Representatives of the New York Christian Coalition and other organizations went to an event in front of NBC-TV on March 12 to call on them not to broadcast the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics but to focus on human rights in China. (Mahoney tweeted.)
Currently, the United States, Canada, and the Netherlands, have passed motions to find the Chinese Communist Party guilty of genocide in Xinjiang. Event participants say NBC should also do something about it.
Calling the Beijing Olympics the “Genocide Games,” the group called on NBC to confront the Chinese Communist Party’s brutal persecution of the people of mainland China.
NBC should do something if you’re still awake,” said Chris Slattery, a member of the public.
Rev. Patrick Mahoney, director of the Christian Defense League, said, “The Chinese Communist Party is committing genocide against the Uyghurs, brutalizing Christians, bulldozing their churches, suppressing Falun Gong practitioners, selling human organs, trampling on freedom of speech and brutalizing the people of mainland China.”
The Christian Defense League warned NBC that their broadcast of the event was aiding and abetting the Chinese Communist Party by helping it export a false positive image while it violently destroys and brutalizes its people.
“We want large media companies to report the truth and tell people what is happening in mainland China,” Mahoney said.
For now, NBC has not responded to people’s requests. The coalition said they will organize more events and call on event sponsors to think twice about what they are doing, as well as work with the political community to bring more attention to human rights issues in mainland China.
