Loudon County activist
Xi Van Fleet grew up in Mao’s China. She spent her entire school years in Mao’s Cultural Revolution. After completing high school, she was forced by the CCP to go to the countryside to work in the fields for three years to be reeducated by the peasants, like all other urban high school graduates. She was able to go to college after Deng Xiaoping seized power.
In 1986 she came to America as a student to pursue her graduate studies. She has been working in the field of Information Management for the past 30 years. As a private citizen, she has never been involved politically. However, she realized the Marxism she experienced in China was taking placing in America as a parent of the public school district in Loudon County. Attorney General of the United States under Biden is using tactics similar to ones she saw Communist China used to stop parents from speaking out. Since then, she has been committed to fight the communist trend in America, and protect our freedom.
