Mike’s Musings

Random thoughts, opinions, ideas and prognostications on the day's events.

In the 1930’s much of the world turned a blind eye to what was happening in Germany to Jews, Gypsies, political opponents and anyone else the Nazis deemed undesirable. During the war measures that could have been taken to slow down the slaughter were never taken, even though many thousands of lives could have been saved. We need to make sure we do not make the same mistake again. Boycotting the Olympics would send a strong message to Beijing in the form of a greatly diminished financial windfall with the US and other nations not participating.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Uighurs protested outside the State Department on Friday asking that the U.S. government boycott the 2022 Beijing Olympics and to prosecute Chinese ambassadors for genocide. Around 30 demonstrators thanked the U.S. government for helping the Uighur people and asked that it declare China’s actions of genocide against the Uighurs to the United Nations Security Council. The protesters asked the U.S. government to allow Uighurs to seek asylum in the U.S. They said between 2,000 and 3,000 undocumented Uighurs live in the U.S. and asked that they receive permanent resident status. “Right now, under the genocide designation, the U.S. has a moral and legal obligation to act,” Prime Minister of the East Turkistan Government in Exile Salih Hudayar told the Daily Caller News Foundation. Chinese government occupied East Turkistan in December 1949 and renamed the region Xinjiang, an “offensive” term that means “new territory,” according to the East Turkistan Government in Exile’s website.
