On the morning of April 20th, Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leader Hu Jintao visited the White House. At the welcoming ceremony on the south lawn, Falun Gong practitioner Wenyi Wang unfurled a yellow banner after President Bush's speech. She also shouted messages in both Chinese and English including, "Falun Dafa is good," and "Stop the persecution of Falun Gong." After a protest lasting more than two minutes, she was taken away by security.
Whether or not one agrees with the methods Ms. Wang used to protest, her reason for protesting is because the Chinese Communist Regime has been persecuting over 100 million Falun Gong practitioners for the last seven years. Clearwisdom has documented over 20,000 cases of persecution, with 2,872 verified deaths. The recent discovery of the organ harvesting concentration camps across China is currently under investigation, with potentially tens of thousands of people being massacred in these camps.
The Chinese Communist Regime has used Ms. Wang's protest as a way to continue to slander and incite hatred towards Falun Gong in Chinese media, labelling Falun Gong as "anti-Chinese political group" and "destroyer of the relationship between China and the US."
Chinese people have always had a love for their people and culture, as do other nationalities around the world. The Chinese culture has a history of over 5,000 years. The Chinese Communist Party has been ruling China for just over 50 years. The Chinese Communist Party is not China. CCP movements like the Great Cultural Revolution in the 1960's and 1970's were just that, revolting against Chinese culture. The Chinese Communist Party is the number one destroyer of the Chinese culture. Loving the Chinese Communist Party is certainly not loving Chinese culture.
Exposing the crimes of the Chinese Communist Party does not equate to being "anti-Chinese." The CCP, through its many movements, has combined the two very different concepts of the CCP and China into one. When Chinese people think of China, they automatically think of the Chinese Communist Party, and vice versa. This is a trick the CCP is playing in order to manipulate this love Chinese people have for their people and culture. When the CCP wants to attack someone, they often use the label "anti-Chinese" to incite hatred in the people, as Chinese people have a deep love for their people and culture.
The relationship between China and the US certainly is not the relationship between the Chinese Communist Party and the US. The relationship that the CCP wants to have with the US is to have the US government and society completely ignore all human rights violations by the CCP, and unconditionally accept and cooperate with the CCP. The protest by Wenyi Wang was a call to end human rights abuses by the Chinese Communist Party. It was also a call on the US government and people to not overlook the human rights abuses committed by the CCP.
Being critical of the government is not being against the nation. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Gandhi, and Rosa Parks are all examples of people in history who stood up and spoke out against human rights violations and unjust actions and policies by their respective governments. They were all arrested and jailed for their protests, but today they are seen as national heroes.
By the CCP's reaction to the protest at the White House of calling on its media to use this event to further slander Falun Gong, while continuing to harvest organs from live Falun Gong practitioners and other despicable persecutory methods, we can see that the CCP has no intentions of changing its ways and will only continue to escalate its human rights abuses. This is something that all media should be clear on, as articles written making Falun Gong appear to be the aggressor and the CCP the victim, is in fact aiding in the CCP's human rights abuses by twisting the facts.
