US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo calls on free world to unite against Chinese ‘tyranny’. By Cameron Stewart.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has called on all free nations to summon the courage to rise as one against Chinese “tyranny” regardless of what economic punishment Beijing may wreak upon them. …

Mr Pompeo did not mention countries by name but he said some US allies were still fearful of calling China out fully for its tyrannical behaviour because they feared economic retribution. …

Mr Pompeo cited Australia as an American ally that was awake to the true nature of the CCP. …

Mr Pompeo said the old paradigm of ‘blind engagement’ with China has failed. “We must not continue it. We must not return to it. The free world must triumph over this new tyranny.” …

If we don’t act now, ultimately, the CCP will erode our freedoms and subvert the rules-based order free societies have built. If we bend the knee now, our children’s children may be at the mercy of the CCP, whose actions are the primary challenge to the free world.”

He described Chinese President Xi Jinping as a true believer in “bankrupt totalitarian ideology”, which harbours a decades-long desire for global hegemony built on Chinese Communism.

“We must start by changing how our people and our partners perceive the Chinese Communist Party,” he said.

Mr Pompeo suggested a group of like-minded democracies be formed to meet the challenges posed by a rising and aggressive China.

“We can’t face this challenge alone,” he said. “The UN, NATO, the G7, the G20, our combined economic, diplomatic, and military power is surely enough to meet this challenge, if directed properly.” …

“Communists always lie, but the biggest lie is that the Chinese Communist Party speaks for 1.4 billion people who are surveilled, oppressed, and scared to speak out,” he said.

“Quite the contrary. The CCP fears the Chinese people’s honest opinions more than any foreign foe. And save for losing their own grip on power, they have no reason to.

“We can’t ignore the Chinese people any longer. They know as well as anyone that we can never go back to the status quo of engagement on the CCP’s terms.”

Looking around for the next Republican leader after Donald Trump, I see Tucker Carlson then Mike Pompeo.

The left also sees them, so it is going after them with doxxing and dubious sexual harassment claims.
