Top Senate Candidate Praises Communist China

Colorado Senate hopeful John Hickenlooper praised China as a “great nation” deserving of American respect and told voters that the Chinese do not seek global dominance.

The former Democratic governor ignored China’s recent military saber-rattling, crackdowns in Hong Kong, and role in the coronavirus outbreak to laud the regime’s lack of ambition.

“They do not want to rule the world,” Hickenlooper told supporters on a Zoom call on Monday. “They don’t want to dominate. They want to be safe and be respected as one of the great nations of the world, which they are. And we should–I think that’s what we should recognize.”

Hickenlooper’s remarks are at odds with a bipartisan consensus emerging on Capitol Hill, as well as Chinese ruler Xi Jinping’s own rhetoric. Since the coronavirus pandemic’s onset, Democrats and Republicans have targeted China’s malignant behavior and global ambitions, with both parties issuing reports on dangerous Chinese statecraft tools just this week. Xi has explicitly said that he hopes China will be “a global leader in terms of comprehensive national power and international influence” by 2049. Experts assert this amounts to a call for a China-led world order.

Evidently this idiot candidate does not know how to read. Every thing he says that China does not want is exactly what they want. This man should not be in our Congress.

This is UNBELIEVABLE! Has this man going crazy? Is he getting dementia? Does he thinks that the WE THE PEOPLE are so stupid that we cannot see all the lies in his words? Hopefully, his comments would be enough for the people in Colorado to cast “0” vote for him. WAKE UP AMERICA!

I guess Hickenlooper hasn’t read Bully of Asia by Steven Moser. I guess he hasn’t been listening to colleagues on both sides of the aisle. Folks, do not vote for a low information former governor; his lack of knowledge about China makes him a danger to you and to me..
