Chinese who live in America, enjoying their luxurious life-style and freedom there but being anti-America. With their family, too. Hypocrites?


“Being Anti-American Is Work , Living In America Is Life | Fifty Cents Army | Weibo”


“Being anti-American is work, living in America is life”. This phrase has become very popular in the Chinese community in recent years. So what does it mean? Let’s look at an example first. Chen Ping, a professor of economics at Fudan University and Beijing University, is known for his anti-U.S. rhetoric on Weibo and on various forums. In a speech at the National Research Institute of Xinghua University, Chen Ping said that if he had a monthly salary of 2,000RMB in China, his life experience would be “much more comfortable than having $3,000 in the United States” and said that the U.S. “is in dire straits”. Recently, there was a power outage in Texas due to low temperatures and snowstorm. Chen Ping, who is in the U.S., posted on his Sina Weibo account on Feb. 17 that although he is in the high-tech district of Austin, he still has no electricity. He said that China “cannot follow the Western model and pursue unsustainable modernization and urbanization,” and attached a selfie of himself with a stand-alone house behind him. He also said that “the U.S. military is still boasting of a nuclear war with China and Russia, but a single cold wave has crippled the power grid and traffic in nearly half of the US coastal areas”. Netizens jokingly called Chen Ping a perfect representation of what it means to be “anti-American is work, living in America is life”. Other people like Chen Ping who went against their words of “anti-Americanism” include Jin Canrong, the vice dean of the School of International Relations at Renmin University. Jin’s most famous statementS include: “It will only take a few hours to destroy the U.S. military bases in the Pacific region of Asia.” “Huawei’s technology have long surpassed the U.S., and is only using theirs simply to spare them some dignity.” “Democracy and freedom are poison”, “It’s a cult”. Jin once said publicly that he does not recommend sending his children abroad to study. However, last year, a video of him officiating the wedding of his son in the U.S. was released on the Internet, and netizens called Jin Canrong hypocritical and even sharply criticized him for sending his son to school in the U.S., calling him a “foreign dog”. Some netizens also asked, “Is it true that Professor Jin is the same as “being anti-America is work, living in America is life? The most ironic of all is the famous “Fifty Cents Army” opinion leader “Ran Xiang” on Weibo, known for being “anti-American and pro-communist”. Her real identity is Yuan Xiaoliang, the wife of Australian-Chinese Internet writer Yang Hengjun. There are many videos on the Internet showing Yuan Xiaoliang’s frequent comments in defense of the Chinese Communist dictatorship, and criticism of Western democracy and freedom. She has a reputation for being a “big wumao (50 cents)”, a name she seems to agree with. In one of the videos, she says that people call patriots like her “fifty-cent”. In another video, she answers a reporter’s question about multi-party democracy by saying, “We haven’t found any successful examples of that kind of American system here in Asia”. In May 2018, Yuan Xiaoliang’s family moved to the United States, where she published an article titled “Confessions of a Wonder Woman,” stating that she was anti-American because of work, and came to America for a living. Some of these people have already settled in the United States, some have only sent their wives and children to the United States, while they are still in China singing the praises of the CCP and making money as anti-American warriors. There is no way to know what they’re really thinking, but their dual personalities are very puzzling.
