Survivor of Mao's China warns America is falling for the same tricks: 'We got slavery'

As Chinese president and communist dictator Xi Jinping steps out in San Francisco to meet with Biden, Glenn Beck is getting to know one of his detractors.

A survivor of Mao’s cultural revolution, Xi Van Fleet is warning Americans about what’s waiting in the not-so-distant future for them.

Van Fleet grew up in communist China and lived through the horrors of the cultural revolution. As a young school girl, she was forced into the countryside along with other school-aged children for re-education.

Once out of high school, she escaped communism and came to America.

30 years later, she sees the same signs in America that she saw as a child in China.

Van Fleet notes that identity politics, cancel culture, weaponization of young people, and indoctrination in schools all happened in China.

While China used class to divide people into enemies of the state and allies of the state, America uses gender and sexuality.

“It looks like it’s different, but it’s the same. This indoctrination of children — it’s exactly the same,” Van Fleet tells Glenn.

Van Fleet explains that the “four olds” show just how close America is to reaching their fate. In China, this term meant eradicating the old cultures, old ideas, old habits, and old customs.

This included destroying statues and changing names of streets, stores, food labels, and institutions to all be politically correct.

“They want to replace the tradition with something new. And in China that is Maoism, and here is Maoism with American characteristics,” she explains, adding, “and then a lot of people fall for it and that is the problem with Marxism. It gives you a beautiful picture.”

“We fell for it in China too,” she continues. “We got slavery.”
