In an age when America’s billionaire class has wedded the country to Communist China, Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) has called upon Americans to stop buying from the oppressive country.
Speaking with “The Cats Roundtable” on WABC 770 AM-N.Y., Scott differentiated between the Chinese people and the Chinese government. “We should stop buying anything from communist China. They are not our friend. The people are wonderful. The government is despicable,” he said, as reported by Newsmax.
“The government of China, communist China, what they want to do is they want to dominate the world,” he added.
Scott recalled the Cold War with the Soviet Union and how Americans “never thought about buying anything from the Soviet Union.”
Scott then listed China’s litany of human rights abuses, from its organ-harvesting practices, to its suppression of religion, to its encroachment on the sovereignty of Hong Kong.
“They don’t believe in your rights. If you look at how they treat their own citizens, how do you think they think about Americans? They put a million people in prison [by] their religion,” he said. “They involuntarily harvest your organs if you’re in prison. They took away the basic rights of Hong Kong citizens. They built their military to defeat the U.S. military. They’re threatening Taiwan right now. So, the way we can beat them is we have got to stop doing business with them — stop.”
Scott also noted that the more the United States continues to grow the Chinese economy, the weaker America’s will get, allowing China to become a world superpower unlike any other.
“We cannot continue to help them build their economy, because as their economy grows and gets bigger than ours, we will never be able to beat or defend if they want to invade Taiwan, or wherever they want to go,” he said. “They are an expansionary country…China, they want to control every country all over the world.”
Rick Scott’s denunciation of China follows recent news reports speculating about the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic.
