On December 1, the day after the news of the death of Jiang Zemin, the former General Secretary of the Communist Party of China was announced, Rick Jensen, known as one of the top 100 most influential talk show hosts in the United States, did a 20-minute special talk show on WDEL Radio in Delaware, titled “CCP Genocide—Jiang Zemin is dead, Falun Gong survivors practitioners tell the truth.”
Rick Jensen invited two Falun Gong practitioners to participate. One is Chen Hua, also known as Crystal Chen, who survived being tortured and forced into slavery by the CCP. Chen told of the brutal persecution she endured for practicing Falun Gong. Next, Ben Maloney, director of digital promotion at the Falun Dafa Information Center (www.Faluninfo.net), talked about the genocidal persecution perpetrated by Jiang Zemin.
For the past two decades, Rick Jensen has been monitoring and reporting on the CCP’s persecution of Falun Gong. He denounced that genocide and forced labor are still happening in China and that the Biden administration and big American brands are still aiding and abetting these crimes by doing business with entrepreneurs and companies affiliated with the CCP.
Rick Jensen said: Jiang Zemin served as General Secretary of the Communist Party of China from 1989 to 2002, Chairman of the Central Military Commission from 1989 to 2004, and President of China from 1993 to 2003. “What most Americans don’t know is that Jiang Zemin’s brutality of slave labor and genocide continues to this day. However, people will hear all about this first-hand from witnesses whose lives and families have been crushed by the Chinese Communist Party.”
At the show’s start, Rick Jensen told the audience, “You hear me sometimes talk about the horrors of the CCP’s genocide and forced labor. We shouldn’t be dealing with these these insane, genocide people. They are a tyrannical organization.”
Ben Maloney first explains why Jiang Zemin is the cruelest tyrant in history. He said, “Jiang Zemin was the mastermind behind the incarceration, torture, and mass murder of 100 million people. In 1999, one in 13 people in China practiced Falun Gong. At that time, Falun Gong was very popular in China, with about 100 million followers. This is the real source of traditional Chinese culture, following the principle of ‘Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.'” This belief is wholly opposed to prejudice, violence, atheism, and Marxism.” In 1999, Jiang Zemin began to launch fierce persecution, which continues to this day.
Maloney said: “The lives of 100 million people have been ruined, and there is no way to know exactly how many have been killed. And one of the most shocking crimes that JIang has committed is the harvesting of organs from still-living bodies. In the early 2000s, we started getting news about this crime, and then we got a lot of evidence of live organ harvesting. Peaceful practitioners of Falun Gong were illegally imprisoned while they were still alive, their organs were then stolen. Authorities that commit this crime are military and state-funded hospitals. The source of organs is then sold on the black market. Therefore, this is entirely Jiang Zemin’s responsibility.”
Popular host Rick Jensen said, “When I first heard the news about the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners, I couldn’t believe it because it was ‘so cruel.'” But when I “read more of these descriptions and read more reports from journalists in China who risked their lives and escaped with the evidence … Oh my God, that’s totally the truth. It’s not just happening years ago. It’s actually happening.”
Later, Falun Gong practitioner Chen Hua talked about her experience.
Chen Hua has been studying Falun Gong for 25 years. A few days before Christmas in 1999, she sent a letter of petition to the Secretariat to end the persecution of Falun Gong, but she was arrested. Over the next five years, she was repeatedly arrested and persecuted.
Chen said that, through practicing Falun Gong, her mother miraculously recovered from terminal cancer and paralysis from a stroke. From then on, she was also attracted to the principles of “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” taught by Falun Gong and began to practice cultivation. However, former CCP general secretary Jiang Zemin launched the persecution of Falun Gong in July 1999, and her fate has been completely reversed.
“I lost my job,” she said. “We were also sent to a labor camp where we were forced to work in terrible conditions, working 16 hours a day. We had to do many things, like making artificial flowers, Christmas lights, and toys. I was shocked to learn that some of the toys we produced had Disney branding.
“In addition to forced labor, we were subjected to terrible torture. We were beaten by them, they didn’t feed us, didn’t let us sleep, etc. The most brutal thing I’ve ever endured was force-feeding. The warden and other inmates pinned me to the concrete floor, forcing me to drink highly concentrated salt water that can kill. I was tortured until I had a seizure. Over the next few days, I vomited blood and salt water, and I couldn’t eat, drink or talk. A male Falun Gong practitioner died after being force-fed in this way.”
Chen Hua said that the purpose of the CCP’s torture was to get people to give up practicing Falun Gong. So they want people “tortured to suffer and then declare to give up practicing Falun Gong. This is one of the very strange and cruel forms of torture they use.”
Chen Hua said from 1999 to 2004; she was imprisoned many times. It has been more than ten years since she came to the United States as a political refugee. She said, “I am grateful to the many people who helped me resettle in the free world of America. I used to think how happy I would be on the day Jiang Zemin died. However, when I learned the news that Jiang died yesterday, I can’t be happy at all because he started this persecution. The persecution is still going on. Countless Falun Gong practitioners in China are still being held in prison and tortured.”
She added, “I hope that more and more people in the West and Latvia understand what Falun Gong is and are fully clarified of the evil of the CCP, and help end the persecution of Falun Gong and its crimes against humans.”
Finally, Rick Jensen reminds everyone to join hands to help end the persecution of Falun Gong. Jensen said that when he went to see the Christmas parade in Elsmere, Delaware, last year, he saw a large number of Falun Gong followers participating, and he signed the petition demanding an end to the persecution of Falun Gong to support the fight against the persecution. He encouraged people to sign the request to stop the persecution of Falun Gong and publish it. Because this is not something troublesome that keeps people on the sidelines, but people are joining hands in the fight against genocide, against slavery to end the horrors that happened to Chen Hua and other peaceful Falun Gong practitioners.
