One of the oddities in America today is the left’s obsession with Russian influence in America even though Russia hasn’t had an empire (the Soviet Union) for decades. But the left gives a complete pass to one of the few openly communist countries in the world today, China.
Sure, there are lots of fascinating things about Chinese culture, but let’s not pretend that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is representative of the Chinese people or Chinese culture. It’s not. It’s a communist government which means that it’s about their leaders having power, maintaining power, and growing their power. Just like any other totalitarian government.
But the left just doesn’t get that, and we’re getting indications that the Biden administration may very well be in the back pocket of the CCP. For anyone who know about the CCP’s history, that should be disturbing.
But a recent statement by the head of the CCP should make all Americans pay attention because it’s a veiled warning of what is to come if they get their way. Nicole Hao writes,
In his speech to party leaders from over 100 developing countries on July 6, Chinese leader Xi Jinping vowed that his regime would “manage and shape mankind’s common future,” and people in the world should share the same fate as Chinese citizens.
“The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) insists on making the Chinese people and the people of all countries to have the same destiny,” Xi said. “[The CCP] is progressing the development and prosperity of all countries [in the world].”
In fact, the CCP regime is a dictatorship, so sharing the same fate as Chinese people would be a disaster for the free world.
China was ranked 129 in its freedom index 2020 by Washington-based CATO institute. Chinese people don’t have free speech, can’t freely access the Internet, aren’t allowed free belief, are monitored by the surveillance system, and controlled by the social credit system.
The CCP influencing (read: controlling) the fate of the entire world would be a disaster in multiple ways including economically, in terms of freedom, and in terms of health (forcible harvesting of organs isn’t exactly healthy for the people who “donate” those organs).
Every patriot in America, every American, should pay attention to Xi Jinping’s statement. It’s as plain as Hitler’s statements in Mein Kampf that government leaders ignored, then, too. And we know how absolutely horrible that turned out.
