Family of 7-Month Forced Abortion Victim Called ‘Traitors’

Banners accusing the Deng family for being traitors to the country in Zhenping county of Shaanxi province.

From NetEase:

Shaanxi family of woman who suffered forced abortion accused of being “national traitors” on banners

@假装在纽约: Shaanxi province Zhenping county. What makes people even more upset than the forced abortion was that the family of the woman who suffered that forced abortion [Feng Jianmei] had repeatedly openly put their trust in the Party and the government, even refusing foreign media interviews as a result. But when they finally had no choice but to accept an interview from a German journalist, the villagers raised banners cursing them as traitors to the country and the father of the woman who suffered the forced abortion was forced to flee. The wolf wants to eat the sheep, and yet the sheep does everything it can to protect the wolf, while the other sheep accuse this sheep of damaging this wolf’s reputation. Just when will the absurdity of this sheep end?

On June 24th, microblog user @假装在纽 posted a microblog message about Shaanxi province Zhenping county putting up a banner insulting the pregnant woman who was forced into labor and her family accompanied with a photograph. This microblog post attracted many netizen’s attention, being forwarded 10,633 times by netizens, with over 2000 comments.

On the 24th, @假装在纽约 once again posted a microblog message: Looked at the Zhenping discussion forum on Baidu, the local government has already organized a large amount of “water army” [individuals or companies that can be paid to post comments on the internet to help shape public opinion], its filled with abuse and rumors against the Deng family——that doctors exposed documents showing it was the Deng family who agreed to abort the baby; that Sister Jicai [a family member of Feng Jianmei] who is depending on selling out her country will soon enter the Japanese AV [adult video] industry as a “dark horse“; that the Deng family agreed to Japanese media interviews, going over to the Japanese, enemies of the country, no different from Chinese traitors; that no one in Zhenping county’s history has ever enjoyed better post-birth care than Feng Jianmei… The Shaanxi Forced Abortion case that has caused a sensation is once again creating waves on microblogs.

At the beginning of June, the Shaanxi province Ankang city Zhenping county Zengjia town government illegally detained a 7-month pregnant woman and forced her to have an abortion. Because the victim’s family doesn’t want compensation and resolutely demand that the people responsible be brought to justice, this incident of forced abortion reached an impasse. After the father of the forcibly aborted 7 and a half month old fetus, Deng Jiyuan, accepted an interview from a German journalist, he was cursed as a "national traitor" by locals, who also raised banners in front of the Deng family's home saying "Punish national traitors, drive them out of Zhenjia Town". They even threatened to banish them from the town.

Talk about a society that has reversed black and white and is overflowing with sewage! How do we put up with this kind of absurdity?

What the fuck. What does this second pregnancy, being unable to pay the fine, and being forced to abort have anything to do with treason? Are they brain dead?????

xysdhr1987 [网易北京市网友]:

According to them, the people who induced labor and committed murder would be patriots then, right? I really don’t want to hurl abuse… [but] fuck you, you motherfucking “patriots”.

Motherfucking, motherland. The child was forcibly aborted, is dead now, you guys should be compensating for the loss, but instead you’re using force to restrict other people’s freedom. It was just a foreign media interview and you fucking label them as traitors. Traitors, your sister! If the rabble had the power or ability to sell out the country, this country would’ve been screwed a hundred million times over long ago. Who are the real traitors to the country is something actually everyone already knows in their hearts. Those who raised the banners, you bunch of SBs, for a bit of money, you’ve completely sold out the most basic morality and self-respect people should have. Do your families actually agree with you SBs doing this kind of filthy disgusting thing?

Please be respectful of others. You have the right to express your views, and likewise I too have this most basic right. The local government is already in bad shape because of this incident, three people were suspended/relieved of their positions, which shows that they too want to resolve this as soon as possible. If “water hasn’t entered their brains” [aren't complete idiots], they wouldn’t jump into the hole of shit after just jumping out of the pool [similar to "out of the frying pan and into the fire"]. What instigated this incident is because they accepted an interview from the Japanese, it can’t be ruled out that some elderly people reacted extremely, because you can’t understand how much hate they have for the Japanese in their hearts, which may not be less than the pain in the heart of the mother who suffered the forced abortion. I am just expounding my point of view, because this is my freedom, what is also what you year for…

网易北京市手机网友: (responding to above)

Suspended/relieved from office? Even executing them wouldn’t be going too far.

This woman is being influenced/directed by certain powers, this is for sure.

中华一统天下 [网易陕西省西安市网友]: (responding to above)

Correct. Originally it was a small matter, but now it has been intentionally made into a big fuss. The Family Planning Bureau has already admitted to their error, and you still go find foreign journalists? You must know, what foreign journalists are the best at is deceiving the masses who can’t figure out the truth, starting fires and fanning the flames, wantonly exaggerating our faults, to achieve their despicable goals. So from this, going to a Japanese reporter is equivalent to being a Chinese traitor. If you have a problem, you can go to the relevant government departments. You shouldn’t accept interviews from the Japanese on your own.

yuenlong2004 [网易广东省网友]: (responding to above)

How about I kill your child then admit fault? How’s that?

You’re such garbage, saying bullshit like going to find foreign reports, do you think you can go find foreign reporters whenever you want? It was the foreign reporter who came to interview her and she accepted to be interviewed, what’s wrong with that?! Is there a national law against accepting foreign interviews?!

Fucking you guys must’ve read too many conspiracy theories.

lhnxml [网易山东省潍坊市网友]: (responding to 双目清泠 & 中华一统天下)

In their eyes, the ordinary common people are just nobodies, so being killed is naturally just a small matter, no big deal. This is a common phenomenon of today’s government officials who do not see the ordinary common people as people. That’s why they will forcibly demolish your homes and watch you self-immolate, make you play hide and seek [refers to police in 2009 explaining a prisoner's death as having ran head first into a wall while playing hide and seek]…

  • Tom Swift

    Why doesn’t someone simply tear down this banner? Why do they leave it up? If it was just locals that paid for the banner and put it up (unlikely), then simply climb up at night and cut it down.

    • Patrick

      Because there really isn’t anything to tear down. There’s only a few men carrying a couple banners on the most pathetic procession I’ve ever seen. Likely the local government paid a few guys to do this. Even in the one photo where you see many people in it, they aren’t part of it. Also you can’t really trust all of the story, the could be some embellishment to make it more interesting.

    • JoE

      Anyone tearing it down will then become a free for all target. By police and people.

      • Dripping Third Leg

        That’s because Chinese don’t have balls, lol
        But I doubt it’s any civilian who puts up this banner, more likely some commie sons of guns working for the propaganda bureau.
        If one day China becomes less nationalistic, China becomes democratic, or at least understands the importance of individualism.

  • Frank Zappa

    i don’t get it.
    Now i’m sure like in the other one will come some to justify, say that the murder is the mother, or that all women after 1st child should be sterilized (why not men).

    anyway, forigner reports are germans like it is said in the text or japans like it is said in some comments?

    • anon

      It could be both. Some people may be calling the father a traitor because he finally accepted an interview with a German reporter and others may be attacking the sister because she may have accepted an interview with Japanese media.

      • moop

        where have you been?>

          • moop

            thats why i thought you had ska-dattled from the post. where the hell were you snowed in at? are you a fucking inuit?

    • hooots

      yeah, after living there a couple years I completely agree. I look back at chinaSMACK just to see what ‘s going on and it blows my mind every time. It’s like China has lost all sense of what it means to be a human being.

      • anon

        Both of you are retarded, as retarded as Roger below, for your self-professed inability to form a holistic opinion of China on more than a few sensational stories. Nevermind that just about all of these stories consistently show people in China who have a very good sense of what it means to be a human being. Nevermind that you would likely think it retarded if Chinese people were to form their opinion of your home country on the basis of a few sensational stories or examples. How do you people even open your mouths and say something like this without immediately realizing how stupid you sound?

        • hooots

          Sorry man, but I have formed this opinion after living in China, working for Chinese people, working with Chinese people, and living with Chinese people for years. It doesn’t come from Chinasmack or reading the news. It comes from reading the faces of the people and hearing their thoughts, feelings, and stories. I’m also sorry that you think someone who forms an opinion after years of first hand experience is “retarded.” I think people that say retarded are retarded.

          Look around man. Ask a large group of Chinese people if they are happy, if their families are happy, if their country is happy. Sure there will be some exceptions but for the most part it’s just a sad place. You know it’s true. Ask a class full of school children how they are. Most everyday they say terrible. I love countless people in China, and I wanted to love the country too, but it was one of the hardest things I’ve ever tried to do. I couldn’t try anymore. I had to get out.

          • anon

            That’s fine, but you can’t blame me for taking your “I look back at chinaSMACK just to see what ‘s going on and it blows my mind every time.”

            I agree that there’s a lot in China that is discouraging but I can’t help but suspect prejudices are ultimately the primary force coloring your opinion of China, given the many offensive comments you’ve posted on this website.

