Chinese citizens believe their country is “on the right path.” This statement comes from A representative of the Chinese Communist Party in the wake of severe winter storms that devastated Texas and other states.
Hua Chunying, a foreign ministry spokesperson, offered her observation during a call with media journalists discussing human rights abuse in the western Xinjiang region.
In response, Reuters reports that Hua repeated China’s denials of abuse of Muslims in the region and said in defense of communism that Australia, Canada, and the United States had histories of genocide.
She compared many Texans’ vulnerability with the Chinese’s joyful experience during the recently-completed Lunar New Year holiday.
“Not to be wanting of food or clothing, not to be hungry or cold, this is the fundamental human right that is the most real,” she said, before directly pointing at America and adding, “In the meantime in Texas … millions of people found themselves caught in the terrible situation of not having electricity and heating at home, a few tens of people even lost their lives because of this.”
According to Reuters, Hua enjoyed watching such suffering from afar “gave the Chinese people a deeper appreciation for what is the real human right, and made us believe more strongly that China is on the right path. We are fully confident about our future.”
Just 24 hours before Hua claimed, Chinese ideological beliefs took comfort from American’s struggles. The official Global Times news outlet said China, with the same size power grid, power outages such as those afflicting the U.S. would never be seen.
Breitbart News reports, Hu Xijin, editor-in-chief of the Times, took the opportunity to dance on the graves of Americans killed by China’s coronavirus while stating his government is better at investing in infrastructure, organizing disaster relief, and learning from its mistakes.
