New Jersey (LifeSiteNews) — Republican Rep. Chris Smith of New Jersey blasted the Biden administration for turning a blind eye to China’s brutal human rights abuses by agreeing to participate in the 2022 Winter Olympics hosted in Beijing.

Rep. Smith, a staunchly pro-life Catholic who has chaired 75 congressional hearings on human rights abuses in Communist-controlled China, told LifeSite’s Jim Hale during an interview on Tuesday that it’s “unconscionable” that the United States would participate in the Olympic games while “a genocide is occurring simultaneously.”

Although the Biden administration has implemented a largely symbolic “diplomatic boycott” against this year’s Winter Olympics, which kicked off February 4, it has nonetheless permitted American athletes to participate in the games.

“This is the 1936 Berlin Games all over again,” Smith said, referring to the Olympic games held in Germany just before the outbreak of World War II. “Instead of the Nazis, it is the Chinese Communist Party.”
