Rumor has it that China’s star athletes are waiting for a directive from the Communist Party’s General Sports Council
After facing Nike and other brands involved in the boycott wind, many showbiz stars were quick to say goodbye to foreign brands, but few sports stars came out to take a stand.
According to domestic Chinese media, unlike the entertainment industry, such decisions need to be made by the basketball and soccer associations and must first be approved by the big brother behind them: the Communist Party’s State General Administration of Sports.
You think it’s just a pair of shoes and an endorsement, but there are so many things to deal with behind the scenes,” said Mai Suifeng, a reporter for the Basketball Herald. It’s not realistic to expect individuals to come forward and take on everything, it’s better to be more forgiving to the players involved, everyone is waiting for the attitude of their superiors.”
Expert: Launching a mass boycott is the CCP’s new continuing revolution
Yokogawa, an expert in China studies, said in the latest episode of “Yokogawa Live” that boycotting companies is generally the behavior of individual consumers, while large-scale collective boycotts often have the possibility of striking the economy and threatening the government; unlike the Chinese Communist Party, which has a regular, once-in-a-while boycott against foreign countries or companies.
To be precise, Yokogawa said, the CCP’s initiation or manipulation of mass boycotts of foreign brands is just a new form of “continuing revolution.
“The retaliation between countries does not feel relieved, it does not hurt the other side, it is not reciprocal, because other people’s parliamentarians and scholars do not have savings and mansions in China, and they do not need visas to go to China. Hard gnawing can not hit the soft bar, the country to the company, the package win not lose. This is what the Chinese Communist Party thinks.”
Yokogawa also compared the difference between Chinese boycotts and foreign boycotts. For example: the yellow economic circle in Hong Kong, the boycott is against individuals who cause harm to Hong Kong people, such as the boycott of Hong Kong mooncake vendor Maxim’s Group, because its owner, Wu Shuqing, is a member of the Chinese Communist Party’s Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), supports sending China, and also goes to the United Nations to defend and conduct international public relations for the Hong Kong government and the Chinese Communist Party, supporting the same people.
There is also the boycott and support from the U.S. The boycott is of big companies that are fake news and openly anti-Trump, such as CNN; the support is of companies that are being suppressed because of their support for Trump, such as Goya Foods (GOYA) and My Pillow, all of which are spontaneous and directly related to themselves.
Yokogawa said, “But the great feature of the Chinese boycott is that it has nothing to do with itself, even if it hurts its own interests.”
He added that only the American leftist boycott is similar to China’s. For example, my pillow was threatened by some leftist organizations to be taken off the shelves of chain stores in the name of consumers.
The “Xinjiang cotton” incident is a hidden evil in the Communist prison system’s slave labor products
The Chinese Communist Party launched a “boycott of foreign goods” behind, how much evil is hidden?
According to Minghui.com, from 1999 to the present, when the CCP persecuted Falun Gong, the CCP’s prison and reeducation-through-labor system was at its most frenzied in producing “slave labor” products. The “slave labor” laborers ranged from 16 to 70 years old and had to work 12 to 19 hours a day, and if they failed to meet the prison’s requirements, they had to work overtime. From 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., they had only 10 minutes to eat at noon and were not paid. If you do not complete your task, you will be punished by standing, scolded, not allowed to buy daily necessities, and punished to do toilet hygiene. If they refuse to work as slaves, they will be tortured by the CCP.
The prison system is a well-known export unit, basically no cost, tax-free labor costs, some products are free raw materials, such as funeral Home garbage cloth will be transported to the prison, so that the “slave labor” into labor gloves to sell money.
The Chinese Communist Party continues to incite people to boycott foreign goods because of the “Xinjiang cotton” incident. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Communist Party of China (MFA) has released the philosophical words of the Party’s cultural struggle to confuse the public: “Eat Chinese rice, smash Chinese bowls” and “Chinese people don’t eat this”. According to the Chinese General Administration of Customs, China’s total exports in 2020 will be 17.93 trillion yuan, with 7.4% coming from the textile industry.
If foreign countries boycott China’s cotton exports, it could cost China hundreds of billions of dollars in foreign exchange each year,” said Mr. Yu, a scholar at Xinjiang Agricultural University. The indirect loss to the employment of workers in cotton processing and textile enterprises in Xinjiang region is even more immeasurable.
The Chinese Communist Party’s boycott of brand-name foreign enterprises will eventually lift a stone and smash its own feet. Every link in the industrial chain behind each leading foreign enterprise is linked to the Chinese Communist Party’s enterprises, and the Chinese Communist Party has done something detrimental to itself.
