Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher on Wednesday compared China to a Nazi regime in the midst of Chinese President Hu Jintao’s state visit to the U.S.
Rohrabacher (Calif.) — who is a fierce critic of China on human rights — said that the U.S. government should be discouraging American businesses from dealing with the Asian nation
“We should be telling our business community, ‘You are dealing with the Nazis here. You are dealing with people who are murdering people for their religious convictions. And we do not look on it as consistent with American tradition that you are going over there and setting up a factory so you can take advantage of slave labor,’” he said on the conservative Dateline Washington radio program.
Rohrabacher’s comments are arguably the fiercest rebuke of China from a member of Congress since Hu arrived in Washington on Tuesday.
