Despite China’s ever-expanding persecution of Christians and Muslims, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said Thursday the Communist country is “growing into a respectable nation.”
“We hold China as a potential trading partner, as a country that has pulled tens of millions of people out of poverty in a short period of time, and as a country growing into a respectable nation amongst nations,” Feinstein said during a Senate Judiciary Committee meeting. “I deeply believe that.”
What the Democratic senator from California said could not be further from the truth. China is, in fact, far from a “respectable nation.”
A quick Google search could have disabused Feinstein, who sits on the Select Committee on Intelligence, of that obviously faulty notion.
But since she apparently forgot all the intel she’s privy to, as well as the endless laundry list of public reports about the abuses taking place in China, here are a few examples:
- Schools in China are indoctrinating children against the “evil cult” of Christianity, urging kids to report Christian parents
- China is using the Bible to wrongly attack the U.S. while also demanding Scripture be rewritten to promote communism
- The Chinese regime is continuing to arrest and charge Christian ministers for no reason
- Despite the pandemic, the Chinese government is still destroying churches and stealing Christian crosses
That’s just four headlines from the last year.
And Xi’s regimes has implemented a new, oppressive security law as mainland China continues to tighten its grip on the once-autonomous Hong Kong.
