Democrat Nancy Pelosi has warned official US delegations could be barred from appearing at Beijing’s upcoming Olympic Games – supposedly, if the Chinese government doesn’t make the proper “human rights” concessions.Democrat Nancy Pelosi has warned official US delegations could be barred from appearing at Beijing’s upcoming Olympic Games – supposedly, if the Chinese government doesn’t make the proper “human rights” concessions.
US senators on Tuesday waxed poetic about the need to keep Beijing in line, insisting on their very real concern about the plight of incarcerated Uighur Muslims – despite the incomparable numbers of prisoners confined in the US, which boasts not only a larger prison population than any other country in the world but also a larger prison population per capita.US senators on Tuesday waxed poetic about the need to keep Beijing in line, insisting on their very real concern about the plight of incarcerated Uighur Muslims – despite the incomparable numbers of prisoners confined in the US, which boasts not only a larger prison population than any other country in the world but also a larger prison population per capita.
Pelosi insisted the latest measure was “more about actions than words,” calling China’s actions in Xinjiang “a genocide recognized as a genocide” – fighting words, seemingly designed to force China to act to save face.Pelosi insisted the latest measure was “more about actions than words,” calling China’s actions in Xinjiang “a genocide recognized as a genocide” – fighting words, seemingly designed to force China to act to save face.

The House speaker continued her rapt description of how China had apparently set off Washington-made genocide detectors, though never quite explaining exactly how the situation with Beijing had deteriorated to this apparently desirable level.
She also sneered that she’d “kind of lost her innocence on hoping corporate America or the powers that be following through and expecting people to behave in a way that’s consistent with their words when it comes to major companies and other large firms respecting human life,” a sneer that could be just as easily applied applied to the two-faced corporations doing business in her own government as it could to China - indeed, several instances last year saw US companies land in hot water for picking China over Washington, where they cashed their checks. At least Pelosi's co-host on the call did not try to exclude American companies from this level of failure, though.
“It’s about more than words, it’s about actions,” Pelosi continued, still failing to properly adumbrate the “genocide” label from the existing facts on the China stage.
