Remember how Russia supposedly elected Trump using only the television ad budget of a failed congressional race in Amish country?
The Senate intelligence report actually found that “most of the videos” put up by Moscow “pertained to police brutality and the activist efforts of the Black Lives Matter organization”.
The Russians had created their own Black Lives Matter groups, activists and protests. Their favorite ‘Black Russian’ hate groups included Marxists who under their “gender non-conforming” leader marched through Atlanta shouting, “Kill the police! To get free, you’ve got to kill the pigs.”
Not to be outdone, the People’s Republic of China decided to join the fun by paying black nationalists to organize rallies against a ban on solar panels produced by its slave laborers.
In a historical irony, black nationalists went out to protest in defense of slavery.
At least two known protests were organized in Washington D.C. where a crowd waved signs outside the White House with terrible slogans like ‘Solar Panels are Paneless, Leave Them Alone’, and ‘I’m Getting Heated,- Leave My Solar Panels Alone.’ Coverage of a previous rally by an alleged Chinese propaganda outlet claimed that “except for Caucasians, other races are restricted by law in terms of rights, and they even do not have the right to participate in politics.”
The organizer of the first rally has since been identified as Imani Wj Wright, a black nationalist activist who told CNN that he was hired through a gig work site to set up a flash mob. The organizer of the second rally is unknown but a photo displayed on Chinese propaganda sites featured a woman holding up signs related to the Socialist Worker organization. It’s unknown if the British leftist group actually took part in the solar panel protest in Washington D.C.
While the Chinese effort to recruit Black Lives Matter to its cause may seem more amateurish than the Russians, Beijing is slowly picking up on the vocabulary of wokeness. Chinese propaganda coverage of its own protests claimed that “anti-racist educators link racism and white privilege, insisting that they are essentially intertwined concepts—as long as there is any form of racism, a certain form of white privilege will work” and that, “before advocating global peace and democracy, the US should resolve its domestic conflicts and protect people’s livelihood rather than go bare-handed on the world stage.”
That was big of the People’s Republic of China which had responded to the outbreak of the Wuhan Virus by blaming it on African workers and expelling them from hotels and housing to stop the disease. Then there was the time that Communist state television decided to celebrate its relationship with black people by having a Chinese woman in blackface with a fruit basket on her head accompanied by a monkey shouting, “I love Chinese people! I love China!”
And this was Chinese state television actively trying not to be racist.
The Chinese Communist dictatorship obviously doesn’t have any respect for its useful idiots, but this latest revelation is a reminder that black nationalism remains a dangerous fifth column.
There had already been evidence of collusion between Chinese front groups and BLM activists during the race riots of 2020, but here the Communist dictatorship appeared to be recruiting black activists to explicitly campaign for its own economic goals inside the United States.
In 2020, Black Lives Matter riots inflicted the worst enemy assault on American cities since 9/11. It’s not surprising that on seeing the handiwork of the racist domestic terrorist movement that China is interested in being in the BLM business. Chinese propaganda outlets have amplified and tried to incite racial conflict after police shootings. Xinhua, a state propaganda outlet, has tweeted out the racist BLM hashtag and showed up to interview people in hot spots.
Chinese diplomats practicing confrontational ‘Wolf Warrior’ diplomacy have used slogans such as, “I can’t breathe” and accused America of racism. This follows an extended history of alliances between Maoists and black nationalists. When Robert F. Williams fled the United States, he headed to Castro’s Cuba, then to China where he wrote and dispatched his propaganda to the United States. In China, Williams tried to form ties between the Nation of Islam and the Communist regime for a joint campaign to overthrow America.
“Let me thank our great leader and teacher, the architect of people’s warfare, Chairman Mao Tse-tung, for his great and inspiring statement in support of our struggle. And to our great Chinese brothers and true revolutionaries throughout the world, we revolutionary Afro-Americans vow that we shall take the torch of freedom and justice into the streets of racist America and we shall set the last great stronghold of Yankee imperialism ablaze with our battle cry of Black Power!” Williams, who is remembered as a civil rights leader, had declared.
Communist China had welcomed a Black Panther delegation led by domestic terrorist Huey P. Newton. “What I experienced in China was the sensation of freedom,” Newton claimed after meeting with Premier Zhou Enlai. It’s a long way from that to paying a few protesters to march around Washington D.C. chanting, “Solar, solar, you are not the controller”.
China is trying to rebuild its relationships with black nationalist groups. The trouble though is that while the PRC is officially Communist, it’s not the brand of brutal revolutionary mass murder that convinced Williams, Newton and others that the future lay with Maoism not with Moscow.
Maoist China was able to convince black nationalists that it represented a revolutionary vanguard, but today it all too obviously stands for nothing except a Han Chinese oligarchy. And how better can Beijing demonstrate that than by organizing black nationalists to chant in favor of Chinese slave labor solar panels. While China may not especially excite the “trained Marxists” of BLM, the existence of a fifth column remains an ongoing national security threat.
If Beijing decides to invest enough money in BLMers, the next race riots may be Made in China.
