The Googles Do Nothing: west.la.lawyer: Do not boycott Olympics - you will fark up the minds and lives of athletes who are not competing to be political

Bah.  There are so many different World Championships it is easy to prove you are the best in the world without going to the Olympics.


Tell that to the athletes who made 1980

So we might not go to China but we were cools with Nazi Germany. The US has been more comfortable with fascists if recent events are any indication.

gunsmack: Can we see if the 2020 olympics happen first, before people start jacking their rhetorical dicks about 2022?

Murkanen: If the US decides to opt out of the olympics held in China I suspect the global response is going to wind up being "Oh no. Anyway...".

America simply doesn't have the same political clout it had when boycotting the olympics held in the USSR, and a large part of why is Trump's antics these past 4 years.  That's before we get into how a boycott would even work; travel to, and business with, China isn't being restricted like it was with the USSR, so in a situation where the US didn't pay for anything the participants would still be able to go anyway.


China is the new GOP boogey man. It accomplishes 2 things.

Punishes China for daring to unleash covid on the world and make strong daddy Trump look bad

Makes Biden look like he's weak on China, which is now a major GOP talking point. Even though no President (even Trump) has been especially tough on them
