Professor Zheng conflates Western political parties with the Communist Party of China, when they are not commensurable.

Western political 'parties' are factions of the 'Capitalist Party,' the oligarchy that has always ruled America, and are terribly destructive, as President Washington explained: “Parties become potent engines by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.

"The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty”.

The Communist Party of China is not a faction of anything, nor does it permit factions, after enduring the catastrophic consequences of factions at the Imperial Court. Further distinguishing itself from Western factions, the CPC is a service organization of 100 million volunteers who contribute $1 billion in annual dues and a trillion hours of service to their country each year. Its fundamental principles and its oath resemble nothing so much as those of Rotary International.

And that's why we must destroy it.
