The Heritage investigation found that the Boston chapter teamed up with the Chinese consulate general in New York to offer Chinese nationals to renew passports – picking up praise from Chinese state media – and has sponsored the Chinese flag flying over Boston’s City Hall to honor the Chinese Revolution.
It also cites an essay by one of the CPA’s co-founders, in which they called for a “revolutionary strategy” to achieve a “fundamentally different society.” The report also found that the CPA picked up praise recently again from Chinese state media for taking part in Black Lives Matter protests in San Francisco.
“Communist China has put its vast propaganda apparatus to work in support of the mayhem that has wreaked havoc in American cities this year,” Heritage Foundation’s Mike Gonzalez writes in the report. “China is, after all, a rival of the United States, and would see weakening of U.S. society and the country in general as advantageous.”
“The involvement of an outfit as closely associated with the Chinese government in the funding of one of Garza’s ventures is something else entirely, however,” he says.
