Dissident jet-skis 250 miles at sea to escape Xi’s China:  ‘No one is safe’

A Chinese dissident jet-skied 250 miles across the open sea to reach safety in South Korea after becoming an outspoken critic of leader-for-life Xi Jinping.

American-educated Kwon Pyong jumped on a jet ski last week and sped 250 miles across the Yellow Sea from China’s eastern Shandong province to Incheon, South Korea, equipped with only a helmet, binoculars, a compass — and five 6.6-gallon fuel tanks tied to his small craft.

His dramatic escape – revealed Wednesday – came after a series of China’s best-known figures, from billionaire developer Whitney Duan to tennis star Peng Shuai to mega-businessman Jack Ma of Alibaba, vanished almost completely from the public eye in a harsh expression of Xi’s power.

Outspoken critics of Xi are in just as much danger, if not more.

Xi is proving to be as harsh as Mao. No one is permitted to express an opinion, facial recognition software can prevent a person from buying anything - even food - and what little religious freedom there may have been is quickly disappearing.
