It is a well-known and documented fact that the Chinese Communist Party is currently running an extensive network of concentration camps, in which various groups are imprisoned that the Party has chosen to persecute—among them, Uyghur Muslims and members of the group Falun Gong.

Biden was asked for his thoughts on this grave issue at a CNN town hall on Tuesday, February 16. His shameful, mealy mouthed, and equivocating response is almost unbelievably disgusting.

It only further confirms what those with their eyes open have long already known: that Joe Biden is a criminal and a shameless grifter, that he lacks all moral principles, and that he and his family are completely and utterly owned by China.

The Mother of All Gaffes

Biden made a number of statements at that town hall that ranged from eyebrow-raising to outright absurd, and a discussion of all of them would have to be quite lengthy. There’s just so much material! But one, in particular, is significantly more horrendous than any of the others.

When asked about the Chinese Communists’ horrific treatment of Uyghur Muslims and other groups, Biden began this way: “Ya know, Chinese leaders—if you know anything about Chinese history—it has always been a time when China has been victimized by the outer world is when they haven’t been united at home.”

One wonders where Biden could have picked up this lesson in Chinese history from. Could it have been from the leaders of the CCP themselves?

It certainly sounds so. Despots and tyrants have always sought the centralization and consolidation of their power. They have always made excuses and told lies in order to bamboozle and terrify people into going along with their schemes and handing power over to them. One of the most common of these lies has always been that the people would be vulnerable if the nation is not “united”—where “united” is a euphemism for “centralized and under my total control.”

But of course, when Biden began discussing China’s concentration camps, things only got worse. He said, “…there must be a united, tightly controlled China … I’m not going to speak out against what [Xi Jinping] is doing in Hong Kong, what he’s doing with the Uyghurs in the western mountains of China …”

Why not? Why won’t he speak out against these things? Why is it difficult for Biden to condemn the outrages of a totalitarian regime?

Innumerable quantities of people have died in the Chinese concentration camps. By any reasonable reckoning, what’s going on in them is genocide. The country also has a horrendously creepy and Orwellian “social credit” system that squelches all individualism and makes its people into obedient and cowering serfs. Those brave enough to resist any of this are treated with exceptional harshness.

Why won’t Biden condemn this? This was not a “gaffe.” He clearly said that he would not object to what the Chinese leadership was doing. Given the extensive connections—financial and otherwise—between Biden himself, his family, and the Chinese power structure, I think everyone can all surmise why.
