Sun Yang, A Double Standard and Perhaps Sinophobia

 

There was the case of the Chinese swimmer, Sun Yang, who was labelled as a drug cheat by the Australian media. What’s more, Sun Yang was not just a drug cheat but he also labelled as a bully. Of course this flared up tensions with the Chinese people.

It’s hypocrisy for Australians to call out the Chinese from a high horse after their very own swim team admitted to doping in 2012. Also let’s look at Darren Kane’s article on double standards, which really explains the how unfair the media has been towards Sun Yang.

Perhaps Yang got off comparatively light, but he didn’t escape punishment. Consider then this conundrum: why is Yang roundly pilloried, yet Cilic can compete at the same Games in the bubble of “tranquility” (whatever that means) idealised by the IOC? Neither Cilic nor Yang were found to have doped intentionally. – Darren Kane, SMH

Kane was talking about how Cilic had taken drugs in similar circumstances to Sun, yet Sun was crucified by the media and Cilic was able to compete untarnished. Is it fair? or is it Sinophobia?

Then there’s the French Swimmer, Camille Lacourt, who also accused Sun Yang of cheating and followed it up with this tasty line:

I don’t like being beaten by a Chinese – Camille Lacourt

Of course, not all people are attacking Sun Yang are due to him being Chinese but this type of discrimination exists. As a Chinese person, I’ll say it. People think I am inferior, you can feel it, they make comments about Made in China goods and how Chinese people just copy others. It’s a sad state for Chinese cultural power, since people either don’t know that China can produce high quality products or that many of the world’s inventions were created by the Chinese, but honestly, the point is, Sinophobia exists.

Yes, the Chinese attack on Mack Horton’s instagram was wrong and childish but honestly, the comments I saw on social media. The stuff in regards to how ‘all Chinese’ are cheaters, how we have a cheating culture. That hurts you know. It’s like also though Australia conveniently forgets that one in twenty Australians have some Chinese heritage.

I mean, how can you judge the morality of 1.3 billion people over the actions of a few, even if you think Sun Yang was in the wrong?

 

Lying Apologetically – Councillor Kelvin Ho

Thank you to Same Same and Crikey who helped to push this story forward enough,so that at the very least we got an apology of some sort sort. Even if it is filled with lies and insincerity .

Cr Ho Right of Reply 28062016 – link to the PDF of the apology.

Let’s go through his lies, one by one.

Councillor Ho: Late last week a number of social media outlets started to report on comments that I had made in a private WeChat group.

The HighFun Wechat group is a public WeChat group. Highfun Media, regularly uses it akin to a Facebook page to post their streams and media releases. Anyone can join and there is no application process.

Councillor Ho: The comments were on the topic of same sex marriage. I am very disappointed that through translation from Chinese to English these comments have been misinterpreted to allege that I think that there is a connection between same sex marriage and bestiality.

I have been able to get a quote from Dr Fran Martin, from the University of Melbourne, who is a published professor in these topics, that the translations are accurate.

Councillor Ho: This is not true and I apologise for any offence that has occurred. I have no objection to same sex marriage but was repeating comments that I had heard from other sources to show that there is a variety of views in the public on this issue.I realise now that sharing these comments, even though they were not my own, was insensitive and hurtful to people from the LGBTI community and has caused offence. I offer my sincere apology to the community and to the Council. Cr Kelvin Ho

If Kelvin Ho didn’t mean what he said and was so sorry, then why did he ask the rest of the chat group to change their display name and picture to his?

changemyname

Kelvin Ho (Yalichao): Haha, then everyone should change their name and picture to mine, then they won’t be able to tell which one is which. Good plan

PCC: I’ll become Yalichuan…

Yailbiao: Yaliguo

Lei: Hahaha, Yalibiao…your name is so funny…hahaha


Okay, I have 71 screenshots to be translated but honestly the other matter is just boring stuff, where he diverts his supporters to berate me for destroying his ‘freedom of speech’ and saying that I’m a ‘small man’ for even caring about what he says. Anyway, those are just personal attacks. I won’t translate all sexual flirting he does with women in the chat rooms.

I have already been removed from one chat room, and people have been telling me that he is furthering the hate of refugees/other immigrants/LGBTI people still in those other chat rooms. If I was to release all the screenshots, then you’d have a pretty poor view of this section of the Chinese community, where most of the people agree with his discriminating comments towards refugees and the LGBTI community.

 

Liberal Councillor Says Same Sex Marriage Leads to Bestiality

 

Liberal members have been campaigning heavily within Chinese chatrooms on the social networking application known as “WeChat”. It is has become incredibly hard to not find a Liberal member spreading their agenda. Once certain prolific member is Glen Eira City Councillor Kelvin Ho. He has recently been featured on my blog quite a few times, but recently he has gone into overdrive mode in regards to spreading his conservative and even extremist views.

Proof that this is Calvin Ho’s WeChat account, he goes by the username, Yalichao. Same profile photo as well. Also multiple photos of himself giving speeches to the Chinese community on his ‘Moments’ (similar to a Facebook wall).

Sam:

“I suddenly wonder … is the ultimate aim of homosexuals sex with someone of their same sex? In that case I’m sure that bestiality occurred in ancient times as well…. so… is that genetic too? So i don’t think that the ancient practice of (men) keeping toyboys in ancient times can really advance this case

 

Councillor Kelvin Ho:

“Sam, you’ve hit the nail on the head, at the moment the problem is that same sex legislation has become trendy meaning it will probably pass. Experts warn that if the legislation passes then it is likely that bestiality laws will come next, then what? Australia follows case law, which means that once a precedent has been set, then a debate can occur, which is when the real problem arises”

 

I have more of Kelvin’s conservative outlook saved, but I trust that no one really wants to hear what he says, so I will keep them safe unless people ask.

