What Is Dang Zhong Yang?

A popular Chinese blogger, Han Han planned to set up his own magazine in 2010, called Solo Team, but was stopped by Chinese censors due to this cover.

According to Han Han, a communist official asked him why the cover had such a design? Han explained that as it is not allowed to reveal the private parts of the body, he covered it with a magazine logo. (solo team). The officer accused him of implying that the central body of the communist party has guns. So the magazine plan was killed off.

In China, the media use "跟随党中央 which means: "following the central body of the Party" everyday in communist propaganda reports. "The central lead body of the Party" in Chinese is "党中央" pronounced: "Dang-Zhong-Yang" in mandarin. "Dang" means party; "zhong-yang" means centre.

Also, in Chinese,  档中央 has the exact same pronunciation, 档 -- "Dang" means the centre of the trousers; or 挡 - "Dang ", same pronunciation, means covering. So it implies either the middle (or fly area) of the trousers: 档中央, or covering the middle: 挡中央 -- Dang-Zhong-Yang.

The Chinese dissident Tang Baiqiao, who is chairman of China Peace and Democracy Federation, said recently that nowadays many Chinese people have a very good understanding of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), thanks in part to the “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party.”

“A friend of mine once told me this story. This friend is a Christian and a human rights activist,” Tang said.

“After the publication of the ‘Nine Commentaries,’ my friend began distributing it to people. This friend of mine then met a well-known gang leader who had become a Christian because of my friend. This gang leader was later arrested, and he spoke of how his faith in Christianity had helped in during his time in prison.

“After getting out of prison, this gang leader asked my friend what he could do to show his appreciation. My friend casually asked if he could help distribute the ‘Nine Commentaries.’ This gang leader said he surely would help.”

“That night, something great happened in the city,” Tang said. “A copy of the ‘Nine Commentaries’ was placed on the desks of the five most important officials in the city—the municipal party secretary, mayor, head of the municipal People’s Congress, head of the municipal Chinese People’s Political Consultative Congress, and head of the municipal military district.

“Everyone knows that there are military police officers guarding all government buildings and military compounds. It is hard for people to go in. However, within a single night, a book that is feared the most by the Chinese regime showed up on the desks of the five most powerful people in the city.

“I was told that Zhongnanhai [the CCP leadership compound in Beijing] was aware of this incident. An order came from the top Chinese leaders to solve this case and arrest the person who did this as soon as possible. Leaders from the municipal security bureau did everything they could to solve this case in order to save their own jobs.

A Copy in Almost Every Household

Tang told this story at a Nov. 22 forum held in a Washington, D.C., suburb to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the publication by Epoch Times of the editorial series “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party.”

The series was soon released as a book online and in print, and the book soon sparked a social movement in China. “Tuidang,” which means “quit the Party” in Chinese, involves Chinese people renouncing their association with the CCP and its affiliated organizations, the Communist Youth League and the Young Pioneers. As of Dec. 1, over 185 million people have done so.
