    the fact that this would just INFURIATE the small-minded bigots and set them off to violently target LGBT people and their supporters.  These small-minded bigots would be infuriated that they wouldn't be able to cheer on their athletes, and as such I believe would heighten their hate and anger in dangerous ways.

    As such I would prefer that the IOC moved the Olympics out of Russia. Or better yet CANCEL the Olympics and place the blame on Russia who would NOT guarantee the safety of not just the athletes, but the visiting spectators as well.  This would totally disgrace Russia in front of the world and make other countries think twice.

    Never underestimate stupid. Stupid is how reTHUGlicans win!
