吃饱了没事干的外国人 (chī bǎo le méi shì gàn de wàiguórén): foreigners who have eaten their fill and have nothing better to do

While speaking to a group of overseas Chinese in Mexico in 2009, Xi Jinping, China’s “heir apparent,” declared:

There are some foreigners who have eaten their fill and have nothing better to do then point their fingers at our affairs. China does not, first, spread revolution; second, export poverty and hunger; or third, cause trouble for you. What else is there to say?
有些吃饱了没事干的外国人,对我们的事情指手画脚。中国一不输出革命,二不输出饥饿和贫困,三不去折腾你们,还有什么好说的。

Xi’s remarks were embraced by the sphere of nationalist Chinese bloggers. The title of a blog post [zh] that originally appeared on Xinhua proclaimed, “Awesome! Xi Jinping bashes overly stuffed foreigners with nothing to do!” (习近平痛批有些吃饱了没事干的外国人,痛快!)
