On February 3rd, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that while the United States has a humanitarian responsibility to condemn the Chinese government for human rights violations, she cautions U.S. athletes not to risk angering the brutal Chinese dictatorship during the Winter Olympics in Beijing.
Pelosi is reported to have criticized the International Olympic Committee for turning a blind eye to human rights violations by the Chinese government. At the same time, the United States has an urgent moral responsibility for the human rights violations committed by the Chinese government during the Olympics. But Pelosi also reminded U.S. athletes that they should focus on the games, refrain from outspoken thoughts, and not risk angering China’s authoritarian government.
According to information, as early as January 31st, a U.S. congressman urged U.S. Olympic Committee officials to be prepared to protect athletes from possible retaliation by the Chinese government if U.S. athletes choose to speak publicly about human rights violations by the Chinese government during the Winter Olympics in Beijing.
