Founded in July 1921, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has wreaked death and destruction on the Chinese populace for a century.

Armed with the Marxist ideology of “struggle” as its guiding principle, the CCP has launched scores of movements targeting a long list of enemy groups: spies, landlords, intellectuals, disloyal officials, pro-democracy students, religious believers, and ethnic minorities.

With each campaign, the Party’s purported goal has been to create a “communist heaven on earth.” But time and again, the results have been the same: mass suffering and death. Meanwhile, a few elite CCP officials and their families have accumulated incredible power and wealth.

More than 70 years of Party rule have resulted in the killing of tens of millions of Chinese people and the dismantling of a 5,000-year-old civilization.

While China has advanced economically in recent decades, the CCP retains its nature as a Marxist-Leninist regime bent on solidifying its grip on China and the world. Millions of religious believers, ethnic minorities, and dissidents are still violently repressed today. ...

Less than a decade after the Party’s founding, Mao Zedong, then the head of a communist-controlled territory in southeast China’s Jiangxi Province, launched a political purge of his rivals known as the Anti-Bolshevik League Incident. Mao accused his rivals of working for the Anti-Bolshevik League, the intelligence agency of the Kuomintang, which was China’s ruling party at the time.

The result was that thousands of Red Army personnel and Party members were killed in the purge. ...

Mao and his loyalists employed the familiar tactic of accusing his rivals of being spies in order to purge senior officials and other Party members.

All told, about 10,000 CCP members were killed.

During the movement, people were tortured and forced to confess to being spies, wrote Wei Junyi in a 1998 book.

“Everyone became a spy in Yan’an, from middle-school students to primary school students,” Wei, who was then editor of state-run news agency Xinhua, wrote. “Twelve-year-olds, 11-year-olds, 10-year-olds, even a 6-year-old spy was discovered!” ...

In October 1949, the CCP took control of China, and Mao became the regime’s first leader. Months later, in the regime’s first movement, named Land Reform, Mao mobilized the nation’s poorest peasants to violently seize the land and other assets of those deemed landlords—many of whom were just more-well-off peasants. Millions died. ...

“Many of the victims were beaten to death and some shot, but in many cases, they were first tortured in order to make them reveal their assets—real or imagined,” according to historian Frank Dikötter, who has painstakingly chronicled Mao’s brutality. ...

Over the next few months, Li’s close relatives and extended family would be tortured to death, one after another.

As a result of the torture, Li—who was 22 years old at the time—lost his manhood. During the CCP’s subsequent movements, Li would be tortured several more times, costing him his eyesight. ...

What ensued was the worst man-made disaster in history: the Great Famine, during which tens of millions died of starvation, from 1959 to 1961.

Starving peasants turned to wild animals, grass, bark, and even kaolinite, a clay mineral, for food. Extreme hunger also drove many to cannibalism.

There are recorded cases of people eating the corpses of strangers, friends, and family members, and parents killing their children for food—and vice-versa.

Jasper Becker, who wrote the Great Leap Forward account “Hungry Ghosts,” said that Chinese people were forced to engage—out of pure desperation—in selling human flesh on the market, and the swapping of children so they wouldn’t eat their own.

Across 13 provinces, there were a total of 3,000 to 5,000 recorded cases of cannibalism. ...

As many as 45 million people died during the Great Leap Forward, according to historian Dikötter, author of “Mao’s Great Famine.” ...

After the catastrophic failure of the Great Leap Forward, Mao, feeling that he was losing his grip on power, launched the Cultural Revolution in 1966 in an attempt to use the Chinese populace to reassert control over the CCP and country. Creating a cult of personality, Mao aimed to “crush those persons in authority who are taking the capitalist road” and strengthen his own ideologies, according to an early directive.

Over 10 years of mandated chaos, millions were killed or driven to suicide in state-sanctioned violence, while zealous young ideologues, the infamous Red Guards, traveled about the country destroying and denigrating China’s traditions and heritage.

Now traveling about the country destroying and denigrating our traditions and heritage sounds very familiar!

It was a whole-of-society endeavor, with the Party encouraging people from all walks of life to snitch on co-workers, neighbors, friends, and even family members who were “counter-revolutionaries”—anyone with politically incorrect thoughts or behaviors.

Also very familiar in America now!

