In a very rare scenario, the Summer Olympics have ended in the year directly before the Winter Olympics, breaking the every other year tradition.  However, human rights activists have already called the Beijing Olympics the "Genocide Games."

Previously, The Floridian reported that Florida CFO Jimmy Patronis (R-FL) authored a letter to the Olympics committee in order to move the games to Florida.  CFO Patronis offered this, not only for the economic revenue for the state of Florida but also in protest of the CCP.

Now, men like CFO Patronis, and Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) who has a long history of calling out the CCP, have found an unlikely ally in human rights activists, shaming the communist country of China.

Back in 2008 when the city of Bejing last hosted the Olympic Games, China "pledged to improve their human rights record, but the communist party reversed its course, intensifying repression." -CBN News

China expert, Gordon Chang spoke to CBN News where he informed the media at large that the atrocities committed by the CCP are "comparable to what the Third Reich did prior to mass exterminations that began in 1941." Adding "These are atrocities that the world has not seen in decades."

Florida's own U.S. Rep. Michael Waltz (R-FL) put it best, referring to the 1936 boycott of the Olympic games in Germany, and said turning a "blind eye" to these war crimes makes dictators feel "emboldened."

The pushback against the CCP such as acts committed against their Muslim population and stance on censorship also seems to be getting bipartisan resistance and not just the usual GOP players leading the charge alone.
