别有用心 (biéyǒuyòngxīn): ulterior motives

Former Foreign Ministry Spokesman Qin Gang: “Those who claim that the Chinese government supports hackers have ulterior motives.”

"Those with ulterior motives" is a phrase often used by The government and official media often blame social unrest on people who “don’t understand the actual situation” lead by those with “ulterior motives.”

Netizens complain this logic suggests that those who are critical of the government have no legitimate grievances and are only lashing out against the government as the pawns of nefarious instigators.