            No, most Chinese people probably aren’t satisfied with where their country and society is at so far, but I would say many Chinese do think things are getting better and I’m happy for them for it. I think its an exaggeration to pain the country and its people as if they’re living in drudgery and misery every day, especially schoolchildren who in my experience are blessed with an innocence to grow up and only realize then how really poor they were but still not think life was that hard because it was just “life”. Life goes on.

            There’s wanting better for another country and its people, but sometimes you cross into pitying them in a way that becomes offensive, that deprives them of dignity, and veers into contempt. Chinese people, like all other people, wouldn’t appreciate that. Lots of shit happen in China, this website and our own experiences are a testament to that, but I wonder if you’ve ever fully appreciated all of the good things that happen in China, the big and small, from netizens donating money to a girl like Lili to the daily small acts of kindness that you’d see if you just stopped expecting Chinese people to be selfish ingrates.

            I think what it is is you guys reacting so harshly to this story. It is not as if we don’t have morons who do stupid confounding shit in our countries. Yes, you’ll say this is just the straw that broke the camel’s back, and point back to all the other disagreeable things you’ve read, seen or experienced. But even then, the harshness of your reaction makes me think you guys are unfairly preoccupied with only one side of China and its people, the negative side.

            Of course, you guys may be more fair and rational off this site, but I can only go by what you guys say here.

          • anon

            Sorry, that first paragraph should end with “at face value.”

            I actually feel a little embarrassed for responding to you with such sincerity since I have very little reason judging by your past comments to think I’ll get anything back other than a snort of derision. Its natural for this site, by virtue of its content, to get people bashing China and the Chinese but I just wish more people of that sort would themselves remember what it means to be a human being because the things they blurt out do not reflect upon their own humanity very well.

          This is going to raise another ruckas and more idiots will get canned.

          Naw the way I figure it they’ll fire the only two guys trying to do a good job. Looking for an idiot to fire would require the idiot doing so to understand he is an idiot and then find someone like himself. He’ll probably walk out his office at 11 in the morning and fire the first two people he sees, the only two guys in the office, because the other slack-jawed twats are all out shopping.

    • jiayi

      Your average Chinese Joe keeps making these head honchos richer and richer every single day, and to be honest they don’t really want to do anything about it. ‘All fart and no shit’ as it goes. Instead of despising these rich fucks, they aspire to become like them. Instead of saying ‘driving a Roll’s Royce bought with peasant’s abortion clinic money & keeping 10 ernai whores on the side is wrong’ they say ‘Why can’t I be like him?’. Instead of doing anything pro-active they take pictures on their camera phones and complain about their problems online. Which is incredibly satisfying, but most often isn’t enough to spark a revolution.

  • D. Tective

    So all the Chinese media interviewing foreigners are also traitors? The foreigners who grant interviews? Just kick out all foreigners from China and be done with it already, China. Stop wearing foreign-brand clothes, using foreign technology, remove English from the Gaokao, make all women wear qipaos and men wear Mao suits.

    • hooots

      THAT’S WHAT I’M SCREAMING!!!! They gorge themselves with our style, our pop culture, our art, our music, our entertainment, and then act like foreign things are somehow disturbing their society. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!?!?!?! Go see what your Chinese children are buying, wearing, listening to, watching, playing, emulating, …. None of it comes from China because they don’t let them create anything. The whole idea that they are trying to push out foreign influence is laughable and pathetic.

      • anon

        Have you guys considered that maybe this isn’t an opinion held by all Chinese uniformly and to the same level of cognitive dissonance? The flip side of this would be indignantly blasting Westerners in general for some of them complaining about China demanding that they give up just about everything they own, use, and consume because its all made in China. What is wrong with you people?

      I think if there ever was a day where China could claim technological parity with the US or Europe, they would kick out all foreigners in an instant. Then they would continue to wear jeans and listen to Lady Gaga and think nothing of the contradiction.

      • anon

        I’d say that’s very unlikely. Given the amount of anti-foreigner sentiment that has been drummed up by governments and various parts of society throughout China’s history and the fact that Chinese people on the whole have still been completely fine with immigrating abroad, consuming foreign media and lifestyles, and tolerating foreigners in their midst, you needn’t worry about this coming to pass. We learned how to coexist with blacks, Asians, and Arabs in our midst. They will learn just fine as well. We’re just further along the multiculturalism bent than they are because we had more attractive lands for immigration throughout recent history.

    • wacky

      so do you know how the foreign media would tell about the abortion??
      would they tell it as it is or would they blow it out of proportion??

      spreading pop culture is one thing but spreading misinformation is another thing, so far i have watched cnn, bbc, or any other western media and i know that most of the time they spread their own agenda rather than the truth.

      the fact is chinese people do not complain too much about foreign this and foreign that as much as foreigner complain about made in china product and china take our job or foreign immigrant are taking over the country

      • anon

        Half of your comment is a needed reminder here. The other half is bordering on conspiracy theory. In most cases, any misinformation from Western media can be blamed on private interests. Misinformation from the Chinese media can often be blamed on state/government direction. Both are worrisome and disheartening, but there’s an appreciable difference. Overall though, there’s a healthy amount of ignorance on both sides fueled and perpetuated by ignorant people in the media on both sides. Would you agree that’s fair?

    The extent to which there’s an expectation that negative news shouldn’t be reported about China is astounding. If the local Chinese media were freer then they’d be better able to swallow the truth (cause they would get truer info). There are endless negative news stories about America — reported in America (by Americans) and accross the world. To those in China who think the foreign press only report negative info about China, what exactly does Chinese media report about the US?

    The worst part is the damn crazy-high level of nationalism! To be fair, there are, of course, such nationalists in the USA and other countries, too. It’s just that most places in the world have more of a balance. In China, by the government’s design, there’s just rampant, unchecked nationalism.

    • wacky

      if the local media were freer the distortion and misinformation would get more rampant, which is truer according to you msnbc or fox news???

      most of the foreign press report about china is all about bad thing, i dont know about chinese media but the only english language cctv news rarely speak bad about america or any western countries most broadcasts are pro china but not anti america.
      the most anti american international media i’ve watched so far are press tv iran and russia today

      • anon

        Bad news sells anywhere. People generally don’t like their dirty laundry aired out for everyone to see. A lot of Americans would also throw a hissy fit if they felt some country’s news coverage of the US was predominantly negative, except most Americans in the US are insular enough to not consume any foreign media so they have no idea nor do they very much care. Plenty of Americans in China think Chinese news is always reporting negative about the US and other countries, partly because it fits the narrative that China is all nationalistic xenophobic propaganda all the time, but part of it is also because they’re conveniently ignoring the positive reports that actually aren’t that rare, especially on the Chinese internet. But of the above, if there is one thing to remember, its that bad news sells. I can’t think of a single country where this isn’t the case. There are countries that might suppress their OWN bad news, but most reporting about other countries is heavily skewed towards the negative, not because of nationalism and xenophobia, but just because that’s what people gravitate towards: the sensational and controversial. That’s why most of the stories on chinaSMACK are negative, because that’s what becomes popular.

          Insular? It’s all foreign media/news sources these days.(AAP, UPI, Reuters, Tass, Al-jazeera, Xinhua to name a few) It’s called the Internet. Unless you’re convinced all us Murrikans watch Good Morning America for the daily news. Just because we don’t read the fine print for the original source doesn’t mean we’re not reading foreign media.

          • anon

            I would still say “most” Americans are insular. Most of that “most” not intentionally or with ill intent. It’s just the way it is. Big country, top of the heap…hard to really genuinely care about things far away that doesn’t really personally affect you and your own.

    “finally had no choice but to accept an interview from a German journalist”

    Interesting. Are they claiming the German journalists also dragged her away with 20 accompanying journalists and bricked her up in a room and abused her until she willingly interviewed?

    • D. Tective

      They felt compelled because the local media ignored her story and local officials ignored her plight. There was little else to do, and when peoples’ families are threatened or attacked, you use any measure at your disposal.

    • anon

      Yeah, I think that’s just a translation issue. The English translation could be interpreted that way but if you can read the original Chinese, its more clear that the family simply felt they had no choice but to finally interview with foreign media when initially they didn’t want to because they were pinning their hopes on The Party and Government. I’m not even sure the foreign media broke this story first though so there’s something questionable about this. I’m fairly certain they went online with their story and took the Chinese internet by storm first, which is what then brought all domestic and foreign journalists to them. This was already a big news story in China before any foreign journalists got involved.

      • Frank Zappa

        thanks to have clarified, i was puzzled with that “they have no choice”. In this way it sounds resonable.

    • Somethin Somethin

  • 平凡人

    The local government probably paid the people to do it. I struggle to believe they did it because they felt this story brought shame to the country and they are loyal citizens. LOL

  • moop

    i’m surprised they didnt just stand around the family in a circle, pointing and chastising them. did these turds leave their neck placards and dunce hats at home? must have been busy smelting pig iron.

  • Appalled@everything

    Anyone else feel an eminent implosion? Those Chinese netizen comments… wow.

    Yeah, this story really highlights how far down this country has fallen. It isn’t even funny anymore. It’s barren and bleak. No place to be, nor life to live, nor happiness to be had here. All just bad now. Emulating a western picture of shallow virtue yet substituting those very virtues of warmth with greed; sympathy with cowardice, respect with vanity. Like a child being raised by pigs.

