IOC Forces US Goalie to Remove Constitution From Mask for Sochi

In a photo provided Ron Slater, the helmet of U.S. Olympic goaltender Jesse Vetter shows its former design, which features a portion of the preamble to the U.S. Constitution, with the words "We the People", the Olympic rings and her last name. International Olympic Committee rules ban any "form of publicity or propaganda, commercial or otherwise" on the athlete's uniform. Slater said that he repainted the helmet, which now conforms to the rules. Photo: Ron Slater, AP / Ron SlaterFox News – by Allan Muir (Sports Illustrated)

A goalie for America’s Olympic women’s hockey team was forced to repaint her new mask this week to remove a representation of the U.S. Constitution from the back plate.

According to InGoal Magazine, the changes were forced on Jessie Vetter by the International Olympic Committee.  

“No writing of any kind to promote the country is allowed,” artist Ron Slater told InGoal. “[The IOC frowns upon] any sort of ‘our country is better than your country’ kind of thing. Our original idea was ‘land of the free, home of the brave,’ and that would have had to have been removed as well.”

Vetter also had to remove Olympic rings from the chin and her last name from the back plate because the IOC saw it as “self promotion,” Slater said. “They want everything to be team based.”

    WTF???!!! Who re-wrote these rules? I guess the Olympic Committee has been taken over by the UN/Corporate Globalists, too.

    I thought one of the things in the Olympics was for everyone to promote and represent their country and be proud of it. So now we can’t promote or be proud of our countries anymore? What’s the point of the Olympics then? Must be their way of installing the NWO pride. I’m sure if they had America with a UN flag and the UN creed on it, it would be no problem whatsoever. This is an outrage and absolutely ludicrous.

    “”Vetter also had to remove Olympic rings from the chin and her last name from the back plate because the IOC saw it as “self promotion,” Slater said. “They want everything to be team based.”’

    How very Communist of them. Once again, they are trying to promote the Collective Communism/One world Order thing and destroy the competitive individualism in the games.

    Everything team based? I know there’s no “I” in the word “team” but words or images on a helmet have nothing to do with how you perform. So if that’s the case then Pepsi, McDonalds, GE, Johnson and Johnson, CBS, Time Warner and all of those other corporations shouldn’t be displayed or used to sponsor the Olympics at all, either, since most of them are American Companies, right? Wouldn’t that be promoting a country and destroying the “team spirit”, too? Love the doublespeak. The IOC and their corporate NWO masters can go F**k themselves.
