Christine O’Donnell In 2006: I Have Classified Information That China Is Plotting To Take Over U.S.
In a 2006 debate with two other Delaware Republican candidates for U.S. Senate, current nominee Christine O’Donnell claimed she had classified information that China was plotting to take over the United States.
She said China had a “carefully thought out and strategic plan to take over America” and accused one opponent of appeasement for suggesting that the two countries were economically dependent and should find a way to be allies.
“That doesn’t work,” she said. “There’s much I want to say. I wish I wasn’t privy to some of the classified information that I am privy to.”
“A country that forces women to have abortions and mandates that you can only have one child and will not allow you the freedom to read the Bible, you think they can be our friend?” she asked. “We have to look at our history and realize that if they pretend to be our friend it’s because they’ve got something up their sleeve.”
Opponent Jan Ting, who ultimately won the GOP nomination but lost to Democrat Tim Carper in the general election, challenged O’Donnell on her assertions.
“I think our China policy has to be handled very carefully,” Ting said. “We have the capability of making an enemy or a friend out of China.”
When Ting challenged O’Donnell’s claim about having secret information, O’Donnell didn’t answer specifically but suggested she had received it through nonprofit groups she worked with that frequently sent missionaries there.Click here for reuse options!
