The Dems’ China Tilt
By Joseph Klein | FrontPage | August 24, 2020
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are the Chinese communist regime’s dream team. If they prevail in the November election, China’s nemesis, President Trump, will be replaced by the soft-on-China Joe Biden. “I mean, you know, they’re not bad folks, folks,” Biden said last year. “They’re not competition for us.” As President Trump said following the Democratic National Convention snooze fest, “China will own our country, if he gets elected.”
The Chinese communist regime was not even mentioned at the Democrats’ convention. The speakers, from Biden on down, ignored the elephant in the room while portraying President Trump as America’s mortal enemy who had wreaked the coronavirus on Americans. For months, the Democrats have aided the Chinese regime’s propaganda campaign to deny the regime’s responsibility for the coronavirus that originated in Wuhan China.
Chinese Communist Party officials early on censored the hashtag #WuhanSARS. They also attempted to shift the blame for the virus to the United States. Joe Biden put out a statement last April complaining about President Trump’s calling the coronavirus the “Chinese Virus.” This was in keeping with Biden’s initial opposition to President Trump’s restrictions on travel from China that the president announced on January 31st. Using words that the Chinese communist party propagandists could have written themselves, Biden accused the president of xenophobia and fear mongering.
Last May, Kamala Harris obliged the Chinese regime when she introduced a resolution in the Senate that singled out the terms “Wuhan Virus” and “Chinese Virus” as examples of language that should not be used.
On the first night of the Democratic National Convention, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo came up with another regional name for the coronavirus. “The European virus infected the Northeast while the White House was still fixated on China,” Cuomo said. This blowhard thinks it’s OK to scapegoat the Europeans while conveniently leaving out the fact that the coronavirus originated in China and traveled from China to Italy as well as other parts of Europe via infected Chinese visiting or returning to their residences in Europe. It then spread to the Northeast of the United States from Europeans traveling here who were infected with the Chinese Virus. Cuomo made things far worse with his directive forcing nursing homes to accept elderly coronavirus patients from hospitals.
There would have been no coronavirus pandemic crisis if Chinese authorities had come clean when the virus could have been prevented from spreading widely beyond China’s borders. Instead, by early January 2020, Chinese authorities had already ordered COVID19 virus samples destroyed, silenced Wuhan doctors, and censored public health concerns online. They also allowed international travel from China to continue as usual, while restricting the movement of the Chinese people within China itself. The regime misled the World Health Organization (WHO) by initially discounting the virus’s human-to-human transmission, which WHO accepted at face value. The blood of more than 170,000 Americans who lost their lives to the Chinese Virus is on the Chinese regime’s hands, not on President Trump’s. Nevertheless, Biden, Harris and their fellow Democrats are doing China’s bidding in trying to deflect blame from China to President Trump and his administration.
During his acceptance speech on the final night of the Democratic National Convention, Biden recklessly blamed the president for the 5 million Americans infected with the virus and the more than 170,000 Americans who have died to date. Kamala Harris spewed out the same vitriol in her own convention acceptance speech the night before Biden spoke. Harris was even more vicious during her joint appearance with Biden following her selection as Biden’s running mate, when she charged that the president was the reason “an American dies of Covid-19 every 80 seconds.” These lies are calculated to inflame passions and divide Americans amongst themselves, playing right into the Chinese regime’s hands.
President Trump has already done everything that Biden or his proxies have recommended to deal with the virus health crisis. Indeed, the president has done far more, starting with the travel restrictions that Biden initially opposed. Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said that President Trump’s travel restrictions helped to slow the spread of the virus in the United States and saved American lives.
