    The 'Chinese National Feelings Getting Hurted' thread

    Some Chinese politicists are very quick to turn any slight against any Chinese person into a slight on the great nation of China.



    This week we have Chinese swimming drug cheat, Sun Yang.

    He complains that when he is stood up by an ocker on the podium (for being a drug cheat) that this is an affront to the Chinese people.

    Then he gets stood up again, this time by a brit.

    Be careful when criticising any Chinese person because you are also criticising China by proxy.

    Surprised he didn't declare the swimming pool as Chinese and the spectator's wallets as natural resources.

    there is probably a niche for a service to rate chins that try and book your hotel/ abnb etc

    or all the countries without a latin script so you can search names

    see before if they are likely to be worth the trouble

    Hong Kong protests: Brand 'witch hunt' takes over Chinese internet

    As the protests intensify in Hong Kong, international luxury brands are getting caught in the crossfire.

    Global brands such as Versace, Coach, Calvin Klein, Givenchy, ASICS, and Swarovski have all become tied up in controversy on the mainland this week for listing Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan as a separate countries or regions - not part of China - on their official websites or brand T-shirts.

    China's state media propaganda machine is running at full speed to counter the anti-Beijing voices, and many Chinese social media users are now involved in an online hunt for international companies seemingly not abiding by the "one country, two system" principle, which states that while Hong Kong enjoys "a high degree of autonomy" it is part of China.
    Versace: How the ball started rolling

    On 8 August, an image of a T-shirt by Italian fashion house Versace started making the rounds on social media. One Chinese web user wrote: "I discovered this recently, and wondered if the design of this T-shirt means that Versace is supporting Hong Kong independence?"

    By 11 August, the T-shirt was being called out by hundreds on Chinese social media for seeming to list Hong Kong and Macau as independent countries.

    Mainland China view the protests as terrorism against the Communist state and China.

    With overwhelming support for HK around the globe, the Chinese have to tread carefully...

    I had a group of 6 show up at a holiday rental in UK. Theyd booked for 2 and taken advantage of a low occupancy discount. So i refused them access.

    Another group arrived and claimed a property was too dirty. They hadn’t even made it inside the building.

    Neither group got their money back. The booking agents seem very aware of their tactics and as long as we follow the letter of our ts n cs they’ve so far always sided with us

    Arsenal-Manchester City game removed from schedules by China state TV

    China's state broadcaster CCTV has removed Sunday's Arsenal-Manchester City game from its schedule after comments made by Gunners midfielder Mesut Ozil, state media has reported.

    The 'Chinese National Feelings Getting Hurted' thread-_110146921_ozilbody-jpg

    Ozil posted on social media about the treatment of Uighur Muslims in China.

    Arsenal distanced the club from the German's views, saying it was "always apolitical as an organisation".

    The Global Times described Ozil's comments as "false" and claimed he had "disappointed" football authorities.

    In addition, the Chinese Football Association said Ozil's comments were "unacceptable" and had "hurt the feelings" of Chinese fans.

    The 'Chinese National Feelings Getting Hurted' thread-hqdefault-jpg

    CCTV will now show Sunday's game between Tottenham and Wolves, instead of a live broadcast of Arsenal's home match with the reigning Premier League champions.

    In his social media post Ozil, who is a Muslim, called Uighurs "warriors who resist persecution" and criticised both China and the silence of Muslims in response.

    China has consistently denied mistreating Uighur Muslims in the country.

    Rights groups say about a million people - mostly from the Muslim Uighur community - are thought to have been detained without trial in high-security prison camps.

    China says they are being educated in "vocational training centres" to combat violent religious extremism.

    In October, the US National Basketball Association suffered financial losses after an online comment from a team executive prompted a crisis in its relations with China.

    Houston Rockets' manager Daryl Morey had tweeted support for pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong.

    As a result, Chinese firms suspended sponsorship and telecast deals.
    Analysis

    Robin Brant, BBC China correspondent in Beijing

    A few weeks ago I asked someone who is an expert on China-UK relations if the Premier League could face an 'NBA moment' if or when a player criticised China in public.

    English football's top flight is such a global phenomenon, so diverse in its range of players, so vast in its audience spread.

