I am concerned about Tibet in the past few days.
All the photos, videos from either news agencies or independent individuals are showing a small group of violent Tibetan people destroying shops and cars, burning down cars and buildings, hitting and even killing innocent people (who are not Tibetan). However, western media have chosen to say that Chinese government is doing “bloody crackdown” on the riot.
I should not have been surprised. Because westerners have always been lied about China. The continued efforts to demonize China has been there for many many years. I should not have been surprised.
But one simple question, is that are those westerners who watch these media, such as CNN, Yahoo, BBC, unable to “think” at all? None of those videos or pictures are showing the so called “bloody crackdown” but violent Tibetan people. I believe, this, and this only, is an evidence that’s strong enough to overthrow all the previous reports on Tibet: totally biased and lies.
Also, from these videos and pictures, it is clear that those violent Tibetans are attackers. If, like those media and Dalai Lama said, over 100 of those attackers have died, what would you expect have died as defenders? When Chinese government said 10 people have died, they meant “innocent people”. But when western media report this, they made it sounds like 10 Tibetan people were killed by Chinese police.
Also when CNN was interviewing Richard Gere, an actor who basically don’t know much about truth or the world, they were broadcasting the conflicts between Indian or Nepal police and protesting Tibetans. OK, maybe Americans are really THAT easy to fool. Because CNN was not talking about India or Nepal in that video (I watched personally), it is apparent that they wanted to fool people into thinking Chinese police are treating these Tibetans so badly.
The bottom line is, wherever there are riots, be it in USA, UK or Germany, police will act. USA authorized army to enter New Orleans and shoot mobs. UK used force against northern Ireland. When innocent Chinese people are being killed, their properties been destroyed, we did not hear a single condemn to these terrorists in Lhasa on those “extremely unbiased” media who only tell truth. Well, maybe condemn is too much to ask, how about a little sympathy for those innocent people? But still, none, nothing, not at all. On the other hand, they are accusing Chinese government being bloody and brutal.
I would say Chinese government is brutal if they don’t stop these terrorists, and be responsible for their citizens lives. Luckily we have police just like western world.
To summarize, there is basically no point of arguing about this issue with westerners who had been brainwashed by their media. Remember how Americans were brainwashed into Iraq wars? They tried to brainwash them into Iran war, however some special interest group in Washington DC apparently aborted. Chinese media brainwash people too. Most Chinese people know that. And Chinese like me makes my own judgement. Most Americans don’t believe their media try to brainwash them. They vote Obama because of Oprah.
Why is that? Let me connect the dots. Why would western media portrait China and some other countries much worse than they really are? Because this brings in contrast. In this way, westerners would start to feel happy about what they got, even though it is not really much better. It is very effective because now it feels like they live in a much better world than they really do. I have seen numerous comments about China by Americans: I am so glad I don’t live in China. USA is on average a better place to live than China, no-brainer. However, now, there are a very significant number of Chinese who lead better life than a significant number of low class Americans, believe it or not. I have a friend in China earning $15,000 a year, another one $10,000 a year. There are many people like them, and people better than them. And China is a much cheaper place to live (although getting more expensive), apparently relatively they are much richer than lower class Americans. What’s more important is, China is still developing fast. US now enters recession. Think about 20 years later?
But it is important for US and western world to ensure their citizens to feel much more superior than people from China and countries like that. Think about how many Americans believe their health care is better than Canadian? And no, American people are not fooled by their media. No, not at all. And, they become so fat and unhealthy with a french fried loving heart, all because that’s what they truly wanted. I probably went too far from the topic of Tibet, but anyway it was fun to talk about truth.
