I’m not mad that some venture capital mogul (whom I’d never heard of before) said this week on a podcast (which I’d also never heard of before) that “nobody cares about what’s happening to the Uyghurs.”

I am, however, mildly (but not surprisingly) annoyed that this blundering billionaire backed down so quickly in the face of exactly the kind of virtue-signaling bloviators whom he so rightfully criticized in the first place.

Chamath Palihapitiya, who is apparently a former AOL and Facebook executive and founder of a Palo Alto investment firm called Social Capital, outraged the perpetually outraged mob by dismissing his co-host Jason Calacanis’ praise for the Biden administration’s “very strong” support of Muslim Uyghurs in China.

Palihapitiya retorted that “Nobody cares about what’s happening to the Uyghurs, OK? You bring it up because you really care, and I think it’s nice that you care, the rest of us don’t care. I’m just telling you … a very hard, ugly truth. Of all the things I care about, yes, it is below my line.” Palihapitiya then listed his own priority list of Official Things One Should Care More About, including “climate change” and America’s “health care infrastructure.”

Social media scolds and busybodies went ape-shizzle over Palihapitiya’s comments. The Golden Warriors basketball team, of which Palihapitiya is a 2% owner, disavowed him. One woke NBA player blamed him for being a genocide facilitator. GOP Sen. Tom Cotton demanded that the Warriors “force” Palihapitiya to “sell his interest” in the team. Radio host Hugh Hewitt compared Palihapitiya to someone engaged in “Holocaust denial.”

Take a deep breath, all you hyperventilating hyenas. Palihapitiya never “denied” anything. He simply said that at this time and place in history he couldn’t get himself to care as much about the plight of the Uygurs (Uighurs, Uyghurs, whatever) as other things and other people. He also said something I’ve long emphasized as a matter of basic America First principles:

“Not until we can take care of ourselves will I prioritize them over us.”

I also agree wholeheartedly with this: “So until we actually clean up our own house, the idea that we step outside our borders, with us morally virtue-signaling about someone else’s human rights record, is deplorable.”

Our own country is an anarcho-tyrannical basket case. Major metropolitan police departments are run by eunuchs. District attorneys’ offices are held hostage by George Soros-subsidized criminal-coddlers. White people are deplatformed and drummed off university campuses for defending white people smeared by Black Lives Matter. Government agencies (in cahoots with left-wing character assassination operations) are blacklisting young nationalists and their supporters (white and nonwhite); preventing them from boarding planes, banking, renting Airbnbs, livestreaming, sharing music playlists and even ordering food online.

Parents have been dragged off planes and out of school board meetings for defending their children’s right to breathe.

Hundreds of thousands of workers have lost their jobs for refusing to submit to experimental COVID-19 jabs and junk-science testing.

Trump supporters have rotted away in solitary confinement over their attendance at the Jan. 6 election integrity rally in the Capitol.

This week:

— A 24-year-old UCLA grad student was stabbed to death by a black assailant in broad daylight at a high-end furniture store.

— A 40-year-old Asian woman was pushed off a subway platform to her death by a revolving-door black serial criminal in New York City, where skyrocketing black-on-white and black-on-Asian violence is covered up by bleeding-heart corruptocrats and their corporate media propagandists.

— A 70-year-old nurse was brutally murdered by a homeless sociopath in LA on her way to work.

ORDER IT NOW

No, I’m not apologetic now and never have been in the least for putting the health, safety and welfare of Americans in America over the conditions of others outside our borders. Neither should Palihapitiya, but he has already folded like a set of accordian blinds.

“In re-listening to this week’s podcast, I recognize that I come across as lacking empathy. I acknowledge that entirely. As a refugee, my family fled a country with its own set of human rights issues so this is something that is very much a part of my lived experience. To be clear, my belief is that human rights matter, whether in China, the United States, or elsewhere. Full stop.”

