US-Led Western Propaganda War on China

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org - Home - Stephen Lendman)

China's growing political, economic, industrial, technological, and military prominence on the world stage made it Washington's public enemy No. one.

It's unrelated to any foreign threats to the US and West, just invented ones to maintain a perpetual US-led state of war on humanity by hot and other means.

US discretionary income goes mainly for destructive purposes, along with benefitting privileged interests over the public welfare.

US-led Western media are a collective propaganda machine, a lying machine on major domestic and geopolitical issues.

They're hostile toward virtually all nations independent of US control — notably China, Russia, and Iran.

China tops the list. Heading toward becoming the world's leading economy, bipartisan US hardliners and their Western counterparts consider the country their main threat.

According to NYT propaganda, President Xi Jinping aims to "tak(e) over the international institutions, like the World Health Organization and the United Nations (sic)," adding:

China seeks to "take over…the global order (sic). (T)he West appears to be losing the moral high ground."

Beijing hopes to (gain) the confidence of the world. It will then firmly have the advantage" over the West.

"It's hard to remain sanguine at such a prospect. The world needs balance (and) indispensable (US) leadership (sic)."

The world needs peace, stability, and mutual cooperation among nations — how China, Russia, Iran, and other nations free from US control operate.

Washington's rage to transform them into client states represents an unparalleled threat to humanity.

Instead of explaining it, the self-styled newspaper of record supports what demands denunciation.

The neocon/CIA-connected Washington Post called for ending what it called "China's united front operations" in the US (sic), adding:

Beijing aims "to interfere in our politics and society without our realizing it (sic)."

WaPo noted the newly released GOP RSC national security strategy, calling for escalated US war by other means on China, Russia, and Iran — an agenda that risks turning a new Cold War into something hot.

According to the RSC and WaPo, Chinese nationals in the US represent a 5th column threat, falsely claiming Beijing is waging "political warfare" on the US.

WaPo: China's so-called "united front (is) meant to harm us without us noticing. The time has come to call it out and then take action to shut it down (sic)."

WaPo stopped short of calling for hot war on China — maybe in a follow-up commentary.

CNN, the most widely distrusted name in US television propaganda pretending to be news, falsely accused China of "flex(ing) it military muscle amid the coronavirus pandemic (sic)."

The problem with its Big Lie and countless others like it is that its dwindling viewer audience believes them, along with knowing nothing about US aggression in multiple theaters because CNN and other establishment media suppress information about it.

London's Guardian is as hostile toward truth-telling journalism the way it should be as its US establishment media counterparts.

Accusing China of COVID-19 "disinformation" with no proof backing its claim, the broadsheet falsely accused its authorities of spreading "false facts about the (outbreaks) inside the European Union (sic)," adding:

"Russia and China (are) running targeted influence operations and disinformation campaigns in" Europe and globally (sic), citing the European Commission.

No supportive evidence was presented because there is none in contrast to plenty showing Trump regime and congressional indifference toward public health and welfare.

It's why an unprecedented US main street economic and public health crisis festers.

Serving privileged interests exclusively, the US and European nations are white supremacist societies — protests continuing against institutionalized racism, inequality and injustice.

US COVID-19 outbreaks are increasing as states end lockdowns and public anger draws large numbers in US streets.

Over a dozen US states reported new highs in coronavirus cases and hospitalizations.

While US officials and establishment media bash China, Russia, Iran, and other nations on its target list for regime change, US public health professor Joe Gerard warned of "worse times…ahead (as) community transmission(s) increas(e)."

Senior scientist at Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security Eric Toner warned of "a new wave (of COVID-19 outbreaks) coming in parts of the" US.

Infectious Diseases Society of America's Daniel Lucey compared the current putbreak trend to a day at the beach, saying:

The US is bracing for another "high tide." At low tide today, "the waves are already coming in."

Despite an unprecedented economic collapse and an unresolved public health crisis at risk of becoming much worse next fall and winter, US policymakers and establishment media wage propaganda war on China, Russia, Iran, and other sovereign states threatening no one.
