China Coup Rumors Debunked

Despite rumors of a possible coup in China, a new appearance on television by Chinese dictator and Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leader Xi Jinping dispels the fake rumors. China Central Television (CCTV) displayed footage of Xi viewing an exhibit at the Beijing Exhibition Hall titled “Forging Ahead into the New Era.”

American Military News reports:

Rumors had been swirling on Chinese-language Twitter that the 69-year-old Xi’s absence from the public eye presaged a bid to topple him from power ahead of the CCP’s 20th National Congress next month, where Xi will seek an unprecedented third term in office after amending the constitution in 2018 to remove term limits on the leadership.

In a country where all information is tightly controlled by government censors and the media are expected to sing the praises of its leaders, coup rumors aren’t infrequent.

The recent rumors were partly sparked by online remarks made by Song Ping, a centenarian former member of the all-powerful Politburo standing committee, who appeared to criticize recent moves by Xi’s administration to ensure greater state control of an economy no longer driven by exports, but by domestic demand.

However, Xi is highly likely to have been in compulsory quarantine following his Sept. 16 return from the Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit in Uzbekistan.

Veteran journalist Cheng Yizhong wrote regarding the allegations of a coup, “It’s such nonsense. How could that even happen?” Cheng added, “This is all people’s personal emotions talking, and has nothing to do with reality.”
