‘Pathetic’ statement from White House in response to lockdown protests in China draws intense heat

Perhaps reflecting the mindset of lockdown-loving, mandate-making Democrats generally, the Biden administration is receiving heavy criticism for its feeble support of the protests in China.

The usually compliant Chinese population has become understandably outraged over the CCP-controlled government’s so-called zero-COVID policy and has taken to the streets all across the vast country to protest the strict limits on movement imposed by the communist regime.

Videos of resilient, pro-freedom demonstrations in what has become known as the “white paper revolution,” including the police response, have been widely shared on social media.

After a tumultuous weekend of dissent, the situation in China calmed down somewhat Monday, but protests are likely to continue, Fox News reported.

The ruling elite under President Xi Jinping has shown no signs of lifting the draconian restrictions.

The social unrest was reportedly prompted by the death of 10 persons in an apartment fire that occurred in Urumqi in the Xinjiang region “that the public believes was caused by excessive lockdown measures that delayed rescue,” AP previously reported.

According to UPI, “Images on social media and international news outlets showed citizens holding up blank sheets of paper, symbolizing the heavy-handed censorship that the government imposes to stifle any dissent. Information about the protests, which some are calling the ‘white paper revolution,’ has managed to spread on the Chinese internet despite Beijing’s tight control.”

A statement released by President Biden’s White House handlers read, in part, that “We’ve long said everyone has the right to peacefully protest, here in the United States and around the world. This includes in the [People’s Republic of China].”

In the same announcement, the administration disavowed a zero-COVID initiative and championed vaccines and booster shots.

During the height of the COVID epidemic in the west, however, governments and corporate media organizations seemed to become enamored with the CCP model in its various authoritarian dimensions.

China’s emergence as an economic powerhouse has also created rampant conflicts of interest throughout the globalist cohort, including by those who claim the mantle of protecting democracy.

The media also initially discredited the theory that COVID leaked from a Wuhan, China, lab out of animus toward former President Trump.

Soon-to-retire Dr. Anthony Fauci is still operating as something of a China apologist insofar as the origin of the coronavirus is concerned.

Allegations have also emerged that Biden allegedly pressured far-left Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to crack down on the freedom convoy.

As alluded to above, hardly anyone is impressed with Biden’s response.

On Sunday, prior to the White House statement, conservative influencer Jack Posobiec weighed in on what might be behind the muted reaction by the Democrat-controlled, federal executive branch as well as other governments.

Here is just a sample of the Twitter responses that rolled in on Monday that sought to educate the “weak” Biden team on what’s really going on:
