(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki had a rare moment of human decency recently, stating that China’s inclusion of a Uyghur Muslim in the Winter Olympic Games opening ceremony earlier this month must not distract from the fact that China is perpetrating many human rights abuses throughout the country.
Among those human rights abuses is the imprisonment of more than a million Uyghurs in concentration camps in the Xinjiang region.
When Psaki was asked about China’s inclusion of Uyghur Olympic cross-country skier Dinigeer Yilamujiang in the opening ceremony, carrying the Olympic flame, she responded:
“We can’t allow this to be a distraction from, exactly as you said, the human rights abuses, the genocide that we’re seeing in parts of China,” she said.
It’s a good sign that the Biden administration is at least aware of these atrocities, but it begs the question…why did the Biden administration stop at a diplomatic boycott?
Why wasn’t there a full boycott of the Olympic Games if the Biden administration is aware of the horrible human rights abuses taking place?
It’s important to note, by the way, that these vile atrocities taking place in China are widely ignored by Democrats and left-wing radicals, despite the fact that so many of them wrongly claimed that if Donald Trump was elected to the White House he would round up Mexicans, illegal immigrants, and homosexuals and put them in camps. He did no such thing, of course.
Psaki said that the human rights abuses are the reason why the Biden administration “did not send a diplomatic delegation” even as. They are “cheering for our U.S. athletes.”
She added that diplomacy is complicated by that people must not forget what is happening to millions of people across China.

If they feel so strongly about it, perhaps it’s time for Biden to get tough on China…or would that put his family’s many overseas business deals in jeopardy?
His son, Hunter Biden, never did divest from that Chinese equity firm he holds a 10% stake in…
