Beijing Enraged Over Proposed U.S. Visa Ban On All Chinese Communist Party Members
Blacklisting millions of card-carrying Communists will be an ‘affront’ to Beijing, says China’s Foreign Ministry.
Beijing is angered over a proposed U.S. travel ban on all Chinese Communist Party members. Washington’s decision to blacklist millions of card-carrying Communists will be an ‘affront’ to China, Chinese media reported citing country’s Foreign Ministry.
“The leadership of the Communist Party is the fundamental feature of socialism with Chinese characteristics,” Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying declared on Friday, adding that country’s Communist Party “made a huge contribution to the advancement of mankind.”
The remarks came after the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and other U.S. media outlets reported that the White House was considering a travel ban on more than 90 million member of President Xi Jinping-led Communist Party. “The Trump administration is considering banning travel to the United States by all members of the Chinese Communist Party and their families,” the news agency Reuters reported on Friday. The proposed travel ban coincides with the suppression of civil liberties and the crackdown on pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo did not reveal the details of the proposed actions against Beijing, but iterated Washington’s resolve to hit back hard against the Chinese Communist Party. “We’re working our way through, under the president’s guidance, about how to think about pushing back against the Chinese Communist Party,” he told reporters on Wednesday.
Hong Kong newspaper the South China Morning Post reported Beijing’s response:
China said the US would antagonise the 1.4 billion Chinese people if it went ahead with a plan to ban entry for all members of the ruling Communist Party.
The US Trump administration is reportedly reviewing a proposal of a sweeping ban on travel to the United States by members of the Communist Party of China, a move that would further strain ties between the world’s two biggest economies. Beijing has called the US “pathetic” and “ridiculous” amid such reports.
“If the reports are true, the US is choosing to stand in opposition to all the 1.4 billion Chinese people, which is standing in opposition against one-fifth of the world’s population,” Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said on Friday. (…)
The ban would effectively deny entry to the United States by the nearly 92 million members of the 99-year-old party, which encompasses all levels of the Chinese society from the top political and business elites to the grass roots.
Hua said the party was deeply embedded into Chinese society and was integral to the success of the Chinese nation.
While recounting the ‘achievements’ of the Chinese Communist Party, the spokeswomen forgot to mention the tens of millions of Chinese killed by the Communist Party formed under the leadership of Mao Zedong, not to mention millions across the world infected by the Wuhan Coronavirus let loose on the world thanks to Beijing’s deceitful cover-up. Mao’s collectivization of farming alone killed 45 million Chinese between 1958 to 1962. Millions of Chinese are still imprisoned in forced labor camps in Xi Jinping’s China.
Following the footsteps of Marxist genocidal maniac Mao, Xi Jinping is building a personality cult around himself. Christian and Buddhist places of worship are being turning into alters for worshiping the Chinese leader.
The Communist Party has been telling Chinese Christians, estimated to be around 60 million, to renounce their faith and replace it with Xi’s Communism-derived doctrine. Chinese media showed Communist functionaries entering Christian homes and replacing Christian symbols with portraits of Xi.
The New York Post in January reported the Communist onslaught on Christianity in China: “Catholic churches torn down or denuded of their crosses and statues. Images of the Madonna and Child replaced with pictures of “People’s Leader” Xi Jinping. (…) The Ten Commandments painted over with quotes from Xi.”
The party hasn’t spared the ancient Chinese religion of Buddhism either. “Buddhist temples are being turned into shrines celebrating Xi Jinping, China’s President For Life,” the NY Post article added.
The campaign in the Mainland has been accompanied with the suppression of civil liberties in Hong Kong, a territory which enjoyed democracy and civil liberties under the British rule until 1997. Beijing took control of the region with promises of upholding Hong Kong’s constitutional freedoms as part of the “one country, two systems” principle. China reneged on those promises made to the Hong Kong residents, enacting the so-called National Security Law this year aimed at setting up a pro-Beijing security apparatus and crushing the democratic dissent by applying Mainland laws.