    On one tiny little bright side, this poor murdered baby didn’t have to live life in this God forsaken miserable shithole.

    • hooots

      My thoughts exactly. It’s turning into a barren wasteland. A dead zone of happiness.

    • The Enlightened One

      Yeah, I realized one definite thing while being here in China.

      They are desperate to be happy. I mean a lot of times they pretend their are happy… tell each other to be happy and smile when nervous, sad, scared or happy (obviously). BUT mostly, they are NOT happy.

      Most of them are stressed, depressed, emotionally repressed, feel trapped, guilty (to their parents), and committing suicide is not big thing. Talk to a lot of university students before about it?

      They will tell you that people jumping off the buildings is no big thing, happens all the time… usually the information is suppressed. Escapism (alcohol and video games) is a HUGE issue in China. That’s why you see booze shops and net bars almost everywhere.

      China REALLY needs to invest a lot of money in psychological aid. I see it being big in the future as China develops.

      • anon

        There are booze shops and internet bars all over Japan and Korea too, but I wouldn’t go so far as to assume too much about national depression. That’s more like a Texas Sharpshooter fallacy.

        I would actually say there’s a lot more hope and ambition for a better future and life in China over the past decade than there has been in many decades before that. Lamentations about poverty and corruption has always been a mainstay of Chinese society, mainly because the vast majority of Chinese society has historically been consistently poor. Remember, it wasn’t until after the Industrial Revolution that there was a build-up of large middle-class populations that now largely define what a first-world developed nation is like. Prior to that, our countries were like China, with a small ruling class at the top of the pyramid and huge base of underclass. If we went by what the underclass fretted about back then, it would look a lot like China. During the Industrial Revolution, also like China.

        The poor have a lot to worry about. Pessimism and cynicism is always rampant. It defines existence at that level. A lot of us have forgotten that. If you take a snapshot, most Chinese people are only one generation into rising standards of living and a middle class has (in the grand scheme of things) only begun to form and feel comfortable with their position in society, and they’re still a small group overall. There’s a lot for Chinese people to continue being cynical about, but I think an objective look at Chinese society would have to recognize that there’s actually a lot of growing hope and pride in their country and life circumstances. Things are bleak, but I think its inaccurate and misleading to paint a picture of Chinese society being in some sort of downward spiral of gloom. Overall, it isn’t.

        • The Enlightened One

          Yes, I agree that they are making progress in some areas. Although, the gap between the middle class and poor is becoming something I have never seen happen before. The gap between the wealthy and poor is just monumental.

          Korea and Japan also have high suicidal rates for students. Even higher than China – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_suicide_rate

          So the also have loads of escapism methods in order to cope as well. Just too much pressure on the work force and the students. Japan is going through a massive population decline. It’s estimated in the millions, because most Japanese are just too busy to have children or can afford them.

    • Appalled@everything

      Why would you call Obama? The Senate doesn’t listen to him, nor support him, nor does he have any power. He is president yet, unlike Bush, he is not in a position of power, because he isn’t a republican, or a corporate puppet.

      • moop

        “nor does he have any power” o rly? i guess he doesnt order drone-murders then

    • Patrick

      Seriously I got to hear about American politics on CNN (doesn’t matter what the article is about), Facebook, and just about every social platform I see. Can’t we leave that stupid shit off here. It’s a site about China. Deriding a health care reform bill, or American democrats or republicans is just plain useless. If you have some compromising pictures of Obama banging a Chinese girl ( or boy ) then leak it to the appropriate place so the Chinese can jump all over that story, Fauna can translate it and then you can bitch about Obama.

      • DRaY

  • Roger

    Foreign media does in fact have bias towards affairs in china(serving their own agenda just like all media). However, calling the woman and her family traitorous is unjustified.

  • Roger

    Why does this site never post anything positive about China? China just had a successful docking of their space station and sent the first woman into space.

    • Brett Hunan

      Yea, all of that news is in the foreign papers, too. You can read about it anywhere.

    • moop

      because they are 30 years late. its not really news. if they are the first ones to colonize mars or something then its noteworthy. besides, everyone knows that bad news sells.

      • Roger

        by that logic calling someone a traitor for talking to foreign media is not news either. im sure someone did that millenia ago.

        • moop

          yes, the emporer was giving foreign journalists the lowdown in 1012AD . its not news, in the sense that it isnt good news, it makes no impact on the world. its something that chinese will try to be proud of like the silly submarine that just reached a “chinese record” depth. so what? its all been done before by other people. its newsworthy in china for obvious reasons, but in the west its a news story so that they can play up on the sensationalism of “china’s rise”.

          • Roger

            this story means absolutely jack shit.

            its just some random farmers who got paid by the local government to badmouth their victim. yet somehow someway, chinasmack will go out of their way to report this story as opposed to actual achievements like a space station docking.

          • moop

            lets see…. this is a follow up story to a woman having her child forcefully aborted by government officials. tell which one of these things is news: A grave violation of human rights and the loss of a life or a chinese woman being the 40th-something woman in space?

          • moop

            human life=jack shit

            meaningless achievement achieved by many others= really fucking important

            roger, you are a clown

          • moop

            my facts were a little off:

            “55 different women total including cosmonauts, astronauts, payload specialists, and foreign nationals have flown in space.

            6 different female cosmonauts have flown on the Soviet/Russian program*

            1 female astronaut or taikonaut has flown in the Chinese program

            48 different women have flown with NASA”

            so it’s actually less impressive than i thought

          • linette

            Roger

            Space station docking is an achievement. But do not neglect human rights. A country without human rights and justice is nothing and I can careless how many space ship they docked in Jupiter or Pluto.

            This story is just one out of thousands giving you an idea of what’s going on in China in those rural areas. This is how they treat human life. Do you want to live in a country where they treat the poor lower than animals but they can dock space ships? We are Chinese. We all want China to be strong. A country that’s safe to live. Where all men/women are created equal. A gov’t system that provide equal opportunities for both the rich and the poor. Equal access to education, health care, housing, etc….

            http://www.chinasmack.com/2012/stories/7-month-pregnant-woman-forced-into-labor-to-abort-unborn-baby.html

            Go read this first. Have better understanding with the one child policy and look up the forced abortion in those rural areas in China. You sound like an intelligent person. Maybe you are just not too familiar. I wasn’t familiar with the OCP neither until I read from other bloggers. Maybe it will change your view.

          • The Enlightened One

            I agree with Linette,

            It is actually more embarrassing that you can send people into space but you act so stupid when it comes to human rights and then paying people off or promoting the fact they are ‘traitors’.

            While I was watching the spaceship docking with some friends and it said that is was being done manually… I laughed. I told them it was most likely being done by computers and just told everything that the Chinese guy was doing it to make it seem more heroic… They all looked at me thoughtfully. I said “Come on, if you paid billion of RMB for this would you leave it up to some middle aged guy strapped in a chair or a super computer you can control yourself?”

            I think I ruined the moment for them a little.

            By the way, all the girl did the entire time on camera was hand the leader his button-pusher cane every once in a while and pretend to read the manual… Chinese are not much for entertainment.

          • Bunny99

            “I can careless how many space ship they docked in Jupiter or Pluto.”

            !

    • Andao

      How many Chinese are going to go to space?

      How many Chinese might have their kids forcibly aborted.

      So this is why this story is more important.

      • The Enlightened One

        Because a civilization should not be judged by how many people they send into vast open darkness that is space but by how they treat their people, their animals and how they can co-exist with each other “harmoniously”.

        China focuses on presentation rather than substance… and it is becoming more and more apparent.

    • anon

      http://www.chinasmack.com/2012/videos/bus-driver-struck-by-road-debris-saves-his-passengers-first.html

      This site often reports positive stuff about China. It just depends on whether or not you remember them or if it is convenient for you to forget that fact at the moment. They operate by whatever is popular, whatever Chinese netizens are chatting about online. This story was at the top of NetEase, one of the biggest online news sites in China.

      The fact is, most news that becomes popular tend to be “negative”. That’s just the way it is, everywhere. Often the popular “positive” stories become popular only because they can easily be juxtaposed against “negative” things. It is the negative and controversial things that get people talking. This site promises to report on what people are talking, it doesn’t promise to report negative or positive things, just what’s popular. It does a good job of it.

      Even so, it often misses big stories. That’s fine, its only a few people, we can’t expect them to get everything. But the key is that they miss popular “positive” stories AS WELL AS “negative” stories. There are masses of commenters here who regularly complain about why chinaSMACK didn’t cover whatever recent scandal or controversy. You’re the flipside of the same coin. The answer for both is either that something isn’t actually that popular to qualify by their criteria or they just didn’t get around to it because they can’t cover everything.

      Whatever the case, you can hardly accuse them of never posting anything positive about China. That’s just your own selective memory. They’re even running a fundraiser for a Chinese girl afflicted with a rare skin condition right now, with the post on every single page. Have you donated yet?

      Because no one gives a shit about China’s “space docking” either here or in the blogosphere. Most people I hear talking about it spend most of their time talking about how boring this mission is and how meaningless it is in the whole spectrum of things. So I doubt the weibo comments on it were that good so Fauna said whatevs and let it pass.

