Chinese Concentration Camps– Does the US Government Care?

Saw this tweet yesterday posted from the Chinese government's American embassy which boasted about the 'benefits' of forced sterilization of Uygur women in their 're-education' camps: 

china's tweet on Uygur women

Is anything ever going to be done to address their pretty blatant human rights violations? At this point it seems the US government turns a blind eye to any country committing such gross acts so long as they are important to us economically (i.e., relations with the Saudis in the midst of Khashoggi's assassination and their backing in Yemen). Curious to hear thoughts on what's going on there.

If anything remotely related to the US election or the Covid vaccine gets a strong misinformation warning, you'd think CCP propaganda would get a warning past 'China government account'

The difference isn't really about which country is doing it so much as it is about the race of the perpetrators. If a right-wing government in New Zealand were doing this to Maoris, the US press would be providing breathless, outraged daily coverage. But the Chinese aren't white, so they can't be "literally Hitler", even if what they're doing is the closest actual current approximation to that.

 They took the textbook vocabulary of your average liberal academic/journalist, showing how easily replicable it is and it is used to deny or justify crimes against humanity while at the same time looking like a moral beacon of human rights. It also shows there's no difference between a liberal and a communist.

Next I expect them to tell us how re-education camps allow social harmony and racial justice while dismantling systemic oppression and that Biden should take a note. So that I can have a laugh at the libs sucking China off.

Never discuss with idiots, first they drag you at their level, then they beat you with experience.

I think we should send in the Italian troops to liberate those people. Don't forget to bring your white flags with you.

Wonder why the media acts like Russia is a legitimate threat and China is not?

Follow the money.... China are masters at dangling money in your face to silence criticism. Look no further than the very woke Lebron and Steve Kerr bending over backwards to justify the CCP's seizure of Hong Kong.
