Chen Guangcheng, a blind Chinese dissident, endorsed President Trump for reelection and condemned the Chinese Communist Party during the third night of the Republican National Convention.
“Standing up to tyranny is not easy. I know,” Chen said in praising President Trump’s hardline stance on Beijing. “When I spoke out against China’s one-child policy and other injustices, I was persecuted, beaten, and put under house arrest by the government.”
“The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is an enemy of humanity. It is terrorizing its own people and it is threatening the well-being of the world,” he added.
Chen was a human rights activist in China who advocated for the rights of the working class and women.
As reported by Fox News, Chen filed a class-action lawsuit in 2005 against the CCP for enforcing the one-child policy allegedly through forced late-term abortions and sterilizations.
WIBC host Tony Katz reacted to Chen’s speech on his morning show Thursday.
“Don’t ever tell me that bravery is on the athletic field in comparison to this and in today’s society. That is a remarkable speech and remarkable bravery to call Beijing out and say the Chinese Communist Party is an enemy of humanity, it’s terrorizing its own people, and it’s threatening the well-being of the world. That’s absolutely positively true.
“For me, that was the highlight of the evening. That’s how you put China on notice: you tell the truth about them.”
