The United States of America has announced the decision to boycott the 2022 Winter Olympic Games in Beijing due to the oppressive and inhumane behavior of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Jen Psaki pledged that the Biden Administration1 would refuse to attend due to the mass genocide, forced labor, and organ harvesting that occurs behind the mysterious communist country of China. Psaki placing a diplomatic boycott on the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics and Paralympic Games stated,
“The Biden administration will not send any diplomatic or official representation to the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics and Paralympic Games given the PRC’s ongoing genocide and crimes against humanity in Xinjiang and other human rights abuses.”
“Everybody can call it whatever they want to call it. I would just remind you that, often, when you use ‘diplomatic boycott’ — that phrase — that brings people back to 1980, and we are not. The athletes will be participating. We will be rooting for the athletes from home. I am an Olympics-obsessed person, so I’m looking forward to doing that. But I think this is just an indication that it cannot be business as usual, that not sending a diplomatic delegation sends that message.”
Psaki added “That does not mean that is the end of the concerns we will raise about human rights abuses in Xinjiang.”
“We’ve already taken a number of steps. We’ve been a leader in the world in leading actions through the G7. We’re obviously also working with Congress. But this is just sending a message that, given these human rights abuses, we cannot proceed with business as usual.”
When asked why the Biden Administration did not extend the boycott to the American Olympic athletes, Psaki responded, that it was the freedom of the athletes to choose to whether or not to participate in the Winter Olympics, stating,
“I don’t think that we felt it was — it was the right step to penalize athletes who have been training, preparing for this moment. And we felt that we could send a clear message by not sending an official U.S. delegation.”
This public shaming of China appeared to anger Xi Jinping, as the Chinese Communist Party responded with ambiguous threats stating that there would be a punishment for speaking against Xi’s modernized and digitally revised communist thought reform campaign. The infiltration of communism begins digitally, before it materializes in capitalist societies.
Zhao Lijian, Spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of People's Republic of China, responded conveying Xi Jinping’s warning,
"The United States will pay a price for its mistaken acts," Zhao Lijian told stated, suggesting caution to America, "Let's all wait and see."
The Chinese Communist Party have been oppressing their citizens, through the separation of individualist thought from collectivist action. Those who choose to have personal views which do not align with communist ideology are ostracized from society, cast into re-education camps, (laogai) where they are forced to comply with communist thought. Some disappear, never to be heard from again, their published words banned throughout China’s Internet.
Religion is considered unpatriotic under a communist regime. China, has the largest population of atheists in the world, with 91% of its population considered irreligious or atheist.
According to the World Population Review2,
“68% of Chinese respondents to the WIN-Gallup poll self-identified as ‘convinced atheists,’ with another 23% claiming the ‘non-religious’ tag and only 1% falling into the ‘haven't thought about it’ category. Confucianism, which is one of China’s oldest philosophical systems, is notable for its lack of a belief in a deity.”
The practice of religion is discouraged, as it’s absence in society forces citizens to seek the chairman as higher power. Those who hold deep religious beliefs, which do not align with CCP thought are placed in labor camps or education camps.
Often, these “criminal prisoners”—most who have not committed a violent crime, or any crime outside of “forbidden thought”—are subjected to organ harvesting as needed by CCP authorities. Need an organ fast? China can provide that, no questions asked, and none answered. The mystery of China lies behind its Great Wall of deception, as to the outside world many exist unaware of the country’s hidden atrocities.
The Great Firewall of China
China also suppresses the online access and information of its citizens. The CCP feeds a specific narrative, break that narrative and citizens lose access to their civil rights. Torture is common among prisoners, as it is seen as a form of re-education, and punishment for their treasonous behavior and thought crimes.
In 2008, China used weather manipulation3 to prevent rain during the Beijing Olympic Games. Since then, China has continued to experiment with weather modification. Could similar tactics be used during the 2022 Beijing Winter Games? What long term effects does artificial weather modification have on the overall climate?
Social Credit Scores
Those who speak out are punished for their beliefs, causing many Chinese citizens to remain silent. Citizens and businesses are surveilled, and judgements are made which determine their access to economic opportunities, and public resources. Each entity is given a Social Credit Score, that varies depending on their contribution to the Chinese Communist Party’s cause.
Those who resist or oppose the communist system lose points, reducing their class within the system. Life becomes harder for citizens who rebel, speak, or think outside the Chinese communist regime. Could vaccine passports be the first iteration of a similar implementation into America’s capitalist free market economy? Should the individualist be penalized for not adhering to a collectivist system?
While the Chinese Communist Party were offended by the U.S. publicly denounced the actions of their regime, wearing foreign relations with the totalitarian regime, it’s important that the U.S. government recognizes the tragic inhumanities resulting from the socialist ideology of collectivism. Mao’s stance was even the suggestion that a communist party could coexist with a capitalist country was treasonous, outcasting the individual as a “revisionist”, and an enemy of the state. The Chinese Communist Party may have primitive ideologies, but they have remained consistent and oppressive without outside interference. Since the people’s liberation, Mao had convinced his followers that communism was the future of sustainability in China, that poverty was better than luxury, and that it was always going to improve.
As time has shown, the human rights situation in China has improved only in the methods of deception, and global influence. Could this boycott bright the communist party’s devastation to light? Or, will it drive unnecessary public tension between the two countries, when sanctions or other methods could be used to privately handle this dispute? Will America standing up to the oppressive regime, through this boycott help spread national awareness to the true nature of the socialist agenda?
The Chinese Communist Party is historically responsible for more deaths than Hitler, Lenin, and Stalin combined, under Mao’s reign, killing an estimated fifty million people throughout China. That same party is still alive and well.
Today, the CCP is responsible for continuous oppression against its citizens, even in 2021. While the 2022 Winter Olympic Games boycott is strictly diplomatic, the press statement does bring global attention to the inhumane treatment, and secret horrors of the Chinese Communist Party. The Biden Administration’s announcement further reveals Xi’s CCP pressure for western mainstream media and major corporations to overlook the awful atrocities, incentivized by access to China’s consumer market, or the cheap labor in comparison to products and ingredients manufactured domestically. Will other countries follow the United States decision to boycott the event, to stand up against communism, and stand up for humanity?
