The take-no-prisoners LGBT march to world domination claims yet another casualty: Olympic wrestling
It must be the computer world's cohort of virginal young maidens who can't get enough of the tingly tight-singlet action of "wrestling-boner videos."
By and large, the most insidious conspiracies, I think we can agree, are the ones that are so well hidden, that even seem so improbable, as to be off the conspiracy boards altogether. By this standard, there is no conspriacy insidiouser than the Gay War on Wrestling.
I've been meaning to get around to this for going on a week, but what with this and that, you know how it is. Anyway, here's the heart of the conspiracy, as reported in a Valentine's Day HuffPost post by Meredith Bennett-Smith (links onsite):
Meredith goes on to report on the campaign for the "anti-propaganda" bill, in which pretty much anything that makes public mention of homosexuality as anything other than a scourge of the devil would apparently qualify, and to note the noticeable anxiety, as reported even by USA Today (yes, USA Today, that insidious LGBT propaganda rag -- "Sochi Olympics will test gay rights," by Kelly Whiteside), on the part of gay 2014 Olympic hopefuls about the political climate to be expected at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, on Russia's Black Sea coast.

A Russian coach furious about the International Olympic Committee's recent decision to remove wrestling from the 2020 Olympics has made an inflammatory claim about who is to blame for the move.
Speaking to Russian sports site R-Sport, Russian wrestling coach Vladimir Uruimagov said that the IOC's decision was evidence of a gay conspiracy.
"If they expel wrestling now, that means that gays will soon run the whole world,” Uruimagov said, adding that cutting wrestling from the Olympic program was "a blow to masculine origins.”
Visit R-Sport to read what else Uruimagov had to say.
Uruimagov's allegations follow recent criticism leveled at the IOC for not pushing back hard enough against participating countries that criminalize homosexuality, R-Sport notes.
Meanwhile, Russia's anti-gay propaganda bill, which is expected to pass the legislature, may be indicative of the pervasiveness of homophobia in Russia. . . .
NOW THE FIRST THING TO BE SAID
ABOUT THE GAY WAR ON WRESTLING . . .
. . . and by now I'm probably the last person on the planet to say it, is that nobody on the planet, as far as I'm aware, loves wrestling more than Teh Gays. For participants, after all, it is the touchy-feeliest of athletic competitions, and for spectators it is, um, the hunky-doriest. Sure, swimming and diving may be more, er, revealing, and the gymnasts and skaters can be pretty darned hot, but the wrestlers are engaged in contact sport of what we might call the second-most-intimate kind.
For the record, as I understand it, while wrestling has indeed been voted off the "automatic" list for Winter Olympic "sports" by the relevant committee of the International Olympic Committee, it's not yet necessarily "out." Most obviously, one place has been left open for which all the left-out-in-the-cold winter sports can still apply. Or of course the committee could come to its senses.
Rather obviously, wrestling isn't like those joke make-believe "sports" that somehow find their way into both the Summer and the Winter Games. What's more, it wasn't targeted, as the IOC folk, sworn guardians of Olympic purity, seem to be claiming, because it's unpopular or doesn't sell out its matches. The problem is more likely that its considerable popularity doesn't translate well to revenue-generating via TV ratings. My guess, though, is that Teh Gays are doing everything in their power to pump up those Olympic wrestling ratings.
"It is necessary," Coach U told R-Sport, "for millions around the world who understand that this is a man’s sport and who understand the need to continue the human race to go out and explain their position to the Olympic Committee." Yes, right, a man's sport. Perhaps Coach U hasn't noticed the flourishing YouTube culture of what we might call "wrestling-boner videos."
Then again, I could be wrong. It could be that those videos are being posted and viewed by the computer world's cohort of virginal young maidens who can't get enough of this tingly tight-singlet action.
That's Coach U with, um, one of his boys. Yessiree, it's a man's sport, ladies and germs!
