China’s bloggers ridicule congress delegates’ sycophantic speeches

Tianjin Delegates

Self-important party delegates attending the national congress have become the target of ridicule online on the mainland blogosphere.

Some delegates, while discussing a report delivered by party chief Hu Jintao when the congress began on Thursday, were criticised for sycophantic speeches that served to attract attention to themselves, without offering any insight into the country’s development.

Beijing delegate Ju Xiaolin, in remarks praising Hu, said he wrote a poem, entitled “Getting New Hope”, expressing the views of ordinary workers such as himself. He started reading, but quickly became choked up at the beginning and needed a few seconds to collect himself. “I found … I found … I found new hope on November 8 when I heard applause as loud as a thunderstorm when President Hu was delivering his report,” Ju said. “I have finally found … new hope in his 64-page report.”

Ningxia delegate Li Jian said she was similarly moved by Hu’s report, saying the party was determined to create a “beautiful” China that focuses on environmental protection. “I shed tears five times when listening to President Hu’s report,” Li said, adding that she was “proud to be Chinese, and fortunate to be a Ningxia resident”.

Most online users, however, were unmoved by the delegates’ remarks and instead questioned whether their tears were sincere.

One microblog post said Li appeared to be trying to further her political career, one tear at a time. Another said: “Political meetings in other countries are for discussing serious issues. But in China, they are carnivals.”

In a meeting of the Inner Mongolia delegates, regional party chief Hu Chunhua put on a smile when delegate Shan Dan, who is also a reporter with a radio station in Inner Mongolia, said: “The congress kicked off on November 8, which was Journalists’ Day and also my 42nd birthday. I will remember that day all my life.”

And at a meeting of the Guangdong delegates, Du Xiaojuan said she was so excited that she needed to stand up to make her remarks.

The province’s party chief, Wang Yang, started laughing and interrupted by saying: “Maybe if you sit down you can slow your heart rate.” To which Du replied, “I am fine, thanks.”

Wan Qingliang, party secretary of Guangzhou, said Hu’s report was “full of shining points from the innovative theory of Marxism, adding: “It raises my spirit to a higher level, and it makes my heart flutter.”

One mainland political observer said that it is has long been the habit of delegates, seeking to advance their political careers, to make empty remarks and praise leaders.

“Some delegates are just not qualified enough,” said Professor Zhu Lijia of the Chinese Academy of Governance.

Author of the book "Tiananmen's Tremendous Achievements" about how with the help of Tiananmen Protests, talented scholars with moral integrity seized power in the Party and state and brought prosperity to China. The second edition of the book will be published within a few days to mark the 25th anniversary of Tiananmen Protests All the parts in the first edition remain in the second edition with a few changes due to information available later and better understanding. There are also some changes for improvements of style. The new parts are Chapters 12-19 on events in China after the first edition was published: The fierce power struggle for succession between reformists and conservatives; Xi Jinping winning all elders’ support during his mysterious disappearance for 2 weeks in early September, 2012; and Xi Jinping Cyclone. Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.
