There is a reason his handlers try to keep Joe Biden away from the cameras. When he speaks, he has an alarming tendency to say exactly what he thinks. That was on full display during a recent CNN town hall event at which Joe appeared.
Discussing China and its policies toward its citizens, Joe explained that he understands that it is a priority of Xi Jinping, China’s brutal strongman dictator, to maintain a “united tightly controlled China.” This was, according to Biden, a consequence of abuse the Chinese suffered in the past when “they were victimized by the outer world.” Joe also suggested that Xi’s methods of ensuring this cohesion were simply a matter of China having different social “norms.”

To understand the depths of the issues here and the cowardice of Biden’s remarks let’s take a quick look at modern China and how it applies its “norms.”
Modern-day China as it currently exists under the domination of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is no more a cohesive, historic entity than the USSR was. The CCP forcibly conquered a number of independent nations on its borders and incorporated them into its Communist empire. The CCP is now engaged in a long-term, methodical effort to eradicate the cultures of these independent nations with the goal of snuffing out all resistance to its rule. These nations include Tibet, East Turkestan, and Southern Mongolia. Next up for the CCP will be Taiwan. Hong Kong is being “assimilated” as we speak.
That an American President would describe the Communist takeover of independent nations and their enslavement as simply a matter of ensuring “control at home” is already disgusting enough. For almost fifty years this nation stood by the captive nations of the USSR and refused to accept their enslavement. We did not rest until those nations were free.
Now, an American President kowtows before a Chinese thug and states he understands the necessity for control.
What is perhaps worse, though, is that Biden sweepingly refers to the methods used by the Chinese to ensure this control as simply a matter of their having different norms.
The residents of East Turkestan are known as the Uyghurs. They are an ethnically distinct, largely Muslim group with no historical connections to the kingdoms and empires of the Han Chinese. Literally, millions of Uyghurs have been confined into concentration camps where they are systematically tested and categorized for their use as unwilling “donors” of organs to be sold to the highest bidder. The individuals from whom the organs are harvested are dismembered while still alive.
The trade is so large and so lucrative that special fast-track lanes exist at airports near the Uyghur concentration camps to ensure harvested organs arrive fresh at the hospitals where transplant procedures take place. The slaughter of the Uyghurs and their dismemberment provides much-needed hard currency for the CCP.
Because the Uyghurs are Muslim their organs are considered halal and are widely sought, particularly by transplant patients from Muslim nations such as Saudi Arabia.
Conservative estimates are that 25,000 Uyghur a year are being slaughtered to feed the trade in live human organs. The worldwide medical community is complicit in allowing this trade to continue and in sending foreigners to China for transplant procedures.
When they are not being butchered alive for their organs, the Uyghurs are herded into reeducation camps by the millions and forced to work as slave labor. Uyghur women are often subjected to forced sterilization as part of the CCP effort to literally wipe them from the face of the earth and replace them with an ethnic Chinese population.
Tibet is a historically independent and wealthy kingdom. It was never part of China as it was known historically. Shortly after the end of the Second World War, Tibet was invaded and occupied by the CCP. Its citizens fought a guerilla war against the CCP for decades and were slaughtered, tortured, raped, and imprisoned in retaliation.
Tibet remains an occupied nation, and the CCP continues its efforts to eradicate Tibetan culture and incorporate it into the modern Chinese totalitarian state. Facial recognition and other advanced technologies are used to monitor virtually every aspect of freedom and make resistance almost impossible. Tibetans fleeing over the mountains to India are hunted down and killed by snipers in mountain passes. Those involved in resistance activities are identified, tortured, and murdered.
Journalists are forbidden to travel to Tibet. An almost complete news blackout is maintained. Even tourists are seldom permitted to visit this historic nation. Despite this, resistance to the Chinese occupation continues to this day. Tibetan groups outside Tibet work for freedom and try to keep the story of Tibet alive. Inside Tibet, desperate young people increasingly engage in self-immolation as the ultimate, unstoppable form of protest.
Chinese actions in Southern Mongolia have mirrored those in Tibet and East Turkestan. This historically independent area was invaded and occupied after the Second World War. Its people were killed by the hundreds of thousands. Every effort was made to erase Mongolian culture. Most recently, the use of the Mongolian language in schools was forbidden. All Mongolian elementary and middle schools across the country must now use Chinese as the language of instruction.
The lives of the ethnic Han Chinese under the CCP are, of course, little better. Dissent is forbidden. Millions of Chinese are held in forced labor camps as punishment for resisting the regime. With the help of Western technology firms, the CCP has built a modern surveillance state using facial recognition software, a massive network of surveillance cameras, digital censorship capabilities, and electronic monitoring of all communications. It is literally virtually impossible to move or speak inside Xi’s nightmarish regime without the CCP monitoring your communications. Xi’s brutal regime is not liberalizing. It is becoming stronger and more entrenched by the day.
The CCP China of 2021 represents every dream Joseph Stalin and Mao Tse Tung ever had. It is a totalitarian dictator’s fantasy, awash in money and technology and growing stronger by the minute. Any American President with a spine and an ounce of principle would dedicate himself to opposing this horror and live for the day when the long-suffering Chinese people and those of the captive nations can breathe free.
Biden is not that man. He is Beijing’s boy. You don’t have to infer that. All you have to do is listen when the puppet speaks.
