Secretary Pompeos Speech on Human Rights in Philadelphia

- Wei Jingsheng



The U.S. State Department has established a new subordinate organization called the Commission on Unalienable Rights. On its first anniversary, a human rights seminar was held at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo gave a keynote speech at the seminar, expounding the human rights policy of the United States, and emphasizing the determination of the US government to uphold human rights and promote democracy.


This constitution center was built to commemorate the Continental Congress that formulated the U.S. Constitution, right at the place where the Continental Congress was held. This also shows that the US government is pushing to strengthen the human rights principles in the spirit of the US Constitution.


The establishment of this organization is very important. There have been many comments, including from scholars and politicians from the left who believe that the UN Human Rights Council no longer focuses on human rights, but has become a platform for the Chinese Communist regime and a group of autocratic countries to counter human rights. Could it be said that autocracy is so popular? No. In addition to the dictators who huddling together for warmth, there are also the public and private bidding by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) at work.


Let me tell you a little story. At the Human Rights Commission in Geneva many years ago, our overseas democracy movement canvassed votes for a motion condemning the CCP's violation of human rights. A representative from Africa was invited to my coffee table. As soon as he came, he said: The money from your embassy arrived yesterday. I know how to vote. Do you have anything else needing to be taken care of?


I was stunned first, and soon realized that he was talking about the Chinese government. I asked him: Is it into your personal account or your countrys? He said that that is my personal money, I don't know about my country. I asked again: Are you voting according to the instruction from your country? He smiled and said: My country does not care about these things. I decide for myself.


Being bought like this is common in the United Nations, and everyone is not surprised anymore. However, another French-speaking African representative was persuaded by us and cast a vote condemning the CCP. This was not in line with everyone's prediction, so that the teller who was surprised had to ask again: What is you vote? He firmly stated that he voted to condemn the CCP, and the audience looked back in surprise: Who is this guy? So bold? They whispered to each other and told each other which country that representative represented.


When the United States first designed the rules of the United Nations, it was based on the principle of fairness. Every country has an equal vote. But this assumption is wrong. Many countries are simply irresponsible. Coupled with the CCPs open and private buying, the so-called equal vote has become an unreasonable design. This huge loophole is the guarantee for the success of the CCPs corruption policy. The United Nations Human Rights Council has become the Anti-Human Rights and Tyranny Protection Council.


For this reason, our overseas democracy movement and the US government have successively withdrawn from activities in the UN Human Rights Council. We stopped wasting our time with the Communist regime and its lackeys. However, more than ten years ago, I planned to gather famous people of justice from various countries to form such an authoritative human rights assessment organization. It was only because of the selfish calculations of the Taiwanese government that it failed, like Lee Teng-hui's government supporting the Communist China to get the most-favored-nation status and to join the World Trade Organization.


Now the establishment of this Commission on Unalienable Rights under the auspices of Secretary Pompeo is one of the steps to gradually replace the UN Human Rights Council. The Commission will unite with just people, include countries and organizations that truly care about the cause of human rights and democracy, to appeal for the oppressed people and make authoritative judgments for the protection of human rights.


The fifty cents Internet police and the informants pretending to be democracy activists of the Chinese Communist regime often clamor that the overseas democracy movement does not do real things, but only talks. What are real things? These are real things, including things that have not been successful and are in operation. This is why Xi Jinping has recently intensified the suppression of the pro-democracy movement at home and abroad, including the use of fifty cents Internet police and informants pretending to be democracy activists spreading rumors and smear campaigns. This is the new normal that requires us to be vigilant.


Secretary Pompeos speech can be found on the Internet, including Twitter, and everyone can watch it and be inspired again.
