Following a remarkable exchange a fortnight ago when U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken was laughed out of the room by a Communist Chinese delegation for attempting to scold them on human rights abuses, he has now declared that China is right to criticise America’s record on the issue.
Blinken told reporters Tuesday that China was right to claim that the U.S. is guilty of rights abuses against minorities.
“We will hear from some countries, as we do other years, that we have no right to criticize them because we have our own challenges to deal with,” Blinken stated during a press briefing on the release of the State Department’s Report on Human Rights.
“Well, we know we have work to do at home that includes addressing profound inequities, including systemic racism,” he added.
“We don’t pretend these problems don’t exist or try to sweep them under the rug. We don’t ignore them. We deal with them in the daylight with full transparency,” Blinken further stated.
“The way we confront our challenges at home will give us greater legitimacy in advocating for human rights abroad,” he added.
The Secretary of State there agreeing with the CCP that America is the one in the wrong, while Communist China rounds up people and throws them into internment camps because of their religion, as well as subjecting people to forced sterilization and abortions, slave labour and live organ harvesting.
That’s what happens when this guy is heading up foreign diplomacy.

Blinken also suggested this week that the United States won’t take any punitive action against China for its role in unleashing COVID-19 pandemic upon the world.
China has also released its own version of a human rights report, charging that State’s rights in the U.S. is a human rights abuse, as well as citing George Floyd as an example of how America is deeply racist.
