Malaysian Chinese Views

There are quite a number of Malaysian Chinese who hold similar view as mine. A number of them are highly articulate enough to debunk the views of those who choose to  follow the Western turd media blindly. I feel that the one-sided report by these Western turd media, have united many  Chinese all over the worldand also made them become aware of the anti-China mongering by these so-called free media.
 
CNN – Chinese Negative News
BBC – Biased Broadcasting Corporation

Susan,
Please read all the facts, including history, before posting a bias piece on Tibet and China.
Most of your readers’ analysis about the current brouhaha is correct – historically and politically. Tibet – including nether provinces like Xinjiang and Gansu – for example, have always been part of China.
 
Unlike Malaysia, the more than 100 minority tribes in China have been encouraged to preserve and practise their unique cultures and languages. They have been granted the same rights as the majority Han people, and their lifestyles have benefited tremendously in the past 20 years since Deng opened China. You have to be in China 20 years ago to see how poor these people were, with no adequate food or shelter.
The Dalai Lama – sporting Gucci loafers and enjoying non-vegetarian food – is a tool used by the US and the West to badger China whenever the opportunity arises. In this case, it is the Olympics.
 
Most people did not follow the news coverage closely, or could not since most of it is Western and bias. For example, some of the photographs released by the Western media on the recent riots in Lhasa were actually taken three years ago! This was because the army’s uniform had changed and the PLA had started to wear new uniforms three years before the riots this year!
 
The recent comments by CNN anchor Rafferty has striked a rare nerve in every Chinese – mainland and overseas – because it is a typical remark by a patronising, Western journalist who makes comments about China recklessly and without regard to the Chinese race. Note the number of demonstrations in and outside China against CNN.
 
The US have no right to pontificate on Tibet – look at its track record in Iraq and elsewhere. Iraqians are dying by the dozens daily and civil society have degenerated into anarchy under the supremist power’s “intervention for human rights and democracy.” Even the Americans themselves are questioning Bush’s WMD lies.
When the June 4 student movement in 1989 took place, the Western press reported “hundreds of thousands of demonstrators died in China.’
In the end, it came to less than a thousand, but nobody wanted to read or acknowledge that the media had reported erroneously on the subject.
The same here when you posted that TCHRD had inflated the figure by 100 times ( from 324 to 2,300) the number of people detained and arrested. Fact is, the number 324 seems rather little, and the TCHRD wanted to believe that 2,300 was the “correct number ” instead . This is worse than the tabloid sensationalism practised in the UK.
 
The likes of CNN is typical of the ugly Western media confronting a now more powerful and informed China. China has grown and will continue growing and nobody could stop that. The current US economy and the once mighty US dollar is on the brink of a collapse – but China continues to support and hold the largest amount of US treasury bonds and shares. China and India continues to subsidise the US by their cheap exports and continued investments. And so on.
Tibet is just the kicking ball for the West hankering for their lost supremacy in what is known as Asia.
Never again will that supremacy rear its head with the rise of China, and India in these regions. The Chinese – both the Goverment and its people – will no longer stomach quietly the insults and belittling racist remarks made against them by racist spin doctors officially known as anchors and journalists.
Let us not be hoodwinked by the crafty Dalai Lama and his US CIA cohorts in the guise of Tibetans striking for “democracy and fredom.” If anything, let us stay neutral in the issue and not take sides unthinkly.

Susan,
We all adhere to free speech and democracy, but we also place the twin tenets of ethics and truth high in our list.
I presume you would apply the same dictum both at home and abroad where politics and history are concerned.
 
If you haven’t availed yourself to the study of history on subjects you choose to post on your blog, then you shouldn’t let opinions pass as facts and vice versa. Truth is the centrestone of journalism, and your credibility will erode quickly if you let slip of it.
 
The Dalai Lama and his gang before 1959 acted just like the Prince Bishops of Europe before they were outsted by more civilised rulers. Like I mentioned, 95% of the Tibetans were freed from bondages and slavery when the Chinese took over and everyone had equal rights under communism. Even during the Cultural Revolution in the Sixties, the Central Government left Tibet with its temples and monastries untouched unlike other Han denominated provinces, and the Tibetans were free to practise their religion.
 
Yes, China – with over 1 billion diverse people to house and feed – is and never will be perfect. So it is sheer hypocrisy of the Western world to judge her based on the Western world’s past and present records. Have we forgotten that Malaysia, along with most Asian countries, were COLONIES under them????
So, let’s just ignore that irritating oster who is not perfect either, and move on with what we need to fix at home in Malaysia.
HERE and NOW, not somwhere else.

Sue,
I agree absolutely with Lallang Exile.
At first I thought that your radical posturing was deliberate .. to arouse response to the issues raised, but now I am wondering if you are not, in truth, quite a radical by nature.
In this issue, the Western governments thru their grossly bias media added salt to injury after the violent “CIA-trained” professional Tibetan volunteer “rioters” murdered innocent Chinese – especially a young boy and young working girls – by slandering the Chinese government further as violent and oppressive, and causing “cultural genocide” – just as world attention were being focussed on the Olympic torch relays.
 
I ask you, how could a globalised media behave in such a manner and slandering an entire nation of people for the rest of the world to see and hear? Do you ever wonder if this is naught but American imperialism at work? Do you stop to wonder why is America doing this?
This mater is more than China. It tars all Chinese as sub humans; as people who are cruel and barbaric and consistently violates human rights. It is unspoken racism.
The campaign is also to stop China and her people from making progress in the world. If you are well read, you would know America’s hesitation in China coming out. Nixon was not exactly liked for going to China and opening the bamboo door!
So, where do you stand in this bigger picture? Are you going to be used by all these foreign so called “human rights” group to tarnish yourself and your fellow kind?
Be a bit more objective about the China issue. There are so many much more urgent and immediate areas in the world which needs the world attention. Why are they not getting it?
 
Just face it ok? The whole Tibetan issue is an American runned agenda. Without the American media or GWB, Sarkozy, and even UK’s Brown, focussing on it, Tibet and the Olympic torch relays would not be a sensational media story.
Fact is, many involved wittingly or unwittingly, are pawns in America’s great game.
Justice for the moment, is siding with China on this issue.

Susan,
Neither do I intend to argue over something that is beyond your knowledge to argue.
 
As a fair and balanced blogger, it’s an obligation on you to receive and evaluate the news in right perspectives. By publishing an absolute unsided piece of news from TCHRD, you’re making a hugh blunder for your lack of foresight, in not taking the counter argument from the Chinese Government or people before you published your horrible unbalanced piece of gabbage. FYI, TCHRD being a Tibetan extremist youth group, had been caught on many occassions for its outright deceit and lies. A good case is the recent riot in Lhasa where TCHRD published over 100s Tibetans being killed, without a single han chinese being killed. That’s outright disgusting when pictures of many Chinese of different ethnic groups were either burned alive, massacred or murdered.
The other irrational point that you wrote, “Police in Kuala Lumpur are in cohorts with the Chinese authorities. They are already issuing stern warnings against those who want to protest against the torch relay today” So what do you suggest to our police to do? Let the torch run turns into shambles – a failure for the world to see on how miserable M’sian are.
 
As a matter of fact, it’s exemplary of you to get your objective right in your mind. Beware of your own inner prejudice against the Chinese for holding the Olympic game. And for Christ’s sake, don’t pollute the game with your political contamination. It’ll do you a whole lot of goodwill and understanding from all of us.
