In an internal speech on February 25, 2021, a senior regional Communist Party official revealed Party General Secretary Xi Jinping's attitude toward the U.S. The text of the speech appeared briefly in Qilian News but was quickly removed due to its sensitive content.
The official, Party Secretary of Qilian County in Qinghai Province He Bin, quoted Xi as telling Party members: "The biggest source of chaos in the world today is the U.S." and "the U.S. is the biggest threat to China's development and security." Referring to party officials' careful study of "glorious documents of Marxist political economy," He Bin said: "Xi Jinping's important speech is all about big things," full of his "profound insights into times and trends, his accurate grasp of crisis and opportunity, his scientific guidance on thoughts and deeds."
Below are excerpts of He Bin's speech:
County-Level Cadre Indoctrination And Implementation Of The Latest Party Decisions
"The convening of this special seminar for leading cadres at the county level to study and implement the Fifth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC Central Committee meets the needs of implementing the deployment requirements of the CPC Central Committee and the provincial and Autonomous Prefecture committees. It also meets the need for leading cadres to set themselves forth as an example, commanding their subordinates to do a good job in study. It also meets the need for them to recharge their energy and improve their skills.
'… We Read And Studied, Word By Word, Sentence By Sentence, The Important Speech Of General Secretary Xi Jinping'
"Before, through self-study, concentrated study, listening to lectures, expert guidance, we read and studied, word by word, sentence by sentence, the important speech of General Secretary Xi Jinping and the Party's spirit of the fifth Plenary session of the 19th CPC Central Committee. Today we hold this special seminar, I think, it is to promote the theoretical armament of 'going deep, going to heart, and going to real results.' It is also an exhibition, training and pledge of 'fully mindful of the paramount issues of a great nation.' It is also to refuel, boost, gear up and issue the marching order in our new modernization journey to contribute to the 14th Five-year Plan and to build a beautiful happy new Qilian.
Xi Jinping: 'The Biggest Source Of Chaos In The World Today Is The United States,' And 'The United States Is The Greatest Threat To China's Development And Security'
"Through the study, we have further deepened our understanding of Marxist political economy, and strengthened our political judgment of using dialectical thinking to observe the general trend, plan for the overall situation, and focus on major events. Whether the two speeches of General Secretary Xi Jinping at the Fifth Plenary Session, or the important speech at the leading cadres' seminar at provincial and ministerial level, all ran through the red line of the basic principle and methodology of Marxist political economy. It is an incisive elaboration and theoretical sublimation of Xi Jinping's thought on 'socialism with Chinese characteristics,' especially his thought on political economy. And they are glorious documents of Marxist political economy with shining light of our times.
"First, we have learned the political height of gaining insight into the general situation from the perspective of the overall situation. General Secretary Xi Jinping always has two 'big pictures' in mind, and he has made a series of major political and strategic judgments by observing, analyzing and judging issues in the context of 'the strategic overall situation of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation' and 'the profound changes unseen in the world in a century.' For example, when talking about the historical position, he made a strategic judgment that China has entered a new stage of development. When it comes to the international situation, he made a political judgment that 'the West is strong and the East is weak' is decremental backward-looking, and that 'the East is rising and the West is falling' is incremental and future-looking.
"When talking about the strategic game between China and the United States, he made major judgment that 'the biggest source of chaos in the world today is the United States' and 'the United States is the greatest threat to China's development and security.' When it comes to the governance system, he made the directional judgment that 'economic globalization will continue to undergo profound changes, but its fundamental direction will not change,' and that 'crisis and opportunities coexist, there are opportunities amid crises, and crisis can turn into opportunities.' As a result, I deeply realize that, as the county Party Secretary, I need to take a clear-cut stand in politics, be good at climbing high and look far ahead, judge situations and analyze problems politically, to promote our work.
'Xi Jinping's Important Speech Is All About Big Things,' Full Of His 'Profound Insights Into Times And Trends, His Accurate Grasp Of Crisis And Opportunity, His Scientific Guidance On Thoughts And Deeds'
"Second, we studied the political perspective of distinguishing right from wrong from the 'two points theory.' 'I am not afraid of the clouds covering my eyes.' We need to be good at seeing the sun through the clouds, seeing the essence through the phenomenon, accurately identifying the essence of the phenomenon, effectively distinguishing the essence of the phenomenon, grasping the overall situation through various details, revealing the inevitability of things from accidental problems, and grasping the main contradictions and the main aspects of the contradictions among many contradictory relations. For example, there are groups of concepts, standards and viewpoints that are full of dialectic relationships, such as crisis and opportunity, international and domestic, 'have or have not' and 'good or not.'
"Using dialectics, General Secretary Xi Jinping's important speech is all about big things, manifesting true framework. It fully embodies General Secretary Xi Jinping's profound insights into times and trends, his accurate grasp of crisis and opportunity, his scientific guidance on thoughts and deeds. It is full of the lights of Marxist truth. This enlightens us that in the face of the complex and grim economic situation and the arduous tasks of reform, development and stability, as the principal leaders of grassroots organizations, we must learn to observe through the political telescope, microscope and photoscope, and constantly enhance our political acumen and discerning ability.
'Xi Jinping Has A Long-term Historical Perspective, Always Putting Our Cause Into Long-term History'
"Third, we have learned the political dimension of viewing problems from the 'historical perspective.' General Secretary Xi Jinping has a long-term historical perspective, always putting our cause into long-term history to observe, plan, and consider. For example, on the judgment of the new development stage, from the perspective of history, he reviewed the accumulation of poverty and weakness since modern times to Sun Yat-sen's Outline of the founding of the Republic of China. Based on the Party's nearly 100 years of history, from the first proposed 'modernization' to the 'three steps' of 'realizing the four modernizations' by the older generation of Party and state leaders such as Mao Zedong, Zhou Enlai, Deng Xiaoping. That is to say, building a modern socialist country is the dialectical unity of the theoretical logic of scientific socialism and the historical logic of China's social development.
"It condenses the most fundamental dream of the Chinese nation since modern times to realize the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. It also reflects the beautiful vision and unremitting exploration of socialism by human beings since modern times, and is in line with the rules and trend of human social development. From the perspective of history, it let us have a clearer understanding of the historical dimension of the new development stage. From the dimensions of the rules governing human social development and world trends, it enabled us to have a clear understanding of our position, and strengthened our confidence in the path, theory, system and culture of socialism with Chinese characteristics."
