China and the New Cold War – Antiwar.com Original – Justin Raimondo

June 6, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

Originally published June 17, 1999: As we head into the 30th anniversary of Tiananmen Square and the inevitable orgy of China-bashing, it is well worth rereading Justin Raimondo’s prescient and well-researched article from the 10th anniversary in 1999. 20 years later, it holds up remarkably well.

The burst of good old-fashioned “isolationism” on the Right that followed the implosion of Communism and the end of the Cold War is in danger of sputtering to an abrupt halt. From Pat Buchanan to Gary Bauer to the congressional Republican leadership, just about every political leader and ideologue of a conservative hue has been snookered by a concerted campaign to demonize China as the new Evil Empire. A grand coalition that spans the spectrum, from the AFL-CIO to the American Conservative Union, is beating the drums for war with China.

Lest We Forget: Tiananmen Square Massacre – 30 Years Later – William F. Jasper

June 5, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

Many of the globalist elites of Wall Street and Big Tech, such as Microsoft’s Bill Gates, are helping the oppressive communist regime in Beijing.

“Tank man.” One lone individual stubbornly facing down the unstoppable, pitiless machinery of the totalitarian Communist state. On a fateful day, for a few awe-inspiring moments, one anonymous man armed only with a couple of grocery bags halted a column of tanks,briefly stopping an army on a mission of murderous rampage.

As many as ten thousand victims (or more) were slaughtered: machine-gunned, bayoneted, beaten, or ground into pulp under the treads of the army tanks. Tank Man’s unbelievably heroic and unforgettable actions have been immortalized in video and photo images that have been seen by billions of people worldwide over the past three decades. Tragically, very few of China’s nearly 1.4 billion people have seen these images, however. The Communist Party censors have made sure of that. Like everything else concerning the Tiananmen Square Massacre of June 4, 1989, “Tank Man” has gone down the Orwellian memory hole.

Thirty Years After Tiananmen Square | The American Spectator – John Jiang

On this day in 1989, the Chinese People’s Liberation Army opened fire on civilians throughout the Chinese capital of Beijing, killing hundreds of students and activists who had assembled to protest for democracy and reforms of China’s authoritarian government and political system. The incident, now known as the Tiananmen Square Massacre, shocked observers worldwide, resulting in international condemnation and sanctions.

Three decades later, democracy has not come to China. Indeed, the personalized politics of the Mao era has returned with Xi Jinping, who has overseen the introduction of “Xi Jinping Thought” into the Chinese constitution and the removal of term limits. To the east of the country, it is working at a breakneck pace to seize ocean territories in defiance of international opinion; in the west, it has interned millions of Uyghurs in “re-education camps” without trial. The Communist Party has been blunt in its efforts to undermine and dismantle the political autonomy of Hong Kong, China’s last remaining bastion of democracy. The government is notoriously unfair in its conduct of trade: companies hoping to do business in China are pressured to hand over technology, and where such pressure is infeasible, state spies have few qualms about theft.
