Over the past few months, a handful of hardliners in Washington have launched a China-smearing campaign over the coronavirus pandemic and human rights in Xinjiang, meddled in China's internal affairs concerning Hong Kong, Taiwan and the South China Sea, cracked down on Chinese tech firms, and deliberately stirred up an ideological confrontation with Beijing.
