    Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, is a new religious movement known for its promotion of ancient Chinese culture, anti-communist sentiment, and its sect-like organization. In addition to its promotion of individual peace and harmony, it advocates for reactionary and right-wing populist rhetoric, allies itself with any political entity that opposes the CCP, and opposes anyone else perceived to be leftist in some way. It has created and spread conspiracy theories about progressives and leftists, as well as racial and sexual minorities.

    It was founded by Li Hongzhi in China in the early 1990s. Since 1999, it has been banned by the Chinese Communist Party, with its members actively being persecuted for their beliefs.

    History

    Falun Gong emerged toward the end of China's "qigong boom" — a period that saw a proliferation of similar practices of meditation, and promotion of Confucian values. The movement gained widespread popularity in China throughout the 1990s and by 1999 government sources estimated that there were 70 million practitioners, more than there were CPC members at the time (although this number was most likely a gross overestimate).

    Falun Gong initially enjoyed support from the Chinese government, which actively promoted the cult despite its right-wing anti-communist leanings. This could be because Deng Xiaoping, after his 1992 Southern Tour, decided to drop socialism from the Chinese government's ruling philosophy completely and fully embrace free-market capitalism, and may have perceived Falun Gong positively due to its promotion of traditionalist Confucian values as a counterbalance to left-wing and liberal opposition. The fact Falun Gong promotes itself as a "healthy" practice that can cure diseases without one needing to take medicine may have also been cost-effective and convenient for the Chinese government, as China at the time lacked a good healthcare system.

    In 1995, Li Hongzhi declared that he had finished teaching Falun Gong in China, and began spreading the practice abroad. Between 1995 and 1999, Li traveled the world giving lectures on his beliefs wherever he went. Falun Gong associations and clubs began appearing all throughout Europe, North America, and Australia. Li Hongzhi moved to the United States in 1996 with his wife and daughter, and in 1998 became a U.S. permanent resident, settling in New York, where Falun Gong's headquarters remain to this day.

    The Chinese government under President Jiang Zemin had little to no support from the public due to mass poverty, corruption, nepotism, and repression by state officials which fueled the popularity of Falun Gong, which many saw as an escape from the bitterness of reality. Jiang Zemin came to perceive the cult as a threat to his power as an increasing number of CPC officials (possibly including future President Xi Jinping) actively practiced or sympathized with Falun Gong themselves.

    On 25 April 1999, about 10,000 Falun Gong practitioners gathered near the central appeals office in Beijing to demand an end to the escalating harassment against the movement, and on 29 July the same year, Falun Gong was banned by the Central Government. The persecution of Falun Gong enabled Jiang Zemin to seize control of media, police, and the military to eliminate dissent. He even went so far as to create his own paramilitary organization called the 610 Office to persecute the cult. Re-education through labor, Laojiao, rapidly expanded with hundreds of camps being built all across the country to jail Falun Gong practitioners and other dissidents.

    The persecution of Falun Gong gave Jiang Zemin unprecedented powers and made it easier for him to maintain a high level of influence over Party politics after his term ended in 2004 when he was forced to formally hand over power to the new Paramount Leader Hu Jintao. Local officials often competed to arrest as many Falun Gong practitioners as possible to show their loyalty to Jiang's faction. The Governor of Liaoning, Bo Xilai, was one of the leading officials in the Anti-Falun Gong campaign which made it easier for him to rise through the ranks of the Party.

    The persecution of Falun Gong caused many of its practitioners to flee China. Many settled in the US where they would gain financial support from the US government and the Republican Party to promote conservative anti-communist sentiment. Falun Gong practitioners established a vast global media network consisting of arts and entertainment company Shen Yun, the newspaper Epoch Times, New Tang Dynasty Television (NTD Television) broadcaster, and the YouTube channel China Uncensored, among others that promote negative coverage of CCP's China.

    Falun Gong due to their revisionist views of the ancient dynasties are believers in the mandate of heaven which stresses that when the rulers of China become too corrupt and inept to rule the Chinese people will overthrow the government and a new dynasty will take its place.

    Falun Gong (among other Chinese dissident groups) alleges the CCP abroad carries out organ harvesting of prisoners of conscience with the organs being sold on black markets. Falun Gong practitioners abroad have signed arrest warrants for Jiang Zemin and Bo Xilai for engaging in genocide. In 2013 Spain ordered the arrest of former President Jiang Zemin meaning that he no longer can set foot in Spain without being put on trial.

    Falun Gong media often promote views in line with the Republican Party and Western conservative politicians such as Steve Bannon, Mitch McConnell, and Lindsey Graham. This includes political stances like opposition to open immigration, multiculturalism, gun control, and anything perceived to be left-wing or progressive. They are also very critical of "elites" and corporations such as Bill Gates' Microsoft and Cisco which they accuse of having helped China set up their surveillance network, Great Firewall, and promoting Chinese state propaganda. Falun Gong support the Democratic Progressive Party in Taiwan over the Kuomintang which they perceive to be too friendly to CCP's interests and want China and Taiwan to be recognized as separate countries. They're also highly supportive of other Chinese dissident organizations such as the World Uyghur Congress, the Central Tibetan Administration, and the Hong Kong pro-democracy movement, in hopes that China will be broken into several different states along ethnic and cultural divisions.

    Falun Gong media have gained widespread popularity and coverage since Donald Trump's presidential campaign. The cult portrays Trump as a messiah-like figure sent from heaven to destroy the Chinese Communist Party. Before 2021, cult-affiliated media such as China Uncensored regularly tried to portray then-presidential candidate Joe Biden and the US Democratic Party as communist sympathizers that would turn the US into a Chinese vassal state should Trump not win the 2020 Presidential Election. Since Trump lost (which the cult initially denied by promoting the election fraud conspiracy) and Biden won the presidency, Falun Gong media has back-tracked on their negative coverage of the Democratic Party as US-China relations have only worsened over the past 2 years contrary to what they had previously told their audience would happen.

    Even though former President Jiang Zemin has significantly lost influence within the Communist Party and eventually died in 2022, over the past decade due to losing the power struggle against current Paramount Leader and President Xi Jinping, Falun Gong remains illegal in China, possibly because of Xi's fear that legalizing the cult would mean to admit the CCP did something wrong in the first place which would greatly polarize Chinese society.

    • Democratism - Maybe I was wrong about you. I used to think you were commies in disguise who would turn the US into a Chinese vassal state. However, they way things have gone the past two years, I admit that I misjudged you. Anthony Blinken and Nancy Pelosi are quite based.
    • Chiangism - Better than Mao that's for sure, and I love how you saved Chinese culture and promote confucian values. But why did you have to be an irredentist authoritarian socialist like your Mainland counterparts?
    • Wang Jingwei Thought - Despite being a former communist, you brought in peace and anti-communism in some parts of China! Supporting the Japanese was horrible, though.
    • Taiwanese Pan-Green Alliance - Based anti-CCP and pro-Taiwanese separation from China, but why do many of your followers despise Chinese culture and traditions?

But why haven't you re-legalized my movement in China yet? Also, your policies in Xinjiang, Tibet, Inner Mongolia, Hong Kong and threats on Taiwan are hella cringe. Still prefer you over Bo Xilai, though.

    • Showa Statism - Rapist, murderer, and traitor to Asia!

    • Bidenism - CCP puppet who cheated his way into presidency in 2020.
