Dear Fellow Republicans at Lane County,
My name is June Gilliam. I’m a conservative living in California.
As a former member of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), I remained a Marxist for the first decade of my life in America. Although the CCP killed my grandpa, deprived my parents of their basic human rights, I firmly believed without CCP, there would be no new China.
Years of the communist indoctrination didn’t loosen its grip on me until in 2008, I came across a show called SHEN YUN. That day, as I sat in the theater watching the show, tears streamed down my face uncontrollably. Unlike the communist culture I grew up with, the show displayed to me the soul of traditional Chinese culture that I had long forgotten.
I was also shocked by the courage of SHEN YUN. In addition to the grand display of 5,000-year Chinese civilization, there were also a few dance snippets featuring modern-day heroes standing up against the CCP’s brutal persecutions for their faith, which I knew nothing of. As I walked out of the theatre, I had this burning question of finding out who was lying and who was telling me the truth. It intrigued me to start my own research on communism.
Through a long and painful self-discovery journey, I transformed myself from what President Reagan called a communist who studies Marx and Lenin to an American patriot who understands Marx and Lenin.
Since 2017, I have shared my personal story with thousands of people here in California, and sent dire warnings of the communist infiltration in our country. Since the last election, more people have reached out to me stating they can’t believe what I said 4 years ago is being realized step by step, right in front of their eyes.
The truth is, America has an enemy that is getting very close to its goal – to destroy the greatest country in all history.
I can’t forget more than a decade ago, SHEN YUN became a tipping point in my life. It displayed to me the beautiful, the pure, the upright, the positive and the good. It cleansed my mind under heavy influence of communism and evoked my longing for finding the truth.
We are living at an unprecedented moment in history. Perhaps more than ever, we are all seeking something very special, which could cast away our worries and usher in hope for the future. Acclaimed as ‘a must-see in life’, SHEN YUN is my answer, and it could be yours, and millions of others’.
