People living under the rule of Communism in China are deplorable as the toxic Red Propaganda has confused a whole nation of what is right or wrong.
In China, some of the country’s 800 million web users questioned (CCTV reporter in UK) Ms Kong’s actions, but on the popular and highly censored platform Weibo, there was widespread support, with some congratulating her for confronting, as viewed by ABC correspondent Bill Birtles.
More recently, a Chinese family visiting Sweden created a diplomatic stir when they accused Swedish police of brutality for removing them from a hostel when they’d turned up the night before their booking.
In all cases, (with the Chinese behaving like bullies),China’s Foreign Ministry and state-run media moved quickly to support the Chinese nationals involved and it often seemed to play the events up.
October first is the National Day of China but more and more Chinese tend to label it “the National Shame Day”, with factually more protests than celebrations two days ago both at home and abroad.
Most Chinese media gives their headlined spaces to “President Xi’s ten golden phrases of patriotism” yesterday. A healthy patriotism is to love one’s own country while at the same time respect the country of others. But the Red Propaganda under CCP educates its people to love China only and hate the others. No wonder that when the government raises its banner against Japan, there are protests against Japan-invested enterprises in China and to burn Japan-made cars. The same is with South Korea when Chinese refuse to visit the country on pretext of patriotism.
Patriotism itself is not evil. When Donald Trump declared that “We reject the ideology of globalism, and we embrace the doctrine of patriotism” during his UN speech last week, he has the respect for patriotism of others and feels the “the heart of a patriot that feels the same powerful love for your nation, the same intense loyalty to your homeland”.
The Financial Times reports last week White House hawks earlier this year encouraged Trump to stop providing student visas to Chinese nationals, but the proposal was shelved over concerns about its economic and diplomatic impact. The report says that as the administration debated ways to tackle Chinese espionage, Stephen Miller, a White House aide who has been pivotal in developing the administration’s hardline immigration policies, pushed Trump and other officials to make it impossible for Chinese citizens to study in the U.S., according to three people familiar with the situation. Terry Branstad, the former Iowa governor who is U.S. ambassador to China, succeeded in convincing Trump that Miller’s proposal was too draconian, the report says.
Most Chinese students come to the US and study hard for self improvement and western cultures and traditions gradually have a positive impact on their viewpoints of humanity. But dissemination with the distorted Red Color education from as early as kindergarten and primary school has made it difficult for some Chinese to change in the way they think or live.
An internal notice by the CCP was made public on the internet recently, telling that children of top ranking Chinese officials studying or living in the United States are requested to go back to China by the end of the year. This has given rise to controversial debates these days that the CCP is tightening control over the borders to protect its top officials from deepening US sanctions. Some argue that this third generation of the Red Army would not go back to China but flood to other countries like Canada, UK and Australia to set up their patriotic bases.
With the escalation of trade tensions and a Chinese warship sails within metres of US destroyer in South China Sea the day before, some people worry that the US and China may go into war if the two sides will not make a deal within a matter of months.
According to CNBC, using trade deals with Canada, Mexico and South Korea as leverage, Washington looks set to sharpen its hard line trade policy against China.
Unlike what it wanted for the new NAFTA, Washington’s demands on China “still seem more opaque — mixed between market access, end to forced technology transfer, reduction in Chinese exports to U.S. and cuts to overcapacity,” said Rachel Ziemba, an emerging market analyst and adjunct fellow at think tank the Center for New American Security. ”
Noted investor Mark Mobius told CNBC on Tuesday, “I would say, maybe after six months they will come to some agreement and that will be done. But in the meantime, there will be a lot of blood on the streets.”
We don’t know what it means by “blood in the streets” as Mark Mobius puts it, but as Canadian trade consultant Eric Miller remarks, “The Trump administration crafted this provision very clearly as a way of putting pressure on Canada,” and maybe China too.
White House National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow emphasized the significance of the provision, saying it sends a signal to China “that we are acting as one.”
To divert the resentment domestically, Beijing will tighten national censorship further, raise the flag of patriotism higher, encourage more Chinese to “get ready and eat grass” to counter US, and even threaten to wage war against Taiwan.
British police is still investigating this Chinese journalist who slapped a student volunteer at UK event despite releasing her from custody, as China’s state broadcaster CCTV protests violation of journalist’s rights.
Chinese historical cultures and traditions have encouraged its people to be honest, speak the truth and stand for the righteousness.
And in a society under the CCP, they will continue to tell the people: white is black, black is white.
