Chinese propaganda at its hottest

Currently all kenyan media websites have sponsored articles about China. inakaa wanalipa poa

How can anyone be so stupid as to publish this? This stuff is just painful to read. Cringeworthy.

MITTER: He absolutely does have a governing philosophy, Michel, and it’s made up of a couple of very notable strands. I mean, first of all, as you’ve just said, he was one of that generation shaken by the sudden collapse of the Soviet Union back in 1991. He was not someone who has ever regarded Mikhail Gorbachev, the late last Soviet leader, as being a hero. And Xi Jinping is even reported to have said that the problem with the Soviet Union was that, quote, “there wasn’t a real man who stepped forward to actually save the party.” So that memory is certainly in his mind. But there are a couple of other things, too.

The first is a fierce and unapologetic belief that China’s time has come to rise in the world again. The last 200 years or so have been a time when China was first invaded by the countries in the 19th and 20th centuries and then had to spend time building its economy, particularly under paramount leader Deng Xiaoping back in the late 20th century, to get to where it is. And now it’s time for China to have a much bigger global role and also to essentially accept no criticism, no pushback from the outside world, about how the system will be.

His second conviction is - well, he calls himself a 21st-century Marxist. Now, he’s very upfront that when he says he runs a Communist Party, he means it. And by combining the ideas of Marx and Lenin, he basically makes no apology for the fact that China is an authoritarian state, which has heavily narrowed even the limited freedoms of media, free speech and so forth that existed even 10 to 15 years ago. They were always very restricted, but some areas, like social media, were relatively open. Now they’ve been much more heavily censored and closed down because Xi Jinping openly said everything has to be about the party.

Dawa ya propaganda is to look for alternative voices

It’s a sponsored article, it’s business, they’re running a professional business

Boy wa Putin Niko nyuma ya the dragon from the orient.

Are you Afraid you’ll be forced to read it. Are your eyes literally programmed to beam words into your brain without stopping?

But it’s just rubbish meant to perpetuate a cult of personality around the guy. Why should I read rubbish?
This is no different from the Baba Moi this baba moi that of yesteryears or the classic:
“His Excellency, President for life, Field Marshal Al Hadji Doctor Idi Amin Dada, VC, DSO, MC, Lord of all Beasts of the Earth and the Fishes of the Sea and the Conqueror of the British Empire in Africa in General and Uganda in particular”.
or
Mobutu Sese Seko Nkuku Ngbendu Wa Za Banga (meaning “The all-powerful warrior who, because of his endurance and inflexible will to win, goes from conquest to conquest, leaving fire in his wake.”). Father of the Nation, Messiah, Guide of the Revolution, Helmsman, Founder, Savior of the People, Supreme Combatant.
or
Jean-Bédel Bokassa, Emperor of Central Africa by the will of the Central African people, united within the national political party, the MESAN.

It really is that stupid.

If it’s stupid and rubbish, why not just ignore it. Where is your outrage at all the dehumanizing porn easily accessible to Kenyans? Or do you believe yourself superior to other Kenyans who will not see it as stupid and rubbish
