The AP headline says “No breakthroughs in US, China human rights talks“. Gee, I wonder why?
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 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.
Yes, he agreed with the genocidal Chinese who have a one child law where women have their periods certified every month by a local minder, where there is no freedom of expression, they harvest organs from prisoners. All the things they list as American problems are greatly magnified there, and include Slavery (yes, they have race problems, or ethnic discrimination anyway).
The Obama state department essentially kowtowed again to Red China. 5.5 months and counting till November.
