Using Animal Rights As A Veil

Please note: Before you read this article, please understand that I do not condone the harm of animals in anyway.

Background

Albert Wang and Leo Zhao both Chinese international students were charged in late 2015 for an incident related to the beating of animals, here is a link to the video (NSFW). Wang was charged with community service, a fine and a ban on owning animals.

Wang’s purchase of another Husky emotionally triggered Claudia Baker to start a change.org petition to deport the offenders. At the time of writing this article the petition has already reached around 5500 signatures, quickly closing on it’s goal of 7500. I do not know why 7500 is the goal, perhaps it is Peter Dutton’s favourite number.

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?

 

Chinese Students Allegedly Robbed By Armed Men – Alleged Police Inaction

Please all take this with a grain of salt, as this is only one side of the story.

The story has flared up once again in terms of Chinese students being allegedly  robbed. This horribly written article though quite informational, documents the robberies which I will translate.

I will not translate the two previous cases again, which I have covered already over here.

Little Emperors and Right Winged Views

Now, this might seem like a continuation of the post “Chinese Students Allegedly Robbed on Campus” but it’s really not, it’s more of a rant on how disconnected with reality the nouveau riche Chinese are.  Yes, I have covered this subject before but it’s become a thorn in my mind, something I cannot get my mind off. So pretty much, the Africans robbing Chinese news is once again being spread around the Australian Chinese community. Now, I am all for spreading news in order to ensure the safety of others, but what I am not happy for, is the racially charged agenda behind most of these news stories.

Before you scroll down and read, these comments and views are mostly held by a super rich and spoiled minority, and not all Chinese people. They are grouped as Tuhao 土豪 (uncouth nouveau riche), Fuerdai 富二代(second generation rich), Guanerdai 官二代(second generation official) in China.

Now, bear in mind, these people that I am talking about, are the Gina Rineharts of the East. They have no idea that people actually have to go out and work to get money. They have no idea that you actually have to pay back the money on your credit card. No, they live their lives with little responsibility, they live their lives with the world focused onto them. They are the protagonist.

The Hong Kong Riots and Why It All Peeves Me Off

Okay, I’m not a fan of the Chinese communist government at all. They suppress information and alter history. They’ve destroyed culture and twisted the truth so many times, that some parts of history we will never know now. However, what’s going on with the Hong Kong Riots, isn’t that far off. The western press have been writing this as some David vs Goliath of battle between Hong Kong and China, when it’s more like an abusive child throwing his toys at his parents.

Tensions have flared up again in Hong Kong. Riots have sprung up over the eviction of illegal street vendors, or this is what the Western media sites have been reporting. There’s another side of the story, and that is this riot was very much planned and instigated by the right wing extremist group, Hong Kong Indigenous.  No one really talks about how all these Hong Kong Indigenous groups are causing havoc on the streets. Like actual havoc.

New Age of Mythology Expansion Brings Good and Bad News

Good news, After a long 12 year wait, Age of Mythology fans will finally receive a new expansion! It’s called Tale of the Dragon, and set to be released on the 28th of January, 2016.

I myself, being Chinese, is extra excited that the new expansion focuses on the Chinese pantheon. Having loved Age of Mythology when it was first released, back when I was in primary school. I used to grind out on the demo of the game for hours, as I could not afford the full game. Once, I was able to buy the full game with the Titan expansion, the first thing I did when I got home, was always to load up the game. Now it’s going to be even better, being able to play as a pantheon of Gods that I can culturally relate to.

Sadly though, there’s been quite some controversy in regards to the artwork of the new game, and this where the bad news begins.
