别有用心 (biéyǒuyòngxīn): ulterior motives
A phrase often used by the official media to blame foreign forces and domestic dissidents for social unrest and criticism towards Chinese government.
Netizens sometimes twist this phrase to mock the government.
Wengtao2015 (@翁涛2015): If you yell on street: "Diaoyu Islands belong to China!" You are a patriot. If you instead yell: "Outer Mongolia and Vladivostok belong to China!" You may be arrested as a mad person or someone who has ulterior motives! Why is that? (February 14, 2015)
