Is this the End of the Road for Comrade Xi Jinping?

-- Wei Jingsheng

 

 

A funny thing happened recently. It's not that Xi Jinping has a brain tumor, or that Li Keqiang is about to take over, but that Xi's Central Office issued an official document to deal with their old comrades, especially the old comrades who held leadership positions in the Chinese government. This really makes people laugh, also gloat a little. Xi Jinping has degenerated to the point where he has to guard against even the old CCP leaders who promoted him. Is this still the dictator who controls everything as the Hong Kong and Taiwan media said? There is such a huge gap in between.

 

Let's put aside the rumor of whether or not Xi is in control. Let us just try to figure out under what circumstances would he be unbearable to turn against his mentors and seniors? It must be because Xi was pushed and humiliated by his mentors and seniors in the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and felt that he lost some face, thus doing something like this to humiliate himself. Why didn't the CCP senior officials give him this face? He must have done something unbearably bad that must be corrected immediately or the consequences will be severe to result in the CCP senior officials not caring about faces but to "arbitrarily talk about the central government".

 

In order to be re-elected, Comrade Xi has carried out a series of perverse actions. Not only are the people angry and the public sentiment is boiling, and even the Chinese economy has entered a trend of rapid decline. Not only are China and the Chinese in a desperate situation, but the legitimacy of the Communist Party is also in a desperate situation where it is difficult to extricate itself. As there is no brave man within the Communist leadership to voice a different opinion, they had to intervene in the names of retired leaders to stop Xi, which fits what the common Chinese would say using Zhong Kui (a deity in Chinese mythology, traditionally regarded as a vanquisher of ghosts and evil beings) to fight against ghosts. This Zhong Kui within the CCP tradition is indeed effective and slapped Xis face to the degree that Xi had to order his decree to forbid "arbitrarily talking about the central government".

 

Regarding the CCP's tradition of senior leaders intervening in politics, I don't think it's all that bad. From the time of the Democracy Wall to my parole in Beijing in 1993, I have seen many veteran CCP officials "arbitrarily talking about the central government" against the politics and leaders of that time to a point that surpassed the so-called dissidents and elites. Among them, the highest-ranking official was already in the circle that has held leadership positions as mentioned in the latest decree from the central government. The depth of their resentment and the roughness of their language were characteristic of their rebel origin. When these words were publicly disseminated, they must have greatly influenced public opinion.

 

Why does this happen? It doesn't seem like they were in this position when they were in power. It is due to the viewing angle being different. After all, they were initially they fooled into the Chinese Communist Party due to their motive to create a better life for the Chinese people. Years of brainwashing made them believe that only by following the CCP leaders, even if they did a lot of ridiculous things such as the Great Leap Forward, which boasted producing ten thousand catties per Chinese acre (i.e. 1/6 Acre), etc., could China achieve this goal. After they stepped down, their observations were completely different. When observing things from the perspective of ordinary Chinese, they realized that the CCP and its leaders have been bringing this country and the people to a desperate situation. However, besides cursing a few words, they can do nothing. This only increases their inner resentment.

 

After I arrived in the United States, some of the elder sisters within the CCP leadership, as my father called them, wanted to organize a group to visit me in the United States. When I asked why, he said that these elder sisters had said: Jingsheng is doing what we wanted to do when we were young but failed to do it. This shows that their introspection was deeper than people think. Restoring their position among the common Chinese has brought their original aspirations back to them.

 

Now not only the Chinese society, but also the people within the CCP could not tolerate Xi Jinpings perversion. But the fact that there is no brave man within the CCP leadership resulted the complaints of these retired leaders becoming a banner of struggle within the CCP and a rallying cry for the opposition, which in turn is threatening Xi Jinping's policy continuing his perversion, including his intention to maintain his leadership during the 20th Congress of the CCP. This is what makes Xi Jinping upset.

