(AbsoluteNews.com) – Some of America’s most elite athletes are currently competing in the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. On February 3, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) warned the athletes about speaking out against the Chinese government while they are there. The warning rubbed one of her fellow Leftists the wrong way.

Reverend Al Sharpton talked about the Chinese human rights abuses and Pelosi’s warning the next day on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” The longtime Democratic antagonist said although he appreciates what the Speaker was trying to say, he “respectfully disagrees[s].” Sharpton went on to say he doesn’t believe the US lawmaker should “normalize what they’re doing in China.”
Sharpton explained that going to China and not saying anything is normalizing “very brutal behavior.” He said China needs to know human rights aren’t negotiable.

The Olympics are being held in Beijing despite the country’s alleged ongoing genocide against the Uyghur people. President Joe Biden launched a diplomatic boycott, banning all US officials from attending the games. There doesn’t seem to have been any impact on the games, which is exactly what Republicans predicted. Pelosi has not responded.
Do you think the US should have completely boycotted the games?
You Deserve the Absolute Truth!
