America’s rivals are exploiting the unrest following the death of George Floyd to mock the country while it deals with unprecedented social tension.
Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge reported that “Beijing communist party officials are especially taking the US to task over its ‘hypocrisy’ regarding Hong Kong.”
The Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Director General Hua Chunying tweeted “I can’t breathe.”

The U.S. State Department has largely sided with Hong Kong protesters during the last year as activists have stood against Beijing’s growing control over the city.
U.S. officials have criticized Hong Kong police and the mainland government’s harsh response to these protests.
Durden continued noting how Chinese media exploited this unrest to dunk on the United States:
“The Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying further used a recent RT segment to castigate what she called “THUGS & HEROES HYPOCRISY” in all caps, also as a reference to how Washington immediately dubs ‘rioters’ in official enemy countries as “heroes” while condemning any similar protest action in its own midst. “
Iran joined the fray when Foreign Minister Javad Zarif tweeted “Some don’t think #BlackLivesMatter. To those of us who do: it is long overdue for the entire world to wage war against racism. Time for a #WorldAgainstRacism.”
Some don't think #BlackLivesMatter.
To those of us who do: it is long overdue for the entire world to wage war against racism.

A few days before Zarif made his tweets, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei declared on Twitter that “if you’re dark-skinned walking in the US, you can’t be sure you’ll be alive in the next few minutes.”
“A human, for his black skin, has no reassurance to live in society, if indeed, a police officer can beat him to death because of his colored skin,” Khamenei commented.

The country’s paramount leader posted a video depicting the history of slavery and previous race riots in major American cities.
Hong Kong has been a heated topic ever since President Trump decided to scrap all of America’s agreements with Hong Kong after it allegedly rescinded its special status to Beijing.
“China has replaced its promised formula of one country, two systems, with one country, one system,” Trump declared.
Indeed, foreign countries are now coming to notice a lot of the U.S.’s social flaws.
Major powers like China will likely exploit this in the future.
In dealing with an authoritarian country like China the U.S. must be smart. It should continue pursuing fairer trade deals, along with finding ways to decouple from the country.
Furthermore, it should greatly restrict migration from the East Asian country due to its track record of using its citizens to set up shop in the U.S. and engage in all forms of espionage and business theft.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
