Biden on the Uighurs (Francisco Wong-Diaz, USA, 02/22/21 10:46 am)

I suggest that we should focus on current issues with long-term historical impact and significance. Our older members sometimes drive me batty with dead horse non-issues like rehashing the Spanish Civil War.

Does the current US president have the Constitutional power to release criminal aliens to the streets; open wide the national borders to unvaccinated, unknown people while our schools remain closed; send official letters to previously deported criminals offering them a quick path to citizenship if they return? How many Americans will lose jobs, lives or limbs to those new arrivals?

How about the impact on morale and national security of the current purge of the DOD to eliminate Trump supporters in the ranks under the phony label of an internal review of extremism?

All of these and many others executive actions aimed at changing the ethnic, social and political makeup of the American population in favor of the race-baiting totalitarian Democrats need to be stopped if this country is to remain a free democracy.

Moreover, consider the impact and meaning of the recent statement by Biden people that the Uighur genocide is a Chinese cultural norm. How more uncivilized, criminal and morally bankrupt can you get? Will any other past or future genocide by the Chicoms (e.g. Tibet, Taiwan) be equally explained away by those who wrote in this site that eating cats and dogs is an Asian cultural norm like the Western one of eating chickens and cows. Really, how low can you go?

JE comments: Francisco, WAIS celebrated the eating of dogs and cats? That must have been some time ago, as I have no memory of it.  Regardless, I'm glad I'm now at the office and not on the WAIS Editorial Couch, where our kitties can see what we publish.

And let me put in a word for the continued relevance of the Spanish Civil War--now more than five or ten years ago.  Spain in 1936 taught us a powerful lesson:  countrymen and women can kill each other by the thousands for no reason other than ideology.  Remember Santayana's maxim.

Biden really "stepped in it" on the Uighur situation, as the reports from there are horrific.  Especially the treatment of Uighur women, with the systematic use of rape as a "disciplinary" tactic.  Is there any way to contextualize Biden's "cultural norm" statement, or did he simply commit one of his trademark gaffes?
