Human Rights Unimportant

The United States new Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, shocked and dismayed human right proponents last week during her visit to the People Republic of China (PRC).  Clinton vowed not to let human rights concerns hinder cooperation with China.

We have to continue to press them”on Taiwan, Tibet and human rights, but our pressing on those issues can’t interfere with the global economic crisis, the global climate change crisis and the security crises.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

The Evil Old Men in Beijing, the leaders of the brutal, repressive and hyper-authoritarian Asian state are now quite relieved. They had previously been concerned that President Obama would take a firm stance against their various crimes against humanity. Hillary ‘s conciliatory visit has removed or lessened those concerns.

In the wake of Clinton’s concession, the PRC’s  State Propaganda Outlet, the People’s Daily, praised her and the Obama administration for “their profound understanding of the importance of U.S.-China relations.”

Of course this sort of capitulation is not unexpected. China replaced Japan as the number one holder of U.S. treasury debt  in September, 2008, with its overall holding hitting $585 billion dollars, according to U.S. Treasury data.  Since Obama and his Liberals are hell-bent on increasing the US deficit by several trillion dollars over the next few years, it’s unsurprising that his administration is taking a supplicant’s role in dealing with our nation’s creditors.

Despite all the seditious ravings of the Left against the previous US administration, this abomination is the real New World Order – the culmination of the Leftists’ dream of  The Post-American World.

    The Democrats lack of interest in human rights and civil rights could cause one to doubt that they truly believe in rights. Was it only ever a club to beat Republicans with?

    No, I don’t so – but that more and more seems to have been its primary purpose. Read Saul Alinski’s Rules for Radicals and their behavior will make more sense.

    Hillary forgot that the Secretary of State’s words carry a lot of weight. She could have put this a lot better. In today’s Washington Post, Anne Applebaum said she couldn’t care less what Hillary says, only what she does in practice. I tend to agree — some — but words DO matter, especially in diplomacy.

    That’s even more true when dealing with the Chinese, who are a very image and status conscious culture, deannaizme. In China words said in public are often more important than deeds done in private.
