China whispers to America’s allies behind America’s back – in the form of a poorly produced music video.
Last week, the Chinese embassy in France released a fake children’s song about “American hacking” on social media. The video shows a lip-sync Chinese woman in a high hat singing along with several angry animals playing instruments. The song is roughly set to the tune of “The Wellerman,” a New Zealand marine song that became hugely popular on video site TikTok at the beginning of the year.
The simple words translated into both begin: “Use democracy your mantle, American piracy rules the world.” Chinese and English, but not French. “If a country refuses, you will attack it as your opponent.”
The new texts penalize the United States over a range of disputes, including the United States’ role as “a human rights police officer around the world.” The repeated chorus contains a double stanza that says, “Our democracy reflects our culture, our will, and our spirit. If your system can handle everything, why has it caused so many problems?”
The music video also accuses the United States of rigging elections and disinformation in order to “misrepresent” the results, saying, “Inside the country, money speaks. [corporation.] Misrepresentation and manipulation of election results
The video ends with a caption by Xinhua News – the official news agency and news outlets of the Communist Party of China.
Many lines, including the recurring chorus, are sped up to get more syllables than the lines they emulate.
The White House reportedly filmed a Taiwanese minister on video during President Biden’s Democracy Summit on Friday, when China and Taiwan appeared as separate colors on the map.
Taiwan It is colored green on the map, indicating that it is “open” for civil rights, while China is colored red and described as “closed.” China considers Taiwan a part of its own country while Taiwan operates as an independent country.
“Of course it’s about policy issues,” A source told Reuters A video was made of Taiwan’s Minister of Digital Affairs, Audrey Tang, only on Friday when she presented a map that distinguishes Taiwan from China. “This was a completely exaggerated internal reaction.”
The French embassy and the Chinese embassy in the United States did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
