For decades, China has been in denial about the independence and freedom the island nation of Taiwan, whose real name is the Republic of China. Tawain was formed by those who fled the communist Chinese revolution in 1949.
In 1971, globalists seeking to appease communist China arranged for the United Nations to expel Taiwan. Early the following year, globalist Henry Kissinger persuaded President Richard Nixon to turn his back on Taiwan by visiting communist China and giving it legitimacy. China and globalists have been trying to ostracize Taiwan ever since. They have even prevented Taiwan from competing in the Olympics as the independent country that it is, since 1976.
But the sentiment on the island of Taiwan is increasingly independent, as globalism is being rejected there like almost everywhere else. Taiwan’s current president, Tsai Ing-wen (TAI-ING-WEN), is more willing to assert the nationalism that Trump asserts for Americans.
Recently China demanded that businesses stop referring to Taiwan, Tibet, and Hong Kong as “countries.” Their demand reached 36 foreign airlines, insisting that they stop referring to Taiwan as a country. Many of these airlines are American carriers, such as Delta which has already apologized. Marriott hotels has also apologized to China
But President Trump continues to reject globalist pressure like China’s demand. Trump will “stand up for Americans resisting efforts by the Chinese Communist Party to impose Chinese political correctness on American companies and citizens,” press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced.
Sarah Sanders declared that the Trump Administration is telling China “to stop threatening and coercing American [airline] carriers and citizens.” That’s right: China has no authority to push around our citizens and our businesses.
Then Sanders used the “O” and the “C” words, which not even past Republican presidents were willing to do enough. “This is Orwellian nonsense and part of a growing trend by the Chinese Communist Party to impose its political views on American citizens and private companies,” Sanders observed.
George Orwell, a former leftist himself, was a visionary in criticizing the communist mindset. It’s doubtful that any press secretary has ever applied Orwell’s truths so properly to the communist attempts at message control.
