On September 30, the Global Times of China introduced the terms as follows that disclose the infamous human rights practices and foreign policy of the U.S. – the biggest violator of human rights in the world – under the title of “Uncle Sam’s dark secrets you may not know.”
– American Holocaust: The massacre against Indians conducted by Western colonizers since the 16th century, which dropped the number of the American Indigenous people down from 10 million to merely 200,000 at the end of the 19th century.
– The Slaughterhouse of Black People: A phrase used by furious South Africans to describe America after the tragic death of an unarmed South African rugby player shot dead by Honolulu police. I CAN’T BREATHE – those were the last few words George Floyd cried. Floyd’s killing is only the tip of the iceberg.
– Human White: The term refers to America’s political and socioeconomic system where white people enjoy structural advantages and rights that other racial and ethnic groups cannot. The New York Times reported that the term “white supremacy” was used fewer than 75 times in 2010, but nearly 700 times in 2020 alone.
– The U.S. Version Unit 731: The U.S. traded with infamous Japanese biological warfare organ Unit 731 for experimentation data on live human bodies after WWII. By obtaining the data and medical papers of Unit 731, the U.S. Army accelerated its development of biological weapons in Fort Detrick, which has long been researching on the virus.
– New Monroe Doctrine: Referring to Washington’s endeavor to maintain hegemonic political, military and economic influence in Latin America, long seen by the U.S. as its political backyard.
– Haiti Syndrome: Referring to the consequences of forceful transplantation of American model of democracy in Haiti. In 1915, the U.S. Marine Corps invaded the Caribbean country, and remained there for almost 20 years. The U.S. controlled Haiti’s security and finances, imposed racial segregation, forced labor, and deposed presidents and legislatures that opposed the U.S. presence. Haiti is now the Western Hemisphere’s poorest country. Many other developing nations are also suffering from Haiti Syndrome.
– Digital Colonialism: The use of digital technology to export America’s ideology and subjugate Third World and impoverished nations to U.S. political, economic and social domination. It also includes America’s crackdown on China’s Apps like TikTok and WeChat to maintain its internet hegemony.
– Coercive Diplomacy: One of the most popular tools for the U.S. to achieve its policy goals by marrying diplomacy to military muscle, to coerce an opponent into stopping or changing an action already taken. The Pentagon characterized the $30.3 billion of expenses for FY2003 of George W. Bush’s administration for “coercive diplomacy” as incurred expenses.
– Whip Diplomacy: Washington has a tendency to wave its whip to punish the countries for impediments to its hegemony, such as imposing harsh sanctions.
– Condor Diplomacy: The name is derived from Operation Condor, infamous missions of the CIA in Latin America since the 1960s. The U.S. intervened all over Latin America during the Cold War. It rigged the local elections, assassinated political figures, and even toppled governments in the name of preventing the spread of Communism or protecting their economic interests.
– New Cold War Diplomacy: The U.S. antagonistic posture and moves toward other countries, notably China: To build small circles, to reject, threaten or intimate others, to willfully impose decoupling and sanctions, or to create isolation and estrangement.
– Lip Service Diplomacy: U.S. foreign policy is hypocritical in various ways, and over-promising and under-delivering is one of them. Promises made, promises broken: from support for global infrastructure to climate actions, from combating COVID-19 to war in Afghanistan.
– Biggest Warmonger: America has been at war 93 percent of the time since 1776. At least 800 U.S. military bases are located in more than 70 countries and regions. Since 2001, the U.S. “war on terror” has killed, injured and displaced millions across 24 countries, while America’s defense spending is nearly 40 percent of the global total.
– World’s Bully: The true nature of the U.S. administrations, no matter who is in the White House.
– Uncle Scam: A new nickname of Uncle Sam because of his nature of lying.
– Eye of Sauron: Washington has been unscrupulously wielding its monopolistic technological might to conduct cyber espionage, surveillance and even attacks on a long list of foreign governments, enterprises and individuals, only to shore up its hegemony in global cyber space. One of its infamous cyber spying programs is Project Sauron.
– Infamous Betrayer: America’s disgraceful role as traitor of France (1798, 2021), Kurds (2019), Afghanistan (2021), and many others. Backers of the so-called independence for Taiwan might be the next victims.
– Strategic Narcissism: Referring to America’s tendency to view the world only in relation to itself. The U.S., on the one hand, boasts itself as the “lighthouse of democracy” or a “shinning city upon a hill”; on the other hand, it is seeking scapegoats and tilting at windmills to cover its own systemic deficiencies and governance weaknesses.
– Plutocracy: The U.S. government is dominated by an elite group of individuals who hold all of the money, and therefore, all of the power. The total cost of the country’s 2020 election reached an unprecedented $14 billion, making it the most expensive election in history. People are reflecting upon the hypocrisy of U.S. democracy. It is now a “hymocracy” rather than a “democracy.”
Liberal Totalitarianism: A phrase first used by the head of Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service, to describe the fact that U.S. liberal democracy is converting to a totalitarian system with the development of a domestic police state.
The World’s No.1 Anti-pandemic Failure: As of September 30, 2021, the U.S. has reported 43.2 million cumulative confirmed cases of COVID-19, and 693,000 deaths. In terms of both numbers, the U.S. ranks first in the world.
Super Coronavirus Spreader: The U.S. was the world’s No.1 pandemic spreader amid the pandemic. The period from November 2020 to January 2021 is the peak of the epidemic in the U.S., with an average of 186,000 newly diagnosed cases per day. During the same period, the average number of U.S. citizens going abroad was 87,000, making it a veritable “proliferator.” The U.S. is also the big Petri dish for COVID-19 variants. A recent study showed evidence of four additional COVID-19 variants in New York City’s wastewater.
No.1 Blame-shifting Country: The U.S. has turned a global public health disaster into a major power tussle by politicizing scientific issues, the origins tracing of the virus, and the effectiveness of the vaccine, shifting the blame to the outside world and misleading the international community.
From these terms released by the Chinese media, international society can vividly understand that the U.S. is undoubtedly the world’s biggest violator of human rights, destroyer of peace and stability, chieftain of aggression and plunder, and the No.1 criminal who should be brought to the international justice.
The U.S. should act with prudence and self-control, bearing in mind that if it continues to cling to high-handedness, arbitrariness and maneuvers to interfere in other countries’ internal affairs obsessed with the ambition for world hegemony, it will only invite more derision and condemnation from the humankind.
