China Bias

The Chinese – Dirty, Rotten Scoundrel

My take on the Fiji Island situation

So on May 19th 2019, 60 Minutes Australia released a YouTube segment Fight to protect Fiji reef from Chinese developer relating to the recent Fiji Island spat between 2 Australian guys, Narvin Fox and Woody Jack. They are both fair dinkum Aussie blokes, people who you will see strolling in Woolies buying a coupla Fosters on a late night shopping evening. Perfectly normal guys with an Island Resort dream married to an unapologetic surfing passion and what better way to combine these 2 loves, than to get a little block of land on Fiji Island…….Then they met Goliath. A big nasty brute with a mammoth size bank account, bad attitude and a Herculean ego to challenge these 2 innocent surfies from NSW…….oh did I mention, Goliath is Chinese?

So, this is where I stand. To date, there haven’t been any successful interviews with Free soul (regarding this incident), the Chinese company that is set to build a $100 million Casino in Fiji, so I don’t have a lot to go off on except mainly from the 60 Minute interview with Narvin and Woody (NW).

I do not think NW are lying. I do think that there could be a possibility of a misunderstanding but at this point I am not arguing for one. Like I said before, there’s no rebuttal from the Chinese ‘Goliath’ so I will work on the assumption that the 2 friends bought the land first, then Free soul came and bought out a bigger land parcel which bordered NW’s property.

This is what I have gathered from another source, FIJI SUN, regarding this story.

Free soul did issue a statement -‘Upon the invitation of Prime Minister Bainimarama to business houses including Free soul on one of his visits to China, he told investors , “Come. Come and invest in Fiji”‘.

NW bought their land in 2015, Free soul officially registered in Fiji on 20 February 2017 after receiving the approval of Investment Fiji. The following 3 activities were approved:

  1. Integrated Tourism Development
  2. Real Estate Development
  3. Real Estate Management.

The local iTaukei and qoliqoli received FJ$1m in advance for development assistance. Free soul spent an additional FJ$11m in readying the construction project, the benefactors included Malolo, Gau and Taveuni (local groups) . It is estimated that this project will provide jobs for around 1000 people when construction begins. This article concludes with Free soul thanking the iTaukei Land Trust Board (TLTB), the Executive Management and Tourism department in Nadi for their unequivocal support.

So what is my issue? This…….

I am a nerd, so when watch a YouTube video, especially anything non fiction, I will read the description box. 60 Minutes gave a brief outline of the story but ended it like this: “…..far from being wiped out, the Aussie surfers refused to let the dirty rotten scoundrels get away with it”.

WHY, when it comes to any negative report on China or the Chinese, must the actions be laced with a negative moral/ethical slant (PUN!)??? Why not report the actual events and not season everything with the punitive, western moral compass? OR, if you insist on garnishing everything with a moral angle why not do it for everyone equally? Why only the Chinese?

Now, there are those who will say, ” Well the Chinese did behave like scoundrels” but is it only a Chinese characteristic? Who, when committing any egregious act is NOT ACTING like a scoundrel? If it’s a universal trait when people act unconscionably WHY CONFINE IT TO THE CHINESE??? Isn’t that blatant sinophobism?

I then proceeded to look up past 60 Minute YouTube videos to see if they used such vitriol in other cases which did not involve Chinese people, and lo ‘n’ behold, even paedophiles are given greater clemency.

Defining SCOUNDREL: “a person, especially a man, who treats other people very badly and has no moral principles”. Cambridge Dictionary

Impact on Boeing reputation after 737 Max scandal“, released May 7th 2019. We should all be familiar with this gem now where Boeing deemed safety as an ‘option’ rather than a standard feature…..YA THINK?????? Total deaths resulting from this, 346 people. That’s somebody’s son, daughter, mother, father, aunt, uncle….need I go on? In the description box of this video, were there any incriminating terms relating to morality of the Boeing staff? None. The description was just recanting the HIGHLY FORESEEABLE ACCIDENT. On a side note, Trump had no recourse but to ground the planes after much consternation, he did not willingly do so. Profits over life, is that not the choice of a scoundrel? Imagine if Boeing was a Chinese company and Xi made the same belated decision………I can imagine the headlines and it will involve the words human rights, scoundrel and for kicks, neo colonialism.

Inside the depraved world of David and Louise Turpin, released April 22nd 2019. This is the infamous domestic child abuse drama, involving 13 children who were tortured, confined and starved. You would think such diabolical proclivities towards ones own progeny would earn the title SCOUNDREL but did it? Nope. 60 Minutes once again just outlined the events with no moral condemnation of the perpetrators.

Inside the twisted mind of a firebug, released April 19th 2019. A ”professional arsonist”, that’s right, Australia’s own little fire starter! You would think taking countless lives, destroying natural flora and fauna INTENTIONALLY surely would earn you, even fleetingly, the moniker of scoundrel!!??!! Apparently even that won’t do it, if you are not Chinese.

