[New Tang Dynasty News February 22, 2021 Beijing time]President of the United StatesWhen talking about talking to the Chinese Communist Party leader Xi Jinping recently, Biden claimed that “under different cultures, leaders of each country must follow different norms.”This remark was bombarded by US lawmakers and the media.The US media criticized this as a rhetoric used by autocrats and dictators to defend themselves since World War II.
Biden revealed his recent telephone conversation with Xi Jinping at the town hall meeting held by CNN on Tuesday (16th).He said, “Xi Jinping’s core principle is that there must be a unified and strictly controlled China. His reasons for doing things are based on this.”
Biden went on to say that he and Xi Jinping talked about what the CCP has done in Hong Kong, what the CCP has done to Uighurs in western China, and trying to end the cross-strait status quo through a “tough approach.”
Biden told Xi Jinping that if any American president fails to embody American values, his status as president cannot be maintained.
Biden concluded: “Culturally, every country and their leaders have to follow different norms.”
The US media “Capitol Hill” criticized that Biden’s remarks seemed to be explaining to Xi Jinping that he raised human rights issues only to satisfy the expectations of American voters.To make matters worse, Biden used these words to endorse the CCP’s concept of “human rights with Chinese characteristics.”Based on this concept, the CCP can define what human rights are and who has the right to enjoy them.The concept of “universal human rights” means that human rights are not gifted by the state to citizens, but are inherent and inalienable.No law can take away these rights.
At a meeting of the Republican Study Committee, the caucus of the House of Representatives last Thursday, former U.S. National Security Adviser HR McMaster criticized that Biden “made a big mistake.”He said that the so-called “different cultures have different norms” is “paranoia disguised as cultural sensitivity.”
The “Capitol Hill” commented that Biden’s remarks seem to weaken the government’s announced plan to uphold international standards, and it also seems to be in conflict with Secretary of State Blincoln（Tony Blinken）The comments are inconsistent.The latter stated that the CCP’s treatment of the Uyghurs amounts to genocide, and the United States will stand up in Xinjiang, Tibet and Hong Kong to uphold human rights and democratic values.
Biden seems to be sending a signal that he will not let human rights issues hinder cooperation between the US government and the CCP.The “Capitol Hill” article believes that Biden wants to contact the CCP and therefore seeks to avoid offending Xi Jinping.The losers in this are the Chinese people and human rights principles.
At this point, Biden showed that he is no different from German Chancellor Merkel. As the current leader of the European Union, Merkel signed the Comprehensive Investment Agreement with the Chinese Communist Party on December 30, apparently preparing to ignore human rights issues in order to satisfy the interests of German and European business communities.
Biden’s remarks are also reminiscent of Hillary Clinton（Hillary Clinton）When I first contacted the CCP in 2009, how did I recognize the CCP’s claim that employment growth represents progress in human rights?Biden seems ready to put human rights on a secondary basis, just as former President Obama did with Iran and Cuba.
In 2009, Obama put Iranian protesters aside and did not give strong support to their political freedom rights. He also defined the communist human rights of the Cuban regime as social rights provided by the state, thus undermining the human rights diplomacy of the United States for decades.
The “Capitol Hill” commented that Biden’s words showed that he completely denied the universality of human rights.This message is pleasing to dictators and dictators around the world, but it is deeply frustrating to those who want the United States to defend freedom.
