The Chinese know our leaders well. In fact, they have a name for our self-hating professional class.
They call them “baizuo.” The rough translation from Mandarin is “White liberal,” and it is definitely not a compliment.
Chinese state media describes baizou as people who, “only care about topics such as immigration, minorities, LGBT and the environment, who have no sense of real problems in the real world, who only advocate for peace and equality to satisfy their own feelings of moral superiority, and who are so obsessed with political correctness that they tolerate backward Islamic values for the sake of multiculturalism.”
As Chinese state media notes, “former US President Obama was considered an advocate of baizuo ideology.” So is “German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her decision to welcome more than one million third-world immigrants to Europe.”
Other observations about baizuo, as reported by Chinese state media, include the fact that they “advocate inclusiveness and anti-discrimination but cannot tolerate different opinions.” Baizuo’s political opinions are “so shallow that they tend to maintain social equality by embracing ideologies that run against the basic concept of equality.”
According to one scholar from Peking University, “baizuo are phony and hypocritical and will make the situation in the West go from bad to worse.” And so on.
Talk about insight, they know our leaders well.
According to Wikipedia, many Chinese internet users use the term “baizuo” to “criticize the Democratic Party’s emphasis on affirmative action policies [which are] perceived as discriminating against Asians.
Whatever you think of the Chinese, they’re definitely not stupid, and they’re on to something there. Affirmative action hurts Asians. That’s true and everyone knows it.
Easy enough to see for anyone with eyes. It’s as if they read the Wentworth Report.
