Shame that you got downvoted because people don't understand the concept. Communists, like Chinese, Vietnamese and N. Koreans, love worshipping the party founders like gods.

I’m not even referring to his cult of personality

He’s literally a modern-day Guan Yu — a Chinese folk hero whose wartime/peacetime exploits have been engrained to the Chinese psyche. Even if China wasn’t communist by this date I’d reckon that they’d still have him seated in their household shrines.

Up until today blue collar Chinese still jnvoke his “spirit” whenever they feel that they’re exploited lol

Are you a member of the communist party?

Do you think anyone with common sense is a member of the CCP?


khoabear t1_je3d6tk wrote

Then of course you don't worship. I was talking about communists only.

I also know things about the president of the US. Doesn't mean I am him. It's possible to know about groups you aren't part of. It's called "learning".

Then how do you explain photo of Mao Zedong, Ho Chi Minh or the Kims in their houses and workplaces?

Yes they exist but those are uncommon. Sure those people have their fans but there are nutjobs in every society. They are very much the loud minority.

I meant they aren't widely worshipped. If you go on the street of Beijing and yell "I love the CCP and Mao!" You're likely to get a lot of "um ok let me stay away from that person". You aren't likely to gather a group chanting with you.

Lols don't you white idiots even have a picture of Queen Lizzie stashed in your house somewhere? Or maybe your prime minister's photo in your government offices?
