Ingraham added that while several of those situations exist, President Biden’s administration is explicitly focused on alleged White supremacy in America as the greatest threat to the homeland – and the president himself has taken a much more congenial tone toward the Chinese Communist Party than his predecessor, Donald J. Trump.
She played a clip of Senate President Pro-Tempore Patrick Leahy of Vermont asking whether Attorney General Merrick Garland believed White supremacy is the “most lethal threat” to the U.S. in 2021 – to which Biden’s chief law enforcement official answered in the general affirmative.
“The biggest threat facing our democracy and way of life is the Chinese Communist Party,” Ingraham said in response.
“Under Biden we find ourselves trying to play catch up with the CCP or blocking them in their efforts to expand their power across the globe,” she said.
“It now has the largest number of active military personnel in the world with 2.1 million compared to our 1.4 million. By 2024 it is poised to have the biggest economy in the world – which has our elites licking their chops. The CCP basically owns big business in America.”
She made her case by pointing first to a reported “secret $ 275 billion deal” struck in 2016 between the CCP and Apple CEO Tim Cook.
“Now we know why Cook became such a CCP apologist, and how Apple recently became the top-selling smartphone in China,” she said, reading aloud a news report on the reported deal.
She added that Cook via Apple lobbied to water-down provisions of an anti-Chinese-slave-labor bill in Congress earlier this year, that would have restricted U.S. corporations from using slave labor of the oppressed Muslim Uighur minority in China’s westernmost Xinjiang province.
Another “collaborator” Ingraham pointed was billionaire investor Ray Dalio. The financier appeared on CNBC to remark that China is essentially an “autocratic system [while] the United States is a country of individuals.”
