CUNY Law Professor Pushes China’s Version Of Government, De Blasio Threatens Churches

Is it any surprise that Democrats are taking China’s side? First, they want to dunk on Orange Man Bad. That’s how deranged they are, that they would promote authoritarian China. Second, Democrats are authoritarians at heart. Here’s Surya Deva, an associate professor at City University’s School of Law (Hong Kong), who specialises in the area of business and human rights.

With coronavirus crisis, China sees a chance to export its model of governance

However, we should not miss the evolution of China’s newest export: the Chinese model of governance (and political ideas underpinning it) as an alternative to the Western liberal model. This export is strategic because mere economic might will not suffice to sustain China’s superpower status.

Rather, as the West has in the past, China would also need to influence social, political and cultural landscapes in other countries in its quest for dominance.<

China’s governance model is built on concentration of power by a small group of leaders, making all state institutions
subservient to the Communist Party, prioritising economic development over human rights, using law as a tool to suppress civil liberties, treating religious or linguistic diversity as a threat to national unity, using media as a tool for government propaganda, and invoking national sovereignty as a shield to ward off any criticism of the government’s human rights record.

Didn’t they have a long period of protests and riots in Hong Kong, mostly about the authoritarian mode of Chinese government? Deva is not condemning, in fact, noting “China’s model offers efficiency, because unlike in democracies, there is no cost of dissent”

There are several reasons why some countries are finding the Chinese governance model attractive. First, this model has proved to deliver fast economic growth. China has lifted over 800 million people out of poverty and become the world’s second-largest economy.

Second, the Chinese model offers efficiency, because unlike in democracies, there is no cost of dissent. Nor does one have to worry about following tedious processes to accomplish an agreed outcome.

Third, the Chinese model offers more political and social stability in that it avoids uncertainties linked to periodic democratic elections and political transitions. It also keeps both civil society and the media in check.

Sounds pretty good to American politicians, eh? De Blasio must approve

(Hot Air) Mayor Bill de Blasio still hasn’t shut down the public parks in New York City, despite multiple complaints from the health officials. But he’s threatening to shut down some other facilities. Those would be the churches and synagogues who continue to hold services during the ban on gatherings of more than ten people. And if they continue to tend to their flocks in this fashion, he’s warning religious leaders that he may shutter the houses of worship “permanently.”

Interesting view, Bill.

    Coronavirus in China kept me under quarantine. I felt safer there than back in the U.S.
    Our laissez-faire attitude, prioritization of personal freedom and utter lack of government leadership have left Americans confused and exposed.

    When my family returned to the United States after six weeks of quarantine in Shanghai, our friends and relatives responded with congratulations and relief that we were finally safe. Less than a week since arriving back home, however, we don’t quite share our loved ones’ sentiments. We felt safer in Shanghai as conditions improved than we do in the U.S.
    Our anxiety was triggered as soon as we stepped on American soil. In China, airport medical checks happened before we were allowed into areas with other passengers. At Chicago O’Hare International Airport, we waited in line with hundreds of other passengers at border security before finally being identified as having just returned from China. At that point, we were escorted to the side by an apologetic young man in a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention jacket who checked our temperatures and gave us a packet informing us that, as individuals traveling from China, the CDC requested we isolate ourselves as much as possible for 14 days. Airport staff never even asked where we were going.

    I’ve now lived through a coronavirus quarantine in the two countries, and the differences are stark well beyond their airports. In China, the obligation to isolate felt shared and the public changed their habits almost immediately. Sterilization, cleanliness and social distancing were prioritized by everyone at all times. Rightly or wrongly, the Chinese state’s heavy-handed approach seemed to work.

    In contrast, individual liberty is the engine that drives American exceptionalism. There are certainly valid questions about how much of it to sacrifice in the name of the public good, but our laissez-faire attitude, prioritization of personal freedom and utter lack of government leadership have left Americans confused and exposed.

    The left love them some authoritarianism.

      That’s how we Make America Great Again.. Throw out the America haters.

        Kye feels that anyone who criticizes the US should be thrown out of the country.

