While it cannot be denied that the United States is not perfect and that there have been missteps throughout our history, there is an illusion among many on the left that the United States today is comparable to countries that continue to act atrocious.
Let’s watch Silicon Valley billionaire Chamath Palihapitiya’s recent comments are dismissed the situation of Chinese Muslim Uyghur population.
Keep in mind that China holds around one million Muslim Uyghurs in concentration camps!
Palihapitiya says Uighurs don’t cut out for his concerns, saying there are “more important” things about him, such as the potential economic consequences of the Chinese invasion of Taiwan.
Palihapitiya, a minority owner of the NBA’s Golden State Warriors who freely expressed his opinion on his podcast, addressed his criticism of his own country (holds US and Canadian citizenship), babbling about fight clubs in New York’s Riker’s Island prison.
Let me be clear: iIn the year 2022, there is nothing this country does about Human Rights that is comparable to what China does.
While the Biden administration may be afraid to speak out and do something about injustice in China, billionaires like Palihapitiya could stop doing business with China and perhaps have a more rapid impact on a dire situation.
But that won’t put money into the billionaire’s bank account.
Palihapitiya should consider taking her money and at least buying real empathy.
