Beijing’s San Francisco Franchise: The Chinese Progressive Association

Politically, San Francisco is now an outpost of Chinese Communist Party influence on American soil. Once a bastion of pro-Taiwan Chinese anti-communism, San Francisco’s Chinatown has since been hijacked by activists supportive of the communist People’s Republic of China (PRC). Due to this powerful influence, San Francisco is now led by Supervisors (the local name for City Councilors), who have made their peace with the Beijing regime’s local allies.


Part of the blame for this disturbing transition can be placed on the 46-year-old Chinese Progressive Association (CPA). When the CPA was founded in 1972 in San Francisco’s Chinatown, few thought the fledgling pro-PRC organization would survive.

The CPA was founded by cadre from I Wor Kuen (IWK), a New York/San Francisco-based group dedicated to the “application of the science of Marxism–Leninism–Mao Tsetung Thought to the U.S. revolution.” The local anti-communist forces did not take kindly to IWK or the CPA.

    Re Willie Brown. Definitely leftist/liberal but the question is “Was his association with California, San Francisco, etc communist groups and fronts a political necessity, an ideological affinity one, or a mix of both opportunistic political choices and ideological sympathies?

    I ask this because his reported mistress or “girl friend” was Kamala Harris before she became a big shot in California politics.

    Worth looking into, isn’t it?
