Centenary of the Chinese Communist Party

President Xi Jinping of People’s Republic of China

On July 1, 2021, President Xi Jinping, the leader of the Chinese Communist Party and the People’s Republic of China, gave a 65-minute long speech to an audience of 70,000. During the 100th year anniversary which was held at Tiananmen Square, former and current top officials of the CCP and the government came together for the light shows, flypast of Chinese aircrafts, medal awards, and the speech by President Xi Jinping. In his speech, President Xi exclaimed the struggles the party had to endure to prosper, and that the future is bright for them. President Xi’s speech was cheered on by the audience as he pushed forward for the one-China principle, “Resolving the Taiwan question and realizing China’s complete reunification is a historic mission and an unshakable commitment of the Communist Party of China.” In response to the speech, a Taiwan official released a statement to combat the CCP’s rhetoric of Taiwan, “Beijing should introduce democratic reforms, such as party competition, and respect for human rights while behaving as a responsible regional player.” CCP’s rhetoric not only angered Taiwan but also angered the Western media. President Xi exclaimed,

“We have never bullied, oppressed, or subjugated the people of any other country, and we never will. By the same token, we will never allow any foreign force to bully, oppress, or subjugate us. Anyone who would attempt to do so will find themselves on a collision course with a great wall of steel forged by over 1.4 billion Chinese people.”

In the Western media, President Xi’s statement “collision course” was widely translated as “heads bashed bloody”, causing distress and wide confusion. Given the difficulty translating Chinese to English, the specific words will differ in definition, and further assessments are required to investigate the factuality of the translation. However, President Xi did engage in criticism of the Western powers over the course of his speech, promoting false narratives and warnings.