    The answer to my question was clearly yes.

    The NBA's crisis in China showed how serious and how immediate the impact on commercial interests could be.

    So important is football to the UK and its soft power that very senior British diplomats have pondered the impact on UK China relations of something like this.

    The reaction to Ozil's comments appears more muted compared to Daryl Morey's Hong Kong support.

    China's state machinery went after the NBA, not just the man and club. On this occasion it's targeting Ozil and to a limited extent Arsenal.

    Any lasting damage here is likely to be sustained by him personally. Although there will also be some praise and support. You just won't hear about that in China's state-run media.

    Pound for pound, Chinese are probably our best, most productive migrants- and students. They are also our largest foreign investor, and export market. And just watch the growth in Chinese auto sales here continue to skyrocket. No cars are made here any more, and even the iconic Holden Commodore has been thrown on the trash heap.

    But of course they are all spies, their technology all spyware, and every investment a creeping takeover. Must be true, cus The donald said so. The China Card no longer works on the majority of the aussie population, who know that we are largely dependant on Chinese exports and investment for our cushy standard of living. Of course, for those that prefer a second or third world Australia just keep those Somali and South Sudanese immigrants coming, and tell those commies their dollars are no longer accepted. Dare ya.

    It seems that when Bellerin was slagging off the tories for this that and the other there was no need for Arsenal to distance themselves from him.

    Yet when Chinese lucre is involved...

    I guess so.

    But there are still licensed EPL games being shown in China legitimately, and they are paid for on the basis of whether or not it is Arsenal games that are screened.

    So if Arsenal games aren't shown then the club loses income.

    Screening of yesterday's game in China was cancelled.

    Did you not know that overseas broadcasters show every game live?

    So if they choose not to show it, it hurts the marketing, not the bottom line.

    Arsenal's share of that 564m is sealed, whether they show the games or not.

    However it might hurt the EPL if he keeps gobbing off and they decide to cancel the contract.

    Best thing Arsenal can do is cancel his contract and get rid, he's a liability now anyway.

    Chinese football fans have burned Arsenal football shirts and called on the club to fire star player Mesut Özil after he publicly criticised China’s treatment of Muslims in Xinjiang.


    On Friday, Özil, who is usually quiet on social media, posted a message on his Instagram profile describing Uighurs in the far north-western region of China as “warriors who resist persecution”.


    Posting the words against the backdrop of the flag of the short-lived East Turkestan republic, an area that is now Chinese-controlled Xinjiang, he wrote: “[In China] Qurans are burned, mosques were closed down, Islamic theological schools, madrasas were banned, religious scholars were killed one by one. Despite all this, Muslims stay quiet.”


    His comments have prompted a wave of anger in a country where Arsenal is hugely popular. Özil, who has more than 4 million followers on the Chinese microblog Weibo, is affectionately known as “272”, numbers that when pronounced sound like his name. China’s foreign ministry said on Monday that Özil had been “deceived by fake news.”


    Arsenal distance themselves from Mesut Özil comments on Uighurs’ plight

    “Do you know how Arsenal fans in China have spent the last two days?” one former fan posted on his Instagram profile. “They are struggling to understand how the club and idol they once loved has turned out to be a rumourmonger. Of course, if you intend to attack China, you are as insignificant in our hearts as dirty ants.”


    Another said: “As a Chinese football fan, I’m very disappointed. Why can’t you just focus on playing football? As a public figure, you should know what you can say, what you can do and be aware of the consequences.”


    On Weibo, a fan posted a video of football shirts bearing Özil’s previous numbers lit on fire. Others said they too planned to burn their shirts, while some said they planned to trash theirs. Some posted photos of Arsenal shirts or Özil’s jersey and wrote: “How disappointing.”


    Attempts over the weekend by Arsenal to distance itself from Özil’s comments failed to calm the situation, as fans said the midfielder should be fired. Several Chinese football fan sites have said they will stop posting news related to Özil, according to the Shanghai-based publication The Paper. A Chinese football simulation game said it would no longer produce Özil player roles or cards.


