowed to succeed on their merits.

  • Sean Williams

    It’s a shame. The Olympics is one of the places where the diversity of the US and the strength of that diversity shines. You see competitors from places like China and they all look Chinese. When you see the US, our team looks like people from all over the world. The best come here to be American and add to our collective greatness.

  • Elsewhere1010

    Darker, gayer, different and American, which is a state Mr. Moody is apparently unfamiliar with.

  • M Jackson

    Wow. He should watch the Olympics.
    The performers there are not “selected”. They have to do a lot of reeeally difficult things. It’s more like a contest than an eeney-meeney-miney-mo kind of show.

    One thing he should know though is that every dark and gay entrant in the show damn well beat some white straight one, fair and square.

  • JackNasty

    Fox News is a cornucopia of bigotry and lies.

  • Richard B

    White people tend to be uncomfortable about diversity, don’t they.
    I never understood the vitriolic hatred so many white people had for our brilliant scandal free former president.
    After living in the diverse SF Bay Area for 33 years and seeing the economy turbo charged by so many amazing talented people form so many parts of the world, I needed to move back to the New Orleans area to help take care of my ailing parents.
    The region is mostly segregated by economics – the poor areas are the black and Asian communities and the white folks tend to be in the middle class and affluent neighborhoods. The white folks run everything and the electoral districts are gerrymandered.
    I miss our former life in California and the people there a lot and when my parents are gone, we are thinking about eventually migrating back to retire in country in northern California.
    After reading this story, it seems FOX VP, John Moody, talks just like the white republicans in the old south and it seems to me he would be a pig in slop if he moved here,

    • Sporkfighter

      “I never understood the vitriolic hatred so many white people had for our brilliant scandal free former president.”

      I’m not exactly numb in the head, but there’s no way I was up for that job on my best day. It scares the shit out of me every time I realize I’m quite a bit smarter than the president.

  • KnownDonorDad

    I know the type. This is the sort of guy who thinks that American athletes like marathon champions Meb Keflezighi and Alberto Salazar aren’t “real Americans.” I’d challenge him to a footrace, but I have “darker, gayer, different” friends who would put him away even more handily than I would.

      No. It’s that “I’m ignorant and damned proud of it” thing. Frankly, I’m a little surprised that Fox hasn’t ponied up enough money to buy the Olympics for a year. In addition to being bigoted bullshit, this may be just a little bitterness coming to the top because as rich as Fox may be, they can’t afford to outbid NBC. The super bowl is one thing; the Olympics is something else entirely.

      • John Paulson

        NBC has the Olympics locked up for a LONG time. The Super Bowl rotates among the three networks who have the NFL OTA(over the air) rights(NBC,CBS,ABC0. Each Network gets the Super Bowl once every three years.. Next Year CBS has the rights in the rotation.

    The Darker, Gayer, Different line aside, he goes on to say “an embarrassing laundry list of how many African-American, Asians and openly gay athletes are on this year’s US Team”…… He’s embarrassed by exceptional athletic individuals that are proud to represent this country in a sporting competition? He’s Embarrassed, and insinuates that the participants of the games are the result of quotas???? I think Fox News should be horrified this man was allowed to offer an opinion of such hatred and homophobia and racism while under the Fox Network banner! I guess this pretty much the result of Trump’s new America where you can be offensive, racist and hateful as you want as long as you a supporter of Trump.

    First of all, that’s not how Olympic Trials work. They don’t just pick people at random, idiot, they have to earn their place on the Olympics team, and they do. And secondly, what exactly does our “general population” look like? If you’re pissed because you were confident that Trump’s disgusting influence would have meant weeding out the “undesirable” colors and sexual preferences, you should know, right now, that Donald Trump doesn’t speak for ANY of us, he doesn’t influence any of us, and most of us wouldn’t spit on him if he were on fire. You, however, had a duty to the people of this country to provide knowledgeable, fair and unbiased news programming. You have failed horribly. Instead, you’re nothing but a lying propaganda hub for conspiracy theorists, the uneducated, racists and bigots, and I assume, what you meant when you said “general population”, and thank God we don’t all look like them.