 

Under Xi Jinping's modern surveillance, it is difficult for CCP officials to assemble an anti-Xi alliance even if they are at Wang Qishan's level. In this regard, the speculation of the Hong Kong and Taiwan media is still quite reliable. But the appearance of the retired senior CCP leaders unexpectedly produced a great rallying effect. This is a wave of storm that Xi Jinping cannot resist, and it has had a subversive effect on the next stage of the internal struggle within the CCP. Even if the central government issued a red-headed decree, it could not quell the storm. It seems that we will be able to watch a good show in the second half of this year.

小习同志这是穷途末路了吗?

-- 魏京生

 

 

最近发生了一件让人忍俊不禁的事儿。不是小习患脑瘤,也不是李克强要接班,而是小习的中央办公厅发正式文件,要修理老同志了,特别点名曾担任领导职务的老同志。这真的让人忍俊不禁,还兼代有点儿幸灾乐祸。他已经堕落到了连提拔自己的老领导都要防范,这还是港台媒体所说的,掌控一切的那个独裁者吗?表情落差太大了吧。

 

先把是否掌控一切这种谣言放下不表。就说在什么情况下,会忍无可忍要和自己的恩师兼前辈们翻脸?那一定是被逼急了,受到了老师和家长的羞辱,脸没地方搁了,气急败坏才会在大众面前丢这个脸。老前辈们为什么不给他这个脸呢?一定是他干了什么让人难以忍受的坏事,必须立刻加以纠正,否则后果严重,才让老人们顾不得脸面妄议中央了。

 

小习同志为了连任,搞的一系列倒行逆施,不但天怒人怨,民情沸腾,而且连经济也进入了快速下滑的趋势。不但国家和人民陷入绝境,就连共产党的合法性,也陷入了难以自拔的绝境。中共党内竟无一人是男儿,只好打着老人的旗号出来阻止。也就是老百姓们说的,为了打鬼借助钟馗了。这个钟馗在共产党的传统中还真是有料,竟然打得小鬼脸都没地儿搁了,直接跳脚发红头文件说,不得妄议中央。

 

说起中共老人干政的传统,我倒认为不全是坏事。从民主墙时期到九三年我假释在北京,见识过不少老干部对当时的政治和领导人,妄议中央到了超过所谓异议精英的地步。其中级别最高的,已经是这次中央文件所说的担任过领导职位的圈子了。其怨愤之深,语言之粗糙,倒是很有造反出身的特色。而且公开地散布,肯定很大程度地影响了社会舆论。

 

为什么会有这种现象呢?他们在位的时候好像不是这种立场呀。这就是观察角度不同的原因了。毕竟他们当初被忽悠进共产党的动机,还是为中国人民创造一个美好的生活。多年的洗脑让他们认为只有跟着共产党的领袖,哪怕干很多荒谬绝伦的事情,比如亩产万斤的大跃进等等,才能达到这个目标。下台后的观察完全不同了,从老百姓的角度观察和看待事情,才使他们醒悟到:这个党和它的领袖正在把国家和人民带入绝境。可他们除了骂几句以外,已经无能为力了。这更增加了他们内心的愤懑。

 

在我到达美国之后,我父亲所称的一些党内老大姐们,要组团来美国看望我。我问为什么,他说老大姐们说:京生所干的是我们年轻时想干而没干成的事业。这说明他们的反省比人们想象的还要深刻。恢复老百姓的立场,让他们回到了他们的初心。

 

现在不但社会上,而且党内对习近平的倒行逆施已经忍无可忍。但是党内更无一人是男儿的现状,使得这些老人的牢骚,成为了党内斗争的一面旗帜,成为了反对派们的集结号,威胁到了习近平继续倒行逆施的政策路线,包括他的二十大连任的安排。这才是让习近平跳脚的原因。

 

在习近平的现代化监控之下,就是王岐山这种级别的官员,也很难去集结反习的联盟。这一点港台媒体的猜测还是很靠谱的。但是老人帮的出面,意外地产生了很大的集结号效应。这是习近平无法抵挡的一波暴风骤雨,对下一步党内斗争的局面,产生了颠覆性的效果。即使中央办公厅下红头文件,也无法平息这一波暴风骤雨。看来下半年大家都有好戏看了。
