(FiveNation.com)- Neil Bush, who is the son of former President George H.W. Bush, reportedly co-sponsored an event with an organization controlled by the Chinese Communist Party. Bush, who is the chairman of the George H.W. Bush Foundation for U.S.-China Relations, just hosted an online event titled “50 Years of US-China Exchange in Retrospect” in coordination with the Center for China and Globalization.
Well, that doesn’t sound nefarious…
If you’ve never heard of the Center for China and Globalization (CCG), it pretty much does what it says – the organization is a pivotal one within the Chinese Communist Party’s United Front Work Department, which is a foreign influence operation designed to convince Western countries to work with China and to allow its expansionist behavior.
The United States government has already recognized that the United Front Work Department is working to “co-opt and neutralize sources of potential opposition to the policies and authority of its ruling Chinese Communist Party” – so it’s curious that a member of the Bush family is so willing to work with the CCG.
During the recent online event, Neil Bush worked to downplay the relevance or importance of the origins of the COVID-19 virus, and completely dismissed the idea that it may have been developed in – or leaked from – the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s laboratory.
“Whether it originated in a lab or from a bat or from the United States or wherever – who cares?” he asked.
Who cares? The entire world, maybe?
And why did he say “United States”? There is zero evidence this virus came from the United States.
Just one more reason to write off the Bush family…
