"Baizuo" Is The New Derogatory Term Millions Of Chinese Are Using To Describe America's "White Left" Regressive Liberals

Authored by Daniel Lang via SHTFplan.com,

After the last election, the far-left in our society became a laughing stock. The social justice warriors, the progressives, the regressive left; whatever you want to call them, they became a joke after Trump was elected. And it wasn’t because they lost the election. It was because of how they reacted to losing. We all witnessed what amounted to a nationwide temper tantrum on November 9th. And in the weeks that followed, it became apparent that these people aren’t just childish. They are freaking insane.

However, it may surprise you to learn that these people aren’t just a joke in America. They are the laughing stock of the world. They are looked down upon, even in countries where they don’t have a significant presence.

In China for instance, they have a word for these people. They are called “baizuo” or the “white left” on social media. Which is interesting, because even though China has its fair share of socialists and communists, they don’t have a direct equivalent to our liberal snowflakes. Most of the Chinese are still fiercely nationalistic and anti-immigrant, regardless of political affiliation. That country just doesn’t have a large population of politically correct, affluent liberals (presumably, they were all killed off during the Great Leap Forward). So what does this term mean to the average Chinese citizen?

It might not be an easy task to define the term, for as a social media buzzword and very often an instrument for ad hominem attack, it could mean different things for different people. A thread on “why well-educated elites in the west are seen as naïve “white left” in China” on Zhihu, a question-and-answer website said to have a high percentage of active users who are professionals and intellectuals, might serve as a starting point.

 

The question has received more than 400 answers from Zhihu users, which include some of the most representative perceptions of the ‘white left’. Although the emphasis varies, baizuo is used generally to describe those who “only care about topics such as immigration, minorities, LGBT and the environment” and “have no sense of real problems in the real world”; they are hypocritical humanitarians who advocate for peace and equality only to “satisfy their own feeling of moral superiority”; they are “obsessed with political correctness” to the extent that they “tolerate backwards Islamic values for the sake of multiculturalism”; they believe in the welfare state that “benefits only the idle and the free riders”; they are the “ignorant and arrogant westerners” who “pity the rest of the world and think they are saviours”.

Baizuo has basically become the go to word for Chinese social media users, who want to trash other people in online debates. It’s also frequently used to make light of what is viewed in China, as the inherent weakness of western democracies. So not only has the far-left made themselves into a joke, they’re making everyone else who supports Western civilization look bad all around the world.

It just goes to show, the people who speak the loudest in society often become the face of that society, even if most sane people aren’t taking them seriously anymore.

“Shoot George Soros in the head”.

while it is always satisfying to watch a devil get its deserved treatment it is at the same time clear that a doomed culture cannot be saved by a bunch of radicalized sheeple prowling the comment sections of ZH et al. The resistance needs to be organized and to prevent that the devils in charge have been very successful.

That is completely ignorant. Soros is a lieutenant for the Rothschilds. His money came from them. They own him.

Unfortunately, the whole US Government has become a bit of a Clown Show in the eyes of the rest of the world. I think many non-US persons fail to understand the lack of seriousness in Government as illustrated by the calls for impeachment of a President who has not been proven to have committed any offense (so far as I can see) or, especially in the face of such severe economic and social problems, the whole political aparatus is focused on patently false accusations of Russian meddling in US affairs whilst doing nothing to address the real problems. Exceptional indeed...

Just goes to show lefTARDS shouldn't be "governing" in the first place.

You're giving me ideas.

The author of the above article is obviously clueless. He is a spawn of corporate US Inc. = designed with a worldview that makes any real change impossible. He believes the narrative that he is force-fed: that US is a democracy comprised of “a left-wing” and “a right-wing”. It is not. US is a corporate fascist authoritarian empire. It is controlled by a small cabal of banksters (=it is de facto privately owned = it is by all relevant definitions of the term capitalist). Its “elections” are nothing but theatre put in places to create an illusion of choice. You cannot vote against the interest of JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Exxon etc. = you cannon vote “left-wing”/you cannon vote against the interests of the “capital owners”/the capitalists.

The “libtards” are a laughing stock of the world – but so are the “Trumpards”. USA is full of nothing but tards – this author being a prime example…

In the rest of the world being a “liberalist” or a “liberal” is (rightly) seen as being right-wing. But well, in relation to full blown fascism I guess “liberal” is “extreme left-wing”. What a (sad) joke US (and its plebs) have become.

The MSM 'News' is little more than propaganda for State historian to pick through in the future when they write "History" for the sheeple .

I'm going to disagree with a minor part where they say the left cares about the environment - they haven't done more than pay lip service to it in a very long time.

Colonel's picture

That's all lefTARDS ever do about anything or anyone they claim to "care" about, pay lip service.

Squid-puppets a-go-go's picture

lol thats funny, my perception was the environmentalists were the only part of the Left that still makes sense anymore  (notwithstanding that globalists are feeding them bullshit statistics to throw them off course)

techpriest's picture

Nah, they overlook major environmental disaster while pumping the hell out of the only environmental issue that would give them more power.

Large swaths of the Gulf of Mexico are killed off by ag runoff, agrochemicals are killing bees, and cities are designed to require cars. None of these issues ever come up - it's all about creating a carbon tax so Al Gore can get his cut.

BarkingCat's picture

I gave you an upvote but it is so Goldman and Sachs can get to make a market in carbon credits trading.

Al Gore is just a tool.

The baizou long ago drove all the real environmentalist?s out of the American Green parties.

Interesting ... I just call them white wigger liberals.  Cover many monikers at once.

I'll have to ask my wife (Chinese, and connected to social media via business) if there's any veracity to this. I do know that the Chinese in DFW have all decided to start organizing and getting into politics after the Obama transgender bathroom issue, because that's when they had enough of SJWs.

Believe it or not, the Left is a walking contradiction dependent on single-issue voters who never talk to each other. Give a few of them an opportunity elsewhere and the whole house of cards comes down.

Chinese run on whatever party will elect them.  Democrat in CA.  Their objective is to pass proChinese laws that fuck over Americans and American culture.  They never assimilate.  They marry old white guys then leave once they get the green card.

Wow. That doesn't gibe with my experience at all.

Who needs confirmation?

We know them as 'Leftards', 'Snowflakes' or plain and simply 'cnuts'.

The facts are - (1) they exist (2) they lie.

The sad thing is, the left used to stand for decent things: working conditions, the environment, and anti-war.

The word "liberal" in the political sense would be unrecognizable to somebody from the 60s.  

BarkingCat's picture

In the 1960s the word "liberal" was already unrecognizable from its real meaning.

Squid-puppets a-go-go's picture

yes, they used to be the Humanists. But they got authority, then they got drunk on that authority, and now Humanist disasters can occur on their watch and they will ignore it as the social-climbing of political correctness (and the social death terror of being seen as incorrect) has too impenatrable a grip on their ego complex

"Western democracy" is a bad flipping joke of failed ideology that has nothing to do with the foundation of the USA.

What do you think her sucess in finding employment is after that little tantrum?

I have several clients originally from China. They think white people are all crazy and they think the US is becoming a laughing stock around the world. From their perspective, we have everything going for us, and we are pissing it away. They don't care about political correctness, or politics in general, or social justice. They just want to be left alone and they want to make money. I have learned so much about capitalism from them.
