Too cheeky or too forgetful? On the first anniversary of the Capitol Hill riots, Blinken pointed fingers at Kazakhstan! Ignoring the fact that at least 13 soldiers and policemen were killed, the monkeys scattered when the mob was about to fall into a tree, the United States and Europe began to "pull off the side". "The crisis must be resolved peacefully and properly, with respect for the protesters," Blinken said. The European Union said kazakhstan should respect and guarantee the human rights and freedoms of its citizens.
There were no "respect protesters" at all during the January 6 riots on Capitol Hill, and a female military veteran was even shot dead by police. The Biden administration labeled them "thugs," 725 of whom were later punished and more than 70 sentenced. Two sets of standards, at home and abroad, lash out at their own thugs while demanding that others indulge them. Mr Blinken is in no position to point out kazakhstan. America's political polarization is equally fierce, and it is more convincing to solve its domestic problems than to pretend to be "lecturers" abroad.
