“We will send at least 100 to 200 comrades to your house tomorrow. We will see how much power you have in the U.S,” a Chinese man announced on YouTube September 27th, sending a message to Rev. Bob Fu, an activist and former prisoner of faith in China.  The next day, Fu was hit with alarming news: Chinese thugs were outside his Texas home intimidating his wife and kids.

Fu was in Washington, D.C. preaching at The Return, a globally viewed event for repentance and prayer when he learned of this from his wife. President Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, Rev. Franklin Graham, and many others attended the service. 

Listen to Bob explain to the crowd that his family had just been targeted:

Fu didn’t water down the prayer because of the persecution.  “I especially pray for Xi Jinping’s repentance and the collapse of the CCP. May God grant stamina and courage to those who are imprisoned for the sake of righteousness in China,” he prayed.

Police were able to disperse the thugs, some of which were brandishing signs stating, “Bob Fu started COVID-19.” 

Fu is one of the leading voices in the world for persecuted faith communities in China and is the president of ChinaAid. Fu regularly appears at  Congressional hearings to speak of religious persecution in China and even was invited to the White House in 2008 to brief President George W. Bush. 

Though Fu grew up an atheist, he became a Christian in China. For awhile, he trained communist officials during the day and held secret church services at night.  After the authorities discovered this, he was persecuted in China and was even imprisoned for a time.  He escaped dramatically, with the help of President Clinton, and has been fighting for freedom ever since.

Now, however, his life is in danger in America.

“I want to thank again, from here, those comrades who fight in the frontlines of Canada, Los Angeles, Taiwan, Japan, New Zealand, and Eastern U.S., to kill those evil cheaters,” said the apparent Chinese Communist Party operative in another Youtube clip uploaded on September 27th. In it he calls for the murder of several Chinese dissidents, including Fu, and some leaders who had protested at Tiananmen Square. 

The man behind these threatening videos was no regular communist bully.  He is billionaire Guo Wengui (alias Miles Kwok) who fled from the communist country in 2014 who now spreads false information and incites violence towards various dissidents and human rights activists. He paints himself as a Chinese political dissident, but his lavish lifestyle and violence-instigating behavior suggest something more sinister. 

Watch this video in which he threatens Fu and others:

Guo seems to buy influence.  

BuzzFeed reported conservative news outlet The Free Beacon covered Guo on their digital pages, before it was revealed the writer — Bill Gertz — was secretly being paid by Guo.  Though Gertz was fired from his job there, he now writes for the conservative Washington Times as national security correspondent. He specializes in writing about… China.  Also, check out this Kardashian-like spread about Guo in the New York Post.  Lastly, former head of Breitbart News and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon was arrested aboard Guo’s yacht for allegedly defrauding donors who sought to build a border wall. 

When American journalists, politicians, and companies ignore China’s evils in exchange for the almighty dollar, it facilitates China’s morbid cruelty. It’s ignorant to assume this evil would be confined to Chinese borders. As Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” 

We should never allow threats and violence by a foreign nation on our soil.  Pray for Bob and all others brave souls who are willing to defy the great evil emanating from China.

American federal authorities must protect Bob Fu and hold accountable those who seek to do him harm.
