China’s Genocide Olympics

In the so-called Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, China is committing the world’s most abhorrent crimes. “An unspeakable evil is taking place,” Nury Turkel, a commissioner on the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, told Newsweek.
What can be done? For starters, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) can move the 2022 Winter Olympics away from Beijing and immediately ban the participation of China’s athletes from Olympic competition. If the IOC does not make both of these moves, the U.S. and other countries should boycott next year’s Games in the Chinese capital.
It is hard for many to fully conceive of the Chinese regime’s inhumanity. Uyghur women are routinely tortured and raped by government officials, clearly with the approval of the state. Girls from minority groups have been sexually violated.
