These bizarre defenses of chokers and quitters are beginning to border on parody:
“After further medical evaluation, Simone Biles has withdrawn from the final individual all-around competition,” USA Gymnastics said in a statement. “We wholeheartedly support Simone’s decision and applaud her bravery in prioritizing her well-being.
“Her courage shows, yet again, why she is a role model for so many.”
Meanwhile, real competitors like Aaron Rodgers are criticized for months just because he chose to try passing the ball rather than attempting to run it into the end zone. (The criticism was incredibly stupid, by the way, because there was no way Rodgers was going to outrun Jason Pierre-Paul, who had already sacked him twice during the game, from the 10-yard-line.) Can you even imagine how the media would have come down on Patrick Mahomes if, instead of playing a Super Bowl behind an injured and ineffective offensive line, he had withdrawn from the game the day before?
“I won’t be playing in the Super Bowl today. I don’t know, I’m just feeling a little blue. But hey, to the rest of the Chiefs, you guys just go out there and kick some ass. I’ll be cheering for you!”
It’s strange, because it’s not as if black athletes were previously immune from criticism. Perhaps this is a consequence of Black Lives Matter or something, or perhaps it’s just a coincidence combined with the philosophy that everyone is a winner no matter what happens.
Either way, it’s ridiculous. Champions don’t choke and they definitely don’t quit.
Miles Mathis has an entirely different take:
In February of 2018, I called foul on the USA Gymnastics story of Larry Nassar, who was allegedly sentenced to 175 years in jail for molesting young women. There I showed all the discontinuities, contradictions, flaws, and red flags on that story. Well, that story has continued to spin out this week, since two days ago we saw the story dredged up for the Olympics, with Simone Biles being forced in an interview to say she too had been molested by Nassar. I have watched all of 30 minutes of Olympics coverage, but happened to see the first part of that interview, since I was with friends at the time. I walked out in disgust, knowing she was lying, and missed the second half where she was with her mother. Anyway, the interview apparently backfired on the controllers, since many normies saw it and realized Biles was lying. One of my friends talked to his mother later that night, and she volunteered the information that she thought Biles was lying. Pretty extraordinary, since his mother is not a conspiracy theorist and otherwise doesn’t think too much of my papers. Apparently word got back to Biles through the grapevine that viewers all over the world were not believing her, since yesterday she had a meltdown, quitting the all-round competition despite not being injured, and giving the gold to Russia. Just so you know, Biles is considered the best gymnast in the world, and the US was favored to win the all-round because of that. Many are calling her the best gymnast ever, due to the difficulty of her routines and the height of her tumbling. So this is a huge deal.
In the mainstream, no one is mentioning the obvious, so as usual it is up to me. I absolutely guarantee you the reason she quit wasn’t because she was “sad” or “stressed” or mentally weak. Clearly, she quit because she was sick of being forced to lie by these bastards in Intelligence who now control everything.
So, maybe she is a hero after all?
