I agree with you, but for me I despise the anti whatever country demonstrations that the athletes feel they must indulge in to bring disgrace to the games. So many good athletes, but the few who destroy the meaning of bringing honor to those whom you are supposed to represent I absolutely detest . I choose not to watch anyone who brings disgrace to themselves, their team, and their country.
If you do not want to represent your country, then don't. Just don't go - in fact, find another country since the one that you are representing is so bad.
Found the person who doesn't understand the difference between patriotism and nationalism. Not surprised.
Athletes who stand up to racism and other forms of discrimination are patriots.
You obviously do not understand the meanings of patriots, patriotism, and nationalism.
Seek peace but keep your gun handy.
I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are missing!
