Nikki Haley Has a Solution for How to Stand up to China

Nikki Haley is a power-hungry opportunist and an establishment lackey. That’s obvious to anyone who’s paying attention.

She turned on the Confederate Flag at the drop of a hat, stabbed President Trump in the back as soon as it was convenient and did basically nothing while she was US Ambassador to the UN (apart from spending taxpayer money on expensive curtains).

But even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

And Haley just recently found an issue where she’s actually correct.

The issue is China: a totalitarian police state that is committing genocide and which unleashed a deadly virus on the world that it hasn’t even been punished for in any way.

The smog-filled red hellhole has such a stranglehold on the world’s economy that even the US has mainly backed down, with the China-friendly Biden Administration giving Xi Jinping and his thugs the royal treatment.

But Haley has a solution that could show China that America isn’t messing around.

What Did Haley Say?

Haley is angling for a presidential run in 2024 and she could have sounded warnings like this years ago, but at least she’s finally saying it. Haley wants the US to boycott the 2022 Winter Olympics which are set to be held in Beijing.

In a recent statement she painted a dramatic picture of what China is becoming and compared it to another situation in history.

“If the United States had known what Nazi Germany would become would we have participated in the 1936 Berlin Summer Olympics?”

It’s fair to ask what difference it would have made if the US didn’t go to Berlin in 1936, but at the very least it would have been a way to say that America wouldn’t participate in a police state-run event.

At this point Washington has officially recognized that Beijing is engaged in genocide. Beijing is persecuting, raping, enslaving and sterilizing its minority Uighur population. Families are forcibly separated, women are forced to have abortions, AIDS is intentionally spread by infected prostitutes sent by China, radiation from Chinese nuclear tests permeates the land of the Uighur and Chinese police have the power to arrest any Uighur at any time for any reason.

Is that a country you want to legitimize?

Is China the Next Nazi Germany?

The short answer is that likely yes: China is the next Nazi Germany. There is nothing on the level of the Holocaust happening (yet), but China is a high-tech police state run by an evil ideology that places zero value on human life or dignity. They are led by a de facto dictator and have a large influence on the world economy that shields them from criticism.

Just look at COVID. After unleashing a deadly virus on the world – intentional or not – China has basically gotten away scot free, with no nation holding them accountable or punishing them in any significant way.

Still, it’s worth asking: would a boycott actually work?

It would likely be far more effective to try to pressure the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to just completely cancel the Olympics for 2022 or have the location moved. Boycotting the 1980 summer Olympics against the horrendous Soviet Union actually did nothing to stop their ambitions and made them even more determined despite the US and 64 other countries participating in the boycott.

What Should be Done?

Assuming the IOC does nothing to cancel the Beijing Olympics, a boycott may become a more popular option and be talked about in the media. However the problem with Haley’s idea isn’t that it’s too harsh it’s the opposite:

It’s not harsh enough.

China should be getting absolutely slammed on trade right now by the United States, sanctioned, diplomatically cornered and dominated in every way possible by America and our allies.

If the IOC is going to hand Beijing next year’s Olympics then let’s play their game and send our best athletes to serve China defeat after defeat and keep them far away from the gold medal podium. Biden could even make it all about diversity by sending some of our best transgender “women” to compete in the women’s winter sports categories.
