Congressman Chris Smith sued for racism in his global human rights advocacy

January 16, 2009

On December 23, 2008, I filed my First Amended Complaint, in which I edited my claims against CNN, and added parties – Judge Saundra Armstrong  and US Congressman Chris Smith.  This is excerpt of my complaint against Smith:

 

In February 2006, I was very excited to learn that the Congress, the highest law making authority of the US, had launched a campaign to intervene those major US based Internet private companies’ conducts to restrict Chinese people’s rights to freedom of expression on Internet communications in China. Mr. Christopher Smith, Chairman of

 

 

 

In the Complaint I also brought in other issues such as that American government agent colluded with the former Supreme Court of Canada judge, High Commissioner for Human Rights at UN Louis Arbor to cover up for US and Canadian governments, seized all my complaints sent to the UN’s international human rights bodies, in violation of the UN’s human rights complaint rules, and the death threat I received on Yahoo’s message board while posting my story, etc.

 

I claimed in this Complaint:

 

 

 

    “I have this standing to bring this complaint, as the Congress of United States has been known as most adamantly committed to human rights cause of the whole world, takingon the individual human rights abuse complaints from over the wold for hearing and public condemnation. Particularly notable is that numerable individual human rights complainants from China have been invited to speak before the Congress, alleging a wide range of human rights abuses in China. I am a Chinese and my human rights complaintinvolves the same and even more brutal abuses, as compared to those abuses cited for Chinese government in the 2005 Country Human Rights Practice Report (Report) issued by the US Department of State. And most crucially, my human rights complaintis not against China, but your own US government, and the government of your political ally Canada. I trust it is accepted by every person with common sense that you do nothave the right and the standing to demand other nations to do things that you yourself refuse to do. Therefore, I believe that the Congress will treat my complaint not only same as those from China and other nations, but also give it priority for investigative hearing.”However, I never received any response from Smith. Defendant Smith’s silence on my complaint can only mean that my arguments are indisputable – that the human rights abuses committed by US and Canadian governments on me are even more serious compared to those cited for Chinese government in the US 2005 Country Human Rights Practice Report.

And compared to his leading role in vigorously criticizing the Chinese and other governments for the same kind (and less serious than that in US) of human rights abuses as the Chairman of the US Congress human rights caucus, Defendant Smith had no any justifiable reason not to investigate my complaint. Therefore, the silence of Defendant Smith on my complaint can only mean that he condones and endorses the gross human rights abuses committed by his own US government and Canadian government.

Such a discrepancy in Defendant Smith’s human rights practice towards different nations reveals the hypocrisy of the “global human rights cause” that he has been advocating, and the racism nature of this “global human rights cause”. Because if Smith has no interest to support and protect me, this Chinese, for my human rights, what is his purpose to protect and support human rights for those Chinese in China? It can only mean that what he really concerned is not whether the Chinese enjoys human rights or not, but rather to claim the “moral supremacy” of the American and Western nations for purpose of maintaining their racial/political hegemony. And once a Chinese person exercises this same right but against his own and other Western nations’ governments, he supports the prosecution on this Chinese much more brutally than the Chinese government does to its people.

 

For reasons stated above, Defendant Christopher Smith is hereby sued in his official capacity, for a declaratory judgment for violations of 14th Amendment of United States Constitution – equal protection clause, and

 

 

International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, Article 26: “All persons are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to the equal protection of the law. In this respect, the law shall prohibit any discrimination and guarantee to all persons equal and effective protection against discrimination on any ground such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.”

 

 

 

the 109th Congress Subcommittee on Africa, Global Human Rights and International Operations, held an investigative hearing and publicly condemned the conducts of those companies, Yahoo, Google, MSN, etc., who had helped the Chinese government restrict Chinese people’s rights to freedom of expression on Internet. Further, the Congress was in a process to make laws to regulate these companies’ conducts in China to comply with US’s values on human rights, particularly, freedom of expression, and study the possibility of bringing down the “Great Firewall of China” that censors the Chinese Internet.
