The Chinese - not a great bunch of lads

Quite sure it said his hovercraft was full of eels.....oh well..
 
What an ignorant hooer. Me, me, me!
Sadly, the ranks of the nouveaux riches are full of her type. One small consolation is that they usually come to our attention because of the fury they provoke on the Chinese internet.

I take it the Chinese man-in-the-street regards them as ill mannered ?

Probably emulsified Panda poo.
If they could, they'd probably dip them in the tears of mummy mouse.
How desperate have you got to be to consider eating that, in that way and how perverted have you got to be, to consider that a novelty delicacy when you're not desperate?
Reminds me of the French!

A:D for the pop at the frogs.

As complete and utter cunts would be a good assessment. There are entire subforums on the popular bulletin board devoted to naming and shaming the 富二代 (second generation wealthy) for their excesses.

It's actually proved fertile hunting ground for the Party Discipline Inspection Commissions. If some local official's kid is cutting about in a Porsche shouting, "Do you know who my father is?", chances are his finances deserve a closer look.
 
I'd heard of similar things going on in Africa, but not in Asia.

'The view while flying over Cambodia from the inland tourist mecca of Siem Reap to the coast is jarring: The national forests that once held Asian tigers, elephants, leopards, bears and other endangered species have been replaced by scarred, deforested industrial landscapes. And where was the beach paradise I was expecting when I landed? Cambodian coastal cities like Sihanoukville and Kampot may have made The New York Times’ “52 Places to Go” list, but for people who have actually made the trek, it’s a depressing destination strewn with garbage and overrun with construction. “It’s awful,” Australian tourist Andrew Walker told me. He’d visited Sihanoukville a decade ago and was so taken with it he brought his girlfriend back for a holiday. “But it’s all gone now – just a bunch of casinos, whorehouses and hotels.”

'He’d quickly escaped to Kep, the former St Tropez of southeast Asia, where historic art deco homes are being demolished in favour of new-style mansions — but still has some sort of tranquillity left. Much of the demolition is coming via Chinese “investment”. Since 1994, China has injected $26.5 billion into Cambodia – much of which has not trickled down to Cambodians – and locals say the business-friendly term is a euphemism for “China buying us”, a local taxi driver told me. In fact, the “investment” has been the cause of massive displacement and evictions for locals, according to a CNN report.'


 
I realise this is from PETA, but rumours have been floating around for years, and this does seem in line both with them and the current reaction to Coronavirus.

'Comments made by a Chinese expert for infectious disease has increased the suffering of animals in China. Li Lanjuan, a member of the senior expert team from China's National Health Commission, had stated that animals exposed to COVID-19 patients would need to be quarantined. The World Health Organisation rubbished the claims, stating that there was no evidence of animals catching the virus. Government bodies have started to go door to door to kill pet dogs and cats.

'Nanchong Missing Animal Aid Group shared a distressing video which showed the horrific number of pets culled by officials. Posting a video of the cruel campaign, the animal rescue group claimed that the drive was organised by the Communist Party Secretary of Longcan Town. The video showed the back of a truck stacked with bloodied corpses of dogs.

'Another video posted on Weibo by an animal rights activist shows a masked officer touching a dog's corpse to check if it was dead. It is claimed that the officers went door to door and gathered all the dogs. They then proceeded to kill all of the pets.

'Animal rights activists sent videos of stray dogs being beaten to death to the Daily Mail. The pet killing campaigns have been going on all over China, with reports of similar incidents coming from Chengdu and Wenzhou as well.'

It's sadly true that rural folk still believe proximity to animals increases the risk of disease, regardless of how unlikely it is that the animals in question have been exposed. Chinese animal charities have been trying to work to overturn this for years, but folkways are remarkably persistent.

Stray dogs are regularly culled, not just for disease control but also because large packs of them roam the countryside and attack livestock, children and the odd isolated adult. Think Op Muttley writ large.

Watching an old Anthony Bourdain show from when he was in Hong Kong. Quite a few disgusting facts about the Chinese came up.

Hong Kong exports it's sewage to China, which they use to fertilise their crops
Chinese find it rude if you use chopsticks to play drums with during meal, or have them stick vertically through a pile of rice, yet the Chinese will spit during a meal

That is all

Thais find it rude if you pat someone on the head or point your feet at them.

'Rudeness' is purely a function of where you grew up.

It's purely subjective.

That is all.
 
Don't criticise the regime, 'cos it's much bigger than you.

'Aussie swimming champion Mack Horton has received death treats on social media after a bombshell anti-doping verdict banned bitter rival Sun Yang for eight years.

'The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on Friday night (AEDT) accepted an appeal from the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) against a decision by swimming body FINA to clear Sun of wrongdoing for his conduct during a 2018 drugs test. The CAS said the eight-year ban was imposed because Sun already had an earlier anti-doping rule violation against him from 2014.

'Despite the verdict, a defiant Sun has vowed to appeal and fight to save his career. China’s top swimmer declared the CAS verdict was “unfair” and his supporters echoed his beliefs in a series of trolling attacks on Horton’s social media pages. Fans, writing in English and Chinese characters, issued strange death threats to Horton.'


 
PRC is moving Uighur detainees out of 're-education' camps and into factories supplying brands such as Apple, BMW, Gap, Huawei, Nike, Samsung, Sony and Volkswagen. PRC denies allegations of forced labour.
