Jackie Chan just proved that you can take the actor out of China, but you can’t take their communist beliefs out of the actor.
Even though the U.S. has given him virtually everything he has, Chan apparently still longs to be under strict Chinese rule.
Chan has quite a history of praising the Chinese government and their extreme censorship, but he really crossed the line at a recent event.
Daily Wire reported that during a July 8 Beijing symposium celebrating the Chinese Communist Party’s centennial, the action star sang the praises of the Party and stated outright that he would like to count himself among its ranks.
“I’m jealous that you are CCP members. The CCP is really great,” he told the communist leaders who were present, adding, “The CCP’s promises don’t take 100 years, they are fulfilled in decades. I want to become a CCP member.”
The piece goes on to say that this isn’t the first time Chan has shown his support for the Chinese government. In 2008 he praised the regime’s censorship policies, saying during a forum on Asia, “I’m not sure if it’s good to have freedom or not. I’m really confused now. If you’re too free, you’re like the way Hong Kong is now. It’s very chaotic. Taiwan is also chaotic. I’m gradually beginning to feel that we Chinese need to be controlled. If we’re not being controlled, we’ll just do what we want.”
Clearly, Chan has been completely indoctrinated to some hardcore communist beliefs.
This is pretty ironic because Chan would probably not have everything he has now if he were to have sought out a film career in China.
This has also gotta be a complete slap in the face to many of his fans, both inside and outside of China – and especially those in Hong Kong, who are fighting for the “freedom” that he thinks is “wrong.”
