Ok, I am having a hard time understanding what this CNN commentator said. The (American) Chinese press is reporting that he basically called all Chinese thugs. No, according to this article, he only call the People’s Republic of China’s leaders thugs and he called Chinese products “junk”.
Chinese leaders are “thugs”. A generalization but one that is true. Personally although I think they became power-hungry and did some stupid things, I believe that many in the post-revolution leadership had the intention of helping the people. Some of the shit that went down was horrendous and stupid but I believe that there was at least some idealism. This current crop of Chinese leaders is nothing but a group of mafia thugs. They use their positions to line their coffers with money FULL STOP. Nowadays, in China you have a mixture of the worst features of laissez-faire capitalism mixed with a political group you can’t get rid of using democratic means.
Chinese producsts are “junk”. Another generalization but there is a lot of truth to it.
Right or wrong, I don’t see this guys remarks as being racist…unless there is something else that he said of which I am not aware.
