The Newest Batman Supervillain — China's Zhou Yongkang


This is one seriously bad dude, and his downfall could be the prelude to the end of the Chinese Communist Party. Zhou Yongkang was the mastermind behind China’s vast network of secret police, paramilitary police, spies and held considerable clout within the Chinese Communist Party. But now his political rivals have woven a net around him so close, that he can’t escape. He’s going down. And it all began with the trial of Bo Xilai. Chinese leader Xi Jinping looks like he’s finishing the battle started by leader Hu Jintao and premier Wen Jiabao and is taking out the ‘Shanghai clique,’ a group of corrupt Chinese leaders with Jiang Zemin at the head and Zhou Yongkang and Bo Xilai, making up the top ring. Together they’ve been accused of engaging in crimes against humanity including forced organ harvesting of still living prisoners of conscience, genocide against Falun Gong, and a host of other crimes. Is Xi Jinping positioning himself to take down the Communist Party by taking out ‘”he flies and tigers?” What’s next for China? Find out on this episode of China Uncensored!
