Stand with the Chinese Communist Party’s captive nations – Present and prospective

Seventy-one years ago today, the Chinese Communist Party established the most monstrous government ever. Largely lost to memory is the fact that it accomplished this feat with indispensable help from communist operatives and fellow travelers inside another government – ours.

In the intervening seven decades, a regime that went on to murder a hundred million of its own people and those of neighboring nations it conquered has become vastly more dangerous to the rest of the world – which it explicitly seeks to dominate. Once again, powerful American political and corporate forces have enabled this frightening transformation, among other things by underwriting it.

Today’s terrible anniversary will be marked around the world by representatives of the PRC’s Captive Nations – those already enslaved and others now falling prey to its empire-building “Belt and Road Initiative.” We must stand with them and against the CCP.

This is Frank Gaffney.
