There was never a top leader like Xi Jinping deserted by
Chinese public in such a short time span (less than a year)
to power in the 64-years of history of the People's Republic
of China. He and his team obviously know this dismal fact,
which is why the most stringent than ever online censorship
measure has been introduced even though it only fuels more
blatant offline criticisms that they have no control over,
which is why he constantly demands the army officers to confirm
their exclusive allegiance to him as if an emotionally insecure
woman in panic and despair, and which is why when witnessing
helplessly how the support
for Bo Xilai keeps growing despite he is locked behind
bars while his own reputation is down in the gutter, his spin
doctors launched a new round smear campaign against his
biggest political threat.
And the outcome of the campaign
of the personal attack on Bo Xilai before the
Party's annual meeting, known as the third plenum of
the 18th CCP central committee?
There is no surprise - the public backlash is swift and
forceful. How could anyone ever expect the otherwise?
Unless of course he has the same low level of emotional intelligence
and the same high
level of willful arrogance like
Here are some typical online responses to
the latest anti-Bo Xilai campaign:
- If Bo Xilai is a bad guy, then there is
no good guy left in the CCP, including Xi Jinping
- The authority says the
officials must draw lesson from Bo Xilai's mistakes. Yes, all
Chinese officials should have realised by now if they do
not place Xi Jinping's personal interest ahead of Chinese
people, he will be charged for corruption and punished accordingly.
- How brave for the authority to say the
persecution of Bo Xilai "won wide support from Party
members and Chinese public"? If they indeed believe
their own claim, why they are so afraid to let people comment
on the news?
- Xi Jinping behaves exactly like Chiang
Kai-shek: talking about justice while persecuting his opponents.
- Bo Xilai's crime is of failing to declare
his exclusive loyalty to Xi Jinping like what a mafia member
would do to the newly appointed godfather.
- Now I'm enlightened about the final truth:
whether you are corrupted or not all depends on if you are
loyal to Xi Jinping.
- An old man in my village said after watching
the trial of Bo Xilai: He worked so hard for thirty years
and only allegedly collected 5 million yuans that not even
in his pockets. What kind of idiot he must be! He took the
risk of getting a capital punishment to let someone's girlfriend
own a house overseas, and that someone is not even his friend.
Can you find a corrupt official who is so stupid? Whose intelligence
the authority and the Jinan judges are insulting? The corrupt
officials or the authority and the judges themselves?
Besides, is it
a huge crime for a man to slap the face of a subordinate
who broke the law and insulted his wife? Xi Jinping and
his men have ruthlessly interrogated Bo Xilai that caused
him to pass out for 27 times, if Bo Xilai received a life
sentence for slapping an official, should Xi Jinping, Wen
Jiabao, Li Keqiang, Wang Yang and Wang
Qishan all receive a death penalty for
psychologically tortured an official into coma? And should
their wives also get a death sentence for the death of
whoever [Mind, former premier
Wen Jiabao and his wife Zhang Peili have already been implicated
in several suspicious deaths - Multipletext]?
And should their daughters also be called back from
the United States to answer the questions related to their
study expenses? [A well evidenced
allegations regarding former
Agricultural Minister Sun Zhengcai's son have already
become public knowledge in China]
- Whatever the authority says, the slides will never become
a real house! How can you suppose to charge anyone for none
- Look at who is eagerly participating the
anti-Bo Xilai campaign: the government of Shaaxi, Xi Jinping's
home province, headed by a man from Anhui, Li Keqiang and
Wang Yang's townsman. Would you still think this is not a
mafia style persecution?
- From now on I would challenge anyone to
a duel if he keeps telling me Xi Jinping trying to
protect Bo Xilai. Because I hate liars.
- There are so many questions raised by public
over both the trials of Bo Xilai and his wife, why
we heard no explanation whatsoever from the authority?
- Chinese officials now have learned they
must not provide the school children with free daily milk;
they must not help the unemployed and low income earners
to get an affordable accommodation; they must not make government
sponsored television programs free of ads; and they must
US business such as Walmart when they break
Chinese laws and hurt local consumers' interest.
- In short, Xi Jinping government will not
allow its officials to serve the people since their only
duty is to serve their boss Xi Jinping.
- In fact, I quite like such smear campaign
as it can keep the pro-Bo Xilai movement in momentum.
- Keep performing, you pack of swindlers.
- Xi Jinping is still not realising he's
doomed and his end is near.
