爱国贼 (àiguózéi): patriotraitor
A play on the word “traitor” (màiguózéi 卖国贼), a patriotraitor is someone who betrays his/her country’s interests while outwardly professing patriotism. Netizens pejoratively refer to people who are uncritically nationalistic as either patriotraitors or shit youth.
Fudan University student Tao Weishuo earned the title of patriotraitor in a 2009 town hall with Barack Obama, where he objected to President’s discussion of Internet censorship.
