On June 30, 2020, Tennessee Senator sent the NBA a letter listing some of the heinous acts of genocide that the Chinese government is committing against ethnic minorities.
In the same letter, Blackburn raised questions about the NBA’s relationship with the Chinese Communist Party.
The Senator complimented the safety measures the NBA implemented by suspending their season, but then proceeded to ask the NBA some incisive questions.
“Your league’s business interests are closely intertwined with Communist China’s estimated $4 billion NBA market,” Blackburn stated in the letter. “While the NBA has worked hard to raise awareness of social issues at home, there is concern that the league has turned a blind eye to human rights abuses committed abroad — even bowing down to pressure last year.”
The Tennessee senator finished off her letter by asking three specific questions that she wanted the NBA to address.
Sports Illustrated reported on Blackburn’s request and obtained a copy of the letter:
As the league reconvenes, further details on its relationship with China are imperative. Please provide a written response to the below inquiries by July 21, 2020.
What are the anticipated financial consequences of China Central Television’s (CCTV) continued ban on the airing of NBA games?
Please continue the scope of the NBA’s relationship with Chinese state-owned enterprise Alibaba.
The NBA reportedly continues to operate a training center Xinjiang, one of the world’s worst humanitarian zones. What steps is the NBA taking to shutter this location?
Blackburn cited the case of Xinjiang, where Uyghur Muslims and “ethnic Kazakhs” are being thrown into concentration camps for “free hospital treatment for the masses with sick thinking.”
Although China has made some changes in the 1980s. it still maintains many vestiges of oriental despotic past and is not on the same wavelength as the West.
American policymakers need to rethink trade relations with China, along with migration polices as well. Astute realpolitik with countries surrounding it (both Koreas, Russia, Japan, and India) can keep in check and prevent it from expanding at will.
VIDEO: America First PAC Defends Marjorie Greene and Rips Her Swamp Opponent a New One
Congressional candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene is going on offense against her Republican rival John Cowan.
Greene is currently running in Georgia’s 14th congressional district and will be facing off against Cowan during a runoff election on August 11.
Drain the DC Swamp PAC, a conservative PAC that promotes America First candidates, recently posted several messages on FB in favor of Greene.
On August 4, 2020, the PAC posted “We fully endorse Marjorie Taylor Greene for Congress for Congress and call on all patriots in Northwest Georgia to turn out for her and VOTE on August 11th. She is pro-Trump and conservative. Our nation is under attack by godless socialists who hate America and we need a fighter in Congress who will stop them. These same socialists are trying to vote in the primary to stop Marjorie Greene. We must not let that happen! Vote Marjorie Greene to save America from the radical left!”
A few days later, the PAC page attacked Cowan by declaring that “John Cowan is the SWAMP and is backed by the SWAMP.”
John Cowan is the SWAMP and is backed by the SWAMP. He won’t stand up to the socialists. He is OK with renaming our great Georgia military bases – Fort Benning and Fort Stewart. Fort Benning trains the US Army Infantry, Airborne, and Rangers. Fort Stewart is the home of the prestigious 3rd Infantry Division.These two bases trained and deployed America’s combat soldiers all throughout the world and they are the same bases who trained the fighting men who won two world wars.Vote AGAINST sellout John Cowan.
The PAC called on voters in Georgia’s 14th district to vote against Cowan “or he will sell out to the socialists.”
Drain the DC Swamp PAC is an organization that promotes conservative policies such as “protecting life to protecting our borders, we support those who fight for traditional values, our Constitution, and our Country.”
The PAC also supports “President Trump’s vision of a government of, by, and for the people. We believe the people have the right to know what their government is doing, and support leaders who aren’t afraid to hold it accountable.”
This is one race America First champions cannot ignore.
