Diaoyu Islands Are Xinhua’s

Last week, writer Lang Yaoyuan wrote on his verified Sina Weibo account that not a single publication in Liaoning Province dared publish a citizen-produced “protect the islands” advertisement. The Liaoning Daily explained that it “must thoroughly adhere to Xianhua News Agency’s manuscripts.” Many netizens complained, “Even patriots have to be examined and approved.” Others joked that “the facts prove the Diaoyu Islands belong to Xinhua.” LangYaoyuan: Liaoning Papers Censor Ad: The Chinese government objected and the Chinese people protested after Japan brazenly announced its purchase of the Diaoyu Islands. Kowloon Harbor, a business on Shenyang’s Middle Road, invested over 500,000 yuan in seven print media journals in the city to publicize that “the Diaoyu Islands belong to China!” Yet not a single Liaoning newspaper published the advertisement. The Liaoning Daily explained that it “must thoroughly adhere to Xianhua News Agency’s manuscripts.” If the people publicize the message to protect the islands, the government must examine and approve that message. Other Weibo users took Lang’s complaint further:   DiYa: The facts prove the Diaoyu Islands belong to Xinhua and to the Party. They have nothing to do with the rabble. 狄崖:事实证明,钓鱼岛是新华社的,是党的,跟屁民们没关系 GuilinDailyLaoNa: Even patriots have to be examined and approved… 桂林日报老那:爱国也需要审批…… tigerfishhome: P people should get out of the way and let Party members go first. At the critical moment, 80 million Party members will boldly move forward. 虎鱼生活家:P民退后,让党员先上。关键时间,8000万党员会挺身而出的。 insider_outsider: Whether that ad gets published or not, they still get off. Did you see that full-page spread in a Russian paper declaring “the Kuril Islands are Russia’s?” They printed a photo of their president standing on one of the islands. Actually, my biggest question is, who in China owns the Diaoyu? It certainly isn’t me, and it certainly isn’t you. Maybe it’s “the people.” Seeing people who don’t have any property ...

One Response to Diaoyu Islands Are Xinhua’s

  1. Bo Peep says:

    “P people should get out of the way and let Party members go first. At the critical moment, 80 million Party members will boldly move forward.”

    Ha, ha! So right. The party members urge people on it won’t be noticed when they pick up their loot and flee to other countries to avoid facing any military response to China’s oh-so-calculated aggression. What ingrates to the U.S. for all the help they have received, what backstabbing!

    How disgusting this Chinese looting, arson and fascist behavior is which is obviously supported by the Chinese Communist Party and military pig-like greed.

    Meanwhile, a whole bunch of Japanese businesses are picking up and moving out with American enterprise soon to follow given the huge ingratitude of the Chinese to two of the countries who have most helped the country up off its knees by tons of economic and humanitarian assistance.

    Obviously the Chinese nationals need to be immediately removed from American schools instead of being provided with fancy Harvard degrees and free scholarships which they consume and then spit at the allies of the U.S. Time to close their Confucian schools and send them all packing. The U.S. has enough Chinese language experts already and we don’t need any more immigration, especially from corrupt Communist countries nor fascists that lack even the basic senses of morals or human rights and values.
