Communist Party marks centenary: Xi Jinping vows China will never be bullied


BEIJING — China will not be bullied, and anybody who tries would suffer "broken skulls and carnage in front of the iron Great Wall of the 1.4 billion Chinese people," according to President Xi Jinping, who spoke at a huge gathering Thursday to commemorate the ruling Communist Party's centennial. Xi spoke from the balcony of Tiananmen Gate, wearing a grey buttoned-up suit similar to Mao Zedong's, highlighting the party's role in bringing China to worldwide prominence and stating that it would never be split from the people. Xi, who is also the party's chairman and the military's commander-in-chief, also stated that China has restored calm in Hong Kong following anti-government demonstrations in the semi-autonomous city in 2019 and reaffirmed Beijing's resolve to bring self-governing Taiwan under its control. But it was when he portrayed the party as the force that had restored China's dignity after gaining power amid civil war in 1949 that he drew the most acclaim.
Xi stated, "The Chinese people have a great sense of pride and self-confidence." "In the past, present, or future, we have never bullied, mistreated, or enslaved the people of another country."
"At the same time, the Chinese people will not allow any foreign force to bully, oppress, or enslave us, and anybody who tries will suffer broken skulls and bloodshed in front of the 1.4 billion Chinese people's iron Great Wall," Xi stated. China is embroiled in a developing battle with the United States for global power status, and has clashed with India along their disputed border, according to Xi. China also claims uninhabited Japanese islands, as well as nearly the whole South China Sea, and threatens to attack Taiwan, with whom the United States has improved ties and increased weapons sales.
