After Three Hundred Years of Human Rights Abuse Both USA And EU Pass Magnitsky Act
Dated : 11 Dec 2020 (IST)
The EU too has passed the European Magnitsky Act on Monday, modeled after the US’ Magnitsky Act which targets human rights violations.
The Europeans first nearly wiped out the native Americans or the Red Indians from the North American Continent. Then they began to indulge in slave trade from Africa to America.
They also heaped untold miseries on Asia. Now both USA and European Union are trying to Champion the cause of HUMAN RIGHTS !!!. It is basically a tool to coordinate major power games or the new GREAT GAME.
The EU legislation will officially come into force on Thursday. The formulation of the European Magnitsky Act was pushed by the US. The Wall Street Journal published an article revealing how a US politician sent a stern message to the Hungarian embassy, asking the latter to support the passage of the law with warnings.
And it seems that a growing number of other countries of the Western block, either pressured by the US or hoping to please the US, are considering establishing similar legislation. Australia is one of them.
Human rights have been turned into a tool for a small number of countries, even merely for certain political parties and individuals, to serve their own interests.
For Western countries, human rights are not about bringing visible improvements in human being’s lives, but a tool for a small group of States to discipline others they disagree with.
This stems from arrogant Western egocentrism, which was established through their previous military and colonial hegemony.
For this reason, the West sticks to the mentality that they are absolutely right because they are the strongest. This is also the case in the definition of human rights. They won’t bother to take a look at the divergences or hear others’ explanations.
Western countries are simply want to define, and portray those they want to contain as human rights abusers, or worse, evil countries,” said Xin Qiang, deputy director of the Center for American Studies at Fudan University.
China thinks that the law may likely be used to sanction institutions and individuals related to so-called human rights issues in China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.
Whenever the West touches upon the topic of human rights of China, they would clamor about Xinjiang affairs. A large number of Westerners have been brainwashed to believe there are “concentration camps” in Xinjiang and people are living under “religious persecution” there, regardless of whether they have seen solid evidence.
As per The Chinese what China has been cracking down on is terrorism. Driving fear out of people’s lives and promoting the local economy is the best approach to protect the human rights of Xinjiang residents. There have been no terror attacks since long.
The West is trying to use Human Rights as a power tool to shape international public opinion to attack China, attempting to project China as a vicious, authoritarian country via various subjects, such as the latest one – the pandemic.
Chinese say that when these Western countries, especially the US and Australia, play the human rights card against other countries, they might as well examine their own conscience first, since both of them have committed immense human rights abuse and still carrying out war crimes overseas in Afghanistan, Iraq and Middle East. They are in no way qualified to place sanctions on others under the name of human rights.
In comparison, China has never bombed other countries and it has not been involved in war in more than 30 years, let alone attempt to subvert others’ regimes.
China focuses on economic cooperation and providing more efficient and cheaper options for others’ infrastructure construction. Still, the West has pinned China on the blacklist of human rights, as if their aggressive and subversive behavior is the real model of human rights.
