Jon Stewart Unveils The 2014 Sochi Homophobic Olympics

Posted: Updated:

As the Sochi Olympics get increasingly overshadowed by politics (and terrorism threats), Jon Stewart has proven that it's getting harder to feel that old-fashioned Olympics spirit -- especially due to Russia's stridently anti-gay policies that punish LGBT folks and their allies.

"Well, there's an Olympics 2014 motto. 'Russia: Where the Police Don't Always Help the People Beating You!'"

He then launched into the "2014 Sochi Homophobic Olympics," in which Sochi competed with India, Nigeria and Uganda.

Check out the clip above to see Stewart chronicle the problematic nature of this year's Olympics when it comes to the treatment of gays.
