Sharon Stone’s Cold Blooded Comments on Sichuan Earthquake

She is such a b*tch. You know, then, when you think about what kind of friends Dalai Lama has…

知道她是达赖的好便宜,但是,是好朋友也不代表道德可以败坏到这种程度,个人素质可以低到如此让人发指。She said she was going to cry? WOW. Honestly, when I heard what she said, I felt like I was going to cry. I was simply too sad to see celebrities so morally degraded and deranged.

Update:
It was reported that Dior claimed that Stone’s comments has nothing to do with the company. Also western mainstream media basically kept silent on this. And you know why.

And of course, her transcript, when asked whether she has heard about the earthquake in China.

Of course I have. Well you know at first I thought I’m not happy with the way the Chinese are treating the Tibetans … and I’ve been concerned with should we have the Olympics because they’re not being nice to the Dalai Lama who’s a good friend of mine.

And then all this earthquake and stuff happened and I thought, ‘Is that Karma, when you’re not nice and the bad things happen to you?’

Update 2:
After a couple of days of lag, western mainstream media finally reported this, probably due to the high exposure of this matter among Chinese people.

US Media Think 30-people Neo-Nazi Rally More Important Than 500-people Chinese Rally in Washington DC

Yesterday, over 500 hundred Chinese people, citizen of China and also United States, held a rally at the Capital Hill in Washington DC. The spot assigned to them was Upper Senate Park, a place very few people would walk pass by. It was a peaceful 4-hour long rally. No major US media reported this rally, as expected, because no reporters from any mainstream US media were there. Organizers said they notified many western mainstream media about this event, including CBS, Fox, ABC, Reuters, Associated Press, BBC, The Washington Post and The Washington Diplomat.

At the same time, about 30 people from National Socialist Movement, a self-claimed Neo-Nazi group, was able to march at important places in DC, including the National Mall. They denounced illegal immigration, and said white Americans don’t want those illegal immigrants here in the US.

US Media Labeling Chinese protesters pro-Chinese government

After China and Chinese Americans and Chinese legal immigrants and students in the US demanded apology from CNN and Jack Cafferty for his comments. Yesterday many Chinese Americans and Chinese people protested in Los Angles. However, the US media tried to label those Chinese people as pro-Chinese government, because Jack Cafferty called “Chinese government goons and thugs”.

However, only in CNN’s statement they interpret Jack Cafferty’s comments that way. In his original transcript, he did not mention “Chinese government” but only “Chinese” and “they”. Even if that is really what he meant, many US media failed to inform readers that maybe Chinese people misinterpreted his comments. US media intentionally doctrine their viewers that these Chinese people are protesting because “their Chinese government” was criticized. For example:

AP reported:

Protesters are also lashing out at the CNN TV network over its commentator Jack Cafferty, who caused outrage last week when he called the Beijing leadership “goons and thugs” and slammed the quality of Chinese exports.

San Francisco Chronicles:

Chinese Americans rallied outside CNN’s Hollywood office on Saturday to demand the firing of commentator Jack Cafferty for calling China’s goods “junk” and its leaders a “bunch of goons and thugs.”

Abstract for this news:

Chinese Americans protest commentator who called China’s goods “junk” and its leaders a “bunch of goons and thugs.”

AFP reported:

Protesters are also lashing out at the CNN TV network over its commentator Jack Cafferty, who caused outrage last week when he called the Beijing leadership “goons and thugs” and slammed the quality of Chinese exports.

More neutral reports such as on Los Angles Times, did not use “Chinese government” but “China” as the subject of “goons and thugs”.

What Jack Cafferty actually said:

I don’t know if China is any different, but our relationship with China is certainly different. We’re in hock to the Chinese up to our eyeballs because of the war in Iraq, for one thing. They’re holding hundreds of billions of dollars worth of our paper. We are also running hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of trade deficits with them, as we continue to import their junk with the lead paint on them and the poisoned pet food and export, you know, jobs to places where you can pay workers a dollar a month to turn out the stuff that we’re buying from Wal-Mart.

So I think our relationship with China has certainly changed. I think they’re basically the same bunch of goons and thugs they’ve been for the last 50 years.

From this transcript and using my naive English, I think it is absolutely not clear he was talking about “Chinese government”. Maybe he did not mean “Chinese people” but at least he meant “China”. Even if he meant “Chinese government”, there are at least two major problems:

1) Chinese government don’t produce these lead toy and poisoned pet food. Those products are not Chinese government’s property, but Jack said “their junk with lead paint… poisoned pet food”.

2) He said “places where you can pay workers a dollar a month”. This place is not China because China is not THAT cheap. And he totally missed the target. The real target is the capital in the US want to make more money by outsourcing these manufacturing jobs. The main problem is exactly within US; not in China, not the Chinese people, and not the Chinese government.

So apparently CNN and Jack Nasty is trying to excuse themselves for saying something inappropriate and insulting and even racist. And some US media are trying to “help” and infuriate other Americans by labeling those protesting Chinese Americans as supporting “Chinese government”. This is pathetic.

By the way, quality of many Chinese products are probably not top quality, but they are worth the import price. Wal-mart and such made a fortune buying those Chinese products at unbeatable prices and sell many times more the import price. Also, China is a developing industrial country. If China can produce everything the quality US would, it probably wouldn’t be US who is bullying China now, right? And from my experience with some Made in USA products, I don’t think they worth their prices. Sometimes the quality is also… unsatisfactory.

拿政治绿卡的要搞倒杜克中国学生会

Duke校报一直是站在中国人的反面。因为王千源自称因为自己隐私信息被曝光,上了中国政府黑名单,如果她要为自己的安全考虑,她将无法再回中国,如果她回国,可能会被终生监禁。

看样子绿卡是拿到了,恐怕帮父母把绿卡也拿到了。中国学生会还被Duke各大学生会谴责,并且被要求接触学生组织的地位。以下是来自Duke校报The Chronicle。

“I think this is one of the turning points of Chinese history, and I want to be part of it,” she said, emphasizing that she does not support Tibetan independence.

The student said there have also been consequences for her actions in China.

“I know that I am on the Chinese government blacklist because of this,” she said, explaining that she had been informed of this by sources she declined to name. “It just means I can never go back to China if I care about my security. If I go back I might end up in jail forever.”
