China unleashed the coronavirus on the world.
This crippled nations as economic activity ground to a halt.
Now the U.S. military received this warning about China that put jaws on the floor.
Florida Republican Congressman Michael Walz served as a National Guardsman.
Congressman Walz tweeted out a video warning that the American military was actually funding the Chinese military through contributions to pension plans that invested in Chinese companies that built military hardware.
Walz demanded an end to this practice.
In the video Congressman Walz stated:
Every month, me included as a National Guardsman, we contribute to this 401K-style plan. Well guess what? Billions of dollars from it are going over to Beijing and funding Chinese shipbuilding, plane building and all types of companies. Many of which are close to the Chinese Communist Party, some of which are even on the U.S. sanctions lists…
…We cannot have the American military who’s out on the frontlines retirement account funding their biggest adversary in the 21st Century. America, we need to wake up. We are in a Cold War with China, they are certainly in one with us. And we would be no more funding their industry through our retirement than we would the Soviet Union and companies in Russia years ago. We need to think about this differently and this has got to stop.
There is much talk in America about how to make China pay for the catastrophe it set loose on the world.
Hitting China financially is one way to make Beijing pay for the lies and cover-ups that allowed the virus to spread from China to over 180 nations across the globe.
China is a hostile foreign power that sought to displace the United States even before the coronavirus.
The U.S. military divesting from companies that support the Chinese military seems like an easy call.
