None of the things you state are related to "communism". Communism doesn't mean lower personal rights, political rights, or anything like that.
In practice, China is a capitalistic democracy with high taxes. They have as much choice for political office as we do, the difference is that in the US, we still put on a show. The government doesn't decide what's made and where, but requires that it be "owner" of it. This is functionally a tax system, not a communistic central planning system.
But we have to have a declared enemy, and some reason why we hate them, so we make up lies about them.
