Congress Lectures Hu Jintao on Human Rights Abuses
It’s about time! I think it was magnanimous of us to even allow this bloodthirsty tyrant to come here and visit the Land of the Free. As General Westmoreland so wisely said: “Orientals don’t place the same high value on human life that we do in the West.”
Ain’t that the truth. And just to prove his point, we invaded Southeast Asia and killed over a million civilians.
Anyway, our lawmakers got a chance to badger Hu Jintao on China’s disgraceful treatment of its citizens. You won’t believe this, but — twenty-five percent of all prisoners in the world are incarcerated in China!!! This is an outrage!
And in China, tens of thousands of people die every year because they don’t have access to medical treatment. What kind of government would just sit by and allow this to happen? Here, now, in the 21st century! Tell that backward country to get the fuck out of the Stone Age already!
Throughout its history, China has expanded its boundaries by conquering other people, stealing their land and enslaving them. And these barbaric practices have laid the groundwork for China’s current human rights abuses. You wouldn’t believe the religious persecution and bigotry in China today.
Why can’t the Chinese be more like us?
