Gold medal asshattery

Johnny Weir has spent too much time on the ice and too little time in the classroom.
He acknowledged that he's taken some flak about the jacket, which was a birthday gift from Russian skater Tatiana Totmianina.

"People are [saying] like, 'What are you doing? Why don't you switch countries?' But it's just for fun," said Weir. "It's a group of people I admire. It would be the same as someone wearing a Madonna T-shirt."

No, I don't think it is harmless. The Soviet Union and the Communist spawn it flecked over the globe represent the greatest march of darkness since the hordes came out of Mongolia.

Ignorance doesn't work for me WRT this. Would he wear this if a German gave it to him?
