U.S. Rep. Mike Gallagher told convention-goers the Chinese Communist Party is trying to cover up what he says was China’s role in the creation and release of COVID-19, comparing it to their version of Chernobyl.
The Allouez Republican warned the Chinese Communist Party is one of, if not the biggest, threats to the American way of life and freedom. He slammed the CCP for re-writing the Christian Bible because they believe there can be no higher authority than the state run by the communist party. He said their version of certain bible texts portray the Chinese government as the omnipotent power, not God. He added America needs to defend against international communism.
“This is a new cold war, and I hate to tell you, but we are currently losing,” he said.
He said the U.S. is losing that new war because we lost sight of basic American values, we no longer believe we deserve to win and because we no longer believe America is the country of “good guys.”
He also said the 10 tenants of the CCP mirror closely many of the key points taught in critical race theory.
He called the CCP a “cult on steroids.”
“To that, we must all say ‘hell no,’” he added.
He also advised conservatives in elections to think like they’re “already 10 points down” when they start running because Dems have the deck stacked in their favor, referring to large Dem donors and media bias.
