I was once a member of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and one of the speechwriters for Wei Jianxing, the former member of the Politburo Standing Committee, and the Secretary of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection.
In Nov. 2004, The Epoch Times published an editorial series “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party” that covered the CCP from theory to practice, from history to reality, stripping out all of its disguises, and exposing its evil nature to the world. Since then, there has been a wave of withdrawals from the CCP and its affiliated organizations, Youth League, and Young Pioneers, from around the globe.
At that time, I used a pseudonym to make a quitting statement on The Epoch Times website. Why did I quit the CCP? I will briefly talk about my views here.
Let me start with my initial motivation to join the CCP. I remember that I joined the CCP in early 1994. Back then, I was a Ph.D. candidate at the Department of International Politics, Renmin University of China.
Some graduates were assigned to work in the CCP’s central organizations after getting their Ph.D. degrees. Ni Liya was assigned to work in the Policy Research Office of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and once served as the Director of the Cultural Bureau of the Central Policy Research Office. Yu Hongjun was assigned to work in the International Department of the CPC Central Committee and once served as the Deputy Minister. Xue Gang was assigned to the Headquarters of the General Staff of Central Military Commission and once served as a military attaché abroad.
Likewise, I also wanted to work in a central agency after completing my Ph.D. degree. Nevertheless, the CCP has an unwritten rule that whoever works in the central agency must be a party member. At the time, I joined the CCP mainly because it was a job requirement.
So, why did I quit the CCP? It’s a long story. Here I will try to focus on my understanding of the CCP.
The CCP did not naturally grow on Chinese soil. It was built in 1921 under the control of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union to defend the Soviet Union, as one of its main missions.
The CCP and the Chinese nation do not share a common ancestor. Its progenitor is Karl Marx who was an adherent of Satan. Therefore, the CCP leaders often claim to see Marx after death.
Communism did not originate from the 5,000-year-traditional Chinese culture, but the Communist Manifesto by Marx in 1848, with the core ideology of “deceit, malice, and struggle.”
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the CCP. In the first 28 years, the CCP mainly did just one thing: unscrupulously subverted China’s legitimate government─the Republic of China; in the following 72 years, it did another major thing: unscrupulously retained the totalitarian rule of mainland China.
The CCP cares nothing about China
On Dec. 9, 1999, the CCP leader Jiang Zemin and Russian President Boris Yeltsin signed in Beijing a narrative protocol on the boundary between China and Russia, which recognized the string of unequal treaties signed between the corrupt late Qing government and the Tsarist government. The Protocol unconditionally gave Russia the territory of more than 1 million square kilometers of northeast China occupied by Russia.
To Jiang’s traitorous behavior, no one, none of the members of the party hierarchy leaderships from local authorities to central authorities raised objections.
The CCP cares nothing about the Chinese
The CCP has been in power for 72 years and has launched dozens of bloody and brutal political campaigns. For example, in 1958, Mao Zedong launched the Great Leap Forward Movement, and due to his ultra-left policy, caused a great famine that is rare in Chinese history—even in the history of mankind.
In 1996, Chen Yizi, a member of the think tank of former General Secretary Zhao Ziyang, estimated that based on confidential documents within the party that the number of excess deaths ranged from 43 to 46 million.
According to a veteran cadre’s interview (video), the second national census led by Yang Shangkun in 1964, then Director of the General Office of the CPC Central Committee, concluded that the actual number of peasants that starved to death in the three-year famine was 96 million. This file was still documented in the Ministry of Public Security.
When Jiang Zemin was in power, he launched a frenzied persecution of Falun Gong. Amid which, the most heinous atrocity is the large-scale live harvesting of organs from Falun Gong practitioners. On June 22, 2016, Canadian human rights lawyers David Matas, David Kilgour, and American journalist Ethan Gutmann jointly prepared the report (pdf), Bloody Harvest/The Slaughter, an Update, where they estimated that the number of organ transplants carried out in China is about 60,000 to 100,000 annually, and it could be up to 1.5 million from 2000 to 2016. And the main source of these organs could be Falun Gong practitioners.
The CCP cares nothing of the Chinese culture
Traditional Chinese culture is known as the divinely inspired culture. The atheist CCP prohibits the Chinese from any belief. It deifies itself and preaches the party’s supremacy. Under the CCP’s rule, the army, enterprises, media, universities, and even religions should only follow the CCP’s evil.
The CCP has distorted all the existing religions inside China today. Shi Yinshun, vice chairman of the Buddhist Association of China said, “The CCP is a living Buddha and Bodhisattva and the report of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China is the contemporary Buddhist scriptures of China.” His statement was imbued with the Communist faith and publicly blasphemed against Buddhas and Dharma.
Those who are aware of my situation may ask: You were expelled from the CCP. That being the case, why did you publicly declare your withdrawal from the party afterward?
I was indeed expelled from the party by the CCP. On July 20, 1999, the day the CCP dictator Jiang Zemin launched the persecution of Falun Gong, I was quarantined for investigation. Six days later, on July 26, I was expelled from the party.
The CCP expelled me from the party not because I made a mistake at work, not because I made a financial mistake, not because I made a mistake in my personal relationship, but simply because I wrote Jian Zemin a letter on May 7, 1999. In the letter addressed to Jiang, I said that “Falun Dafa benefits the country and the people and harms no one.”
I was telling the truth on the issue of Falun Gong.
The CCP expelled a member from the party when the member spoke the truth to the party general secretary. I would like to ask: Is this party righteous or evil?
I started practicing Falun Gong on May 3, 1995. As of July 20, 1999, I had been practicing Falun Gong for more than four years. Falun Gong is a Buddhist practice rooted in ancient Chinese traditions. Its core philosophy is “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance,” and it requires a cultivator to be a good person in strict accordance with “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” wherever they are. At home, be a good father, husband, and son, in society, be a good citizen, and be a good employee in the workplace.
The four-plus-year practice of Falun Gong, by that time, had brought out the best in me in all aspects in my life. It was then that the CCP treated me as a “bad person,” kicking me out of the party. I would like to ask: Is this party righteous or evil?
Why did I publicly denounce the party?
Expelling me from the party is a punishment by the CCP, but not a break from it. When I joined the CCP, I vowed with my life to fight for the communism advocated by Marx, who was a believer in Satan. As the Chinese saying goes, “God is always watching what you are doing.” God must have seen my taking the vow.
I publicly declared that I renounced party membership to show God: I have severed my ties with the atheist CCP, and returned to my belief in God.
Only those who truly believe in God can be blessed and protected by God.
