OK, for all of you woke people out there that are for inclusion, diversity, and are against human rights violations, let me ask you a question? Why is the United States allowing its athletes to compete in China? Currently, the Muslim population in China is in the process of committing genocide against millions in their Muslim communities, yet people are turning a blind eye to it. You don’t see NBC News or CNN or any news outlet pushing this; how is that possible in a nation full of woke people that are ready to protest about just about anything at the drop of a hat? The International Olympic Committee is OK with this; why! It stands against everything they are supposed to stand for! If you look at the past of the IOC, though, they have always been OK with turning a blind eye to authoritarian regimes, and the reason is very simple authoritarian regimes pay top dollar to get the Olympic games. As far back as 1936, the IOC promoted Adolf Hitler and his Nazi regime because they offered the most money. In China, people are being killed and put into internment camps, which is OK with the IOC; why is it OK with the United States government?
The US, UK and Canada, India, Australia, Lithuania, Kosovo, Belgium, Denmark and Estonia.
They have all sent athletes, but no ministers or officials are attending. The reason given by the US government is that China is committing “human rights abuses and atrocities in Xinjiang” – against the province’s Muslim population. So the diplomats are not attending; I bet that makes the Chinese mad, which should get them to stop committing atrocities against the Muslim population. The most concerning thing about that statement is that the diplomats won’t be in harm’s way; the athletes will be!
The Beijing government is accused of committing atrocities against the Uyghur Muslim population in the northwest province of Xinjiang. Religious prosecution!
Human rights groups believe more than one million Uyghurs have been detained over the past few years in an extensive network of what the state calls “re-education camps”, with hundreds of thousands sentenced to prison terms.
Some former camp detainees allege they were tortured and sexually abused. They say there is mounting evidence that the Uyghurs are being used as forced labor, and women are being forcibly sterilised. Please re-read that sentence and let it sink in what is exactly being done to people for nothing more than their religious beliefs.
Beijing is also accused of restricting people’s freedom in Hong Kong through new legislation, including the Hong Kong National Security Law. I say accused in all of this because that’s what is supposed to be said. Still, with a totalitarian government, it’s very safe to assume these accusations are, unfortunately, very true!
In its 2021 annual report, Human Rights Watch said that “Beijing’s repression – insisting on political loyalty to the Chinese Communist Party – deepened across the country”.
The Chinese government has responded to the diplomatic boycott by issuing this statement was issued by China’s foreign minister. He states that the “United States has violated the Olympic spirit” and “will pay the price for its erroneous actions”. However, it has not specified what this price might be.
As they compete, the conditions imposed by Chinese authorities offer a bitter contrast to the party atmosphere of the 2008 Summer Games held in Chian also. Some flight attendants, immigration officials and hotel staff have been covered head to toe in hazmat gear, masks and goggles. There is a daily testing regimen for all attendees, followed by lengthy quarantines for testing positive. And there is no passing from the Olympic venues through the ever-present cordons of chain-link fence — covered in positive messages of a “shared future together” — into the city itself. So the athletes are confined to their quarters and are not allowed into the city. Because COVID looks like it could have originated from a lab in China, this story gets more and more unbelievable. What happens if an American athlete tests positive for COVID right before the closing ceremonies and are quarantined by the Chinese government is known for over the top draconian reactions? Plus, whatever happened to find out the origins of COVID? Does it seem like the Biden administration would want to get to the bottom of that before sending athletes to Bejing?
Every year, China pumps billions of dollars into the NBA coffers, so the woke NBA turns a blind eye. Remember when Daryl Morey, the Houston Rockets GM tweeted that he stood with Hong Kong, CCTV suspended NBA broadcasts because of that tweet and a year later, Morey was fired by the Rockets. It was so bad that the woke LeBron James tweeted after Morey’s statement that “I don’t want to get into a [verbal] feud with Daryl Morey, but I believe he wasn’t educated on the situation at hand, and he spoke,” Really this is from the supposed best player in the NBA? Adam Silver, the NBA commissioner, said that China government officials had asked for Morey to be fired, and one year later, they got their wish, and after it happened, the Chinese government put the NBA back on the air. The IOC is in China for the second time in fourteen years for the simple fact that the Chinese were the highest bidders. Find the best sportsbook in New York to legally bet on the games!
The perfect site for these games would have been Oslo, Norway, as it would look great on television because it snows there, unlike China which has snow on an average of six days a year. Norway has a population that lives for the Winter Olympics, but they dropped out before the final vote; why did they drop out? That answer is easy, the corruption of the IOC, which wants everything under the sun if you want an Olympics, is your country. Oslo pulled out because of the IOC demands. Norwegian politicians (and their constituents) were put off by, among other things, the IOC’s alleged demands for perks during the Olympics. The IOC’s requirements included an audience with Norway’s king and a cocktail party for IOC executives with the Norwegian royal family (paid for by the Norwegian government) as well as “seasonal fruit and cakes” in members’ hotel rooms, mandatory smiles(not kidding) for all arriving IOC members from hotel employees, extended hours for hotel bars and service of only Coca-Cola products. The IOC also requested that local schools be cancelled during the Games and encourage residents to go away on vacation. This is the issue with the IOC, they are corrupt, and they don’t care who they get in bed with as long as they are getting what they want, which is plenty of perks and a ton of money!
I think this goes beyond the United States sending athletes to China; maybe the real question should be why are American’s competing in any Olympics as long as this corrupt IOC is involved? For that matter, with millions of people being persecuted based on religious beliefs, why are any American companies dealing with China in the first place? Wait, I know, MONEY, it’s all about the Benjamins baby!
