China + The Liberal Elite: Get A Room

The NBA can’t disrespect Americans enough for knowing which bathroom to use, or having guns, or not being sufficiently woke, but let the Chinese communists get fussy because some dude dunks the reds over oppression in Hong Kong – you know, supporting freedom – and the billionaire ballers can’t gimp it up fast enough for Mao’s heirs. We haven’t seen such pathetic, eager submission to the forces of evil since the last time some Bulwark scribbler got a chance to be on a CNN panel about Trump with Ana Navarro and a cross-dressing furry.

And it’s not just the rich schmucks who own the basketball teams. It’s our entire elite, the whole useless lot of them, who can’t wait to bow down to the Pinko Peril. You just sprinkle a few bucks around DC and NY and the whole sorry lot of those who presume to be our betters start chanting, “Thank you, comrade, may I have another.”

Qatar did the same thing, buying our For Sale betters, except on a smaller scale and with less pork. And now the elite is outraged because Trump sees the scam and can’t be bought – to them, he’s the worst of both worlds.

This latest craven capitulation to foreign potentates by our loser leaders just reaffirms what those of us who are conservawoke know – that our elitists are not for us. They are for themselves, and that means they are for their overseas paymasters. They are for China, not only for that sweet, sweet commie cash, but because the Chinese Communist Party’s stranglehold on the Chinese people provides them with a template for doing the same thing to us. Think of it – a country without accountability or restraint upon the anointed few. Wait a minute, that sounds like Washington, D.C. today – at least if you’re a Democrat.

It’s almost a cliché about how New York Times hacks gush over how lucky the Chinese rulers are not to have to worry about things like the consent of the governed. It sure is easy to do the things you and your pals want done – but the people don’t want done – when the people don’t get a say. That’s our elite’s not-so-secret fantasy – to be able to impose whatever nonsense they desire upon us without us being able to object. Whether it’s converting us at straw-point to their weird climate religion, wiping out our history and culture, or simply covering up the corruption of its own – like Hairplug One’s yayo-yiffing, zipper-dropping son – the total control exercised by its efficient rulers makes China their role model.

Well, maybe not the efficiency part. Like we could trust our dingus nomenklatura to make the trains run on time. They’d screw up the train schedule, then announce that it’s no biggie because trains must be banned anyway because of global warming.

This explains why they can’t say enough good things about China, and why they desperately seek to stop us from saying bad things about China. Our crony capitalists are only too eager to help, conspiring with these communist bastards to trample the freedom of people in China and Hong Kong today, and you tomorrow. Paranoid? What have you seen in the last five years that gives you any confidence at all that any major American company wouldn’t sell out your liberty for a 1% bump to their bottom line?

The NBA is just the latest willing serfcorp to go crawling to their Eastern masters. The tech overlords have been helping the Chinese police state do its thought policing for years. What do you want to bet that cheap Chinese crap you buy at Walmart is made by Uighur with a chain around his ankle? And Hollywood? The creative types used to fume when they got notes from smarmy suits in LA. Now they’re delighted to follow the commands of the Ministry of Proper Thoughts in Beijing.

It’s not a question of whether our elite can be bought. They can. Like the man said, we have established what they are. The only question is the price. If you want Chinese money, you gotta play ball. If you want the freedom, too bad. You can’t have both.

A bit of personal corruption is bad, but this corruption is designed to undermine our country over the long run. Right now, the Chinese are ripping off our tech, building up their military, and normalizing controlled speech. All the while the people supposed to be keeping us safe are howling at Trump for pointing out the manifest corruption of swamp-son Grandmaster Cash Biden. 

Our elites are not even asleep on the job. If they were asleep, at least they wouldn’t be doing any damage. No, they are active participants in the undermining of our freedom and sovereignty, and it has got to stop. At least Donald Trump’s trying – which only makes them hate him (and you, for electing him) even more.

What can we do? Keep supporting the Trump trade policies and our military rebuild. But we need to do more. Let’s hit the weak-heart companies in the pocketbook. Let’s get our Congress, to the extent it isn’t already bought and paid for with Beijing’s bucks, to take a break from the Impeachapalooza to pass a law giving foreigners the right to go into US courts and sue any American company that assists a foreign government anywhere in violating any right found in our First Amendment. Yeah, let’s use lawyers for good instead of evil. Let’s let people who are spied on, arrested, or locked in prison sue in an American court. “But but but that will cost us zillions!” the corporate collaborators will cry. Yeah, it will. You can tick off the ChiComs, or you can tick off us – don’t choose poorly, jerks.

This can’t go on, not if we wish to remain free – and we wish it. China is wiping the floor with us, and our elite is happily operating the mop and bucket. 

What happens if our garbage ruling caste manages to get unchallenged control? Well, you can be sure that pack of over-credentialed mediocrities won’t pull off their little Reich as well as the Chinese have. Check out my action-packed yet hilarious novels of America torn apart by the kind of liberal fascism the Democrats promise, People's Republic, Indian Country and Wildfire (plus Book Number IV comes out this November)! They are banned in China and by the cruise-shilling hacks of Conservative, Inc.! Ahoy!