Oh, stop quivering like a Jell-O pudding cup. Not everything and everyone can matter equally in a world of limited resources and energy. Sovereignty matters. Full stop.

You’re a billionaire with nothing to lose, Mr. Moneybags. If you’re going to be a truth-telling, politically incorrect maverick who goes “All In” (the name of Palihapitiya’s podcast show), don’t end up groveling pitifully on your knees, for heaven’s sake.

Take it from the little brown woman with a big mouth who has gone all in for three decades in the public square: Man up, own your words and thoughts, and never back down when the bellowers bellow for your head.

  1. Another Subcon nobody, if he’d stayed in India would be cleaning latrines in Udder Pradesh. Having been brought to America, he got taken under the wing of some powerful Jews and has been made fabulously rich beyond his wildest dreams, for the sole purpose of making another fifth column of Indians, with their new wealth and power, will work against white interests and prop up the democratic party.

    • Agree: Angharad
  2. Another breathless column from Ms Malkin that misses the actual point. An out of touch Indian billionaire made an insensitive comment about Chinese human rights violations and genocide. His billions could not shelter him. Instead, he was criticized and forced to account for his utter lack of morality. The billionaire then reconsidered and backed down. Call that a win for morality.

    Meanwhile Ms Malkin condemns the US for taking strong public health measures to control COVID. To be fair, anyone who opposes vaccine and mask mandates is probably one of those “free market” types who believes the US is better off if COVID culls the herd of the elderly, fat, diabetic, and others with compromised immunity. NY, after all, SAVED Medicaid money by killing off thousands of elderly in COVID infected nursing homes.

    Of course Ms Malking talks about crime and blames prosecutors and police for not being mean enough. The actual blame is the nation’s extreme wealth disparity. Medicare for all, universal basic income, a very steep wealth tax, and an end to the war on drugs would do more to stop crime than would a prosecutor who sought a 25 year prison sentence instead of an 18 year prison sentence for some criminal.

    The subway platform killing is the most telling. The blame in that case is on the other New Yorkers on the platform who failed to step up and stop the crime. NY is famous for such indifference–recall the Kitty Genovese killing many years ago. To obtain justice for the subway killing they should publish the name and photograph of every other person on that subway platform who did nothing.

    The billionaire’s real problem is that he does not want sanctions on China for China’s bad conduct to get in his way when he wants to make money. He and Ms Malkin suffer from the same debilitating illness. They don’t want to let concern for others get in the way of their own personal pleasure.

    Ms Malkin does not like to wear a mask so she lets her own personal comfort come before the health of her neighbors.

    I think their willingness to see belief in Islam as a mental disorder that can be cured is the sole redeeming feature of Chinese leadership... having said that, I suspect your saying that "The billionaire’s real problem is that he does not want sanctions on China for China’s bad conduct to get in his way when he wants to make money" is spot-on.

  4. I was thinking similar thoughts while watching Tucker Carlson using this for an outrage porn segment on his show. Yes, the “I don’t care” thing is badly stated, and seeing it come from the arrogant, entitled face of yet another Ah Pu is highly irritating. What he might have said instead is, “The US is an anarchotyranny, quickly descending into third-world status, lacking any semblance of control over its nominal southern border, and we have neither the legitimate authority nor the capacity needed to worry about internal Chinese affairs. When your own house is engulfed in flames is not the time to be calling in complaints about the failure of the guy across the street to mow his grass often enough.”

    Operationally the same thing, but so much easier to hear.

    When did the US become the world defender of Islam? Now all of a sudden Americans are supposed to care about a group that heretofore they didn’t even know existed. Fact is nobody in the US really knows what goes on in Xinjiang . It’s not exactly a tourist destination. The American public can be told anything about it and there’s no way to double check it. Everybody is just getting hyped by another propaganda campaign. It’s a demonization campaign aimed at China. Whether one likes or dislikes China it should at least be based on factual information rather than on these two-minutes of hate handed down to us.

