Imperial Leader Joe Biden has been working hard to cozy up to Xi Jinping so it’s only a matter of time before the new and improved Chinese snitch line comes to greater North America.
Snitch on dissenters
Reuters just got their hands on a bulletin put out by the Cyberspace Administration of China dated April 9 that describes all the details of their new and improved snitch hotline. Citizens can now conveniently report people who annoy them on social media for such crimes as criticizing the Chinese Communist Party.
The CAC wants all good party members to turn in anyone who tries to “distort” the CCP’s history.” The timing happens to line up with the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre.
Other things that the CCP wants you to snitch on are those who defame national heroes and “deny the excellence of advanced socialist culture.”
Some, heavy-handed authorities say, “with ulterior motives have been spreading historical nihilistic misrepresentations online, maliciously distorting, denigrating and negating the history of the Party.”
Along with the phone-in snitch line, Chinese loyalists can get their friends and neighbors sent to prison using the CAC’s official app or its website.
“We hope that the majority of Internet users will actively play their part in supervising society and enthusiastically report harmful information.” If not, someone will report them.
A patriotic duty
Reuters explains that China “has used the term ‘historical nihilism’ to describe activities and comments that spread public doubt about the Chinese Communist Party’s descriptions of historical events.”
Everybody knows how heavily China censors “and closely guards its online spaces against most foreign news outlets, social media apps and search engines.” Every citizen is expected to snitch as their patriotic duty.
Earlier this year, Xi Jinping announced that the citizens will be jailed for up to three years for each incidence of insulting, slandering or infringing upon the memory of historic Chinese national heroes.
People in China have become extremely polite because annoying someone could result in a snitch report.
Any website that doesn’t censor forbidden comments will get their plug pulled. Not only do “Chinese social media sites that fail to censor critical content” watch their services get temporarily suspended along “with other financial sanctions.” The new snitch line is going operational just in time for the “100th anniversary of the ruling communist party’s founding in July.”
Not only that, “it also comes ahead of the 32nd anniversary of the June 4, 1989, Tiananmen Square Massacre, in which Chinese troops and tanks violently cleared out protesters occupying the Tiananmen Square in Beijing.” The official death toll is 200. The Red Cross puts it at closer to 2,600. You can be sure the lower number will be the one everyone is using.