  • Roger

    I also wanna make a comment about netease: it is the most mind numblingly braindead website ever, especially the comments. even more so than chinese government news sites like people’s daily.

    • anon

      Law of numbers, my friend, law of numbers. I’d rather chinaSMACK pick their stories according to what’s popular on NetEase than People’s Daily though. The whole reason we visit this site is to get an idea of what Chinese netizens themselves are reading and sqwuaking about.

      At this point, you’re pretty much whining because you just don’t like what you’re reading. I really don’t want this site to start catering to what people want to read, picking stories and comments just so certain people can feel warm and fuzzy inside.

          • whiskersthecat

            Roger, shut up. Sending women to space and docking with space stations is old news. Now if they start docking with women in space, then we should like to see that.

            If you want to counter a negative story with a positive one, make sure it’s on the same topic. Forced late-term abortions and space travel aren’t the same topic. If the story were about, say, China being shitty about technology, then yes you could come back and say “well their scientists docked with a woman in space for the first time ever”.

        • anon

          I’m sad that Brett pointed you to the FAQ and you still haven’t figured it out. What is “newsworthy” for this site is what becomes popular and discussed on the Chinese internet. That’s the mission of this site. It’s on the About page and the FAQ. Are you brain dead? If you can prove that this story is somehow grossly less popular than the other stories this website translates and posts about, you could jump on the moral pedestal and accuse them of failing to live up to their stated mission.

          Unfortunately, if you go look at the source, you’d have to admit that this story was trending on NetEase (amongst other places). They did exactly what they promised they would do. The question is why you ever thought chinaSMACK should change its mission to fit your delicate sensibilities?

          Should foreigners drop in on Chinese discussion forums and demand Chinese media to stop perpetuating negative stories about their countries, welcoming racism, name calling, and all other negative behaviors? No doubt there are people who would (if they could), but at some point you need to take your head out of your ass.

          This site has a stated mission. You can judge it against what it professes to do. You can even just not like what it professes to do. But failing to understand what it professes to do or intentionally mischaracterizing it reflects upon your own intellectual dishonesty.

          Now I see why Chinese educators don’t let you ask questions in school. They know that you will never fucking get it, so just memorize it. Here is what you need to know: A mother was FORCED into abortion at 7 months by the gov’t, then realizing they can’t trust/communicate/engage with the gov’t they sought out a reporter who would actually listen. To sum up the victims are now called traitors by other villagers. Got it! now go kiss your mother for not aborting you.

        Chinese farmers are not stupid. They are uneducated. The China gov’t make sure they are uneducated and not to provide any good public school system in the rural areas of China. The gov’t need to exploit them for their cheap labor. I am sure if given the opportunity in their younger years, the Chinese farmers too can become educated.

        • The Enlightened One

          Exactly, they are not stupid at all. They just don’t know any better because nobody has taught them. But a lot of them are getting the internet (I have seen computers in mud houses) and are inevitable getting smarter.

          which country in the world has money to pay a good education for 1 bilion and more of people? i think we can’t say it’s just gov fault.. they already done a lot teaching them all to read and to write, while in the previous generations it was really rare.

          • The Enlightened One

            Well, it kind of is their fault.

    • moop

      you dont really get it do you? it is a FOLLOW UP to a popular story here on this website. it is a FOLLOW UP to a story that was about human rights abuses and the nationalism aspect goes hand-in-hand with the recent news here in china about foreigners and Yang Rui’s ridiculous comments.

      Again, considering the fact that man has been docking with space stations since 1978, its NOT NEWS.

      • Roger

        yes. and i can invent a FOLLOW UP story about where that poor woman went for dinner.

        these idiots do NOT represent the VAST MAJORITY of chinese. thats the point im trying to make here.

        • moop

          so this story was invented? this woman is being harrassed for bringing the attention of foreign media to human rights abuses. you still don’t get it. are you chinese?

          • Roger

            you again fail to acknowledge the main point im trying to make. which is that these people do not represent the vast majority of chinese.

          • moop

            who cares what your point is? we can see from the comments that these views arent held by a majority of chinese, we can also see this in the article before that. you have no point. your point it saying “the sky is blue”. it’s too obvious to be a point.

          • anon

            I disagree with moop, the space docking is news in China and if its popular amongst Chinese netizens, then it could very well be posted on chinaSMACK. It doesn’t matter if some people don’t think its news, all that matters is that Chinese people are buzzing about it. That’s the point of this site. Not what we commenters dictate as newsworthy.

            That said, moop is correct that this is a follow-up story but more importantly, this is a POPULAR follow-up report to an earlier news story, which multiple people have already pointed out to you, Roger, and which is explicitly stated and linked in the translated news story above itself. It’s popular, hence it qualifies to be on this site. Don’t like that editorial criteria? Good luck convincing Fauna and the site to abandon it.

            Next, you suggesting follow-up stories being “invented” was you being a retard and asking for it. How could anyone not react to you possibly suggesting this was an “invented” story. They give you their sources, anyone can check for themselves, so you taking that route to express your displeasure with this post is just “brain dead”. You only have yourself to blame for that.

            Moreover, that suggestion didn’t really help your main point that these people do not represent the vast majority of Chinese. First, this site already cautions people against making that assumption (see FAQ). Second, unfortunately, there are some people who still insist on making such assumptions (which I’m often flamed for taking issue with myself). Third, did you not read the multitude of Chinese netizen comments that very clearly show that what these people did is not in the least bit agreeable to many other Chinese people? Interestingly, this third point applies equally to the retards in this thread who are getting ahead of themselves talking as if these retards represent Chinese society in general. And here we have you who thinks the opposite but making the same mistake.

            Just as a news report featuring parents in Los Angeles spouting off about Confucius Institutes being dangerous Communist propaganda machines doesn’t necessarily reflect the vast majority of Americans, a news report about some villagers in Shaanxi raising banners calling a family traitors obviously doesn’t necessarily represent the vast majority of Chinese. Especially not after Fauna goes through the trouble of translating something like 30 Chinese netizen comments, many of them being amongst the most upvoted comments on Netease, mostly flaming those villagers.

            How do you read these things and not process it into a sensible conclusion?

      • Roger

        again. yang rui does not represent the views of the vast majority of chinese. if you knew china better you would agree.

        I would say that the majority of chinese like the west and envy it. if somewhat blindly

        • moop

          so, he’s a public figure and he wasn’t even reprimanded by the CCP who he is a mouthpiece of. hurrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. apparently i know china better than you do ya dummy

          • Roger

            again. the ccp “official party line” no longer represents the viewpoints of most chinese.

            if you talked to more chinese you would realize this. but then again, you seem to be convinced that all chinese hate westerners.

          • Roger

            you seem completely ignorant of what chinese people believe in: pursuit of happiness and humane treatment of all people.

          • moop

            yes, my wife hates westerners so much she married me. it doesnt matter if the ccp official party line no longer represents most chinese. its the only party in china and they hold all the power, and they are the only voice inside of china and the only voice for china to the outside world. you really are a tedious ass

          • moop

            “pursuit of happiness and humane treatment of all people.”

            hahhahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahhahahahhh

            please go fuck yourself with that bullshit. tell the tibetans and the uighurs if they feel that way. or the thousands of their own people rotting in black jails.

            please ask your countrymen to fucking prove it. their actions more or less say otherwise

          • moop

            typical chinese mainland beliefs of people 30 years and older (there is still some hoope in the younger generations): my country is the center of the world, and i am the center of the universe, lines are optional and road rules are a boor. my son (if i am lucky) is the SUN and i revolve around him.
            china’s experiencing a rebirth and soon it will be time for the rest of the world that wronged us to repent or face being surrounded by jutting jaws and pointed fingers and chastisment.
            we are a very accepting and loving people, which is why we stare and point at people that are different from us eventhough it would make us uncomfortable if the situation was reversed. we are a very accepting society but anyone in asia who is not chinese is just a japanese yellow dog or a yellow monkey. we are very generous and therefore actually have the process of only giving in order to recieve institutionalized.
            we are very prideful people and take face very seriously. its very different from “honor”. we can do morally unjustifiable things as long as we don’t get caught, thats why its called “face”, because it only matters what is percieved and not what is done.

          • jin

            wowwa moop got a reason to troll and spam chinasmack now, you were born for this moment!!! congratz you did your life purpose, now die.

          • moop

            look up the word troll and then look up the word spam. then hit yourself over the head with a hammer ’cause you’re a retard

          • anon

            Roger, what Yang Rui said unfortunately represents the views of quite a lot of Chinese people, especially when they’re caught up in the moment. It’s just like a lot of commenters here (or people prone to generalizations everywhere). If they calmed down, they don’t necessarily hold to those views absolutely, but given the right circumstances, they can be just as irrational. It’s stupid to think he represents all Chinese, but its also stupid to dismiss him.

            Yang Rui also didn’t represent the CCP’s official party line either. His views actually represented heat-of-the-moment nationalistic xenophobes more than the CCP. He wasn’t speaking as a representative of CCTV, just himself. It’s just that he will invariably reflects upon CCTV and the CCP.

