In an article at China Central Television, CCP mouthpieces attacked Steve Bannon and the American populist movement.
Bannon has made a name for himself in his attacks against China during the last several years. He has recently taken the CCP to task for its mishandling of the Wuhan virus and demanded that it “be held financially accountable for the pandemic.”
The outlet described Bannon as “ultra-right” and claimed that his “remarks ignore the facts and international law, attempting to shift the blame onto China as U.S. infections surpass a million and its economy experiences the sharpest downturn since the 2008 financial crisis.”
Bannon was accused by CCTV of holding “aggressive far-right political views, regularly advocating racism and xenophobia.”
It added that “Bannon has continued to frame China as the major “threat to America” in a desperate attempt to salvage his doomed political career.”
CCTV insisted that China has behaved well throughout this pandemic:
Despite the far-right agitator’s attempt to blackmail China and turn the international community against it, his nonsense will not alter the facts. Since the coronavirus outbreak, China has dutifully reported the situation to the World Health Organization, shared the virus’ genetic sequencing as soon as it became available, and immediately engaged in international cooperation with experts.
The state-owned outlet then concluded:
U.S. citizens should realize that if they become sidetracked by people like Bannon, they could lose control of their prevention and control work, throwing the country’s future into turmoil. The biggest threat facing the U.S. is not the new virus, but rather right-wing populists who are intent on creating trouble with their strain of political virus.
Soon users on Twitter commented on the content of this article.
Journalist Jack Posobiec tweeted, “BREAKING: The Chinese media has just admitted they are terrified of Steve Bannon and American Trump-supporting populists and dubbed us ‘the biggest threat’ They’re terrified.”

American populism is the response to China’s rise as a superpower.
Its ascent has largely been enabled by the globalist class’ fetish for open borders and free trade with the authoritarian country.
China is a nuclear power and won’t fall via neoconservative regime change.
But it’s behavior can be changed through the smart use of soft power such as tariffs and immigration restriction.
Let’s see if D.C. is willing to embrace this challenge.
Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation
Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.
Under The Background Check Expansion Act, gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House
“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.
According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.
Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms.
Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.
Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
