“Democratically Backsliding Country” Exposed to Criticism of the World

Recently, the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance in Sweden designated the U.S. as a “democratically backsliding country” in its report: “The Global State of Democracy 2021”, while pointing out the dismal human rights situation and erosion of democracy in the U.S. society.

The report, once it was published, was given an extensive coverage by the mass media of several countries like Singapore and China. They commented that the U.S. has lost its face beyond recognition as it is trying to convene the “Summit for Democracy” posing as an “exemplary state of democracy”.

In fact, the U.S. does not have a basic qualification even to talk about democracy.

“Color Revolutions” of all hues – the offspring of U.S.-style “democracy” have stirred up social instability across the world and generated the explosion of millions of refugees.

It is none other than the U.S., the author of the heartrending reality of Afghanistan – 470,000 civilian death and totally devastated country – despite its investment of tremendous human and material resources for the last two decades under the pretext of building a “democratic state”.

Now the international society is raising voices of criticism against the U.S. saying that the “democracy”, which the U.S. is scheming to export to several countries such as Syria and Iraq and other regions, is only inviting terrorist acts and the biggest ever refugee crisis, not to mention the fomentation of chaos and disorder.

According to data, 44% of the world people recognize that the U.S. is a threat to democracy while 80% asserting that the U.S.-style of “democracy” is not a good example for other countries.

Even the European countries, which claim to be allies of the U.S., raise voices of criticism against the U.S. saying that “U.S. is a threat to democracy” citing shocking incidents such as tapping of European politicians by U.S. intelligence agencies and civilian massacre in Afghanistan.

The U.S.-style “democracy” is also rebuffed even within the U.S.

The recent opinion poll in the U.S. said that 81% of the respondents answered that the “democracy” of their country is on the brink of collapse and denounced the politicians who are only engrossed in the secret strife with their rivals.

Quite a few countries including China have recently maintained that the U.S. attempt at convening the “Summit for Democracy” itself is quite absurd and the meeting this time is a typical nondemocratic act.

A short while ago, the spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China mentioned that the U.S. is now judging a democratic and a nondemocratic country according to its own standard, and this is a “privatization” of democracy and betrayal of the spirit of democracy.

The above facts show that there is an ever-growing antipathy towards the U.S. which is misusing “democracy” as a tool for interference in the others’ internal affairs.

The international society should see through the reactionary nature of “democracy” much touted by the U.S., and raise the voices of independence against the U.S.
