For decades now, China’s Communist leaders have been working diligently to undermine the United States and supplant our country as the world’s foremost power.
Along the way, the Chinese have been helped by Americans.
American consumers have been buying hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of Chinese products, mostly because they are cheap and easily imported.
Why? Because before President Trump came along, not a single U.S. president or Congress cared to level the trade playing field between our two countries or, at least, cared enough to put forth any effort to even attempt to get Beijing to play by the same rules our companies and manufacturers are forced to play by (hence the massive trade imbalance to China’s favor).
Meanwhile, successive American politicians — most of them Democrats — have been bought off by Chinese money and influence-peddling, beginning during the Clinton administration and continuing to the present day. In fact, it was revealed earlier this year that Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) had a Chinese spy on her staff for almost two decades before the FBI finally identified him and informed her (but for some reason he was never charged).
Even former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, has been implicated in a scandal involving a Chinese government-connected bank:
The latest incident regarding China actually involves a professional sports league: the National Basketball Association (NBA). And American values. And the Constitution.
Earlier this week the owner of the NBA’s Houston Rockets, Daryl Morley, tweeted what was seemingly innocuous support for democracy protesters in Hong Kong. China, of course, was outraged by that tweet because China is run by Communist dirtbags who threaten, beat, imprison, and kill their own citizens to ‘keep them in line.’
Worse, the NBA initially sided with the Chinese, and so did far too many NBA players who expressed ‘outrage’ at Morley. Eventually, the league sorta, kinda backed free speech and backed off criticizing Morley.
But again, way too many American basketball fans and players took China’s side — they took the side of Communist dictators who kill and imprison their own people. But that’s not all.
The Chinese are not our friends and it’s time all Americans understood that
— China is building an arsenal of weapons designed to defeat U.S. forces in battle. During the country’s National Day parade on Oct. 1, the Chinese military showcased several new weapons systems including modern nuclear-capable ICBMs and hypersonic missiles that can target every American city and destroy it within 30 minutes, all while evading existing U.S. missile defenses. In short, the Chinese are preparing, specifically, to meet and defeat the U.S. in battle.
