It’s incredibly unsettling how accepted, even applauded socialism and even full-blown communism have become in American society. When did it become acceptable for a government to ‘disappear’ a world-renowned businessman? Do yourself a favor, don’t ask Berkshire Hathaway Vice Chairman Charlie Munger, the right-hand man of Warren Buffett.
During an MSNBC special about Buffett, Munger said “Communists did the right thing,” when they cracked down hard on Alibaba founder Jack Ma for criticizing the Chinese Communist Party’s opposition to innovation.

OANN reported, “When asked about the mysterious disappearance of Alibaba CEO Jack Ma as an issue with Chinese economics, Munger doubled down on his pro-CCP rhetoric.”
“Well yes, but Jack Ma’s one of the swingers. So they just cut his, they said to hell with you,” he expressed. “He basically gave a speech when he said to one party state, you guys are a bunch of jerks, don’t know what you’re doing and I know what I’m doing and I’m going to do it better.”

Beyond the abominable and terrifying treatment of Jack Ma, Munger suggested he would want “the financial part” of the CCP system for America, according to The Federalist,
“Munger also expressed hope that the U.S. would adopt some of China’s willingness to “step in preemptively to stop speculation” instead of “our own wonderful free enterprise economy [which] is letting all these crazy people go to this gross excess.” The vice-chair clarified that he wouldn’t want “all of the Chinese system” but said he would “certainly would like to have the financial part of it in my own country.”
Reuters wrote that Alibaba was hit with a record-shattering $2.75 billion antitrust penalty by the Communist government as “China tightens controls on the booming “platform economy”.” they also reported that he praise “China’s move to impose a sweeping restructuring on Jack Ma’s Ant Group, the fintech giant whose record $37 billion IPO was derailed by regulators in November.”
The fawning, sickening praise for one of the deadliest regimes in recorded history should be deeply disturbing to any person of conscience. But Munger continued, praising China’s handling of COVID19 “simply shut[ting] down the country for six weeks” at the outset of the panic, seeming to forget that the CCP was welding doors shut with saying victims of the virus inside.
“That turned out to be exactly the right thing to do. And they didn’t allow any contact,” he said, in lockstep with Beijing. “When it was all over, they kind of went back to work. It happened they did it exactly right.”
Munger has also chosen to conveniently ignore the mounting evidence that the ‘lab-leak theory’ is, in fact, correct and that Chinese-run, and partly US-funded “gain of function research” led to the development and accidental (possibly even deliberate) release of COVID19. And as conflict with the Chinese Communist government seems more inevitable each day, history may remember Munger’s comments as downright treasonous.
