Students at the University of Florida were surprised to discover that Joe Biden recently shrugged off China’s mass genocide of Uyghurs as a different ‘cultural norm,’ with many initially suggesting that it is something that President Trump would say.
Campus reform asked students which President they reckoned uttered the comments, with the majority guessing it was Trump.
Watch their reactions when they were told it was their dear Democratic leader who defended communist China’s actions:
Biden made the comments last week during a CNN town hall.
Biden stated that “If you know anything about Chinese history, it has always been the time when China has been victimized by the outer world is when they haven’t been unified at home.”
He went on to say that President Xi Jinping is aiming to achieve a “tightly controlled China.”
“I’m not gonna speak out against what he’s doing in Hong Kong, what he’s doing with the Uyghurs in the western mountains of China…culturally there are different norms that each country and their leaders are expected to follow,” he added.
Owen and community activist Henry Davis discuss the current conversation on the Biden Administration by black communities.
When you understand what China is actually doing to the Uyghurs, Biden’s comments are atrocious.
More than a million Uyghurs and other minorities are held against their will in re-education camps throughout the Xinjiang region.
After Xi Jinping directed authorities to show “absolutely no mercy” towards prisoners, reports began emerging of the forced sterilization and systematic gang rape and torture of women by guards.
“Tursunay Ziawudun, who fled Xinjiang after her release and is now in the US, said women were removed from the cells “every night” and raped by one or more masked Chinese men. She said she was tortured and later gang-raped on three occasions, each time by two or three men,” reports the BBC.
Victims have also reported that guards use electric batons to rape women, electrocuting them from the inside.
Apparently, according to Joe Biden, this is just part of Chinese ‘cultural norms’ and shouldn’t be questioned.
