LAMM AT LARGE: USA should boycott upcoming Winter Olympics in China

todayJanuary 13, 2022

Background

The USA should boycott next month’s Winter Olympics in China.

Why would any country that believes in human rights and decency want to allow China to put on a false face and showcase itself on a world-wide stage?

The China you’ll see on TV will look like a small piece of heaven. But while the athletes compete, millions of Chinese will still be denied the basic human needs or imprisoned.

Generally speaking, I don’t think sports and politics should mix, but there are exceptions and this is one of them. It’s bad enough the  NBA cowers to China because of money.

China is our No. 1 enemy, our biggest threat to our way of life. This is true financially, militarily, politically and socially. We boycotted the ’80 Games in Moscow for the same basic reasons.

Of course I feel for the athletes but sacrifices sometimes have to me made.

The PGA Tour's slogan, "These Guys Are Good", is outdated. It should be "These Guys Are Great". After three tournaments this year the winners are a combined 80 under par. At the same point last year that total was 69; the year before that 51. The courses admittedly are easy […]
