The Communist Party in China turns 100. A century of a spreading evil that threatens to engulf the world.

100 years of an evil ideology metastasizing in the Middle Kingdom. #CCP100 #100YearsofRepression

China's Communist Party was actually founded on July 23, 1921 "by a mixture of Chinese and foreign revolutionaries in Shanghai" according to NPR, but twenty years later hiding out in caves from the Japanese they decided to rewrite history and declare that the founding of the Party was on July 1, 1921.

This is why today the communist dictatorship in China is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the founding of the political party that has created a totalitarian one party dictatorship that has caused the deaths of tens of millions of Chinese, and whose founder, Mao Zedong, is considered the greatest killer in human history, outdoing both Josef Stalin, and Adolf Hitler in body counts.

According to historian Frank Dikötter, author of the book Mao’s Great Famine, the Chinese dictator was "responsible for the deaths of at least 45 million people between 1958 and 1962." Mao was responsible for the deaths of as many as 70 million Chinese on his watch alone. Mao died in 1976, but the Chinese Communist Party continues its killing spree to the present day.

Estimates place the number of killed by Chinese Communists at over 70 million

On September 26, 1980 The New York Times ran a UPI story reporting that "Chinese Reds Limited To a Child Per Family"  and euphemistically wrote  "China intensified its population-control drive today by ordering the 38 million Communist Party members to have only one child per family" and how the policy would use "painstaking patience and persuasion."

Time Magazine reported in 2015 that "patience and persuasion" included "forced abortions and sterilization, and a gender imbalance resulting from female infanticide." Tom Hilditch in the South China Morning Post (Hong Kong) in September of 1995 described it as a "A Holocaust of Little Girls." In 2015 reports emerged that the one-child policy was replaced with a two-child policy.

The Dying Rooms and Return to the Dying Rooms broadcast in 1995 and 1996 respectively offered a variety of sources (human rights organizations, doctors who had fled China armed with photographs) which corroborated the claims made in the documentary:

Producers/directors Brian Woods and Kate Blewett uncover the systematic neglect of abandoned babies in Chinese state-run orphanages. They find "dark rooms" where the weakest and least liked children are left to die. These are known as "The Dying Rooms."  China’s one-child policy has created a race where most families desire boys and therefore parents are forced to abandon their babies. Their unfortunate and tragic lives are left at the mercy of these orphanages where their sad fate is ultimately decided by the staff and ignored by the government.
But the most damning evidence came from official records themselves that document how many of the children in their care died, and how long it took them to and they called it a "Summary Resolution."
In addition to systematic processes that have impacted millions, the communists would still carry out massacres when Chinese nationals engaged in sustained public dissent. 

Thirty two years ago the Pro-Democracy Movement that had taken to the streets in April of 1989 was violently crushed by the Chinese communist dictatorship beginning on the evening of June 3, 1989. By dawn on June 4, 1989 scores of demonstrators had been shot and killed or run over and crushed by tanks of the so-called People's Liberation Army. A 2017 declassified British diplomatic cable revealed that "at least 10,000 people were killed. The Chinese Communist regime still defends committing this massacre.

Between June 3 and June 5, 1989 tank drivers ran over protesters

Think of it, the biggest mass murderer of the Chinese people is the Chinese Communist Party. 100 years of conspiracies, mass killings and repression while building the perfect totalitarian cage. There is nothing to celebrate but much to mourn, and also to continue to fight for a free China.

Despite this history, Westerners decided to go into business with the Chinese Communist Party, and betrayed a free China, with many withdrawing their diplomatic recognition from Taiwan, a free and democratic republic where human rights are respected, and a free economy lifts all boats.

The island of Taiwan was under Japanese colonial rule from 1895 until 1945, and during the Chinese Civil War, the forces of a free China (the Republic of China) relocated there in 1949. Over the next 72 years the Republic of China (ROC) established itself on the island and transitioned into a democratic multi-party democracy that is an example of what a free China could be on the mainland.

It is shocking that those in power did not think twice about enriching, and providing technical know how to a totalitarian dictatorship that has killed over 70 million of their own citizens, and do not respect human rights, or the rule of law. Now, with  the aid of Western investments and technology they have intercontinental ballistic missiles and where do you think they are pointing?

It is even more shocking that after the Chinese communists demonstrated their continued outlaw status with the COVID-19 pandemic that Westerners consider this regime "a good place to invest." It is disappointing to see business magnates, like Elon Musk, " celebrate the "economic prosperity" in Communist China, without looking at the costs. Meanwhile a jewel of international capitalism, Hong Kong, is being dismantled by the dictatorship he praises.

Genocide is taking place in Communist China against the Uighurs and Tibetans. The death count is no longer limited to China.

Let us remember that the lack of transparency by communist officials in China led to a global pandemic that has so far killed over 3,970,601 people around the world and infected nearly 200 million, and caused an economic downturn that has impacted hundreds of millions more. 

Westerners claimed that engaging with communist China would lead to them becoming more like us, but instead the rest of the world has become more like them, and human rights have been in decline for nearly two decades globally as a result. 

Time for people to wake up, before it is too late, that is if it is not already too late. Sorry Elon Musk, while communism reins in Mainland China, the only China that I will be visiting is a free China, and that today is Taiwan.
