IOC Has Clip of Uighur Skier Lighting the Flame Removed from Twitter

The International Olympic Committee took responsibility for the removal of a Twitter video that showed a Uyghur athlete lighting the Olympic flame.

“Twenty-year-old Uyghur cross-country skier Dinigeer Yilamujiang became an overnight celebrity in China following the Olympic opening ceremony, where she was touted as a symbol of national unity,” hailed the WSJ from Twitter.

Lighting the flame were Chinese skiers Dinigeer Yilamujiang & Zhao Jiawen, sharing a torch to represent gender equality. Yilamujiang is an athlete identified as a Uyghur. Uyghurs are minority Muslim group, persecuted in China for their beliefs. Her father is in prison.
Then NBC’s Savannah Guthrie added the political context, and that didn’t sit well with the CCP we imagine. The IOC said it was copyright claim because the propaganda backfired. Copyright only applies if it’s working in the CCP’s favor.

She called a reported Uyghur co-lighting the Olympic flame, chosen by Xi Jinping, “an in-your-face response to those Western nations, including the U.S., who have called this Chinese treatment of that group genocide and diplomatically boycotted these games.”

The IOC admitted they had it removed from Twitter and suggested it was a business decision.

“As the clip contained audiovisual content from the Olympic Games, it contravened the exclusive rights that the IOC has granted to Rights Holding Broadcasters, and therefore was subject to an automated takedown procedure,” an IOC spokesman said.

Farrow tweeted: Desmond Tutu: “If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.”

Here is some more CCP propaganda as they enslave, torture, kill Uyghurs.

When is the IOC going to be investigated for Corruption? Does anyone believe that the CCP didn’t spread a lot of Money around at the IOC to get the Olympics?

Jack Dorsey of Twitter and his successors are CCP assets. They do exactly whatever their CCP masters order. We have to understand that the so-called “masters of the universe” of Silicon Valley are nearly all CCP assets whether they were created or compromised. Epstein is not the only agent engaged in compromising powerful people and politicians. There are many others, including the CCP trained and controlled hit squad that cleans up Killery’s many blunders and leaks.
