Tennis Fans Forced to Remove Shirts Regarding Missing Chinese Superstar

Those who continues to shill for Beijing will soon arrive at a lonely place in history.

In this strange, new world that we live in, it appears as though the global community cannot find the gall to stand up to China – no matter how blatant and abhorrent their behavior continues to be.

Beijing has been leveraging their nation’s enormous population, (and its purchasing power), against some of the world’s most profitable corporations of late, and in particularly sinister ways.  The first rumblings of trouble came when a coach in the NBA made a single tweet referencing a movement for freedom in Hong Kong, and Beijing immediately threatened the league with a massive boycott.  The NBA’s response was to trot out superstar LeBron James to make a cringeworthy pro-CCP statement that will forever tarnish his illustrious career.

Now, after the “disappearance” of a Chinese tennis superstar who had accused a high ranking CCP official of rape, those who choose to seek justice in the case are being harassed in Australia for the sake of keeping Beijing happy.

Fans at the Australian Open were asked to remove tee shirts with the slogan “Where is Peng Shuai?” an allusion to the continuing mystery surrounding the whereabouts of a Chinese tennis star who accused that country’s vice president of rape.

As Breitbart’s Warner Todd Huston reports:

Early in November, Shuai posted a message to her Chinese social media account saying that she had been sexually abused in 2019 by Chinese Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli. But her Weibo account was quickly shut down and the post was deleted. Shuai then spent nearly a month in isolation, not being seen on her own in public for more than three weeks.

These events led to international worry and outcry over Peng Shuai’s safety.

And then…

On Saturday, in a widely shared video on social media, Australian police and event security officials can be seen telling a group of spectators that they would have to remove their “Where is Peng Shuai?” tee shirts. Due to rules set forth by Tennis Australia which ban political messaging.

“The Australian Open does have a rule that you can’t have political slogans … it’s a rule that it’s a condition of entry.

“Tennis Australia does set the rules, and regardless of what you’re saying — and I’m not saying you can’t have those views — but I am saying that Tennis Australia sets the rules here.

“[Security is] allowed to confiscate the shirts and the banner.”

This continued capitulation of the Chinese Communist Party will only embolden the genocidal regime, and those who find themselves unable to stand up against the evil acts of Beijing will undoubtedly arrive at a lonely place in history soon enough.

NEW NATO NARRATIVE: Ukraine Can ‘Win’ War with Russia

Know one would have even considered the possibility 3 months ago.

Published

Well that is one heck of a turnaround, eh?

We’ve gone from watching Russia amass an enormous fighting force on the borders of Ukraine, (all while telling the world that it was all routine and to butt out), to watching those same tanks and personnel roll into the sovereign neighboring nation, all the while worried that Russia would simply steamroll Kyiv and take the whole country for itself in a matter of days.

Nearly three months later, and that story is changing…and dramatically.

Ukrainian forces say they have pushed back the Russian military in the region around Kharkiv in northeastern Ukraine, and near the border with Russia, continuing a counteroffensive that has prompted Russian troops to withdraw from around Ukraine’s second-largest city.

Then came a surprising suggestion.

NATO’s Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said Sunday that “Ukraine can win this war” following an informal meeting of the group. His comments came after Finland announced it would apply to join the military alliance in what marks a historic move for the traditionally neutral Nordic country.

Joining the military alliance will “maximize” Finland’s security after Russia’s unprecedented invasion of Ukraine in February, President Sauli Niinisto said.

Sweden is expected to follow suit with both applications likely to enflame tensions between NATO and Russia further. Moscow warned last week of “retaliatory steps” if Finland joined the alliance.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is drinking the proverbial Kool-Aid as well, having claimed that Eurovision will be able to hold its enormous, annual songwriting competition in Mariupol next year.

Biden Approval Crashes Again, This Time to Historic Low

This is just sad at this point.

Published

Look around your country.  See the struggle in real time.  Watch how hard it is for the rest of this nation to get to where they need to be, every day, and ask yourself “why does it need to be like this?”.

And then realize that all of this trouble is coming to America in what was supposed to be the launching months of a new “roaring twenties”; as COVID faded and the economy roared back to life, America was poised to be a global show for the ages.

Instead, the last year and a half have been filled to the brim with turmoil and strife and not much nice.

US President Joe Biden is taking his lumps on account of it.

An NBC News poll released Sunday shows Biden’s job approval rating has plunged to a fresh low, with just 39 percent of Americans approving of the job he’s doing and 56 percent disapproving.

This was a new milestone for the reluctant leader.

Those numbers represents the lowest mark of his presidency.

Inflation, the economy and border security are the three main areas where voters see Biden failing them. The overall cost of living is standing as the public’s top issue.

Biden’s approval rating has experienced a few brief reprieves over the course of his presidency, but has continued on a steady decline almost from the start.