Exposing secretive cult-like Truth Church”, released April 21st 2019. The Truth Church scandal that shocked the nation. Known paedophiles were welcomed into the church where sexual abuse of minors were perpetrated and kept clandestine.Surely, wilful, premeditated child sexual abuse warrants the label SCOUNDREL???? Nope. Not if you are not CHINESE!!! Once again in the description box you will find a rudimentary explanation of the story with no rhetoric about anyone’s moral value.

This is my biggest gripe with our world currently. It is completely devoid of logic even by the so called well educated public ‘intellectuals’ who proffer their expertise on everything that occupies any bandwidth in our mind. The ridiculous reasons they give to justify their prejudice against a certain demographic is bewildering. They may dress it up with a suit, nice haircut and a benign grin that says ” Trust me I am very smart. I read a lot of books……psst how I chose those books was from my biased point of view. I won’t read anything that runs contra to my personal narrative” but make no mistake, they are not willing to see things from any other angle than from a point of their own prejudice.

Even though I have pointed out and provided evidence of the double standards of the portrayal of Chinese people, there will still be those who will read this and just opine, she’s just paranoid. Others will lament and say, what’s the big deal?

The big deal is your immediate reality. It’s an Australia that profited from China’s spending spree that allowed it to buffer against the Lehman snowstorm without so much as a sniffle but is now sodomising China along with the world’s biggest bully, the US.

It’s a Japan who was at the brunt of these American unilateral belligerent threats in the 80’s who now turn around and chastise China and would do anything to see it fall, rather than deliberate an experienced truth. Japan wasn’t unscrupulous then, anymore than China is unscrupulous now.

Every country must see that it succeeds. Terms of any agreement are to be discussed with a mutual agreement reached, not unilateral decisions made by one side holding an entire deck of cards and demanding that the other side try to play and win on that condition. Serfdom is dead just in case anyone was wondering……..No one should have to bow down to anyone else!

  1. I endorse Your view point. We Buddhists believe in the principle of impermanence. Trump is not permanent as a president and as a man. Today you are the bully and tomorrow you will be the victim of the bully. This is what we say the law of karma. You do good things your karmic consequences will be good. Against this backdrop, I wish if we only work together through deepening the understanding of each other for the wellbeing of the entire world. The western countries and those ally with them should overcome their wrongly placed phobia against any country including China.

    1. Thank you very much for your kind words. I hope that we can all share our ideas and experiences equally. We should never put ourselves or others on a hierarchy just so that we can demonise them. Have a lovely day.

    2. fully agree. I think it is time Australia stop “licking” American A…
      I have spent much time in China and I know how bias Australian news is with regards to China. China sure has issues, so has Australia and any other country.

      1. Lol, exactly. China is far, far from perfect but name one country that is? Like I say, I am not pro China or Russia etc, I’m pro fairness or anti bullying.
        A country that has lifted 700,000 people out of poverty in 40 years must at least be doing a few things right. They can’t just be “dirty rotten scoundrels” to achieve what they have.
        And the butt licking really needs to stop, Australia is killing itself!

  2. Followed you here from Quora. Glad to know that there are people like yourself woke to the unhinged Western propaganda that unfortunately also infects readers in tiny Singapore where I was born and raised – currently reside in Australia. Having read your other article about the Gyoza incident, I am sorry to learn that the Japanese people have not been not spared either. The scary part is how, when it comes to China bashing, the Western academics and so-called intelligentsia are in total agreement with their governments and media – spreading lies, innuendoes and demonising all things China and Chinese. Unfortunately this is not just a simple case of biased journalism, but I believe war-time levels of propaganda that portend something more sinister from the upper reaches of Western leadership.

    1. Yeah! And thank you for following me on Quora.
      I am in absolute agreement with you, the rhetoric now is tantamount to war time propaganda. I have remained silent for too long because as someone who has an Asian / Western upbringing, I was always taught to be “understanding”, however this is never reciprocated.
      Put it this way, America destroyed Japan and now its hellbent on destroying China.
      It is up to every individual to educate themselves not only on the demonisation of China but also acknowledge the bias hurled onto Russia, Iran etc.
      When I read the JCPOA I was shocked. Do you know part of the agreement was that even if Iran complied fully to the agreement, it would only be able to access 58bil of its own 115b that America has locked up in an escrow account.
      The American empire is just a bully and I’m appalled that Japan and Australia, both my homes, are part of the bullying gang.
      It sickens me as an Australian to know that my country will let Julian Assange, it’s only son to have changed our world, potentially live his final days in solitary confinement in the USA. I feel sick and betrayed that my government, in order to curry favour from the US will forsake its own child.

