Genocide Survivor Pleads With Biden To Boycott Olympics
China is committing crimes against humanity on a daily basis. Yet we are doing next to nothing about it. The Uighurs are being tortured, raped, and sterilized. So you'd think we would at the very least we would call them out for their evil. Trump sanctioned them for it. But Biden instead has just said we have different social norms. So a Uighur victim is begging Biden to boycott the upcoming Beijing Olympics, which should be a no-brainer, but Biden has yet to respond.
"Tahir Imin, 40, — who was forced to flee his home in 2017 due to the increasingly oppressive political environment — believes the boycott is key to holding the CCP accountable.
“The new administration should boycott [the] Olympics,” Imin told The Post.
Sitting the winter games out was a “necessary” step in stopping China’s systemic abuse of the Uighur Muslim minority in the country’s Xinjiang region, he said."
"Experts estimate that between one and three million Uighurs and other minorities are detained in internment camps, which the Chinese government calls “re-education centers.”
Former detainees, activists and news reports have described indoctrination techniques including waterboarding, brainwashing and other forms of torture.
China, which denies any human-rights abuses, has also been accused of forcibly sterilizing Uighur women and mandating abortions."
We likely would have already boycotted the Olympics if Trump was still in Office or moved them.
The Trump administration also pushed for the IOC to move the games, according to former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Pompeo now wants the United States to boycott the upcoming games entirely."
I get that Biden doesn't want to be hostile with China, but they don't deserve the prestige that comes with hosting the Olympics, and if we are not going to act on helping the Uighurs, then the very least we could do is show our support in this way.
