House Speaker Nancy Pelosi shocked the nation this week when she advised members of the US Olympic team to go light when visiting communist China for the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics.
Her comments are horrible, she is coming from the left side.
On Thursday, while Pelosi made clear she believes the US must confront China’s egregious human rights abuses and criticized the International Olympic Committee for giving Beijing the opportunity to host the Olympics. , she also said that athletes “shouldn’t risk the anger of the Chinese government.”

This commentalthough it came with a recognition that the United States had an “urgent moral obligation to shed light” on the communist regime’s abuses, it drew criticism, including from the former presidential candidate. Democratic president and famous peddler of racial grievances Al Sharpton.
Appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Friday, Sharpton voiced his respectful disagreement with Pelosi, arguing that American athletes have a responsibility to make it clear that they do not tolerate the brutality with which China treats its citizens.
“I respectfully disagree with the speaker here – and I usually support her – because you cannot normalize what they are doing in China,” he said. “Going there and acting like all is well is normalizing some very brutal behaviour.”

“We need to let China know, ‘You live in a world where human rights are non-negotiable.’
It’s surprising to see me say this, but amen, Rev. Sharpton. A little bigger for People who apologize to China behind.
As polarized as we are in the United States right now, if there’s anything we can agree on, it’s that the Chinese communist regime is despicable, and it’s gratifying to see such high-level progress so openly disagree with Pelosi and make an excellent point while doing so.
It is a painful mistake for world powers to consider China as a legitimate diplomatic partner. There has never been a larger, more advanced, more influential dictatorship in the entire history of mankind than communist China.
It is certainly up to the individual athlete whether they want to incur its wrath while competing in Beijing. As Pelosi herself admits, that the Olympics are happening there is a slap in the face to the victims of the Chinese regime, and athletes certainly face no small risk if they choose to speak out. .
But by openly advising Team USA members not to anger the Chinese Communist Party, “normalizing” its brutality is exactly what she is doing – signaling the virtue of “ shed light on Beijing’s human rights atrocities.
And I doubt that Pelosi is sincere in rebuking the CCP. This is the woman who appointed an accused congressman sleeping with Chinese spies to the Homeland Security Commission and those accused block an investigation entered the Wuhan laboratory suspected by many to be the origin of the coronavirus.
For all her criticisms of Beijing, the message Pelosi sent to the Olympic athletes has finally fallen into the hands of the CCP.
Let’s hope there are more people like Sharpton in the Democratic establishment willing to call her out.
