    Of course,its part of western anti china propaganda trying to make china look bad to people brainwashed enough to believe things US acuses china of.



    Biden wasnt invited in the first place so hes tryin to save face. Lol
    Cant blame China for not allowing that two faces b***d in after he sent warships, planes and nuke subs into china sea.

    its not propaganda. just because you have a hard on for autocracy doesn't mean the rest of us do.



    right some how i doubt that.
    us ships are allowed to be in international waters. just because you believe what ever CCP says doesn't make them or you right. also the us is allowed to protects its allies.



    its not history. its the raving of a nutter. the british's first colony that became permanant in what became the us was in 1610. the british only started using opium as a trade crop with the china in 1760 a hundred years later. the first major influx of opium to china from the british raj was in 1773 literally the same year the boston tea party happened. the british chinese opium trade and the eventual opium war had nothing to do with the us. what a surprise as usual you are lying your ass off or just don't know what your talking about.

    heres a grand idea why don't you come up with your own ideas instead of just posting youtube videos from chinese shills

    As my brother used to say, "Try to imagine how little I care." I had never heard before that politicians/diplomats ever went to the games.
    I am personally boycotting nuclear weapons. Don't even TRY to sell me one.

    Take heart from the fact that the boycott response to Nazi Germany was pretty feeble: 1936 Olympics Boycott debate

    And today's opportunistic crusaders in the West arguably get more of a career boost from posturing about social injustice in their own realms. Which is to say, wailing about what the CCP does to its own Han majority, and to those of Middle-Eastern descent and other minorities, may score far fewer points for those valiant activists. China is a huge market they don't want to be excluded from, too.

    While the Chinese government for all intents and purposes may be fascist now (nationalist characteristics combined with parasitism on capitalism), it still parades that old-fashioned communist facade. Which is to say, the latter surely produces a few heart tugs on the sweet memories of western Leftists, passed down from both their genetic and intellectual ancestors.

    You're projecting anger in the wrong direction.

    They're not the ones persecuting Uyghurs, putting the shackles on free speech in Hong Kong, frowning on LGBT, etc.

    South Park (segment) - season 23 - episode #2


    What an irony it is that communist countries (as well as the regimes that sometimes arise from their ashes, like the one in Russia) are the very places that social justice activists can't protest or criticize the government. Considering that Marx's original class-based oppression conspiracy template is what their later expansions and refinements to new population-group pursuits are intellectually and incrementally descended from. (New Left).

    That contrariness or perversity is certainly nothing funny though. The mass killings committed under communism far outnumber even the handiwork of the Nazis.

    But one might rarely apprehend that fully in the West, due to the acrobatic apologetics that Euro and Anglophone scholars have outputted over the decades for those grand ole Jacobin-roots, Father Karl, and red-rose traditions ("as with most academics, philosophers lean left").

    With regard to the facetious video above... Don't worry about the delicate political sensitivities of the CCP priesthood. Since, AFAIK, the Chinese Communist Party banned the impieties and sacrileges of South Park long before that 2019 installment.

    Attending the Olympics in China this or any other year would be no better than attending the 1936 Munich Olympics hosted by Adolf Hitler. If it wasn't already political from the very start the Communist Party of China wouldn't have bothered offering to host it or spending billions of dollars on it.

    Canada should boycott these Olympics in full just based on the recent hostage taking of Canadian diplomats Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig to exchange for Chinese criminal Meng Wanzhou (if they were really spying as accused then China would never have released them), let alone the genocides and suppression of human freedom taking place within China in increasing amounts every year. Any athlete who wants to go should receive no national endorsement, financing or any other form of assistance whatsoever, they can go as private citizens paying for their own lunch ticket and do whatever they want as such.

    Not only should these and all future Chinese and Russian events be boycotted in full, but the international organizers of these events should be under criminal investigation for taking bribes and the countless other indiscretions they engage in, and warned that they could be facing felony charges if they ever set foot in Canada or any other nation that wants to do the right thing.

    Fascist countries like China pump their athletes full of steroids and cheat in every other manner possible so there's no sense in sending Canadian athletes to compete on an uneven playing field when international organizations hold us to a completely different set of regulations and standards, even if we were to ignore the ongoing barbaric genocides and rights suppression in China and all the middle class fascists there who support it.

    Unless you can prove chinese taking drugs stop lying.

    Pushing drugs in China will get you DEATH sentence.no ends ifs or buts.

