On June 18, Chinese Communist Party mouthpiece Xinhua reported that Communist Party leader Xi Jinping led Li Keqiang, Li Zhanshu, Wang Yang, Wang Huning, Zhao Leji, Han Zheng, Wang Qishan and other top Communist Party officials to “recite the party oath” at the recently completed and first-ever Communist Party History Exhibition Hall in Beijing.
The most striking thing about this high-profile appearance of the CPC top brass is that, compared to four years ago in October 2017 when the top brass “recited the oath of party membership” at the site of the First Communist Party Congress in Shanghai and Zhejiang, all the top brass in Beijing turned out. This time, not only all the members of the Politburo of the CPC Central Committee in Beijing, but also all the vice-presidents of the CPC in Beijing and other top Communist Party officials were also present.
On the surface, the above-mentioned actions of the CPC top officials seem to be part of the “Centennial Celebration” campaign of the CPC, but in comparison with the current international isolation of the CPC and the recent rumors on the Internet about the flight of senior CPC officials from the United States, this “renewal of the party oath” with great fanfare can be interpreted as “, can be interpreted as, first, a collective kidnapping and bluff to embolden themselves; second, a warning and threat to senior CCP officials and all party members not to flee.
Can the Brainwashing Campaign Preserve the CCP
In April 2021, the CCP launched a new 2021 edition of “A Brief History of the Communist Party of China” and used the book as a teaching material to launch a nationwide brainwashing campaign to learn and educate about the history of the Party for the centennial of its founding.
At the same time, in order to eliminate the voices of doubt and to ensure the effectiveness of brainwashing, the CCP labeled anyone who presented historical truths unfavorable to the CCP as “historical nihilism”. In the name of opposing “historical nihilism,” the Chinese Communist Party’s National Internet Information Office has set up a special reporting line for people to report so-called “distortions of the CCP’s history, attacks on the CCP leadership, and defamation of heroes and martyrs.
First, the Communist Party wants to bring the “Centennial Celebration” brainwashing campaign to a climax by repeatedly propagating the carefully falsified history of the Communist Party to make itself look like the Communist Party leader Xi Jinping. On the other hand, the CCP expects the recently completed CCP History Exhibition Hall in Beijing to become a brainwashing base.
However, at present, the people in mainland China are generally burdened with the three mountains of housing, education and medical care, coupled with the fact that China’s economic downturn has become a definite trend, leading to the seriousness of the unemployment problem, while the gap between the rich and the poor in China continues to widen, the bottom class generally lacks a sense of happiness, and is full of deprivation, “inward scroll”, “lying flat” and other terms recently. The phrases “lying flat” have recently become prevalent on the Chinese internet, especially resonating with the younger generation. Contrast this with the huge gap between rich and poor that exists in China today. The so-called fruits of the CCP’s reform and opening-up have been seized and monopolized by the top families of the CCP. The “Chinese dream of great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation” repeatedly propagated by the CCP at this time can only disappoint the masses of people at the bottom, who do not need this “CCP dream”.
On the other hand, there is a resurgence of Cultural Revolution thinking and practices in mainland China. The CCP’s “Centennial Celebration” brainwashing campaign, with its propaganda tentacles covering all social classes in China, aimed to make the Chinese people steadfastly “listen to the Party and follow the Party”. Mao Zedong’s ideology, which has made a large number of leftists who support Mao Zedong’s ideology ecstatic. For example, a series of videos of people in mainland China singing Mao’s praises and dancing to the word “loyalty” on public occasions have been posted on the Internet for some time.
However, the CCP’s long-standing education on “hatred” has blossomed, combined with the current “centennial” brainwashing campaign and Xi Jinping’s “working for the happiness of the Chinese people”, which was intended to As a result, the incited nationalist and populist sentiments have turned into “hatred” for everything, and the resurgence of Cultural Revolution thinking and practices has intensified social discontent and intensified social contradictions, the Chinese Communist Party authorities For example, recently, the Chinese Communist Party has deployed two or more security personnel on every bus in the main city of Beijing.
In this context, can the “Centennial” brainwashing campaign make the Chinese people agree that the CCP is “the party that works for the happiness of the Chinese people”?
Unprecedented Internal and External Isolation
On Oct. 31, 2017, Xi Jinping led six other members of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee to “recite the oath of initiation” at the site of the Great Communist Party Congress in Shanghai and Zhejiang Province with confidence. At that time, when the new members of the Standing Committee of the CPC Central Committee were elected after the 19th CPC National Congress and the “Community of Human Destiny” proposed by Xi Jinping had just been included in the CPC Constitution, the top echelon of the CPC was confidently planning to use the “CPC proposal” to make a great effort to reshape the world order and dominate the world. In less than four years, the Communist Party of China (CPC) has been able to achieve its goal of world domination.
In less than four years, the CCP’s diplomatic wolves have personally messed up Xi Jinping’s “great power diplomacy with Chinese characteristics” and the CCP is facing unprecedented isolation. Now, not only are they facing renewed pressure from the international community to investigate the source of the CCP virus, but there is also a growing consensus in the United States, Europe, Australia, and Japan on the issue of the CCP’s tyranny, and against this backdrop, there are rumors in the U.S. media of the flight of senior officials from within the CCP.
The Chinese Communist Party intends to take advantage of the centennial anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party to once again sell its “Communist Party program” to the international community, which it believes to be successful. Even monks and nuns from several Buddhist colleges in mainland China have been organized to participate in competitions and study activities on the history of the CCP, which is unbelievable.
However, with the recent spate of major safety accidents in mainland China, the Communist authorities have, on the one hand, asked local governments to closely investigate safety hazards and, on the other, issued warnings to severely punish those responsible for major accidents. on June 17, a national production safety conference convened by Communist Party Vice Premier Liu He called for safety inspections of facilities where such accidents could occur, “strengthening social prevention and control” and to “create a safe and stable environment for the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Party.”
Meanwhile, China News reported on June 21 that heavy rains have devastated six provinces from the south to the north since June, with 21 rivers currently experiencing above-alarm flooding. The situation is at odds with the Chinese Communist Party’s carefully crafted national prosperity, and the Communist Party’s top brass does not want to see negative news reports affecting the Party’s celebrations at this time, so reports of the ongoing floods are hard to find in the headlines of major Chinese media portals.
Finally, the Chinese Communist regime has become a target of the international community and is isolated in the international community like never before, with internal and external difficulties. At this time, the top brass of the CCP is “renewing their oath to join the Party”, sticking to their one-party selfishness and determined to offend all sectors of Chinese society to the end.
