China’s state-run Global Times pushed ahead with the regime’s revisionism of the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre on Friday by insisting what actually happened 32 years ago was not the brutal suppression of pro-democracy youth, but an expression of the “Chinese people’s confidence” in the glorious leadership of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
The astonishing editorial presented the Tiananmen massacre as a benefit to the Chinese people because it taught them to appreciate “socialist reforms” instead of “blindly following Western values.”
The Global Times said “facts speak louder than words” when looking at China’s history over the three decades since the Communist Party consolidated its grip on power by murdering thousands of innocent people on June 4, 1989:
More than three decades have passed by. Facts speak louder than words. China has embarked on a socialist path with Chinese characteristics and made remarkable progress that amazed the world.
