One of the few – actually, very few – good news items to come out of the first days of the Biden-Harris administration is a glimmer of robust bipartisan opposition to the Chinese Communist Party.
Before he left office, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo declared the CCP’s oppression of Uyghur Muslims in western China to be “genocide.” Shortly thereafter, Joe Biden’s nominee as Pompeo’s replacement, Tony Blinkin, and his Treasury Secretary-designate, Janet Yellin, both endorsed that designation in congressional testimony.
Under international law, a finding of genocide obliges us to take action against the perpetrator. An appropriate first step would be to make this monstrous crime against humanity Item One in a public indictment justifying another designation: namely, that the Chinese Communist Party is a transnational criminal organization.
This would both delegitimize the CCP and make those underwriting and otherwise aiding it accomplices.
