Six massive reasons why Biden should boycott Beijing Olympics

President Biden says he’s “considering” a diplomatic boycott of next year’s Winter Olympics in Beijing. In fact, that’s the least that’s called for.

The Chinese Communist Party aims to make the Games a propaganda triumph to put Leni Riefenstahl’s “Olympia” to shame. In reality, it deserves the world’s scorn, far beyond simply not sending an official US government delegation.

One: The CCP has violated every provision in the UN Genocide Convention in its horrific, horrific abuse of the Uighurs in the far-west region of Xinjiang. It’s holding roughly 2 million Uighurs, Kazakhs and other Muslim minorities in some 260 secretly built, high-security concentration camps and other detention centers. The handful who’ve gotten out say they were subjected to indoctrination, sexual abuse and even forced sterilization.

Two: Beijing utterly refuses to cooperate in any real investigation into the origins of the pandemic that’s taken more than 5 million lives. In fact, as David Asher noted, “the scientific and circumstantial evidence that the COVID-19 pandemic resulted from a lab accident at the Wuhan Institute of Virology is close to dispositive.”

The CCP has done everything in its power to muddy the waters from the pandemic’s first days. From scrubbing whistleblower Dr. Li Wenliang’s name from the Internet to blaming the US for bringing it to China’s shores via frozen-food packaging to muscling the World Health Organization into supporting its lies.

Three: China harvests the organs of prisoners of conscience, a nearly two-decades-long practice, mainly from Falun Gong practitioners and Uighur Muslims. Beijing insists all organs are from “voluntary” donors after death, but the raw numbers render that an impossibility.

Four: The crackdown on freedom in Hong Kong, contrary to Beijing’s promises in the accord handing over the island city. Not only has the CCP squashed any semblance of democracy, it’s now arresting anyone and anything that stands in its way.

Five: Beijing’s war on churches. President Xi Jinping wants no other gods before him: He has been cracking down on China’s Christians for years, refusing to allow children to attend worship, tearing down churches, replacing images of Jesus with his mug, imprisoning pastors and editing the Bible so that it adheres to the CCP line.

Six: In its latest bit of rank tyranny, the regime has “disappeared” a three-time Olympian of its own, tennis star Peng Shuai, after she accused Zhang Gaoli, a former vice premier, of sexual assault. That’s how the CCP rolls, but it’s reason enough for a boycott by the athletes themselves if the world’s governments and the International Olympic Committee turn a blind eye.
