Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) stated during a Minnesota campaign rally for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders – an admitted socialist who has a history of sympathizing with communists – that she was excited at the prospect of a Sanders’ presidency because he would “fight against Western imperialism.”
So, what is “Western imperialism?”
Generally speaking, when someone talks about “the West” they are referring to the non-communist states in Europe and North America, which have been largely formed by Judeo-Christian values and where capitalism is the dominant economic system in place.
According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, Imperialism is a “state policy, practice, or advocacy of extending power and dominion, especially by direct territorial acquisition or by gaining political and economic control of other areas.”
The encyclopedia adds that the term is “frequently employed in international propaganda to denounce and discredit an opponent’s foreign policy.”
So, in essence, what excites Omar about Sanders is the fact that she believes that he will essentially shrink the United States’ role and influence in the world for the sake of having a “just world.”
Omar’s statement was met with thunderous applause by those who most likely have no idea what her words really mean.
Shrinking the United States’ influence and power in the world will likely only breed conflict as it would allow terrorism and communism to spread, the latter of which is starting to become a serious threat because of China.
China, which is ruled by the Communist Party of China (CPC), is widely considered by U.S. officials and experts to be the greatest threat to America from an economic and military standpoint.
An advocacy group – Stand For America – founded by former United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, labels China as the “Biggest Foreign Threat to America.”
“China engages in hostile trade practices, stealing America’s intellectual property, and manipulating their currency for trading advantages against us,” the group writes. “China is aggressively enlarging its military, taking over islands in Asian waters, and dangerously expanding its industrial reach into all corners of the world. And we must not forget that China is still a Communist dictatorship that is perhaps the world’s single worst human rights violator, taking surveillance and imprisonment of its citizens to truly Orwellian levels.”
