Trump Congratulates China’s Communist Revolution as Chinese Nuclear Missiles Threaten the U.S.


Trump Congratulates China’s Communist Revolution as Chinese Nuclear Missiles Threaten the U.S.

By Julio Severo
No one can imagine U.S. President Donald Trump congratulating Cuba for the anniversary of its communist revolution. After all, this revolution killed about 100,000 people. And even today, the Cuban tyranny persecutes Christians.
If Trump congratulates Cuba, Marco Rubio and all the neocons will blacklist him as a “communist sympathizer.”
So it is impossible for Trump to congratulate Cuba for the anniversary of its communist revolution without being massively attacked, criticized, lambasted, morally lynched, etc.
Yet, what has happened on October 1, 2019 is vastly worse. Trump said on this date:
“Congratulations to President Xi and the Chinese people on the 70th Anniversary of the People’s Republic of China!”
No conservative leader would survive if he dared to make the congratulation that Trump did.
The 70th Anniversary of the People’s Republic of China is the anniversary of the communist revolution that destroyed all freedoms of the Chinese people. It slaughtered millions and millions of Chinese. Even today, it persecutes, imprisons and kills Christians.
Besides, communist China has communist missiles that are a threat to the U.S.
The Chinese communist revolution is vastly worse than the Cuban communist revolution.
If the Cuban communism deserves criticism and condemnation, the Chinese communism deserves much, much more.
Very appropriately, Pat Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) in a report titled Nothing to Celebrate: China's 70 Years of Repression and Murder said,
China's 70th anniversary celebration displayed all the pomp and grandeur befitting a world empire.  But for the countless millions who have suffered under Chinese communism, it was not a happy day.
“The 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China is not something that I think we should feel the least bit congratulatory about,” says Frank Gaffney at the Center for Security Policy. “As I say, I think (the founding of communist China) was a very, very bad day for the world and what’s flowed from it ever since has borne that out.”
As many as 45 million Chinese people died under Mao Zedong’s “Great Leap Forward.” Today China is not only repressive, it is an economic powerhouse, challenging the United States.
And in a brutal crackdown on Christians, China has been bulldozing churches and ripping down crosses.
Reggie Littlejohn, founder and president of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers recounted, “There was one pastor’s wife in Hanan province in 2016 who stood in front of a bulldozer as it was bulldozing a church. She wouldn’t move and she actually got bulldozed. She was killed, buried alive by the Chinese Communist Party.”
Perhaps Trump is thinking in economic terms. It is very easy to criticize Cuban communism because Cuba is poor and has absolutely nothing to offer. But communist China has much to offer.
Even though as a conservative evangelical Christian I would never congratulate China’s communist revolution, who can blame Trump? Previous U.S. presidents, representing the right and the left, gave special economic status to China. For decades the U.S. has enjoyed cheap products produced by U.S. companies in China.
The products are cheap to American consumers, but very costly to Chinese workers who are under virtually slave labor. So when the U.S. politicians complain today that China has taken advantage of the U.S. technology they forget that U.S. companies took advantage of Chinese slave labor for decades.
I do not congratulate the anniversary of China’s communist revolution and I do not congratulate the special economic treatment previous U.S. presidents granted to China. In this spirit, I cannot also congratulate Trump for congratulating the anniversary of China’s communist revolution.
I also do not congratulate Trump for supporting the homosexual agenda.
What all of this shows us? Trump needs prayers. Not to become conservative, but to be saved by Jesus Christ. Being saved is far more important than being right-wing or conservative.
China also needs our prayers. Not to become conservative, but to be saved by Jesus Christ.
Conservatism without salvation in Jesus Christ is just a political convenience or inconvenience. Salvation in Jesus Christ is, by far, the most desirable goal. One of its automatic results is conservatism: commitment to God’s Word and a solid stance against abortion and sodomy in all their forms.
