Leftists have been trying to turn every part of life into a political battle.
They tried to turn Colin Kaepernick into a martyr after he started the anti-American anthem protests in the NFL.
But now Kaepernick and other “woke” celebrities are silent on the horrific thing China is doing.
Virtue-signaling leftists were quick to rally around athletes who knelt for the national anthem or refused to visit the White House because Donald Trump was president.
Athletes like Kaepernick and LeBron James, and coaches like Gregg Popovich and Steve Kerr have spouted their leftist politics in exchange for pats on the back.
But all of a sudden, they went silent on the topic of China.
Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey tweeted support for pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong, and was viciously rebuked.
The NBA relies on the vast Chinese market to sell its game, so suddenly the “woke” scolds went quiet.
NBA stars like James Harden bent the knee to the Chinese government, and Kerr punted on the issue of human rights abuses in China.
Instead, he pivoted and attacked the United States.
But a new report from a think tank in Australia shows that many companies, including Nike and Apple, have benefited from virtual slave labor.
The Uyghurs, a Muslim minority ethnic group in China, have been sent to reeducation camps straight out of the communist playbook.
The conditions they’ve had to endure are horrific, and according to the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, the Chinese government has been sending the Uyghurs to factories to work under slave-like conditions.
The ASPI study revealed, “Under conditions that strongly suggest forced labour, Uyghurs are working in factories that are in the supply chains of at least 83 well-known global brands in the technology, clothing and automotive sectors, including Apple, BMW, Gap, Huawei, Nike, Samsung, Sony and Volkswagen.”
The social justice brigade is eerily silent on all matters concerning China’s communist government and its countless human rights violations.
They’ve proven that it doesn’t take any courage to criticize the freest country that’s ever existed.
You might even get showered with praise, awards, book deals, and corporate sponsorships.
It’s harder to stand up when there’s actually something to lose.
The Left’s silence on China is deafening, and it shows that their disdain for America runs deeper than anything else.
In fact, many of them would prefer to see Trump lose the current trade war with China.
Will any “woke” celebrities speak the truth about China?
