Never question their patriotism. There’s no point in searching for non-existent things anyway.
Rep. Judy Chu has a long history of behaving inappropriately and then accusing her critics of racism. Call it the Obama or the Buttigieg Maneuver.
Now she’s extra outraged.
House Democrats are up in arms after a GOP lawmaker suggested Rep. Judy Chu (D-Calif.), the nation’s first Chinese American congresswoman, is disloyal to the United States.
“I question her either loyalty or competence,” Rep. Lance Gooden told Fox News on Wednesday. “If she doesn’t realize what’s going on then she’s totally out of touch with one of her core constituencies.”
Chu issued a statement Thursday calling Gooden’s remarks “racist,” and her Democratic allies in the House are now rushing to Chu’s defense and demanding an apology from Gooden.
“At a time when anti-Asian hate continues to threaten communities, it’s critical that we condemn these racist and xenophobic attacks immediately and hold our fellow colleagues accountable to rid our politics of such dangerous statements and hatred,” Rep. Suzan DelBene (D-Wash.), head of the Democrats’ campaign arm, said Friday in a statement.
Fang was reportedly active from 2011 to 2014, based primarily out of the San Francisco area. As a Chinese national, she did not make campaign donations herself, but she is said to have been involved in fundraising efforts on behalf of members of Congress including Eric Swalwell, Mike Honda, Judy Chu, and Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard. She volunteered in the office of Fremont mayor Bill Harrison and with the 2014 campaign of Ro Khanna, and was in contact with Cupertino mayor Gilbert Wong.
Fang helped with a fundraiser for Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) in 2013, according to a flyer from the event Fang shared on Facebook. She appeared in photos over multiple years with a host of California politicians, including Khanna, Swalwell, Rep. Judy Chu (D-Calif.) and then-Rep. Mike Honda (D-Calif.).
Chu’s office said they have no records of Christine Fang. Honda said he had no memory of meeting Fang.
And that’s just the tip of the ‘Chuberg’ as Discover the Networks reveals in our profile of Chu.
In 1982 Chu became an Interim Executive Committee member of the now-defunct Federation For Progress (FFP), a Marxist united front organization created by the highly militant Communist Workers Party (CWP). According to author/blogger Trevor Loudon, CWP not only “followed the policies of Mao Tse Tung, Joseph Stalin and … Pol Pot,” but also “originally gave some support to the Islamists of the Iranian Revolution.”
During the 34th inauguration ceremony of the executive committee of the Forums for Peaceful Reunification of China (FPRC) – an event which was held in Monterey Park, California on August 23, 2019 — Chu was named “honorary chairwoman” of FPRC. Some key facts about FPRC:
FPRC had been previously identified by the U.S.-China Economic Security and Review Commission (USCC) as an organization that served a Chinese Communist Party (CCP) “intelligence service.”
But don’t you dare question her patriotism or that of Rep. Ilhan Omar or that of Alger Hiss.
