Only the Chinese are capable of such wanton duplicity!
The Obama administration on Thursday announced its retaliation for Russian efforts to interfere with the US presidential election, ordering sweeping new sanctions that included the expulsion of 35 Russians.
US intelligence services believe Russia ordered cyber-attacks on the Democratic National Committee (DNC), Hillary Clinton’s campaign and other political organizations, in an attempt to influence the election in favor of the Republican candidate, Donald Trump.
In a statement issued two weeks after the president said he would respond to cyber-attacks by Moscow “at a time and place of our choosing”, Obama said Americans should “be alarmed by Russia’s actions” and pledged further action.

China hasn't done anything to US diplomats anywhere close to what the US has done to Russian diplomats.
What you're starting to see here is the deep state gaslighting normie conservatives on China the same way they have gaslighted normie leftists on Russia. This is a logical consequence of neocon policies against Russia that have pushed them to forge a strong alliance with China.
So what you're you're going to see now is the Uniparty establishment working together against Trump to block his America First noninterventionist U-turn. Elizabeth Warren, AOC and Liz fuckin Cheney are on the same page now.
Foreigners get detained over trumped up charges in China all the time especially in times of poor geopolitical relations, suspecting them of being spies whether its true or not. While diplomats don't get detained very often in China, businessmen and even English teachers get the book thrown at them quite frequently. Whenever China gets into a dispute with another country or territory, the expatriates from the said nationality suddenly face a hard time living in China, and then the China operations of companies owned by nationals of the said country get destroyed. Happened with Lotte in 2017, happened with various Japanese businesses in 2012. Happening right now with Cathay Pacific Airways and the NBA. There's a reason why pretty much all of Hong Kong, whether its the elites or the commoners, are spooked by the Extradition Bill.
From what I know, there has been no state-sponsored xenophobia directed towards regular Russian people living or visiting the US. For example, I don't see restaurants serving Russian cuisine in the US getting boycotted, or vandalized by brick-throwing mobs. I don't see people on the streets hurling abuse at Russian speakers, which in many cities are the most common European language being spoken on the streets.
Also, can't we acknowledge that while the US Deep State has foolishly backed Russia into a corner since Yeltsin's Second Term, while the CCP is neither a friend of the Globohomo establishment nor the Western people?
The CCP has no interest whatsoever in seeing a strong, wealthy, no-nonsense, optimistic West that vouches for indigenous Westerners' interests. A strong nationalist West is likely an even bigger threat to China than Globohomo. Remember, during the Century of Humiliation, the West as a whole were fairly nationalist, even the British Empire. The Chinese do not have a concept of the Globohomo and the Deep State. What you consider the Deep State, the CCP sees as White Supremacism.
If the CCP is so great and Globohomo is so bad, why don't you get the hell out of Canada and move to China like some of the veteran forum members have done? Its one thing to defend the CCP because you have a better life in China than the West, but its another to defend the CCP from the comforts of your home in Globohomo Canada while having never lived there.
