The Biden administration has decided to take the wimpy way out while throwing the American people to the communist wolves of China.
“Joe Biden’s White House is set to impose an empty ‘diplomatic’ boycott of the Olympics in China by refusing to send an official delegation. However, he will still allow U.S. athletes to compete and allow American media networks to air the games regardless,” reported Breitbart News.
“White House insiders say that after being urged by human rights activists to boycott the 2022 Olympics in Beijing, the Biden administration is trying to take a middle road. Instead of fully boycotting the event hosted by a country the White House calls genocidal, Biden is just going to cancel any official delegations and allow the athletes to carry on,” according to Breitbart News.

The Biden administration is trying to take a middle-of-the-road approach, said Michael Mazza, a nonresident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. A diplomatic boycott, especially on a unilateral basis, is unlikely to improve Beijing’s behavior. For that reason, more steps should be taken to use the Olympics as an opportunity to pressure China on human rights, he said.
Nancy Pelosi, House Speaker, called China ‘genocidal.’
“But simply neglecting to send representatives to watch the games in China, yet otherwise fully endorsing the games ‘for the athletes,’ is weak sauce for condemning ‘genocide.’ Moreover, such a meaningless boycott will not likely affect China’s domestic policies one bit,” reported Breitbart News.