      1. You wrote a great article, I wish I am half as articulate as you are. As a Chinese Australian I am sickened and disgusted by our Australian Government abandonment of Julian Assange to the US wolves (bullies). The sooner the rest of the world stand up to the bullying of the US the better. They have literally “pissed off” most of their friends and allies.

        1. Thank you Francis for the appreciation! The OZ government is despicable!! I have no respect for people whose moral compass vacillates on the drop of power. Truly sickening! Drop by anytime to say Hi!

      2. The US bully and Australia, self appointed Deputy Sheriff shout at the top of their towers and with the top of their voices all they want about governance transparency, freedom of thought and speech and their much touted “International Rules Based Order” but when it comes to the crunch, they do the very opposite of what they declared.

        Julian Assange is being martyred for his self-less care for a truly free world for the benefit of all its citizens and he will go down in history as one of the biggest Hero for Truth and Integrity of the Twentieth and Twenty-first Centuries.

        The lies and fabrications of the World Bullies and Hegemon will in time come back to bite them in the A**,

        People may not realize that yesterday, it was Japan that was totally subjected to US oppression and greed, then it was Russia and now the pressure is on China and Iran to be destroyed.

        Tomorrow? India, Brazil, Indonesia, Vietnam, Singapore etc. etc?

        As the saying goes, when I had the chance to say no, I did not because I thought I will never be affected but now that I am, there is no-one left to speak up on my behalf.

        ALL IT TAKES FOR EVIL TO TRIUMPH IS FOR GOOD PEOPLE TO SAY AND DO NOTHING.

        LONG LIVE JULIAN ASSANGE!

  3. Happy to follow you, and love reading your articles that speak truth to power. I agree that Asians are generally taught to respect authority and mind one’s business as means to steer clear of harm’s way, but in times like these, we ought to speak up or risk being forever sidelined – and silenced by – bullies. I didn’t realise how lopsided the JCPOA was (thanks for sharing!), but unfortunately even though they tore up the so-called treaty, the situation for the Iranian people is more dire than ever. The Western countries are imposing their neo-colonialism ways via sanctions, assets freezing and plain stealing. On top of all this, they are threatening Iran with war for developing nukes – or at least, she has been accused without any proof – when her adversarial and militarily superior neighbour, Israel, has hundreds, if not thousands, of undisclosed nukes. This outright, bold-faced hypocrisy of the Western gang is gut wrenching. I truly appreciate your clear-minded assessment of what’s going on, even though as you put it, both your homelands are part of the NATO gang. Why is there even a need for NATO after collapse of Soviet Union?? Sigh! To justify the need for NATO’s continuance, enter bogeymen China and Russia! And don’t even get me started on Julian Assange, a hero for everyday people. All the Wikileaks calling out Western spying (5 Eyes) and rogue behaviour (NATO soldiers’ murder of innocent Iraqi/Afghan civilians) have received abysmally infinitesimal coverage. As you pointed out in your articles, the Western press prefers to focus on – and grossly exaggerate – those negative reports tat involve Chinese people, eg. the alleged spying of Huawei… I can go on 🙂 Alas, this message was intended to congratulate you for your courage and objectivity to tell it like it is. Please keep me in the loop when you write more articles. They are truly illuminating in how you challenge the status quo and speak up for the victims of global bullying. As a Singaporean Chinese, I count myself as one of the bullied, and so extend a personal “thank you” from the bottom of my heart! Keep fighting for the weak and defenceless!

    1. Thank you for your support! I will post an article every week. Please visit here when you remember. Confession, I am not entirely with this blog thing yet. I ran a YouTube channel before and could get subs so they get notified. Don’t know how to get “subs” here, only a mail list. Anyway, I’m still leaning and looking forward to hearing from you again 🙂

  4. Yep. My wake-up call was William Blum’s ‘Killing Hope’.

    I was a three time preliminary judge of Tokyo University’s All Japan English Speech Contest, and was aghast at the low quality of the student-organized event. Some of the speeches were very good, but the contest is little more than a fashion show with little to no acknowledgement of pursuing English building or social problem solving ideals.

    I am now reading https://www.amazon.co.jp/Mirror-Modernity-Traditions-Twentieth-Emergence/dp/0520206371 and it appears that whereas the corporate owned public media in the Anglo world is guilty of ‘Manufacturing Consent’ (Hermann and Chomsky), the Japanese ruling class way is to ‘invent traditions’ … and how is that not an oxymoron?

