Douglas MacKinnon, a political advisor and former writer of speeches from former US presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush, criticized the phenomenon of deference to China among prominent figures in Hollywood, sports clubs, businessmen and academics in American society, and the willingness of some personalities to humiliate oneself in order to avoid offending China, as he put it.
In an article in The Hill newspaper, on the influence of China in the United States of America, MacKinnon said that it is clear that these figures are acting in this way in order to keep the flow of Chinese money into their bank accounts, and that China’s iron grip has succeeded in stabilizing Thousands of characters around the world under their gold-plated thumbs.

He pointed out that most of these figures are willing to ignore Beijing’s flagrant violations of human rights in order to keep Chinese money flowing into its pockets, and asked whether Hollywood executives, university presidents, leaders of major sports clubs, and the wealthy of major technology companies will talk about these violations, stressing that The answer is already known, and it is no.
MacKinnon, who also held the position of special assistant for policy and communications at the Pentagon during the last three years of former President George W. Bush’s administration, said that the Chinese civilian and military leadership is acting in accordance with the interests of its nation, because “why bother using your military power when you can subjugate your opponent by economic means?” “.
“Whether some leftists and the main media or American companies, Hollywood and academia want to acknowledge this or not, China is working to win, and victory for the Chinese Communist Party usually means crushing the interests of the United States by all possible means,” he added.
He saw that the United States’ allowing the Chinese system to win in all fields so easily is shocking, and he said, “The leaders of the Chinese Communist Party must suppress their feeling of astonishment because American companies, universities, colleges, Hollywood film studios and sports federations willingly feed with the money of the Chinese Communist Party that flows into her pockets.”
“It is like fattening chickens and livestock until they serve the purpose and are ready to be eaten,” he added.
He pointed out that US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken touched on this reality during an interview with CBS, when he said, “I see that with the passage of time, China believes that it can and must be and remain the dominant country in the world.”
“Imagine the surprise to China’s leaders (while they realize) that in order to achieve global hegemony, instead of launching a third world war, they simply have to give some checks,” McCainon concluded.
