Welcome back house democratic leader Nancy Pelosi is singing the praises of human rights in China.
Saying the arrival of a blind activist in the US is quote a milestone.
Let's bring in our power panel KT McFarland -- -- national security analyst Judith Miller Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter.
Are there and Fox News contributor and -- to -- a columnist for the daily -- and -- Fox News contributor thank you all for joining -- thanks so how far have human rights -- in China it's been 23 years since the massacre at Tiananmen square -- I'll start with -- it's.
Essentially handle this pretty shrewdly because quite three years ago -- where when they gunned down their own people they were a pariah and the world they look like they were brutal.
And they really had it it's have been black mark on their name for the last generation this time around they were gonna get in trouble so what do they do they have -- by dissident.
It rather than keep -- mayor rather have a whole world focus on they've in effect.
-- them and they essentially six and what's he gonna do -- probably continue to talk about how bad things are trying to but it won't have.
The world precedent might have were -- to stay there and certainly if they had -- -- -- -- -- them.
-- were they in effect forced to do this -- what was your only other option eliminates now they couldn't they could kept him in jail and I I group -- this is an example of how far they've come and it's also a lesson about how far they still have to go because you know in a civilized.
He would let someone like this man's -- can express his grievances and the fact that he has to come here to do it in law school.
And that he probably won't be permitted to go back all of that is very sad for China has this.
The young man is a patriot and he should be in China we're very glad to -- here but in terms of how the Chinese handled it.
I agree progress and the measuring stick of how far they need to but but is it.
Really just all she know I mean they're still threats from what we heard being made against his family members who are still there and China and that is to -- him and assisted him in office that's correct there are substantial threats and I've been reading about in the news.
Up here this is about liberty for hand his immediate family there's a piece here and yes it is unfortunate what those who are left behind us from the -- that we're supporting him as well.
But regarding Pelosi is comment that this was -- I think she's really exaggerating the point because there's over a million people.
And China living under this oppression yes race is one individual yes he's here but what about the other people.
Courts have gentility -- abortions don't wanna see you know population and also a long way to come and we've all been sent me.
