Socialist PM Beijing Albo Does Not Call Xi a Dictator By James Reed
After meeting with communist China’s dictator, Xi, Biden said one true thing, that Xi was a dictator. Switch now to the Australian scene and when the prime minister was asked the same question, he was evasive as someone who might be talking to a traffic cop: “We have different political systems. Australia has one political system, China has a different political system from Australia. It’s not a democratic state with elections, with multi-party democracies like Australia is,” he said. When asked to draw the logical conclusion the PM refused and moved on.
This is someone from the Left, the Left being committed to China worship, who is bowing to Xi and is not even willing to call a spade a dictator. Yet another good reason for a leadership challenge against him; it would not change much except the new faces would be different for a while in the dark game of musical chairs of politics.
“Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has refused to call Chinese President Xi Jinping a dictator after U.S. President Joe Biden’s used the description of his Asian counterpart.
As Breitbart News reported, Biden said on Wednesday he still regards the Chinese leader Xi as a “dictator,” prompting a testy response from Beijing which denounced Biden’s remarks as an “irresponsible political maneuver” but did not explain why Xi should be considered otherwise.
Left-wing leader Albanese dodged questions on whether he considered Xi Jinping a dictator on the sidelines of the APEC Summit on Thursday.
The prime minister refused to respond to reporters when he fielded questions after speaking from the summit in San Francisco in keeping with his recent efforts to appease Beijing.
“Just on President Biden’s remarks yesterday about Xi Jinping being a dictator, is he wrong? Would you agree with him? Is Xi Jinping a dictator?” one reporter asked, Sky News Australia reports.
Albanese responded, emphasising Australia and China’s political systems were “different.”
“We have different political systems. Australia has one political system, China has a different political system from Australia. It’s not a democratic state with elections, with multi-party democracies like Australia is,” he said.
Sky News sets out the reporter tried to pose the question again, asking “does that make him a dictator though?” before Albanese snarled, “Well I just answered your question.”
Further questions followed from other reporters who speculated whether Biden’s “dictator” remarks had damaged progress made between Australia, the U.S. and China in the hotly contested Asia/Pacific region.
Albanese’s decision to sidestep questions over how he would describe XI’s leadership comes after his recent visit to Beijing and his scarcely disguised delight at the prospect of being seen alongside the dictator, as Breitbart News reported.”
