‘You’re Either Standing for Freedom, or You’re With Freedom’s Enemies, You Have to Choose’: Gaffney
In this special episode, we sat down with Frank Gaffney, executive chairman at the Center for Security Policy. He’s one of the authors of the report titled “The CCP is at War with America.” He sheds light on the origins of the pandemic, how the Chinese regime is conducting something called unrestricted warfare that covers all sectors of society, and what that means for our daily lives.
Gaffney said, “We know, however this virus got out of that laboratory, whether it was by accident or by design, the Chinese Communist Party deliberately, knowingly, and murderously unleashed it on the rest of the world, including our own country.”
And marking Gorbachev’s recent passing, Gaffney recalled his own days working in the Reagan administration. He noted: “In 1980, Ronald Reagan sought the mandate of the American people to roll back and defeat the totalitarian communist threat of that time, what he used to call an existential threat to freedom, that Mikhail Gorbachev presided over the demise of. So it reminds us, I think, in our moment, when we’re dealing with, frankly, in the Chinese Communist Party, a vastly more dangerous threat than the Soviet Union was in its heyday. We need to have a similar mandate, given to elected officials to take steps to counter, to roll back, to defeat the Chinese Communist Party because they are at war with us.”
He added the Chinese regime has “induced greedy American leaders of business and the financial sector or our political class or others, to participate in building up the Chinese Communist Party’s power. And they are certainly saying, ‘Hey, wait, you know, we don’t want to disengage. We don’t want to uncouple. This is a really good thing. We’re doing very well.’ Well, they personally may be, but our country is being imperiled by it, as is the rest of the world.
“So I think I would say to people who make that argument: you are either with us and standing for freedom, or you are with freedom’s enemies. You have to choose. And this is the time for making that choice,” he added.
