Nancy Pelosi is always looking out for herself over the country.
She can’t believe anyone would disagree with her.
And you won’t believe who Pelosi ran cover for with this disgusting call for censorship.
The controversial 2022 Winter Olympics are underway in Beijing, China.
The event is a propaganda spectacle for the Communist Chinese government to help repair its tarnished image.
After the Communist government unleashed so much havoc on the world, many called for the U.S. to boycott the games.
The Biden regime went for a half measure with a diplomatic boycott of the games.
Now, Nancy Pelosi has weighed in with her thoughts on the American athletes’ role at this politically-charged event.
Speaking before a congressional committee on China she said, “I would say to our athletes, you’re there to compete. Do not risk incurring the anger of the Chinese government, because they are ruthless. I know there is a temptation on the part of some to speak out while they are there. I respect that.”
“But I also worry about what the Chinese government might do. To their reputations, to their families,” she concluded.
This is a stunning move to ask our Olympians to self-censor their criticisms to submit to the Communist Chinese government.
The Left loves to attack Conservatives for telling athletes to shut up and play when it comes to politics in sports.
Would Pelosi have told Jesse Owens to avoid speaking out against Hitler at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin?
The Left showered praise on hammer thrower Gwen Berry when she put a t-shirt over her face and turned away on the medal podium to protest America at last summer’s Tokyo Olympics.
Tommy Spigot, of the Republican National Committee, called out Pelosi’s hypocrisy saying, “Seems the only entity Democrats don’t want athletes to protest is Communist China.”
The call for self-censorship was blasted as weak and cowardly by numerous Conservatives.
This becomes Pelosi’s latest soft-on-China move.
Despite substantial evidence the pandemic was caused by a lab leak, she shut down any inquiry into finding the real origins of the virus.
She’s also trying to ram through the “America Competes Act” to supposedly boost American economic competitiveness with China but is actually a back-door giveaway to the Chinese.
Pelosi’s actions certainly call into question why she’s so eager to avoid having the Communist government criticized.
It remains to be seen whether any Olympians follow Pelosi’s advice but this is yet another example of Democrat’s kid glove policy towards China.
