"The opposition to wrestling was probably coming from the feminists who do not excel in the sport of wrestling, and who dislike anything that is truly masculine, as wrestling certainly is." ~ Phyllis Schlafly
Recently the International Olympic Committee announced that it would restore the sport of wresting to the docket for the Summer Olympics after a public outcry over its removal. I agree with many people who say "it's tradition" on this one tradition is a good thing. Who is excited about this though? Phyllis Schlafly. Her old librarian voice came on and gave her Pat Robertson style report of the return. She blamed the feminist. Isn't that always the reason anything bad happens in the Right Wing opinion? Either abortion, feminist, homosexual, non believers, and pretty much anything or anyone they don't like.
The true reason the game was eliminated to begin with was because to many people the sport is terribly boring which I can't rightly disagree with. There is no "war" on "manly sports." There is no war at all on the sport cause it's boring everyone to sleep. They're still napping in the stands from the last Olympic wrestling match. Besides Phyllis there are womens Olympic Wrestling. Proof here. Took me only about two minutes in class for me to find that out. I find that many people in the right who say outlandish things claiming they are truths are usually wrong and that the truth can be found out with less than ten minutes of internet searching. It's sad to me actually that they settle with the dreams of this lady, Robertson, Alex Jones, and Glenn Beck.
I believe I'll be keeping an eye on the Eagle Forum Blog for a while seems to me that there is plenty of things like this to write about. Maybe they'll convince me on something. I doubt it of course but let's give it a chance. (Sarcasm Mode activate!) This might just turn into a conservative blog one day who knows?