    But your insight into culturally embedded racism is spot-on. Here is a great TED talk from a Native American regarding the foundations of Anglo-centric law in America. I suspect he closely reflects aboriginal views in Australia as well … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOktqY5wY4A&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR0zpzo7iJs21xfB5FLjDjb38Vx4A-2qKuUWHRkXWz6RcOYRvymWv49TfbU

    1. If you had the pleasure to view the quality of the English teaching industry in Japan, you would aghast.
      The fault lies on both parties, that of the teacher and the student.
      I only have 3 trillion issues with the industry that I tried to convey to my company only to have all my suggestions quelched.
      This is not by the Japanese btw, but by fellow Australians. Surprisingly, under the Japanese, there were less restrictions. Now 4 expats rule the realm of my ex job and they are have instigated a new procedure that requires we get approval for every question we want to ask students. Hence I quit.
      The racism is prolific, towards everyone and everything, all veiled until you isolate the groups. That’s when it all comes out.
      Thank you for your links, I will look into them:)

  5. My moslem friends once told me that when we created lies about someone, the person whom we lied about were having parts of his sins forgiven by God. Those sins would be paid for by the very person who created lies about him. Maybe that is why China continues to grow. Because too many people badmouth China. So, China’s sins are forgiven while the people who create those lies have to bear the sin.

    1. Wow, that was surprisingly profound. I would like to use this in the future. Thank you for this perspective. Have a great day.

  6. What you have to understand is the psyche of the white male.

    In every society, there are a subsection of men who value their group identity more than their individual one. A Scottish person who feels more pride in the moniker of “Scot” than he does in his individual endeavors. Such men can be called ‘racist’, ‘amygdalic’, ‘conservative’, ‘know-nothing’, or any number of names that essentially boil down to the same type of thinking.

    My view is that europe had more of these people–that’s why it never unified and always remained fractured nation-states. If you have a bunch of dumb “Prussian supremacists” willing to die for you, then why not use them against the neighboring military? And also, I believe that these types disproportionately emigrated to the US. After all, it makes sense that the high-risk emotional ones would do so.

    Such men are good for very little, except for cannon fodder. These were the males who cleared the American Natives out, who wanted rape sprees in Vietnam, and who shoot up their high schools in the modern day.

    I also don’t think that this type of person is unique to europe. I think there are plenty of them all over India and the Mideast. The only difference is that europe got rich.

    This trait lies on a continuous spectrum, and is higher in western populations than in the east. In the past, it meant hating germans or the gauls, or whatever happened to be your version of ‘foreigners’, but in the present, all those differences take a backseat to white vs. not white.

    They hate China because it is the sole power on earth that represents a threat to white supremacy. They hate India too, but a lot less because of its lower capabilities.

    1. I absolutely agree with you. If you have the chance, read my woke stories. I thought that once they became the minority, some reflection would ensue.
      I was wrong. The power within never allows for the acceptance that people are different to the West. Most coloured people really are OK to be second class because it’s inevitable when you are a minority. Western minded people insist on being the first irrespective of where they are.

    2. I totally agree with you.
      It is now clearly whites vs. non-whites but the whites, along with the brainwashed non-whites, especially and deliberately target the Chinese because of China’s rising. And currently HK is one hotbed on which they use the old divide and rule tactic. It pisses me off so much to see all the exaggerated lies about the HK police violence and very little about the rioters’ violence!

      And how come not much coverage about the Palestinians or Yemenis who are bombed and murdered daily?!! The yellow vest?!!

      It is really maddening to see the whites hypocrisy, double standard, hate propaganda!!

      (Sorry for venting a bit here).

      1. This change of power is difficult for most white people to take indeed. Imagine balancing the books and actually having to be accountable for the mayhem you cause….

  7. The US bully and Australia, self appointed Deputy Sheriff shout at the top of their towers and with the top of their voices all they want about governance transparency, freedom of thought and speech and their much touted “International Rules Based Order” but when it comes to the crunch, they do the very opposite of what they declared.

    Julian Assange is being martyred for his self-less care for a truly free world for the benefit of all its citizens and he will go down in history as one of the biggest Hero for Truth and Integrity of the Twentieth and Twenty-first Centuries.

    The lies and fabrications of the World Bullies and Hegemon will in time come back to bite them in the A**,

    Tomorrow? India, Brazil, Indonesia, Vietnam, Singapore etc. etc?

    LONG LIVE JULIAN ASSANGE!

  8. The US together with its lackeys collectively called themselves the “Five Eyes” but others likened them to be the “Five Sluts” arrogantly elected themselves as the watch dogs and consciences of the world.

    It is not so bad if this bunch of bullies, liars and spreaders of ill will and information do not try to deceive the world of their try intents.

    Just because Huawei, the most progressive and democractic organisation in the world refuse to let those hussies to freely spy on the world with its equipment, it is accused of the very sin that those unscrupulous sluts practices.

    Little do those liars and twister of the truth realize that the more lies they are spreading, the more people will know their ulterior motives and contrary to their wishes, continued even more unabated support of Huawei.

    Mr Pompeo one of the antagonist and chief spreader of lies against Huawei and China has admitted he lied, cheated and stole when he was Chief scoundrel in the CIA.
