Default Georgia and China

I am very far from being the first person to notice this--in fact, some commentators have made a point, recently, to note this--but it almost seems as if some people consider the state of Georgia (what with its recent election law) to be far more egregious than communist China.

After all, several companies are now boycotting Georgia over the new law; yet they are still doing business with a country that persecutes its minority Uighurs, and enforces slave labor upon its other citizens.

Perhaps it is because these people are afraid of what communist China might do in retaliation--in a way that they are not afraid of the state of Georgia.

Ya' think?

did you worry about china when republicans boycotted Kaepernick and TRIED to boycott the NFL?
Not only iPhone, iPod, and Mac's , we first need to convince these western multinational corporations to walk away from blood money.

What in the world do Colin Kaepernick and the NFL have to do with the double standard concerning China and the state of Georgia?

Is this just run-of-the-mill deflection?

Next to the race card, deflection is a liberal's defense.
