China on Saturday branded U.S. democracy a "weapon of mass destruction" on Saturday, following the U.S.-organized Summit for Democracy which aimed to shore up like-minded allies in the face of autocratic regimes.

China was left out of the two-day virtual summit -- along with countries including Russia and Hungary -- and responded by angrily accusing U.S. President Joe Biden of stoking Cold War-era ideological divides.

"'Democracy' has long become a 'weapon of mass destruction' used by the U.S. to interfere in other countries," a foreign ministry spokesperson said in an online statement, which also accused the US of having "instigated 'color revolutions'" overseas.

China is also pissed that we've decided to do a political boycott of their upcoming Winter Olympics along with Canada, the UK and several other nations. China claimed they would retaliate. This is clearly part of that.