            Of course Chinese people believe in pursuit of happiness and humane treatment, especially for themselves. EVERYONE believes in this. Who doesn’t want to be happy or humane treatment (and yes, they’re usually thinking about themselves) That they believe in this doesn’t mean they don’t believe in other things, Roger. You’re literally angry at others tarring Chinese people one “negative” brush but instead of shaming them with the fact that diverse Chinese people are diverse in their beliefs, you go to the opposite extreme and tar the Chinese with some “positive” brush. How do you expect to be taken seriously?

            That said, moop, if there were only two sides here, I wouldn’t really want to be on your side either. I think you could’ve reacted more effectively. Roger’s position and comments were so absurd, this was really your battle to lose.

          • jin

            moop you mad?

        • Roger

          yes. here you are acknowledging that a chinese woman is willing to marry a western person like yourself, on the other hand thinking that most chinese hate the west.

          talk to 10 people in china. I guarantee 7 or 8 will say positive things about the west and say they are disappointed with the CCP.

          • Roger

            its obvious from your comments you know nothing about china.

            I have nothing more to say to you

          • moop

            i never said most chinse hated the west. so you are still not making any valid points despite the number of posts you’ve made

          • moop

            lived here for years and you can continue to go fuck yourself. you had nothing to say from the beginning you clown, not reading your pointless shit would be a blessing.

          • Roger

            rude and ignorant. yep. pretty much characterizes the typical you know who

            if you hate it so much go back to your home country.

          • moop

            haha, never said i hated china either. i do hate the ccp and i also hate people like you though

        • Roger

          whatever. you have very little ability to logically debate an issue

          • anon

            I’m going to fulfill my role as grand arbiter here and say both of you didn’t debate very logically.

          • Northerner

            Roger, I’d like to join the debate at this point and say, you are obviously a cunt.

            I’m sure you don’t realise the fact your self but that doesn’t change the grim reality.

            Please die soon.

    • linette

      Roger

      …..why is it that nationalism on the part of the ignorant become more newsworthy than an actual achievement such as the docking of a space station?…..

      Because there are too many ignorant and they are part of the China society.
      Why is it more newsworthy the docking of a space station than China commonly practiced ripping babies out of 7 months pregnant women like this woman, then accuse her of being a traitor for seeking help? I would rather pay more attention to the humanity issue in the society.

    • Roger

      whatever

      you have very little ability to logically debate an issue.

      • moop

        “if you hate it so much go back to your home country.”

        why? so people like you can continue to do nothing to make it better or push for it? if more chinese acted like you say they believe would there be so many societal problems today here? but you would rather us all be distracted by unimportant nationalist rainbows. the chinese space mission is just a token. its all been done before and it is unimportant.

        Now back to our regular scheduled programming.

        • Brett Hunan

          He seems to have stopped posting. I think thats a record for quickest time running someone out of here.

          • Roger

            nice little expat circle jerk here.

            im out though

            have fun you silly boys

          • Roger

            yes silly little wolf. youve just jerked off moop 15 times. im sure both of you enjoyed it.

          • mr. wiener

            don’t let the door hit you in the arse.

          • Roger

            sure mr. wiener

            you should keep it in your pants though. i heard there was a circle jerk around here.

          • Brett Hunan

            Roger, I don’t think you get it. Regardless of whether or not a story is “newsworthy”, chinaSMACK posts stories that get the most attention. They just happen to often be negative, sensationalistic, stories because that is what people comment on.

            Whether or not you feel people ganged up on you, the reason is that we enjoy reading these stories; the good, the bad, the sad, the happy, the extreme, the “inhuman”, all of it.

            You are right, China isn’t like all of the netizens that post on Netease. The netizens ARE, however, definitely a faction of the Chinese population and this does count for something. No one here thinks that the comments of individuals account for all that encapsulates China and Chinese citizens. If they do, they are most surely wrong (and remarkably idiotic).

            You can’t just waltz in here and start slinging shit, challenging everything about the site that we all enjoy reading (less the racist part), and not expect to hear some slack about it.

            If you would like to have a conversation, without the feces throwing, try to address the real matters. This site isn’t going to change because you or I or anyone wants it to.

            If you would like to defend China and Chinese people, by all means do so. But keep it relevant and instead of challenging the chosen stories and comments, challenge the idiocy that us posters pour out too.

          • Roger

            on the contrary Brett. I started out very respectful. This is my few days knowing this site and I happened to see that the majority of comments on here were remarkably anti-china or anti-chinese. With great restraint, I made my first comment, which simply stated that all media have their own political agenda and it was wrong to call the woman a traitor.

            soon after, some shits on this site started with the ad-hominim attacks that soon escalated into a full fledged shitstorm. My first instinct was to leave but I wanted to make one point which was that not all chinese people are not xenophobic nazis as this site might imply.

            and I could give less of a damn about what the goal or purpose of this site is.

          • moop

            might i suggest some johnson&johnson no more tears shampoo?

          • Roger

            thank you moop

            your ignorance of china despite living here for so long was making me cry

            I must congratulate you on coming up with a response that isnt ad-hominim mud slinging. because thats what monkeys do

          • Roger

            you expats are too easy. no wonder you couldn’t find a job back in your home country.

          • moop

            actually you are proving to be quite the stereotype. enjoy the shampoo girly-mouth. at least you’ll be a tearless stereotype with clean hair ya pussy

          • moop

            “you expats are too easy. no wonder you couldn’t find a job back in your home country.”

            sent here by an australian company and i work with the chinese government and make a decent sum of money. keep throwing around that “can’t find a job” grenade, its bound to hit something, but it wont hit most of us here.

          • mr. wiener

            Ahh,
            So you came here to a site who’s articles you don’t agree with , tried to have a serious argument. ignored anyone who did want to have a serious argument [like anon] and now you are still here to tell all the expats what losers they are.
            We’ll I guess we’ve all been told then.

          • Roger

            moop… moop

            when will you get it. you cant win. you will just get humiliated again and again if you refuse to come up with any creative comebacks. You need to do better than calling someone a pussy. A elementary student can do better than that.

            then again, theres a reason why expats here in china couldnt find a job in the western world.

          • mr. wiener

            Started my own business, it sux to be me.

          • Roger

            yes. im sure all of you started a “business” here in china. the living standards here are soo much better than in the west right.

            dont give me that shit about being an employee of a international company in china. not even us chinese want to stay in this country.

          • moop

            now come the self-contratulatory pats on the back like he’s won something.

            roger, you not only don’t grasp what this story and website are about, you fail to grasp reality. you’ve been inventing your own in every post. you have not made a single clear point and even the points you did try to make were not well defended. that is because you are full of shit and lack the mental capacity to form a reasonable argument. mommy and daddy wasted a lot of money sending you overseas to get an education.

          • Brett Hunan

            not even us chinese want to stay in this country.

            Wow, Roger, you really outdid yourself with that one.

          • moop

            we’re here to cohabitate with your women and take gps maps of this godforsaken land. didnt you get the memo? of course you did.

          • Little Wolf

            Oh waaaaahhhhhhh, Roger! Unable to manipulate this site to fit your agenda so you want to bitch and complain because some “shits” aren’t going to allow you to just start running things around here?

            Why is it the biggest displays of balls from Chinese on this site are mostly coming from 3 girls? (Linette, Fauna and eattot)

          • whiskersthecat

            Roger, why are you so defensive? You keep saying the same things over and over. “They don’t represent the vast majority of Chinese!” We get it. I think the point of the story was to say that these people in this village called her a traitor, not the majority of Chinese.

            But I do like how, in your nationalist rage, you started echoing the same lame attempts at insults over and over. How many times did you mention a “circle jerk”? It sounds like you’re hinting at what you’re desiring: A bunch of white men surrounding you, circle jerking.

            You’re so dense, Roger, and you’ve made a fool of yourself. I’m guessing you’re going to get defensive and say that your foolishness doesn’t represent the vast majority of the Chinese populace, right?

          • The Enlightened One

            Oh Roger,

            You tell us (westerners) not to generalize and then you get angry and made a huge sweeping statement that all westerners here couldn’t land a job back home. English teacher or not, that doesn’t mean anyone is a loser.

            I am self-employed and run an online business. I could do it from my home country, China or wherever. I do it from here because my wife is close to her family and I want her to be happy… but people like YOU and your government… make it increasingly difficult. Because I am a westerner in China, I am automatically a loser? I can’t make it in my own country? What kind of idiocy is this? Isn’t that more or less insulting your homeland, your people and yourself?

            You really do fit the stereotype once you get a little rattled.

          • whiskersthecat

            I’m a photographer, if we’re all listing our jobs for Roger. Well, I’m a photographer even if we aren’t. You know what I mean. I would love to photograph you though, Roger.

            Looks like I really did strike a nerve with the no jobs comment. I made every expat on here list what their job is. :D

            I still love laowai though.

          • Roger

            By the way my boys, hows that Chinese language study coming along? I mean after so many years in the heavenly kingdom your Chinese skills have gotten up to high school level right?

