Far Right Congressman Scott Perry Says Leftists "Gotta Be Quaking in Fear", Denounces "Globalization" During CPAC Interview

During an interview at this year's Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), far right Congressman Scott Perry spread conspiracy theories about a "Marxist" takeover of the United States, denounced "globalization", and issued threats to the left. 

A retired Pennsylvania Army National Guard Brigadier General, Perry was elected in November 2021 as chairman of the far right House Freedom Caucus. He is also a member of the Congressional Veterans Caucus and the Second Amendment Caucus. 

"Their [the Democrats'] goal is actually the globalization of the United States of America, destruction of our sovereignty and so this is all intentional ... This is all by design ... We're not only in a philosophical battle, but we're also in a spiritual battle for the soul of our country, and to save this Republic," Perry said.

He then ranted about a supposed takeover of the US by "Marxists":

"These leftists, these Marxists that have prevailed upon the American people and used the awesome power of the federal government to cower us into fear in our homes, they gotta be put on notice, they gotta be quaking in fear ..."



Perry also warned that he would use his own power to punish federal agencies if civil servants or Biden appointees refuse to show up at congressional hearings staged by Republican committees: 

"If they are not interested in showing up, we can say I‘m in charge now of the transportation committee of federal leases. Isn‘t that something?" he said. "I wonder whose leases might be coming up – we are taking a look at the list ... when they go from a big building to that small space on the square, that will be awesome, won‘t it?"

Congressman Ralph Norman of South Carolina, who was interviewed alongside Perry, quoted "General Kellogg" (probably Keith Kellogg) and said that Joint Chiefs of Staff chair Mark Milley is "a traitor" who "should have been fired long ago".

On October 30, 2020, and again on January 8, 2021, Milley called his Chinese counterpart to assure him that Trump would not start a war with China. 

Norman lied about the Biden administration, accusing it of undermining democracy, and he spread culture war talking points regarding children's education: "What's happened in the last two years ... is evil," he said. "It's an attack on our democracy, it's an attack on our children, and it's an attack - pure and simple - on freedom." 

In his closing remarks, he added: "our children are not safe ... what's happening to them in the education system is evil."

While Norman baselessly accused Biden of undermining democracy, he himself was engaged in an actual attempt to overthrow US democracy and install Trump as dictator.

On 17 January 2021, 11 days after the violent Capitol insurrection, Norman wrote a text message to Trump's chief of staff Mark Meadows, urging him to advise the then-President to invoke martial law, only three days before Biden's inauguration: 

"Mark, in seeing what’s happening so quickly, and reading about the Dominion law suits attempting to stop any meaningful investigation we are at a point of no return in saving our Republic !! Our LAST HOPE is invoking Marshall Law!! PLEASE URGE TO PRESIDENT TO DO SO!!", Norman wrote.

On August 8, 2022, Norman issued a statement calling the FBI search at Trump's resort in Mar-a-Lago a "total abuse of political power" and "Deep State malfeasance."

Living in Taiwan: Seven Reasons Why It's Good to Be Here

Chinese New Year can be a pretty boring time for a foreigner. All of my friends were celebrating with their families, and since I have no family here, nor have I a girlfriend whose family I could join, I had nothing special to do. Shops and cafes were closed - apart from big chains like McDonald's or Starbucks, which were overcrowded anyway. So I had a lot of time to think. On Saturday evening I went out to buy my dinner. While I was walking around, I heard the voices of the people inside their homes, the sounds of their New Year celebrations. Then I suddenly asked myself: "What on earth are you doing here? Why are you still in Taiwan?"  Before I came to Taiwan, some Taiwanese friends of mine had recommended me their country, highly prasing it and going so far as to say that Taiwan is a "paradise for foreigners" (bear in mind that when I say foreigners I mean 'Westerners').  "It's easy for foreigners to find a job," t

Is China's MINISO Copying Japan's MUJI, UNIQLO and Daiso?

Over the past few years Japanese retailers such as UNIQLO and MUJI have conquered foreign markets, opening shops in cities such as Paris, Berlin or New York and becoming household names in several countries. But the success of their business model seems to have inspired people with dubious intentions. As the website Daliulian recently showed, a new chain called MINISO, which claims to be a Japanese company selling ‘100% Japanese products’, seems to be nothing more than a knock-off of UNIQLO, MUJI and Daiso, copying their logos, names and even the layout of their stores. The company’s webpage proudly announces – in terrible English – that “ MINISO is a fast fashion designer brand of Japan. Headquartered in Tokyo Japan, Japanese young designer Miyake Jyunya is founder as well as the chief designer of MINISO, a pioneer in global 'Fashion & Casual Superior Products' field. ” According to the company’s homepage, MINISO advocates the philosophy of a simple,

Macau: Gambling, Corruption, Prostitution, and Fake Worlds

As I mentioned in my previous post , Macau has different faces and identities: there is the old Macau, full of colonial buildings and in which the pace of life seems to resemble a relaxed Mediterranean town rather than a bustling, hectic Chinese city, such as Hong Kong or Shanghai. On the other hand, there is the Macau of gambling, of gigantic hotel and casino resorts, and of prostitution. These two Macaus seem to be spatially separated from each other, with an intact colonial city centre and nice outskirts with small alleys on the one side, and bombastic, modern buildings on the other.  The Galaxy - one of the huge casino and hotel resorts The Importance of Gambling for Macau's Economy Dubbed the 'Monte Carlo of the East', Macau has often been portrayed as the gambling capital of China. Media reporting on Macau tend present pictures of the city's glistening, apparently luxurious skyline. But a visit in Macau suffices to realize that it is fa

Trip to Tainan

Tainan Train Station Last weekend I made a one day trip to the Southern Taiwanese city of Tainan (Chinese: 臺南, pinyin: Táinán), the former capital and one of the most important centres of culture, history and architecture of the island. This blog post is also intended as a special thank to Grace, a Taiwanese friend who was so kind to show me around, and very patient, too. Since Tainan doesn't have an extensive public transport net, Grace picked me up at the train station with her motorcycle, a vehicle that, along with cars, is regarded by locals as indispensable for living comfortably in Tainan. To my great embarrassment, though, I had to admit that I cannot ride a motorcycle. That's why we had to take busses to move around. It was the first time she ever took a bus in Tainan. And now I know why: busses come more or less every half an hour, and service stops early in the evening. No wonder Tainanese snob public transport. Grace had no idea about the routes and about whe
