Chinese President Xi Jinping
Chinese President Xi Jinping’s bellicosity, mendacity, and shamelessness know no limits. His country has become a threat to the world, but he presents it as a champion of world peace. Yet, delivering a speech celebrating 100 years of the Chinese Communist Party yesterday, he vowed to break the heads of China’s enemies. From wolf-warrior diplomacy to wolfish ‘statesmanship,’ there is only one step.
“We Chinese are a people who uphold justice and are not intimidated by threats of force,” he said. “As a nation, we have a strong sense of pride and confidence. We have never bullied, oppressed, or subjugated the people of any other country, and we never will. By the same token, we will never allow any foreign force to bully, oppress, or subjugate us. Anyone who dares try to do that will have their heads bashed bloody against the Great Wall of Steel forged by over 1.4 billion Chinese people.”
But, Mr. Xi, who on earth is bullying, oppressing, or subjugating the Chinese? Rather it is the Chinese who have become a threat to the entire mankind. From spreading the novel coronavirus and killing millions of people all over the world to intimidating neighbors, carrying out genocide in Xinjiang and Tibet, suppressing democracy in Hong Kong, trading in human organs, and stealing intellectual property—there is no evil that Beijing not involved in.
And yet, he has the cheek to pontificate about world peace and shared future: “We must continue working to promote the building of a human community with a shared future. Peace, concord, and harmony are ideas the Chinese nation has pursued and carried forward for more than 5,000 years. The Chinese nation does not carry aggressive or hegemonic traits in its genes.” Lies.
He went on to assert: “The [Chinese Communist] Party cares about the future of humanity, and wishes to move forward in tandem with all progressive forces around the world. China has always worked to safeguard world peace, contribute to global development, and preserve international order.” More lies.
Still further, “On the journey ahead, we will remain committed to promoting peace, development, cooperation, and mutual benefit, to an independent foreign policy of peace, and to the path of peaceful development. We will work to build a new type of international relations and a human community with a shared future, promote high-quality development of the Belt and Road Initiative through joint efforts, and use China’s new achievements in development to provide the world with new opportunities.” Still more lies.
The “new type of international relations,” for instance, means support for rogue states like Pakistan and North Korea. The Belt and Road Initiative is an instrument of Chinese imperialism, for it ensnares smaller and weaker nations into debt trap.
