Why do Americans think that the Chinese Communist party is a tyrannical regime that oppresses everyone?

Update:

I have lived and worked in China for over 2 years and love it there. China is a wonderful country all thanks to the Chinese Communist Party. You can travel to any major city in China within 8 hours via a comfortable high-speed train and they have the best military parades. Their social insurance program is much better than Social Security as it allows you to save up to buy a house when you retire. Best thing is that protests are not allowed and I am not bothered by election every 4 years.

Update 2:

I would love the US government to be just like the Chinese Communist Party. The USA needs a high-speed rail system. It needs a better social insurance program and a society that encourages small businesses.

    Maybe the video of Chinese police gassing democracy protestors in Hong Kong, or perhaps the way the Chinese government incarcerate the Falun Gong and sells their organs. I never, ever invest in China.

    Because that is what they have been taught in schools, read in newspapers that are biased or told by the American government. The Chinese communist government is far less dictatorial than many fascist military dictatorship governments that the US supports, or has supported.

    That is because it is a communist regime that oppresses everyone. It doesn't allow free speech. If you speak negatively against them as a citizen, you are jailed or even killed. You can't access the internet without it being censored. You don't have rights in a communist regime.

    They just recently shot a 14 year old protestor.
