The display of stupidocrisy this week is off the charts. America sent its athletes to China for the Olympics, but didn’t send its political ambassadors. As if that makes any statement against China. It really just demonstrates the doublemindedness of the Biden Administration and all the politicians that support it. It’s not just the systematic enslavement and executions of the Muslim minority Uighur sect. It is also the forced abortions, the destruction of Christian homes and the persecution of Christians. It’s the slave labor. It’s the ruthless manipulation of foreign exchange at the American worker’s expense. It’s the poison China puts in kids’ toothpaste that is sent for sale in America. Why do we support anything of China?
The “Genocide Games,” is the moniker given the Olympics by conservatives, who decry that China will get all it wants out of this worldwide stage to propagandize its communist economic and social benefits—all the while oppressing the news media and forbidding coverage of the blatant human rights violations that are normal everyday life in communism. China is promoted by American networks and companies that do business with the communist regime. NBC, the Olympic network, falls all over itself to put China in its best light to the rest of the world. Companies like Coca Cola, Airbnb, Intel, VISA, and Proctor & Gamble are among 13 sponsors of the China Olympics. No stand for Chinese social justice with them. They excuse their behavior saying they are supporting the Olympic Committee, which is probably as bad or worse.
It’s NBA star LeBron James crusading about race and equality, yet supporting China, which along with Islam, is the emblem of modern slavery. It’s House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) standing firm with former NFL player Colin Kaepernick when he said, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses Black people and people of color.” Then Pelosi asks US Olympians to stand down in upholding American values of freedom and justice in China, telling them, “I do not encourage them to speak out against the Chinese government there because I fear for their safety if they do.” By the way, Pelosi and her husband Paul have tens of millions of dollars invested in Communist Chinese enterprises. It’s more than hypocrisy. These are the types of people who are selling out America–you and me—to enrich themselves. Character deficit.
The sad part of this stupidocrisy is that it appears that China is winning. It’s winning because America is rapidly becoming more like China. The US government is increasingly deceptive and authoritarian. Companies are all too willing to help the government work around the Constitution to enforce mandates, lockdowns, and narratives. The news media in general is willing to shirk its responsibilities as the fourth estate and propagandize for the government’s socialist, divisive, and disruptive proclivities. Instead of the US being the beacon of freedom and justice to China, China has corrupted the captains of American industry and the politicians who govern them. As is written in 1 Corinthians 15:33, “Do not be deceived: Bad company corrupts good morals.” Of course, that’s assuming some level of morals. Say it with me…Stupidocrisy.
