You may know by now that events leading up to the this summer’s Olympics in China is going very badly for everyone. No one is quite sure how or why China got awarded an Olympics. In preparation for the Olympics, and the world light being shone down on them… China headed back up the hill to Tibet and got in a good old fashioned head crackin’. Normally, that might not be my business… but they are beating monks. Seriously, they have been beating monks to death. Who does that? Well, now we know.
China used to be responsbile for 75% of the world’s human rights violation. That was before the Bush administration and our myriad of wars. I don’t know what the percentage is now, as I haven’t paid attention in a few years. The point being, the Chinese government are extremely bad people. The Chinese government is largely believed to be backing the janjaweed in Darfur. Darfur is in genocide right now, and has been for years. See that logo up there? Know how they came up with it? That is the mark a protester makes after a tank hits him.
So, today Senator Clinton called on the United States to boycott the Olympics in China. Is that right? Is it really a wise idea to upset a superpower like China. Shouldn’t sports and diplomacy take the high road on such a struggle? Can’t we all just get along?
No. No, we can’t. I agree that we need to boycott the Olympics in Bejing, China. Remember the last time we all talked about Bejing? Yeah, it was the student masscare in Tianenmen square in 1989. This government actually billed the families of the students they killed for the bullets used on them. These are bad people that don’t deserve our money or our talent or Bob Costas. I like Bob Costas, and you know what they would do to him over there? It is a shame that diplomacy and friendly competition can’t rise above politics. Just like Reagan boycotted the Moscow summer Olympics… this is the correct step.