Views of the Chinese Liberals

PLEASE NOTE: These are mostly the views of the Nouveau Riche and International Students who came post 2000, as well as the Chinese Liberal Association. Not all Chinese people have these views.

Recently, the Liberal Party have been working hard on the Chinese community in their 2016 Federal Election campaign, announcing Chinese background candidates such as George Hua and Phillip Liu in safe Labor seats in order to garner more Chinese votes. However, the most outspoken is a certain councillor Kelvin Ho.

Glen Iris City Councillor Kelvin Ho, speaks out his views on the election. He is very active on WeChat, the social networking tool of choice for Chinese people at the moment. Currently he is in multiple different Chinese community WeChat groups, where he popularly spreads his agenda.

Kelvin Ho:

Every three years, Australian citizens exercise their voting power to decide the future of the nation. If Labor is elected, Chinese people will meet with very unfavourable circumstances. They are opposed to the Australian-Chinese Free Trade Agreement and they also have tried to create laws to stop Chinese investments, then also allow huge amounts of Asylum seekers to enter our borders who will further burden our hard working tax payers. Friends, it is now your chance to use your holy vote, to support your dream policies, help us on election day.

Kelvin Ho then replies to an unknown person in regards to why they should vote for the Liberal party. (WeChat doesn’t let you see comments from other people unless you are also mutual friends).

Kelvin Ho:

 

The Australian election will happen on the 2nd of July! The differences between Liberal and Labor are:

  1. Liberal have always been kind to the Chinese; Labor only talk about how Chinese people are stealing local jobs!
  2. The Liberal Party is very positive towards skilled migration, foreign investment; Labor are protectionists.
  3. The Liberal Party seek to have a fair society, where the harder you work, the more you get in return; whilst Labor steals tax money to support lazy people.
  4. The Liberal Party is all cutting governmental spending and taxes, you can do what you want with the money you own; the Labor Party is all about taking your money and spending it.
  5. Liberal supports entrepreneurs, especially for small business; Labor refuses to cut taxes for small businesses.
  6. The Liberal Party supports a free market, having trade agreements with China, Japan and Korea in order to build the economy; Labor and the unions are absolutely opposed to Chinese investments.

Enough on the views of Kelvin Ho, here are the viewpoints of his supporters in his newly created WeChat group for the election.

Seven:

It’s all logically very simple. If you are poor, you support Labor. If you are a businessmen, a person who makes money, you will support Liberal. Only by making money and creating more business can you give more tax to the country, then will the nation be better! Stupid cunt Labor only knows how to spend money not how to make good policies for businesses

IMG_4291.PNG

You Zhi Zhe Shi Jing Cheng:

Labor are so similar to the Chinese Communist party😀

Raymond:

Yes

Deakin Big Police:

If we look at it on the left-right spectrum, Labor are equal to communist parties or perhaps socialist parties

Similar to the North Korean Worker’s Party

Cowboy Dick:

Those who are poor but with ambition should vote for Liberal, those who are poor and have given up on life should vote for Labor

Now, that’s enough for now. Please bear in mind, as a long standing member of the Chinese community, these people are currently the majority of the new overseas Chinese community in Melbourne.

Lack of Asian Rolemodels Even in Recent Media

I am talking about whitewashing and stereotypes. This is a topic that has been covered by many. Even John Oliver has covered this topic, but it would seem that there is not even traction yet or most  western companies just seem to outright prefer having a majority White cast in a increasingly globalist society.

Trying to Fit in with Self Deprecating Humour

Oh, you might have seen pictures of this “Asian female P plater #noshame” driver floating around Facebook, Reddit or other media, and it should really irk you. It only reinforces the nation that the self derogatory identity crisis of Asians  stay even when you’re an adult.

You’re probably thinking why if this matters at all, she’s probably just making a joke. Yes she is, she’s making a joke at the expense of other Asians, Asians who might think that their race does not denote whether they are a good driver or not.

She cannot be the one to blame, it’s a society wide problem, where Asians in Australia or in the west in general, have an identity crisis. She is a reflection of a reinforcement of stereotypes, a racial group in which the majority are seen as perpetually different. These generalisations stick. Think about the Asian kids who want to be in an industry to do with driving, be it a race car driver or just a simple delivery person, how do you think they’d feel?

Most Asians go through a phase of ignorance and consistently deprecate themselves to fit in, myself included. I used to make jokes about my own eyes when I was in primary school. I did not stop until I graduated from highschool, in which an incident in one of my first university classes changed me. An Asian student picked up a pen that a White classmate had dropped. He threw it back and missed.

“Sorry I’m Asian and I can’t throw”

The White classmate chuckled. The Asian classmate gave a sad smile. I think it was in that moment, I saw how cringe-worthy it was. I, might not be the best athlete but I do think myself capable of performing physical activities with hand eye co-ordination with no issue.

What I am trying to state, is that if you’re an Asian, don’t let others hold you back, don’t let stereotype and generalisations bind you. Look at people like Jeremy Lin, who fought against racism and constant discrimination to make it into the NBA, they used to tell him to go to band practice, when he turned up for basketball. Your life is not define by your ATAR or GPA. We are all human, and we might not all start off with a blank slate due to the contexts of where we are born, but it is close enough to one if you are lucky enough, and you should choose or try to amend whether you excel at something or not.
