House Votes in Support of Hong Kong

In a bipartisan voice vote. It’s nice to see that our politicians have more moral courage than our basketball stars.

The bill was supported by Republicans and Democrats and was passed by a “voice vote” in the House of Representatives, meaning a recorded vote was not needed.

“If America does not speak out for human rights in China because of commercial interest, then we lose all moral authority to speak out for human rights anyplace in the world,” said house speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Ben Ray Lujan, a Democrat, said: “The house just sent a strong message to the people of Hong Kong: we stand with you in the fight for democracy and justice.”

    Liberals in NBA have been shameful.

    Nice to see even American leftists support this resolution even though China is the personification of Marxist ideology.

    As nice as that is it will have about the same effect as the resolution rebuking Trump over his actions to withdraw US troops from northern Syria. But thanks anyway to the liberals and conservatives that voted for it anyway.

    In this I agree with Pat, and actually take it a step further… to point out that it was a voice vote…. and so there is no record of who voted.
