This new award “honors” the most nauseating and/or ridiculous kowtow to Emperor Xi. There is such fierce competition in this category that I despaired of the plan — MSM pundits, tech oligarchs, and politicians are bending over backwards (and forwards). But the latest stunt by President-Asterisk Joe Biden (Joe Xiden?) takes the cake.
The mass internment of Chinese Uighurs, which at best is a throwback to the Gulag, was dismissed by the FICUS as just reflecting “different norms”.
During an appearance on CNN on Tuesday, Biden dismissed the genocide against the Uighur population in China, branding the mass internment a “different norm”.
This is despite the American government this month condemning the “atrocities” in the camps, following reports of systemic rape and torture.
He also appeared to justify Chinese President Xi Jinping’s strict control of the masses – and attempted control of Hong Kong – as method for unifying the country.
“If you know anything about Chinese history, it has always been, the time when China has been victimised by the outer world is when they haven’t been unified at home,” Biden began.
Biden argued that no American president could be “sustained as a president if he doesn’t reflect the values of the United States.
He continued: “And so I’m not going to speak out against what he’s doing in Hong Kong, what he’s doing with the Uighur’s in the western mountains of China.
“Culturally there are different norms in each country, and their leaders are expected to follow.”
A recent BBC News exposé showed systemic torture and rape occurring in Uighur concentration camps in Xinjiang.
As a direct result, China banned the British outlet in their territory.
The US Government declared what was going on in the camps to be ‘genocide’, which makes Mr Biden’s comments all the more bizarre.
This is of a part with the USSR’s “useful idiots” in the West justifying, or making excuses for, the Gulags and the Great Purges. But Xi’s gotta have it, as Instapundit keeps riffing.
“Chairman Xi Jinping and President-Select Biden, by the power vested in me by the state of California, I hereby declare you man and turtle.”
Seriously, I mock and laugh to keep my blood from boiling.
And while on the subject of Uighurs: where are all the Arab and Muslim nations expressing their outrage? Heck, where is Turkey — considering that the Uighurs are a Turkic people? Does Xi have all their leaders by the beitzim? Or does he simply tell them “so whaddaya gonna do about it?”
