Over the weekend, there was a lot of attention given to the Chinese and their talk of withholding medication exports for the United States. One other story out of China has went by without much attention. Last week, Chinese media outlet Xinhua released a story that detailed human rights deterioration in the United States.
The report focused on human rights in 2019 and detailed that since 2019 the situation in the United States “has been poor and deteriorating.” If you read the report, it sounds like it was written by the Democratic Party. It talks about gun violence, wealth polarization, white supremacy and more.
I am certainly not claiming that the United States is perfect, but seriously? The report continues talking about the contribution by the United States to human rights violations around the world. It speaks of the embargo against Cuba, sanctions against Venezuela. Yes, China is accusing the United States of standing against communism.
This is the same Chinese government who has been forcing detention, torture and mistreatment of some in detention centers, solely for their Muslim faith. You do not see that in the United States do you? Yet, the Chinese want to point the finger at us. It’s more than just their actions against religious groups.
The Chinese government has been guilty of discrimination against ethnic minorities, executed thousands each year and torture those in custody. They discriminate against those with mental health and physical disabilities. But China wants to say that it’s a role model state?
This is the same Chinese government who controls the media in their state, enforces tight control over the internet and education. They exercise control over religious factions and censor anyone who speaks out against them. Yes, this is the same country who wants to say that America is horrible.
Do you remember those Hong Kong riots last year? Those riots where people were demanding the removal of mainland Chinese extradition authority over them. China has maintained their pressure over Hong Kong and has labeled the protestors as violent rioters. Media outlets have called them human rights defenders. But you won’t hear that from China, who assembled military apparatus nearby in order to show force to the rioters.
China may say what it wants, but the United States is far superior to China in the human rights arena. Are we perfect? Absolutely not. No country is perfect, but we are much better than China. Our freedoms of speech, religion, assembly, gun ownership and more all make America far superior to China in every way.
The left will seize on this report and say that we are the laughing stock of the world. That we are falling behind. But they conveniently leave out the part about the other side. We are accused of this by China. China would love nothing more than for the US to become a communist state. They have too much control over our economy and products that we rely on each and every day.
We truly need to focus on America first. President Trump has made this argument since he entered the race to be President. We need to free ourselves of the dependence on China, but that does not come at the hand of the “socialist” Democrats. These Democrats (including you Joe Biden) are all communists in disguise. Believe me, I do not hate China. Having spent over 2 weeks in China, it’s a beautiful country that was amazing to visit. There’s one thing I learned while I was there, a bad day in America is better than any day in China.