    Only Genocide was commited by ISIS brainwashed fanatics,



    I know huge number of busines people living traveling in China such as Blondie in China,
    and Gweilo60 and
    The China traveler and Numuves and Barrett and Daniel Dumbril and Reporterfy media
    and Alex absolute
    And Jerry Goode and FerMuBe chanel and Katherines journey to the east chanel and none of them found any concentration camps that our western media keeps lying about.

    With all the spy satelites we have Up there no one can give any precise Google map coordinates,why is that?
    Bc its all BS invented by western media tryin to make china look bad.

    You have no clue what the word fascist means. Acording to US statistics 95% of chinese love CCP.
    How many americans love their Gov? Do tell.

    Yes you can critisize the CCP even visitors to china,direct ph number is 12345 btw.




    Chinese on democracy


    Canada kidnaping of Huawei cfo on Trampy orders acusing her of crime was attempt to steal their tech just like US did w Japanese Toshiba and German Siemens and French Alsom co.back then.

    Didnt work out bc China wont roll over and be pushed around.
    Two Michaels were spies plain n simple.

    Only if those drugs run against the interests of the Communist Party. Drugs that help win Olympic events reflect well on the Party.

    China is committing genocide too, but it's interesting that you single out ISIS and don't even mention Genghis Khan, imperial Japan etc.

    The BBC showed satellite photos of China removing gates, fences and walls in a concentration camp to make it look more open right before their reporters arrived, then putting it all back afterwards. They also caught Chinese officials on camera yelling at other officials for doing a bad job of lying about the whole thing. No one cares who you know, personal anecdotes mean nothing. The fact that censorship of basic information even exists in China is itself enough information for intelligent people to conclude what's really going on there.

    No, this time you've gone and done it to yourselves.

    US doesn't keep statistic on how many Chinese vote for what because China itself doesn't allow such statistics to be tracked and people can be punished in China for having an opinion the CCP deems wrong. The CCP is today more fascist and corrupt than any party that has ever ruled over America in its entire history. They can't call themselves communists when the wealth gap between the governing class and the rest of the population is even bigger in China than it's ever been in the US.

    Last time the CCP allowed itself to be criticized was during Mao's time, and when the criticism started to become serious they shut it right down.

    No, Miss Wanzhou voluntarily showed up in Canada without any diplomatic credentials and we processed an extradition request for her. She got to stay in a nice big mansion and travel around Vancouver the whole time and she always had it 1000 times better than the two Michaels locked up in cages in China. The Canadian government should withdraw all of its diplomatic staff and other officials in China, expel all Chinese officials in Canada, arrest all Chinese citizens in Canada receiving money from the Chinese government to cause political agitation, ban all further Chinese investment in Canada and all Canadian investment in China.

    No one wants to push you around, you're the ones looking for people to push around to make up for several centuries of national shortcomings. You should be banned from ever setting foot in Canada, plain and simple, and Canadians should be warned to stay clear of you.

    What were they spying on? Your COVID labs?

    You really have no grounds to call anyone a propagandist when almost all your YouTube posts that you use as a substitute for thinking are literal state propaganda for the proc

    Do you post anything other than propaganda videos? Because it's getting ridiculous and it's not welcome here.
    Ya. China and it's despotic government is so great, that's why you live in Canada.

    Stop with the propaganda. No one is buying it. You're just spamming the same videos across multiple threads.

    Unless you are the government - then you are rewarded.

    In the 1980s and 1990s there were Chinese doping programs for their athletes. In 1995, Wang Junxia and nine other Chinese Olympic athletes coached by Ma Junren (an infamous Chinese track coach) testified that they were forced to take "large doses of illegal drugs over the years." Chen Zhangho, the Chinese team doctor for the Chinese contingent at the Los Angeles, Seoul and Barcelona Olympics, did not deny this. Instead he said "well, everyone does it, so it's not so bad." Over the years, 15 Chinese athletes have had their medals stripped because they were found to be taking illegal performance enhancing drugs.

    Yeah I stopped watching ages ago. Ever since Ben Johnson had his 100m sprint world record stripped because he got caught taking steroids while everyone else in the competition also took them but didn't get caught, I've felt that Canada gets the short end of the stick in these things. Either let everyone take steroids, growth hormone etc. as much as they want and wreck their bodies in the long term for the sake of short term vanity, or test and punish everyone equally.

    But beyond all the cheating, the corruption itself is utterly disgusting. I have no desire to fill the pockets of some random old boys' club just because they own the naming rights to an event they had no part in originally creating, especially if they're just going to take bribes and sell out to the highest bidding fascist of the day. If it wasn't entirely political from top to bottom, countries like Russia and China wouldn't even send athletes to these events, let alone bulldoze entire neighbourhoods and villages without compensation to make room for them.
