The Existential Threat To America Is China Not Russia And Trump Gets It

Many conservative comedians and commentators love to walk up to ignorant, American social justice warriors on campus and video tape them railing against a supposed Trump policy that was really Barack Obama’s. Their ignorance, however, is really not that funny; it’s sad.

I have an idea for a similar stunt. Let’s video tape an SJW’s response to the description of an adversary that has stolen America’s weapons designs and hijacked other strategic technologies, run up a half-trillion a year in trade advantage, militarized one of the most important sea lanes in the world, and sent at least 40,000 spies into the United States. Oh, and by the way, per many metrics this nation’s economy is set to soon pass the GDP of the USA, due to all this theft. Let’s also say this nation is one of the most repressive in the world, and oh, let’s call them Communist, because they are. And to top it all off, their military is rapidly growing from a near-pear status to a dominant force in hypersonic weapons and other existential threats to the United States.

This military is robustly opening bases around the world in a bid to end American power-projection capability, supported by this nation’s burgeoning economy. To make the video funny, let’s call this country — yep, you guessed it — Russia. I bet 95 percent of our “golden youth” would fall for the prank.

Of course, this nation is not Russia; it is China.

Russia cannot match the U.S. economically, a majority of its military is still antiquated, and its economy is barely growing. Moscow does get involved in its “near abroad” militarily, but the Kremlin is not threatening the existence of America as a world power. China is.
