A few days ago, the United States put together the so-called “2020 National Human Rights Report” with hearsay and fabricated materials, which, as always, smeared and dictated the human rights situation in other countries.
In fact, the United States itself has a mountain of human rights issues. Over the past four years, the human rights record of the U.S. government has been full of bad records.
The United States has accumulated a lot of failure of its own system, which eventually caused riots on Capitol Hill; the chronic disease of racial discrimination in the United States has never been eradicated, which has repeatedly led to the destruction of ethnic minorities; the United States has experienced a much more serious coronavirus epidemic than any other country in the world due to its ineffective epidemic prevention…
The United States has trampled on human rights one by one shocking The truth completely debunked the shameless lies that the United States has long claimed to be a “human rights defender”.
Democracy is disorderly and tearing apart
The disorder of democracy triggers political chaos, which in turn tore American society. The monetary politics of the United States distorts public opinion and makes the election a “one-man show” for the rich.
Money is deeply rooted in every link of the American election. There is not enough money to participate in the competition for any important political position.
The Brennan Center for Justice Studies at NYU noted that huge amounts of money dominate the current political campaign in the United States to a degree not seen in decades.” The Super PAC “allowed billionaires to invest unlimited amounts of money into the campaign, drowning the voice of ordinary Americans.” Black Money Organizations “will cover up the status of donors and prevent voters from knowing who is trying to influence their votes.
The Wall Street Journal website commented on November 9 last year that in the 2020 election, American confidence in their country’s democracy fell to its lowest level in 20 years.
Political polarization is becoming more and more serious, hate politics has evolved into a national “pestilence”, and post-election riots led to the fall of Congress.
In recent years, the gun trade and shooting incidents in the United States have reached record highs, and people have lost confidence in social order.
It is difficult for both parties to reach a consensus on gun control based on partisan interests in the United States. The long-term and continuous proliferation of guns is caused by political divisions and partisan struggles, at the cost of tens of thousands of Americans becoming the soul of guns every year.
Raceaic chronic diseases often occur
Minorities in the United States are in a difficult situation due to systematic racial discrimination. The case of the sensational white American policeman “kneeling down” an African-American man Freud opened on March 29.
The Boston Globe lamented: “Shawvan will not be the only defendant in court, and it will be the whole United States who is sent to the trial bench.”
Freud’s “I can’t breathe” moan is the last cry of more than one African-American who died of violent police law enforcement, but also the common voice of more minorities who suffered the same doom.
According to federal statistics, young African-American men are 21 times more likely to be shot by the police than young white men. The shooting rate of African-American men between the ages of 15 and 19 is 31.17 per million, while the shooting rate of white men of the same age group is only 1.47 per million.
According to the “Map of Police Violence” website, at least 301 African-Americans in the United States were shot dead by police in 2013, 320 in 2014, 351 in 2015, 309 in 2016, 282 in 2017, 260 in 2018 and 27 in 2019. 8 people, 233 in 2020.
Do U.S. police officers who enforce violent law usually receive fair sanctions from the law? The answer is no. Juries hearing cases of police brutal law enforcement generally have “natural trust” in law enforcement personnel.
“The data suggests jury members prefer to trust the testimony of police and police officers than witness testimony,” said Jenna Bell, a professor at Indiana University Law School.
Africans are not the only victims of racism in the United States, and ethnic minorities such as Latinos and Asians have also suffered racial discrimination for a long time. Especially since the outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic, some American politicians have stigmatized Asians to shirk the responsibility for the ineffective epidemic prevention, resulting in a surge in violent hate crimes against Asian Americans in the United States.
In the past two months, “stop hatred of Asians” has become the slogan of a new round of anti-racial discrimination movement after “Black lives are also lives”, and related demonstrations have emerged all over the United States.
The gap between rich and poor widens again
Today, the gap between rich and poor in American society has accelerated to widen, and the lives of the people at the bottom are unspeakably miserable. Since last year, the outbreak has run out of control has led to a large wave of unemployment, tens of millions of people have lost their health insurance, and one in six Americans and a quarter of American children are at risk of hunger. Vulnerable groups have become the biggest victims of the government’s negative response to the epidemic.