So what Winnie! It would also make Yellowstone visitable again and reduce the litter there. I promise not to visit China.
Well, I’m elated.
Me too! Over here we call those same people “progressives”. “adding that country’s Communist Party “made a huge contribution to the advancement of mankind.” Made it to the DNC/MSM did you?
Look, China is big on rating people for reputation, America is now giving CCP members a reputation score of a big Zero.
If we catch a CCP member traveling under a false identity, they should immediately be added to an organ bank, and being worthless those organs should be free.
Xi’s daughter is currently studying in the US. I assume she and her fellow CCP college students would be SOL.
john lewis can no longer accuse us of spitting on him.
so hes gone, one more to go this month hopefully.
The Communist Chinese are drug pushers and people traffickers.
If the media reported on sex trafficking cases the way they do for COVID, we could destroy these DC/Hollywood pedo networks in a week
Absolutely. Ban the 90 odd million members of the Ruling Chinese Communist Party.
That makes a nice and easy contrast with the remaining 1.3 billion odd Chinese what are not part of the Ruling system.
Let the PRC explain what the difference between the two groups are and why it exists.
China has already given us the Wuhan Virus–thank you not so much.
We don’t need to admit the Chinese political virus that is the Chicomm Party.
WE already have one active Communist Party (the Dems) on our shore, we surely don’t need another.
China has poisoned our houses with Chinese drywall, our pets with Chinese pet food, and our children with lead painted toys.
Remind me again why they have the MFN trade status.
Now, how about a ban on Chinese-made prescription and over-the-counter medicines?
First, either we or our allies must have suitable manufacturing in place.
Beijing has called the US “pathetic” and “ridiculous” amid such reports.
Huh? Whatever happened to their old standby insults, “paper tigers” and “running dogs”? I sorta miss those.

I can’t see this move doing much to stop the spying that China does in the US. Any of their spies are unlikely to be identified as CCP agents.
When my daughter toured China during the Olympics, she traveled on a US Air Force passport. She said the officials treated her very well and sent her right through customs and immigration. They told her that “Spies and smugglers would never travel to China on a US military passport.”
Similarly, I don’t think Chinese spies and smugglers would travel to the US under a passport or identity that is connected with the CCP.
Right, they will be a diplomat, who cannot be arrested, but who could have an accident.
It’s not intended to stop spying. So it doesn’t matter that it won’t do that.
F**k off, Xi.
Hopefully, we’re getting our house in order within our borders, and purging the ChiComm poison from our schools and media – and within our government.
There are lot of traitors who have been put in place in 8 years of obama.
About damn time!
This is a feel good story, but it looks like more of Trump’s BS. He won’t do this.
Why don’t you give us a list of all the other things you said Trump wouldn’t do.
I’d like to see it happen. Not only does it send a clear signal to every Chinese dissident, but you’ll automatically see the Dems defend genocidal Communists. Again.
Ban the CCP and anyone who works for any company or venture funded by them, or that finances them.
The right move. Do it Mr. President.
Good. It’s about time that we affront these dreadful people. They do not wish us other than harm.
Cry harder, China. Worst neighbors on the entire GD planet.
Why were we letting Chinese Communists in to the country in the first place?
Oh, yeah, that’s right, Richard Nixon normalized our relations with them.
Everybody else turned against Nixon because of Watergate. I turned against him when I saw him sipping champagne with Mao and Chou En-Lai. I knew it was bad back then 50 years ago, and I was right, and the rest of you were dead wrong.
I’m confused. Weren’t we already doing this? Isn’t one of the questions on a visa application “Have you ever been a member of the Nazi Party or the Communist Party”? It’s been years since I saw a form with that question on it, but I don’t remember a footnote saying “(other than the Chinese one)”.
They’re enraged? So, it worked, then?
Looks like that one hit a nerve. One wonders why so sensitive…
