Fox News host Sean Hannity used his opening monologue Friday to compare the left in the U.S. to Communist China.
China “is a shining, real-world example of the left’s ideology in practice — authoritarianism, we call it,” he said. “If Bernie Sanders had his way, this is what the [United States] eventually would look like. This is why we are so adamantly opposed to censorship, cancel culture, boycotts, all the things we discuss often.”
“There is no freedom in China,” he explained. “There[‘s] no freedom of religion, no freedom of speech, no freedom of thought, no freedom at all. You can be thrown in jail for using the wrong words, believing the wrong things or sharing the wrong links online. Censorship — that rules the day.”
He singled out Jekk Zucker of CNN and Mark Zuckerburg of Facebook as censoring opinions they don’t like, similar to how China deals with dissension.
He’s not wrong–although the left has not yet been able to become as authoritarian as China, there’s no question that they want to, aspire to do just that.
