US elites want fewer Americans to know the true China

A misunderstanding of China is probably what some US elites want. Only when there are fewer Americans who know what the real China is like can the US elites better play their tricks to deceive the people, and achieve their political goals by creating new disputes to maintain tensions between China and the US.

China exercises restraint, but not out of fear

Hysterical US sees China's vaccine a diplomatic weapon

Chinese people confident in CPC despite strong US pressure

According to a Global Times online survey this week, about 96 percent of the Chinese netizen participants believe that the US' attacks on the Communist Party of China (CPC) aim to "sow discord between the Chinese people and the Party to jeopardize solidarity in China," and to "mobilize a new Cold War against China by attaching an anti-CPC ideological label to US' anti-China campaign." Only 2 percent of the participants think "the US does so for China's good."

US shirks international responsibility, pushes new Cold War

As Washington launches an apparent all-out new Cold War against China, the US is increasingly seen as a petty superpower. The latest evidence lies in Foreign Policy magazine's Friday article hyping the "China threat," which is full of worn-out clichés.

More Americans should be encouraged to learn Chinese

Let more Americans learn Chinese, then they will be able to tell right from wrong, and grasp the real picture of China that is completely different from the demonization in the election campaign.

Does TikTok evoke Ferguson's nostalgia over British Empire?

Some Westerners have twisted mind-set on #TikTok, a Chinese social media app that poses real challenge to US internet giants. They still live in nostalgia over Western empires' glory in the past, hope to see China as a subordinate to the West.

Absurd for Trump to assume China wants to 'own' US

No matter how hard they try to throw mud at China, it wouldn't cause a substantial impact on China. China's development mainly depends on its firm insistence on the path of reform and opening-up, and the diligent work of the Chinese people. China will never pin its development on the policy change of a new US president.

US technological authoritarian mentality hurts American companies

China's political system and ideology did not, does not, and will not restrict dynamic companies like TikTok and Huawei from innovation and development. It is the US' Cold War mindset that tries to stifle them.

Ridiculous US speech controls see pandas as state-affiliated media

The so-called freedom of speech in the US has always been a false proposition. Washington has shamelessly made freedom of speech its motto. But when it comes to a real clash of speech, people will see speech control measures (such as removing online posts or adding special labels to certain social media accounts) be adopted in the US. Twitter's recent variation of censorship move has again exposed that the US "has no clothes" called freedom of speech.

If war breaks out between China and the US, which side will have the upper hand?

PEN America imposes double standards of free expression in Hollywood

The US, which stresses political correctness more than ever, does not enjoy so-called freedom of speech as much as it claims. While Hollywood blockbusters have be shown in China, such as superhero movies like Captain America, The Avengers and Spider-Man, to name just a few, will US authorities give the green light to films featuring Chinese heroes? The answer is no. So where does their touted freedom of speech lie?
