According to the Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson, communist China knows “our leaders well,” perhaps even better than most Americans do.
Carlson on Friday informed viewers of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” about a term that the Chinese use to refer to America’s leaders.
“The Chinese know our leaders very well,” Carlson said. “In fact, they have a name for our self-hating class. They call them ‘baizuo’ — the rough translation of the mandarin is ‘white liberal’ and it is definitely not a compliment.”
Carlson went on to try to give viewers some idea about what the Chinese mean by this term. He did so using excerpts from Chinese state media.
Carlson quoted Chinese state media as describing baizuo as “people who only care about topics such as immigration, minorities, LGBT and the environment, who have no sense of real problems in the real world, who only advocate for peace and equality to satisfy their own feelings of moral superiority and who are so obsessed with political correctness that they tolerate backward Islamic values for the sake of multiculturalism.”
The Chinese state media writes, according to Carlson, that Baizuo’s political opinions are “so shallow that they tend to maintain social equality by embracing ideologies that run against the basic concept of equality.”
The Chinese state media also says that the baizuo are “phony and hypocritical and will make the situation in the West go from bad to worse.”
“Talk about insightful: they know our leaders well,” Carlson concluded. “So, whatever you think of the Chinese, they’re definitely not stupid. And, they’re on to something here.”
Indeed, they are!
This particular segment from Carlson came after the Biden administration this week held its first Washington-Beijing meeting on Thursday. What was most noticeable about the meeting was the decidedly more hostile tone that China took with the Biden administration, as compared to its previous dealings with the Trump administration.
During the meeting, Yang Jiechi, a member of the Chinese Communist Party’s Politburo, criticized America for alleged human rights abuses. He said:
In human rights, we hope that the United States will do better on human rights. … The challenges facing the United States in human rights are deep-seated. They did not just emerge over the past four years, such as Black Lives Matter. It did not come up only recently. So we do hope that for our two countries, it’s important that we manage our respective affairs well instead of deflecting the blame on somebody else in this world.
Yang also went after America for criticizing the Chinese’s invasion of other countries when it has done the same thing.
Based on Carlson’s segment, it appears that the Chinese know their enemy well. And, from this meeting, it appears that China believes this is the approach that will bring success against the Biden administration.
