It will be interesting to see what will happen over the next few days, weeks and months in China, because recently, protesters in southern Guangdong province, China, a province that borders Hong Kong, began to protest the communist government’s attempt at building a polluting crematorium near their town. Interestingly enough, the protesters also adopted slogans most commonly used by the Hong Kong protesters.
Hong Kong newspaper Apple Daily, a newspaper that openly supports the protesters, reported that protesters in Guangdong were using slogans used by Hong Kong protesters, such as “revolution of our times”, which the Chicoms consider to be “hate speech”, as well as “just like you, Hong Kong.”
It’s interesting that these protesters would use such slogans, considering the heavy censorship that the communist government implements with regards to the Hong Kong protests.
Breitbart News reports something else that is rather interesting: “The presence of support for the Hong Kong pro-democracy movement within China may signal greater problems ahead for the Communist Party, which spent much of 2018 crushing dissent from its Maoist ranks who see dictator Xi Jinping as too repressive of the proletariat and deviant from communist orthodoxy.”
That is very interesting to me because it points out the mindset of some people. This is what communism brings in general. It’s ironic that they are known as “Maoist” when his “Great Leap Forward” was responsible for killing 45 million+ people. It’s no surprise whatsoever that Xi Jinping would be repressive of the proletariat: when you eliminate or conform the bourgeoise, the proletariat is the only class left to foot the bill and to suffer the most.
Anyone who is a billionaire in China is only as wealthy as they are because of the government allowing them to be that wealthy. And the government allows them to be that wealthy because the billionaires help the Communist Party, be it through technological advantages to spy and further oppress the populace, or through pro-communist companies like Alibaba.
What Xi Jinping is doing is exactly what Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini and other socialist/communist, big government types do: oppress their people and make them slaves.
Regardless, let’s return to the actual protests.
Time reported that the protests happened in Wenlou, roughly 60 miles from Hong Kong all throughout the weekend and last week. According to Breitbart: “Local officials had told residents they were in the process of constructing a ‘human ecological park’ in what they later revealed would be the site of a crematorium. Crematoria in China, as they are run by the government, are rarely subject to environmental controls and release blasts of harmful smoke and chemicals into the environment.”
What’s more, China uses crematoria to essentially erase any semblance of ethnic and religious minorities in an area like western Xinjiang province, and replacing them with atheist, Marxist members of the majority ethnic group Han. Now, I would ask what the point of building a crematorium in the region would be if I were completely ignorant of what communists like Xi Jinping intended to do with it. The crematorium would most likely serve as a symbol of oppression, where they would send dissenters’ bodies to be cremated (assuming they burn the people when they are dead).
In any case, China’s response to these protests are what you would expect out of them: violent crackdowns that reportedly are indiscriminate against who would receive such violence, as one resident told Apple Daily that the police would horrendously beat anyone who would attempt to approach officers, despite of the person’s threat level or intent. This included the elderly and children, as the two linked Twitter videos, captured by people present at the protests and published by humanitarian groups, show.
Suffice to say, communism is an abomination.
I find it extremely ironic that there are those who call themselves “Maoists” and are shocked that Xi Jinping would be doing this to the Chinese people. Last year, the Jasic Technology factory in Shenzhen, a city resting at the border of Hong Kong, held Maoist protesters demanding Chairman Xi that he “respect the rights of workers as a fellow communist”, according to Breitbart News. In response, local police, under orders of Xi, violently clashed with worker and student protesters.
This is what happens living under communism: if you don’t like what the government is doing, you get punished. And this is what the American Left wants to bring to our country.
When idiots like Mark Ruffalo and other Hollywood elites lambast capitalism, they are unaware of the fact that communism would prevent them from being able to speak out against the government when they feel it is doing something bad.
To give you some context, Mark Ruffalo, the actor who plays The Incredible Hulk in the Avengers movies, tweeted: “It’s time for an economic revolution. Capitalism today is failing us, killing us, and robbing from our children’s future.”
If we lived in a communist country and you would replace the word “capitalism” with the word “communism”, it wouldn’t be shocking at all how quickly Ruffalo would “disappear”. The guy claims to want socialism/communism but doesn’t understand at all what that would mean. The guy enjoys traveling to Washington D.C. (by plane, of course) to whine to politicians about how we are killing the planet. But if he were to try the same thing with the Chinese government, he would get censored at best and outright “disappeared” at worst.
Ignoring the fact that under communism, Ruffalo would be nowhere near a $30 million net worth, and even ignoring the fact that this guy spouts about how capitalism is “killing” us while enjoying the fruits of capitalism, the guy is either extremely and willfully ignorant about what’s happening in China or is extremely stupid.
Communism is hands-down the worst form of government ever created and the most oppressive one. The fact that so many people are attracted to it is equal parts sad and terrifying.
We should be learning from history. Communism has been tried and is currently being tried. It has always resulted in failure and will ultimately doom China. The only reason for China to still be afloat is their more capitalist approach to economics. But considering how antithetical communism is to the very basic desire for man to be free, China is on track to eventual self-destruction.
What we find in China is the direct result of decades of communism. It is an outright plague that must be eliminated.