Zhang Zhixin, an elite CCP member who worked in the Liaoning provincial government, was among the victims of the campaign. According to an account reported by Chinese media after the Cultural Revolution, a colleague reported Zhang in 1968 after she commented to that co-worker that she couldn’t understand some of the CCP’s actions. The 38-year-old was then detained at a local Party cadre training center, where more than 30,000 staff members of the provincial government were being held.

While in detention, she refused to admit to doing anything wrong and stood by her political opinions. She was firmly loyal to the Party but disagreed with some of Mao’s policies. She was sent to prison.

There, Zhang suffered horrendously as officials tried to force her to give up her viewpoints. Prison guards would use iron wire to keep her mouth open and then push a dirty mop into it. They handcuffed her hands behind her back and hung a 40-pound block of iron from the chains. Provincial CCP officials even ripped out all of her hair, and guards would often arrange for male prisoners to gang-rape her.

Zhang attempted to commit suicide but failed, which caused prison officials to step up their control. Her husband was also forced to divorce her. By early 1975, Zhang had descended into madness. In April of that year, she was executed by firing squad. Before being shot, the prison guards cut her trachea to silence her. She died at the age of 45.

During Zhang’s detention, her husband and two young children were forced to renounce their relationship with her. Upon learning of her death, they didn’t even dare cry—for fear that they would be heard by neighbors who might report them for bearing resentment toward the Party. ...

Tiananmen Square Massacre

What started as a student gathering to mourn the death of reform-minded former Chinese leader Hu Yaobang in April 1989 morphed into the largest protests the regime had ever seen. University students who congregated at Beijing’s Tiananmen Square asked the CCP to control severe inflation, curb officials’ corruption, take responsibility for past faults, and support a free press and democratic ideas.

Inflation, official corruption, lack of a free press? All very familiar in America now!

Thousands are estimated to have died.

Lily Zhang, who was head nurse at a Beijing hospital a 15-minute walk from the square, recounted to The Epoch Times the bloodshed from that night. She woke up to the sound of gunfire and rushed to the hospital on the morning of June 4 after hearing of the massacre.

She was horrified when she arrived at her hospital to find a “warzone-like” scene. Another nurse, sobbing, told her the pool of blood from injured protesters was “forming a river at the hospital.” ...

“Shooting down unarmed students and commoners—what kind of ruling party is this?” were his final words, Zhang recalled.

Then-Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, who ordered the bloody clampdown, was quoted in a British government cable as saying that “two hundred dead could bring 20 years of peace to China,” a month before the massacre in May 1989.

To this day, the regime has refused to disclose the number killed in the massacre or their names, and heavily suppresses information about the incident. ...

In 2008, Tibetans protested to express their anger at the regime’s control. The regime, in response, deployed the police. Hundreds of Tibetans were killed.

Since 2009, more than 150 Tibetans have self-immolated, hoping their deaths might stop the regime’s tight control in Tibet.

In Xinjiang, the regime authorities have been accused of committing genocide against Uyghurs and other ethnic minorities, including detaining a million people in secretive “political reeducation” camps.

Everyone in Hong Kong and Taiwan should have US passports tomorrow.

There may be another way of doing this ...

The former citizens/denizens of Hong Kong & Taiwan become PR/green card holders in Malaysia, Philippines, and Singapore. Singapore is already 75+% Chinese ethnic so its not a big deal for them. I believe the US State Dept can work with these govts to make it happen.

And then, over time, as PRC increases the squeeze, the neighboring nations have a dual vested interested in keeping the post-SEATO alliance with Uncle Sam and keeping PRC limited in its Imperial vision over east Asia.

The problem with making everyone an American is that eventually, they'll leave Asia-Pacific and be like everyone else here, who'd lost their ancestor's homeland to a famine or a war.

The USA is a continental power; it's not the British Empire of yesteryear where its colonies are all over the globe.

In place of the overseas BE, the US has military bases in Japan, South Korea, Philippines, etc, and thus, is able to support its allies w/o them becoming dominions.

I still think it's a better way to go than to annex more land or grant everyone a place on the North American continent plus Hawaii.

If Biden had any balls at all, he'd issue them all diplomatic passports and appoint them ambassadors to FREE! CHINA! as the PRC has no recognition outside of their status as an outlaw cult.


I am in 100% agreement with you on this @SumatraBosch

Sadly, the whole Ivy League is infested with CCP whores, resulting in the US government's being infested with CCP whores. So no one in the US government is going to lift a finger to help HK or Taiwan.

