Anyone who is looking for a good reason to claim diplomatic immunity is sure to find one here. There is a great deal of tension right now with China over Taiwan and Xinjiang. Now, Chinese authorities are doing everything in their power to give our diplomats a kick in the pants, literally. They have been performing anal swab tests on our diplomats. The State Department has issued some complaints (rightfully so) and now the Chinese are trying to backtrack.
VICE has more on this developing story. “The State Department never agreed to this kind of testing and protested directly to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs when we learned that some staff were subject to it,” a State Department spokesperson told VICE World News on Wednesday.
The spokesperson said Beijing had assured Washington that the test was given “in error” and that diplomatic personnel were exempt from the test, which was mandatory for incoming travelers in some parts of China.
By the time CNN got the chance to check-in, you won’t believe what happened next. China is now claiming that it was all a big mistake. You see, there never were any anal swab tests.
“As far as I know, and I have also checked with my colleagues, China has never asked US diplomats in China to take anal swab tests,” ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian told reporters at a daily briefing on Thursday.
The US diplomatic source told CNN that US representatives in China have been “negotiating with the Chinese for a while” to avoid their staff being subjected to such tests,” CNN reports. Zhao Lijian is lying but guess what? We are going to highly doubt that any Americans will put their hands up and volunteer to tell the story about their experience.
It’s not like there are going to be a ton of people who are willing to say “yes, I was given an anal swab test and this is my story about that human rights violation”. These types of tests do not make any sense but the tests aren’t about helping anyone. They are about humiliating Americans and the Chinese know this.
In a messed-up way, this idea is actually pretty clever. No one is going to want to refute the Chinese and there’s a good chance that they are going to keep doing it. While there is no proof that the rear end plays any role in the spread of the virus, that is not going to stop them from continuing this practice.
China simply wants to mess with us and it is clear as day to see. The United States is a joke to them and now that Biden is president? Don’t expect that mentality to change anytime soon. Xi Jinping is probably sharing some hearty laughs right now with his friends. “Those silly Americans, you can tell them anything. Why, we got them to use anal swab tests instead of the throat swabs that they are used to.”
This is what happens when Biden is at the helm. Other countries stop taking us as seriously because they know that there is a huge pushover in the big chair. The Chinese never would have pulled a stunt like this when Trump was in office but that goes without saying. This is why they were celebrating when the news about Biden’s victory came in. They knew that they would never have to respect us again, or at least until the GOP is able to regain power.
At this point, that’s what we are waiting for. Everyone knows what we are in for over the next four years. The Chinese consider us a laughingstock. Biden is never going to stand up for what is right because he is too busy catering to all of the leftists who wanted to put him in power. The Chinese can issue any denial that they want, we already know the truth.
