Hilton Worldwide. Il Congresso vuole che rinunci al progetto nello Xinjiang.

Il copione è noto, ma toni e tecniche espressive sono mutati drammaticamente dopo le prese di posizione cinesi.

Il Congresso americano vorrebbe che la Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc non investisse in Cina, che l’Amministrazione Harris-Biden considera essere responsabile di non attenersi agli human rights, intendendo con tale termine l’ideologia liberal.

La posizione delle multinazionali è lineare:

«The firm added that it would “comply fully with all local laws, authorities and Hilton brand development standards.”»

Multinazionali rigettano la politica estera della Harris-Biden Administration.

La Cina ha risposto alle continue accuse della Harris-Biden Administration con dure durissime prese di posizione.

Cina. Un j’accuse ferocemente e brutalmente rude, e vero, contro gli Stati Uniti.

Biden attacca nuovamente la Cina e questa replica al vetriolo.

Da quel momento la Harris-Biden Administration si è chiusa in un dignitoso riserbo, ed i media liberal hanno mutato registro. Due soli, tra i tanti possibili commenti.

– “congressmen” ha rimpiazzato il termine politicamente corretto “congresspersons

– L’articolista non da più per scontato che i cinesi siano responsabili di qualcosa, come se fosse stata cosa certa, mentre invece scrive “China’s Xinjiang region, where Washington says minority Muslims have been victims of genocide

La frattura tra la Harris-Biden Administration ed il mondo produttivo è sempre più evidente.

BlackRock. Gli assets hanno passato i 9.5 trilioni di dollari. Da quando è in Cina.

Cina. Il 60% delle imprese europee fugge da casa e sta investendo lì. – Bloomberg.

Cina. 2020. Investimenti esteri +81% YoY. Superano quelli negli Usa.

Mentre l’economia dell’enclave liberal socialista è in recessione e profonda crisi, aggravata adesso anche da una inflazione a crescita tumultuosa, il sistema economico cinese, e quello del sud est asiatico, stanno crescendo a vista d’occhio e nessuna impresa che voglia sopravvivere può ignorare quella realtà.

«comply fully with all local laws»

Tutto il resto è cicaleccio inutile se non dannoso.

U.S. congressmen call on Hilton to cut link to Xinjiang project

A bipartisan U.S. congressional commission has called on Hilton Worldwide not to allow its name to be associated with a hotel project on the site of a mosque bulldozed by authorities in China’s Xinjiang region, where Washington says minority Muslims have been victims of genocide.

In a letter on Thursday to Christopher Nassetta, president and CEO of Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc, Democratic Senator Jeff Merkley and Representative Jim McGovern raised concerns about reports that a Hampton by Hilton hotel was being constructed on the site of the mosque destroyed in 2018 in Xinjiang’s Hotan prefecture.

“The site is emblematic of the Chinese government’s campaign of widespread destruction of Uyghur religious and cultural sites in the XUAR and official efforts to eradicate Uyghurs’ religious and cultural practices,” the letter said, referring to minority Uyghur Muslims and the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.

The letter, a copy of which was made available to Reuters, was co-signed by the senior Congressional-Executive Commission on China Republicans, Senator Marco Rubio and Representative Jim Smith.

Hilton Worldwide did not immediately respond to emailed requests for comment.

The letter said the destruction of Uyghur religious and cultural sites had contributed to the U.S. government’s determination that genocide and crimes against humanity were being perpetrated against Muslims in Xinjiang.

“Hilton should not allow its name to be used to perpetuate and promote the cultural erasure and repression of the millions of Uyghurs living in the XUAR,” it said.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, the largest U.S. Muslim advocacy organization, this week called on Hilton shareholders to seek details on the hotel plan, revealed in June by Britain’s Daily Telegraph.

It quoted Hilton as saying the hotel was a franchise development overseen by a Chinese firm, Huan Peng Hotel Management, which said it had purchased the land as a vacant lot via a public auction. The firm added that it would “comply fully with all local laws, authorities and Hilton brand development standards.”

According to CECC research, authorities in Xinjiang demolished or damaged around 16,000 mosques and more than half of the region’s other religious sites such as shrines and cemeteries in recent years.
