Educating the Enemy

Do Americans know about this “true American commitment” to educate communists on how to make nooses from our own rope to hang us with?

Do we have a responsibility to shell out some $8 billion per year in taxpayer money to educate over 60,000 communist Chinese students in American universities? That is, the very students who return to China to take jobs, factories and even entire industries away from American workers?

Apparently so, according to the U.S. State Department division that panders to wannabe Chinese students.

In a 2005 speech given by Donald Bishop, attached to the U.S. Embassy in Beijing, China, Bishop eagerly told prospective students how to game the American educational system for an essentially free education at taxpayer expense. He told them how to secure student visas, which programs to apply for, and how to get additional money to maintain themselves while in the United States.

Each year, over 20,000 new communist Chinese students join the other 40,000 students already present at American universities. Eighty-two percent (almost 50,000) of these are graduate students in mathematics, sciences and engineering. Those students who get Teaching or Research Assistant jobs find that tuitions are further reduced, in some cases to zero. Such opportunities are not available to undergrads.
