As outstanding Americans athletes compete with others from around the globe in the Winter Olympics, Janet Napolitano turns her focus to homosexuality.
Obama appointed uber-liberal Napolitano, his one-time Homeland INsecurity chieftain, to lead the U.S. Olympic delegation to Sochi, Russia.
The inclusion of three openly gay previous Olympic medalists in the U.S. delegation is regarded as a symbolic protest against Russia’s recent law banning recruitment “propaganda” aimed at minors. For the first time since 2000, the U.S. delegation to an Olympics competition will not include a president, vice president or first lady.
In a hard-hitting speech prior to the opening ceremonies, International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach accused “world leaders” of using the Sochi Olympics as a political platform “on the backs of the athletes,” and making an “ostentatious gesture” serving their own agendas. “Have the courage to address your disagreements in a peaceful direct political dialogue and not on the backs of the athletes,” Bach challenged.
Napolitano, Arizona’s former governor, now president of the University of California system, received glowing coverage for her recent endorsement of same sex marriage in On Top, a “gay” publication — a position on which she claims to have “evolved,” saying “the arc of history has clearly arrived.”
