Washington Post publishes glowing article that lauds growing popularity of Chinese communism
"Trump views China‚Äôs Communist Party as a threat. Young Chinese see it as a ticket to a better future."
The statement wreaks of psychological operations strategy and reads like a state-run media sales pitch for modern communism -- but rest assured, you are not reading a translation of CCP propaganda at The Western Journal.
That lovely little number was brought to you by the oh-so-principled penmen at The Washington Post.
I have spent time in a couple of communist countries. What I noticed was no middle class. The rich remained rich because they joined the party. The regular folks stood in bread lines and couldn‚Äôt even get medical care. It takes a while to get there, but they will get there under communism or socialism.
If a Christian annoys the government they are often sent off to labor camps or assigned to work somewhere away from their church and family. Or, they would charge them with crimes they didn‚Äôt commit.
The way things are going unless God intervenes we are well on our way to socialism/communism. As we all know, the communist party comes before God, family or any type of worship. The only people who might benefit from this are those who hate our Lord and Savior and want to live without working.
Judging communism as "ignorance in action" is a mistake which many people make. In fact it is Satan's ideological deception of the masses. By tempting people to believe they are all equal he contrives to convince them that they can ideologically live together in complete political harmony. Which is impossible within the human race.
The nation develops into a communist state where, "Some are more equal than others"
Thus a stalinesque dictatorship is contrived from a seemingly acceptable proposition. A despotic party and leader then takes over the hearts and minds of the masses and convinces them that their leadership can make better decisions than the individual can.
There is only one ideology more dangerous than communism - That is Liberalism. This in these modern times seeks to achieve its influence and control of people by allowing them to live in less authority and less regulation. Morals being replaced by relativism is a modern example of this duplicity. This sophistry!
Spiritual darkness and wickedness (Eph 6:12) is the origination of communism and Liberalism.
Thus by sin man allows himself to be dominated by a system which subjects him to serfdom and injustice.
Steve's, I have no problem with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, keeping track of China. Except for the matter that Russia is a much bigger problem, or at least Putin is, who does hate the United States‚ĚóūüĎé
CBS News wrote: In this episode of Intelligence Matters, host Michael Morell speaks with Franklin Foer, journalist and staff writer for The Atlantic, about America's preparedness for potential Russian election interference in 2020. Foer, whose latest piece, "Putin Is Well on his Way to Stealing the Next Election," examined the lingering vulnerabilities in U.S. election systems, explains where weaknesses still exist and how Russian operatives may be altering their tactics ahead of the presidential election.
‚ÄĘ Deterring Russia:¬†".... Even the question of Russian interference itself has become this partisan issue. And when the intelligence community wants to relay information about an attack, it's now questioned as being a partial, partisan actor in it, not a credible re-teller of a narrative. And I think Putin and when he surveys the scene, has got to be incredibly pleased [...]"

Media Bias/Fact Check wrote: Based on reviews by all of our researchers, WND is a Questionable online news source that has a far-right bias and dabbles in right-wing conspiracies such as President Obama‚Äôs birth certificate. They also use misleading clickbait headlines that do not always match the content of the article (See M. Allen‚Äôs review below). WND also has a very poor track record with fact-checkers:...

Media bias/fact check usually gets the ratings of these sites right 90% of the time.
They did one slip-up on WND on this article, though, "making mountains out of molehills."
This is pretty convincing evidence that the Cultural Revolution 2.0 is not limited to within the borders of the PRC but has spread further to the US. It gives credence to those, like me, who have suggested we are in the midst of a Marxist uprising. And it points to the growing spread of an incidious evil so pernacious as to attempt to slip in undetected. Some may cheer at its arrival. Others of us must fallen upon our knees before the Lord and cry for His mercy upon our nation.
Go read some history. You won't love communism anymore. Go talk to people who lived through it. Ask if they would want to return to that system. They will tell you no way. Please people on the left consider this. And realize that the left position today is much different than in past decades. Let's remain free. This is not a left or right issue. This is a human right.
Jim, understand that what is in the news is there for a purpose‚ÄĒgenerally to reflect the ideology of the reporter. But the telling phrase is in your post: ‚Äú...mainly because he wants a future in academia...‚ÄĚ When you have a system that pushes you to define your politics a certain way in order to have education or advancement‚ÄĒthat is the problem. (And , unfortunately, where the US is heading.) Just saying.
The most recent article I can find on the counters party in China in the Washington Post, seems to be a matter of fact information piece on why Chinese used want to join the Party. It is hardly a whitewash of the Communist Party in China.

He wants to join partly because he agrees with the party ideology, but mainly because he wants a future in academia ‚ÄĒ and membership will help with that. This is even with the knowledge that party membership would make it more difficult to study in the United States, where Chinese scientists are increasingly viewed as spies....
