How can Americans so quickly forget those horrible images from the 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre? Yes, I mean in that Communist Chinese nation that murders and enslaves its own citizens for mere anti-Communist thought or words. Apparently there has been no human rights progress in that country where neighbors are paid to spy on neighbors.
When our own Black and Left Wing American politicians took up the cause of ending Apartheid in the formerly White ruled South Africa, that government was brought to its knees with severe sanctions. Some Americans found trading with that country were imprisoned for violating those sanctions. South Africa did not have or use slaves they just did not allow Blacks equal access to goods, services or allow then to do more than work in certain areas of that country.
China is on the other hand a Communist country. That makes China near and dear to the hearts of too many of our own elected officials and bureaucrats. As a result we as a nation embrace all that they do. We trade with them and buy the goods made by their slaves. We also buy the goods that they pirate from our own inventors and artists.
It’s all very simple Communism cannot exist outside a totalitarian society. Government guns, gates with checkpoints and house-to-house searching make Communism possible. Freedom, elections and dissent don’t exist and will get you jailed or killed. Knowing all this we somehow tolerate our politicians dealing with this hideous Chinese Communist government.
We ridiculed Senator Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin when in 1950, he told us that we had Communist traitors in our government. Can it be any clearer that McCarthy was absolutely right?
This week Wang Wenyi, 47, a reporter with The Epoch Times, an English-language publication strongly supportive of the meditation movement that is banned in China dared heckle Chinese President Hu Jintao over human rights during his Whitehouse visit. Ms. Wenyi was immediately arrested and now faces a six-month jail term for disorderly conduct. I guess our freedom of speech is not so free anymore. I can’t help but believe whatever Ms. Wenyi shouted at President Hu Jintao was in fact true anyway.
Was that heckling of President Hu Jintao somehow a more serious offense than Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney’s physical assault on a uniformed Capitol police officer? Are we really a country where all men are created equal? I guess that’s not the case.
We are no longer a country of laws. We’ve become a really schizophrenic country were we can ignore laws that Liberals don’t believe in like immigration or assaulting uniformed cops. To quote from George Orwell, “Some pigs are more equal than others.”
