A number of Republicans, including both of Indiana’s Senators, are joining the call to have the 2022 Winter Olympics moved out of Beijing.

Senators Mike Braun and Todd Young are among those who have filed a resolution to ask the International Olympic Committee to “stand up for freedom” and move the games, which are scheduled for February of next year.

The resolution calls on the IOC to re-bid the games unless China’s government “immediately addresses its egregious and numerous violations of human rights,” according to Senator Young, who called on the IOC to do the same a year ago in regards to the 2022 Olympics.

  1. Make noise while you can, Senators. This is the last term either of you will ever see. Primary Day is coming.

    We will not forget.

  2. […] #ICYMI: The @Olympics should be a time when the world comes together. Unfortunately, that is impossible if the games occur in China where they are enslaving and abusing Uyghurs in Xinjiang. @iocmedia must stand up for freedom & rebid the games #Beijing2022 https://www.953mnc.com/2021/02/03/indianas-u-s-senators-want-the-22-games-moved-from-beijing/ […]
