As a refresher, what Dunn claimed to admire most about Mao was boiled down to his “unique” approach to governance. “You’re going to make choices…. You’re going to figure out how to do things that have never been done before.”
To be fair, that was certainly true about Mao Zedong. By the time his bloody reign finally ended, it’s estimated that he wound up killing more than 45 million people. Hitler and Stalin were absolute pikers compared to Mao. In that sense, he clearly figured out how to “do things that had never been done before.”
This is one of the people that Joe Biden will be looking to for advice? We’re living in a time when China has been installing spies and thieves in American universities and companies at a breathtaking rate. Our intelligence agencies have been uncovering so many of their undeclared agents that we may need to set up private jets to fly them all out of the country. They’re in the middle of what is turning out to be a fairly efficient case of genocide against the Xinjiang Uighurs and other minorities. They’re also beefing up their naval aviation and warfare capabilities like never before. And don’t even get me started on the Wuhan virus.
Given everything that’s been going on with China, do we really want our Commander in Chief taking cues from a Mao Zedong cheerleader? For Pete’s sake, she was too much even for Barack Obama to tolerate. While he may never have publicly condemned her, let’s face the obvious reality. If Obama didn’t want her to go, he would have quietly told her she didn’t need to resign and that he would protect her. That obviously didn’t happen, and out the door she went.
Evidently she was in high school. I was an idiot at that age as well. Is Mao still one of her favorite philosophers?
