[The Epoch Times, February 21, 2021](Reported by Epoch Times reporter Xiao Lusheng) On February 20, the CCP rarely held a high-profile seminar on the 100th anniversary of the birth of former CCP Chairman Hua Guofeng. At the symposium, Mao Xinyu, the grandson of Mao Zedong, who had not appeared for a long time, appeared.
According to the CCTV news broadcast on the 20th, Wang Huning, Secretary of the Secretariat of the CPC Central Committee, and Han Zheng, Vice Premier of the State Council of the Communist Party of China, attended the Symposium on the 100th Anniversary of Hua Guofeng’s Birth. Sun Chunlan, Vice Premier of the State Council, and the Central Military Commission of the Communist Party of China Vice Chairman Zhang Youxia was also present.
In addition, Mao Xinyu, the grandson of Mao Zedong, the former leader of the Communist Party of China, and Liu Yuan, the son of former leader of the Communist Party of China Liu Shaoqi, also appeared. Mao Xinyu has not appeared for a long time. The last public appearance was in November 2019 with his daughter Mao Tianyi at a charity event.
At the symposium, Wang Huning made a speech, touting Hua Guofeng’s so-called revolutionary history, settling chaos, and saving his party. He also claimed that Mao Zedong commented on Hua Guofeng as “telling the truth and being an honest man,” and demanding that CCP members and cadres follow Xi Jinping asked, “Be cautious, be cautious at first, be cautious with friends,” etc.
In this regard, on February 21, the Liberty Times article stated that some analysts believe that Beijing’s high-profile commemoration of Hua Guofeng’s centenary is for Xi Jinping’s high-profile commemoration of the centenary of the founding of the Communist Party of China and pave the way for the smooth continuation of power at the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. The continuity of Xi Jinping’s dominance and arrogance has annoyed many red second generations. Mao Xinyu’s attendance at the meeting shows that Xi Jinping has the intention to win.
The French article stated that on the one hand, Xi Jinping needed to win over all the forces of the CCP, so that Mao Xinyu, who had been left out by Xi Jinping and other second-generation figures of the Red Army, appeared; on the other hand, the high-profile commemoration of Hua Guofeng was also regarded as “for Xi “This can be seen from Wang Huning’s speech.
In his speech, Wang Huning said that commemorating Hua Guofeng is to learn from his political character of firm party spirit and loyalty to the party, and to transfer this “political character” to Xi Jinping’s allegiance.
After the death of Mao Zedong, Hua Guofeng participated in the arrest of the Gang of Four, ended the Cultural Revolution, and became the top leader of the Chinese Communist Party’s political and military forces. He held the political slogan “Two Whats” during his ruling period. However, after 1980, Hua Guofeng finally lost power due to the conflicting political lines between Hua Guofeng and Deng Xiaoping, the former leader of the Chinese Communist Party. The “two whatevers” were denied and Hua was forced to leave the power core of the Chinese Communist Party.
Until the death of Hua Guofeng on August 20, 2008, Xinhuanet only briefly reported the news. Hua Guofeng has always been in a situation of not being paid attention to. This time the CCP held a high-profile Hua Guofeng commemorative event, which is relatively rare.
Hua Guofeng’s two secrets
Hua Guofeng also has two secrets. One is that he was once referred to as Mao Zedong’s eldest son by an article in Hong Kong’s “Open” magazine. On December 26, 2002, Hua Guofeng and Mao’s daughters Li Min, Li Ne and others went to Mao’s “memorial hall” to celebrate Mao’s longevity. The wreath and straps offered also read “Faithful Son Kingdom” The words “Feng Jing Wan”.
The other is that Hua Guofeng has already withdrawn from the CCP. As early as 2001, the Japanese “Asahi Shimbun” exposed the news that Hua Guofeng had resigned from the party. According to foreign reports, Hu Jintao deliberately presided over a meeting for this purpose. At the meeting, Hua Guofeng resolutely stated his attitude, even saying: “What is the difference between the Communist Party today and the Kuomintang in the past?”
Hua Guofeng said in his quitting party statement: Back then, the CCP overthrew the Kuomintang government under the slogan of “anti-corruption and anti-authoritarianism.” However, the CCP has been in power for more than 50 years, insisting on one-party dictatorship, suppressing human rights, depriving the people of freedom, corruption, and abusing justice, which is even worse than the Kuomintang government of the year.
