6. The Chinese Communist Party is famous for its long history of killing people and setting up fake scenes to slander the “enemy”
The Chinese Communist Party’s 70-year history is written in blood and lies. Through killing, the Chinese Communist Party suppresses social instability and discontent, in an attempt to quell the will of the Chinese people. But when the CCP found out that there was a group of people who were not afraid of its brutal acts of torture and murder – Falun Gong – the tactics they used were even more insane.
Before Jiang Zemin formally ordered the persecution of Falun Gong, the Chinese Communist Party had begun to prohibit, monitor, investigate, and fabricate things to accuse Falun Gong, it’s slanderous media also joined in.
When the slanderous and deceitful propaganda campaign did not seem to receive support from the people, and the persecution of Falun Gong was not effective enough, CCTV and the Xinhua News Agency – under Jiang Zemin’s instruction – started to “stage” the serious murder cases to blame Falun Gong.
Staged self-immolation on Tiananmen Square
On January 23, 2001, at Tiananmen Square, there was a “self-immolation” incident of 5 people. Within hours of the event, detailed footage was continuously broadcasting in the state media across China and the world. Reports claimed that the self-immolators were Falun Gong practitioners and focused on the image of a mother named Liu Chunling, who set herself and her daughter, Liu Siying, on fire.
However, when analyzing the slow-motion video broadcasted by CCTV, we can see Liu Chunling, who was said to have died from the fire, but in fact she was hit hard on the head by a man in a police coat. Actually, she did not die from fire but was killed by the Chinese Communist Party to keep her mouth shut .
Her daughter, Liu Siying, who participated in the self-immolation also suddenly passed away on March 17 after she appeared healthy on television and was said to be about to be discharged from the hospital. Her sudden death led many to deduce that, like her mother, Liu Siying was murdered by the Chinese Communist Party to prevent her from revealing the truth about the staged self-immolation incident.
Inside China, this self-immolation incident completed the purpose of the Chinese Communist Party to pull public opinion in opposition to Falun Gong. In addition to taking advantage of the image of a mother burning her daughter, the state media even fabricated false things like hundreds of Falun Gong practitioners cut their belly open, or “more than 30 innocent citizens were killed by psychotic Falun Gong practitioners”.
Slander Falun Gong for murder cases where the perpetrator has a history of mental illness
On December 16, 2001, Xinhua News Agency and CCTV continued to make headlines about a murder case, in which the killer named Fu Yibin had killed his father and wife. The report blatantly slandered Falun Gong from suicide to murder cases. CCTV directly interviewed Fu Yibin and he said: “I killed all of them. When I succeed in cultivation, my whole family will go to heaven and live a happily everlasting life”. Such a distorted logic cannot be found in any Falun Gong book. On the contrary, the main Falun Gong publication clearly states that, for practitioners, killing is absolutely prohibited.
Ms. Ma Ruijin, an acquaintance with the family of perpetrator Fu Yibin confirmed that he had a long history of mental illness and had lost his mind for many years. In 1993, he often wandered naked and family members could not control him. Evidence shows that he was mentally ill for almost 10 years before his murder.
On July 2, 2003, the website Xinhua.Net reported an unusual poisoning and quickly concluded a Falun Gong practitioner committed murder. On July 14, CCTV reported that 17 beggars had been poisoned and claimed the suspect was a Falun Gong follower.
Chen Fuzhao, who was involved in the murder, has been diagnosed as a longtime psychopath. Chen Fuzhao’s father, Cangnan District Medical Center, and the government of Longgang town, Cangnan district where Chen Fuzhao resides, have verified this fact. Before the poisoning murder happened, Chen’s father took him to Neian Mental Hospital for treatment.
However, Xinhua News Agency and CCTV deliberately ignored his mental illness history and instead attributed Chen’s eccentric behavior to practicing Falun Gong.
Investigations revealed that the 610 Office was behind this murder case. Reporters of the newspapers involved in the slander of Falun Gong deliberately ignored Chen’s mental illness and attributed his illogical claims to the practice of Falun Gong.
Practical evidences gathered by WOIPFG (World Organization to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong) show that:
- Xinhua News Agency and CCTV have chosen a number of media to exclusively cover news. All other media have been excluded.
- The fabricated news reports are carefully selected, including the fact that journalists signing under the post did not even participate in gathering the news.
- The police and 610 Office were directly behind this case. Xinhua News Agency reporters and those working in the selected special groups will participate in investigating and reporting the incident. When the case is over, they will be promoted or relocated. People who know about this deception have been warned by the CCP authorities to remain silent.
From Fu Yibin’s case to Chen Fuzhao’s case, evidence indicates that Jiang Zemin’s group made up the story to push the government’s campaign to slander and suppress Falun Gong.

Falun Gong is a Buddhist practice that prohibits killing and suicide. The founder of Falun Gong, Mr. Li Hongzhi, in his main work “Zhuan Falun” clearly states “For practitioners, we have set the strict requirement that they cannot kill lives”. Although Falun Gong’s teachings emphasize tolerance, compassion, and the prohibition of killing, CCP still blatantly uses the media to ridiculously attribute some murder cases to Falun Gong practitioners..
The case of a mother killing her 5-year-old daughter in the US was taken advantage of
On January 9, 2017, Ming Ming Chen, a 29-year-old Chinese woman who opened a Chinese restaurant in Ohio (USA) with her husband Liang Zhao, 34 years old, was arrested by the police on suspicion of killing their 5-year-old daughter. These two concealed the girl’s body in the restaurant, and then falsely reported to the police as “missing”. However, the incident was discovered by the police.
The case of a mother murdering a 5-year-old daughter in the United States was used by CCP to slander Falun Gong, https://time.com/5085766/ming-ming-chen-ohio-daughter-confession/
The CCP media immediately published the information: Ming Ming Chen was brainwashed by the “evil theory of Falun Gong” that she killed her daughter, and at the same time, the CCP propaganda machine simultaneously reported on “the Falun Gong fanatical member killed the little girl” to attack Falun Gong.
The Phoenix, the CCP propaganda agency, and a number of overseas Chinese-language websites also worked hard to convey this information. They are based on the information that Ming Ming Chen had registered as an asylum in the United States in the name of Falun Gong.
In fact, many Chinese in America know that the easiest form of applying for political asylum is to pretend to be a Falun Gong practitioner. In some states in the US, many Chinese people even secretly opened Falun Gong refugee instruction classes. In 2009, Ming Ming Chen impersonated a Falun Gong practitioner to do this. However, in the Immigration Court, the judge vetoed her case because it was “unreliable”.
After the denial in 2009, Chen continued to appeal to the US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. However, the judge of the US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit also denied her appeal and stated: Ming Ming Chen is not a Falun Gong practitioner.
The CCP’s propaganda to demonize Falun Gong is said to be unprecedented, even compared with the Cultural Revolution. A key reason is that it takes advantage of the entire media system of the whole country and abroad, including TV, radio, newspapers and even textbooks. And the easiest way to make people discriminate against Falun Gong is to fabricate or propagate “Falun Gong is lethal”. This has been done not only in China, but outside of China as well.
