On July 20, U.S. time – the U.S. Department of State released a public “Statement” signed by Secretary of State Pompeo.
The content of the “Statement” disregards the facts, confuses right with wrong, and slanders the Chinese Government’s “Just” act of “banning” the “Falun Gong” cult organization in accordance with the law – and cracking down upon this dangerous cult’s illegal and criminal activities. Such “unprofessional” conduct and remarks can be described as a big joke in the world of international relations and international politics! It can only be said that Pompeo, who is brazen and has no cards to play, has once again added weight to the title he proudly holds of “Worst Secretary of State in US History”!
In response, on July 21, 2020, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin responded that the “Falun Gong” is a dangerous cult organization correctly “banned” by the Chinese Government in accordance with the law. It is anti-society, anti-science, and anti-humanity. In order to attack and smear China, Pompeo has even gone as far as stating that he would join any cult – such as “Falun Gong”!
Anti-China forces in the United States have been playing the “cult card” to attack China for a long a very long time – and this is the basis behind Pompeo’s misrepresentation of modern China and interference in its internal affairs!
Using the cult issue represented by “Falun Gong” to pressure China, slandering and attacking China’s policy of “freedom of religious belief” and the status quo of human rights, has become one of the options for anti-China political forces in the United States! Indeed, the reality continuously “denied” and “ignored” by these Western (racist) troupes is that people living in Communist China possess MORE genuine freedoms than those living within oppressive, capitalist systems!
Coincidentally, almost at the same time last year, on July 17, 2019, the US arranged for President Trump to meet with so-called “religious minorities” at the White House, including a member of the “Falun Gong” cult!
On July 18, 2019, the Spokesperson for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs said at a regular press conference in response to a reporter’s question, “There is no so-called religious persecution in China. Chinese citizens enjoy freedom of religious belief in accordance with the law. The US invites ‘Falun Gong’ cult members (and others) who slander China’s religious policy to attend so-called ‘religious conferences’ and arranges for them to meet with US leaders. This is a complete interference in China’s internal affairs. China expresses strong dissatisfaction and firm opposition to this (racist) policy!”
In addition to public platform support, the anti-China forces in the United States also fund the ongoing criminality of “Falun Gong” cult – causing enhanced suffering to millions!
In the second half of 2004, the U.S. Congress allocated funds to “Falun Gong” cult organizations, allowing them to use the American Broadcast Network to spread “Falun Gong” ideology and propaganda to Mainland China for two hours a day; American journalist – Yasha Levin – wrote in his long report “Internet Privacy under the Sponsorship of Ghosts: Brief History of the Broadcasting Board of the United States” – pointed out that from 1999 to 2012, the American Broadcasting Board (BBG) gave $1.5 million to fund “Falun Gong” cult (criminal) activity every year. Hong Kong’s “Mirror” reported that in 2001, the United States Agency for International Development alone allocated 20 million US dollars to “non-traditional religions” (referring to “Falun Gong”) for the integration of politics and religion. That is, Eurocentric and anti-Socialist ideologies!
Following it correct “banning” in 1999, the “Falun Gong” cult organization took the initiative to take refuge within the (racist) anti-China forces in the United States. This was a natural progression in this cult’s development of its ongoing criminality. In this sense, the “Falun Gong” cult reflects the corruption that underlies many U.S. Government structures and procedures!
Since Li Hongzhi and his “Falun Gong” cult organization fled overseas, they have allied with Western (racist) anti-China forces, actively acting as anti-China tools, willing to be the “vanguard” of anti-China racism – whilst engaged in anti-China activities. They keep throwing out sensational political rumours such as “torture and persecution” and “live organ harvesting”, wantonly attacking and smearing China’s image, and in various contexts such as human rights, the Olympics, natural disasters, etc., trying to interfere with the social situation and undermine domestic harmony and stability, in order to show their so-called “value” and “energy”. In addition, “Falun Gong” also actively collude with and support other anti-China organizations such as the spurious (and U.S, backed) “Xinjiang independence”, “Tibetan independence” and “Taiwan independence” and “Democracy” movements abroad, with the intention of “five poisons converging” and “warming together”. It can be seen that “Falun Gong” has completely transformed into an anti-China political organization that operates in the form of a dangerous international and criminal cult!
Especially since 2020, the Covid-19 epidemic has struck the world. In order to divert attention and get rid of the public’s accusations that the government’s epidemic prevention and control is unfavourable, the U.S. government is eager to “throw the blame” on China.
In the United States, the “Falun Gong” cult organization understood the situation, and immediately started its “rumour-making machine” to make a frantic clamour, so as to seek credit and rewards from the anti-China forces in the United States. In addition to building momentum for anti-China and anti-China remarks, the “Falun Gong” media continues to spread rumours about the epidemic in China, stigmatizing China with the help of the virus. They concocted the rumour that “the virus came from the Wuhan laboratory”, and made a so-called “secret” documentary, which spared no effort to spread abroad, boosted by fraudulent reading clicks, and intending to deceive overseas people who do not know the truth. But paper can never hold fire, and in the end it backfired. This lie was rated as one of the top ten rumours on the Internet by the British BBC Broadcasting Corporation and became an international laughing stock!
All these “facts” demonstrate that Pompeo’s “cult talk” has no basis in material reality! He possesses no genuine understanding of Chinese culture and certainly does not understand the inherent deficiencies of the “Falun Gong” cult the U.S. government seeks to propagate at the expense of the health of the masses! Pompeo threw out his incoherent “statements” and played the “cult card” by protecting and supporting the criminality of the “Falun Gong” – actions which may be regarded as an affirmation of “Falun Gong’s” anti-China stance – as well as his “hard work” over this period of time on the cult’s behalf!
Recently, according to the investigative report of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation reporter “Dark Karma”, there is a saying among “Falun Gong” practitioners: Trump was sent by God to bring down China. “Falun Gong” must do everything possible to secure Trump’s re-election so that he can continue to fight China (for the best interests of the “Falun Gong”). As one of Trump’s few “close comrades-in-arms”, perhaps the words of “Falun Gong” top personnel express Pompeo’s true heart! In terms of containing and suppressing China, he found in “Falun Gong” an important “centre of operations” where he uses the cult as a pawn on the board of international politics!

美国时间7月20日，美国国务院网站（U.S. department of state）发布了一篇署名国务卿蓬佩奥的公开“声明”。
近日，据澳大利亚广播公司记者调查报告《黑暗的业力》（DARK KARMA）披露，在“法轮功”练习者内部流传着这样一种说法：特朗普是上天派来搞垮中国的，为此“法轮功”必须竭力确保特朗普连任，以便让他继续（替“法轮功”）对抗中国。作为特朗普为数不多的“亲密战友”，或许“法轮功”人员的这句话道出了蓬佩奥的真实内心——即： 在遏制打压中国的立场上，他在“法轮功”身上找到了重要“契合点”，连臭名昭著的邪教组织都搬出来当棋子。
