Yesterday, billionaire Social Capital CEO and part-owner of the Golden State Warriors Chamath Palihapitiya became a household name of sorts when a clip of him callously and cruelly dismissing the Uyghur genocide made the rounds.
Here it is again:
Owner of the @warriors🏀 says he doesn’t care about the Uyghurs.
The conversation goes downhill from there.@chamath…
– questions whether a genocide is actually happening
– says the CCP isn’t a dictatorship
– says the US is no better than the CCP pic.twitter.com/qAwi7hUPvo

Chamath has the distinction of being one of only a handful of public figures who has managed to unite and piss off both Right and Left. People on both sides are disgusted by his remarks.
GOP Sen. Mitt Romney has also elicited some very strong reactions from both the Right and the Left, and usually those reactions are opposite in nature. But this time, both sides of the political aisle should find themselves agreeing with what Romney has to say:
Arrogant dismissal of China’s genocide of the Uyghurs and other minorities by the billionaire venture capitalist who founded the ironically named “Social Capital” fund is repulsive, immoral, and disgusting.

Of course, some people out there still can’t reconcile Mitt Romney’s belief in capitalism and defense of the filibuster with his support for human rights. Because those people are idiots:

Fix your moral compass. Vote for the Voting Rights bill and stop blindly supporting the crazy wing of your party. Lastly, this includes what Republican lead state legislators and governors are doing to voting districts, accessibility and election boards and rules. https://t.co/O1BLhXjUHB

Mitt Romney voting for autocracy over democracy is repulsive, immoral, unpatriotic and disgusting. https://t.co/Nu4eXagbrH

Kind of like The Republican Party. Disgusting, No Morals, Accepts Lying, Killers, Pedophiles, Cheaters, and Accepts Violence against its own People. This is no longer a Party, but a full blown Cult. It is sickening to know you are a Mormon!! Is there an ounce of good left in you? https://t.co/z5yS8Js1G1
