Jiang Zemin Makes Debut In CCP’s 2015 Spring Festival Gala Spoof
Over the past two years, netizen “Kong Jiayi" launched
the Kong Spring Festival Gala which mocks the Chinese
Communist Party (CCP)’s Spring Festival Gala.
Recently the 2015 Kong Spring Festival Gala
Former CCP leader Jiang Zemin was again
the target of spoofs.
Meanwhile a series of cartoons mocking Jiang Zemin
were uploaded online.
Analysts believe that Chinese people’s high-profile
expression of disgust and hatred against Jiang indicates
the Jiang regime has completely lost the support
of the people.
The 2015 Kong Spring Festival Gala included 15 programs.
They all reference political and news events that took place
last year, such as the anti-prostitution in Dongguan,
the Kunming Train Station attacks, the CCTV Reporter
Rui Chenggang incident, the Beijing haze, the Hong Kong
Umbrella Movement and more.
The opening song and dance performance,
“My Dream of China" was performed by Minister Liu,
alluding to Liu Zhijun, Minster of Ministry of Railways.
Dancers are from the new Red Chambers crew.
“Chinese People Need to be Controlled" was performed
by Father and Son, alluding to the Hong Kong star
Jackie Chan and his son.
The media had reported that Liu Zhijun lived
a shockingly corrupt life style.
He slept with mistresses into the double digits.
Hong Kong martial arts actor Jackie Chan once
loudly stated “Chinese people need to be controlled"
and was included on the “100 China Scums" list in 2012.
His son Jaycee was arrested last year for drug possession.
In addition, a short drama, “Try to Touch Me” performed
by Ms. Guo, alluded to the Guo Meimei incident
in which she flaunted her wealth.
The new historical drama “Lianpo Is Old" starred
Senior Jiang alluded to the dying and hopeless Jiang Zemin.
Shenzhen College student Li Xiaowan: “The producer
of ‘The Kong Spring Festival Gala’ is very talented.
The programs do not have many words,
but are filled with irony.
You can understand China through each of the programs.
It is much better than the CCTV Spring Festival Gala that
has been praising the CCP and deceiving Chinese people."
“CCTV Spring Festival Gala" has been dominating
the Chinese New Year prime time television since 1983.
A private survey in 2011 showed that more than 70 percent
of people indicated they were dissatisfied or did not watch
the “CCTV Spring Festival Gala" and only five percent
of the public indicated they were “satisfied."
Some netizens joked, “In the future it would be shameful
to perform on the Spring Festival Gala.
People would curse, ‘You’re on the Spring Festival Gala.
Your whole family gets on the Spring Festival Gala!!!'"
Jiang Zemin, involved in a variety of scandals recently,
was mocked in the Kong’s 2015 Spring Festival Gala.
He was also mocked during last year’s gala.
In a 2014 history drama “The Changjiang River Flows East,
People Drink Dead Pig Soup,"
a picture of Jiang lying on the Changjiang River like a frog
was under a picture of dead pig.
In addition to the “Kong Spring Festival Gala,"
three posters from the “Shanghai Fudan University Mountain
Climbing Association" are spreading widely on Sina blogs.
The posters include phrases with “I Do Not Know
How High It Is," “Run Faster Than Anyone Else”
and “A Little Life Experience."
The posters also had Jiang Zemin’s signature
On Jan. 25 and Jan. 29 Sina blogger “Xiaomen Daily",
who has 80,002 followers, published a picture of a cat
wearing a pair of black-rimmed glasses, a set of cartoons
applied to packaging with the face of Jiang Zemin
wearing his staple glasses, and a picture of Jiang Zemin
scolding a Hong Kong reporter years ago.
The “Xiamen Daily" Blog account
has since been deleted.
Chinese legal experts Zhao Yuanming analyzed that
Chinese people expressing their disgust and hatred against
Jiang Zemin publicly on the network indicates
Jiang’s regime has completely lost power.
Zhao Yuanming: “Jiang Zemin harmed China
and the people.
He was in power for ten years.
After that he did not let his power go
and interfered with China’s affairs.
He has ruined the social climate
and the official system.
Jiang Zemin is the cause of all the issues.
The arrest and interrogation of Zhou Yongkang
would lead to more direct and indirect evidence
of Jiang Zemin’s crime."
Zhao Yuanming said that recent dismissals of Jiang Zemin
faction officials, the revoking of Jiang Zemin’s son’ title
of Chinese Academy of Sciences Shanghai Branch President,
along with reports about Jiang’s background in Chinese
media indicate Xi Jinping and Li Keqiang’s siege
of Jiang Zemin has reached the entrance of Jiang’s home.
