Plenty of social media users agreed:
To summarize:— Blinken canceled a trip to China after Chinese spying on U.S. bases — China does nothing to thaw relations — Blinken nonetheless goes to China & kowtows, knifing Taiwan in the back — China berates Blinken — U.S. leaves looking weak, having accomplished nothing https://t.co/sPZv7dJ4JT — Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) June 19, 2023
If you need more proof of how ridiculously fragile America is now:China has learned how to perfectly mimic the “Do better!” complaining from the Left and is now using it against the Biden administration. For which Biden and Blinken will be only too happy to bend the knee. — And Don’t Call Me Shirley. (@Meme_Behavior) June 19, 2023
The Biden administration has accomplished this kind of thing all over the world. It’s part of their “War through Incompetence” initiative.— JohnOU81 (@Stopthemadns) June 19, 2023

“Eerily similar to how Hitler treated the Allied ambassadors and even Chamberlain…minus the ‘eerily’ part,” the user wrote. “This is the totalitarian playbook.” The reference, of course, is to the Munich Agreement of 1938, where then-British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain traveled to German dictator Adolph Hitler’s homeland to receive a tongue-lashing and sign a humiliating document he claimed would guarantee “peace for our time.” It didn’t, of course, because appeasing dictatorships guarantees nothing more than further aggression — of the kind China is engaging in now. Dealing with bullies requires the strength and determination to do it — something Biden should remember from his “Corn Pop” days. Unfortunately for the country, the man in the White House has neither. Whether it’s because the president is compromised by his own corruption or whether it’s because he’s inculcated too much of the “blame America first” ethos of his Democratic Party, it’s all too clear that China has taken the upper hand in its relationship with the United States, and the people of its targeted countries — starting with Taiwan — who are going to pay the price. If CNN is seeing weakness, it’s a rock-solid bet that the rest of the world is seeing it, too. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
