China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs Calls Gun-Related Deaths in U.S. ‘Human Rights Issue’

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is taking a page out of the anti-gun lobby’s playbook—almost literally.

In a video posted to an official Chinese government Twitter account, Zhao Lijian, a spokesperson for China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, criticized U.S. officials for failing to address “gun violence,” calling the problem a “human rights issue.” The tweet links to a page from the Gun Violence Archive that displays “gun deaths” in the United States.

“Behind these numbers concerning gun violence in the U.S. are heartbroken families who have lost their loved ones. This is both shocking and poignant. One gunshot after another left countless bullet holes in the American dream. The smell of gunpowder drifting in the air set people thinking and questioning, does the democracy the U.S. champions have no regard for life? Does the freedom the U.S. advocates mean freedom to shoot other people?” he asked.

The CCP has for years tried to equivocate their own human rights violations with the supposed social ills of the United States. The American Left’s ongoing campaign to paint the U.S. as racist and violent has given them plenty of fodder.

During the nationwide Black Lives Matter riots of 2020, the CCP’s mouthpiece newspaper, the “People’s Daily,” published a cartoon showing a White House tainted in blood with a police officer emerging from the statue of liberty. In March of last year, the Chinese criticized the U.S. for “deep-seated” problems with racism in response to accusations of genocide in the Xinjiang region.

This latest attack seems to be more of the same.

“Gun violence has become a malignant social tumor in the U.S., interwoven and overlapping with other issues, including a pandemic raging unchecked, drug abuse, and racial discrimination. It has become a severe systemic human right issue,” Zhao said.

“Oddly, as the American people suffer, U.S. politicians keep looking the other way with indifference. They are blowing their own trumpet and lecturing other countries,” he continued. “Do they have any right, any moral authority, or any confidence to do so? I hope these shocking numbers will have a sobering effect on these people, so they can reflect upon themselves and take some concrete actions to improve these human rights conditions.”

In what most international observers describe as a “genocide” akin to the Holocaust, the CCP has placed about 3 million Uyghurs and other Muslim minorities in concentration camps in the Xinjiang region of China. The country is also responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic and adds more CO2 to the atmosphere than any other nation.

Private gun ownership is generally banned in China. However, much like California and New York, the CCP grants certain permissions to those who express a “genuine reason” to possess a firearm.

    As far as I’m concerned, China can go pound sand. They have NO right to criticize US. They have NO HUMAN RIGHTS. Our gun violence is due to criminals getting away with not being punished correctly for the crimes THEY commit. China is the one with HUMAN RIGHTS issues. That’s what you get with communism, socialism, fascism, “progressivism” (if you can actually call it progressive), or whatever else you want to call a totalitarian government. China needs to shut up and go away permanently.

    • Bob February 1, 2022, 1:06 am

      They are trying to get rid of American gun owners so they can try to invade this country without having to fight. They have been complaining for years that our government hasn’t taken away our guns and now there seems to be big push to get them out of our hands

  • Donald January 31, 2022, 12:24 pm

    what about all the people who are dissidents to their government who are either executed or imprisioned for years dor not going along with the rule. Thats a human rights issue. The criminals are the ones who are killing people here. How is that human rights? Talk about duma__es.

    I find it amusing that a communist can lecture
    us on the topic of “ human rights “. Especially as
    they engage in bio warfare , an outright act of war ,
    with the virus concocted with the help of some of
    the sympathetic elements in our own country .
    Communists are the enemy of all God-fearing
    people of the earth . History is full of examples of
    their lies , torture , deception , and inhuman behavior
    toward not just their own , but humanity in general .
    I do not advocate war with those subhumans , but
    to turn our backs to them , allowing their sour fruit
    to rot on the vine .
    One cannot make peace with , nor live in peace with ,
    such animals as they . Despite what is being taught in our
    institutions of higher education , they remain a source of
    evil in this world , and being a “ peacemaker “ with them
    will only result in slavery to them .
    We should pay no heed to those Godless creatures.
    Citing excuses , feigning ignorance of their methods ,
    acting as though they are harmless , could cost us dearly ,
    if it hasn’t already .

      Are you out of you mind? A lot of those island bases you seem to like are in International Waters. As such, China has no right to occupy them. A few are even in Philippine Waters. How about letting them build bases on San Clemente Island off the coast of California? (Of course Newsome might like that idea.)

  • Just Me January 28, 2022, 11:25 am

    It’s quite ironic that the very people who are now, and in the past, committing genocide on their own people are declaring a human rights issue. As part of the bribery agreement with China owned Groper Joe Bribedem and his crackhead son, they must be doing this to further their gun grab in this nation.

    Sell US out Joe and when the CCP takes over, they WILL eliminate those elites they have bought off like YOU, Bloomturd, Gates, Paloozer, Bezos, Scummer and the rest. You all will no longer be needed.