          • mr. wiener

            You know what I think pisses you off the most Roger? Spending all that time and money studying OS ,or at a very good school, or being an ABC and getting back to China and thinking you are going to be the shit…..and WTF those blasted girls are all chasing laowai!
            Fuck!
            And look at the bastards. These guys are losers back in their own country! Why don’t you girls want me?! ME! ME! ME! ME! ME! ME! ME! ME! ME! ………………

            It’s ok to feel like that, really, you’ll find a nice girl one day, In fact I know a nice half german half chinese girl I could set you up with, She even posts on here sometimes….goes by the name of Hongjian.

          • anon

            Hongjian is several orders of magnitude more intelligent than this guy. I must say, I’m starting to suspect Roger isn’t even Chinese, or at least definitely not an ordinary mainland Chinese person.

            I haven’t checked if I’ve gotten any replies on my previous responses to you, Roger, but I think you’re being both unfair and dishonest (not to say that moop doesn’t have his faults but you need to be honest with yourself too). Did anyone take any issue with your initial respectful comments? I don’t think so. People took issue with your subsequent comments that were questionable. Don’t conflate the two as if anyone was being unfair to you. I’ll grant that moop’s reactions to you weren’t very polite, but you were hardly being polite to him either.

            You have two main points here:

            1) These villagers in Shaanxi don’t represent the vast majority of Chinese people.

            Yes, that’s very likely true. Your mistake is in thinking everyone here thinks that. Notice that there are a lot of different commenters here. SOME have made comments that suggests they’re generalizing and being ignorant. OTHERS have not. You need to avoid generalizing the commenters here just as you want the commenters here to not generalize the Chinese.

            2) You object to this site’s content and regardless of what its stated purpose and methodology is, you want it to post more positive stories about China.

            I’ve already responded to you about this. Bottom line is that you’re whining because you don’t like what you see and you’re unwilling to be rational about it, demanding that others conform to your whims. That’s just not going to happen. Get a clue. There are two things you should be doing: 1) Trying to lessen the negative things that happen in China, and 2) Trying to encourage greater rationality from those who are beholding the negative things about China. What you shouldn’t be doing is trying to stick your head in the ground and demand that everyone else do the same.

          • linette

            ……and WTF those blasted girls are all chasing laowai!…

            Stop putting Chinese guys down. Many and many Chinese women love Chinese men. My father he is THE BEST. The Chinese girls who find good Chinese boys they are lucky to have each other.
            I don’t understand why you folks keep saying those Chinese girls are chasing laowai. Not the Chinese girls around me.

            Anyway, any women that chase after men they need to get a reality check. It should be the other way around.

          • Roger

            Haha. with these expats it’s always about something sexual. Notice I never mentioned a thing about chinese women and their preferences. I welcome chinese women to date whoever they want.

            why do you people always quote yang rui? is it because you are idiots like he is?

          • Roger

            I think it is amusing that expats who couldnt didnt settle down in their home country, instead going to a third world country like my own, are proud of the fact that there are girls who like you.

    sigh…

    nobody managed to answer my question: “why does this specific story about some uneducated people calling a victim a traitor become newsworthy?”

    the question above is completely unrelated to the story about an inhumane treatment of a mother and the evil murder of her baby.

    why is it that nationalism on the part of the ignorant become more newsworthy than an actual achievement such as the docking of a space station?
    …..

    • dr_barefoot

      Then go elsewhere.
      This is not a news site btw, just a site that reports latest hot topics discussed on the Chinese internet.
      Go tell the majority of chinese netizens that “this is now newsworthy” maybe they’ll care.

    • Just passing through

      I would like to give it a shot at answering Roger’s question.

      The reason why this story is more ‘newsworthy’ is because even though it is an isolated incident, and blatantly wrong on so many levels, and that it’s condemned by the vast majority of Chinese people, it persists. It is happening, local government allowed it to happen, people believe that local government MADE it happen.

      Do you not see how extreme this story is? How far fetched? And you must realise the vast majority of China consist of these rural places. The MAJORITY of the Chinese population live in these rural places and are subject to the rules of local governments, not unlike the ones people associate with the forced abortion incident.

      I think the vast majority of westerners who read about these news stories are not laughing and pointing fingers at China, mocking the country for its backwardness, instead I believe they are sympathizing with the victims. Westerners want human rights for Chinese citizens more than Chinese people, because they know that only when the people are protected under basic human rights can the PEOPLE KEEP THEIR GOVERNMENT IN CHECK.

      Most people, normal people would feel empathy for the unfortunate family. People who are jaded enough and desensitized to such an extent to read about the incident, shrug, and make a remark about them being uneducated hillbillies, contribute to the problem and are the main reason why these incidents persist in modern China.

  • Roger

    bottom line. this is just some idiots who badmouthed a person that suffered under inhumane birth control policies.

    coverage of inhumane birth control is newsworthy

    nationalistic idiots that call others traitor for talking to foreign media is not news worthy

    • linette

      I am pretty sure you know these farmers are paid by the gov’t to harass the woman and her family. It’s not just bad mouth. Without the media attention and protection the woman and her family would be in jail by now being beaten to death. People died and disappear in rural areas in China, abused by China authority.
      This article is news worthy for China smack because it’s a follow up to what happened to this woman after being forced abortion at 7 months. Her sister took photos of her and her dead baby and posted on the internet causing massive reaction around the globe on internet. Now China gov’t is retaliating trying to hurt her and her family maybe trying to kill her. I strongly believe her life and her family are in great danger. The China gov’t will not end there. They will shut her up and punish her for exposing them. They need to use her to set example to the China people. Look what they did to Chen Guangcheng. This tells you the ugly truth about the China gov’t official.
      If you do not care about how China gov’t is running the country maybe you do not love China.

      • linette

        Roger

        ,,,,,,,,,,, which is that these people do not represent the vast majority of chinese………..

        You are missing the IMPORTANT ISSUE of this article. This article is not about a few crazy farmers calling a woman a traitor because she did an interview with foreigner. It’s about China gov’t's RETALIATION on people who expose them to the public. It’s a follow up to the other story. This is why we are so upset with the corruption of China gov’t.

      • Roger

        the government will never change. and i agree these people were hired by the government.

        however, sometimes chinasmack makes it look like all chinese people are xenophobic. but that isn’t the case at all.

          Digression: the interesting/unsettling thing about xenophobia/racism in China is that it is a tool so commonly used by the gvt (on TV or internet, dunno about print media) to rally people around in the great “one country one heart” nationalistic pride bs spirit.

            hess,

            Xenophobic happens everywhere. Yes, China also have many people who are xenophobic. It will get better as time change. Give them time. Don’t just blame China.

            I am sure there are TONS of racism against Asian people in your country too. If the Asian Causcasian married couples are living in your country, they will be mistreated too, probably even worst. Especially for the Asians. I do not want to live in your country. Like no way.

          • hess

            Yes. SWEDEN has TONS of racism towards Asians, grr do we hate those Asians! Going to Sweden, working, studying! God damn we hate them! There’s even a stereotype about Asians being hardworking, never fiddling with taxes. They got it just because we hate them so much.
            Sweden has 22% immigrants, a mixed race couple is nothing people notice, it’s just there.
            Good thing you would’nt want to live there, you wouldn’t fit in. You’re just too xenophobic (Xenophobia is defined as “an unreasonable fear or hatred of foreigners or strangers or of that which is foreign or strange.” Pretty sure you had no idea what it meant.)

            okay………

      the birth control policy is a necessary to control the population, the population keep growing and consuming the resources, the more people you have the more resources you consume, and the world simply could not cope with that.
      i think the birth control policy is a must in every developing country in the world.

      the problem with this case is not about the birth control policy but rather with the implementation of the policy, i too can say that the woman violated the law first by having the baby, then the official violated the law by aborting the 7 month fetus.

      as for the foreign media, we dont know what kind of news would they show, is it the real situation or would they blow it out of proportion, but nevertheless speaking to the foreign median does not make her a traitor either as she neither aware about the news nor watch the foreign media.

      • bendaxiong

        i see many two children families here in the Jing. I think that the second child should be taken out and shot regardless of their age or sex. Teach the parents a lesson.
        the basic point that the law is routinely violated and then other laws equally routinely violated when local govt wants to uphold first law. the whole thing then becomes a bad joke.
        So, maybe it should be amended to: take out and shoot all second children of CCP officials and CCP members, regardless of age.

        • wacky

          people can have 2 children if they can pay for it, if one of the children is foreign national (including hk and macau) or if the children are twin

            Hong Kong gov’t needs to ban all China people from coming in to give birth and obtain HK citizenships. HK gov’t should also revoke all hk citizenships given to those China children whose parents don’t reside or work in HK and pay tax.
            This way they will stop the China mothers from sending in tenths of thousand of kids to HK just to use the free education, healthcare,etc and not have to pay tax.
            They are draining the HK resources. Killing the HK people. It’s hard for HK people to start a family. Everything too expensive and not enough resources. There are only a bit less than 7 millions hk people on earth. These Cantonese are going to extinct.

