In its latest tirade against America, Chinese state media argued Thursday that if lawsuits are filed against the communist state by the US, then international lawsuits should be filed against America for the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the late 1980s and early 1990s, as well as the Spanish Flu, which happened in 1918.

One of the most notorious propaganda mouth pieces in China, The Global Times published a piece demanding China is “never the one to be blamed” for the coronavirus spread, and that the “arrogance of some American politicians” should take precedence.

“Under the logic of some American politicians, the US is the one to be held accountable and it should compensate the international society, for the Spanish Flu, AIDS and other epidemics,” the piece proclaimed.

It also pointed to America’s culpability for “the 2008 international financial crisis which led to the collapse of countless enterprises and individuals.”

The piece also said America should be liable for “the wars launched against other countries the over the years which have caused millions of innocent civilian casualties and numerous property losses.”

It is not the first time China’s propaganda has brought up AIDS in relation to coronavirus culpability.

The Global Times claimed in April that “If the U.S. really acts that way, it would open a Pandora’s box and result in the collapse of the world’s sovereignty immunity system. It would mean anyone could sue the U.S. government in their own countries – an AIDS patient could sue it for compensation, for example.”

Several states in the US have filed lawsuits against China, to be heard through the International Court of Justice. It is unprecedented, however, for such cases to have success due to sovereign immunity.

The US passed a law in 2016 allowing Americans to sue the government of Saudi Arabia for damages related to the 9/11 attacks. Congress is reportedly working towards similar legislation that would pave the way for action against China.

The state of Missouri is seeking a workaround by suing the Communist Party itself, rather than the People’s Republic of China.

“On information and belief, the Communist Party is not an organ or political subdivision of the PRC, nor is it owned by the PRC or a political subdivision of the PRC, and thus it is not protected by sovereign immunity,” the lawsuit states.

Meanwhile, The Washington Post reported Thursday that House Republicans have launched a “China Task Force” to coordinate a strategy against the geopolitical threat from Beijing.

“All these issues existed prior to the virus and they just continue to grow in importance,” said House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, adding that “The rest of America and the rest of the world has woken up to this and now we’ve got to do something about it.”

Cotton: Woke Left Allowing ‘Evil’ China To Get Away With Forced Abortion, Concentration Camps

GOP Senator Tom Cotton blasted the ‘woke left’ Monday for ignoring China’s brutal human rights violations while simultaneously demonizing the US as a terrible country to live in.

In an interview with Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Daily, Cotton reminded listeners that “The Chinese Communist Party is an evil regime.”

“They are running concentration camps in Northwestern China, and they are persecuting Christians throughout their region, and they have long forced abortions on women or sterilization on women,” Cotton urged.

“Yet many of the woke champions on the left in America, like so many NBA players led by Lebron James, turn a blind eye to their crimes, at the same time we denounce our own police officers, which I think is a disgraceful and shameful contrast,” the Senator asserted.

Cotton charged that China has eroded US manufacturing for decades while “too many politicians in Washington stood by.”

“They have broken their fundamental obligations to Hong Kong. When they received Hong Kong from Great Britain, they promised to preserve its unique character for 50 years. … Years later, that’s gone.” Cotton added.

“They in essence invaded India, the world’s biggest democracy, killing 20 Indian soldiers in a brutal attack. They’re conducting threatening air and naval maneuvers in the vicinity of Taiwan and Japan,” the Senator also charged.

Turning to the coronavirus pandemic, Cotton said that “If Beijing had had its way, we might never have known about this coronavirus originating in Wuhan until it spread all across the country and perhaps all around the world.”

“And yet [the World Health Organization] covered for Beijing’s duplicity for months and months and months. This is one reason the president is withdrawing from the WHO and rightly so,” he continued.

“China is only growing more aggressive, partly using this pandemic for cover. That’s one reason why it’s so important that we’ve finally begun to stand up to China under President Trump,” Cotton added.

Cotton said he wants to see more legislation to hold China accountable.

Iran Holds ‘Art’ Exhibition Depicting US Police As Nazis, KKK

Iran is one of the most systemically racist countries on the planet.

Iran, governed by one of the most racist regimes on Earth, has sponsored an ‘international art exhibition’ using the death of George Floyd to tar America as deeply racist society.

The exhibition, titled “I can’t breathe” includes ‘art’ that depicts US police as Nazis and Ku Klux Klan.


Footage of the exhibition was broadcast on Iranian state television, showing one painting with a Guillotine for “only colored” people, with the blade as an American flag:

Another piece features the star of David crushing the neck of a dove, which is in itself a racist sentiment:

While the collection features pieces from people with 27 different nationalities, it is clearly being hosted and promoted by Iran as anti-American propaganda.

The Iranian regime has basked in the unrest in America, with its ‘Supreme Leader’ and its Foreign Ministry bragging about how racist the US is on Twitter:

This coming from a country that viciously oppresses all minorities, sanctions brutally beating women if they dare to uncover their heads, and endorses the execution of people for their sexuality.

Go on then Twitter:

Communist Chinese, Iranian Officials Celebrate Unrest In America

Twitter allows enemies of America to gloat while censoring US President

As America burns at the hands of ANTIFA extremists who have latched onto the George Floyd backlash, Chinese and Iranian officials took glee in the unrest and violence that is being perpetrated on the streets of major US cities.

Communist party officials have been keen to use the situation in the US to somehow justify China’s brutal crackdown on protests in Hong Kong.

China’s Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Director General took to Twitter (no fact check here) and cited a previous post by Morgan Ortagus, spokesperson for the United States Department of State, tweeting simply “I can’t breathe” in response:

Chunying also retweeted a segment aired on RT that labelled as ‘hypocritical’ the way Washington categorises Hong Kong protesters as heroes, yet the current US “protesters” as thugs:

The difference is, of course, that those in Hong Kong are protesting a brutal communist regime crushing their freedom, where as in the US it’s mainly looting opportunists stealing TV’s from Target, and chicken necked Antifa kids smashing up everyday people’s businesses and attacking them in the process.

There is no hypocrisy in calling them thugs.

Twitter also allows Communist Chinese propaganda mouthpieces to bask in glee over the unrest:

While censoring the US President, Twitter is fine with allowing Iran’s ‘Supreme Leader’ and its Foreign Ministry to post this kind of shit:

Seriously? From a country that viciously oppresses all minorities, sanctions brutally beating women if they dare to uncover their heads, and endorses the execution of people for their sexuality.
