A Lesson in Chinese Communist Media Control


A Lesson in Chinese Communist Media Control

Influence by the CCP and its functionaries must be pushed out of the darkness and into the light.

Democrats and neocons proclaim that Russia represents the primary geopolitical threat to American interests. They are wrong. In fact, it is China that has demonstrated its blatant willingness to manipulate the American psyche through direct intervention of the American media.

Much of China’s power is exerted in the shadows, through subversion and infiltration. Still, they are also mastering the art of lawfare and the use of frivolous legal threats to enact their agenda of silencing opponents and quashing harmful information.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) often uses its assets to do its dirty work on its behalf, using financial leverage over individuals whose fortunes rest upon favorable treatment from the ruling class.

One such example of a globalist financier with deep ties to China is Weijian Shan, who is locked in a lawsuit with famed CCP dissident Miles Guo and is attempting to silence a publisher for exposing harsh truths about CCP’s massive web of government and corporate influence.

Considering Shan owes his international tycoon status directly to support from the CCP, it should come as no surprise that Shan finds himself locked in a feud with Guo, a Chinese patriot who is among the most outspoken opponents of Chinese Communism on Earth. Shan is using his adeptness at lawfare in an attempt to censor an article featuring facts unfavorable to the oligarch.

He is also using CCP tactics of lawfare and frivolous threats in an attempt to force the Washington Times to remove an article they published mentioning Shan’s business ties.

“The article all but declares that Mr. Shan and the trustee are agents of the Chinese Communist Party (‘CCP’), and that both men are ‘weaponizing’ the bankruptcy process against [Guo] and on behalf of the CCP. [Guo] is presented as an innocent victim of the Chinese government,” Shan’s lawyers wrote in a cease-and-desist letter to the Washington Times.
