Mayor Patrick Payton of Midland Texas defends Bob Fu, an Agent of the Chinese Communist Party, and Defames Miles Guo

Author: Quentin G    Contributor: Magnum 44 Reviewer:Ivy

The pro-democracy protesters from the Whistleblower Movement led by Mr. Miles Guo have been demonstrating since September 2020 against the injustices committed by Bob Fu, an alleged spy of the Chinese Communist Party. On October 5th and 15th of 2020, Mayor Patrick Payton of Midland Texas held press conferences in response to the peaceful protests against Bob Fu and his organization, China Aid. Mayor Payton accuses the lawful demonstrators of being “communist agitators” who “[were] bought and paid for” by “Miles Kwok […] in his commitment to the regime of Xi.” He also characterizes the protestors as “people who make threats, literally terrorist threats against our citizen”.

However, Mayor Payton’s brazen statements from his press conferences are lies aiming to defame Mr. Miles Guo and the Whistleblower Movement.

As a protester by the pseudonym of Little Prince has called out in his viral Twitter video, Mayor Payton is a “corrupt, shameful, disgraceful, dishonest liar”. Little Prince has pointed out in his passionate and brave speech that such false allegations were frequently made in the past against Mr. Miles Guo, an exiled billionaire fighting for the freedom of the Chinese people. In fact, one of the liars is Baosheng Guo, another so-called pro-democracy activist similar to Bob Fu. In 2019, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia ruled that Baosheng Guo has defamed Mr. Miles Guo by accusing him of:

ha[ving] a close relationship with the Chinese Spy agency (MSS);

be[ing] suspected of serious crimes – working with Chinese hackers to persecute exiled human rights activists in the United States.

The District Court jury found for Miles Guo, the plaintiff, and decided that Baosheng Guo has committed fraud. $24 000 was awarded to Mr. Miles Guo for defamation. The verdict form can be found on GNews.

Mayor Patrick Payton’s false statements have misled the local media and the people of Midland Texas. His accusations are already proven to be false in the case against Baosheng Guo who had made the same allegations against Mr. Miles Guo. It is highly questionable for an elected official holding a public office to make such unfounded inflammatory statements against peaceful protesters. When asked by the protesters about his sources or to engage in a public dialogue, Mayor Payton has repeatedly cowered away from explaining his allegations against Mr. Miles Guo and the Whistleblower Movement.

What interest does Mayor Patrick Payton have in defending Bob Fu, an alleged CCP spy? Why would Mayor Patrick Payton risk his reputation by launching obviously false accusations that are already proven to be untruthful in the US court? Further investigation of Mayor Patrick Payton’s financial ties to Bob Fu could reveal the real reason behind his travesty of justice.
