From China.com BBS:
“Along the River During the Qingming Festival” (清明上河图) is a famous Chinese painting that is originally from the 12th century and has been repainted many times throughout history. The above picture is a part of the 18th century painting that is in Taiwan:
“Chengguan” (城管, city managers) are low level “government officials” who are responsible for maintaining city laws and rules, such as those that forbid people to “baitan” (摆摊, set up a place on public street to sell things illegally] because they do not have business license or permit and affect the street environment. Many Chinese people dislike city managers because they often abuse their power.

Lou zhu, I often see this kind of phenomenon here, truly picturesque.
Strongly support, send to Afghanistan.
Return to the people a clean clean clean world!
This is too niu, hilarious!
You are too talented!
City managers ==== Satan!
The emergency of the city manager troops, is simply a ruthless parody of those in power.
Where did they come from? Where are they going?
City managers and forced evictions have created the two worst aspects of this harmonious society!
Classic!!! City managers = living brigands.
Comments from Sina:
Too talented, if the city managers came today, the feeling is very much like devils [the Japanese] entering the city, and city managers have already become like the devils. These days everyone is promoting becoming more civilized, yet when can they be civilized in enforcing the law? Or change their bad habits of violence and robbery?
Is this not a kind of tragedy!
Today’s city managers…
Haha, the city managers are coming, hurry and run!!!
I hope that one day the lou zhu will post this topic again! Only that the two pictures are reversed!
Am I dreaming?
Give me 3000 city managers and I can annihilate Taiwan!!
City managers are only the hand that hits the people, and it is the hand that manipulates the people that is most deserving of being condemned…
City managers, fucking nine out of ten are bastards, and the remaining one is an idiot!!!
Pretty creative, and if you think about it, it is true. If there were city managers at that time, how would “Along the River During Qingming Festival” have been painted?
Playing a prank with a famous painting that was handed down, you should be careful.
If you do not let those people “baitan” [set up on the streets to sell things illegally], how are they going to eat? Stripping others of their right to make a living for a little improvement to the city’s so-called appearance? It would be strange to not condemn the city managers. If they had money, were not worried about having enough to eat, only ghosts would go “baitan” [set up on the streets to sell things illegally]!
Do you think city managers are necessary?