    I can understand the reason for his concern. American gun owners have in their possession about 60 to one the number of firearms fielded by the Chinese Army, most of them vastly superior in ballistic performance. They know they won’t be dealing with Russian peasants or Chinese farmers. Whenever Mr. Zhao Lijian and his ilk show up on American soil seeking to do harm, I’ll be happy to violate his rights–all of them.

    • a11four1 January 28, 2022, 4:59 pm

      I think you will not be the only one Mr. Rogue. There is a great phrase, aligned with handing over ammunition “one at a time”.

  • Pilot Bill January 28, 2022, 9:51 am

    I’m not mad at China for these comments. It’s an incredibly skillful use of rhetoric to continue to inflame the anti 2-A. Their hope is that America will succeed in disarming ourselves. Privately owned firearms is what has kept foreign wars from being fought on our soil. Japan was afraid to invade the interior of the US during World War II for that very reason.

    This isn’t hard to see. They have no conscience that is driving empathy for our families. They’re not even trying to hide their hypocrisy as they don’t care. It’s simply a play. So see it for what it is. Another enemy communist attack on the greatest nation to ever have been conceived.

    The only issues with this great nation comes from sheeple who cannot learn from history or revision it to fit their narrative. Are we mistake free? No. But what other nation has done as much to remedy those mistakes and ensure the liberties for all people as much as the US? None. Not one. China especially is as horrid as they have ever been in history.

  • Stan d. Upnow January 28, 2022, 9:47 am

    Two reasons the CCP would make such comments:

    1) to distract from their own genuine human rights abuses

    2) to support the Progressive-Socialists and other assorted imbeciles in their push to disarm the American public. they see the deliberate plan to destroy America as a strong superpower and are cheering it on. remember why Hirohito thought trying to invade the U.S. in WW2 was impossible. the Chinks think the same thing.

    @ Punisher6. (Your magesty/royal highness) — I understand your frustration with people like Blue Dog. As loathsome as his comments are, we have to remember freedom of speech is for everyone, including idiots. If we curb the speech we don’t like, such as that of the “useful idiots” on the left, then we’re no better than they are. Remember, truth can stand up to withering debates, lies cannot, and he clearly isn’t attempting to debate!

    The best way to deal with Blue Dog is to totally ignore him. 1) Do not read his posts. 2) Do not feed the troll — waste valuable time responding to his pathetic drivel. 3) Then you’ll be happier, calmer, and have more time for target practice!

  • Nicholas January 28, 2022, 8:59 am

    • Stan d. Upnow January 28, 2022, 10:20 am

      You’re missing something. Dr. Falsie and his cohort at the NIH are the ones who initiated & funded the virus research with the goal of realizing “gain of function,” i.e., weaponizing the virus.

      I’m not big on conspiracy theories, but I can’t help but wonder at the timing of the release of Covid-19. Just before the 2020 election campaign heated-up and with Trump as our sitting president, almost certain to win reelection. The Progressive-Socialists used every BS tactic they could dream of to bash him over his handling of the response to the virus. Some analysts even say it was a major factor in Obiden getting as many votes as he did. And don’t forget the ChiComs hated him too, due to his get-tough policies towards them.
      Just some food for thought.

        I’m not ‘all-in’ with that either. But along with your point, consider this first hand observation, and of any reader, regarding this astounding preponderance of evidence….

        I’ve driven all over the country lately, west and a good deal of the east, last October 2019 through this January 2022. MO. OH. PA. IL. MI. MN. WI. WV. VA. KS. NE. IA. UT. NV. CO. AZ. NM. TX. CA. (4 months!) OK. AR.
        I cannot name or even recall any but the tiniest sprinkled quantity/ percentage of Biden-Harris physical material; billboards (paid for OR private), window stickers, t-shirts, blue trucker caps, yard signs, sound trucks, mailers, handbills, sides of entire buildings…..and just a few days after election that clown couldn’t even fill a town hall meeting. The organizer pushed everyone into front couple rows, filming right behind them implying high attendance.

        How could such an ‘overwhelming base’ catch buyers remorse that fast? Talk about a speedy virus! ! !
        Falling poll numbers, ain’t no mask causing that either.
        Who recalls the numbnuts who couldn’t even win HIS OWN STATE, Albert Somebody?

Where was the outpouring of support when we were playing cowboys and Afghanis? Put any one of those Uyghurs in Minnesota and these same folks cannot be bothered or worse yet, complain about how she should go back to her own country. Where is the outpouring of support for children in concentration camps on our own borders or even American children gunned down in schools all across America?

    • Stan d. Upnow January 28, 2022, 1:53 pm

      Where do I even start?

      Mr. Lijian’s comments, whether there’s any truth to them or not, are Not spoken out of altruistic motives. He is an operative of the CCP, and as such will implement approved methods of propaganda for one express purpose– to compromise America. Period.

