So the German embassy in China thought they were clever.

They posted on Weibo, a person holding a blank piece of paper.

Obviously in support of the protests that happened in China

But the Chinese on Weibo is having a field day, photoshopping jokes on them...examples in the🧵 Image This one says:

"German soap is very good, but too bad, you only have cold water to shower"

This is a double entendre

Because Germans during WW2 used the fat from murdered Jewish victims and turned them into bars of soap Image

Breaking news from China‼

Former General Secretary of the CPC, former President Jiang Zemin, passed away today, at the age of 96 Image I chose the picture of him giving a very inspiring speech during the deadly 1998 floods for his eulogy.

Many may disagree with his policies, but his deft and skilled diplomacy, steered China out of isolation after the Tiananmen square insurrection attempt

A protester in China taken away by the Police while shouting:

"Hold on, let me speak ok?
I haven't returned my shared bike !!"

Not returning a shared bike to their docks, carries a 50 RMB fine

This tell us a lot about the protest itself...🧵 First of all there are 2 types of protests

One is the legitimate dissatisfaction with local covid policy, they are the ones tearing down barricades.

The other, such as this video, are politicized protests, where they hold up blank piece of paper

The protests in China seems to be fizzling out faster than a wet firecracker

This protest in Guangzhou, you see 5 protesters being scolded by locals, as the police and onlookers enjoy the show

Here's what they said...🧵 Some key sentences translated by Weibo users:

Local dude: "Are you even from Guangzhou"?

"You are not here to help us, you are here to create trouble"

"We Cantonese are very generous, if you need money we can give you some" (implying they are paid by foreign forces to protest)

An overview of the protests happening in China 🧵

This video sums it up pretty well:
It happened in Chengdu, Sichuan
A small group of people were chanting:

"We want freedom" in Mandarin

Then the bystanders shouted in Sichuan dialect:
"fk your freedom" Vast majority of the people protesting simply wants the covid policy to change

However, there is a small minority of people that are using this as a stepping stone for regime change

These people are working directly with foreign journalists, so their voices are overrepresented

Protest organized by someone in Shanghai, chanting "Down with the party, down with Xi Jinping"

There's a line for decency in civil disobedience, and when you cross it, you lose popular support

In China, that line is the Party Frustrations at the government is temporary and understandable, but this crosses the line by making it purely political

The Party must act quickly. The people, not paid agent provocateurs need a light at the end of the tunnel

Here's my take on the tragic fire in Urumqi Xinjiang, China
How did it happened, why did happen...🧵

Before this fire, the general trajectory of the COVID policy, was to gradually reopen, in a stepped process

But this fire could be the catalyst that accelerate the process Image First of all, it doesn't even matter if 0 COVID policy were the direct cause or not, I've been on Weibo for hours

Pretty much every post is blaming 0 COVID policy
Specifically, the Urumqi city government's version

The people is using this as a window to vent their displeasure

Many of you by now, may have heard of the protest at the Foxconn factory in Zhengzhou China

Here's a thread discussing the cause and deeper implications of the protest

No whitewashing, no sensationalism just pure hard facts...🧵 Image Let's set the record straight, the protest is not about pandemic control policies, though it's one of the contributing factors

The main problem here, is Foxconn is accused of changing their temporary employment contracts, and not honoring their advertised pay

Every 4 years during the FIFA world cup

Any and every Chinese that is even remotely a football fan, would let out a collective sigh and wonder how the Chinese Men's football team can be fixed Many blame the Chinese Football Association, others blames the coaching, some blame it on that illusive fighting spirit

But the plain answer is, not enough young people are interested in football, vast majority of the parents won't let their child pursue it professionally either

This is the first time I've seen President Xi getting annoyed in public

Justin Trudeau must be sweating in places where he didn't even know he had sweat glands Here's what Xi said

"Everything we've talked about have been leaked to the papers, that's not appropriate"

"And that's not how the way the conversation was conducted" (alluding to the inaccuracies of the leak)

🧵On what happened in Poland and could this be WWIII

The missile that hit Poland could be a S-300
If so, then it's a certainty that it's an Ukrainian missile that went astray

The damage, or the lack thereof, especially to the tractor, suggests it's a missile malfunction If it is a missile malfunction, then large parts of the missile should be intact

Then investigators would immediately know if it was an Russian missile that fired at Lvov

Because only Russia uses missiles like Kalibr or Kinzhal to attack ground targets in this war

This year’s Zhuhai airshow is significant not only for the dazzling array of weapons displayed

But more importantly, it’s about the shift in geopolitics it may bring forth

So, why is it important?
🧵 Russian weapon supply chain has been hindered due to sanctions.

China now has the opportunity to expand its export market

Weapons export is a very important aspect of geopolitics, because selling weapon systems to a nation, means you can influence it geopolitically

The most significant ones are related to high risk zoning rules

Theocratic USA, an impromptu thread dissecting America...🧵

The polarization begun years ago, and it won't stop until the US hegemony collapses

This is the end of history for the American experiment, upstarts dreaming about their emerald city upon a hill "Free speech" and unfiltered social media platforms, were tools for regime change

But now, the pointy end is pointed towards yourselves, some liberals touted the absence of a "red wave" for the mid term elections

Signaled Trumpism's demise Image
