Chinese Premier Wen and The Cultural Revolution

27 March 2012
 

The above shows the result of a poll conducted by an ultra right wing Chinese web site that is pro-Premier Wen and anti-Bo Xilai. The question asks if the viewers like the Cultural Revolution. Two thirds said yes.

Why is that?

The following microblog message may offer a clue to the answer:

鲁国平先生:一出租司机对梁x声说,现在的社会太糟了,不如回到从前。梁问他:你知道60年饿死多少人吗?知道文革整死多少人吗?司机答,不过整了你们这样的知识分子。梁x声说“我当时浑身发冷。在政协拍桌子争取来的那些权利,结果是为了这样的人,心里真想骂娘。

@Lu Guopin: A taxi driver told Liang xx (Liang xx is a novelist and likes to think himself as an intellectual elite), today's society is too dark, and I'd rather to go back to the earlier years. Liang asked him: Do you know how many people suffered even died during the Cultural Revolution? The driver replied: So? All those suffered were the intellectuals like you.

What Chinese Say

About "intellectual elite" Liang's anger over the cab driver's reply:

龙神帝国万岁

在政协拍桌子争取来的那些权利,结果是为了这样的人——说反了吧,拍桌子争的那些权利,可是实打实地为自己啊,至少为自己争取了话语权吧?文科生就别把自己装得那么高尚无私,大家也不是傻瓜!

个臭老九真是自以为是,应该说,不服啊上井冈山啊,这样多霸气~

有些人以为别人不会思考,只会反思

Chinese Premier Wen is known to hate Cultural Revolution's guts, but he is in fact, as exposed recently, an active Cultural Revolutionist. During the years 1968 - 1978, Wen, a humble technician, was promoted to the position of political cadre and then became the political chief of the Geomechanics Team at the Bureau of Geology in Gansu Province.

What was his political rival Bo Xilai doing in those years? Bo's mother died at the hands of some violent Cultural Revolutionists from the geology industry, his father was locked behind bars for nine years and he himself spent five years at a detention centre for being the child of the guilty parents.

Ironically, a Cultural Revolutionist now accused the victim of bringing back the Cultural Revolution.

We certainly do not wish to see the repeat of the Revolution, which was riddled with many flaws right from the beginning, derailed during the process and failed miserably at the end, although it does have many merits. Yet while the remnants of the Cultural Revolution like Wen keep oppressing ordinary people's rights to survive and to express for the interest of their associates at home and abroad, judging by what the poll shows, the occurrence of another Cultural Revolution might not be entirely impossible.

What Chinese Say

中国很多文人可以很无耻

In the eye of Chinese general populations, many China's so-called public intellectuals (including paid US collaborator Mao Yushi and US agent He Weifang) are as filthy as public toilet:

冻章鱼

大陆著名异议分子贺卫方: 总理是非常真诚的政改推动者,至于怎么改,"天机不可泄漏".

China's well known dissident He Weifang (this guy is in US special protection list according to Wikileaks): Premier Wen is very sincere in pushing through China's political reform, as for his agenda, I don't think it shall be revealed to public.

慕士塔格

全世界哪里有和国家总理穿一条裤子的“异议人士”??

It is only in China where dissidents stand by the premier.

九头鸟

神棍啊——天机不可泄露。

They must be black magicians so their tricks cannot be exposed.

胖虎

是不敢泄露吧.

My guess they have no guts to reveal their real agenda.

Chinese Intellectuals Lost It's Brian and Spine Since Manchu's Rule:

The so-called scholars of Qing Dynasty were on the whole just a bunch of smart ass with little wisdom, a group of crafty pettifoggers with no real skills, a collections of spin doctors with no principles. They were willing to serve anybody who was rich and powerful and could pay them with fame and wealth, regardless who they were and if they were for or against Chinese interest: be they Manchus, Japanese, or other China-destroyer aliens.