            I have no problem anyone getting HK citizenships. But they must stay and reside in HK. Meaning even if they have to give up their own country citizenship and join HK. Would you want HK people to send tenths of thousands of HK kids to Switzerland and use your resources and not pay tax? NOt supporting your gov’t and your economy? What will happen to your country and your economy. Someone has to pay tax and work and support the gov’t you know. Not just drain it and abuse it.

            I had a raging arguement with my neighbours the other night. You’ll appreciate the dense living conditions here. Well this is a family from the mainland and they repeatedly keep their door open at all hours with about 10 of them in an apartment made for about two. The noise gets extreme. The building management have given up as they mainlanders ignore every request to keep to their own apartment and stop disturbing their neighbours. This particular night I went to talk to them myself. The response was ‘This is China!’ Apart from being slightly amused by the fact I thought for a moment I might be in the film 300 (and I was standing next to the elevator shaft on the 55th floor) overall I was saddened that the implication from those and other comments was that even as a tax paying resident contributing to the economy here, basically as a foreigner I have no rights. I’m pretty certain many mainlanders will hold the same attitude to Hong Kong people, after all you snuggled up to the colonialist dogs and betrayed your motherland to build one of the greatest cities on the planet. Good luck for the future of Hong Kong as we know/knew it.

      • Andao

        Anyone who is rich enough to pay the fee can have as many kids as they like. It’s a “rich people have many kids policy”, not a one child policy. Very appropriate for a communist country where, you know, the working classes rule.

        The birth control policy is NOT necessary to control the population. No other country in the world had to do this to achieve developed nation status. China is less densely populated than nearly every European country, so please do not try the “but there’s so many Chinese people!” argument.

        • wacky

          rich people can have many kids because theoretically can afford to raise the children.

          when the european rose to become developed country they were supported by resources from their former colony, today china does not have such situation, china is a large country but many large area like tibet are unpopulated and cant be populated. china has sacrificed a lot of its natural resources to achieve current economic condition, even today with the policy still about 6-7 millions baby are born in china every year.

          • Andao

            That’s a pretty disingenuous response. Just because some guy can’t pay 300,000 RMB to have a second child, doesn’t mean he can’t afford to support the child. With 300k a family could pay for everything a child needs for years and years. Instead they have to give it to the gov who does…what exactly with the money? Does anyone know where “extra baby” money goes?

            I’m extremely skeptical that colonies made average Europeans especially rich, or gave them the means to support big families. I think it is much more likely that women’s education and participation in the work force naturally reduced the birth rate, just the same as it has done in every country in the world.

        • linette

          It’s a “rich people can have many kids policy”, not a one child policy. ..

          This part I agreed.

        • wacky

          yes the law is weak but the law is law until it is changed people have to abide by it, whether it is a woman in the remote village or a government official. i am very much in favor of law supremacy and i think that the woman should be punished for having second child but the official too should be punished for aborting 7 month old fetus they should have done that early on the pregnancy
          i think if one can pay that much money show that they are ready and capable of rising the child.
          the woman we are talking about here obviously could not afford that much money. people too have a responsibility to monitor how government use the money after all corruption too is against the law.

          european came to asia to do trade, then tried to monopolize it then colonized the land this was the same pattern used everywhere, british get much from india, dutch from indonesia, the french from indochina etc. they got resources from asia and later made asia their market too.
          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_India_Company
          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dutch_East_India_Company

          and yes i think china today has an excess of population that the european did not have back then the problems of population today are different from those in the past. in the past developed country were the only major consumption of world resources today all the developing countries are emerging and started to consume more.
          in the past we did not have electricity now we do, energy consumption has never been this big, china which is still a developing country already consume in large quantity.
          in the past there were only 7 or 8 developed country then we have hongkong singapore south korea and taiwan, outside of this 4 small countries i have not seen any other country moving closer to reach a developed status, yet the rate of consumption is rising so is the population
          philippines population increases 3 times in 30 year
          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_the_Philippines#Philippine_census_surveys

          the number of birth in indonesia and vietnam show no significant changes
          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_Indonesia#List_of_Indonesian_provinces.27_population
          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_Vietnam#UN_estimates_of_births_and_deaths_.5B1.5D

          these countries are not going to become a developed country soon yet the birth rate is stable means they are going to consume more.
          usually the families with many children are poor family with no access to the family planing program

    People who are taught not to think will usually draw a blank when met with a moral situation such as this. All some people know how to do is blindly serve a power they see as selfishly looking out for the good of the masses. Don’t blame the idiots for not knowing how to be humane. Blame the power that forced the family to commit this act because they really had no choice. The people calling the girl and the family traitors don’t know better and they are just sheep. Its a tough situation when less than half of the population is civilized enough to ask questions and have a sense of right and wrong. Thats when things like ” the cultural revolution” happen.

  • Just passing through

    Seeing how nonchalantly people carried out this little mini parade, I would guess that this is a tactic that the rural government often employ to get rid of people they don’t like. Being called a traitor in China is equivalent to being called a Nazi in western countries, it evokes such strong negative feelings that it’s hard to defend your position because people are too busy hissing and booing.

    However I am very glad that with modern technology these incidents are captured digitally, and uploaded for everyone to see. If it weren’t for the internet, the vast majority of the more priviledge Chinese would not know that events such as these took place and the family planning officials would not be punished. I believe this is a step in the right direction, government officials should be held responsible for their actions and the first step is to let everyone know what exactly what atrocious deeds they’ve committed.

  • Hongjian

    I feel proud of my countrymen being actually so patriotic to raise such a protest for the sake of combatting “national traitors”.

    China, as it is today, is far better off when being driven by hate, chauvinism and unreasonable xenophobia, than being merely driven by nothing but plain materialism.

    I actually see this thing here as a huge success for China. Finally, Chinese people mobilized themselves for something other than just for the sake of getting something for free at the nearest supermarket.

    May China be a nation propelled by deep hatred of the western world. Every great empire needs a healthy dose of scorn at those who are standing in their way.

    China’s eternal problem was that they never hated anyone, not even their arch-enemies like the Mongols and Japanese, and were always swallowed by them since they lacked the resolve to resist coming from the lack of hate against the invaders, because the lack of a truely national, popular hate denied the entire empire to band together and resist foreign aggression. The lack of an unifying hate also propelled internal rot and corruption, which was the final nail in the coffin of every Chinese dynasty.
    But now, with China apparently having attained a feel of unifying nationalist hate against the west, which I hope will lead to the emergence of a siege-and-castle-mentality, the stability and ability of the Chinese nation and state to act for their interests will be assured, at least in this field.

    Nazi Germany also could only fight a vicious war against the whole world, because they were spirited and unified in their hate against the enemy of the Reich. China, up now, was never able to replicate that, due to their mentioned lack of such a unifying spirit.
    Now, with this spirit, at least on the small scale, in place I expect nothing less from the Chinese Reich but to replicate the power, the might and the legacy of the greatest empires in human history.

    If this poor mother and her seven month old child must be the sacrifice for national strenght through hate against the vicious enemies in the western world and for the rise of China as a dominant and independent power, it is a price that is just too cheap for not being paid.

      Are you trying to win your seat on the CCP or just an epic troll?

      • moop

        nah, hongjian is just one of the more consistant jokes on this site. back in kindergarten no one wanted to share their toys with the little red rocket and he’s taken it very personal. later in life as an awkward teen he was always picked last for soccer and the hate and resentment continued. as a young adult he joined the german military and recieved further ridicule because of the posters of tim mcveigh and the unibomber. one night, in a fit of furious masturbation to said posters, he was caught red handed by his brothers in arms and dishonorably discharged for being a twink and absolute failure

        • The Enlightened One

          LOL. That’s quite a sad story, sounds like a case of serial killer in the making due to self loathing and closet homosexuality.

          Judging by his post, he is just purely just trolling.

          Obviously, he used the quotation marks on “national traitors” on purpose (suggests they aren’t traitors) and using the term “unreasonable xenophobia.”

          This suggests he understands reason (because it is unreasonable) and would know that now he is being unreasonable with his post, which makes the whole thing contradictory. Basically, that means this post is a load of garbage and really means nothing.

          He is trolling dumb people who will flame and hate on him for something he doesn’t even really believe.

          Next troll please!

          • Hongjian

            Partly.

            But I meant no trolling or irony, since it is the spirit of these people I admire, even though they obviously picked on the wrong target.

            An aggressive and hateful spirit as theirs today, is something very rare to find in a society that is made of apathy and materialism.
            People like them, who are even ready to get off their asses from their comfy sofas made of said apathy and materialism to mobilize for a cause, no matter how wrong morally, is still better than having no spirit.
            Something so non-profit and materially unimportant as ‘national treason’, becoming a cause for conflict and effort from the Chinese people today? Doesnt this sound absolutely strange?

            But obviously, there are still people out there who care about stuff that has nothing to do with Audis, Luxury Houses, Gold-Bars and Maotai. There are people out there, who are actually concerned with such unprofitable matters as ‘treachery against the nation’.

            Call this unreasonable spirit of hate stupid, wicked and evil. But at least it is still a strong spirit, which is better than no spirit at all in a society that needs it the most.

            For that, I admire them very much.

          • anon

            Is it me or does this NOT actually sound like Hongjian?

