  •  Wow. That this is what you project... (0+ / 0-)

    from my comment is incredible!!!

    Talk about trying to put words into someone's mouth!

    It is preposterous to conclude that what I said is a statement in support of South African Apartheid.

    You are just trying to show how morally superior you are, but it fails in my opinion.

    Too much of that stuff here at Daily Kos.

      I didn't say that. I was trying to show you that the same logic you used to criticize the politicization of the Sochi Olympics could also have been used to criticize the banning of apartheid-era South Africa's athletes for political reasons.

      George Santayana misquoted: "Those who remember history are doomed to watch others repeat it."

      •  When you start with "So,"... (0+ / 0-)

        what then follows is a characterization of what I was said that, at least to you, implies, because of my view on this matter, that I would also have taken a position against banning Apartheid.

        If you were asking where one should draw the line, if at all, then you might have been more clear.
