Newt Gingrich: Drifting Toward a Catastrophic American Defeat

The United States is drifting toward a catastrophic defeat. I am talking about a defeat that will eliminate our freedom and permanently subordinate America to Communist China and its demands for absolute control and obedience. You may think this vision is alarmist, but look at the Chinese Communist Party's control of Hong Kong, its abuses in Tibet and the Uyghur genocide in Xinjiang. For that matter, look at the giant, wealthy American companies that already kowtow to the Chinese Communist Party's demands and adjust their language and behaviors to placate Beijing.

After pressure from China, Disney removed an episode of "The Simpsons" from its streaming services in Hong Kong over a reference to the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre. Nike and Coca-Cola lobbied against legislation to ban imports of goods made with forced labor in China. JPMorgan Chase has expanded its business in China—despite known, serious data security and national security risks. And remember the turmoil when Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey tweeted out his support for democracy in Hong Kong? The NBA and various players went into a tailspin of shameless apology and censorship on China's behalf. It was disgusting.
