In true communist vogue, China is spewing propaganda about having received the medal depend on the not too long ago accomplished Tokyo Summer time Olympics. That is nothing wanting an assault on Olympic medal integrity as a result of the USA really received the medal depend with 113 medals to China’s 88. The US additionally edged China in gold medals, 39-38.
So what are we to make of China’s revisionist Olympic historical past? Are these commies 11-year-olds, or what? No. They’re simply doing what comes naturally to communists: mendacity about actuality.
It’s really a matter of medal suppression imposed on China’s neighbors. China is including the 12 medals received by athletes from Taiwan, the 12 medals received by Hong Kong and the one (gold) medal received by Macau to its personal whole. Every of those three states govern themselves and compete within the Olympics individually from China.
The Daily Mail reported, “Chinese language state media has declared the nation the winners of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics after embellishing their medal depend to assert extra golds than Team USA, based on photos posted on-line … (A) week after the tip of the Olympics, photographs posted on Weibo, a Chinese language social media platform, and China Central Tv have circulated which present an altered medal depend — with China additionally claiming medals received by Hong Kong and Taiwan.”
The Worldwide Olympic Committee (IOC) acknowledges Hong Kong and Taiwan as unbiased entities. Macau competes individually from China throughout worldwide competitions, however the IOC doesn’t acknowledge it as such.
As with America’s left-stream media, the Chinese language state media is aware of a lot that isn’t true.
The New York Post additionally reported on China’s tacky revision of Olympic historical past.:
“One of many communist nation’s official retailers discovered a strategy to increase its nation’s second-place medal haul forward of the main United States, by together with the medals received by Taiwan and Hong Kong within the tally, based on experiences.”
China Central Tv additionally promoted the charade and the Weibo graphic. “Congratulations to the Chinese language delegation for rating first in gold medals and the entire variety of factors,” state media wrote.
Regardless of China’s propaganda nonsense, the IOC website maintains the statistical actuality of America’s Olympic medal victory.
Regardless of worldwide objections over China’s oppression, Beijing will host the 2022 Winter Olympic Games starting Feb. 2. Extra propaganda lies forward, for certain.
