Chinese Laughing at Us

by | Jun 3, 2020

How badly off course is the USA when the Chinese Communist Party’s essentially fascist dictatorship can credibly laugh and mock our failures like this?

The Clinton, Bush, Obama and Trump governments have driven this country into the ground with their horrible foreign, economic and police state policies and made a mockery out of our slogans of freedom.

“The violent protests in the streets of urban America are further discrediting the U.S. in the eyes of ordinary Chinese,” said Susan Shirk, chair of the U.C. San Diego 21st Century China Center. “The propaganda depicts American politicians as hypocrites living in glass houses while throwing stones at China.”

Ms. Shirk said that as the reputation of the United States suffers in China, fewer people might be willing to voice support for American ideals, such as free markets and civil liberties.

“Even without the propaganda, Chinese people nowadays find little to admire in the U.S.,” she said. “As the U.S. model is tarnished, the voice of Chinese liberals is silenced.”

Great job remaking the world, guys.

Substantive Due Process
