We applaud Athenai Institute’s effort to push for nation-wide State legislatures on banning The Confucius Institute in the United States of America. The Confucius Institutes funded by the Chinese government and carrying the CCP agenda have no place on American college campuses. They teach the Chinese Communist Party’s warped version of Chinese history, whitewash the CCP regime’s abuses of human rights, and present a unilaterally positive view of modern-day China under the CCP one-party dictatorship. Staffed by teachers selected, paid, and flown over by the CCP, they do this dirty business while trading on the reputations of American universities by damaging their academic freedom. It is high time the US should wake up before it is too late.
