Dear Hillary Clinton: Here’s 7,500 Words on U.S. Human Rights Abuses. Love, China

theatlantic:

The Chinese government is not fond of criticism. Sometimes they lock the critics up (see: Ai Weiwei). They can’t do that with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, though. Thus, apparently in response to a Clinton’s speech and the U.S. State Department’s 2011 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices, the Chinese government has released its own report: a catalog of the human rights abuses of the United States, accusing the U.S. of hypocrisy.

It’s a fascinating document, one touching on cases both famous and obscure. Those tuned in to American public discourse will recognize a lot of media topics in there: the Giffords shooting, gun rights, TSA full-body scanners, campaign finance, WikiLeaks, unemployment, the Wal-Mart gender equity suit, and—yes, believe it or not—sexting; the Chinese government lists sexting as an example of the U.S.’s inability to look after the rights of its children.
