Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo urged Americans to boycott the upcoming international games in Beijing over the Chinese Communist Party’s brutal crackdown on ethnic minorities within their borders; labeling the event the ‘Genocide Olympics.’
“I don’t think we should go. I don’t think we should have any American go and participate in the Genocide Olympics. How you would send your child there to compete when if they said so much as, ‘Boy, if the food is bad here today,’ you could end up in a Chinese prison for an awfully long time,” Pompeo said. “I think that’s a modest overstatement. It seems like an awful lot of risk, and I think Xi knows that. He might not well take anyone and hold them, but it’s not a risk I would suggest to one of my family members, if they were good enough athletes, ought to take. I hope we’ll convince the IOC not to hold them there and find another solution.”
“We figured out how to move an All-Star Game pretty quickly. … Maybe we can figure out how to move an Olympics,” he added.
