    It becomes very clear that he's trolling. He's actually defending the IOC's reasoning that being openly gay violates the IOC's ban on politicking at the Olympics. He's clearly demonstrated that he cares more about the integrity of the sporting event than the human rights of gay people.

    He actually made this Orwellian comment above:

    On the other hand, I have no problem with anyone expressing opinions of protest in any venue where free expression is a right.
    I support your right to express yourself where it is a right to express yourself? Really??? So, it just depends on where you are at this moment whether your human rights will be supported?

    He should just stop beating around the bush and acknowledge he's not for gay rights. Human rights have no borders whether if we are talking about human rights of gay people or anyone. Free speech is a fundamental human right, laws against free speech are self-legitimizing: well there's a law here so it's not a human right. What kind of crazy crap is that???
