    Surge Summary: A bipartisan (!!) Congressional Commission has recognized evidence of genocide occurring in China. Canada raised its protests as well. The Chinese Communist government is not happy with this trend. Meantime, Democrats currently seem to be pushing policies which, in various ways, troublingly reflect Chi-Com instincts.

    There is growing pressure around the world to hold communist China accountable for the genocide that is taking place against the Uighurs and other ethnic minorities.

    The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, which I serve on, has been warning for years about communist China’s growing human rights atrocities. (To call them “abuses” would be a gross understatement.)

    Last month, the bi-partisan Congressional-Executive Commission on China declared that there was evidence of genocide in the Xinjiang province.  This week, the Canadian parliament unanimously approved a resolution condemning the genocide against the Uighurs and called for the 2022 Winter Olympics to be moved from Beijing.

    The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is not happy about the growing focus on its horrific human rights record.

    The CCP’s primary propaganda outlet issued an opinion piece this week blasting the “five eyes alliance” (the intelligence sharing alliance between the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Australia and New Zeeland) as “today’s axis of white supremacy.”

    That’s a really catchy phrase.  I wonder where they got an idea like that.  The Communist Chinese must be reading talking points from Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and other progressive anti-American organizations.

    Or is it the other way around?

    Is China Our Future?

    Conservatives and most Americans want to beat communist China.  But a new poll suggests that many worry Joe Biden is going soft on the communist regime.  They’re right to be concerned.

    Meanwhile, there is growing evidence that some on the left want to be like communist China.  For example:


    • You can’t open an independent media outlet in Communist China.  Right now Democrats are holding hearings pressuring cable providers to cancel or censor Fox News and Newsmax TV.
    • Communist China used COVID as an excuse to crackdown on churches.  When COVID hit the United States, leftwing mayors and governors used it as an excuse to close churches while keeping abortion facilities, casinos and marijuana stores open.
    • The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom advocates on behalf of prisoners of conscience.  Many of them are in communist China because they have the courage to practice their faith even when it goes against the policies of the Chinese Communist Party.  The political left tried to bankrupt the Little Sisters of the Poor.  It threatened John MacArthur and other pastors with jail and severe fines for defying the COVID lockdowns.  And it is stripping legal protections from faith-based institutions in the Equality Act.
    • You can’t publish a book in China that defies the CCP.  Here in America major publishers and retailers are banning books that don’t toe the left’s ideological line.
    • If you attend a demonstration in China or misbehave in anyway, you risk getting canceled.  You can’t get a loan, go to your doctor and your child might not be allowed to go to college.  There may be travel restrictions imposed on you.  The American left invented doxing to intimidate and silence conservatives.  Remember what happened to Nick Sandmann?  The left tried to drive Jack Phillips out of business.  When one American basketball manager tried to defend free speech in Hong Kong, the NBA canceled his free speech.

    I could go on, but you get the point.

    For years, we were told that trade with communist China would change communist China.  It hasn’t.  Instead, it has changed us as the left has increasingly adopted the worst aspects of communist China’s anti-American rhetoric and anti-liberty behaviors.