    The footballer’s comments and use of the national flag of East Turkestan, now used by independence activists, have triggered condemnation from the Chinese state, underlining the possibility that the club or the Premier League could be punished in the same way the NBA and the Houston Rockets were over general manager Daryl Morey’s support of anti-government protests in Hong Kong.


    Geng Shuang, a spokesman for China’s foreign ministry said the athlete should come to Xinjiang and “have a look”.


    “As long as he has common sense, can make a clear distinction between right and wrong, and upholds the principles of objectivity and fairness, he will see a different Xinjiang,” Geng said at a regular press briefing on Monday afternoon.


    Censors blurred out images of the flag in Özil’s post while the state broadcaster CCTV cancelled a broadcast on Sunday of Arsenal’s Premier League game against Manchester City. State media have criticised Özil’s comments as “disappointing”. The Chinese Football Association told local media it was “outraged and disappointed”.


    In a comment that has since been deleted, the editor of the Global Times, Hu Xijin, accused the footballer of essentially calling for global jihad against China. Asking Özil to provide examples of his allegations, Hu wrote: “This man is full of nonsense. Does he just want to encourage global jihad, using Xinjiang as an excuse?”

    China rebukes countries for congratulating Tsai Ing-wen after landslide Taiwan election win

    Beijing has slammed senior officials from the United States, Britain and Japan for congratulating Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen after her landslide election victory.
    Key points:

    Beijing reprimanded the countries for violating the One-China principle
    The principle states there is only one China, the People's Republic of China, and Taiwan is a province of China
    The US congratulated Ms Tsai on her re-election but only recognises Beijing, not Taipei

    The 'Chinese National Feelings Getting Hurted' thread-11863222-3x2-700x467-jpg

    Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Geng Shuang told reporters on Sunday that Beijing urged the international community to continue adhering to the "One-China principle".

    "We hope and believe that … [they will] understand and support the just cause of Chinese people to oppose the secessionist activities for 'Taiwan independence' and realise national reunification," he said.

    Ms Tsai, of the Democratic Progressive Party, was re-elected over the weekend with some 57 per cent of the popular vote, while Beijing-friendly rival Han Kuo-yu from the opposition party Kuomintang received just 39 per cent.

    In a statement on Twitter, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo congratulated Ms Tsai for her re-election and the self-ruling island's democratic election system.

    "Taiwan once again demonstrates the strength of its robust democratic system," Mr Pompeo tweeted.

    "Thank you President Tsai for your leadership in developing a strong US partnership."

    The 'Chinese National Feelings Getting Hurted' thread-11861428-3x2-700x467-jpg

    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden also extended his congratulations to Ms Tsai on Twitter, saying "you are stronger because of your free and open society".

    "The United States should continue strengthening our ties with Taiwan and other like-minded democracies," he wrote.

    Meeting with the de facto US ambassador to Taipei, William Brent Christensen, a day after the election, Ms Tsai said: "Taiwan's people once again use the vote in their hands to show the world the value of democracy."
    The woman China can't topple
    The woman China can't topple
    China's Government has made little effort to conceal its dislike of Taiwan's President Tsai Ing-wen, and her landslide re-election is a massive blow to Xi Jinping, writes Bill Birtles.

    Responding to questions about the congratulatory messages on Sunday, Mr Geng told reporters the election in Taiwan was "a local affair in China" and reprimanded the countries for violating the One-China principle.

    Beijing's One-China principle states there is only one China, the People's Republic of China, and Taiwan is a province of China.

    "China expresses its strong dissatisfaction and firm opposition to [the congratulatory messages] and has made solemn representations to the countries concerned," Mr Geng was quoted by state media Xinhua as saying.

    "We oppose any form of official exchanges between Taiwan and countries who have diplomatic ties with China.

    "It is hoped that the countries concerned will earnestly abide by the One-China principle, not develop any official relations and conduct any official exchanges with Taiwan, handle Taiwan-related issues prudently and properly, not send any wrong signals to 'Taiwan pro-independence' forces."

    He added that the Chinese Government's opposition to "two Chinas" and "one China, one Taiwan" would not change.

