At an official Olympic Torch ceremony, one of China’s leaders, while referring to Tibet said, “We can definitely smash the separatist plot of the Dalai Lama clique completely.”
Hardly in the spirit of uniting humanity for the Olympics, he probably feels that he did nothing wrong. After all, the communist party in China always gets its way, doesn’t it? This official was undoubtedly experiencing a self-righteous moment. Sixty years of documented history recounts the CCP’s (Chinese Communist Party’s) brutal rule over China. By crook or by hook, the CCP will carry the day. Or rather, they will try to do so.
Unfortunately, whenever you try to legitimize a mafia like organization, there will always be these ‘small’ and inconvenient slips. It happens.
You can put a wolf in a tuxedo and take him with you to a wedding. At the end of the day, he is still a wolf. Clothing, no matter how well made and regardless of how much was spent for the fabric does not change the skin of the one who wears it.
They will rely on the short lifespan of current event awareness to slip back into the cloak of anonymity regarding the antagonistic and brutality laden principles of the CCP. People will forget. They shouldn’t. The CCP nature hasn’t changed over the decades, but the clothing has.
Wether you consider the treatment and hostility towards the Dalai Lama or the persecution of Christians and Falun Gong practitioners in China, the essence of the CCP emerges.
There are many facts you can verify independently. For example: The Tiananmen Square Massacre in 1989 really did happen. The persecution of Christians is documented. The most notable and well reported persecution is that of Falun Gong practitioners in China. You can find ample information about this persecution at Faluninfo.net Many reporters have exposed the treatment that petitioners, those who are attempting to exercise their legal right to appeal to the government, have received.
This social misstep of Olympic proportions simply serves to show the true nature of the Chinese Communist Party. Others have noticed it before and in depth. The website: ninecommentaries.com documents well the bloody history of the Chinese Communist Party. With this information it will be much easier to understand the Chinese government and the choices it makes.
It is also important to recognize that the CCP does not represent China or the Chinese people. With the exception of small villages or towns, CCP leadership is not voted in, they simply assume the right to rule. The Chinese Communist Party came to power through the barrel of a gun and they remain in power the same way. In addition, as has been well documented, they are willing to use brutality, labor camps and a whole host of torture techniques to insure the compliance of the population.
It is interesting to watch Chinese students as they come to the United States. If they take a good look around, they begin to understand the differences between the environment they grew up in and the freedoms that the United States has to offer. This difference is as vast as the distance between the Sun and the Earth. That is why many wish to stay here. Take a good look at the sources I mentioned above and you will develop a better understanding of the government of China which truly does not represent the people of China. I hope that China can become a free country some day. It would be better for the people of China and for the rest of the world.
