The Confusing "Great One of the Nation" (excerpt)

March 23, 2021 18:32

-- by Jin Zhe, Voice of America



Washington —

The term "Great One of the Nation" was suddenly introduced last year by Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and President of the People's Republic of China.  The official Chinese media controlled by the CCP immediately launched commentary and propaganda.  This kind of propaganda has increased significantly in recent months.  On March 19, the "China Discipline Inspection and Supervision News" published an article that put forward another interpretation of "Great One of the Nation."  These explanations and propaganda have become a window for observers to observe the current political situation in China.


"Great One of the Nation" Is Confusing


According to the Xinhua News Agency, the authoritative news agency of the CCP, during a visit to Shaanxi in April 2020, when talking about the ecological problems of the Qinling Mountains, the CCP leader Xi Jinping mentioned "Great One of the Nation."  After that, the "Great One of the Nation" became a "high frequency phrase."  However, although the CCP’s propaganda department has carried out a lot of publicity on this "Great One of the Nation", it has not explained the origin of the phrase as Xi Jinping's own creation.  If it is, why did he create such a phrase looking like a classical Chinese wording?  Up to now, the CCP propaganda department and Xi Jinping himself have not been clear on these issues.


Many people are confused by the sudden appearance of this phrase "Great One of the Nation" through the mouth of Xi Jinping.  On March 12, 2021, China’s official Xinhuanet commented: “Finding the right coordinates for advancement in the ‘Great One of the Nation’,” which seems to indirectly acknowledge the existence of this confusion.


Earlier, on January 7, 2021, the Standing Committee of the Politburo of the CCP Central Committee held a meeting, attended by Xi Jinping, the General Secretary of the CCP Central Committee.  Chinese official media reported that: "The meeting emphasized that... we must keep in mind the overall strategy of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and the world's major changes unseen in a century, and firmly grasp the "Great One of the Nation"..."


On March 10, 2021, at the end of the 13th National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, which many Chinese people call the “Political Vase” of the Chinese Communist regime, Wang Yang, a member of the Standing Committee of the Politburo of the CCP Central Committee and Chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, delivered a speech putting forward an explanation of "Great One of the Nation": "’Great One of the Nation’ is the one who is responsible.  Standing at the key node of the historical intersection of the goals of struggle of the ‘two centenary’, the call of mission and responsibility are on our shoulders.  We must unite more closely around the CCP Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at the core.”


At present, the Chinese official media's propaganda about the "Great One of the Nation" continues...   However, up to now, the Chinese official media under the control of the CCP has been unclear about what the phrase "Great One of the Nation" means, its origin or creation process, as well as its thinking.


Wei Jingsheng: It Demonstrates the Posture of the Wolf Warriors


Wei Jingsheng, a veteran Chinese human rights and democracy activist, told the Voice of America that the so-called "Great One of the Nation" may have been fabricated by Xi Jinping, who has only an elementary school-level concept yet likes to show off his knowledge, or by his propaganda team that wants to compliment Xi Jinping.  What does it mean?  People can get a rough idea based on the words and deeds of Xi Jinping, who holds the power of the Chinese Communist Party, government, and military in recent years.


Wei Jingsheng said: "The "Great One of the Nation" illustrates a mentality.  In recent years, Xi Jinping has always been showing this egocentric mentality.  It is: we are very good, we are very big, we can bully others; if you make us a little bit unhappy, your Australia will not be allowed to export beef to us, you will not be allowed to export barley to us, etc.; I can bully you anytime and anywhere, and you could do nothing.  You see, European countries have bowed their heads to us; weren’t they known as powerful countries back then?  Now you have to bow your head obediently to us."


Wei Jingsheng went on to point out that since Xi Jinping came to power, especially in the past two years under his leadership, wolf warrior diplomacy has become the characteristic diplomacy of China, with the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs and its ambassadors abroad competing to show their wolf warrior posture to the international community.
