China keeps virus at bay

Ah, yes. The CCP model of total population control, restriction of speech and movement, and forced medical procedures.

Alas, too many of our current Western leaders want to emulate this.

Very little news out of China about opposition to the next Olympics. Big contrast to Japan where Suga-san, bress his tender soul, was skewered and crucified daily with a flame thrower.

Another reason to boycott the "geocide games."

Many countries could learn from China's handling of the covid-19 outbreak. Sensible scientific policies designed to protect its people not political nonsense to appease certain voting groups.

West Taiwan and its Genocide Games.

Does anyone actually believe any of the figures regarding the virus coming out of China?

West Taiwan and its Genocide Games

Another reason to boycott the "geocide games."

If you read, the US Dept of State briefings, China, which commits genocide against its Muslim population, should take in more Muslim refugees.

No worries, China will do it right. Its citizens are way more disciplined than people in the West, where the police has to beat the cr@p out of anti-vax protesters on a daily basis. Though that's democracy, of course.

Chinese citizens know full well what will happen to them if they protest against the Chinese government.

When it's open to question if a new variant, a little more contagious than Delta, with a longer 'silent' phase, with a severity profile amongst the vaccinated similar to the present severity profile amongst the unvaccinated... could be THE variant in a couple of months, the lack of 'final details on antiCovid measures' for an event almost half a year away seems to be prudent.

And Covid Zero efforts are more disruptive in the short term than Covid Complacent efforts, they proved to be less disruptive in the long term.

After all, if a variant with some of the differences I listed does emerge, the Olympics might be postponed by global demand, but if it doesn't, China will be pretty perfectly positioned to host a vaccine passport open games, with the entire city or province open to international and domestic tourists

Boycott the Beijing winter games and spare them the threat of importing Covid-19.

The world should not play along with China’s Olympics propaganda until the regime comes clean and allows a thorough investigation of the pandemic that originated in their country and has led to the deaths of millions.
