Western Propaganda on “ISIS Breeding” in Xinjiang and Belgium

March 29th, 2016 No comments

I thought that I would like to go to this article by the Atlantic about Belgium before the terrorists attack.

http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2015/11/belgium-radical-islam-jihad-molenbeek-isis/416235/

This is a well known problem with ISIS a “breeding ground” for terrorists because western countries decides to turn their back on western funded terrorists in Syria.  Even the Belgium PM says that: “This is a gigantic problem. Apart from prevention, we should also focus more on repression.”  After this terrorist attack, it seems that Belgium now has kept its word.  Of course western propaganda didn’t seem to criticize the Belgium cracking down on these terrorists.

This recent story about Bob Woodruff from ABC to make a documentary about China ‘cracking down’ on its people.  This is the same kind of ‘repression’ that many Western countries has done and even western propagandist like Mr. Woodruff portray that the Chinese government is responsible.

90后女孩写神曲蹿红:《马克思是个九零后》/ Marx is an 90s youth.

March 28th, 2016 7 comments

I grown up in the 60s in U.S., a turbulent time, of Vietnam War and accompanying protests, a rebellious time against stifling conformity of the 50s, sexual liberation and feminism, music of folk songs and rocks, civil right protests and marches, and idealism from far left nihilism to far right Ayn Rand libertarianism. Even Marxism was in vogue for a while. Over the years hippies transformed to Yuppies, and Reagan democrats reigned in politics. In China, Cultural Revolution caused upheavals and accompanying reactions and backlashes. The economic growth in China during the last 35 years were dramatic, lifting more than hundreds of millions if not billion people out of poverty. Yet I worry that whether China will go the path of the West, with the value of Marx and Mao receding back become irrelevant.

I was comforted by Xi’s policy against corruption and purifying the party during the last 3 years. Now I am gladdened that the new generation is picking up the torch and rediscovering Marx as exemplified by this article in guancha.cn, a rap song by name probably a Mongolian minority girl.

《马克思是个九零后》
词:卓丝娜
曲:胡尔琴夫
演唱:香水组合
我对他的第一印象,在政治课
学了他的思想,只是为了及格
本打算过了就算,书再也不念
后来翻开却发现并不讨厌
人生总是充满意外
有一天我看到他的厉害
看到我的信仰别再问why
别再看magazine(杂志)我在看马克思
我出生在1990s,

我就是你的Bruno Mars(布洛诺马尔斯)
但你是我的维纳斯(Venus),
我亲爱的马克思(Marx)
统治者说着乌托邦却不知自由该怎么写
你站出来说无产阶级的力量永远正不畏邪
不为了权不为了钱
但是为了信仰我们一往无前
(前进进 前进进)
Cause we both won’t give up till we die
(到死也不会放弃)
我出生在1990s,

我就是你的Bruno Mars(布洛诺马尔斯)
但你是我的维纳斯(Venus),
我亲爱的马克思(Marx)
统治者说着乌托邦却不知自由该怎么写
你站出来说无产阶级的力量永远正不畏邪
不为了权不为了钱
但是为了信仰我们一往无前
(前进进 前进进)
Cause we both won’t give up till we die
(到死也不会放弃)

为了别人牺牲自己不会容易
总有些人会觉得不可思议
不可思议 不会容易
但世界可能已经ready(准备好)
马克思已经不是 plan B(备用方案)
(Be mine)决定可以当他的小弟
虽然已经有了至少14亿
(You’re gonna listen to me )(听我说)
共产主义甜如蜜

我出生在1990s,
我就是你的Bruno Mars
但你是我的维纳斯(Venus),
我亲爱的马克思(Marx)
统治者说着乌托邦却不知自由该怎么写
你站出来说无产阶级的力量永远正不畏邪
不为了权不为了钱
但是为了信仰我们一往无前
(前进进 前进进)
Cause we both won’t give up till we die(到死也不会放弃)

九零后(yeah) 从此以后(you know)
we both won’t give up till we die(我们不会放弃到死)
and this song will never die (whoo)(这首歌也永远不会死)

像叶孤舟行在山丘
那样的为真理争斗
像他一样嫉恶如仇
像他一样不屑权谋

像叶孤舟行在山丘
那样的为真理争斗
像他一样嫉恶如仇
像他一样不屑权谋
马克思是个九零后

For those who can’t read Chinese I will try to translate the last stanza here.

Like a lonesome canoe floating between mountain hollow.
Struggling against all for truth.
Like him whom hates all evil.
Like him whom disdain power.
Marx is a 90s youth.

I like Trump’s Vision of American Power Abroad

March 21st, 2016 15 comments

I know there are few or no Trump supporters here … still whatever you think about Trump, I think if you see the injustice of U.S. meddling in Middle East, American Full Spectrum Global DominanceAfrica, the Baltic, and Asia, you have to like and take notice what Trump recently said.

You don’t even have to support Trump.  If you believe Trump is somehow mysteriously in tune with the bulk of the American people, then I think that with Trump articulated here finally there is hope for America … and the world.  Here is an excerpt of a piece about his recent interview with the Washington Post.

