    Greek Triple-jumper Expelled from London for Racist Tweet

    ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Triple jumper Voula Papachristou was expelled from Greece's Olympic team Wednesday for her comments on Twitter mocking African immigrants and expressing support for a far-right party.

    The Hellenic Olympic Committee said Wednesday that Papachristou had been excluded from the team "for statements contrary to the values and ideas of the Olympic movement."

    Papachristou is in Athens and has not responded to calls from The Associated Press. The committee said she was to travel to London shortly before the track events start.

    Papachristou's Twitter account ((at)papaxristoutj) contains several retweets and postings of YouTube videos promoting the views of Golden Dawn, a formerly marginal extreme right party that entered the Greek Parliament in the recent two national elections — in May and June this year — by polling almost 7 percent of the vote.

    But it was her attempt at a joke Sunday that went viral. Commenting on the widely reported appearance of Nile-virus-carrying mosquitoes in Athens, Papachristou wrote: "With so many Africans in Greece, the West Nile mosquitoes will be getting home food!!!". Her tweet prompted thousands of negative comments that snowballed Wednesday.

    This is a joke. Probably those nice tolerant "democrats" never hear about the "freedom of speech". By the way she is nice one — well that hair colour seems unnatural.

    I'd have to agree, a fine Greek specimen. Plus a great sense of humor.

    It really is insane that we have reached a point where merely voicing particular opinions (without any active seditious intent) and making jokes can get you expelled from polite society and that we have reached this point with only faint grumbling in protest. Truly amazing how unwilling people are to fight for their hardwon freedoms. I suppose no-one has any clue what it even feels like to be a free man any more, they don't know what they've lost.

    I was talking to my boyfriend today, saying "you know what, would fascism really be so bad? I mean, we already live in a totalitarian society controlled by a distant elite, we might as well have one with some kind of appreciation for beauty instead of one that holds nothing as having value beyond the economic".

    I never much cared for the idea of authoritarian regimes because I fear they'd probably have people like me locked up, but since we have one anyway I wish instead it was one with vision and a sense of something beyond mere quantitive materialism.

    People should be punished just for using Twitter. It really has the stupidest site in existence that people actually use. I don't want to hear your random ramblings about your oh-so-awesome little lives, thank you very much. However, that's quite another topic and not for this thread...

    "With so many Africans in Greece, the West Nile mosquitoes will be getting home food!!!"
    Ha, I thought that one was pretty funny.

    The comments on the article were also lulzy, but in a very different way...

    I am so pleased that something is now being done to rid the games of these kind of people, it should be racism-free, and all things should be racism-free.

    Unacceptable remark from her. Its 2012. Not the dark ages. Hope she learns from that. and to keep her views to herself. No one is pure.

    I agree. Twitter and Facebook gave all the lemmings their own 'voices.'

    Perhaps the Globalist Marxist elites created Twitter as a method to get easy feedback showing how well their indoctrination is working on the foolish masses.

    I wish this young Greek woman made a comment about the jews....now THAT would be a Sh*tstorm if I ever saw one.

    You have got to be kidding me !!! I am really so fed up with people who constantly try to make the most out of their rights, while they deny exactly the same rights to their opponents ! We should really write a letter, pretending to be some leftwing liberal quoting Voltaire :" I don´t share your opinion, but i would die defending your right to say it freely out loud" .
    That way they can´t attack us with the usual arguments (you are a racist and whatnot) and will be forced to deal with how freedom of speech is treated here !!! Especially since it was a joke that wasnt even really racist. I mean how is it racist to claim that there are blacks in africa, where those animals originate from, and many blacks in athens nowadays ?
    THAT IS JUST STATING A FACT FOR CRYING OUT LOUD !!! He didnt say anything even remotely against them being there !!!
    There won't be humans in 500 years. Enough people choke themselves when they jerk off we gave it a name. We ain't a species made to last.

    Judging by it´s name common sense must once have been a pretty common thing. When and why did that change, so it became the rare treasure it is today???

    ....Meanwhile Black Africans are shouting out 'Kill whites, Whites must die and must be extinct off this planet. Meanwhile, it's the whites that give aid to Africans in worn torn Africa! Who are the real racists people?

    Î just had a look into her medals so far : 2 gold medals in european championchips (U23) and 2 bronze medals, one of them in junior world championships 2009. One of the gold medals was last year, so it looks like she was the best in the team greek had. So certain people in the greek team have an interest that she won´t start. That means one athlete which wouldnt have gone now gets the chance, and the second best in team is now the best in the team. So who knows what happened there behind the scenes !
