Quote: Wang Wenbin on the US’s brazen misuse of the word ‘democracy’

For too long the US has been using democracy as a cover to flagrantly engage in infiltration and subversion in sovereign countries, impose economic sanctions, cause turmoil and chaos, and wage wars of occupation, bringing disaster to the affected countries and the international community.

The so-called ‘Summit for Democracy’ will not turn Washington into a democratic high ground. It will only expose further the true face of the US as a manipulator and saboteur of democracy in front of the whole world.

  1. Good, I’m glad to see China fight back. Now just step up the pressure, and stop referring to the U.S. /oligarchy/ or /plutocracy/ as a “democracy”. Just like they attempt to deny China of that title and brand China (incorrectly) as “authoritarian” and “undemocratic”, China should shift its rhetoric from recognizing the U.S. as a “democracy” and instead call it for what it is: an “oligarchy” or “plutocracy”. I think “plutocracy” is a good way to go (rule by the rich).

    And you can highlight it by pointing out how the rich are treated in a privileged manner by the U.S. court system, how they get away with numerous crimes, how they pass legislation to enrich themselves, on top of how they continuously engage in foreign wars in which they sacrifice the lives of poor Americans and people all around the world only to enrich themselves further.

    This is something that many American people already recognize, amplifying this message would be great.

    Let’s also not forget that the U.S. still has legal slavery for all incardinated people. And how the U.S. (in)justice system fills prisons with poor people so it can enslave them.

    Good luck Comrades! Hasta siempre!

  2. Also, highlighting the difference in the demographic composition of the U.S. legislature (Congress) vs. the Chinese legislature (the NPC & CPPCC) would bring the point home. Show off how many billionaires and millionaires are in the U.S. Congress in contrast with how the Chinese legislature is drawn from a wide array of the population, including large segments of the working classes.

    America is the Roman Republic with all its decadence; these are the final death throes.
