This video pretty much sums up the attitudes of some of the “traitors” being called out by the “patriots”. The latter often doesn’t distinguish between country and government. Sometimes, they don’t even distinguish between being Chinese national and being ethnic Chinese.
One of the biggest reasons for the positive image of this regime is its grand presentation that hides the ugly substance. Even if only the minority are wronged, it still runs into the millions. Rocky is unfortunately one of them and the “beauty” of it is, the majority don’t care.
Rocky speaks from the POV of the downtrodden folks in the countryside. But let’s not be naive. While it’s a fact that they are being bullied by the authoritarian government, the country folks are not angels either. Just take a look at Xiao Cui’s video below.
