Democrats excluded the Uighur Forced Labor Prevention Act, which was sponsored by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), after members of the party privately objected, according to sources cited Thursday by The Washington Free Beacon’s Alana Goodman. Rubio had offered it as an amendment to the annual National Defense Authorization Act. Presidential climate envoy John Kerry was reportedly among those who lobbied against the provision “over concerns it will hinder the White House’s climate agenda and limit solar panel imports from China.”

China has incarcerated more than 1 million Uighurs in “reeducation” camps in its Xinjiang region, where they work in factories performing unpaid labor. A 2020 report by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute found that 82 companies benefited from the labor — among them Apple, BMW, Gap, and Nike.

In a speech on the Senate floor, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) cited procedural reasons for blocking the amendment, saying “it automatically kills the bill, because it would be what’s called ‘blue-slipped’ in the House, which means any bill that produces revenue must start in the House. The Rubio amendment is a poison pill in the sense that it blows up the bill.” Senate Democrats Block Proposal to Block Chinese Imports Made With Uighur Slave Labor

Until Democrats take action against China's slavery practice, instead of supporting it, I don't want to hear a word from them on racism....

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) challenged the New York Times – a newspaper with a long history of defending communist atrocities – to explain its decision to withhold critical information indicating Chinese dictator Xi Jinping was personally the architect behind the ongoing genocide of Muslim minorities in the country.

China is currently running what is believed to be one of the world’s largest concentration camps in the occupied western region of East Turkistan, formally labeled “Xinjiang” by Beijing. Extensive evidence compiled by human rights experts and journalists has proven that the Chinese Communist Party, under Xi’s control, is subjecting the ethnic Uyghur minority people of East Turkistan to a variety of crimes against humanity including torture, gang rape, forced sterilization, systematic abortion and infanticide, and slavery.

The U.S. government under both Presidents Donald Trump and Joe Biden have formally declared China’s actions against the Uyghurs and other Muslims groups in East Turkistan a “genocide.”

"When looking at Nancy Pelosi and members of Congress, Americans are witnesses to a padded room. Among President Biden, Vice President Harris, and Speaker Pelosi each one is crazier than the other. Whether it’s the allegations of Rep Ilhan Omar anti-Semitism or Eric Swalwell sleeping with the enemy the Democrats are grossly misguided. Then, so many American corporations have become so wildly unpatriotic as many hedge funds invest in communist China as do so many sports teams and news networks. Incidentally, communist China is also subsidized in the Build Back Better bill and offers a sweetheart deal for labor unions but not for employees in the private sector. Later, the United States is on a path to war with China. They are working diligently to disable our communications and beat us in space. They’ve infiltrated our classrooms, newsrooms, and major institutions. "

You do realize the Uighurs are Muslim terrorists who've been fighting the Chinese government for hundreds of years, right?

How is this our problem again?

It's one thing for the Dems to cry crocodile tears for the Uighurs.

It's another thing for the Dems to actually jeopardize their lucrative financial interests in China.

Usually you idiots support terrorists.
It's a tough call in this case -- Communists versus Muslims.

They went with their ideological masters.

Usually I support America minding it's own fucking business.

We have no business invading Iraq
We have no business trying to bring Democracy to Afghanistan
We have no business propping up the Zionists
We have no business telling China how to deal with these Muslim terrorists they've been fighting since the Qing Dynasty.

We need to take the trillions we spend sticking our noses in other people's business and spend it fixing our own problems. C'thulhu knows we have plenty.

Again, the Chinese are fighting a war against Muslim terrorists in their own borders...

We have to go halfway around the world to find Muslims to piss off.

These don't look like people waring against China....

In addition to slavery, genocide is taking place there. Some of the Uyghurs go to the black market for organ trade for left-wing Europe, some are forcibly assimilated, the latter is supported by the Xinians themselves, because it is prestigious for them to have a "European" appearance, and the Uyghurs look something like this.

I think the Democrats are not doing this for economic reasons. They are simply interested in this politically. In particular, this concerns the history of the Arab Caliphate, the Uighurs are the people of Genghis Khan, they destroyed the left Arab totalitarianism in Asia. This is the same reason why the left supports the Hazara genocide in the Afghanistan by taking the side of the Taliban.
