Communist China: A force for good or evil? Students respond (VIDEO)
- Campus Reform asked University of Maryland students about Mao Zedong on the 70th anniversary of Communist China.
- Some students didn’t know who Mao while others weren’t sure how they felt about the communist milestone.
- Students also shared their thoughts on their school’s Confucius Institute, which has come under scrutiny.
Campus Reform’s Eduardo Neret went to the University of Maryland-College Park on the 70th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China to see how students there felt about the communist regime and its former leader Mao Zedong.
UMD-College Park is one of the dozens of college campuses in the U.S. to house a Confucius Institute, which American intelligence agencies say the Chinese communist government uses to spread its own propaganda. In 2018, President Donald Trump signed into law a bill that prohibits universities that house Confucius Institutes from receiving some federal funding.
