The communist regime in China is using “vocism” as a geopolitical tool to undermine American democracy, said Vivek Ramaswamy, author of “Voq, Inc.: Inside Corporate America’s Social Justice Scam”.
“They [China] Ramaswamy said, “Using it to divide us, as a kink in our armor to divide us from within, corporations to criticize the injustice here, a glimpse into the injustice out there.” without and are disregarding accountability for their human rights abuses,” Ramaswamy said. In a recent interview with EpochTV’s “American Thought Leaders”.
He said American companies like the NBA and Disney—which criticize social issues in the United States but remain silent on China’s human rights abuses such as those in Xinjiang—are actually empowering communist China.
In 2020, Disney drew heavy criticism when it was revealed that it had filmed a live-action remake of “Mulan” in the far-west region of Xinjiang, China, where Beijing sent more than 1 million Uighurs and other Muslim minorities to internment camps. in closed. Several governments, including the United States, have described China’s persecution in Xinjiang as a “genocide”.
The NBA was in hot water in 2019 after the then-general manager of the Houston Rockets, Daryl Morey, backed Hong Kong pro-democracy protesters in a Twitter post. The Chinese regime, which cast the protesters as “rioters”, suspended broadcasting of NBA games in retaliation, while Chinese companies severed ties with the league.
In an apologetic statement, the NBA said Morey’s tweet was “regrettable” and “deeply hurt many of our friends and fans in China.” However, the league did not succumb to Chinese pressure to discipline or fire More.
“What the effect of doing is creating a false moral equivalence between the United States and China,” he explained.
He added: “And it really destroys our greatest geopolitical asset, it’s not our nuclear arsenal, it’s our moral position on the global stage.”
Meanwhile, the Chinese regime is “rolling out the red carpet” for companies criticizing injustice in the United States, Ramaswamy said. For example, he pointed to the US online lodging platform Airbnb, which has voiced for the Black Lives Matter movement.
Ramaswamy argued that Airbnb paid Beijing a “dirty bribe” when it shared its guest data with Chinese officials in exchange for being able to do business in China.
In March, more than 190 global campaign groups wrote an open letter to Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky, asking them to withdraw their support for the 2022 Winter Olympics in China’s capital Beijing because of the communist regime’s horrific human rights record.
“Airbnb should not encourage the wider tourism industry to support and flourish at the expense of Uyghur and Tibetan rights,” the groups wrote.
Airbnb, which partnered with the International Olympic Committee in 2019, is one of the organization’s 15 major sponsors.
Ramaswamy said, “the way they are” [China] Turning our own companies into Trojan horses to weaken us from within is the flip side of the modern Battle of Troy. They’ve sent the Trojan Horse in.”
He explained that the modern-day awakening, which Ramaswamy characterized as a “culture of self-criticism”, is similar to old school Chinese communist politics as well as the Red Guards of former Chinese leader Mao Zedong.
“It is time to live effectively in the modern Red Guard revolution in America, except that while the Chinese Red Guard is carrying forward the philosophy of Marxism, the New Red Guard is pushing it through all of our major institutions beyond the private sector. People, they are carrying forward this new philosophy of awakening,” he said.
He added: “Someone inside needed to ring the alarm bell.”
Mao instigated the Red Guards, who were Chinese high school and university students, to persecute those identified as “class enemies” of the communist regime, which lasted 10 years until Mao’s death in 1976. was in the middle.
Ramaswamy warned that “American greatness” would end if Americans were not able to reverse the trend.
he explained, “[We need to] Harness and rediscover our own culture of excellence, our own culture of the unchallenged pursuit of excellence through our system of free enterprise, and through our democracy in ways that need to be looked at by the superficial demands of the Awakening Movement. “
