For more than one reason (the biggest being their behavior regarding Covid).


Yes or no?

It would just be better to beat them in competition and deny them gold medals as much as possible.

Yes. They are just as bad as Russia and should be treated as such. But the corporations who own most of the United States politicians and invested big into China's infrastructure will never allow this to happen! Never.

I don't think he means us not tuning into the NBC broadcast, but actually America as a whole boycotting like they did for the 1980's Olympics. But like I said, too many corps in control of US politicians and in bed with China investors will never allow this to happen.

I voted no as I'm generally opposed to boycotts, but I do believe that China needs to be held to account.

This would harm our Athletes who trained their entire lives for it more than it would hurt China. The best thing to do is to go to the games and sweep it so that China doesn't get a single gold. Imagine the shame of ranking towards the bottom in medal counts when they host the games.

China needs to allow the US and others full access to investigating what happened there with covid. If they refuse we must boycott the China Olympic games as should all the other countries in the world.
