Chinese Communist State Media Chief Threatens to Host AntiFa, BLM Leaders


The European Bureau Chief of China’s state-run outlet China Daily proposed Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leaders invite AntiFa – the far-left militant group responsible for nationwide rioting and violence – for a meeting in Beijing or U.S.-based Chinese officials meeting with the group in Washington, D.C.

The comments come from perennial Trump critic Chen Weihua, also a Stanford journalism and George Soros-funded World Press Institute fellow, who serves as a mouthpiece for the CCP. Not just because he constantly peddles the regime’s propaganda but because China Daily is owned and operated by the CCP’s own Publicity Department.

Peaceful protests over the death of George Floyd, in some instances, have been co-opted by AntiFa and quickly devolved into violence. The group’s well-documented aggressive tactics predate 2020, prompting President Trump to declare he’d designate the group a terrorist organization. International by nature, AntiFa is well-organized and on the radar of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for its violent track record and seeking to procure weapons from designated Islamic terrorist groups including ISIS and Al Qaeda. AntiFa is known as a left-wing anarchist group, but many members also flirt with communism, the prevailing and deadly ideology of the CCP.

And Chinese state media outlets – including Chen’s – are reveling in the chaos the group has inflicted.

Chen proposed the idea in response to a picture he alleges shows a “U.S. Diplomat in Hong Kong” who was “caught meeting HK protest leaders,” in line with the narrative frequently peddled by Chinese State Media and the CCP itself to delegitimize the demands of Hong Kongers fighting for freedom.

The suggested act is not only at odds with President Trump’s clear disavowal of the group but it’s also legitimizing a violent soon-to-be terrorist organization.

While AntiFa would ostensibly reject the CCP’s racism and abysmal human rights, the group is in lockstep with the regime on one issue: they’re intent on precipitating the fall of the U.S.
