No one doubts the threat China poses to the world. They steal intellectual property but it is their treatment of their own people that is more worrisome.
Freedom is the only answer and communist China will simply not allow it on its shores and worse they are actively seeking to export their brutal brand of authoritarianism.
Yes, we should get along with China but on our terms. No one disputes that if we don’t out a check on China right now while we have the leverage the results will be catastrophic – not now but in 30 years.
Corporate America is simply too greedy to do the right thing as we see on a daily basis – look at the cowards in the NBA allowing their own free speech to be restricted inside America to appease the Chinese.
It was a sad day in American history to be sure and other corporations and Hollywood are equally guilty.
No Democrat will stand up to China – Chuck Schumer eggs on Trump from the cheap seats but we all know if a Dem gets in the Oval he will once again take the cash and look the other way be at China’s bad actions.
No, only Trump has the courage to stand tall to China so it was a delicious dose of karma when Steve Kerr, a frequent critic of Trump’s, went all wobbly on China.
Trump, of course, dropped the hammer as only he can do. From ESPN:
Kerr, who has been publicly critical of Trump and vocal on several social issues in the United States, said Monday that he had no comment when asked about the fallout from Rockets GM Daryl Morey’s tweet last week that showed support for anti-government protesters in Hong Kong.
Trump ripped Kerr two days later, saying that the three-time championship-winning coach “was like a little boy, he was so scared to be even answering the question,” Trump said. “He couldn’t answer the question — he was shaking ‘Oh, oh, oh, I don’t know. I don’t know.’
“He didn’t know how to answer the question, and yet he’ll talk about the United States very badly.”
“I watched Popovich — sort of the same thing, but he didn’t look quite as scared actually,” Trump said. “But they talk badly about the United States, but when it talks about China, they don’t want to say anything bad. I thought it was pretty sad, actually. It’ll be very interesting.”
“I watch the way that Kerr and Popovich and some of the others were pandering to China, and yet to our own country, it’s like they don’t respect it,” Trump said. “It’s like they don’t respect it. I said, ‘What a difference — isn’t it sad?’ It’s very sad. To me, it’s very sad.”
