John Kerry Blows Off China’s Human Rights Violations To Push Climate Action

If you remember, the same thing happened when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, where she said that China’s human rights abuses shouldn’t interfere with other issues, including ‘climate change’

John Kerry sidesteps China’s human rights violations, says it’s ‘not my lane’

John Kerry climateUS special climate envoy John Kerry sidestepped a question about China’s use of slave labor during the COP26 UN Climate Change Conference on Wednesday, saying the issue was “not my lane.”

Kerry was responding to a query from a reporter who asked the former secretary of state if he had mentioned human rights issues — including Beijing’s “use of forced labor in Xinjiang for building solar panels” — during recent meetings with Chinese leaders.

“Well, we’re honest. We’re honest about the differences, and we certainly know what they are and we’ve articulated them, but that’s not my lane here,” Kerry said. “That’s — my job is to be the climate guy, and stay focused on trying to move the climate agenda forward.”

The US has blocked imports of solar panels from at least four companies that source products from forced labor in Xinjiang — a province in northwest China where Uyghurs and other Muslim minorities are detained in camps and made to work against their will.

Well, it’s good that the Brandon admin did the last, but, really, just like when Obama was president, Joe’s admin and his people do not want to really get into the subject of China’s human rights abuses, it’s use of slave labor. And it’s not the first time Kerry tried this. Here’s in September

Climate-above-all plea by US fails to stir China

US climate envoy John Kerry has told China that climate change is more important than politics as tensions between the two countries continue.

He made the remarks following two days of talks with Chinese leaders in the city of Tianjin.

But China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi warned on Wednesday that the worsening relationship could hamper future co-operation on climate issues.

And in April

John Kerry says US and China’s ‘differences on human rights’ shouldn’t get in way of fighting climate change

President Biden’s climate envoy John Kerry said the U.S. and China’s “differences on human rights” should not preclude the countries from working together to fight climate change.

“Right now, climate is enough of an imperative for all of our countries. China doesn’t benefit by not having America as a partner in dealing with climate. And the United States doesn’t benefit from not having China as a partner in climate,” Kerry told Foreign Policy magazine in an interview.

The Fascism of Doing Something about the climate scam is more important than dealing with slavery.

    The Biden Administration thinks nothing of using authoritarian tactics in the United States, so why should we be surprised that they don’t object to authoritarian regimes around the world?

    But, let’s be honest here: human rights violations abroad are our concerns if and only if advancing them helps us in some way, and that’s been true of both Democratic and Republican presidencies. The only President who really cared was Jimmy Carter, and he was a horrible President.

    I totally understand that Kerry would not mention human rights at a climate conference. It is just off topic. I know I personally get annoyed when I’m looking at pictures of pretty women and some yahoo wants to spam the comments about Trump. The odd part is that he doesn’t mention China’s status as the world’s largest polluter. Between them and India, American “carbon” is irrelevant. Yet China and India get a free pass on climate.

    That mass of oceanic plastic? China, India, and Pakistan. If you want to clean up the ocean, just put a large net at the mouths of every river in India, China, and Pakistan.
