Xi Jinping warned the whole party of several things that did not expect to lead to fire

Xi Jinping has coined a new term, the correct view of Party history, on the centennial of the Communist Party’s founding. Since coining the term in late February, he has repeatedly and publicly mentioned the concept, but no one knows exactly what CCP history he classifies as “correct. In the latest issue of the Communist Party’s mouthpiece Seeking Truth magazine, Xi Jinping’s speech at a mobilization meeting on party history study and education on Feb. 20 was published in full, in which he explained in detail the “correct view of party history.

Xi Jinping said that to establish a correct view of party history, we must “be wary of some wrong tendencies”, including: “some exaggerate the mistakes and twists in party history, wantonly smear and distort the history of the party, attacking the party leadership; some of the events of party history with the real problems deliberately linked, malicious speculation; some do not believe in the correct history letter Some don’t believe in proper history and believe in wild history, vulgarize and entertain the Party history, eagerly spread gossip and anecdotes, relish illegal foreign publications, etc.”

He took the initiative to mention “not believing in proper history and wild history” and “relishing illegal overseas publications”, which immediately evoked the memory of the Causeway Bay Bookstore incident in Hong Kong.

In the incident, five members of the Causeway Bay bookstore disappeared one after another and were later confirmed to have been kidnapped back to the mainland for trial, and even the foreign bookseller Gui Minhai was forced to regain his Chinese nationality and confess his guilt on television, causing international shock when the whole barbaric operation came to light. The source of this is rumored to be the bookstore’s plan to publish a novel “Xi Jinping and His Lovers”, which deals with the emotional history of the top leader.

The book is said to mention not only Meng Xue, a presenter of the Fuzian Southeast TV station who is rumored to be Xi Jinping’s mistress, but also that Xi Jinping was absorbed by the Central Intelligence Agency as a secret agent during his visit to the United States in 1985. This is really what Xi calls “wild history” and “gossip and anecdotes”.

In addition, Xi also stressed the prohibition of “exaggerating mistakes and twists in Party history,” reminding the outside world that official textbooks have repeatedly revised the characterization of the Cultural Revolution, denying that it was a mistake made by Mao to eliminate dissidents, falsely describing failed policies such as the Great Leap Forward, which starved tens of millions of people to death, as a “natural disaster. Natural disasters”, and even whitewashed the June 4 massacre in Tiananmen Square in 1989 as a “storm”.

The French broadcaster thus commented that “it seems to be very difficult to make the history of the Communist Party a credible history”.

Professor Song Yongyi of the California State University Library told VOA that the history of the CCP is built on one lie after another, and that Xi Jinping’s call for the Party to establish a correct view of Party history is in fact a fear that the CCP will lose the hearts of the people if the lies are constantly exposed.

Netizens, for their part, rehearse an early remark made by Hu Yaobang, general secretary of the CCP, at the Central Auditorium in Beijing in February 1979: “If the people knew the history of our Communist Party, the people would rise up and overthrow us.”
