Anti-LGBTI fliers being handed out at Liberal MP Michael Sukkar’s safe schools information event for the Chinese community.

An information session on the safe schools program targetting the Chinese community was held today at the Melbourne headquarters of the Liberal Party. It was organised by ex-Hotham candidate George Hua and featured Deakin MP Michael Sukkar as the main guest speaker. The Event titled “Do you support sex ed being taught to your children earlier? Australia’s “Safe Schools Program” is it safe?” and was touted as being a purely informational event.

This event had been advertised through various Chinese media groups such as AusFocus and HighFun media, whose target audiences are generally first generation Chinese migrants.

It is likely the information could biased judging from the flyer pictured above, that were being handed out at the event. Dan Xie, whose contact details are on the fliers, had already told The Age last year that he was protecting Chinese culture.

Since I am of Chinese background, I decided to try and contact Mr Xie, on how he could claim to be representing the culture of over a billion very diverse people. Sadly, I could not reach Mr Xie through phone nor the WeChat. If he does reply, I will update it here with his response.

The Chinese flyer is written differently from the English version.

Have you heard of the Safe Schools Program?

The Safe Schools program educates children by teaching them to act like homosexuals and bisexuals, so that they will conform to new age ideas of gender, by letting student select which uniform and bathroom they wish to use.

The curriculum is setup like this: lesson one [Creating a safe space] (Page 10); lesson two [Same Sex Experiences] (pages 10-11); lesson three[Bisexual Experiences] (pages 11-12); lesson four [Transgender Experiences] (pages 12-13); lesson five [Intersex Experiences].

This is to indoctrinate children about the diversity of sexuality, schools will encourage children to see homosexuality and other orientations as equal so that they will experiment, experience and choose out of their own accord.

Please sign this national petition! New South Wales have already reached 17000 signatories, Victoria has already more than 5000.

Oppose [Safe Schools Program] curriculum’s indoctrination of children into new trendy sexualities!

Oppose the indoctrination of children with the concept of sexual diversity!

Protect the basic rights of parents and children’s futures!

Four Corners, Fairfax and Nick McKenzie, A Story of Biased Reporting

I wasn’t originally going to share it here. The reason was because Nick McKenzie contacted me from the recommendations of a friend, I did not want to hurt my friend’s relationship with him.

Sadly, Nick McKenzie’s biased reporting has gone too far, it is now starting to hurt the Chinese community at large. Recently when I was talking to some Chinese student association representatives, one of them cited how she was afraid to speak. She felt like she would be branded as more than she was. It’s got to the point of a red scare.

Jieh-Yung Lo, a Chinese community leader and activist outlines it well in his recent opinion piece on the Guardian.

…the concern I have is that this story will paint a picture that all current and future Chinese-Australians will behave like Huang Xiangmo and Chau Chak Wing if they decide to get involved in Australian politics.

What evolved from a story of investigation into foreign donations, a justified cause, has become a sweeping attack on the Chinese community as a whole. With so called mind reading ‘foreign experts’ like Merriden Varrall putting words into the mouths of 1.3 billion Chinese people, like she did in her AFR opinion piece.


About nearly two months ago, Nick McKenzie gave me a call. Claiming to be a investigative journalist from Four Corners, doing work on a report about Chinese Soft Power. The phone call did not go well as Mr McKenzie had already made up his mind on how the story would be told. Nick McKenzie had written the story beforehand, now he was merely filling in the blank spots with cherry picked evidence.

He thought I would know Taiwanese student associations and how they were being influenced and perhaps strongarmed by the Chinese government or Chinese students under government orders. I told him it was much more likely to be the opposite scenario, as I had been part of a Taiwanese student association, in which the local Taiwan diplomat even had a daughter in the group. I even remember a time where we had to make an entourage to welcome a Taiwanese delegate. I also remembered when Taiwanese students would bully Mainland students for not following Taiwanese independence ideology.

Of course, as we all remember, in his now infamous Four Corner’s piece, he paints the picture of a Chinese student association as some type of Red Guards club. Flurrying red Chinese flags and yelling ‘China’ like crazed Communist zealots. You see, despite what I told Mr McKenzie, on how Asian student associations at university all seem to have a level of government influence, he still went forward with his own narrative. He wanted to paint the Chinese community, the Australian Chinese people as the new eastern bogeyman. He wanted this big scoop of a story, he wanted his smug mug to be the one breaking the story of sneaky orientals.


Just looking at the banner of the Fairfax owned Sydney Morning Herald’s interactive page on ‘China’s Operation Australia’ you could feel the orientalist perspective they were taking. A big Chinese flag, adorned with revolving Australian bank notes and South China Sea maps. Like it was a big conspiracy and that any moment now the hourglass would break and the communists would pour into Australia. It even has 5 White journalists credited just below, legitimising it as true White Australian news. Now, this is how you construct a yellow peril.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I am all for cutting out all foreign influences from Australian politics, but why does Fairfax, who so readily advertises themselves  as independent journalism have to resort to such fearmongering tactics? This is not hitting back at the Chinese government, this is illustrating a image of Communist mongoloid hordes ready to take over Australia. The sneaky Chinaman and his nefarious plans to take over the mighty Western nation, thwarted by brave, shiny, white and chivalrous Nick McKenzie and co. Maybe Fairfax should get into writing some 1950’s comics, they already seem to have employed a time travelling orentialist artist as a web designer.


Come on, this should not even have to be said. Chinese people are people. Chinese people are individuals. We can think for ourselves. We aren’t easily brainwashed drones.  In the future just treat us as humans.

 

 

 

Racist Chinese WeChat Articles Goes Viral, With Elements of White Supremacy

Before you read this article, you should note that the writer exhibits extreme factors of racial inferiority and white worshipping and does not represent the mindset of all Chinese people. This is the equivalent of Breitbart and Stormfront type posts in the West and the people commenting and writing this stuff do not represent all 1.3 billion people in China. Please do not use racism to fight racism. 

A Chinese WeChat Media page recently posted a racially charged article against migrants of African descent.

Why The NY Time’s Title of ‘Goddess Ivanka’ Is Misleading

A week ago the New York Times published an article detailing the use of the word ‘Goddess’ by Chinese people to describe Ivanka Trump.

What’s worse is that this story became incredibly popular and soon everyone in the western media started sharing it. The story was re-used by sites like Medium, Yahoo and MSN soon after.

The story is incredibly misleading as it pushes a strong emphasis on the word ‘goddess’ without explaining the cultural context. They also fail explain that Mrs Wang, the Ivanka fan in the article, is no different from a fan of any other idol celebrity in China.

Taiwanese indigenous  people led by community leaders such as Mayaw Biho and Panai fighting for the land rights of their people. Many natives were evicted from their homes during the Japanese occupation and have yet to regain these sacred land, the indigenous people want Tsai to stop talking with her mouth and to take action instead by returning this land.

A group looking to reform the Republic of China’s consitution through ideas such as electoral reform as well as changing the 92 consensus. They ultimately want to pursue a goal of ‘permanent peace’ by re-uniting or adhering to more to the mainland. Much of their ideology is based on PRC Xi’s call to for global unity.  They hope to make Taiwan a shining example of liberalism and spread it to the mainland after uniting.
