Quotes of the Day: Communist Oppression in China

The ladies speak out.

From the wife of a Chinese democracy and human rights activist:
“We, the Chinese human-rights activists, are like the Jews were in Nazi Germany. We can be arrested, jailed, killed at any moment at the Communist Party’s whim. Why the Western media, political leaders, and intellectuals do not support us more is a mystery to us. When we all disappear, you will ask yourself why you did not do more. But it will be too late then.”
From 86-year-old Chinese economics professor Feng Lanrui, who left the CCP after the Tiananmen massacre:
“We are like everybody else on earth ... We want the same democracy you have. We know perfectly well what a democracy is. We do not want a repressive regime in the name of so-called ‘Chinese characteristics.’”
READ THE WHOLE THING. Read it, and don't you dare tell me that democracy is not culturally compatible for Asians. That's multicultural garbage too often used to excuse Asian tyrannies and abandon Asian democrats. Read it, and don't you dare tell me that Communism is not one of the most horrifying evils ever perpetrated by human beings on their fellow man.

HI Thanks for bringing this issue more into the light. The horror story of China is the Genocide of the peaceful 100 million Falun Gong.

“China’s Gestapo” Marks a Decade
Official government websites, Chinese lawyers cite torture, surveillance by secret agency

New York—Ten years after its creation by fiat on June 10, 1999, the extralegal 6-10 Office continues to lead the Chinese Communist Party’s violent campaign to eradicate the Falun Gong spiritual group, the Falun Dafa Information Center said on Tuesday.

Testimony from torture survivors, human rights lawyers, and defectors, as well as official Chinese government websites, highlight the exceptional powers still exercised by the largely secret agency.

“The 6-10 office is just like Hitler’s Gestapo,” says Guo Guoting, a Chinese human rights lawyer in exile. “They are powerful and they got enough financial support from the government so…they secretly control all the Falun Gong practitioners in their local areas.”
