Republican Senator Rick Scott (FL) called on Americans to stop buying products from Communist China. He noted that Americans live in an age when the country’s billionaire class is in bed with China suppliers.
‘They Are Not Our Friend’
Speaking on a New York AM radio talk show, Scott differentiated between Communist China and ordinary Chinese citizens. “We should stop buying anything from communist China. They are not our friends.
The people are wonderful. The government is despicable,” he said, as reported by Newsmax. In addition, he thinks China has an ulterior motive. “The government of China, communist China, what they want to do is they want to dominate the world,” Scott added.
Scott recalled the Cold War with the Soviet Union. During those times, he said the US didn’t trade extensively with the former communist country. Americans “never thought about buying anything from the Soviet Union,” he said.
Communist China’s Human Rights Abuses
Then, Scott proceeded to list China’s litany of human rights abuses. He mentioned the country’s alleged organ-harvesting practices, as well as its policy of suppression of religion.
In addition, he pointed to China’s encroachment on the sovereignty of Hong Kong. “They don’t believe in your rights. If you look at how they treat their own citizens, how do you think they think about Americans?
They put a million people in prison [by] their religion. They involuntarily harvest your organs if you’re in prison,” he said. He then added that Hong Kong citizens lost their rights overnight.
“They took away the basic rights of Hong Kong citizens. They built their military to defeat the U.S. military. They’re threatening Taiwan right now. So, the way we can beat them is we have got to stop doing business with them — stop,” he said.
In addition, Scott noted that the more the United States continues to help grow the Chinese economy, the weaker America will get.
Ultimately, this will allow Communist China to become a world superpower unlike any other. “We cannot continue to help them build their economy, because as their economy grows and gets bigger than ours, we will never be able to beat or defend if they want to invade Taiwan, or wherever they want to go.
They are an expansionary country. China, they want to control every country all over the world,” he remarked.
Suspicion On COVID-19 Origins
The Florida Senator’s demolition of China follows recent reports implicating the country’s involvement in the origin of COVID-19. Earlier, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo recently stated that current evidence led him to think COVID-19 started as a lab leak.
“We know for sure they covered up this virus. I am confident that we will find that the evidence that we have seen to date is consistent with a lab leak and I’m convinced that’s what we’ll see. If I am wrong, I hope the Chinese Communist Party will come forward and make a fool of me,” Pompeo said on Fox News.
Also, Pompeo recalled how China ignored the Trump administration and went dark after the first reported case of COVID-19 surfaced in the US.
“They wouldn’t take our phone calls, they wouldn’t answer our questions. We sent inquiries, we couldn’t get a straight answer. The Chinese Communist Party clearly knew they had a problem, they didn’t want the world to know it and I’m convinced they still know they have a problem and don’t want us to know it,” Pompeo said.