            Only the faintest whisper of a somewhat profound point is in this (that its good when people mobilize for values or principles and not just for practical material interests). I’m accustomed to Hongjian making such a point in a more effective manner (that is also simultaneously much more infuriating to those who are foolish enough to take Hongjian at face value).

            Something isn’t right here. Or have I been away too long? It was just a week…

          • The Enlightened One

            Are you male or female?

            You are quite aggressive like a male but I read some posts that say you are a half-German, half-Chinese female.

            Is this true?

            If so, you may be way more warped than I intentionally thought.

            No, TEO, don’t fall for the Hongjian is a female trap!

        Its more an example of greed rather than your non profit rage against the west.

        Your dog is ugly.

        This race of dogs reminds me of what humankind did to the proud wolves they once were, capturing them, imprisoning them, put them under leashes, imbreeding them with the weakest and most teratist specimens of their race, torturing and mutilating them over and over, from one generation to another until becoming an unidentifiable meat-ball made of ugly, shaking, overlapping tissues of sadness and misery while only being capable of performing the doggish ritual of unquestioning loyalty. For they now are truely ‘dogs’ not wolves anymore. This process is what we call “to domesticate”.

        This same fate awaits those who stand against the hegemony of the western world. Those who are seeking to be an independent great power unfetted by western control over their fortunes and fate.
        This process of “domestication” is exactly what the US and their western lackeys seek to commit on China. They call that “to become a responsible, democratic and liberal stakeholder in the international system” – the same system they alone created WITHOUT the consent of those they seek to rule with it.

        Your ugly lump of meat and tissue you call “dog” cant help but be liberal, democratic and peaceful.
        But it will never be a wolf who is able to freely hate, freely scorn, freely kill and freely love whoever it wants. For this is true freedom, not the “freedom” of the domesticated animal.

        Call that nationalism, call that drivel, call that masturbatory fantasy.
        I still wish my nation and country to be the wolf. Not your ugly dog.

        • Patrick

          Who’s that blowhard scary bitch they had doing the news in North Korea? ‘Cause got to say you share an equal ability to delude yourselves. If the Chinese truly banded together they’d be ripping those government officials aka thugs apart.

          • Hongjian

            Fine with me.

            Even though I think that people’s rule in China will result to chaos and anarchy, I still hope this will be accomplished one day.
            But then, even with a democratic and liberal China, I stil hope that she will rip you fuckers some new anuses in your asses, if you continue to attempt to contol and contain her.

            Real freedom is great, but to those who are profiteering from oppression and control of a global scale, it is not: The Western world are the government officials aka thugs on the global level.
            And they have to be ripped apart along with those in China.

          • anon

            This sounds more like the Hongjian I know!

            “Your dog is ugly.”

            LOL.

        • moop

          when have the chinese ever been wolves? you ever looked at a chinese poll? its always like 90+% agreeing. if you want to start on this kind of racial shit, its sounds like chinese are more like sheep or cattle who have been stuck in a cattle car too long and are a little honery. dogs herd sheep and drive cattle. see how racists bullshit is bullshit?
          when they werent being defeated by outside invaders, they were fighting eachother. you are living in a fantasy world. nothing in chinese history or culture even leads a rational-thinking human being to believe your shit. you are not a wolf. you are a pussy behind a computer. no one takes you seriously. you and your ideas are a joke, literally. we joke about assholes like you on a regular basis.

          • Hongjian

            Chinese have never been wolves, and this is why I wish they should be wolves, beginning with hating and scorning. Easy as that.

            When people can actually have emotions which leads to acutal actions, they are at least a level above being sheeps and dogs.
            It would be nice if you are clever enough to deduce this yourself, instead of posting your nonsensical shit, were I have to explain something, so that an idiot like you could understand it.

            But it matters not. You are just an unintelligent failure, who should at least possess so much honour to relieve your poor pet from his suffering of being alive, both with you and being such an ugly, mutilated specimen.

            And if you are already in the process of doing so, do the world and humanity a favour and end yourself too. Thank you.

          • mr. wiener

            You forgot to say “kill all Americunts’ , but what the hey, it was a vintage rant. Welcome back Hongjian, long time no froth at the mouth :)

    • Roger

      No, we as chinese must never learn to hate. The reason we were so late in industrializing was due to xenophobia and feeling of superiority.

      We chinese need to be industrious, learn from all anything positive the western world has to offer. The western hemisphere can teach us much.

      You are right in that we have become much too materialistic. However, that is due to a century of abject poverty as well as disastrous policies under the cultural revolution under mao.

      We can be strong without being xenophobic and full of hate.

      • The Enlightened One

        That is quite true. But the Chinese really need to change in how they perceive “face”. I think is one of the greatest flaws of the Chinese people.

        It’s like “honor” except without code and only for yourself. It’s like never admitting you are wrong and never reflecting on mistakes. Once this “face” thing is removed (along with certain levels of corruption) and creativity is added into education, I think the Chinese people can surpass any nation in many areas.

        • Capt. WED

          what? Face is not about never admitting your are wrong. Well someone can do that, not admit wrong doing, for FEAR of losing face. But it’s not what face is about “never admiting wrong”. In face you can lose face and immeditely apologize for losing face. LOL.

          WHAT THE FUCK. THIS WEBSITE IS SO FUCKING STUPID AND RETARDED. I skim a little bit of the “convo” above… what the fuck. HAHA.

          FUck Chinasmack.

          • moop

            i think what he is trying to say is that face is very different from what most people view as “honor”. face is completely superficial. if i am alone and steal something i do not lose face. i only lose face if i am caught. it is external and superficial, even the concept’s name displays it as such. “honor” on the other hand can be both internal and exteral, public and private.

          • The Enlightened One

            I said it is like never admitting you are wrong or reflecting on mistakes for fear of losing “face”. “Face” can’t even really be deeply defined because it defies logic. I guess the greatest problem is FEAR of losing “face”.

            How many times have you gone to a supermarket and asked for something and if they didn’t know… or want to help… they say “Mei you”. Instead of finding someone else to help you and admit they don’t know, they fear losing face in front of co-workers and others and say they don’t have it.

            You walk over a few aisles and find it. It makes them look even stupider. But they would rather risk not losing face and appear incredibly stupid (which usually happens) rather than just doing the right thing. I think they should abolish this stupid “face” concept or evolve it similar to “honor”.

      You are right man! China is better off now………. even better off when all the people with brains emigrate abroad!

    @Moop I can’t reply to you,but I just wanted to say your assessment of the 30+ people here was awesome. I love a good rant, especially when i agree with it all.

    Welcome to China……the land of the fucked and the Fucked-up!

  • http://epukhk@yahoo.co.uk e peter

    The Authorities don’t see it, but to objective eyes, China is closer to becoming a land of a billion destitutes and immorals, and where there is just no hope for ordinary and good people……For the youth they already know that they’ve got to cheat, steal, lie and commit the unethical and the immoral to get better in life……it’s the only way. If things don’t change, and if Authorities don’t change, this will just continue to be the way of life and become the norm. We will all sit in our armchairs making comments on these kind of reports and after a while become numb to them. In fact we may already have………….Even having a good education is not going the save one from this predicament.

  • linette

    @moop, you are pissing me off. Why are you so rude and sarcastic to Roger? Roger sounds like a young Chinese lad with a few misunderstanding of the China gov’t. You need to help open his eyes and heart. You live in China don’t you? Chinese like Roger can go back to spread and preach human equality influencing other Chinese netizens on the China websites.

    And Roger is right about many negative and racist comments posted by Laowai here on Chinasmack. ummh…

    • hess

      Because he’s a fucking idiot perhaps?

      • anon

        To have the moral high ground, one needs to rise above it and not lower themselves to the other person’s level.

        • hess

          I don’t give a single crap about that

          • anon

            Yes, that’s clear, which is why you’re liable to make the rest of us look bad. However, I was more or less commenting in response to Linette about Roger and moop.

            Moop knows I think he could’ve dealt with Roger in a better, more effective way. I laid into Roger too in my responses, but I think moop just responded to Roger in kind and it ended up being a roll in the mud for the two. I know some people think moop “won” but I personally didn’t like how it unfolded. Roger proved himself to be a fucking idiot, but I don’t think moop really came out looking much better…and he could’ve came out of it clean.

            Of course, I know that may not be moop’s character (just like it may not be your character to give a single crap about rising above) but I’m just saying I would’ve preferred it.

      Just once, ONCE, I would like to hear a story involving China that ISN’T about yet another unmitigated cruelty. It’s really hard to defend China when everything coming out of the country makes out the Han to basically be the cruelest people on earth, worse even than the ignorant savages in Waziristan. I have yet to ever see a single story about one of these folks actually being kind to somebody who isn’t them.

      Somebody prove me wrong. PLEASE.

    l once asked a friend what the cheapest thing in china was ..with no hesitation he told me human life.Although he’s answer made my skin crawl literally ,curiosity led me to the next question.. why? The guy bumped a cigg and ask me for a light . His face lost all expression and he said ‘son,its the norm of any over populated society where people are so poor that the only thing the have is money’.There are people in this world that are not ruled by greed. And they are truly the good ones….
