A Century of ChiCom Tyranny

The Chinese Communist Party celebrates its centennial. No one else should.

July 1 marks the 100th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Obviously, the ChiComs are celebrating, but there’s little good and vast evil that has come from the party in the last century — especially since it seized power in 1949 after a bloody civil war.

Most recently, of course, the evil came in the form of the lies and cover-up of the coronavirus pandemic, which originated in Wuhan, China, almost certainly in a government lab. To date, the virus has killed 3.95 million people worldwide. While there is likely overcounting in many places, there is also dramatic undercounting in others — like, for instance, China, where the ChiComs still put the death toll at a shockingly unbelievable 4,600.

Chinese tyrants are notoriously unreliable when it comes to telling the truth about their own regime, even if Western journalists report ChiCom propaganda without question. Perhaps that’s because some American media organizations are on Beijing’s payroll.

Yet underreporting COVID deaths, even by an order of magnitude, still falls well short of the number of Chinese people murdered by Mao Zedong and his party henchmen. During his decades-long reign, tens of millions died from policy-generated famine in the Great Leap Forward. Tens of millions more suffered and died in the mass executions and prison camps of the Cultural Revolution. Estimates are difficult, but it’s likely that between 60 and 80 million Chinese were starved or killed.

Xi Jinping’s regime today may be less murderous, but it is still repressive. From quashing free speech (especially anything critical of Mao or the current regime) to profiting from slave labor and genocide, Xi is a tyrant, and he’s bent on world dominance.

In boastful remarks Thursday while wearing a Mao-style suit, Xi trumpeted China’s “historic mission” and insisted that foreign nations will never “coerce and enslave us.” None are trying, of course, and Xi is doing it to his own people. Nevertheless, he said, “Whoever attempts to do that, will surely break their heads on the steel Great Wall built with the blood and flesh of 1.4 billion of Chinese people.”

Perhaps it’s time for those 1.4 billion people to rise up against their oppressors. The regime’s crimes have been committed by or at the direction of the CCP, which numbers 95 million members, and China’s 1.4 billion people are the most direct victims of this tyranny.

The same was true of the Soviet Union, as Mark Alexander noted in his retrospective on communist tyranny and terror upon the 100th anniversary of the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution.

The bottom line is that the ChiCom regime clearly poses the biggest threat to the rest of the world, and the U.S. in particular.