        And he says he’s not an authoritarian … he’s a great authoritarian.

          As long as they vote Demo.

        • Kye says:

          Excuse me Elwood but exactly where did I state that “anyone who criticizes the US should be thrown out of the country”? Where? I just want THEM thrown the fuk out. They said ” We felt safer in Shanghai as conditions improved than we do in the U.S. Our anxiety was triggered as soon as we stepped on American soil.” I didn’t say that, THEY did! Send the ungrateful bastards back to Shanghai and help make America great again by cleaning out the garbage!

          You lie in typical leftist fashion. You take a kernel of truth OUT OF CONTEXT and make it a political position, and naturally a radical position because anyone who disagrees with you is a vile evil raaaaacist.

          I can’t be an authoritarian because I’m not a leftist like Hitler or Stalin or you. Have you decided yet how many Americans you’re willing to let die so Trump loses the election? How many, huh?

          Trump 2020 Send the bastards to wherever they feel safe and wanted.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            How many Americans will you let die in defense of trump?

            Thousands of Americans will die because people like you voted for an incompetent asshole.

            trump is destroying America.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            You’re being coy kye. We know what you meant, you’ve expressed that sentiment many times.

            I told you that a vote for trump was a vote to destroy America. You’re seeing now what your vote wrought.

  3. formwiz says:

    How many Americans will you let die in defense of trump?

    Nobody has to defend him. He’s the only one that’s done right.

    Your boy, Don Cuomo screwed up. So did Whitmer, Sisolak, Pritzker, Wolf, Newsom, and on and on.

    But, at 2500 dead, we are not going to have the Plague you’ve been praying for. No 100,000 dead, not even close.

    So spare us the faux compassion.

    Thousands of Americans will die because people like you voted for an incompetent asshole.

    No, that’s the Mocha Messiah, who couldn’t even replenish the masks from the bid flu.

    trump is destroying America.

    No, he’s saved it. That’s what you can’t stand. That’s why you hate him.

    We know what you meant, you’ve expressed that sentiment many times.

    No, you assumed again. And when you assume you make an ass of u in front of me.

    I told you that a vote for trump was a vote to destroy America. You’re seeing now what your vote wrought.

    We’re still here. Flu cases are being effectively treated. At least near term, all the people your engineered panic has thrown out of work will get a hand.

    I know, you wanted them to starve, to come begging to the Left for help and all they’ll get is Demo governors trying to out-virtue signal each other; one say May, the next says June.

    Guess what happens when the bills come in and the kids have to eat? All that wrath gets directed at the petty tyrants who are getting off on keeping people at home.

    And Trump will say, “OK, time for everybody to get back to work”.

    And he wins. No hundreds of thousands dead. 100% success rate with chloroquine, as he suggested.

    He’s the hero.

    You’re the zero.

    CUNY Law Professor Pushes China’s Version Of Government, De Blasio Threatens Churches

    CUNY is the City University of New York. Dr. Deva is at the City University Hong Kong.

    Teach is lying to his hapless readers once again. Anyway, read the article for yourself – it is not a favorable view of the Chinese system.

    The professor also mentions the protests in Hong Kong.

    Here’s the FOX take on Mayor DeBlasio warming churches and synagogues.

      Hate to tell you, hotshot, but that’s the way it was headlined all over the Interwebz.

      Teach is lying to his hapless readers once again.

      No, you are. As always. Teach’s intro”

      Here’s Surya Deva, an associate professor at City University’s School of Law (Hong Kong), who specialises in the area of business and human rights.

      Typical Commie.

      DeBlowhard screwed up from the start and this is just one more. Y’know the Demos will need the votes of all those bitter clingers if they want to win the Fall.

      Of course, you’re too bigoted to see that.

      I’d say all you have is hate, but that’s not true.

      You also have ignorance.

  5. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    This week the State Department has facilitated the transportation of nearly 17.8 tons of donated medical supplies to the Chinese people, including masks, gowns, gauze, respirators, and other vital materials. These donations are a testament to the generosity of the American people.
