Democrats are never short for words on how Russia is behind every bad deed in politics. “Russia meddled in our elections…”, “Russia hacked Hillary Clinton’s emails…”, “Russia brainwashed Donald Trump…”, blah, blah, blah.
Although Russia is clearly one of the largest world threats to American interests, it just seems laughable when Democrats are so quick to kiss China’s ass. China is arguably the largest threat to all world interests, chiefly Americas. It would, therefore, go to reason that Democrats would be eager to prevent China’s influence on America.
Sadly, we see just the opposite! Time after time Nancy Pelosi has championed for China, helping to spread their influence in politics and academia…and especially loving their money.
House Democrats are now blocking a bill that will curtail the influence of the Chinese-government-funded Confucius Institute, stymying bipartisan legislation that unanimously passed in the Senate.
Despite bipartisan support in the upper chamber, House Democrats—including a cosponsor for the bill—voted against placing the CONFUCIUS Act on the agenda in late July, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) has yet to announce plans to place the bill on the floor. If passed, the legislation would require all federally funded universities with Confucius Institutes to assume “full managerial control” of the institutes, a move that would limit the Chinese government’s influence over the program.
“Good girl Nancy, here’s a bone.”
Frustrated by the lack of action, congressional Republicans are blaming Pelosi for blocking debate for the bill, criticizing the House speaker for putting politics over national security.
“I regret that Speaker Pelosi has still not scheduled the CONFUCIUS Act for a vote,” said Rules Committee Ranking Member Tom Cole, who introduced the July vote. “This isn’t about politics. It’s about holding China accountable, and Speaker Pelosi clearly hasn’t made that a priority.”
This is not the first time Democrats have opposed bipartisan legislation that sought to hold China accountable. In March, House Democrats railed against a bill that demanded Beijing disavow its conspiracy theory that the novel coronavirus originated in a U.S. military lab, labeling the bill racist against Asian Americans. House Democrats also dropped out of the then-bipartisan China task force in an unexplained, last minute decision in February.
Pelosi’s office did not respond to a request for comment.
It’s high time Republicans dug into the corruption Democrats have sold themselves into. Forget the hoax Russiagate, there is definitely evidence of Democrats sleeping in bed with Communist China, abandoning the American’s they swore to protect!
