Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has partnered with Chinese Communist Party-linked “education” programs since 2019, according to an annual report.
The report from the Chinese communist-run Confucius Institute U.S. Center (CIUSC) credited both Bowser’s office and D.C. public schools as partners of the organization.
From The National Pulse:
The programs, bankrolled by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), masquerade as language learning initiatives, but are on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) radar for intellectual property theft and espionage.
“We do share concerns about the Confucius Institutes. We’ve been watching that development for a while,” FBI director Christopher Wray told a Senate hearing in 2018.
The National Pulse revealed earlier in July how Confucius centers push Chinese communist propaganda on American students by pushing the use of Chinese government-written textbooks, even leading to Chinese military parades being broadcast in elementary schools.
