What the Leftist SJW Culture Have in Common with Communist Chinese CultureDec 09, 2021 | 🚀 Fathership AI
Some might say “Do you really need an essay to state the obvious?” Part of me would even agree that is unfair to compare the American Left to Communist China’s culture because the Communist Chinese society is still far worse than anything that most of us in the free West can understand.
But America (and everyone in the free world) must be vigilant and pay attention to the movement that is currently unfolding in Hong Kong. Their protest against Beijing’s tyranny will set the course for the future of freedom.
The Hong Kongers’ fight against Beijing’s tyranny is a symbolic parallel of our own struggle to protect our own freedom and liberty here in America.
Putting aside China’s thirst of usurping America as the global superpower, we should also take note of the similarities that the Chinese Communist culture share with the American Social Justice Left.
Listed below are some of the resemblance the American Far-Left shares with today’s Chinese Communist culture.
No room for dissent or differing opinionsThe American Left is notorious for their intolerance concerning differences of opinions. The same trend is observed in China today.
Chinese citizens, brainwashed by the communist government, demonstrates utter intolerance to the Hong Kongers right to protest. Threats of violence and force are called upon to secure the complete crackdown on the people of Hong Kongers.

Conservative voices and opinions are often silenced with threats of violence. Dissenting voices and opinions are not tolerated because it opposes their political hegemony.
The Chinese government does not trust its own citizens to make their own judgment, just like the Socialist Left in America.
China has a cancel culture — the SJW left is the sameIf you keep up with Chinese news, there’s an interesting story about the Chinese government’s effort to “cancel” the online history of a Chinese MMA fighter.
Why? Well, because he consistently challenges and successfully defeats Kung Fu and Tai Chi masters with his MMA style of combat. For this sin against the “Chinese national morale”, he is to be erased from the internet.
The irony of this is how Xu Xiaodong (the MMA fighter in question), is a patriotic Chinese citizen who loves China and supports the Communist Party. However, none of that mattered to the Chinese Government because he is merely a tool in the CCP’s grand scheme of tyranny.

The Mobilization of children for propaganda purposesXu Xiaodong was “canceled” by the Chinese authorities because he was deemed to be a bad influence on the youth in China. This is unsurprising since the Chinese regime must monopolize and control the thoughts of their subjects, especially the young.
The Communist Party view the young as nothing more than tools they can use to implement the regime’s agenda. Children are constantly used as a resource to brainwash the masses.
Take for example last year’s arrest of Huawei’s CFO in Canada. Chinese state media released a video of children singing praises for Huawei in retaliation as an effort to garner public support for Huawei.
It’s hard to ignore how this mobilization of children by the Chinese Communist Party is eerily similar to how the left utilizes Greta Thunberg to push their climate change agenda….
Communist are great at exploiting children for propaganda purposes
China is obsessed with class — as is the leftWhile we are on the topic of children, take note on another aspect of how the American SJW Left and their Chinese Communist comrades share a kinship when it comes to the matter of offsprings.
Despite Mao’s initiative to eliminate all class distinction during his Cultural Revolution, Chinese society is still obsessed with judging people based on their personal wealth.

Notice how the left also judges' children by their parent’s status. Children with successful parents are labeled as being guilty of “privilege” while children from the lower socio-economic rungs are thought to be doomed for a life of oppression.

Rather, the class a person is born into determines their identity. “Intersectionality” is quite simply the Millenial Era re-branding of Marxist class theory. Original article appeared on Medium.
