I'm not trying to attack you, I'm just trying to understand where it comes from.

First you would have to explain what  ........

"It" .........

Is ........

I mean you talk in conundrums about hate and fear ........

As if I have this  ........

Of course it could just be your psychology certificate talking for you ......

On the other hand, there are topics such as religions or jews, I totally have no idea about them. So I can not make any comment.  Sorry.


Thank you for replying.  No, it doesn't seem like the real chinese here even frequent those threads.

I read them.  And it looks like they may be trying to make china out to be some crazy racist hate country....I don't know.  But it seems very far off from the image I have of chinese and the ones I have met personally.

Timbatu is kind of another case.....he constantly goes on about american issues of free speech and human rights.  Trying to play such a victim.  But I don't see any chinese people commenting on his threads.  But he is playing himself off as this big patriot.

It's just odd as revolunar says.  Very odd.

Your hatred for the west of course.

That is where you were born and raised.  Was it guilt?

I have to say that I have experienced 'white guilt' and that had been a strong motivator for me in the past to rail about US foreign policy and so forth.

So, I'm just curious.

Well I think that is a legitimate gripe, but it still doesn't address the question.

I'm talking a ...
I'm talking about fake patriots that are trying to foster hate and fear between china and the west.



Umm ...... !

So .......

You didn't find a mixture of 'all sorts' when you were with Pravda  .........  ?

I find that hard to believe  .......

I did.  But they were pretending to be russian patriots or slavophiles.

My thought was that these were the offspring of the white russians or the nazi collaborators that made their escape to the US.

I know one in particular was the product of a russian family in exile in the US.  She openly stated many times that she wished the germans had won wwII.  

Her hatred for jews was stronger than her love for russia...obviously.

But now that I've been here...I can't use the same theory so my theory is of course flawed.

Yes .........

Trying to understand all the multiplicities of ideas and ideals is perhaps counter-productive  .......

I think you have to take each personality as you find them .......

And 'cherry pick' those that are less volatile ........

For those that seem to be the 'sperm-donors' it is best to ignore them .......  

It puts you, to some degree, in charge .......

And maybe you might get a conversation with others which reveals their inner workings  .......

But not always  ...... eh .......
