On September 12, a Chinese Communist Party mouthpiece, People’s Daily, posted a group of 10 comics on its official Weibo account. It says, “10 comics questioning Pompeo and his like: stop deceiving yourself and the rest. Some U.S. politicians spent too much time defaming China, so ‘would Pompeos take a few seconds to consider the following questions?’
Dad, are we a rule-abiding country?
Then why do we always break our promises？
Dad, are we an inclusive country?
Then why always judging others through colored glasses?
Dad, are we a peace-loving country?
Then my teacher must be wrong. He said there’s only 16 years in our 240-year history without a war.
Are we a responsible country?
Then why owing the WHO 80 million contributions?
Dad, are we a science-respecting country?
Then why saying taking disinfectants can prevent or cure COVID-19?
Dad, do we value equal human rights the most?
Then what’s the “BLM” all about?
Dad, are we a confident country?
Then why can’t tolerate a competitor?
Dad, do we have the best health system in the world?
Then why have we got the most COVID-19 cases?
Dad, are we a reasonable country?
Then why imposing sanctions on other countries so easily?
Dad, are we a “clean” country?
Then what’s PRISM and ECHELON all about?
Obviously, this is what a Chinese idiom says, “a thief yelling ‘Stop, thief!’” To people who know the truth, it is nothing but a propaganda tactic. But the comics is not only meant to defame Secretary Pompeo , but more likely to delude the ordinary people in China. Again, it worked. The absolute majority of the comments below are criticizing or mocking the U.S., praising the CCP, or showing blind confidence. It’s hard to distinguish which of them are “five cent” internet armies, and which are real Weibo users. CCP’s great firewall is imposing such danger to the whole world as well as China that the U.S. need to stop providing the CCP with funds and technologies, and take down the firewall immediately, because NO ONE can afford to have 1/5 of the world population to be in any of the above scenarios! Chinese people deserve the truth!
