Seventy one years ago the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) founded the “People’s Republic of China”. But it is neither the people’s, nor a republic.
Instead, it is a hell on earth. By even the most conservative estimates, the CCP’s rule in China has resulted in the unnatural deaths of nearly 100 million people in the past 71 years. On average, that is more than 3,000 people dying tragic deaths every single day.
The victims include Chinese, Tibetans, Uyghurs, Mongolians, Hong Kongers, Christians, Falun Gong practitioners and people of other faiths, men, women, children and the elderly. The CCP’s hands are also tainted with blood for the lives of people around the world by extending its evil to embolden dictators in North Korea, Iran, Cuba, Syria, Sudan, Venezuela and elsewhere.
Today, under dictator Xi Jingping — who is following in the footsteps of China’s bloodiest dictator, Mao Tse Tung — the CCP is deploying an Orwellian mass control system, perpetrating the annihilation of civil society in China, the cultural and literal genocide of the Uyghurs, Tibetans, Mongolians, political-cultural genocide of the people of Hong Kong, and military intimidation on democratic Taiwan. It has maliciously propagated the Covid 19 Pandemic, which has killed over one million people worldwide with debilitating health and economic effects.
China is now the number one threat to world security and peace. The question now before us is thus: Will we allow this threat from the CCP to continue for another 71 years, 71 months or even 71 days?
Let us join hands in preventing Xi Jinping’s long-term dream of a world-dominating Chinese Communist Empire from becoming a reality. Together, let us fight to preserve our freedom, and extend it to all trapped in the CCP’s oppressive yoke.
