This is beyond bizarre. It is, in fact, definite evidence that the Obama administration can never bow too low to a dictatorship, that it is willing to be servile and stupid at the drop of a hat.
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:
Jon Huntsman, U.S. ambassador to China who was in Washington, told reporters earlier Friday that the rights talks are a useful way to get results on tough issues.
“We’re talking about issues that are uncomfortable, quite frankly, but it is a sign of maturity that we can talk about specific cases,” Huntsman said.
Is it unfair to say that the Obama administration consists of a bunch of anti-American ignoramuses? If so, why?
These people are mental.
The only thing this signals to the Chinese is that they are dealing with a crowd of insane politically correct people, who will bend over and take it in the wazoo at the slightest hint of disaproval.
“They want to be loved by dictators”. That is about all you can say about our nutty professor-President and his administration.
