Hillary Clinton Railroads Amnesty International! Drives The Obama Bus Right Over Human Rights!

It's a bad day when a leftist President pisses off a leftist group! Who knew?

The most Liberal President Senator angers one of the most Liberal world orgainizations!

Amnesty International is "shocked"!

Well, we're not! Duh! This is the change you voted for you idiot radical moonbats! What did you think you were getting!

From AFP:

WASHINGTON (AFP) – Amnesty International and a pro-Tibet group voiced shock Friday after US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton vowed not to let human rights concerns hinder cooperation with China.

Paying her first visit to Asia as the top US diplomat, Clinton said the United States would continue to press China on long-standing US concerns over human rights such as its rule over Tibet.

"But our pressing on those issues can't interfere on the global economic crisis, the global climate change crisis and the security crisis," Clinton told reporters in Seoul just before leaving for Beijing.

T. Kumar of Amnesty International USA said the global rights lobby was "shocked and extremely disappointed" by Clinton's remarks.

"The United States is one of the only countries that can meaningfully stand up to China on human rights issues," he said.

"But by commenting that human rights will not interfere with other priorities, Secretary Clinton damages future US initiatives to protect those rights in China," he said.

Forgive me if I laugh uncontrollably for a few minutes, but... I gotta go; this is just too much.

More ironic hilarity on this at Jammie Wearing Fool.
