We need to completely withdraw from china.  Tell apple to choose a side, either they pull out of china, or they stop selling to americans.  And deport all apple employees to china if they choose china.  Same with all other countries.  Tell the Olympics wold comittee to fully withdraw from china also.  Or a forever boycott of the olympics.  Start a US olympics without the china felators.  Make the mascot of the new US olympics be winnie the pooh.  Cut all the internet fiber going into and out of china.  Total isolation.  If they protest, nuke them.

"The international community including the U.S. Olympic Committee will not accept it."

The "international community" does not exist and the IOC can be bought. Neither have any say in our actions. F*ck you.

Remember the last time we boycotted the Olympic Games, and it definitely brought down the Soviet Union?

Oh well, I'm sure the 1980 "Liberty Bell Classic" winners sure treasured that impotent display of ball taking.

If the world had done that against Germany in 1934, Nazi germany wouldnt have been a thing for long and ww2 wouldnt have happened.

Boycotting the Olympics is dumb when everyone, including the US, does business with China. All boycotting the games does is cost athletes all the years of preparation they put in, just so some people can pretend they took a  stand against China's human rights abuses.

Hey, it led indirectly to Ted Turner's Goodwill Games.  Remember those?

Remember when the Olympics were a simple celebration of athletics that was shielded from politics?

Oh yeah. That was before any of us were born. Even folk older than me. I guess if you want to get really wild you could say it goes back to the first games and the myths which spawned it. That feels like a really long, boring conversation most people wouldn't enjoy.

As for China, I like the history, the art, the language, and for god's sake the food. I'd so love some Hakka-style noodles right now. Unfortunately for me they are not available anywhere here.

As for your government you are kind of alarming us. Don't wake us up, we are very sleepy. And if you do, well .... to paraphrase a person I follow, "I'm not mad, I'm just pissed off." So don't do that, ok? I know you're watching :)

Yes, athletes definitely have the ability to pull US manufacturing back from China.  All the CEOs and free trade folks who sent it there in the first place have no power like that, of course.

That is why we need to do more than just olympics.  We need to shut down all imports from china.  Shut down the internet cables going into china.  Deport their nationals.  Nothing in or out.  Excecpt nuclear fusion weapons.

...the Biden administration said it was talking with allies about a joint approach to complaints of human rights abuses.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday that the White House is not looking at a boycott of the 2022 Olympics.


So, we're looking at all avenues to hurt China in response to their Uygher Holocaust, but the Olympics aren't one of them. History sure does rhyme.

"The politicization of sports will damage the spirit of the Olympic Charter and the interests of athletes from all countries," said the spokesperson, Zhao Lijian.

Yeah, the spirit of the Olympic Charter was tarnished as soon as they started letting professional athletes compete and the introduction of professional dream teams killed that spirt.

Do you remember when the Olympic Games were held in the nude? It's pretty safe to say that the Olympics were always about politics in one way or another. An athlete is representing their country, after all.

You are right. But why should they choose this venue to make a statement? Seriously, it is an absolutely pointless gesture to, for example, boycott the Winter Olympics in China while at the same time ignoring the fact that the entire country as a whole imports over $400 billion worth of goods every year from China.

Every other month news of another chinese cyber attack on US infrastructure gets leaked that, if it wasn't China, would be considered an act of war.  It isn't like china is some innocent, aggrieved waif in all this.  They've got SOMETHING coming... This might be the least bloody way.

We should stop the hypocricy and also, at the same time, stop all import of goods from china.  Stand in solidarity with the athletes we are asking to boycott china.  The whole world, in solidarity against the china.
