    Mom ‘Regrets’ Adopting Girls From Communist China Because Trump Is More Authoritarian

    On election day in the United States, an American mother took to the pages of Marie Claire to share why “Trump’s America” makes her “regret” adopting from China.


    “I worry that we made a tragic mistake,” Lisa Milbrand wrote of her decision to adopt two daughters from China, adding: “I pulled those two beautiful babies away from a rising power and into a damaged democracy. I brought two girls of color into a society where it’s clear that their word and their bodies are worth less than a man’s—and where open, overt racism has become even more likely now than it was a decade ago. And unfortunately, my worries aren’t exactly tinfoil-hat-wearing paranoia.”


    Worse than anything happening under China’s communist regime, Milbrand claims, is that her daughters “may lose the right to control what happens to their bodies.” To quell those concerns, she’s “thinking of stockpiling Plan B pills, just in case my daughters’ right to choose what happens to their bodies disappears.”


    Meanwhile over in China, people have much bigger problems than stockpiling Plan B. For example, an infamous episode of the Netflix show “Black Mirror” is coming to life, as the country rolls out “the most massive population surveillance system in the world.”
    “Freelance journalist James O’Malley recently posted a creepy video from a bullet train from Beijing to Shanghai,” wrote Helen Raleigh in The Federalist recently. In that video, a voice can be heard over the train’s PA system cautioning everyone aboard: “Dear passengers: people who travel without a ticket, or behave disorderly or smoke in public area will be punished according to regulations. And their behavior will be recorded in individual credit information system. To avoid negative record of personal credit, please follow the relevant regulations.”


    Raleigh explains what’s going on: “If you never heard of the social credit system referenced in the video, welcome to China, where the government seems to have found the perfect tool to keep 1.4 billion people behaving as it wishes. It watches them 24/7 through a data-driven social credit system, something straight out of George Orwell’s fictional ‘1984’ and much more intrusive and destructive than what was depicted in the ‘Black Mirror’ episode.”

    continued:

    "unfortunately, my worries aren’t exactly tinfoil-hat-wearing paranoia."

    REALLY? ....all evidence is to the contrary....

    Not just one child but two, and here in America there are no children for this woman to adopt, or is she more concerned with her talking point adoptions.

    oh good grief and am sick to death of these whining asswholes.
    Sarah Sanders doesn't often mop the White House Press Corp Floor...but when she does, she uses Jim Acosta.

    There is no American free press. They're bought and paid for.

    “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.”

    The Devil whispered in Trumps ear and said,
    "you're not strong enough to withstand the storm".
    President Trump whispered back,"I am The Storm"!

    A few ago it was all the rage for celebrities to adopt African children and carry them around like the latest Armani shoulder bag. Now I guess its Chinese children.

    Its really becoming quite obvious we need to remove these people from the United States or at the least strip them of citizenship and the rights belonging thereof, and by those people I mean any democrat! These are profoundly disturbed human beings who have no right, let alone any business voting in any elections, state, local, or federal... They are extraordinarily dangerous and its becoming clear this is a war insisted upon by mother earth herself, in an attempt to provoke us(humans)to ditch these so very disastrously inferior humans from the gene pool altogether....

    Liar. The tinfoil clearly shines through the loose-knit pink yarn of her @#$%^-hat.

    This British-T-Word is very obviously ignorant of China's culture. And if she doesn't stuff her daughters' heads full of victimology crap, they'll do just fine in the US.

    Modern journalism is all about deciding which facts the public shouldn't know because they might reflect badly on Democrats. - Jim Treacher

    If worse comes to worse if they can't be software engineers they can always open a nail salon or an Oriental restaurant.

    Appears there's a wide opening for a, "Virtue Signalers' Hall of Fame." This woman is a high contender for First Prize.
    I've only had two beers in dog years.


    When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead.
    It is difficult only for the others.
    It is the same when you are stupid.

    You, whether inadvertently or not, nailed it! Well done.
