600 US Groups Linked to Chinese Communist Party Behind Election Influence Operation

600 US Groups Linked to Chinese Communist Party Behind Election Influence Operation

(ConservativeInsider.org) – China seeks to become the world’s most powerful nation, and the United States is all that stands in its way. Over the past few years, the East Asian country infiltrated our nation with technology, organizations, and propaganda in hopes of splitting us apart. In fact, Newsweek just identified 600 organizations on our shores that are guided by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

China’s believed goal for its intrusion into American’s daily life was explained by William Evanina, the director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC), in the tweet below. Rather than pushing one candidate, China simply seeks to polarize our nation by “amplifying competing, emotionally-charged viewpoints.”

The Newsweek investigation makes it clear that China didn’t play favorites this year, either.

Spreading disinformation is also in their repertoire, which the NCSC warns about:

China hopes to turn Americans against each other, as this would be the easiest way for it to gain more power. Education about counterintelligence and disinformation tactics is essential in our fight against the Communist country.
