The Viciousness of U.S.-and-Allied ‘News’-Media

Here is a “Full translation of Peng Shuai’s Weibo post, accusing [the former] Chinese Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli of sexual assault”, and it turns out NOT to have been accusing any “assault” by China’s Vice Premier but instead a mutually voluntary sexual and love attraction between those two, Zhang who seems to have had an unhappy marriage, and, as Peng phrased it, “our affection towards each other had nothing to do with money or power. But I have a hard time finding closure for, and coming to terms with our three-year-long relationship.”

She said that when she had first met Zhang “ten years ago in Tianjin, you wanted to have sex with me,” and Peng did not want sex with a married man, but, “About seven years ago, we had sex. Then, later on after you got promoted to be a member of the Politburo Standing Committee in Beijing, you never contacted me again.” So: he was NOT a Politburo member when the affair started; and, as soon as he became one, he “never contacted me again.” But now that he has retired:

You said in those seven years, you never forgot about me, and you will treat me well etc… I was terrified and anxious. Taking into consideration the affection I had for you seven years ago, I agreed… yes, we had sex.

Romantic attraction is such a complicated thing that [no one can] explain it clearly. From that day on [3 years ago], I renewed my love for you. Throughout my time with you after that [now as a retired politician], purely based on our interactions, you were a very good person, and you treated me well. We talking about recent history, as well as ancient eras. You educated me on so many topics, and we had discussions about economics, politics. We never ran out of things to talk about. We played chess, sang, played table tennis, played pool and also played tennis together. We always had endless fun. It was as if our personalities fit perfectly together.

So, during the first three years, she had said no to sex with him, but then he got promoted to the Politburo and ceased pursuing her; but he retired seven years later, and “Taking into consideration the affection I had for you seven years ago, I agreed… yes, we had sex.”

How, then, do the Western ’news’-media represent this as having been a case of “sexual assault”?

Of course, first of all, it is about censorship of the truth, because that English-language translation of Peng’s statement had been first posted to Reddit on November 4th; and, so, everything that it says OUGHT to have been the key source for the U.S.-and-allied ‘news’-reports about the matter — but were not.

It’s all part of the U.S.-and-allied attempt to get the upcoming Beijing Olympics either cancelled or else sanctioned into embarrassment and failure for China’s Government. It’s not only about censorship-of-the-truth, but about lying-for-a-purpose. It’s about propaganda.

I am sorry to see that this famous sports figure has allowed herself to be used as a political weapon against her own country by the politicized “MeToo” movement used as a weapon against men politicians wish to destroy. It speaks well for China that she has not been disappeared. Had she (or any other woman) done this against any high ranking politician in the US Democrat establishment, it’s my guess she would not have been so lucky.

Well, isn’t she a stupid girl? What sense is there is spewing all this?
Unless, as you say, she was used by these low lives that pass for leaders in the West.
That idiot Le Drian was droning on about punishing China for “human rights abuse”… Talk of a chicken insect threatening a dragon…

She is not only a stupid girl but even a dumb cow. She should have stayed away from that married man, instead of playing the Chinese “drama queen”, when thngs got ugly. Aren’t there any unmarried men left in China? She should get a husband of her own, the thief!

All I can do is guess, of course, but I suspect she wants to get out of China and was promised the moon, including a US visa, by the CIA if she were to allow herself to be used for anti-China propaganda to avoid the Olympic Games to be held there, or to justify “sanctions” against China by way of withdrawing US athletes from the Games. She is neither a stupid girl nor a dumb cow – she is a liar and a traitor to her country.

Dear Helga, I agree. She fell into a CIA trap, so let’s say: she is a stupid girl, a dumb cow, a liar, a traitor to her country. Smart girls use their intelligence. They do not step into CIA traps!

I see it as an issue of morality and conscience, not a matter involving IQ. Some highly intelligent people willingly sell their souls to the devil, while some really dumb ones manage to follow a moral compass. She apparently lacks the latter.

Well, you could be right, Helga. Since I have never met this young Chinese lady, I cannot really say much more about her than I have already said. I generally disapprove of women having sex with married men. So, yes, Helga, for me this is mainly a matter of morality or ethical codes.

Also, I wonder what she found so attractive in a man 40 years her senior? Maybe his wealth? Or his connections? She is a calculating bitch who got what she deserved.

On the latest anti-Chinese corporate media follies. Consensual sex and a love story of sorts, but since no powerful Democratic Politicians were involved (think Biden) it can be labelled sexual assault. And China sanctioned, and its Olympics tainted. Hooooray!!!

The media in America and Europe including Britain are some of the worst beings on this planet. They don’t care who they hurt or even who dies so long as it makes them Money!!!! Pond life are really nice compared to them.

Over forty years ago the Main sewer Stream Media in the West abandoned the journalistic principles of the Fourth Estate and opted for a leadership role in the propagandist Fifth Column so much so that the Sun and national Enquirer have become more credible than they…

Zhang Gaoli, born in 1946 – Peng, born in 1986. Forty years of difference in age! Wow! Do not tell me that this was love at first sight for the girl. She is a calculating bitch, whose calculations went wrong. Sleeping with a married man who is 40 years older than her? Might have slep as well with her own grandpa.
