After most Americans joined in pointing to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) as responsible for the CCP Virus pandemic, former Obama Ambassador Max Baucus speaks out against his country and in defense of the CCP.
In the last two weeks, Baucus has given four interviews to pro-communist media comparing the United States with Nazi Germany and pointing to Republicans and Democrats of accusing the CCP of gaining electoral advantages, among other criticisms of his country, according to the Global Times on May 14.
In a recent poll conducted by Morning Consult, 73 percent of American adults blame the CCP for the deaths caused by the virus.
The director of the Center for Asian Studies at the Heritage Foundation, Walter Lohman, referred to Baucus’s statements as inappropriate. A former ambassador should not speak ill of his own government on a foreign propaganda outlet.
“It’s like going to China and … talking about your own government that way in meetings. I think that would be pretty inappropriate,” Lohman said.
Baucus also criticized U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who raised the possibility that the CCP Virus originated in a laboratory in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China.
It is striking that along with Baucus’s rhetoric in favor of the CCP, his business with companies that depend on the CCP, including the technology giant Alibaba Group, is flourishing.
The Baucus Group also advises U.S. companies doing business in China and Chinese companies doing business in the United States.
Baucus’s statements were promoted by the propaganda media of the CCP, to try and clean up its appearance, obscured by all the controversy during the spread of the CCP virus that has caused disasters around the world.
Baucus, 78, was appointed U.S. ambassador to China by former President Barack Obama in 2014, after serving as a senator for the state of Montana for 36 years. He was removed from office in 2017.
The CCP now faces claims of irregularities as to the origin and spread of the CCP Virus.
Among other scandals, the German magazine Der Spiegel reported that the CCP leader Xi Jinping, asked Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director of the World Health Organization (WHO), in January to postpone the warning about the threat and danger posed by the CCP Virus, preventing countries from preparing to avoid the many deaths and economic losses now being recorded.
At least 116 countries are calling for an independent investigation into the origin and initial management of the pandemic.
