• Outrageous! Confronting a Communist China Which Wants to Intimidate … Everyone

    Surge Summary: The Chinese government, of course, oppresses its own people within the Chinese mainland. But it is becoming clear that the Chi-Coms also intend to intimidate and silence people outside of their borders; Chinese who are living abroad.

    China is a growing threat to freedom and free speech not just in Beijing or Hong Kong, but everywhere around the world.  As we have noted before, the NBA and major American corporations are censoring themselves and punishing American employees who dare to speak out against the brutal communist regime.  (Herehere and here.)

    Now there are reports of Chinese security officials making direct video calls to Chinese nationals living in other countries who are critical of China.  They are telling dissidents to shut up or their relatives back home may pay the price.

    In one such call, a Chinese police officer told a dissident in Australia:

    “You need to remember you are a citizen of the People’s Republic of China. . .  if China wasn’t great and strong, you would have no status. . . You are still governed by the law of China, do you understand?”

    Do you get that?  China thinks it can enforce its laws to silence criticism of the regime wherever it wants!  And it is.  A coalition of human rights groups in Canada recently warned:

    “Academic freedom and freedom of expression of university students in Canada speaking out on China has been increasingly stifled, as many individuals fear that Chinese government or consular agents are monitoring their speech or their activities.”

    I remember meeting a Chinese dissident in my office some months ago.  He told me about the six men who were watching him 24 hours a day.  They followed him wherever he went, and he saw them so frequently he knew they were Chinese agents.

    In related news, Attorney General William Barr today warned that communist China has launched an “economic blitzkrieg” aimed at replacing the United States as the world’s sole superpower.  Barr also called out several iconic American corporations by name for “bowing to Beijing.”

    There are also reports today that the Trump Administration may impose a travel ban on members of the Chinese Communist Party and their families.  Such a move could potentially prevent more than 90 million Chinese communists from entering the United States.
