The Democrats keep coming up with new and creative ways to appease Communist China.
In late July, the Trump administration issued a warning that America’s biggest geopolitical adversaries, including China, Russia and Iran, are working to influence the outcome of the upcoming presidential election.
But the statement didn’t sit well with some prominent members of the Democratic Party, who indignantly rejected the idea of holding Beijing to the same standards as Moscow.
"The statement gives a false sense of equivalence to the actions of foreign adversaries by listing three countries of unequal intent, motivation and capability together," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a ludicrous statement, demanding that President Trump release more information about the nature of the foreign threat.
It’s strange that Pelosi and Schumer — two of the most vocal Russia collusion alarmists — are so skeptical about Beijing’s ongoing campaign to undermine and destabilize our political institutions. Who would have imagined that the leaders of the Democratic Party — the same party that has spent the last four years accusing the Commander-in-Chief of downplaying foreign election interference operations — would now be claiming that the White House is too concerned with protecting our democracy?
Remarkably, though, the joint statement from Pelosi and Schumer was only the latest pro-China PR stunt from the Democrats. Just days earlier, Pelosi had echoed Beijing’s propaganda operatives by arguing that COVID-19 — a disease that came from Wuhan, China — is a “Trump virus.”
The Democrats have also been highly critical of the President’s decision to withdraw the U.S. from the World Health Organization (WHO), insisting that American taxpayers must continue supporting the institution despite its role in spreading Chinese propaganda. The presumptive Democrat nominee, Joe Biden, has even vowed to immediately rejoin the WHO if he is elected.
“Americans are safer when America is engaged in strengthening global health,” Biden recently tweeted. “On my first day as President, I will rejoin the @WHO and restore our leadership on the world stage.”
Of course, Biden did not mention the fact that the WHO played a large role in helping China cover up its deadly mishandling of the COVID-19 outbreak, including the public health agency’s decision to promote a fake Beijing study that falsely claimed that the virus can’t be spread between humans.
“Preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel #coronavirus (2019-nCoV) identified in #Wuhan, #China,” the organization wrote in January, long after doctors and whistleblowers in the region had raised alarm about the outbreak.
Luckily, Donald Trump doesn’t share the Democratic Party’s dangerous comradery with Communist China. In recent months, he has taken concrete steps to punish the autocratic regime for its mishandling of the virus and has firmly repudiated Beijing’s efforts to shift the blame onto the West.
“I’m not interested right now in talking to China,” he said recently, stating that there will be no bilateral discussions on trade in the near future. Moreover, the administration recently sanctioned Chinese officials over the regime's aggressive stance on Hong Kong and closed China’s consulate in Houston in retaliation to Beijing’s ongoing espionage operations in the U.S., signaling that America’s patience with China’s shenanigans is growing thin.
Unlike the Democrats, President Trump understands that China is a serious geopolitical adversary that can’t be trusted. Appeasement didn’t work in the 1930s, and it won’t work now.
Communists pandering to communists...no surprise.
You said it.
It’s not pandering. It’s obeying their owner.
I will never eat Chinese food again. Dirty, Stinking, Rotten, bastards. Hate Them!
Almost twenty years ago when I was a fresh young idealistic FReeper, I made the transgression of comparing the DNC to the infamous NSDAP of 1930’s Germany. I was summarily shot down for my ridiculous comparison and put in my place. Well, I knew what they were all about, and y’all are just playing catch-up.
Thank goodness the GOP is so stalwart against them
A competent FBI would be investigating the bribing and purchase by the Chinese Communist Party of marxist Democrat politicians and media types. These vile fellow travelers are easy to bribe.
“China for a day”
I find the fact Google, Facebook, Amazon (largest server farms), are adopting W.H.O. propaganda rather alarming.
The USA rejected their insanity. (wonder how many OTHER issues the WHO are wrong about) yet somehow google has a veto? This is criminal.
Chinese Communist Party of the USA...
china hates Trump and is contributing to gropey joe’s campaign so that he will favor china if he’s elected.
And Pelosi doesn’t care about Russia much when the Russians are helping Pelosi and the Dems win in November, and their direct assistance to Antifa.
And the Russia-Trump stuff gives the Russians and Democrats perfect cover for cooperation with each other.
If Biden takes over, Americans will become the greatest source of organ donors and slave supply and we will be economically screwed by China like we were before Trump became POTUS.
What is called “Chinese” food is really Chinese American. different.
The GOP ( Non Trumpian globalist R's ) aren't just bowing, they are kowtowing.
