California Dems Vote to Seek Mutual Defense Treaty with China [semi-satire]

Citing the "common interests we share with China," eighty California State Assembly members have unanimously passed a bill to declare the legislature's support for "a mutual defense treaty to deal with the threat posed to both our nations by the Trump regime."

Assembly member Evan Low (D-Campbell) said "the Trump Administration's policies constitute a mortal danger to every Californian. It is our natural right to sever the political bonds with his tyranny and seek new guards for our liberties. Given the military might of the armed forces controlled by Trump it is imperative that we, much like the confederation of colonies that sought independence from our British overlords in 1776, align with a foreign power of sufficient strength to deter the oppression Trump would impose on California."

Among the specific grievances listed by the bill, Low highlighted "the most egregious of affronts to our state's rights, including the interdiction of the immigrants needed to provide the votes necessary to reattach lands stolen from Mexico by United States aggression in 1848 and preventing the abolition of fossil-based fuels that would lead to a cleaner, greener environment."

"I know some people will question whether China could be trusted to respect California's independence," Low acknowledged. "They say the Chinese one-party government is too different from our democracy. But wasn't the same thing true during the American Revolution when the French autocratic government sided with the rebellion against the British? The important thing is that even though our two governments have a different form of rule we do share a common devotion to socially progressive ideals. I believe these shared ideals can be relied upon to ensure a live-and-let-live long-term relationship between the liberator and the liberated."

In related news, Beto O'Rourke, the Democratic candidate for US Senate from Texas asked that the American flags be removed from the Veterans of Foreign Wars hall that he rented for a campaign rally in Navasota. A spokesman for his campaign explained "a lot of our supporters aren't Americans. By virtue of great effort and arduous treks across the barren wastes of Mexico they have arrived in Texas in time to vote for Beto to represent them in Congress. Why should they be forced to look at a flag they consider a symbol of oppression?"

It really is getting hard to decipher satire vs reality these days.
