Obama Administration Apologizes to 'One-Child China' for Ariz. Illegal Immigration Law; Irony Lost on MSM
While the headline of this post is shocking, it will come as no surprise to those of us who know how strongly Obama supports abortion - to the point of infanticide.
Apparently China's reprehensible one-child policy - with its forced abortion, forced sterilization, female feticide, and female infanticide - comes nowhere close to AZ's human rights violations of attempting to enforce federal illegal immigration laws.
From the Associated Press, May 14:
The United States and China reported no major breakthroughs Friday after only their 2nd round of talks about human rights since 2002.
The Obama administration wants to push Beijing to treat its citizens better, but it also needs Chinese support on Iranian and North Korean nuclear standoffs, climate change and other difficult issues...
Michael Posner, the assistant secretary of state... said... 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 AZ that requires police to ask about a person's immigration status if there is suspicion the person is in the country illegally....
The U.S. was represented by officials from the State Dept., White House, the depts. of Commerce, Justice, Homeland Security, Labor, the trade representative's office and the IRS....
To reiterate, the U.S. repeatedly broached the topic. From the news conference transcript:
Q Did the recently passed AZ immigration law come up? And if so, did they bring it up? Or did you bring it up?
MR. POSNER: We brought it up early and often. It was mentioned in the 1st session and as a troubling trend in our society, and an indication that we have to deal with issues of discrimination or potential discrimination....
The AP failed to mention another reason the Obama administrationn wants to make nice with China: forbearance with its loans to us.
And the AP and MSM's ignorance - or want to ignore - China's one-child policy was glaring in this news conference. They questioned every potential human rights violation in China but that.
MSM's ignorance on this issue would also explain its failure to recognize yet another subliminal reason for a weak administration such as Obama's to attempt to appease China: China's increasingly lopsided male-to-female ratio only increases the odds its military will surpass ours in short order.
