Person of the Week: Secretary Leung
Nickname for Leung Chun-ying (梁振英), who became the Chief Executive and President of the Executive Council of Hong Kong in 2012. There is speculation that Leung is a closeted member of the Chinese Communist Party.
Secretary is a high position in the Chinese Communist Party. For example, the mayor of a Chinese city is also that city’s municipal Communist Party Committee secretary.
Congratulations, Secretary Leung. I hope you won’t forget to pay your party fees!
Congratulations, Hong Kong, on officially joining the Celestial Empire. Secretary Leung will start rolling in the cash now.

These are the words of China’s online “resistance discourse,” used to mock and subvert the official language around censorship and political correctness.