      Your comment about Bush Jr.’s incursion into Iraq wasn’t about oil, or “avenging” his daddy(how’d you even come-up with that??) . It was about Saddam’s possession of WMDs. As it turned-out, that report was based on erroneous intelligence. Yes, it was an unfortunate blunder, like all too many U.S. foreign policy gaffs. But, your take on it is wrong.

      “Children in concentration camps.” Uh, maybe you’re not aware of it, but under the present Progressive-Socialist regime’s open-borders policy, overwhelming hordes of unaccompanied minors are flooding into our country. There are inadequate facilities to temporarily house them, hence over-crowding. Blame the one’s you voted for in 2020.

      As far as kids being murdered by their classmates in school goes, there is outrage for sure. Only you and your friends’ answer to that is to ban firearms, depriving law-abiding citizens of their Constitutional rights. Those who don’t have their heads buried up their butts have sane, workable solutions. But, those fall on deaf ears, like yours.

      Sorry pal, your Feelings don’t cut it. Facts & rationality take precedence on every issue.

        As it turned-out, that report was based on erroneous intelligence.

        Actually it wasn’t. Bush just waited so long before actually invading that they had time to move the WMDs out of country or buried in the desert like some of those fighter jets we found buried. Doesn’t make what he did right though. Both Bushes broke their word on what they would do. Daddy Bush “Read my lips, no new taxes” he violated before the year was out. Bush 2 promised, among other things to abolish the Department of Education, and instead he doubled their budget. Both of them were as bad as any democrat up until Bill got into office

      Don’t forget (Dem) Senator Paul Wellstone MN who tried to stop the march towards war by using the filibuster and looked what happened to him and his family. It was reminiscent of the Clinton years with a political threat dying in a plane crash and a warning that your loved ones are NOT safe if you cross the line.

      So, where are the peaceniks on the left trying to stop that political whore in the WH from pushing for a war against Russia? Where are the peaceniks calling to the War Powers Act to be enforced and Congress to do their duty? Where are the peaceniks trying to preserve the filibuster?

      Tell us what an old baby boomer like you is doing to prevent that POS in the WH from pushing the US into another war today?

      Where were you saying when Will Jeff dragged the US into wars including Sebia?

      What were you saying after BHO’s killed Ghadaffy (sp?)?

      What were you saying when Trump did NOT start any new wars?

      What were you saying when the POS in the WH got 13 service members blown up in the ill conceived exit from Afghanistan?

      What were you saying when that POS in the WH killed innocent people in a drone strike after he got 13 service members killed?

      I guess the old baby boomer peaceniks have become a lot like the partisan pin heads from generation Z.

        Did Obama actually get Ghadafi? I thought his own people pulled him out of a culvert and finished off that dictator, Mussolini style.

        Clinton did get us involved in several unjust wars to divert the headlines from how the Republicans were jealous that he was getting some. Was that the fault of Clinton, the Republicans dogging him over his affairs or the media who gave those Republicans a platform? They made a movie about it called Wag the Dog. Monica Lewisnski was kinda cute – still is – but she is not worth going to war over à la Helen of Troy.

        The withdrawal from Afghanistan didn’t go well. We shouldn’t have been there for 20 years; what else could our blood and treasure buy there? He had the courage to end a generations-long, pointless war.

        Does anyone really think we would go to war over Russia doing war games on the Ukrainian border? Consider the name – Ukraine means marches or border regions, which is why we used to call it “THE Ukraine” and makes it related to place names like Mercia or Denmark. The Russian name for that region is Little Russia, compared to Greater Russia and White Russia (Belarus). What can American blood and treasure buy in the Ukraine? Russia annexed Crimea 8 years ago, why is it a problem now? Transnistria tried to join Russia around the same time, you don’t hear word one about Moldova.

        Do you care about the plight of the Uyghurs, Kane? What about the oppressed Muslim minority in Palestine? Honestly, how does the plight of the Uyghurs affect your daily life? Does it affect your supply of probiotics?

      Oh i really wish i could find you face to face !!

      • Blue Dog (he/him) January 29, 2022, 6:46 pm

        Rather than attack my argument you threaten me. Can you not refute me, Brian? Or does what I say scare you to the point that the only way you feel better is to threaten me with physical violence?

          It will be a cold day in hell before I give a good damn about commentary offered by a spokesmouth of the communist Chinese government. My advice:
          (1.) return to China
          (2.) remain in China
          (3.) live your government controlled life in China
          (4.) refrain from giving advice or commentary that is not wanted, needed or requested.
          In case he (or you) haven’t noticed, there are some major differences between the US and China. We have this document called the Constitution, as well as our Bill of Rights. The (2) most important rights according to the founders were (1) our right to free speech AND (2) our right to bear arms.
          * the rights outlined above apply to American citizens. Personally I think anyone who disagrees with said rights should forfeit all rights granted and be provided a 1-way ticket to the shithole of their choosing, where they shall live out their remaining anti-American days.