Experts believe that the epidemic has exacerbated the survival crisis of the bottom people in the United States, but the middle class crisis caused by the unequal distribution of wealth in American society has long existed and continues to worsen, causing social and political instability.
Chris Baskirk, editor of the American conservative website “America Great”, said that the uneven distribution of wealth is caused by the stagnation of real wage growth and other structural problems that have lasted for nearly half a century, which is likely to create an unsustainable situation.
The pandemic gets out of control and causes tragedy
The U.S. population is less than 5% of the world’s total population, but so far, it has more than 25% of the global total number of confirmed cases of COVID-19, nearly 20% of deaths, and more than 550,000 Americans have lost their precious lives.
Deborah Birx, then the coordinator of the Trump administration’s White House Coronavirus Response Task Force, said bluntly in a recent CNN documentary that the federal government’s transmission of contradictory messages to the public is the “number one mistake” made in the United States’ response to the epidemic.
In this documentary, Anthony Fauci, a key member of the Trump administration’s White House Coronavirus Response Task Force and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said that the president’s social media calls for the lifting of the epidemic blockade was shocking and “a huge blow” to the fight against the epidemic. .
Randomical bullying destroys the rules
A brazen withdrawal from the World Health Organization, withdrawal from the Paris Agreement, threats to international institutions with bullying, brutally imposing unilateral sanctions, cruel treatment of asylum seekers, continued forced repatriation of migrants during the epidemic, and pardoning war criminals who massacred civilians in other countries…
The United States under the Trump administration owes countless “human rights accounts” to the international community. Over the past four years, the United States has become the biggest “troublemaker” that endangers global security and stability by insisting on its own priority and pursuing isolationism, unilateralism and bullyingism.
On June 19, 2018, the United States, which boasts as a “human rights defender”, suddenly announced its withdrawal from the United Nations Human Rights Council. The day before, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights had just criticized the United States’ forced separation of migrant children from their parents in border areas.
In September 2018 and March 2019, former U.S. National Security Adviser Bolton and then Secretary of State Pompeo respectively threatened that if the International Criminal Court investigates the suspected war crimes committed by U.S. and its allies, the United States will impose a ban on entry, freeze assets, etc. on those “directly responsible for investigation”.
Reprisals, even economic sanctions against the International Criminal Court. James Goldstone, an American legal figure, commented that the remarks of these senior officials show that the U.S. government only takes international law seriously “only if it is in the interests of the United States”.
From July 2017 to July 2020, in violation of international human rights law and international humanitarianism, the U.S. immigration authorities forcibly separated more than 5,400 children from their parents who are refugees or illegal immigrants in the southern border area, resulting in a tragedy of separation of flesh and blood, and many children died in custody.
In 2019, a total of 850,000 immigrants were arrested in the southern border of the United States, most of whom were subjected to rough treatment and arbitrary human rights violations. In 2020, the place of detention for immigrants in the United States became the “hardest hit area” of the spread of the novel coronavirus. The U.S. government also forcibly repatriated a large number of illegal immigrants at the time of the spread of the epidemic, increasing the risk of the epidemic in Central American countries.
In the past three months, more than 100,000 illegal immigrants have flooded into the United States. U.S. law enforcement officers separated more than 5,000 children from their parents and held them in crowded simple rooms, creating multiple “children’s concentration camps”.
The U.S. government refused to acknowledge the immediate immigration crisis and even prevented journalists from reporting on the real situation in “children’s concentration camps”. The U.S. government’s policy of violating the rights of migrants, especially the rights of immigrants, has been strongly criticized and condemned both in the United States and the international community.
During the recently concluded session of the United Nations Human Rights Council, some representatives pointed out that in the current epidemic, the United States pursues “vaccine nationalism”, hoarding a large number of coronavirus vaccines far beyond the needs of its population and refusing to provide vaccines to other countries, including allies; the armed intervention of the United States has caused a large number of other countries.
Civilian casualties; the United States imposes unilateral coercive measures against many countries that seriously violate international law, seriously violate the human rights of other countries, and even lead to humanitarian crises.
