Lockdown in London: Ex-U.S. Athlete Jules Boykoff on Olympic Censorship and Militarization

[Ed. Note: The Games are costing British taxpayers a staggering $17 Billion. Let the grift, er, I mean "games" begin!]

from Democracy Now! :

Britain has launched its biggest peacetime security operation ever ahead of the opening of the Summer Olympics. Nearly 20,000 armed forces personnel are now providing security — almost double the number of British troops currently serving in Afghanistan. The Olympic Games are estimated to cost British taxpayers a staggering $17 billion. At the same time, Brits near the Olympic Park have been subjected to sweeping censorship laws enacted by their government at the behest of the International Olympic Committee. Meanwhile, activists are outraged that the Olympics’ long list of sponsors include companies, such as Dow Chemicals and BP. They say the corporations’ human rights records are at odds with the Olympic ideals of global peace and goodwill. We go to London to speak with Jules Boykoff, a professor and author who is currently writing a book on dissent and the Olympics. He played for the U.S. Olympic soccer team in international competition from 1989-1991.

    The modern Olympics has degenerated into a pile of s**t as far as I am concerned.

    Let’s have more on this mock award ceremony at the Olympic Clock in Trafalgar Square.

    The floodlight structures for the Olympic Stadium are triangle shaped, pyramid shaped – what fool designed that ?
    I wonder if this Illuminati symbolism will get destroyed in a false flag event.

    I will not attend anymore security events whether they be the Olympics or a Rock concert. I have stopped traveling commercially. My cellphone is no longer in use and my computer is next to go. It will be harder to spy on me that way. I will be damned if I will buy anymore appliances that can spy on me. Had enough of this corruption and politics to last many lifetimes. I hope the people stay away, I hope the athletes stay away and I hope globalism goes down the toilet. Centralists are the controllers. Beware the controllers they are coming. Pretend you are a cat and refuse to be herded. No one, No one, No One, NO ONE, has a right to do this to other human beings. If they have a right to kill me, eliminate my rights, coerce me, then I have every right to return the deeds.

    Spot on, Lone Wolf! But keep your computer and beef up your own security. There is some very good software out there that can make spying on us more trouble than it is worth. Get it and use it. Sure, FedZilla can break such software but forcing them to make that effort reduces their effectiveness and that’s a win in my book. Don’t want to lose this valuable comm channel any sooner than necessary. I would feel deprived if I could not read your comments. :-)
