Barry, since you mentioned Olimpics please recall 1980 Olimpics in Moscow.
Politics are part of everything since long ago. Olimpics included. I think
the best behavior is  not to pay attention to such things and just work the
contest. Discussing this in the contest reflector just amplifies the matter
which is hardly worth while since that is not really a problem when just one
station does something stupid.
