CCP’s 100 year murderous legacy is nothing to celebrate – The Telegraph


An opinion piece which does not take the sycophantic line followed by so many

July 2, 2021

The CCP’s 100 years in power has been mired with genocide, famine and oppression. It is certainly nothing to celebrate, argues the Henry Jackson Society’s Gray Sergeant.

It’s party time in China as the country’s communist party celebrates its centenary. The Chinese Communist Party, the CCP, wants you to remember China’s recent economic miracle as their most important legacy. However we must not forget the reality of what life was, and is, like in China under the CCP; The mass starvations, the political oppression, and the ethnic cleansing of communities across the country. This is the history of the CCP Xi Jinping does not want you to know.

In June 1921, the Chinese Communist Party (the CCP) was founded during a small, secretive gathering at a deserted building in Shanghai’s French Concession.

If those attending could return to China today they would struggle to comprehend the transformations which have taken place since.

In the decades which followed its founding, the chances of the CCP taking power looked remote. The party was kept on the fringes, and persecuted by Chiang Kai-Shek’s Nationalist government. It was the second world war, which ravaged the country, that proved the catalyst with the CCP emerging triumphant from the Chinese civil War of 1949. At the time, many in the West were blind to the atrocities already carried out by the CCP before they came to power, or chose to ignore them. They would soon realise the threat Mao posed to not only the Chinese people but to world peace and prosperity.

Today’s regime in Beijing attempts to whitewash the CCP’s dark history, however, it is incumbent on those of us living in free societies to tell the truth about the Chinese Communist Party’s blood legacy.

The People’s Republic of China was born with terror. As the CCP sought to cement its grip on power, in the early 1950s, campaigns were launched against those it deemed potential subversives including: businessmen, landlords and former nationalists. The intensity of these campaigns grew and grew until, in true totalitarian fashion, those who were suspected of having the wrong thoughts became targets.
