(Tea Party 247) – While the coronavirus is inflicting thousands and thousands of people across the country and even killing some, the damage it is capable of isn’t simply physical, but also economic. Due to the sheer number of businesses being closed down because folks are trying to practice social distancing and keep the virus from spreading, folks are out of work and there isn’t a lot of activity in the market place.
The stock market has reflected this by plummeting and bouncing around all over the place, causing investors to be concerned about losing the money they’ve invested in various companies.
Well, attorney Gordon Chang, a recognized expert on the country of China, recently stated that he believes the communist party in the country is trying to collapse America’s economy.
Here’s more on that from BizPacReview:
Chang, who’s Chinese-American, is a bestselling author and senior fellow at the Gatestone Institute. He previously lived and worked in mainland China and Hong Kong for 20 years.
Chang says the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is running a global propaganda campaign to sink the U.S. economy and to get the world to blame the United States for causing the coronavirus, which originated in Wuhan, China.
Predictably, anti-Trump leftists and their media minions are rabidly parroting CCP talking points on social media and on television because they think it will hurt Trump.
“The Communist Party is very sensitive about its secrecy — that it covered up the virus,” Chang told Fox Business host Lou Dobbs. “The Chinese people have really been calling for fundamental political change. That ignited the Chinese population against the Communist Party.”
He continued: “So what the Party is trying to do is find an enemy. That enemy is the United States. They have come up with these dangerous claims that the U.S. Army spread the coronavirus to Wuhan.”
Chang is likely on to something here. It seems that the communist party in China made a huge error by not taking proper actions to limit the spread of the coronavirus and are looking for anyway possible to not take responsibility for their own failures. By pointing the finger at America it weakens us and also prevents them from taking the whole blame.
At the end of the day, no matter how badly the Chinese don’t want it to be true, they are responsible for this outbreak.
Gordon Chang added: “The political system in China has identified the U.S. as an enemy. And that’s why it’s important for President Trump to make it clear this virus came from China.”
He pointed out: “I’m a Chinese-American. I don’t see any racism in what President Trump is trying to do. What I see is a president defending the United States of America against a dangerous, hostile, communist regime.”
Lou Dobbs asked: “Do you think this reached a point where it’s endangering the historic trade deal the President put together with Xi Jinping?”
Chang replied: “Yes. Yesterday, China attacked the dollar in a very rhetorical op-ed piece in the Global Times. Today, they are suggesting that the world is going into a depression because of the U.S. So they are now trying to collapse the American economy.”
It just so happens that earlier this week the Chinese government tossed out American journalists from the Washington Post, the New York Times, and the Wall Street Journal. Chang went on to note this was likely done by the Communist Party to help push forward their propaganda campaign.
“What the Party is trying to do is cover up a number of things, including the origin of this virus. So, it doesn’t want more journalists in China,” he told Dobbs.
As if that’s not scary enough, Chang went on to claim that the vast number of Chinese ‘journalists’ in our country are not journalists at all, but spies who are part of the Ministry of Chinese State Security.
He added: “The U.S. has to do something about this. And so, I’m very glad the Secretary of State has taken some robust measures to protect us with regard to these quote-unquote journalists here.”
China is definitely a threat to our national security and that was true before the coronavirus. It seems they are an even bigger one now, taking full advantage of the damage they have wrought the world over due to this awful illness.
President Trump has been coming down hard on China ever since he got in office. Perhaps they are now trying to return the favor in light of this disastrous outbreak? Would it really surprise anyone?
