The Uyghurs in China had a friend in President Trump and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. They pressured Beijing over the concentration camps that currently hold over a million Muslim and Christian minorities and publicly condemned the Chinese Communist Party for “genocide.” It initially appeared the Biden administration would continue this stance, but new reports indicate they’re looking for a way out of the designation.
They’re citing “technical flaws” as a way to withdraw the genocide designation. According to Just The News:
“The State Department is reviewing that now because all of the procedures were not followed,” Biden’s pick for U.N. ambassador, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday. “They’re looking to make sure that they are followed to ensure that that designation is held.”
Mary Vought, executive director of the Senate Conservatives Fund, wrote in a Wall Street Journal op-ed Friday that she was encouraged by Blinken’s remarks but concerned about possible backsliding by Biden.
“[If] forced to choose between a climate deal and addressing Uighurs held in modern-day concentration camps,” wrote Vought, “will the president suddenly find China’s crimes against humanity — and religious freedom — politically inconvenient?”
Rob Noel, a former speechwriter for Pompeo, meanwhile, called Blinken’s defense of the Uyghurs “a beautiful moment.”
“That was a great American moment of solidarity,” Noel told “Just the News AM” television show. “[If] the Biden administration is looking for a place to start with a bipartisan issue that they can bring the country together on, the China challenge is absolutely it.”
This is an example of how the Biden administration will be pressured by the President’s friends in the Chinese Communist Party. All of the fluff about “technical flaws” is subterfuge. They will announce that they’re withdrawing the designation for the sake of making sure they do it better, then they’ll conveniently move it down the priority list to the point that it will never be revisited again.
It’s also an example of how the resistance against the Biden administration must keep the pressure up. This issue is an important one, not just for the Uyghurs but also for Americans who do not want the Chinese Communist Party controlling our government. We cannot let this slide into obscurity. When the genocide designation is pulled, we cannot allow the issue to fall into a memory hole.
Withdrawing the genocide designation over technical flaws is a way to reconcile with the Chinese Communist Party without losing face in America. Mainstream media will sweep this under the rug for them as Uyghurs continue to be persecuted.
COVID-19 lockdowns are taking down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the resurgence of lockdowns that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $17,300 to stay afloat through March when we hope the economy will be more open, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. In November, 2020, we hit 1.2 million visitors.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 11,000+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
Join fellow patriots as we keep Americans informed and advance the cause of conservatism.
