Replying to How does Gu have support from pros?
I know she’s incredibly skilled and dominant within her field, and I also know pro skiers are typically left leaning (and have double digit concussions and didn’t go to real high school) and liking communism aligns with those types of views and behavioral patterns, but is anyone else legitimately mind blown by the amount of high profile pros who seem to support her? I don’t see how she garners such massive support (from westerners) despite having made a choice to support a government who kills and imprisons their political opponents. BTW I’m not saying all pros are concussed idiots, but I do know the VAST majority of them grew up with a Grotesquely privileged lifestyle, and advocate for change, UNTIL it involves cutting off support fo someone advocating and competing on behalf of one of the most horrid dictatorships on earth. Also, I know shit is political and you can’t just tell the best female skier she’s a horrendous person (even though it’s true), but I hope and pray some of the big time pros come out in opposition of her and her abuse of the top notch US training
