Shocking to see Boris Johnson bucking his new boss on day one.
Boris Johnson has refused to describe the treatment of China’s Muslim Uighur minority as “genocide”, despite use of the term by both the Trump and Biden administrations.
Joe Biden’s nominee for Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, signalled a tough line on China from the new administration in Washington on Tuesday, when he told a Senate confirmation hearing that he backed his predecessor Mike Pompeo’s charge of genocide against Beijing.
Mr Pompeo used his final full day in office as Donald Trump’s minister for international affairs to say: “I believe this genocide is ongoing and that we are witnessing the systematic attempt to destroy Uighurs by the Chinese party-state.”
He cited the forced sterilisation and torture of some of the “more than a million” civilians he said were detained under the direction of the Chinese Communist Party in the western province of Xinjiang.
But challenged to take the same step in the House of Commons on Wednesday, Mr Johnson insisted that, while he regarded the treatment of the Uighurs as “utterly abhorrent”, determining whether it amounted to genocide was a matter for judges, not politicians.
Mr Johnson was speaking a day after his government overturned an amendment to its trade bill which would have forced the UK to withdraw from any free trade agreement negotiated with a state guilty of genocide.
He told prime ministers questions in the Commons: “The attribution of genocide is a judicial matter.
“But I can say for myself that I regard what is happening in Xinjiang and what’s happening to the Uighurs as utterly abhorrent.”
Johnson will be forced to go out and recant this, and say that yes indeed, he does believe the Biden Administration’s theory that China is committing a genocide.
Currently, there is:
- No pictures of a genocide
- No video footage of a genocide
- No satellite photos of mass graves or anything genocide-related
- No evidence at all of a genocide
Furthermore: no one cares.
But very soon, the entire media is going to be talking about this all the time, and it is going to be presented as an indisputable fact.
Once again I want to say: I will not be surprised if Joe Biden hires Mike Pompeo. Biden is going to not only be a war president, he is going to be a total war president. He has surrounded himself with Jewish lunatics who are totally obsessed with Russia and China.
This is all just scripted.
You people think I’m some kind of prophet. All I did was read the script. It is written all over everything around you.
