Scholar: The CCP used it to incite national sentiment

In February of this year, Chinese director Zhao Ting won the 78th Golden Globe Awards for Best Director and the 93rd Academy Awards for Best Director for “A Place Without a Back”. She is the first Asian woman to win the Golden Globe Award.

At the beginning, CCTV and other CCP official media once praised Zhao Ting as “the pride of China.” Later, some mainland netizens discovered that Zhao Ting’s previous two controversial statements had been picked up and accused him of “humiliating China.” Since then, Zhao Ting has been continuously blocked by the Chinese Communist Party. In April this year, on the day of the 93rd Academy Awards, Zhao Ting’s award and other Oscar information were deleted and blocked on a large scale in mainland China.

Previously, the media listed the top ten “humiliating China” events in the first half of 2021, and Zhao Ting was ranked tenth, in addition to Marvel’s first Chinese superhero movie “Shang Qi”, as well as international brands such as H&M Group, Nike and Adidas.

“On the one hand, the CCP hopes to use this incited mass movement to show the illusion that it is still supported and supported by some people in the country. It is actually a manifestation of the CCP’s guilty conscience.”

“In addition, the CCP hopes to use this kind of mass movement to beat those foreign businessmen or entertainers who do business in China, to succumb to the CCP, or to become the CCP’s platform on international issues.”

Li Yuanhua believes, “These so-called insults to China reflect that the CCP’s spirit is particularly fragile. Because the CCP virus (Wuhan virus, New Coronavirus) has spread to the world, countries around the world have become more and more aware of the nature of the CCP. The CCP knows that it is here. The image that has cost a lot of money to build internationally has collapsed.”
