Chinese immigrants who fled Chinese tyranny and came to this great country are increasingly worried that the Democrat Party is turning toward the murderous and oppressive Chinese communist model.
As Daniel Allott writes at the Washington Examiner, some Chinese immigrants are speaking out in fear after the Democrats mad a sharp left turn in the last decade.
Chinese-born Saga Zhou, for instance, escaped China in 2009, but now she sees the Democrat Party aiming to make the same disastrous mistakes as the Red Chinese.
“One such policy was the Left’s support for late-term abortion,” Allott wrote. “When she lived in China, Zhou, like many young Chinese, didn’t consider abortion to be a big deal. But her view changed after moving to America, getting married, and bearing two children.”
“After I became a mother, my understanding about life fundamentally changed,” she told me when we met at a Panera Bread in Irvine. “Now I am totally a mother.”
Zhou said her heart broke upon learning about a Virginia bill to loosen restrictions on late-term abortions. Appearing on a radio show as the bill was being debated, Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam pledged to sign the legislation, even suggesting it would sanction infanticide
“Oh, when I saw the news, I cannot even open [the article],” Zhou told Allott. “It was really hard. I just felt something really strong into my chest. And then I said, ‘Let me adopt him, don’t kill him.’
“Somebody has to understand the roots, where these policies come from. That’s why I’m so pissed. Damn socialism. Why are you chasing me?” Zhou added.
Allott interviewed several other Chinese immigrants. One, George Li, said Socialism “is a great, great concern to [Chinese-Americans], which is why I’m really motivated to stop that. It’s our duty.”
Another, Benjamin Yu, said he thinks more Chinese immigrants are turning away from the Democrat Party and joining the GOP because of the liberal party’s drift to Red Chinese ideals.
“I just want America to be America, not another Soviet Union, Cuba, or China,” Li added.