  7. The Uyghurs are fractionally more important to me than Chamath Palihapitiya, because I’d heard of them and didn’t care about them first.

    I hereby apologize to Chamath Palihapitiya for any suffering that this may have caused him.

    I also apologize in advance for all the people who have yet to come to my attention enough to not care about them.

    This apology is not approved by any regulatory agency and is not meant to diagnose, prevent, treat or cure any offense. Not responsible for broken windshields. Apology not valid in Tennessee.

    The U.S. is brazen in its work to hurt and destabilize China. A quarter century ago NATO targeted their embassy in Belgrade and killed Chinese diplomats and laughed about it. China did nothing. The U.S. foments dissent and instability in Hong Kong and Xinjiang and orchestrates 24/7 anti-China propaganda in Western media and China is flat footed.

    Until China starts acting like Linh Dinh on a bender waving around hypersonic nuke missiles, they’ll be pushed around.

  11. MM is right.
    The key point here is that it is not his responsibility to care about the Uyghurs. He is not in a leadership position which has a requirement to take a position on them, so he has a personal right, as we all do, to feel any way he likes about them. He expressed that personal view honestly and without any disrespect, so there is no need to apologize for doing so.

  14. I hope you won’t be displeased with the word “rant”, Mrs. Malkin, when I say this was a most excellent epic rant! That’s “rant” in a good way.

    I can’t quibble with a thing you wrote, and your major point must be understood by anyone in office, that is the few who happen to still be on the side of America: We are far on the road to ruin here.

    Meanwhile, 90 year olds and other non-jews are sent to prison for years for questioning “the Holocaust.” FACTS are not permitted in one’s defense (forensic evidence) since they cause “more pain” and “it happened because it happened so we don’t need to permit people to ask how it happened as described or why the claims have shifted, etc, etc. because IT HAPPENED!!!”

    I grew up listening to (((Tom Leher’s))) “hilarious” “Vatican Rag”. Good thing he didn’t joke about jews or he’d have ended up in prison like Alison Chabloz!! –

  19. Yeah but if you mess with the Uyghurs then you mess with Tucker Carlson.

    “Not until we can take care of ourselves will I prioritize them over us.”

    But I doubt Palihapitiya means to put Americans and America first. He probably means that Uyghurs will matter once we eradicate white supremacy and punish white people who don’t support the Jew controlled Democrat party.

  20. I like Mrs. Malkin, at least she has never sat her butt on both sides of the aisle as far as her politically well written articles are concerned. That is real integrity. She actually puts herself out there to be judged.by rational people.

  24. I don’t care that some billionaire I’d never heard of said that people don’t care about internment camps in China. It’s already been 75 years of not forgetting.

    We now have satellite surveillance capabilities, that I was assured decades ago, can read the warning on your cigarette pack from space. I would surmise that means we could identify every vehicle, every guard stationed at the camp, and give us plenty of status reports, perhaps hourly, of what is going on there. The fact that none of this is being reported means something and it is NOT good.

    Perhaps he spoke the truth?

Chamath Palihapitiya is one of the founders of the lobbying group FWD.us, which advocates, among other things, “a path to citizenship for current and prospective immigrants to the United States, including those who are present in the United States illegally.” Full disclosure: Zuckerberg is another founder.

    As far as displays of courage go, it would have been more impressive if Palihapitiya had said, “Nobody cares about what’s happening to the Jews.”

    Perhaps Malkin herself could try that one out. Oh, I forgot her (((husband))) … and that she’s a self-confessed proud supporter of Israel. Perhaps it’s time for her to revisit Catholicism before Vatican II to understand who her enemy really is. You know, the ones who killed Jesus.

    Malkin’s readers are being played.

  27. Of course nobody cares about the Uyghurs. Do even the Uyghurs care about the Uyghurs? It’s debatable. If they policed themselves they wouldn’t have pissed off the Han so much. Like, have you tried not being a horrible public nuisance? It’s pretty neat! Nobody hates you!

