The CCP Uses Chinese New Year to Brainwash the World

[] All people in
the world have connections with China, which Chinese people refer to as
"the divine land." The five-thousand-year culture is particularly
attractive to foreigners. Their kindness and friendship toward the
Chinese people have frequently been abused by the Chinese Communist
Party (CCP) evil specter. The CCP sends performance groups to host
series of cultural exchange activities for the purpose of brainwashing
people in the world with its own values. It has found cultural exchange
activities are effective ways of brainwashing people and make them
confuse the authentic Chinese traditional culture with the CCP culture.
Such cultural activities laud the Chinese communist dictatorship and
create false images of the "peaceful rise" of China.


"The Same Song" performance show recently in Canada and the United
States was an example of the CCP exporting its party culture. According
to columnist Ling Feng, "The Same Song" was selected into a book "The
20th Century in Songs – Selected Chinese Songs in the Past 100 Years."
The book gave the theme song of the show, "The Same Song," the
following introduction:  "Composed in 1990, it was broadcast
before the live broadcast of the 11th Asian Sports Games opening
ceremony on China Central Television. The lyrics use poetic language to
express people's longing for peace and friendship. They express the
sincere wish of Chinese to live peacefully together with people in
other countries."

Ling Feng made a very good point when he asked what 1990 was like in
Mainland China. It was shortly after the 1989 Tiananmen Massacre. The
blood stains on Tiananmen Square had not completely washed away yet.
Many western countries placed sanctions against Mainland China Some
called for boycott of the Asian Games in Beijing. "The Same Song" was
written to paint a peaceful picture and deceive the Chinese people and
people in [the rest of] the world. It is a typical song for the CCP's
"Unifying Campaign." Two sentences of the lyrics were "Flowers told me
how you spent the years" and "Nobody misses sweet dreams." Not to
mention the family members of killed students, everyone, including
ordinary Beijing citizens, would tell you that the previous year had
been filled with blood instead of flowers; there had been nightmares
instead of sweet dreams. Many years later, this song became the song
used to persecute Falun Gong and mentally torture Falun Gong
practitioners. The CCP uses the song to forcefully brainwash Falun Gong
practitioners and forces them to sing "The Same Song" with the police.
Now it has been exported overseas. The CCP wants to do the same thing
overseas and coerce overseas Chinese who have enjoyed democracy and
freedom to sing "The Same Song' with the Chinese dictatorship.


In addition to hosting "The Same Song" performances in Canada and the
U.S., the CCP also launched a series of vaudevilles showcased as
"cultural exchange activities" It will send more than 10 cultural
groups and 500 artists to perform Chinese cultural programs in
Australia from January 27 to April 20 of 2006. It is by far the largest
Chinese cultural activity hosted by the CCP in Australia. The CCP also
plans to do the "Beijing 2008 Olympic Games Exhibition" to show model
and big pictures of Beijing's Olympic facilities.

Due to the human rights situation in China, many western countries
thought that Beijing didn't deserve to host the Olympic Games. Besides
many ordinary people, human rights organizations and some U.S.
congressmen were especially concerned. They said that granting Beijing
the 2008 Olympic Game was equivalent to rewarding the dictatorship. The
nuclear threat by Chinese General Zhu Chenghu against the U.S. last
year, the incident of Chinese communist policemen shooting harmless
unarmed villagers in Shanwei City, the escalating persecution of Falun
Gong, among other things, have made the world re-think the 2008 Beijing
Olympic Games. Some have even asked for taking the games away from
Beijing. In response, the CCP has been hosting Chinese cultural
festivals in various places in the world. The purpose is obvious. It is
trying to use Chinese folk arts and "The Same Song" to confuse people
and paint a rosy picture of itself. Western countries should be
