Nel 2022 si dovrebbero tenere in Cina le Olimpiadi Invernali, Beijing Winter Olympics.

Questa è una ghiotta occasione per le multinazionali che le sponsorizzano per aumentare la propria visibilità ed anche per migliorare la propria penetrazione nel promettente mercato cinese.

Ma per poter operare in Cina, e continuare a farlo, le multinazionale devono obbedire alle leggi locali.

«→→ In China we are required to follow local laws and regulations ←←»

Queste multinazionali sono in netta opposizione alla politica estera dell’attuale Harris-Biden Administration, la quale giornalmente condanna la Cina per presunte violazioni degli human rights, intendendo per essi ciò che prescrive l’ideologia liberal. Secondo i congressisti, le multinazionali avrebbero dovuto boicottare le Beijing Winter Olympics, cosa questa dalla quale se ne guardano più che bene.

L’eterogenesi dei fini è quasi sempre implacabile.

Biden attacca nuovamente la Cina e questa replica al vetriolo.

Cina. Un j’accuse ferocemente e brutalmente rude, e vero, contro gli Stati Uniti.

«China would not accept the United States taking a “superior” position in the relationship»

Bene.

Questo comportamento è causa efficiente di una sempre più evidente frattura tra la Harris-Biden Administration ed il mondo del lavoro e dell’industria, sottominando la concordia e coerenza nazionale: l’industria rinnega infatti questa crociata ideologica e si comporta così in modo autonomo.

Ma midterm si sta avvicinando, e le elargizioni dell’industria sarebbero fondamentali per il partito democratico.

‘Pathetic and disgraceful’: U.S. lawmakers blast Coca-Cola, Visa and others over Beijing Olympics

WASHINGTON, July 27 (Reuters) – A bipartisan Congressional panel blasted U.S.-based corporate sponsors of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics on Tuesday, including Coca-Cola, Visa Inc. and Airbnb, accusing them of putting profits ahead of accusations of genocide in China.

Republican Congressman Chris Smith told the Congressional-Executive Commission on China hearing that the sponsors needed to reconcile their “ostensible commitment to human rights” with subsidizing an Olympics where the host country is “actively committing human rights abuses”.

Smith asked each of the executives at the hearing – from Airbnb, Coca-Cola, Intel, Visa Inc and Procter & Gamble – whether the games should be relocated or postponed due to concerns over human rights violations. All of them declined to opine, or said they had no responsibility over site selection.

“We do not make decisions on these host locations. We support and follow the athletes wherever they compete,” Coca-Cola’s global vice president for human rights Paul Lalli said.

When asked about the U.S. government determination that China was committing a genocide against Uyghurs and other Muslims minority groups, only Steve Rodgers, executive vice president and general counsel for Intel, said he believed it.

“I’ve read the State Department report. I’ve studied it, and I believe its conclusions,” Rodgers said, drawing praise from Republican Senator Tom Cotton for his “straight answer.”

Other executives said they respected the U.S. government’s conclusions, but would not weigh in on the matter.

The executives represent the five U.S. companies that have sponsorship commitments running through the Beijing Games under the official Olympic Partner (TOP) Program.

Rights groups, researchers, former residents and some Western lawmakers and officials say Chinese authorities have facilitated forced labor by detaining around a million Uyghurs and other primarily Muslim minorities in camps since 2016.

President Joe Biden’s administration agreed with a determination by the former Trump administration that the detention camps and other abuses amounted to genocide.

China denies wrongdoing, saying it has set up vocational training centers to combat extremism. The Chinese Embassy in Washington did not immediately respond to an emailed request for comment.

“Obviously, every one of you, with the exception on occasion of Mr. Rodgers, was sent here with orders not to say anything that could offend the Chinese Communist Party,” Cotton said, calling testimony at the hearing “pathetic and disgraceful”.

Democratic Representative Tom Malinowski rebuked Airbnb’s head of Olympics and Paralympics partnership David Holyoke for not being more outspoken about criticism toward the Chinese government that it has prevented Uyghurs and Tibetans from obtaining passports and identification cards that would allow them to travel freely and register at hotels.

“In China we are required to follow local laws and regulations,” Holyoke said, adding that “human rights are core to our values.”

“You’re just completely absolving yourself of responsibility for being complicit in abject discrimination,” Malinowski said.

Asked repeatedly by Malinowski if Coca-Cola would specifically condemn any Chinese government abuses against Uyghurs, Lalli said without mentioning China: “We respect all human rights.”

Malinowski noted that Coca-Cola was willing to wade into U.S. politics and condemn voting rights restrictions in its home state of Georgia, but would not criticize China’s government.

“You are afraid of them in a way that you are not afraid of critics in the United States. I think that’s shameful,” Malinowski told Lalli, adding that it was “absolutely clear” that the company refused to criticize Beijing for fear it would harm its profits in China.
