He says Trump isn’t authoritarian—and calls out wokeness as authoritarianism akin to Mao’s Cultural Revolution. The host is visibly upset. pic.twitter.com/UctRu0Fpeq
Ai Weiwei is a well-known Chinese dissident. Weiwei grew up in Northwest China after his father was exiled by the Communist Chinese.
Weiwei is an artist, and outspoken activist against the Chinese Communist Regime.
He currently resides in Portugal, after he moved from China to England just a few years back. He recently appeared on a PBS show called ‘Firing Lane’.
Weiwei was asked if he believed that Donald Trump was an authoritarian… His response was much deeper than the biased liberal reporter could have ever imagined.
You have to a system is supporting you, you cannot just be an authoritarian by yourself
As we remember during the Trump administration, no part of the administration was sided with Trump. Before he left office, nearly 90% of his own staff quit.
Trump did not even have enough people to answer the phones.
Meanwhile, our intelligence agencies constantly contradicted his orders, even ignoring them in some cases. As we now know, our intelligence agencies used a fake DNC-sponsored dossier to spy on Trump’s campaign.
Weiwei rightly points out that a dictator is merely the face of a broad, overarching system of tyranny. It would be impossible for one man to be a dictator, as the Left insinuated with Trump.
Weiwei goes on..
In many ways, you are already in the authoritarian state… you just don’t know it
Fake competition, big corporations. A big rigged financial system that only seems to make the rich richer, and the poor more destitute.
In many ways, our country has become a dictatorship. Forced injections, mandates, and authoritarian police tactics have never been more prevalent.
Trump is not the dictator. Biden clearly is.
