China criticizes US for its human rights record
Associated Press ^ | Apr 21, 2013 1:48 AM EDT

China slammed the human rights record of the United States in response to Washington’s report on rights around the world, saying that U.S. military operations have infringed on rights abroad and that political donations at home have thwarted the country’s democracy.

The report released Sunday in China—which defines human rights primarily in terms of improving living conditions for its 1.3 billion people—also cited gun violence in the U.S. among its examples of human rights violations, saying it was a serious threat to the lives and safety of America’s citizens. …

“American citizens do not enjoy a genuinely equal right to vote,” the report said, citing a decreased turnout in the 2012 presidential election and a voting rate of 57.5 percent. …

Ah, if only the murdered millions by the CPC would rise up as zombies right now and march on Beijing. You know, the ones with no gun rights . . . never mind talking about equal rights to vote when nobody can vote for anyone besides the CPC in their utopia . . .

Well then they should immediately put an embargo on us and refuse to send us any more of their crap! That will teach us a lesson!

So China has found out about all the hate crime violence and prejudice directed against working straight white male Christians?

Oh, wait...

Bring back US jobs now.

Stop supporting China with exports.

I’m serious.

That’s my position. Should be a standard and unshakable conservative position IMHO, especially in light of national security, never mind keeping the welfare state in its grave where it belongs—and encouraging traditional families, which are the backbone of society.

Mis-spoke:

Stop supporting China by sending US jobs there.

We need to keep US jobs in America, and export goods elsewhere.

:D

I ran “chutzpah” through Google’s translator, and ended up with fàngsì (放肆) which literally means “presumptuousness”.

Thanks.

Agreed 100%.

That’s close, but it kind of understates the case. The classic example of “chutzpah” is the man who kills both his parents, and then begs the court’s mercy because he’s an orphan.

Re I wonder if there’s a Chinese word for chutzpah? Well, try “Tibet” as being Chinese. Now that is chutzpah.

When my late friend Ed Hunter talked about what became known as “brain washing” (he was doing an Air Force study in the Red Chinese attempts to brainwash/indoctrinate our POWS captured in the Korean War), he really got into Red Chinese “thought reform” and the deliberate “reeducation” of people by changing the true meanings of words.

So here we have Red China doing a George Orwell “1984” turnabout where “human rights” means “violations of human rights” and Americans are denied voting rights while the Chinese people all have them (except for the Uyghirs, Tibetanese, all political prisoners and their families, many non-communist Chinese and many overseas Chinese.

I need an aspirin!

The next time Kerry or Hillary or Obomination go to Red China, please let them stay.

Obama would be a perfect reincarnation of the Boy Emperor, Pu Yi, but he would be called “Pi Yu”.

By the way, for a historical footnote, Ed Hunter was the only American newsman to ever get an interview with the Boy Emperor (I believe it was in the Forbidden City). Ed went on to join the OSS and CIA, and was one of our foremost authorities on “brainwashing” and wrote a key book entitled, not surprisingly, “Brainwashing in Red China”, about 1954 or 1956.

I’m sure the countless millions of female babies snuffed out at birth for the crime of being female since the imposition of the “one child rule” would disagree... but they’re not available for comment.

Given the HHS abortion mandate, the infringements on our right to keep and bear arms, and other new Obama commands, I can see a few openings for criticism of American human rights. Overall though we are still far better than China - a situation that Obama is trying to reverse.

No, they’re either referring to our practice of putting melamine in our baby formula or our rounding up Christians for not joining our official church.

Those of course would not be points of criticism from a communist regime.
