China has slavery and workers oppression to this very day…and they tell you that they are “progressive”. Little do they tell you that what they are “progressing” towards is communist authoritarianism that does not help anyone who is marginalized or not in power.
China is also using it’s money and economic muscle to pressure state and local governments and interfere with our elections. You don’t see Democrats or Joe Biden lifting a finger to stop it.
Imagine that far-right demonstrators were laying siege to American cities for months, led by activists explicitly calling for an “ethno-state,” and that one of their groups was funded by an outfit involved with Vladimir Putin’s Russia. It would lead the news every day and there would be congressional hearings, right?
And rightly so. The threat of foreign interference in our domestic affairs is a serious matter, whether the suspects are rivals such as Russia or friendlies such as Mexico. This is especially the case if a foreign power were abetting unrest that aims to topple our constitutional order.
Well, the scenario described above is happening, though not with Russia or the far right, but with China and the leftist disturbances upending America and seeking to transform it.
Yet, there has not been a peep from the media or Congress about China’s support of the riots.
Go to the website for the Black Futures Lab, a venture of Black Lives Matter founder Alicia Garza, and click on the “Donate” button. It will ask you to send your money to an obscure organization, the Chinese Progressive Association, explaining that “Black Futures Lab is a fiscally sponsored project of the Chinese Progressive Association.”
The CPA was founded in San Francisco in 1972 during the heady days of the Marxist-oriented Asian American Movement, and today it also has a very active chapter in Boston. From its start, it has been a promoter of the People’s Republic of China.

China Peddling Communist Propaganda in U.S. State and Local Governments
The Chinese Communist Party is engaged in an effort to infiltrate and conduct espionage on state and local U.S. governments, the latest front in a growing proxy war between America and the Communist regime, according to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
During a Wednesday speech in Madison, Wis., Pompeo pulled the curtain back on the Communist Party’s efforts to peddle influence and cultivate allies in America’s state and local governments. While the Trump administration has worked to ice China out of the federal government, local institutions have been more receptive to CCP influence operations, Pompeo said.
“CCP campaigns targeting state-level officials, and local interests, have been in full swing for years, and they’re increasing in intensity,” Pompeo said. “The Party and its proxies aim to make Americans receptive to Beijing’s form of authoritarianism.”
Chinese officials are using their American consulates to mount pressure campaigns on local governments, encouraging them to pass laws and resolutions that Beijing sees as beneficial to its image. These can take the form of measures praising China’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, which have been pushed in several state legislative bodies, or other initiatives meant to diminish U.S. ties to disputed Taiwan. These efforts are punctuated by “CCP influence and espionage campaigns at the municipal and city level,” according to Pompeo.
