Praising/ass kissing [the County Party Secretary] as if he was Mao Zedong, shameless.

腾讯拉萨市网友:

Don’t hit everyone with the same stick. Though there are innumerable bad people, there are many good people too.
When a government official doesn’t work for the people, it would be better for him to go home and sell sweet potatoes. This is referring to government officials. There are many garbage officials, but there are also good ones too, it’s just that we don’t know [who they are]. Don’t dismiss them all.

腾讯广州市网友:

Haha, this Party Secretary is about to suffer misfortune. Him as a low level official creating a personality cult! This is something the higher levels of leadership do not allow. Just wait and see.

腾讯兰州市网友:

A big fatty, how is he like the quintessential county government official who becomes thin from working hard for the people?

腾讯赣州市网友:

Why isn’t it allowed to believe that there are good leaders?

腾讯网友:

This isn’t one person’s feelings, it is the feelings of many of us ordinary common people in Zhangbei county. After Party Secretary Li arrived, a lot of things changed, so much that they can’t be listed. Have you been to Zhangbei? Do you know anything about Zhangbei? You don’t know anything, so please don’t randomly speculate, people must take responsibility for their words and actions. With regards to this matter, I have more right to talk than you, thank you!

腾讯网友:

Looks like China’s leadership/government officials are huge failures! Such failures that even if one clearly knows that they have been wronged, there is still no one who will stand forth to defend them!

腾讯网友:

Truly good officials would not be promoted like so. Because they are unable to give those above them money. If you don’t kiss ass, how can you be promoted?

腾讯广州市网友:

A big head, thick neck, that meaty body, how could he be so fat if it isn’t from eating so much [suggesting corruption].

腾讯唐山市网友:

Let’s just laugh. Give him some face.

腾讯安徽省网友:

Such an excellent post and there is no one commenting?
Looks like everyone is really disappointed in their hearts.
Even if [a good government official] like this appeared, netizens’ still would not be moved.

腾讯成都市网友:

It’s not that everyone feels there is something wrong with the lyrics, but rather that in our country, such a good Party Secretary is basically passing clouds.
