A new red scare is reshaping Washington
The widening DC animus to China is fertile ground for an anti-China group co-founded by Steve Bannon & Frank Gaffney. The China issue is becoming a magnet for ethnonationalists. Gaffney has stoked paranoia over Muslims in the US. By .
Use of the term Red Scare is ridiculous. The Chinese Communist Party regularly discusses its plans to destroy the Western liberal order.
