I simply do not understand how conservatives are continuing to claim that Joe Biden is controlled by the Chinese.
I knew that theory was moronic before the election, because I was going into the people who were running his campaign, and all of these links to these neocon think tanks. I can forgive others for not going into that during the campaign. However, at this point – Joe Biden is attempting to start some kind of war or serious conflict with the Chinese. It’s open and public.
How do you go around saying he’s controlled by the Chinese?
If the Chinese are controlling him, why are the Chinese running a smear campaign against themselves?
President Biden said Thursday that he’s “considering” a diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing amid ongoing tensions with China.
“It’s something we are considering,” Biden told reporters when asked about the boycott prior to an Oval Office meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Moments later, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said she had no update on any potential action, adding, “I want to leave the president the space to make decisions.”
The “diplomatic” boycott would be a half-measure that snubs the authoritarian nation by not sending high-level US officials to events like the opening or closing ceremonies. It would not ban US athletes from participating, as some Republican officials have demanded.
Biden held a virtual summit on Monday with Chinese President Xi Jinping, but the two leaders did not discuss the Olympics, officials said.
I wish conservatives could stop talking about the Chinese, supporting this Democrat war agenda, and instead start talking about the Democrats. But they can’t do that, because both the Republican political party and the Republican media are lined with neocons who support Joe Biden’s anti-Chinese war.
That support not only targets the Chinese via distracting the public from the real enemy, but also means that Republicans will support Joe Biden insofar as he is pushing an anti-Chinese agenda. That is to say: by obsessing over the Chinese, these fake conservatives are allowing the Democrats to get away with their crimes.
It’s stupid. Everything that the Democrats do should be opposed on principle. So if the Democrats are attacking the Chinese, it should be assumed that this is yet another devious agenda, and Republicans should refuse to support that.
