As has been written about elsewhere, President Biden essentially defended Xi Jinping’s genocide of the Uyghurs during a recent CNN townhall meeting in Milwaukee. When he was asked about the ongoing genocide of the over one million Muslims that have been held in secretive detention camps without legal precedent or due process since 2014, he basically repeated Chinese Communist Party (CCP) talking points. He replied, somewhat unintelligibly, “The central principle of Xi Jinping is that there must be a united, tightening control in China, and he uses his rationale for the things he does based on that. I point out to him, no American president can be sustained as a president if he doesn’t reflect the values of the United States, and so the idea that I’m not going to speak out against what he’s doing in Hong Kong, what he’s doing with the Uyghurs in western mountains of China, and Taiwan, trying to end the One China Policy by making it forceful, I say – and by the he says – he gets it.”
And then, incredibly, Biden added: “Culturally there are different norms in each country and their leaders are expected to follow.” Their leaders are expected to follow? Imprisonment without trial, harvesting the organs of people while they are still alive, and mass killing for political reasons are simply “cultural norms?!”
Holocaust. Gang rape. Pedophilia. Female genital mutilation. Que sera, sera, whatever will be, will be, right? Tolerance! Inclusion! The Two Pillars of Wokism! Yet, a Republican, conservative, or Christian saying that they believe there are only two sexes or that they think there was widespread voter fraud in the past election is utterly intolerable! Baylor students wanted a Christian lecturer fired after she had the temerity to question Biden’s (unconstitutional) executive order promoting the “rights” of transgender “women” to compete in women’s sports and use women’s locker rooms and bathrooms. The lecturer said, “What if I don’t want biological boys in the bathroom with my biological daughter? Do the 99% of us who do not struggle with gender dysphoria have a voice?”
Because that is not the kind of tolerance and inclusion that progressives favor.
In fact, they appear to believe the tolerant and inclusive thing to do in these cases is to: “Attack them! Cancel them! Have at their genitals!”
If they really wanted to be progressive, they could just throw us to the lions like the Romans occasionally did to Christians nearly 2000 years ago.
