Former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin’s father, Jiang Shijun, a businessman and litterateur, joined the treason when Wang Jingwei established the reorganization of Wang’s puppet state. Jiang Shijun and his boss Hu Lancheng created the theory of “national subjugation,” which justified collaboration with the Japanese.
When Japan lost the war, Lancheng fled to Tokyo and published a pamphlet entitled “The Vortex of History,” which caught the attention of the newspaper that linked Jiang Shijun as the father of Jiang Zemin.
It was difficult to unravel this story because of the pseudonyms of this man, who went by the name Jiang Guanqian during his collaborationist life.
Shijun chaired the Propaganda Department of the Central Puppet Government. He devoted all his work to fascist propaganda, then joined the Japanese Puppet Propaganda Department, which compiled children’s songs to brainwash children under his leadership.
The Communist traitor, Jiang Shijun, planned the Great East Asian Jihad exhibition in the Pacific and participated in designing the film “Eternal Beauty,” a drama against England and the United States.
Despite his work, he never forgot to devote time to “educate” Jiang Zemin. Thus it is said that he was a good father and Zemin a good son who inherited the evil attributes of his progenitor.
The story of Xu Lai, a well-known film and stage actress, demonstrates the evil nature of Jiang Shijun and Hu Lancheng, who forced the actress to work for Japanese cinema.
In 1943, the film academy, Koya, held a casting call to find actors to star in “Flower of the Empire,” a film about the life of Japanese spy Yunzi. Xu Lai, a Chinese actress with experience in the seventh art when she starred in 1933 in Star Film Company’s Remanant Spring, was invited by these monsters.
However, the young Chinese girl refused to sign, she already had a career as a spy with her husband, but this time she did not cross the red line, then Lancheng and Shijun chased her to kill her.
They both went to Xu Lai’s house, but she had fled to Shanghai.
In 1956, Xu Lai moved to Beijing and began working with actress Jiang Qing, leader of the “Gang of Four,” and the fourth wife of Mao Tse Tung, who denounced Xu Lai during the Cultural Revolution, and she perished in prison in 1973.
Japan launches its conquest of the whole of China
On September 18, 1931, the Kwantung Army occupied the entire province of Manchuria, which came under the aegis of the Empire of the Rising Sun. The Mukden Incident was the Japanese justification for beginning operations and led to the birth of the puppet state of Manchukuo in 1932.
The infrastructure of southern Manchuria, and the Korean peninsula, had already been in Japanese hands since the Russo-Japanese war of 1904, which made it possible for much of the local population of that geographical area to cooperate with the occupiers.
After the occupation of that immense Chinese province, the Lytton Commission declared that the state of Manchukuo was not recognized, which led Japan to withdraw from the League of Nations and occupy China.
From 1937 to 1945, the entire northern, eastern, and southern parts of China were occupied by the Japanese army, which imposed martial law in those territories and stole their economy to cope with Washington but also allowed the rise of local politics.
There are enough studies to analyze the adaptability of the Chinese who lived under the Japanese aegis in a remarkable political and cultural organization. But, unfortunately, the communist party has qualified it as a “puppet, or traitorous society.”
It is true that during the occupation, it was not all repression and brutality on the part of the occupier. The part of the Chinese hierarchy serving in the empire’s civil service also managed to gain political power and representation in Tokyo.
Much like the Mongol occupation period during the reign of Kublai Khan, however, once again, the Communist Party imposed the rhetoric of the evil occupier and the traitorous Chinese to the disadvantage of the Kuomintang.
In studies of visual cultures during the occupation, the positive influence of “collaborating” Chinese administrations, such as the Provisional Government of the Republic of China in the North, 1937 to 1940, the Reformed Government of the Republic of China, 1938 to 1940, and the Reorganized National Government of the Republic of China, founded in 1940 that involved most of the client states (Wang’s Republic of China), was highlighted.
