These two quotes tell the story pretty eloquently.
First, we have director Judd Apatow’s deadly-honest comment about the companies that – like major sports – profit enormously from China:
“A lot of these giant corporate entities have business with countries around the world, Saudi Arabia or China, and they’re just not going to criticize them and they’re not going to let their shows criticize them or they’re not going to air documentaries that go deep into truthful areas because they make so much money.
“Instead of us doing business with China and that leading to China becoming more free, what has happened is a place like China has bought our silence with their money. They have just completely shut down critical content about human-rights abuses in China.”
And then we have Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) and 14 other Republican senators reaming Disney for working with the Chinese government on its film, “Mulan”
According to Alex Ward’s article at vox.com:
Some viewers who paid to stream the movie on Disney+ last weekend found something troubling in the credits: Disney thanked eight government bodies in Xinjiang, a western province in China where around 2 million Uighur Muslims have been forced into concentration camps by the Chinese government. It turns out parts of Mulan were filmed in Xinjiang two years ago, well after the world knew about Beijing’s plan to “reeducate” Uighurs with Communist Party doctrine.
This prompted Senator Hawley to write:
“Disney’s whitewashing of the ongoing Uighur genocide is contrary to all of your company’s supposed principles.
“Your decision to uncritically approve this film’s release rather than apologizing to those harmed by Disney’s actions is reprehensible. Your decision to put profit over principle, to not just ignore the CCP’s genocide and other atrocities but to aid and abet them, is an affront to American values.”
A quick note to end this blog: which presidential candidate has been a backer/advocate for China for decades, and which presidential candidate has no problem imposing severe sanctions on China….
…therefore which presidential candidate is far preferred by the communist slavemasters there?
The difference is pretty stark. You should know which is which.
I’m not going to tell you either. Find out for yourself.