Western Propaganda vs Peter Liang

March 15th, 2016 22 comments

As many of you know, Peter Liang was charged with second degree manslaughter as the result of death of Akai Gurley.  Western propaganda, NYC’s mayor and government seems have turned its back against him while many white officers have killed unarmed black people.  They seemed to neglect several facts.

  1. NYPD officers shouldn’t have their guns drawn in many of these stair patrols.

http://nypost.com/2012/07/30/inside-look-at-nypd-vertical-patrols-through-gun-ridden-housing-project/

As you can see from this article 2 years ago before the incident, it is normal for NYPD officers to have their guns drawn on these vertical patrols.  In fact, they are especially trained to be alert when there are lights out in the staircases,  because many officers were ambushed as the result.

2. Liang and his partner Shaun Landau were arguing each other in front of Gurley after he was shot.  Not true, Liang and Landau was arguing each other before they realized that Gurley was shot.

3. Liang and Landau does want to do CPR training.

http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/exclusive-taught-peter-liang-cpr-hands-shield-article-1.2557145

Liang and Landau received inadequate CPR training.

What I find interesting is that while many Chinese Americans are protesting about the unjust verdict, western propaganda managed to get some brainwashed Chinese ‘journalists’ to go against them.

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/02/23/magazine/how-should-asian-americans-feel-about-the-peter-liang-protests.html?_r=1

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/steph-yin/peter-liang-protests_b_9289990.html

Let me make this perfectly clear, Liang is not innocent here and he should be disciplined or even fired from the NYPD as the result of this  incident.  What I don’t agree is that how can he be indicted for second degree manslaughter for doing his job without the intent to hurt or to kill someone.

Good CCTV documentary on US human rights violations (English subtitles)

March 14th, 2016 No comments

I’m glad to see the Chinese media FINALLY starting to explicitly outline the hypocrisy of American human rights rhetoric, but I think it doesn’t go far enough to illustrate the sheer scale of US human rights violations & issues, such as:

  1. Little mention on the sheer degree of income & wealth inequality, which then translates into the lack of meaningful political power for most average citizens.
  2. The number of annual police killings & prison incarceration rates in the US.
  3. The lack of respect for equal rights not just by the US government, but BY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, as demonstrated by the popularity of xenophobic, & particularly islamophobic rhetoric among presidential candidates.

I think CCTV’s exclusion important details such as the aforementioned may create the misconception that the US human rights problems they outlined are somehow “small & isolated”, and inadequately highlights the widespread nature of their lack of respect for human rights. But nevertheless, this is a good start.

In Foreign policy and Soft-Power message, America is Donald J. Trump

March 8th, 2016 6 comments

Donald Trump is embarrassing to US, this election cycle.  But some American commentators have even remarked, (as I have previously quoted), to paraphrase Joseph de Maistre,

“In a Democracy, the People don’t get the government they want, they get the government they deserve.”

Because, America, you are Donald J. Trump in the world.

Russia and China – Strategic Partners Or Partners of Convenience?

March 3rd, 2016 1 comment

Russia-China Fence MendingMr. Unknown and the blogger known as the Saker has collaborated to write an interesting, provocative, and insightful piece end of last year.  I truly applaud the effort and feel honored that China does have true friends from Russia.  And I am truly heartened to see that there are Russians who do see China as equals … and more importantly … as friends.

Overall I learned quite many things, all valuable to further shaping my worldview. But I also do disagree with some parts of it.  I have no doubt that the great Russian-Chinese dialogue in bringing two great neighbors closer together … perhaps one day to become allies … will continue and will a force for global peace.  But a solid house must be built on solid solutions.  So here is my response, which includes some criticisms, which hopefully will go toward building a more solid foundation between the two great nations / civilizations.

On the Anti-Trump Agenda – a Personal Gripe

March 2nd, 2016 18 comments

There are so many things ovDonald Trump for Presidenbter which I disagree with Trump.  When he talks about China, I literally disagree with him on everything he says – currency manipulation, unfair trade, aggressive trade policies, an all out assault to gut America of jobs…

Yet I see every attack on Trump in the media – and yes here on this blog – as the worst of Western media propaganda.  I am writing here not to support Trump (although I would definitely support him over Clinton), but to show what I consider to be Western media’s hypocrisy … and the power of the hypocrisy to brainwash everyone here!  😉

According to the Economist, here are some of the worst of Trump’s offenses.

Because each additional Trumpism seems a bit less shocking than the one before, there is a danger of becoming desensitised to his outbursts. To recap, he has referred to Mexicans crossing the border as rapists; called enthusiastically for the use of torture; hinted that Antonin Scalia, a Supreme Court justice, was murdered; proposed banning all Muslims from visiting America; advocated killing the families of terrorists; and repeated, approvingly, a damaging fiction that a century ago American soldiers in the Philippines dipped their ammunition in pigs’ blood before executing Muslim rebels. At a recent rally he said he would like to punch a protester in the face. This is by no means an exhaustive list.
