President Joe Biden angered Republicans on Tuesday when, speaking before the U.N. General Assembly, he appeared to call for applying limp-wristed diplomacy and appeasement in dealing with America and its allies’ enemies, including China.

While he didn’t specify China by name or use the word “appeasement,” choosing instead to deliver his otherwise clear message with broad platitudes about his brand of so-called diplomacy, the meaning of his words seemed obvious to many.

“We’ll stand up for our allies and our friends and oppose attempts by stronger countries to dominate weaker ones, whether through changes to territory by force, economic coercion, or technical exploitation or disinformation,” he said at one point.

“But we’re not seeking — say it again — we are not seeking a new cold war or a world divided into rigid blocks. The United States is ready to work with any nation that steps up and pursues peaceful resolution to share challenges, even if we have intense disagreements,” he added.

The president’s remarks especially angered Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton.

During an appearance late that evening on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle,” the GOP senator accused the president of delivering what he said was a “disgrace” of a speech.

“This speech was a disgrace. … Joe Biden walked into the United Nations and slapped a giant ‘kick me’ sign on Uncle Sam’s back. And in particular, as it relates to China, he bent over backwards to conciliate and appease the Chinese Communist Party,” the senator alleged.

“He said we don’t seek a new ‘cold war.’ Well, China has been waging a ‘cold war’ against America and our workers and our military for decades. So the question is not whether we seek one; the question is whether or not we will fight back in it,” he added.

The proof of the president’s appeasement, Cotton continued, was there to see (or hear, rather) in the president’s own words.

“Joe Biden wouldn’t even say the word China. He’s apparently too scared to even mention China’s name in a speech addressed to the world’s leaders. What kind of signal does that send to them? What kind of signal does it send to the leaders of Beijing. I can tell you what they’re doing right now: They’re laughing at Joe Biden,” the senator explained.

Making matters worse, host Laura Ingraham chimed in, is that veritable Chinese dictator Xi Jinping has learned how to “weaponize” the Biden administration’s “wokeness.”

Despite being one of the worst — if not the worst — human rights abuser on Earth, Xi has adopted left-wing “social justice” buzzwords like “equity” and “inclusiveness” so as to use them against the United States.

The horrific irony was not lost on Cotton.

“You’re talking about a man in a regime that has crushed Hong Kong’s autonomy and freedom, that is sterilizing religious and ethnic minorities in Northwest China or putting them in gulags, [that] has destroyed thousands of Christian churches across China,” he angrily said.

“Yet he presumes to lecture us, and that’s because Joe Biden, his administration basically accepts those terms. Remember when Tony Blinken went up for a summit in Alaska and got lectured to, or Joe Biden’s U.N. ambassador said that white supremacy was woven through the origins of this nation?” he added.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson noted at the time of the Blinken debacle back in March that China clearly has “utter contempt” for the “woke” Biden administration. But the administration appears to be too “woke” to even realize this.

“I can tell you it’s not just Xi Jinping. Every two-bit Chinese diplomat in apparatchik around the world goes into the foreign ministries of countries and tells them that they should not listen to America, they should not lecture China about human rights because America has its own problems with human rights,” Cotton continued.

“And that’s all because of Joe Bden and his senior cabinet members accepting those terms of debate on anti-American grounds,” he concluded.

It would be bad enough if the president was just appeasing China verbally, but judging by the latest reports, he’s appeasing them materially as well.

Axios confirmed Tuesday that federal law enforcement agencies within the Biden administration have been “purchasing surveillance drones from a Chinese company the Pentagon has deemed a potential national security threat.”

This poses a problem, “experts” cited by Axios say, because “the federal government is needlessly exposing itself to snooping by malicious foreign actors.”

Plus, it puts more money into the hands of America’s biggest foe.

Note also that this bombshell comes amid acknowledgment from the mainstream press that the Hunter Biden emails that were reported on by conservative media last fall were, indeed, legitimate.

This is relevant because some of those emails concerned troubling business deals in China that may have potentially involved the “big guy” himself …