FACTS are not permitted in one's defense (forensic evidence) since they cause "more pain" and "it happened because it happened so we don't need to permit people to ask how it happened as described or why the claims have shifted, etc, etc. because IT HAPPENED!!!"

    I grew up listening to (((Tom Leher's))) "hilarious" "Vatican Rag". Good thing he didn't joke about jews or he'd have ended up in prison like Alison Chabloz!! - https://www.bitchute.com/video/pbE7ltLA3wqv/

    Poor old Graham Hart really got in trouble for putting clips of jewish life inside "death camps" (musical performances, plays, factory work, etc) to music - https://www.bitchute.com/video/KROn28vWCdRP/

    Otto Frank was a dirty bird. Did any of you read the parts where “Ann” (supposedly 13 or 14) goes on describing her breasts and wonders about some other woman’s breasts…very descriptively. I read that in the 10th grade and was immediately became suspicious. If I recall, my BS detector went off.
    Years later, I find out, largely penned in ballpoint.
    That dirty old man.

    Another breathless column from Ms Malkin that misses the actual point. An out of touch Indian billionaire made an insensitive comment about Chinese human rights violations and genocide. His billions could not shelter him. Instead, he was criticized and forced to account for his utter lack of morality. The billionaire then reconsidered and backed down. Call that a win for morality.

    Meanwhile Ms Malkin condemns the US for taking strong public health measures to control COVID. To be fair, anyone who opposes vaccine and mask mandates is probably one of those "free market" types who believes the US is better off if COVID culls the herd of the elderly, fat, diabetic, and others with compromised immunity. NY, after all, SAVED Medicaid money by killing off thousands of elderly in COVID infected nursing homes.

    Of course Ms Malking talks about crime and blames prosecutors and police for not being mean enough. The actual blame is the nation's extreme wealth disparity. Medicare for all, universal basic income, a very steep wealth tax, and an end to the war on drugs would do more to stop crime than would a prosecutor who sought a 25 year prison sentence instead of an 18 year prison sentence for some criminal.

    The subway platform killing is the most telling. The blame in that case is on the other New Yorkers on the platform who failed to step up and stop the crime. NY is famous for such indifference--recall the Kitty Genovese killing many years ago. To obtain justice for the subway killing they should publish the name and photograph of every other person on that subway platform who did nothing.

    The billionaire's real problem is that he does not want sanctions on China for China's bad conduct to get in his way when he wants to make money. He and Ms Malkin suffer from the same debilitating illness. They don't want to let concern for others get in the way of their own personal pleasure.

    Ms Malkin does not like to wear a mask so she lets her own personal comfort come before the health of her neighbors.

    I think their willingness to see belief in Islam as a mental disorder that can be cured is the sole redeeming feature of Chinese leadership… having said that, I suspect your saying that “The billionaire’s real problem is that he does not want sanctions on China for China’s bad conduct to get in his way when he wants to make money” is spot-on.

    China's first response to Islam is that it is a religion to start with.....
    China's Communist anti-religion stance is why the Democrats (American Communists)
    support the CCP....
  31. “…nobody cares about what’s happening to the Uyghurs.”

    Those (literally) cotton-pickin’ Uyghurs.

    This forces one to consider which is the more sinister religion, Islam or Maoism. Otherwise there is not much we can do about it, except to impose sanctions. Which can act like tariffs.

    the Uygurs (Uighurs, Uyghurs, whatever)

    Uyghurs uobble, but they don’t fall down. (Is Mrs. M old enough to get that one?)

  32. As usual, Ms. Malkin is right on target.

    I lose sleep over the middle east because my neighbors are the ones doing it. My neighbors, rich jews, will do the same to America if they continue to gain power and submission from cucks and buttgoys.

    Buttgoys. I’m stealing that one.
