A recent NBC report criticizing The Epoch Times repeatedly emphasized the publication’s anti-communism, with the clear implications that its stance was anachronistic, paranoid, or unwarranted. Unfortunately, such views are commonplace in today’s West, certainly on the Left, but also on much of the “Right.”
The NBC article included the amazing paragraph: “In 2005, The Epoch Times released its greatest salvo, publishing the ‘Nine Commentaries,’ a widely distributed book-length series of anonymous editorials that it claimed exposed the Chinese Communist Party’s ‘massive crimes’ and ‘attempts to eradicate all traditional morality and religious belief.’”
Multiple reputable sources, including the famous “Black Book on Communism,” written mainly by academic ex-communists, assert that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is responsible for at least 65 million deaths during its seventy years of bloody reign. This adds to the full death toll of communism, which the authors show was at least 100 million.
