Xi Jinping, the insecure megalomaniac ruling China’s communist regime doesn’t like criticism. And apparently Jack Ma, once one of China’s richest men, has mysteriously disappeared after criticizing the Communist party in October.
A recent update to this story suggests that Jack Ma has actually gone into hiding from Communist authorities. READ: Chinese billionaire Jack Ma’s not ‘missing,’ just ‘laying low’ after economic reform speech: sources
The Daily Mail explains:
The Chinese tech billionaire behind Asia’s version of Amazon has reportedly not been seen in public for more than two months after falling foul of President Xi Jinping.
Jack Ma, one of China’s most successful and outspoken tycoons, criticised the country’s ‘pawnshop’ financial regulators and state-owned banks in an incendiary speech in Shanghai in October.
He called for reform of a system that ‘stifled business innovation’ and likened global banking regulations to an ‘old people’s club’.
The speech angered the Chinese government, which viewed Ma’s criticisms as an attack on the authority of the Communist Party, and led to its extraordinary clampdown on Ma’s business activities.

Her mistake was criticizing the communist regime for its lies, cover up, incompetence and heavy handedness in handling the coronavirus outbreak. Maybe not coincidentally, Zhan was also a Christian.
