The rise and fall of Winnie the Pooh
Today I want to talk about the rise and fall of President Xi Jinping. People refer to him as Winnie the Pooh because that's who he looks like. He is what the song Mother of all Lies alludes to.
Initially the Falun Gong were hopeful Xi Jinping would be different. They were hopeful his anti corruption campaign within the Communit party of China would end the persecution of the Falun Gong. They were sadly disappointed. Once Xi Jinping became president he embraced the tenants of Communism and continued the persecution of the Falun Gong. He continued to destroy human rights and he expanded the Communist party's influence in western media. He used his anti corruption campaign to remove political rivals then launched the coronavirus.
As Xi Jinping intends to drop a two-term limit on the presidency, Winnie the pooh is the man who would be king. I will however point out that there is another way. Hong Kong has every right to independence just like Taiwan. Their Constitution entrenches that right.
Some local Hong Kongers thought the same way the Falun Gong did. Perhaps if we hold the Chinese Communist Party to their agreement, in 20 years time Communism in China will change. Not so. Communism will never change. Time simply reveals it's true motives.
Communist movements always hide behind the false banner of democracy. They cry for social justice and for democracy. Their democracy. Whenever a Communist government takes power they ban other political parties and implement a one party system. That is not a democracy.
North Korea calls itself the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Yet we all know there is no democracy in it. The Communists use of the word democracy is a lie. Just as all of their other claims are. Communism is the mother of all lies because the father of all lies is the author of it. Communism's end game is slavery. That is why the super rich fund it. They want to be the ones in control once slavery has been established. Nelson Mandela did the opposite.
James Connolly supported a free republic. North Korea is not it. Yet North Korea is not a global threat any more than Cuba is or Libya was. Communist China is a world threat because as my old friends from CUPW claim, the Communist Party of China are not true Communists.
When I worked for the Post Office I had a friend who thought I was a Communist for the same reason I thought he wasn't. We both believed in democracy and free speech. I found that somewhat ironic. I was a vocal opponent of FARC in Columbia. Knowing that, a National UR who I deeply respect came up to me and claimed the Communists in Red Square or Eastern Europe call themselves Communist but they aren't really Communists. I was shocked and said then what the hell are they because that is what Communism is. East Berlin is the prime example.
He said Cuba is the best model of Socialism that we have. No it's not I said. They have political prisoners. They don't outlaw religion but they discriminate against it. They only allow one political party and you can't be a member of that party if you are religious which means if you have a religious affiliation, you can never run for office.
I said the best model we have of socialism is the Kibbutz movement in Israel. All the profits go to raising the standard of living for everyone and people are free to come and go as they please. There are religious kibbutzim and nonreligious kibbutzim. It's run as a democracy which is what my friends in CUPW aspired to. No one except for Bill Gates aspires to totalitarianism.
As I keep emphasizing, true socialism can only exist within the framework of a free republic where civil liberty is protected by law. James Connolly understood that and Nelson Mandela implemented that. Xi Jinping opposes that. That is why he needs to be replaced.
