The United States and China are in talks about human rights. Mao Tse Tung murdered or was responsible for the deaths of at least 70 million of his fellow citizens during the decades that he ruled with an iron hand so China is not in a very good position to lecture us on human rights. Nevertheless, Assistant Secretary of State Michael Posner apologizes to China for Arizona’s attempt to enforce U.S. immigration laws.
This is unfreakingbelievable, even for the Obama administration:
The United States and China reported no major breakthroughs Friday after only their second round of talks about human rights since 2002.
The Obama administration wants to push Beijing to treat its citizens better, but it also needs Chinese support on Iranian and North Korean nuclear standoffs, climate change and other difficult issues. …
[Assistant Secretary of State Michael] Posner said in addition to talks on freedom of religion and expression, labor rights and rule of law, officials also discussed Chinese complaints about problems with U.S. human rights, which have included crime, poverty, homelessness and racial discrimination.
He said U.S. officials did not whitewash the American record and in fact raised on its [sic] own a new immigration law in Arizona that requires police to ask about a person’s immigration status if there is suspicion the person is in the country illegally.
What an idiot! China murdered millions of its citizens who opposed the government’s Communist policies and allows most of its people little or no freedom. We, on the other hand, enforce our immigration laws. No, wait–actually we don’t. That’s why Arizona had to take a shot at it. Oh, by the way, Michael Posner, you clueless moron–China actually does enforce its immigration laws.
These dopes are actually proud of themselves for being morally and historically ignorant:
Yeah, they’re leftists. Moral idiocy and willful ignorance together, it’s their schtick.
