The deep wound theory.

Back then, when we were at war during 1971, many ran away.

Till date, those "educated elites" who never fought ,try to tell us how we should go forward. How much they feel from the deep wounds(!!) despite setting foot here once in one or two decade.
Get it now?
Hi Nobonita Barua,

Or changes in their status, During the 80's and 90's, when you emigrate and become successful you make it and was envied, now seeing the native doing better than you, your just one of the guys. Its jealousy ,A feeling of superiority just like HKer, and the Taiwanese over their mainland counterpart.

Hi manqiangrexue,

my grandparents on both sides were intellectuals and suffered under the earlier days of the CCP but they don't teach hate; my parents were taught that that is water under the bridge between citizens and an imperfect young government in a tough position trying to do its best.

That's what so revealing about our culture, a realist and a true pacifist. What you had experience is the same as mine, as an oversea Chinese being subjected to racial discrimination and hate, reeling from my suffering my father only advise is to improve myself and be a contributor to society that hated us. To show our gratitude in accepting us to live with them. It's the only way to coexist and for them to understand that we are the same human being.

Something is terribly with the world today.


'Parent shouting Allahu Akbar' beheads Paris teacher 'for showing pupils cartoons of the Prophet in class': Terrorist is then shot dead by cops following chase

So many things wrong from numerous actors in this incident.

While the parents action cannot be condone. The action of the Paris teacher and police and macron cannot be condone either.

The Paris teacher act of showing the cartoons to pupil was an assault and act of terrorism on segments of the Paris population.
Equally inexcusable is the shooting by police of the parent. The parent has a right to defend his action in court.
Macron's judgemental defense of the teacher's action as freedom of expression is also inexcusable.
It can be argued that freedom of expression ends when it causes blatant harm and assaults the whole being of segments of society.

There are actually a lot of Chinese Americans that support Trump. And applaud Trump’s tough stance towards China. They generally fall into two groups:

1). New Chinese immigrants that take advantage of government welfare (healthcare, housing, etc..), and likes Trump’s tough stance on immigration. They don’t want other immigrants to come in and compete for government subsidies.

2). Highly educated Chinese Americans that hate the CCP. They grew up under the Cultural Revolution. Their parents were intellectuals and suffered greatly during that period. They have a deep, ingrained hatred towards the CCP.

Not true in my experience. The 2 groups that may favor Trump are as follows.
(1) Some high income earners (not necessarily better educated) that favors the republican's policy of favoring the wealthy.
(2) Anti-CCP groups (not necessarily related cultural revolution) that just the hates the CCP.

These are the exceptions. Otherwise, Most everyone else I know disfavor Trump.

I've never even heard of an Asian person who supports Trump and all my friends are Asian. Of course I "support" him cus he's messing up America but I don't think that's what they're talking about here...

Caveat: Basically all my friends are MD, PhD, or at least Masters so higher education is my sample bias. If all the Asians who have trouble keeping the lights on or are on welfare like Trump, I wouldn't know.
FLG is fully backing Trump. A lot of the the Chinese you see publically supporting Trump will likely be from that group. Having a blind activist speak at a trump rally seems like the kind of shit they would pull.

I'm watching this unfold on social media. And I easy wondering where's the condemnation from the west.

Violence from the authority is far more than anything dealt out in hong kong. With arrest of leaders. Etc. Yet not a peep from the west.

Thai protests: Tens of thousands gather again in mass defiance of government
Rest of the story from the "impartial" BBC.

A lot of Weibo comments point to an earlier accident in China when the rocker Xu Wei recited a passage from the Qoran during a performance. For reasons I fail to understand a lot of Muslim got offended and things were quickly getting out of hand. The Chinese authority then stepped in and pulled Xu Wei's albums from record stores and things quieted down. Say what you will about the Chinese government's stability over justice approach, it probably saved Xu Wei's life.

In any case, given the French schadenfreude over Kunming knife attacks, I hope some Chinese media has the guts to tell the French it's the time to stop being free speech fundamentalists.
Yes you're probably right. I forgot about the terrorist attack in kuming. And I also forgot about how the West and France steadfastly refused to call it a terrorist attack. Yet, when knife attack in London on a single person is named terrorist attack. And the attack in France of the journalists led every one in the west calling it we are Charlie hebdo. Gee

China passes export-control law following US moves

SHANGHAI: China passed a law restricting exports of controlled items, allowing the government to act against countries that abuse export controls in a way that harm's China's interests, state media said.

The Xinhua news report late on Saturday did not name any target countries, but the United States last month angered Beijing with curbs on exports to Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp , China's biggest chipmaker, and it has taken various steps against Huawei Technologies Co and other companies.

China and the United States have clashed over issues including trade, human rights, technology and the new coronavirus, which was first detected in China.

The new Chinese law, passed on Saturday by the National People's Congress Standing Committee, the country's top legislative body, will take effect on Dec. 1, Xinhua said.

Controlled items include military and nuclear products, as well as other goods, technologies and services and relevant data, according to a statement on the National People's Congress website.

It said the law was "formulated for the purpose of safeguarding national security and interests."

In August, China's commerce ministry issued a revised list of technologies that are banned or restricted for export.

Japan PM Suga sends offering to Yasukuni Shrine for war dead - NHK

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga has sent an offering to the controversial Yasukuni Shrine for war dead to coincide with its autumn festival, public broadcaster NHK reported on Saturday.

It would be Suga’s first such offering to the shrine since taking office last month. His predecessor, Shinzo Abe, had also regularly sent offerings via an aide on the anniversary of Japan’s surrender in World War Two and during the shrine’s spring and autumn festivals, refraining from visiting in person to avoid angering China and South Korea.

The shrine, in Tokyo, is seen by Beijing and Seoul as a symbol of Japan’s past military aggression because it honours 14 Japanese wartime leaders convicted as war criminals by an Allied tribunal as well as war dead.

Abe’s pilgrimage to the shrine in 2013 sparked outrage in South Korea and China and an expression of “disappointment” from the United States.

Suga made a visit to the shrine in August 2011, according to a post on his official blog, well before becoming the Abe government’s chief cabinet secretary in December 2012.

The South Korean government “expresses deep regret that Japan’s government and congressional leaders have again dedicated an offering to the Yasukuni Shrine which glorify Japan`s past invasions,” the foreign ministry said in a statement on Saturday.

It said it urged Japanese leaders to face up to history and show “humble and genuine reflection” through action with the launch of a new cabinet.

Ties between Tokyo and Seoul have remained strained due to bitter memories of Japan’s 1910-1945 colonisation of the Korean peninsula, including a dispute over compensation for Koreans forced to work on Japan’s sites during wartime. Tokyo says the matter was settled by a 1965 treaty normalising bilateral relations.

Abe visited Yasukuni on Sept. 19, days after resigning as Japan’s leader.

Good bye South Korea Japan front to contain China.

It's a bit early, but if the trajectory remains, in a few years we'll discuss whether Suga is a Chinese plant or something like that.
