I feel so embarrassed to be an American, learning that so many American corporations gutlessly succumbing to Chinese for the money. “It’s more than a little ludicrous for everyone from Ted Cruz to Beto O’Rourke to suddenly hand the NBA and the Rockets the tab for American toadying to authoritarians in Beijing. (Shelly Jenkins, Washington Post, "Don’t be mad at the NBA. Hundreds of U.S. companies have sold out to China’s regime", 7 Oct. 2019)
Indeed, all these American corporations bowing obsequiously at China are nothing but lickspittles. The title should not be “Don’t be mad at the NBA”. It should be “Get mad at the NBA and all those toadies who cannot wait to curry favor with the Chinese” instead.
