The meeting was supposed to get both sides to the table to set the tone for relations between the two under President Joe Biden’s new Democrat administration. It was expected that the U.S. was going to bring up issues involving China, like human rights and its increasing aggression in numerous domains, but what was not expected was that China would mock the U.S. on U.S. soil. Many critics were stunned by the level of aggression that China showed to the U.S. and the weak response of the Biden administration.
So let me say here that, in front of the Chinese side, the United States does not have the qualification to say that it wants to speak to China from a position of strength.
The “patriotic” knee-jerk reaction to raise a middle finger to the commie bastards is one I no longer share. It’s about time we were challenged and our bluff was called. Maybe this will wake up a nation too busy burning down its own cities for Nikes and iPhones but I wont hold my breath.
China was not the only one openly mocking America Inc.. Russia’s Putin took to the stage to debate Biden after Biden had called him a killer in an ABC interview. Putin’s mockery comes at a time where Biden has yet to hold a press conference months into his presidency breaking a 100 year record in the process – big “debate me, bro” energy from Putin. Putin is putting his finger in a wound that none of us can deny – Biden is not cognitively fit for office. Keep poking, Putin.
To these moments of American humiliation I say, good. We deserve it. We aren’t a serious nation anymore. During the meeting with China, Yang brought up Black Lives Matter to accuse the United States of violating human rights (has nobody told him we are merely LARPing civil rights?). Yang went on to mock the validity of our judgement of international public opinion or even the validity within the western world.
Yang: “So we hope that when talking about universal values or international public opinion on the part of the United States, we hope the U.S. side will think about whether it feels reassured in saying those things, because the U.S. does not represent the world. It only represents the Government of the United States.”
Biden: Some of its relatively straightforward work, where we’re making good progress, designing body armor that fits women properly, tailoring combat uniforms for women, creating maternity flight suits, updating, updating requirements for their hairstyles…
China and Russia are doing us a massive favor. They are humiliating us. It doesn’t matter what horrors they are doing at home to their own people. They know we don’t have the moral self confidence or sheer backbone to do anything about it. I have very little hope, but this would be around the time a country in our position starts taking themselves a little more seriously and stops the endless babble over the representation of .3% of the population and flight suits for pregnant women from the office of the President of the United States.
