Happy the NHL, and Canada, will go to the Olympics, for the players, as well as all the other athletes.. but absolutely disgusted the IOC chose China to host in the first place. With China's history of systemic human rights abuses, invasion of and take over of Tibet, ongoing genocide of the Uyghur people, not to mention the kidnapping, show trial, and holding for ransom of Canadian citizens, China should never be hosting any international event, by any organization, that pretends to support human rights and world peace.
But, based on the history of the IOC, all the way back to its support of Nazi Germany, one should not be surprised, the IOC licks the boots of the CCP for cash. The IOC is one reason they invented Swiss bank accounts.

I'd love to see the Canadian team march into the Olympic closing ceremonies carrying banners saying "Stop the Genocide, Free the Uyghur People", and/or "CCP.. Free Michael Kovrig - Free Michael Spavor"


I could see people looking back on this Olympics and questioning why on earth the Olympics were there that year, similar to how we look back on the German hosted Olympics in the 1930s.


China is the equivalent of the Nazis is not a take I expected to read about on Oilfans today. I do find it interesting that the US occupied Afghanistan for 2 decades and bombed them into oblivion, and no one is saying that the US shouldn't be allowed to host the Olympics. Yet, we're all of a sudden outraged that China might go in and mine resources in Afghanistan. It's not like Canadian companies exactly have squeaky clean records when it comes to exploiting developing nations for their natural resources either.


I wouldn't say that China is the same as the Nazis, and I am with Adam that I hope we aren't 3 years away from a direct war with them (and for the record I don't think we are). However, China has the genocide in common with 1930s Germany, and I really don't see what China has been doing the the Uyghurs as having any equivalency to what the United States did in Afghanistan at all. I know that is not what you are using as the comparison in your comment, but that was what I was thinking as I wrote mine.

I am guessing that in the 1930s, people were generally ok with Germany hosting the games (Olympics were in 1936, and Hitler was Time Man of the Year in 1938), just as it seems like people seem to be generally ok with China hosting them in 2022. But years from now perhaps more is brought to light about China that will change people's perception. I have no idea if that will happen, since so many people seem totally cool with China right now in their current state, but it's just something I wonder.