    Australia 'hurt the feelings' of China with calls for coronavirus investigation, senior diplomat says

    One of China's most senior diplomats has refused to say the coronavirus pandemic originated in Wuhan, while accusing the Australian Government of damaging the relationship between the two countries with calls for an independent investigation into the virus.
    Key points:

    China's deputy head of mission said Australian calls for an investigation into COVID-19 "hurt the feelings" of China
    He said while the virus was first recorded in Wuhan, it might not have come from there
    Trade tensions between the countries have soured significantly over the past six months.

    Wang Xining, the deputy head of mission at China's embassy in Australia, gave a rare address at the National Press Club in Canberra, where he said Australia's focus on determining the origins of the virus had damaged international relations.

    "It hurts the feelings of the Chinese people," he said.



    "All of a sudden, they heard this shocking news of a proposal coming from Australia, which is supposed to be a good friend of China."

    Australia was one of the first countries to push for an international investigation into the origins of the virus.

    The World Health Assembly, the governing body of the World Health Organization, eventually adopted a European Union resolution, co-sponsored by both Australia and China, calling for a "comprehensive, independent and impartial" investigation.

    But Mr Wang said China believed Australia's early push was unfair, because it had been advanced on the presumption that Wuhan was the source of the virus.

    "We believe this proposal was targeted against China alone, because during that time Australian ministers claimed that the virus originated from Wuhan, from China, and they did not pinpoint any other places as a possible source," he said.

    "We don't think it was fair."
    Space to play or pause, M to mute, left and right arrows to seek, up and down arrows for volume.
    Wang Xining denies China is economically coercing Australia.

    Asked to clarify, Mr Wang acknowledged the Chinese city was the first place to record a cluster of the virus, but withstood suggestions that meant the virus came from Wuhan.

    "I think it's up to the scientists to find out the origin and also how it's been dealt with by different governments," he said.
    Coronavirus investigation call made Australia a target

    Australia experienced astonishing hostility from our Chinese trading partner after calling for an inquiry into the start of the outbreak — but we're not the only ones feeling their wrath, writes Andrew Probyn.
    Read more

    In April, China's ambassador Cheng Jingye warned that if Australia pressed ahead with calls for an international inquiry into COVID-19, Chinese people might boycott Australian wine and beef.

    Last week China announced an investigation into whether Australia has been unfairly dumping wine in the Chinese market.

    China has already imposed restrictions on Australian barley, and on beef from four major abattoirs, as relations between the two countries have cooled.

    The senior diplomat had the chance to sample such goods on Wednesday, with the National Press Club's menu featuring ingredients targeted in the trade dispute.

    On Tuesday, Treasurer Josh Frydenberg revealed he did not believe the $600 million sale of Lion Dairy and Drinks to China's Mengniu Dairy was in the national interest, after the deal was abandoned.
    Hungry Jack's and Chinese dumplings

    Australian ministers have repeatedly and unsuccessfully tried to contact their Chinese counterparts by phone to discuss the trade issues.

    Mr Wang blamed the radio silence on the pandemic, saying it was difficult to set up face-to-face meetings.

    But Liberal MP Dave Sharma, himself a former diplomat, described Mr Wang's assurances that diplomatic communication had not been cut off as "lacking in authenticity".

    "He said he also seeks an open and constructive relationship with China," Mr Sharma said.

    "Well, the first basis for doing that has always been having open channels of dialogue.

    "Australia's been quite upfront, our ministers and others, that we continue to seek those."
    Space to play or pause, M to mute, left and right arrows to seek, up and down arrows for volume.
    Dave Sharma calls Mr Wang's speech 'just part of the normal interaction' between countries.

    Labor's Foreign Affairs spokeswoman Penny Wong said while Australia's push for an independent investigation into the virus was reasonable, the Government had bungled the announcement of it.

    She said it would not have hurt to give China advance warning of the Government's position.

    "I can't see why that would have been a particularly problematic issue as long as we were clear about what we were doing," Senator Wong said.

    "Making sure you flag these things isn't a bad idea."

    He used his speech to set out his hopes for further cooperation between China and Australia, while insisting each should not interfere with the other's internal affairs.

    "We're not trying to get Hungry Jack's to serve Chinese dumplings," he said.
