- Secretary of State Pompeo’s speech, reclaiming America’s Voice for Freedom on Jan 11th, 2020.
- The U.S independent new agency Voice of America (VOA) which is paid by the U.S taxpayers, had promoted Chinese government propaganda.
- VOA’s live interview with Miles Guo, the founder of the Whistleblower Movement who is anti-CCP, was cut off halfway in 2017 due to the CCP’s pressure.
- It’s time for VOA to promote democracy, freedom, and American values all across the world.
Secretary of State Pompeo gave a speech at Voice of America, a news agency paid by the American taxpayers. The speech had been broadcasted on TV, radio, on your website, social media, in more than 40 languages, as he mentioned in his words.
Pompeo said the mission of VOA is to promote democracy, freedom, and American values all across the world, and that the VOA is a U.S. taxpayer-funded institution. He claimed that it should not only focus on everything that is wrong with our great nation, but also the Voice of America.
“When the Chinese Communist Party attempted to exploit the tragic death of George Floyd to claim their authoritarian “During the best of times, the People’s Republic of China ruthlessly imposes communism. But amid the most difficult challenge, the United States secures freedom.” He said in his speech.
He continued, “VOA was rubber-stamping J-1 visas for foreign nationals, including some from communist China. We shouldn’t be doing that.”
Looking back a few years ago, VOA cut off a live interview with Miles Guo, the leader of the Whistleblower Movement on April 19, 2017. The Director of the VOA, Amanda Bennett, denied the allegations that Beijing influenced VOA’s decision.
However, in June, Amanda Bennett was dismissed due to the White House’s criticism that the VOA helped the Chinese government spread Chinese propaganda. “VOA too often speaks for America’s adversaries — not its citizens,” the White House website accused.
Pompeo’s speech today verified that there was a strong influence on VOA from the CCP. The situation was “American taxpayers; paying for China’s propaganda, via the U.S. government-funded Voice of America!”
It is time to stop it. The mission of VOA is to promote democracy, freedom, and American values all across the world. It’s time for VOA to speak the real voice of America and reclaim American’s real voice.
