President Joe Biden’s foreign affairs record as former President Barack Obama’s vice president wasn’t that strong, and now that he’s in charge, it’s still not great. Biden is a weak leader. Coming out of the Covid-19 pandemic, withdrawing from Afghanistan, and waiving sanctions of Russia for the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline.
With all of that said, Biden has decided not to send diplomats or official representation to the Olympics in 2022 held in Beijing, China.
When Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked about this, she said, “The Biden Administration will not send any diplomatic or official representation to the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics and Paralympic Games because of the ongoing genocide and crimes against humanity. In Xinjiang, as well as other human rights violations.”
So, they finally admit it. The speculations have been going on for months, and China has been suppressing the information within their own country. Independent reported, “China censored a TV report about its detention of more than a million Uyghur Muslims in ‘re-education camps’ by suddenly cutting off the broadcast, according to a BBC reporter.”
Psaki continued, “Team USA athletes have our full support. We will be cheering them on from home and entirely behind them. We will not contribute to the games’ fanfare.”
When asked if athletes should be banned from the 2022 Olympics, Psaki said, “I don’t think it was the right step for us to penalize athletes who had been training and preparing for this moment. And we felt that by not sending an official US delegation, we could send a clear message.”
So the US isn’t doing anything about it? Just like Biden to choke when he should act. Nobody cares about diplomatic support other than world leaders who pat each other on the back while attending. If the US is going to boycott, they need to do that. Ban sponsorships, broadcasting of the Olympics, ban athletes, everything. Anything less than that is acceptance of the situation.
RedState had it right when they said, “If you ask today, how did the concentration camps go under the Germans while some in the world knew and did nothing, it’s because of cowardly decisions like this.” If there was no other reason to impeach Biden, this is why impeach. And then go after Vice President Kamala Harris.
