Foreign Embassies Holding Charity Fundraiser for Chinese Handicapped Children Received 5,000 Yuan in Counterfeit Money

Yesterday [December 9th], foreign embassies in Guangzhou held a charity fundraiser to help China’s handicapped children and collectively raised 330,000 RMB. However, someone unbelievably took advantage of the foreign consuls’ inability to identify Chinese counterfeit money and spent 5,000 yuan of fake money to purchase items at the charity sale. The counterfeit money was discovered when the donation were collected and countered by the Federation of Handicapped People, all of them being brand new, sequentially-numbered 100 yuan bills, and the Consulate General of Korea alone received 800 yuan in counterfeit money. Reporter “SSer-潇湘子” of Yangcheng Evening News said that she personally witnessed the disappointed look on the face of the Consul General of Chile.

A nation lacking in virtues/morality, there isn’t another country like this in the world. I feel so embarrassed.

To condemn Chinese people before an investigation is conducted is unfair! It’s true that many Chinese people are fucked-up, but about the counterfeit money, it could indeed have been done by Chinese people, but it could also have been intentionally done by foreigners (theoretically speaking). Be a little more rational.

Giving counterfeit money was good enough as it is. If that beauty wearing the horned cap offers her body for sale, I can consider using real money. Right, would you sleep with me for 2 mao [20 cents RMB]?

I think only by relying on Russia can China be victorious. During World War II, if it weren’t for Soviet Russia fighting Japan, could China have been victorious??? From a historical perspective, only Russia has treated us with honesty and sincerity. From aiding us with the technology to build atom bombs to experts of various fields (railway, bridge, and military), they helped us sincerely all the way, they are our lighthouse, and it can be said: Without Russia, there would be no place for the Chinese people to exist. To the north of our country, there is a close friend—Russia, like the Great Wall, firmly guarding our nation and our country, unbreakable, dependable. So I hope everyone can strike down those people who try to sow discord in the China-Russia relationship, to hell with them. I love you, great Russia. Russia is not only China’s hope, but also the world’s hope! Humanity’s hope!!! Long live the friendship between China and Russia!

Former Deputy Chief of State Statistics Bureau: Foreigners Holding Charity Fundraiser in China are Shameless

@贺铿: Poor but proud, this is my philosophy. People can go ask the China Disabled Persons’ Federation how much money they collect each year and how much money the Chinese government spends aiding disabled people each year. It’s okay for foreigners to hold charity fundraisers, but please go back to your own countries to raise money, go back to your own countries to hold charity sales, as this would be a net inflow, and thus real charity. But to hold a charity sale in China is definitely a fake philanthropic act. We Chinese ourselves have philanthropic acts such as charity sales and charity performances, and even though there are both real ones and fake ones, I’m not against them, as we can deal with them all by ourselves.

@贺铿: Frankly, for foreign embassies to do something like this, their intention is simply to embarrass Chinese people! Is China desperately in need of that 330,000 yuan? What more, that 330,000 yuan was the money of Chinese people anyway! I think the real shameless ones are those who held the “charity sale”!

Sitting on the sofa of such a hot piece of news. I think the real shameless bastard is you, taking from the people, eating from the people, yet doing fake statistics!

Yes, not short of money, which one of you guys [government officials] isn’t a billionaire?

我行我溯 [网易四川省成都市手机网友]:

Once upon a time, there was a family slave who was a despot in the house because his master’s family were old and weak women and children. A next door neighbor couldn’t stand it anymore and took some clothes to give to this family, but the slave was pissed and jumped out cursing the next door neighbor for meddling and causing embarrassment to his masters.

gorden2000 [网易四川省成都市网友]: (responding to above)

How is it that certain people like to use metaphors/analogies, as if they were very clever, yet don’t see that these clothes were actually stolen from the very family they were given to! Stop blindly using metaphors! What if it was certain countries framing us? Could it be a possibility? Since they have the heart to hold a charity sale, and the things they were selling were worthless junk anyway, was it necessary for our people to buy them using fake money? And the money they raised was from our people anyway! Why didn’t they hold the charity sale in their own countries? Fuck!

5毛de老祖宗 [网易天津市网友]:

Leader [government official], don’t come out and embarrass yourself.

Hehe, what can I say to you?
Nothing, everybody knows in their hears what this is.
In short,
So embarrassing.

If I may offer a word of advice, young people, don’t lose your cool so easily and shout abuses, as it’s easy for you to fall into the traps of enemies who have evil intentions. Right now is a key point in the progress and development of our country, and you guys should seize this opportunity to enrich and arm yourselves, to contribute your heart and body to the country [contribute to the betterment of the country]! Instead of having us old men step out to wearily and painstakingly lecture and give advice!

Salute to Chief He. Nowadays young people are too impetuous. You are a role model for our generation!

Lu Xun
I think it would be even more appropriate if Lu Xun were to live today.

If Lu Xun were living in the present, the most probable results would be: under surveillance, locked up in an asylum, undergoing reeducation through labor, disappeared, or emigrated abroad.
