America Is Becoming Italy
Italy became the first major Covid-19 casualty outside of China because Italy has seen a major influx of Chinese nationals in recent years -- many from Wuhan where the virus originated. Some went back to Wuhan for the New Year celebration and brought the disease with them when they returned to Italy. Well-known Italian writer Giacomino Nicolazzo penned a starkly honest piece about China's infiltration into Italian society and how Italian Communist leaders conspired with the Communist Chinese to bring this about. The same thing has been happening in America for decades.
In 2014, Italian Communist Party leader Matteo Renzi was elected as Italy's prime minister. Nicolazzo writes that Renzi threw the country into economic turmoil with increased taxes while raiding public pension funds. At the same time, Chinese Communists began buying up real estate and businesses in Northern Italy:
Now the reason I mention Renzi and the Chinese together is that strange things were also going on between the governments of Italy and China. A blind eye was being turned to the way the Chinese were buying businesses in the financial, telecommunication, industrial and fashion sectors of Italy’s economy, all of which take place in Milano…
…When the dust settled, China owned more than 300 companies…representing 27% of the major Italian corporations. The Bank of China now owns five major banks in Italy…all of which had been secretly (and illegally) propped up by Renzi using pilfered pension funds! Soon after, the China Milano Equity Exchange was opened and much of Italy’s wealth was being funneled back to the Chinese mainland. Chinese state entities own Italy’s major telecommunication corporation (Telecom) as well as its major utilities (ENI and ENEL)…
China also now owns Pirelli Tires, Ferretti yachts, and a controlling interest in Fiat-Chrysler, the Prysmian Group (multinational supplier of telecom cables and equipment) and Terna (Italy's electric grid). Nicolazzo continues:
Quite literally, tens of thousands of Chinese came in through Milano (illegally) and went back out carrying money, technology and corporate secrets. Thousands more were allowed to enter and disappeared into shadows of Milano and other manufacturing cities of Lombardy, only to surface in illegal sewing shops, producing knock-off designer clothes and slapping ‘Made In Italy’ labels on them…
…The Far-Left politicians sold out and betrayed the Italian people with open border policies and social justice programs…
America IS Italy
Does not all this sound familiar? Open borders and social justice? The same thing is happening in the U.S. and has been for decades under the radar, thanks largely to former president Bill Clinton with some help from both Bush's, and members of Congress from both political parties.. Today the Communist Chinese manufacture most of our drugs, much of our high tech electronics and chips -- some of which is purchased by our military -- and practically everything else on the shelves at Walmart and other stores. We didn't just erect factories in China to get cheap (slave) labor to make our products. We gave China the technology -- including dual-use products -- built the factories, provided the assembly line know-how, the markets, the distribution networks, the marketing methods and the customer base. And we gave them the money to do it with! And then they proceeded to rip us off with knockoffs of all our great products.
Until President Trump our "free trade" agreements with China have been free in only one direction -- to the U.S. -- with China erecting trade barriers of all descriptions to keep American products out. I call it "Open Borders" trade, not free market.
Meanwhile, China has set up birth tourism businesses that see thousands of Chinese anchor babies born in the U.S. each year. Furthermore, every year, we take in more legal immigrants from China than anywhere else in the world except Mexico. In the past four years alone, a quarter million Chinese have immigrated to the U.S. from Communist China, and this has been going on for decades.
About half of all the legal immigration to the U.S. every year comes from the countries listed in the above table. The other nations listed are also instructive, especially Cuba. Chinese and Cubans are only allowed to leave their country because the governments of China and Cuba allow them to. Why would they do that? They are using them for very specific subversive purposes.
China has essentially installed an underground army in place, and so has Cuba -- fifth columns ready at any moment to spy and protest, conduct acts of sabotage or as tour guides for our enemies. Many work in our labs, our industries and our universities for the express purpose of spying, stealing technology and recruiting Americans to their cause. The new Cuban immigrants are not the old anti-Castro boat people types either. No, in fact their job is to dilute the very conservative Miami Cuban community with pro-Castro Cubans. And it's working.
The Chinese are practicing a form of what we used to call "Russification." In the Soviet days, Russia would send thousands of its citizens to repopulate countries in Eastern Europe. The purpose was to change the cultural complexion of the target country. When natives protested the harsh Soviet rule, the presence of many Russians would give the Soviets the pretext to roll in the tanks or threaten to do so to "protect" the Russian immigrant population. In the meantime, the Russian immigrants infiltrated government and institutions and began flexing their political muscle. The same thing is happening with the Chinese, and for that matter, many other ethnic, racial and political groups in the U.S. Illegal aliens have their own army of lobbyists.
In the conclusion to his article, Nicolazzo writes:
…The point I am trying to make here is that not only did the Chinese bring the virus to Italy (and the rest of the world) it was far-Left politics and policies that facilitated it. This should hopefully be a warning to Americans that while they work to rid themselves of the China Virus, they should just as vehemently endeavor to rid their government of any politician that circumvents the Constitution and ignores the laws of the land…plain and simple.
