SARS Reveals the Deceitful Tradition of the Chinese Communist Party


PureInsight | May 5, 2003

[] After their long period of secretiveness, the Jiang Zemin regime has at long last acknowledged that they delayed prevention and control of the spread of SARS. However, they still have not been candid about the fact that they concealed the news of SARS from the world and their own people. Meanwhile, they pledged to provide updates on SARS infections in China in a more timely manner. It's a relatively insignificant concession, considering that not only had the news of the SARS outbreak in China already spread worldwide, but the SARS virus itself had spread beyond China's borders, and that the world was putting a tremendous amount of pressure on the regime to come forward with the truth. The fallout included cancellations of state visits, postponement of a number of international activities, halting travel to China, impacting tourism negatively, and so on.

Two prominent international magazines, Germany's Stars and the US' Time, in response to the SARS infection numbers published by the Chinese government, were not convinced that the numbers released by the Chinese government reflected the actual number of SARS infections in China. In fact, Time magazine published a statement, signed by a Beijing doctor, who revealed that Beijing's No.309 Hospital, one of the major medical treatment centers for SARS, had 60 SARS patients, of whom seven had died. This number significantly exceeded the "4 deaths in Beijing" admitted to by the Chinese government at the time the article was published. Why would the Chinese government try to conceal something as serious as its own public health crisis, and lie to the Chinese people and the rest of the world?

Many major historic events have demonstrated that the Chinese Communist Party "habitually" conceals the truth and misleads the world's people through deceptive lies. During the 60's "natural catastrophes" plagued China for three years. Foreign experts on Chinese affairs scrutinized the circumstances of these disasters and found that during those three years more than 20 million people died of unnatural deaths. To put it bluntly, 20 million Chinese died of hunger. However, the Chinese media at that time remained silent as if so many people dying of hunger did not count. The only noteworthy Chinese media reports were no more than propaganda, praising "The Main Revolution Route," "The Great Leap Forward" and "The People's Public Community," and so on. In the mind of the government-controlled Chinese media the "great honorable Chinese Communist Party" can do no wrong; that is, it is infallible. The people suffered under extreme terror tactics, and thus over a billion Chinese people were too afraid to speak out against the government's decision to deceive. No one was willing to reveal the truth of the famine in China.

The Tiananmen massacre that occurred in 1989 is an unforgettable event for everyone. Despite the fact that worldwide several billions of people witnessed on TV how the Chinese armed forces shot and ran tanks over unarmed college students and citizens who appealed peacefully for democracy, the Chinese government's representative shamelessly announced that not a single person was slain at Tiananmen Square. The Chinese Communist Party thus fully displayed its willingness to lie despite the clear evidence. Western societies, because of pressure from their people, imposed economic sanctions on China, and encouraged Chinese students that protested on June 4 at the Tiananmen Square to seek political asylum.

For the past four years, the Chinese Communist Party has brutally persecuted Falun Gong and Falun Gong practitioners. The Chinese regime has spared no expense in using its state-run media to wage an enormous campaign that disseminated deceitful information to influence, persuade and stir up people's hatred against Falun Gong practitioners who live by the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance, as well as to block the truth about Falun Gong from the Chinese people. The Chinese Communist Party has given new meaning to the word "sscoundrel." Tens of millions of Chinese citizens practice Falun Gong. They wish no more than to cultivate their minds and to be of higher morals. Such behavior benefits the country as well as their fellow citizens. However, the overwhelming popularity of Falun Gong made Jiang Zemin insanely jealous. His wanton jealousy led to a nationwide suppression and massacre of Falun Gong practitioners. According to an Australian reporter, more than half of the people locked up in China's forced labor camps are Falun Gong practitioners. The "610" offices were established at both the central and local government level to persecute Falun Gong. A large number of gangsters and low-lifes were hired to torture law-abiding, peaceful Falun Gong practitioners. It has been reported that during the past four years, more than 100,000 Falun Gong practitioners have been imprisoned or sent to forced labor camps, and an unofficial number of Falun Gong practitioners that have been killed is between one and two thousand. The Chinese Communist Party spends one forth of the country's financial resources on persecuting Falun Gong and Falun Gong practitioners.

The Chinese Communist Party's criminal behavior and deceitful lies have not abated. Perhaps it is only through deceitful lies, extreme terror tactics and concealment of the truth that a dictatorial government can survive. Mankind has entered the 21st century. Chinese people are becoming increasingly sober and rational. More and more countries in the world take careful note of the problems in China; after all, it is the country with the largest population in this world. The day is near when the truth about China's injustices will be fully told to the world.
