      The Olympics have almost zero cultural relevance anymore.

              Should we have pulled our athletes?

                The CCP raped and executed a few Uyghurs in the concentration camps to commemorate the start.

                    I was shocked when I heard on the radio that they had started events. It seems like less and less importance is being placed on them. Can't blame them since the games have become politicized and is less and less about the actual athletic achievement.

                      W started this thread, and I thought heck wonder what ESPN says… nothing. NBC news is was a few scrolls down.

                      yeah, the shine has kind of come off… I always enjoyed events when they were on, but I don’t watch TV anymore so the only place I’d see them is out and about…

                      too bad- still a high bar for these kids…

                        Watching paint dry or going down to the local barber shop and watching haircuts is more exciting.

                            My friend in Prague sent me pictures of an anti-Olympic protest in the city square. They actually give a shit about the Winter Olympics there. It’s good to stand on principles.

                            It would be awesome to see even an ounce of that energy directed toward Israel and Saudi Arabia, and the western countries covering for their heinous crimes. Yemen’s capital city of Sanaa is currently being bombed back to the Stone Age with US weapons. The western media says nothing.

                              Almost no Americans have heard of the Houthi.

                                Certainly there are no good actors in this conflict, the constant is innocent civilians starving to death when they’re lucky enough to avoid being massacred.

                                    Great opportunity to find common ground. No greater uniter then a common threat.

                                      When Xi and Putin pulled that, Biden should have pulled out all our athletes.

                                        Yep. The Olympics have never not been political, but at this point, stick a fork in 'em.

                                        This is as bad as Berlin '36. Xi now and Hitler at that time are very similar - ethnic cleansing, coalescing all power into their hands, militarism, belief in taking their "rightful" place, etc. etc.

                                          China is a master of deceit. We should not be fooled.

                                              Is it bad of me to be happy the US born and raised skater (father is American, mother is Chinese) who decided to skate for China fell during her routine?

                                              I laughed.

                                                I’m not sure it makes you “bad”, but I’m also not sure why it would make you “happy”. Laughing at a young woman’s failure? Why, because she chose to skate for the country her parents were born in?

                                                  #1, parent, not parents.
                                                  #2, she is a US citizen. Born and raised in the USA.
                                                  #3, I root for the USA, so other countries "failures" make me happy.

                                                  So yes, I laughed, and I'm not ashamed of it.
