Playing All The Wrong Keys

In the beginning, it was really not so sinister. Dr K and the lady were happily dancing and swaying to the tune played by the Chinese man. It was so natural and spontaneous. That ought to be the real them and all this took place before the arrival of 刘梦莹 and Christine Lee 李贞驹. These two were apparently there to direct and supervise the patriotic video shoot; Chinese people living in England but their hearts are still with the motherland. Unlike that impromptu segment, these “performances” have to be properly staged and scripted.

The problem with these “patriotic” video clips (often shown on the Chinese New Year variety show 春晚) is that they must exclude all “foreign interference” in order to look genuine. That’s why they had to give a lame excuse for Dr K not to show their faces in his videos – for fear that people from the mainland may “leak” them and question their patriotism. Apart from these greetings from overseas, 春晚 also broadcasts greetings from workers on some massive infrastructural project, soldiers guarding outposts at China’s frontiers. That’s pretty much what it’s all about and of course, “foreign interference” is strictly prohibited.

The whole gang takes the cue from Christine Lee. She’s not happy with Dr K not being cooperative and the piano-playing guy had to bare his warrior wolf fangs to show his patriotism.

In the following video, Jiang Feng digs a bit deeper into Christine Lee, 李贞驹 background. It’s unbelievable how Britain has carelessly and naively allowed forces that threaten its freedom and democracy to infiltrate its society. It’s monumentally stupid to protect the freedom of people who want to destroy you.
