While intelligence specialists are calling for the Biden administration to take a strong stand against the Chinese regime because of the threat it poses, the Democrat’s government would be considering Iger as ambassador. Iger has long benefited from large deals with China.
A Bloomberg news agency report revealed on December 2nd that Iger would consider accepting a position in Biden’s administration after donating some $250,000 to Biden’s Victory Fund during the election campaign.
“Giving back in some way, serving our country in some way, is certainly something I would seriously consider,” Iger, 69, said in an interview on Bloomberg TV.
The executive provided his resignation as CEO of the world’s largest entertainment company in February. He is currently the CEO of Disney, and must leave the company entirely in December of next year.
The news that Iger is a strong candidate to take over the U.S. embassy in China comes just when Disney has generated great criticism for its relationship with the Asian regime.
Disney has long sought to appease the Communist Party of China for market access as evidenced by the opening of Shanghai Disneyland in June 2016.
It should be remembered that Mulan’s recent film has segments filmed in Xinjiang where the Chinese Communist Party has imprisoned more than one million Uyghurs -the persecuted Muslim minority in China- and has carried out a campaign of forced sterilization of Uyghur women.
The Chinese Communist Party has banned foreign journalists, human rights organizations and foreign government officials from entering the region; however, Disney employees were granted special access.
In addition, the film’s credits are grateful to Chinese Communist Party entities, including the party’s propaganda commission in Xinjiang, as well as a branch of the Xinjiang public security office.
The latter entity has a role in the operation of the concentration camps, while the propaganda commission has justified the operation of the camps.
As China advanced its intentions to infiltrate the United States, the entertainment company invested millions of dollars in theme parks and film production in that country,
In October 2019, Iger refused to take a stand on the pro-democracy protests that were then sweeping Hong Kong and in which hundreds of protesters and autonomy advocates were arrested.
“Taking a position [on the protests] that could damage our company in any way would be a big mistake,” Iger told The Wall Street Journal’s Tech Live conference at the time, placing Disney’s business interests above values.
Complacent tone with China?
During his administration, the Trump administration has succeeded in aligning the world with the enemies of the West, but there is an eventual threat that when Joe Biden assumes the presidency, the tone will diminish and with it, countries like China will advance their objectives and destabilize the United States.
Recently John Ratcliffe, director of National Intelligence, pointed out that China “is the greatest threat this country has faced since World War II.” He assures that the Asian regime has used blackmail, bribery and covert influence to “attack” members of Congress and ensure that they pass laws in their favor in the United States.
Joseph Humire, a hemispheric security analyst and director of the Center for the Study of a Free and Secure Society, warned El American about the possibility that the United States will allow China to advance as Barack Obama did.
“The government of Barack Obama, of which Biden was vice president, was very soft on China, making the Asian country the influential country it is today,” he said.
“China, which is the number two power in the world, is the one that wants to make sure that the United States no longer exists in order to occupy that number one position and change the international system in its favor. China is advancing in all aspects, in politics,the economy and in the military field,” he said.
