Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, January 12, 2019

This is a 14-minute video that explains how two groups are in America are trying to influence how U.S. citizens think of China. Advertisements for both of these groups programs (one government sponsored and the other more a religious faction) are common and appear to be simply Chinese cultural programs. According to this video, both have an agenda.

"Video: How Americans Are Fooled into Hating China"

Headline fail. It's like if someone made a nuanced video about the extreme factions who either condem or praise/defend everything single thing the US does and titled it "How People Are Fooled Into Hating America"

People need to open their eyes and realize they're constantly being being bombarded with propaganda, about countries, parties, products and ideas. When people study and live abroad for an extended period, it often changes their perceptions of the world in general, including their own culture. This is true of Chinese as well as Americans or people from anywhere. Of course, some people choose to keep their eyes shut the whole time, while others latch on to the first thing that agrees with their preconceived notions, whether it's for or against.

The Confucious Institute is a front group for the Chinese Communist Party. Some universities are finally shutting them down.

Not that I disagree but the source looks like some rando's channel.

DULLI... This is the age of internet stars and this guy (he's from South Africa) is a bit of a superstar. He (and his American buddy) are married to Chinese women and live in China. So when they talk about China, they usually know what they are talking about.

I've got a bet going with people from a Pakistani forum when he and his American buddy will be found dead in an "accident" in the middle of one of their road trips. They nearly died once after having 3 bottles of fake Chinese beer...LOL

Either way I find them very informative. You get more info in 15 minutes than you would get reading 3 hours of bore-crap.

Sez someone who is incapable of posting a threat of her own to someone whose posts regularly make it to the Front Page.

I wish I could give a party to this person.

All the time I'm gone, she's gone. When I'm back SHE is BACK. (anyone noticed MADAM while I was gone? No? LOL)

Hmmmmmmm.... some sick stalker dynamic going on here.....

You're right, of course, but laughter is spontaneous.

I am laughing right now. Why does he call you NUDIST and a MADAM??????

Ask her a few more times. You'll find her avoiding the question even though a few years ago this sick person boasted about her job running a nudist colony. LOL

"People need to open their eyes and realize they're constantly being being bombarded with propaganda, about countries, parties, products and ideas."

That would mean people have to be objective and accept that their opinions aren't the only ones and they may not be right, or that a situation doesn't have a clear right or wrong answer. We have ample proof every day that Americans as a whole are not able to do that.

No individual could be sane without some confidence that they are correct and right.

No culture that is going to survive will be able to do that, Or else the culture would be consumed by other cultures.

Its how evolution works ...

You got to give JTosser some credit, however, since he is still working his Sekakai sock puppet. My guess is that he will tire of logging in and out and that we won't be seeing as much of either Sekakai or Tony Tripoli now.

Which is why it's funny when people say dumb stuff like "facts have a liberal bias."
Everyone thinks facts confirm their world view. No one says that the facts are against them but they believe the opposite, unless perhaps they are schizophrenics.
