(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- Believe it or not, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi just made a suggestion that actually makes sense.
After spending years demonizing Republicans for their support of former President Donald Trump, who enacted some of the strictest anti-Chinese Communist Party policies of any president in history, Speaker Pelosi is now getting honest about China and has called for a diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Beijing Olympics.
Pelosi suggested that the boycott should be organized in protest of the treatment of Uyghur Muslims in the Xinjiang province. The Muslim minority population in north-western China, which is made up of around 12 million people, is regularly demonized and victimized by the Chinese Communist Party, with people thrown into concentration camps and forced to work as slaves.
Reports have long revealed how the Chinese government “re-educates” the Uyghur people in these camps, and survivors of the camps have also described how the women are brutally sexually assaulted.
So for once, it looks like Speaker Pelosi is doing something important.
The House Speaker referred to other countries who have also called for a boycott, but it does come with one catch…she still thinks American athletes should compete. Under the Democratic House Speaker’s plan, lawmakers would be banned from attending but the athletes would still be sent to China to participate.
…and why, exactly, would China care about that?
Republicans have a better idea.
Former United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, has called for a total boycott of the games in 2022 and said that it would be a “terrible loss” for athletes that should be “weighed against the genocide occurring in China.”
A genocide certainly does seem to be a more pressing issue than sending athletes to compete in the Olympic Games, doesn’t it?
Perhaps House Republicans can push Pelosi in the right direction on this one.
