“Fake news”, I said.
That is my reaction when I heard from my friend for the first time that there’s a breaking news on Chinese websites said Steve Bannon was arrested. Ten minutes later, BBC report the same news, and then CNN, FOX, and then it spread to everyone.
It took them only 21 minutes to do these things from writing to editing to publishing the news after the things happened. How efficient the China’s propaganda system this time is! Does CCP involve it? I have no idea. All I know is CCP is mad with joy now. Because Mr. Bannon is one of the most threatening people to CCP. From now on, The U.S. judicial system will drag Bannon into the quagmire of litigation.
Who is the next one on the CCP’s threatening enemy list? The chilling effect has been created. Just like the ridiculous Hong Kong National Security Law will take down anyone who dare to criticize CCP, they will use every law in every other country to get rid of every one they don’t like. Whether or not you like Steve Bannon, no one is safe now including people who think they are allies of CCP. After all, who can guarantee that your interests will always be consistent with CCP?
