With the protests in Hong Kong claiming scalps across the globe, this seems like a good time to remind you. The University of New Hampshire is still running what the CIA calls a Chinese foreign influence operation.
According to the CIA, the Chinese Communist Government is using Confucius Institutes at American Universities as foreign influence operations in the United States.
It seems of particular interest given the current political climate.
The University of New Hampshire has had theirs since 2010. But according to the US intelligence community, these arrangements may “provide ‘strings-attached’ funding to academic institutions and think tanks to deter research that casts (China) in a negative light,”
For nearly ten years, the Chinese Government has been providing funding to UNH in exchange for favorable coverage of the Chinese experiment, also known as totalitarian communism. To “reward pro-China viewpoints and coerce Western academic publications and conferences to self-censor.”
Legislation signed last year required detailed reporting, or the college would risk losing other federal grants. The UNH Confucious Institute is still operating and promoting events.
Actually, they still do.
