This is not freedom of the press and this is not a scene that should occur in a country the world has sent its finest athletes to represent them on the global stage. A multitude of concerns surrounding China and its human rights abuses have made athletes scared about having any protection when it comes to freedom of speech.

Republican Representative Dan Crenshaw of Texas tweeted the video of a Dutch reporter quite literally being yanked off of camera during his television hit by a Chinese government official. “Day 1 of the Winter Olympics and the CCP has already physically pulled a Dutch reporter off air,” Crenshaw tweeted. “Where are the woke NBA, Nike, and Hollywood China apologists?” he added.

It was suspected that the “Public Security Volunteers” who were seen pushing the reporter away were upset that he was filming in not so “photogenic” location, according to the Daily Mail.

according to Daily Mail

“It’s begun in China where Chinese Security forces pull a reporter away from a live shot, “Former NYPD Detective Rob O’Donnell tweeted. “Why are Americans subjecting themselves to this? Boycott the Olympics!”

Republican Representatives have been calling on the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC) to keep American athletes safe. America wants to support its athletes by sending them to the Olympic games, but still announced a diplomatic boycott, meaning it would not send any U.S. officials.

    I’m quite frankly surprised that reporters, athletes, and viewers of Olympics are so naive as to how dictatorships function. There is and has been no free speech, freedom to assemble (ie Tieneman Square), freedom of religion, etc even before the communists took over. Y’all assume that if we had globalism everything would be daffodils, unicorns, etc. What you’re seeing at the Olympics (total government control of what is said and what you do) is only a fraction of what the reality of communism is.

Analysts say President Joe Biden is unlikely to “prompt dramatic sanctions action on Iran’s oil exports” due to “worries about boosting oil prices and angering top buyer China” according to Reuters.

Speaking to Fox News on Sunday, House Republican Representative Steve Scalise, said the administration had made it easier for Iran to sell its oil, generating revenues that were being used to “go fund terrorist activity.”

The Biden administration has maintained for months that among its primary goals is to keep the Gaza conflict between terror group Hamas and Israel from turning into a wider regional war. However, House Republican leaders accused President Joe Biden of failing to enforce existing measures and said they would take up this week a series of bills to sharpen sanctions on Iran.

Kimberly Donovan, a sanctions and anti-money laundering expert at the Atlantic Council, said that oil-related sanctions have not been strictly enforced in the past couple of years.

“I would not expect the administration to tighten enforcement in response to Iran’s missile and drone attacks against Israel over the weekend, mainly for concerns (that) could lead to increases in oil prices,” she said.

“The price of oil and ultimately the prices of gas at the pump become critical during an election year.”
