US media called the Russian flag “rag” after WADA decision


The WADA decision to remove Russia from participating in international competitions for a period of four years caused a flurry of criticism of the organization.


Moreover, the international anti-doping agency was criticized not only by those who consider the WADA decision tough, but also by those who consider the four-year ban to be too lenient for Russia.

Sally Jenkins, a journalist for The Washington Post, went the furthest away from everyone, according to whom the four-year ban on the use of the national anthem and flag is not enough punishment for Russia.

It would be more appropriate to quote Jenkins herself:

The Olympic Games need to start from scratch. I’m talking about a complete change in thinking, ethical and scientific ... To begin with, WADA did not actually remove Russia from the Olympic Games in Tokyo. WADA only banned the anthem and flag, melody and a small rag (and melody and a swatch of cloth). This is an ideal solution for an organization whose care is to apply cosmetics, inject Botox into the problem.


It hardly makes sense to talk about journalism or any other ethics when it comes to a representative of a country that considers it normal for men to participate in women's sports only on the basis that he allegedly feels like a woman.

This country is also known for the fact that its athletes are allowed to use doping, if there is a doctor’s certificate that the athlete is sick and his illness involves the use of a prohibited drug as a medicine.

Here it’s just the right time to raise the question of whether Russia itself needs to participate in “international” competitions, the rules of which are determined exclusively in the USA?

    Break diplomatic relations with the United States and expel from the Russian Federation all patriots and citizens of NATO countries and the former former USSR ... Enough to endure Russophobia and Russophobia in the Russian Federation!

      And the children? Family members of the ruling elite of Russia, who live in the West, etc. What do you propose to do with them?

        Do you think that the Russian Federation should worry about the grandson of Yeltsin, with US citizenship? A person who obtains US citizenship vows to defend the United States with weapons in his hands, including from his historical Homeland ... For Russia, these people are enemies, because in the event of a military conflict, they will fight against the Russian Federation ... How to deal with enemies, Alexander Nevsky also showed us ..

          These are all beautiful words. And nothing more. Do you know anything about the closest relatives of the president? Premiere? And the others there rank lower? You cannot say anything uncertain. And before you remember Alexander Nevsky, think that the conduct of the war has changed. It’s not your question to push on the square. All on the horses. Checkers bare. And the enemies go and chop left and right. Here time goes on for minutes.

            And can you? Putin’s daughter lived in Austria, not in the USA ... After the last decisions made by the Russian government, I’m not sure that she will stay in the Kremlin for a long time ... You don’t understand that Russia, she is Russia under any government ... Although, where do you go , independent ...

              Unfortunately, we are not yet independent from Moscow. And our salaries for the same work in one country are very different from Moscow. request
              And what is it there, what did you call "it"? Who are you, if not a secret. You can get more details. Pliz. laughing And it’s very hard to understand you.

    US media called the Russian flag “rag” after WADA decision

    The Americans were a little mistaken, the rag is not the Russian flag, but our government, who have the main personal enrichment. And they don't care about their mother and Russians. They have accounts (what was acquired by back-breaking labor), real estate, in the "foreign country", the kids study and live there. And so the question arises, why should they think about the state and about us?

    Well ... Ours, led by a multi-path driver, will swallow another spit in the face and will continue to pretend that everything is fine, that this is a multi-pathway.

    And in Russia, the American flag has long been called a dirty mattress.

    Judging by her vocabulary, Botox got into her brain while trying to improve her physiognomy ... Overdid it ... She needs to be reminded of which flag in the world is the most hated, burned, damned, torn, stamped, etc. ... - her native, star-striped ... Thanks to the fact that such compatriots' botox brains do all over the world. Well, nothing ... The States will be rewarded as they deserve, I hope I survive, I will rejoice ... wink

    These decisions by WADA no longer excite me. For Russia, it is neither warm nor cold. The last Olympics was held in 2014 in Sochi. After Sochi, the Olympic movement died. Land of the Pooh☦☦☦

    The American media took an example from officials in the Russian government ... who in recent years have done nothing to respect him. Yes, this is not their flag ... They will fill their pockets and run away for the cordon. Once they fight for the honor of the flag.

    In principle, everything is correct. The WHITE flag is a rag; you cannot go to the competition with the flag of surrender. Or officials and our athletes to the bulb ???
    And this journalist should be silent! Through the efforts of her country, all the dirty tricks are falling on us ...

    Sally Jenkins - born in 1960, an English philologist from Texas, will retire soon - that’s what the old woman-clipper is trying to stay in the newspaper. The highest-quality Russophobes are philologists and historians, from observations.
