Minghui.org on November 12th, 2020By Minghui reporter Ying Wang On November 10, 2020, U.S. Secretary of State Mr. Pompeo delivered a speech at the Ronald Reagan Institute.
In his speech, he called the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) as “Marxist-Leninist Monster”, the top threat of the free world. He hopes to help Chinese people to tear down the firewall so that Chinese people can choose their own future in the absence of CCP influence.
In his speech, Mr. Pompoe stated, “He (Former President Reagan) understood that no other nation, under God, was conceived in liberty quite like the one that we are. His deep, innate understanding of America as an exceptional place in the world gave him the strength to face down the Soviet scourge.”
“We have many threats today that remain”, he said, “But I am equally confident that America will overcome any challenge, from Communist China to the terrorist regime in Tehran.”
He expressed that major progresses have been made by the Trump Administration, such as the destruction of the ISIS caliphate and restored substantial deterrence. “Those pillars of strength and candor are also the foundation for America’s policy towards the world’s number-one threat to freedom today : the Chinese Communist Party.”
He stated, “We showed what it (CCP) is. It is authoritarian; it is brutish and is antithetical to human dignity and freedom.”
He emphasized that America will no longer appease the CCP, “And it also means no more illegal claims in the South China Sea, no more coercion and co-optation of American businesses, no more consulates used as dens of spies, no more stealing of intellectual property, and no more ignoring fundamental human rights violations. And the party’s atrocities in Xinjiang, Tibet, and elsewhere will not be tolerated.”
Mr. Pompoe said, “This challenge requires not only diplomatic effort but military strength to keep the peace. So this administration has made historic investments to enhance our armed forces and to focus their efforts and bolster our primacy in the region.”
Since Mr. Pompoe became the Secretary of State of America, he has been reminding his international friends and partners about the CCP’s nature and its intentions. “I’ve told them that the West is winning. I’ve reminded them that we will prevail .”
“The good news is that the free world and sovereign nations are beginning to wake up. They are now rallying to this cause. I’ll often hear, we don’t want to pick between the United States and China. I remind them that that’s not the fight. The fight is between authoritarianism, barbarism on one side and freedom on the other.”
“And so we’ve begun to strengthen the institutions that can achieve this objective. From the Quad, to ASEAN, to NATO, we’ve woken them up to the threat posed by this Marxist-Leninist monster.”
He said, “The fact, the urgency of this matter is now accepted all across the political spectrum, and it shows that the Trump administration has succeeded in making this important shift for American national security and indeed for the freedoms of all humanity.”
He emphasized that the Chinese Communist Party is “the central challenge that this administration would face, and we believe the central challenge America will face in the years ahead.”
“And so we put together all the apparatus, all the institutions. At the State Department, we have fundamentally re-shifted how we think about the world. My ambassadors, no matter where they are in the world, have China at the top of their list. So if you’re an ambassador in the Democratic Republic of Congo or in South Korea or in Oman, you know that the Chinese Communist Party’s intent on impacting that country, and we are determined to make sure that we use our capacity to push back against that challenge.”
He said, ” In the end, the people of China will ultimately be determinative just as the people of the Soviet Union were ultimately determi （明慧编译）
