Confucius Institutes, part of a propaganda program underwritten by China’s communist government, are now found in many K-12 classrooms across America, resulting in young students being instilled with a pro-China worldview.
The New American has previously reported on the presence of China-sponsored Confucius Institutes on college campuses and on the fact that only 30 percent of U.S. universities to host these programs have disclosed the funding they have received from Beijing, which in some cases has approached $250,000 in one year.
The FBI and Justice Department have stated that Confucius Institutes are replete with Chinese state propaganda, intellectual property theft, and “undisclosed ties to Chinese institutions, and conflicted loyalties.”
Thanks to a partnership between Confucius Institutes and the Asia Society, “more than 100 elementary, middle, and high schools located in 27 states and the District of Columbia” have launched “Confucius Classrooms” since 2009.
According to its website, the Asia Society’s mission is “preparing Asians and Americans for a shared future.” The organization was founded by the late John D. Rockefeller III of the globalist Rockefeller clan and has been praised by former communist Chinese president Hu Jintao.
The Asia Society notes that the Confucius classrooms program has been “established with the support of an Expert Advisory Committee” that includes Communist Party of China officials from the Chinese Embassy in Washington, D.C. and the Chinese Consulate General in New York.
The program is also advised by top officials from Chinese universities such as East China Normal University, Renmin University, and Wuhan University, which have records of cyber-espionage and intellectual property theft.
A number of U.S. government officials also participate in the program, including Jennifer Gibson of the State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, Rebecca Richey of the Department of Education, and Gregg Roberts of the Utah Department of Education.
Two American Confucius Classrooms programs were even honored during the Asia Society’s Confucius Institute World Conference in Shanghai in 2015, as the Asia Society mentions on its website:
The International School of Tucson in Arizona and Pioneer Valley Chinese Immersion Charter School in Massachusetts, both members of Asia Society’s Confucius Classrooms Network, have been named Hanban Confucius Classrooms of the Year for excellence in teaching and learning, curriculum, cultural richness, community engagement, and extracurricular activities.
Additionally, Hanban hosts a yearly Chinese Bridge for American Principals Conference at its headquarters in China. The group noted that the 2019 conference was attended by “172 educational officials and principals from mainstream primary and secondary schools from Washington, D.C and other 28 American states upon invitation.”
The National Pulse revealed that at a Confucius program at a K-6 school in Utah, the instructor had students write letters to Chinese president Xi Jinping and showed them Chinese military parades, causing the children to develop a liking for the communist regime.
A broader Chinese language initiative in Utah has led to Chinese Communist Party (CCP) military parades being shown to children in public schools, with teacher Zheng Yamin declaring: “Behind the language is the culture. When we learn Chinese, we are also learning Chinese culture, Chinese morality and values….
“…On National Day of China last year, the children watched a grand military parade with me,” she added. “They thought President Xi Jinping was cool. Later, when they saw President Xi Jinping delivering the New Year’s speech, they thought President Xi Jinping was very kind.”
It isn’t just propaganda China is pumping into America. Customs and Border Protection officers in Louisville, Kentucky, recently seized 11,000 illegal firearms — valued at nearly $130,000 — that originated from Shenzen, China, and was intended for a residence in Melbourne, Florida.
This comes as the Wall Street Journal has reported on illegal firearms appearing around Black Lives Matter events in Louisville.
Then there’s also the fentanyl China ships to the United States, fueling the opioid crisis that claims nearly 50,000 lives a year.
Yet while China continues to try to subvert America’s safety and sovereignty, the United States has allowed itself to become dependent on the communist state for a number of essential goods, including medicine and its ingredients.
President Trump rightly identified China as one of America’s top geopolitical threats. But so long as the political establishment fights tooth and nail to preserve the status quo, China will continue to rise while the United States declines.
