#freemiao propaganda goes terribly wrong: when german media is faster than chinese justice and holier than the lord christ

Angela Köckritz and German DIE ZEIT embrace for yet another round of China-bashing

Crass and disturbing piece by Angela Köckritz, ‘China correspondent’ for DIE ZEIT, parading her emotional baggage and anti-China sentiments before the latest crackdown on corrupt lawyers in China. It makes for fascinating reading largely because she is so rich of victim-mentality. She doesn’t even hide her political motives of regime change, and at the same time exposes her own totalitarian beliefs.

These things need to be said over and over again

"Thanks for letting yourself go, Mr. Pattberg. These things need to be said over and over again. We are bombarded with anti-Chinese propaganda in our media. I think editors are so convinced in their prejudices that they don't realize they are publishing half-truths and lies.
In any case, let's trade: China can develop Western rule of law, and the West can develop Chinese effort and ingenuity. When Americans rail at Chinese lack of copyright and patent protection, I remember that when Dickens visited America in the 19th century, he found many unlicensed editions of his works. Strict patent and copyright laws are a luxury that developing economies can best do without.
I noticed recently in a list of members of the Council on Foreign Relations that there were no Chinese names or organizations. Plenty of Japanese ones, however. The desire to make China an enemy starts at the top." --vanisle1

China-watchers Gady ‘Shady’ Epstein, Chris ‘Buckfast’ Buckley, and Michael ‘the Knife’ Forsythe...

"Some top tier China-watchers –the likes of Gady ‘Shady’ Epstein, Chris ‘Buckfast’ Buckley, and Michael ‘the Knife’ Forsythe, etc.– probably decided that “This Joshua is epic material; we hold him up there against Evil China and the Communist Party.” (They mostly coordinate their output.)"

Chinese Student Shaming by CNN Katie Hunt
In a feisty propaganda piece by Katie Hunt at CNN (in Hong Kong), entitled ‘Fraud frenzy? Chinese seek U.S. college admission at any price‘ she and her ‘Chinese assistants’ generalize and paint a cruel picture of mass-fraud and universal deception committed by Chinese students coming out of mainland China. They are submitting almost perfect applications. They pay ridiculously high tuition fees in cash. [...]

A DINOSAUR, A DINOSAUR about Chinese Lack of Creativity! (CARLY FIORINA)


Carly Fiorina and the case for Chinese lack of creativity

China has already more millionaires than Japan, Germany, and Great Britain combined. Only in US politics, where the ruling elites belong to the dinosaurs, does the myth of Chinese lack of creativity hold its sway.

One who is on a horseback doesn't know the sufferings of those who walk

Melissa 'Harvard Isn't Everything' Chen explains in a Huff Post blog that Harvard isn't really that important, even though she brands herself with 'Harvard' (see thumbnail below). Clever marketing. And a tat of healthy hypocrisy, I guess.
Go to my quick response at EWD 'Yes, I went to Harvard. Yes,that does matter.'

Oxford's New Global Language Initiative Celebrates Segregation and Purity of Languages

Read: Celebrating Segregation and Purity of Languages
OXFORD - British nostalgia about its lost Empire and the good-old European world order in which the races, cultures, and languages were clearly separated (and must remain so, in the eyes of Anglophone scholarship across the world, sadly) reflects in its recent ambition to "curate the content of 100 languages" under the misleading project title: 'Oxford's New Global Initiative'. The content in question, of course, already exists. It is just a sneaky attempt at content farming under one's own OUP brand. This aside, this talk about the future of 'Global Language' it's a blatant rip-off of your author's philosophies, published widely and generously across the globe. But while it is flattering to see one's ideas influencing the way we are going to write in the future, it is heart-breaking to see that Oxford Press "borrows" and abuses certain key words and tags such as "Global Language" for its own perverted, ideological cause to keep the world languages segregated, instead of uniting them into one single future global language, as the original philosophy was intended:
The vocabularies of the world’s languages do not overlap, they add up. Translation is something else. It is a form of cultural genocide. Oxford University Press must find the “untranslatables” of each culture, its names, brands, and originalities, and introduce them into the Future Global Language. --The
