AG Barr Calls the Chinese Communist Party ‘the World’s Most Powerful Violator of Human Rights’
BARR: "CCP's campaign to compel ideological conformity does not stop at China's borders. Rather, the CCP seeks to extend its influence around the world, including on American soil. All too often, for the sake of short-term profits, American companies have succumbed to that influence, even at the expense of freedom and openness in United States. Sadly, examples of American business bowing to China are legion. Take Hollywood. Hollywood's actors, producers and directors pride themselves on celebrating freedom and the human spirit. And every year at the Academy Awards, Americans are lectured about how this country falls short of Hollywood’s ideals of social justice. But Hollywood now regularly censors its own movies to appease the Chinese Communist Party, the world’s most powerful violator of human rights. This censorship infects not only the versions of movies that are released in China, but also many of them shown in the United States theaters to American audiences."