Former Police Officer Recounts Witnessing ‘Industrialized’ Organ Harvesting in China
BY EVA FU July 3, 2021

At the sound of gunshots, prisoners fell lifeless to the ground. Their bodies, still warm, were carried to a nearby white van where two white-clad doctors awaited. Behind closed doors, they were cut open, the organs carved out for sale on the transplant market.

I don't even know what to say. This is CNN showing their true colors, gushing over the murderous, tyrannical, genocidal, repressive Chinese Communist Party.

CNN would never talk about a Republican administration with such glowing, complimentary terms. But they will lavish praise on the evil commies that want to rule the world as they celebrate 100 years of death and destruction!

How can they speak like that knowing that the CCP has millions of people in concentration camps RIGHT NOW??

Watch the first few seconds again -- when the dude on the left is talking about how long the CCP 100 celebrations have been going on, Miss Lu Stout cannot stop herself from smiling with glee!

She even wore a commie-red shirt for the occasion. You think that was coincidental??

Like I said, showing their true colors!

You can't realistically granted 30M ppl US passports, even the Vietnamese (plus Cambodian/Laotian) refugees only totaled some ~2M in the US in the decades which followed the war.

The best thing to do is spread 'em between Philippines, Malaysia, & Singapore and create a type of strong anti-CCP diaspora in the Asia-Pacific rim.

Here's the thing, no nation is an island. Even at the height of the Cold War, the US was trading corn & wheat with the Soviets.

We traded corn and wheat for oil, but we didn't move over Television or Computer manufacturing to the Soviet Union.
15   Patrick   2021 Jul 3, 4:15pm  

Right, what we have now is wholesale gutting of the US manufacturing base as our abilities are moved to China and shut down here.

Under the Party’s tight censorship system, there are limited means to gauge the broader sentiment of the Chinese public, who risk jail time for posting a wrong comment online that runs afoul of the ruling regime. But data from Global Service for Quitting the CCP, a New York-based advocacy group known colloquially as the “Tuidang Center”, suggests that faith in the Party seems to be receding.

The website of the organization, which began coordinating the grassroots efforts in 2004 for people to cut ties with the three main CCP affiliated organizations—the Communist Party, Communist Youth League, and Young Pioneers organizations—shows that nearly 380 million Chinese have done so and renounced the oaths they once made to devote themselves to communism.

Here's the thing about communism ... unless they go overboard like the Khmer Rouge of Cambodia did, where they crossed the border and slaughtered Vietnamese villagers in mass, which caused the Vietnamese army to invade, they tend to survive as long as the head honcho (or his inner circle) is in place.

Remember, the Pathet Lao (now, renamed Lao People's Revolutionary Party) is still there in control of Laos. It's a forgotten fact about the aftermath of the Vietnam War.

Think Stalin and Mao, neither of whom were overthrown, and did everything in their power to usurp and kill anyone who opposed them internally.

In contrast, you can see the results for ordinary fascistic dictators like Hitler, Mussolini, Pinochet, Suharto, etc. They last, only as long as they can hold onto a strong military because eventually, their opponents will garner money and support to take 'em out.

If this current guy, Xi Jinping, is able to do the same as his aforementioned predecessors but now, using mass surveillance and some Statsi tactics, to break nascent resistance groups and insure that their ex-pat Chinese (including citizens of Singapore, Malaysia, etc) don't get to 'hang out' in the mainland to spread their nonconformist ideas, then it's possible for this regime to last his entire lifespan.

Communist China’s Repression on Faith Group ‘Must End,’ Irish Lawmakers Demand
BY DOROTHY LI July 17, 2021

DUBLIN, Ireland—Meditation, faith, and self-determination are rights bound to people “from the womb to the tomb,” but those upholding the fundamental freedoms in China suffer persecution, says an Irish politician.

The Irish know a lot about repression based on faith. I admire them for defending the basic human rights of Fulan Gong people, even though they are not even Christian.

Coming to city near you when Xiden can rule for life and Demmunists only have guns.

A Chinese government employee kept beating a cleaning lady with hand disability. When police was on site, she pushed the cleaning lady and made her head bump on the ground.

Her mother in law is a middle class CCP leader in their county. She will not be in trouble then.

Young and beautiful, they were kidnapped, beaten, humiliated and raped by former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.
