"Hitler never faced internal popular resistance, not even during his last days holed up in a bunker in Berlin"Weird analogy.
Hitler never faced internal popular resistance, not even during his last days holed up in a bunker in Berlin
There was one attempt on his life by a disgruntled former nobleman named Von Stauffenberg but aside from that the German people, the Wehrmacht and his trusted inner circle never left his side
His position was taken over by Donitz AFTER he had committed suicide by cyanide
As for your other examples, what do they have to do with Xi Jinping and the CCP?
Do you even do history bro?
The position of Xi Jinping in both the Party and Chinese society is unparalleled. He has chased out the Marxist New Left clique, and is in the final process of bulldozing the leftovers of the Jiang Zemin clique. The coronavirus outbreak has given him plenty of ammunition to replace lower and higher government officials with more trusted cadres (most notably the Hubei governer)
He has cemented himself as one of the most imported men in Chinese history. His ideology is now on the same level as Mao's or Deng XiaoPing's
50 percent of the Chinese people venerate the man. It's borderline unhealthy. The other 50 percent is more levelheaded and indifferent but quick to acknowledge his standings, achievements and patriotism.
The only people you'll meet that don't like him are Tier 1 city sluts with a degree from a US/UK/Aussie University and a mild form of the globohomo virus
I suggest you don't hold your breath waiting for Xi's, or the CCP's downfall just because you've been reading about the it in just about every magazin, blog, newspaper and TV show
It's not going to happen. It's propaganda.
"50 percent of the Chinese people venerate the man. It's borderline unhealthy."
My point was more unthinkable events can happen. Not so much comparing Hitler and Xiping. Even though there is similarities. Another one is Xiping using a rethoric saying west has shamed China. By selling opiods, etc. Which is a dangerous rethoric.
If I were to guess. The elite is playing iniminimanimo if it´s US or China getting nazi Germany treatment. But to be honest. Replicating west model will not be easy. Transferring US empire into China.
When elite decides a goal. Sometimes they don´t fully reach it. But the target has to pay a price. So If Xiping doesn´t want to be germanized he will have to pay a price. It might not even be directly China or Xiping paying it.
Beijing is China political center. China is divided by political, economical, etc. Can´t remember which cities now. Think Guangzhou is economical. Do you think the elite is happy? Being stuck at home during lockdown? They´re not.
