In a major crackdown on 'historical nihilists', the Chinese government has deleted more than 2 million posts containing a “harmful” discussion of history involving Communist leaders, ahead of the 100th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party in July. “For a while, some people have disseminated harmful information with historical nihilism on the internet, under the guise of reflection and declassification," said Wen Youhua.
