According to Natalia Mittelstadt Rep. Kat Cammack (R-Fla.) slammed President Biden for the token gesture of not sending a diplomatic delegation to the 2022 Winter Olympic Games in China, instead of taking a stronger stance against the communist country for its genocide against the Uyghurs and other human rights violations.
China is planning to use the Olympics to “spread their own digital currency around the world, forcing athletes to use digital wallets, as well as spectators,” Cammack added.
“It’s a disgusting weakness that the Biden administration has shown,” she said. “And quite frankly, I’m surprised that we don’t have more Democrats speaking out, demanding action on this.
“[T]his is genocide we’re talking about. The Muslim Uyghurs have endured the grossest punishment, violations that you can imagine under the Communist Party in this regime, and the best that the Biden administration can muster is, ‘We’re not going to send diplomatic representatives’? Give me a break.”
Cammack noted that the Biden administration could apply economic pressure against China, increase support to Taiwan, or have NBC — which, she noted, receives federal taxpayer dollars — mention China’s human rights abuses during their Olympic broadcast coverage.
