Wave two flags — drive Putin crazy

Dear editor,

No way! It hurts only those who don't go.

Dear editor,

No way! It hurts only those who don’t go.

When the athletes come in for the opening ceremony, and just as they march past the review stands where Putin and his officials are sitting proud as punch, each athlete whips out a small stick with two flags on it.

The top one is the LGBT rainbow flag and just below it, the Russian flag. And they wave them like crazy.

What’s Putin going to do?  And this is all live and in colour for the world to see, especially the Russians.”

I can just see some networks scrambling to get a commercial on air. But the YouTube video would go viral within an hour.

And these flags would be seen everywhere at Olympic village. I can just see the rainbow flag on the hockey helmets, and on running shoes, shorts, water bottles.

Cliff Boldt,

Courtenay
