Recently, Hu Xijin, former editor-in-chief and Chinese Communist Party (CCP) secretary of Global Time, an English-language newspaper attached to the official party organ, Peoples Daily, commented on Weibo about his ultra-nationalist views on Nancy Pelosi’s trip to Taiwan.
Hu said, “It would be a good reason to wage war,” and then commented on his Twitter account on July 30, 2022, that the U.S. military planes in the entourage should be shot down.
This former journalist maintains a fan base of 25 million Chinese nationalists on his Weibo account and more than half a million followers on Twitter which significantly impacts CCP decisions at the national level.
However, just when it seemed that Chinese nationalism had reached an extreme with Hu Xijin’s views, Ren Yi, a Harvard-educated Chinese blogger and grandson of Ren Zhongyi, a communist leader during Den Xiaoping’s reforms, entered the scene.
Yi, who calls himself Chairman Rabbit, told his 1.8 million rabid fans on Weibo that Hu Xijin is too loud, and he will make people think that China’s actions are not enough, which is terrible for the morale of the Communist Party.
Chairman Rabbit clarified that Xijin is considered a spokesman for Beijing in the West and could not give a weak stance about the greatness of the CPC.
The debate on Weibo over U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosis’ trip to Taiwan empowers national-totalitarian thinking.
Classics of Marxism stimulated developmental nationalism in China
Mao Tse Tung declared: “The revolution of the ‘new democracy’ differs from the socialist revolution because it destroys the domination of the traitorous imperialists, but it does not destroy capitalism capable of contributing to the nationalist struggle.'”
For Karl Marx, the developmental nationalists in China were defenders of national integrity. Of course, they further entered into the Bolshevik principle of “tactics,” based on the Leninist idea that communism advances two steps backward, one step forward.
Weibo censures anti-nationalist and democratic thinking on its pages
Paired with the Chinese nationalist past of the Kuomintang, the theoretical views of the classicists of Marxism, and the pragmatic principles of Russian Leninism, today’s Chinese are advancing through a clutter of false policies.
The CCP has destroyed tradition and brought to the country the fruits of international communism. As a result, enshrining generations of citizens befuddled by deconstructed history to suit its agenda.
Just look at how the anti-extradition movement in Hong Kong, an arch enemy of the CCP, has exposed the lie of the red slogan, “one country, two systems,” an issue that has set off alarm bells among Taiwanese voters for the November local elections.
They have demanded their electoral candidates to sign the commitment to “resist the CCP,” an excellent goal to achieve independence from the Kuomintang.
Weibo recently censured the Chinese writer, Du Zijian, who stated, “China’s biggest problem is always thinking about becoming a great global power.” Immediately, trolls on social networks caused an uproar, inflamed by his words.
Du Zijian had meant that his country’s true path was through tradition and away from the developmental principles of Chinese nationalism and communism, which ceased to work for the nation when they stripped man of his Heaven-Earth relationship.
Other comments by Du Zijian read, “The country is prosperous, the people are prosperous, everyone has dignity, everyone has a life, and there are smiling faces everywhere, why want to liberate the world?” asks Zijian questioning the global infiltration of the CCP.
But the answer lies in the thrust of the Kuomintang and then the arrival of communism, which enthroned among all the evil of the red devil.
Sun Yat Sen, the first president of the Republic of China and founder of the Kuomintang, was reported as saying the Bolshevik revolution was a nationalist struggle. We did not know that Russia was fighting for nationalism at that time. Moreover, the communism in its early stage is in line with our People’s Life Principle.
