(PatriotWise.com)- An unearthed memorandum of understanding published in 2015 reveals how the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation – the charitable organization set up by Microsoft founder and former CEO Bill Gates – worked with a self-described “socialist” organization that was run by the Chinese Communist Party.
The organization reportedly operated a digital campaign to censor information about the origins of COVID-19 online, and published fraudulent data relating to the global pandemic.
The organization in question, the China Internet Development Foundation, agreed in 2015 to work with the Gates foundation on areas including public health. The memorandum said that the two parties agreed to use new technologies, including the Internet, to promote what they called a “pragmatic” cooperation in the worlds of charity, international development, and public health.
The origins of the China Internet Development Foundation should be concerning to anybody who understands the extent that the Chinese government will go to influence foreign nations through various avenues, including “charity.” The organization, unlike Bill Gates’ foundation, was not established by wealthy philanthropists looking to do good, but by the Chinese Communist Party’s Ministry of Civil Affairs. It is overseen by the Cyberspace Administration of China.
It is effectively a government entity, and given its extremely close relationship with the Chinese Communist Party, shouldn’t Bill Gates have stopped to think about whether any data provided by them can be trusted?
The organization even says in its own (public) constitution that it agrees to “adhere to the guidance of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era.”
It also pledges to “consciously maintain a high degree of consistency with the Party Central Committee,” meaning that if the Chinese Communist Party is pushing one narrative, this organization will do the same.
This organization was responsible through 2020 and into this year for ensuring that Chinese media outlets promoted editorial lines approved by the Chinese Communist Party, and even paid online trolls to censor COVID info, and yet, we haven’t heard a word from Bill Gates on this.
Does he even care that his organization partnered with propagandists?
