  • Tesla's China honeymoon is over.

  • The US and China agree on climate cooperation

  • Plus, Australia cancels a suspicious deal with China.

  • That and more on this week's China news headlines

  • Welcome to China Uncensored, I'm Chris Chappell.

  • This week's China news headlines

  • Things aren't going so well for Elon Musk and Tesla in China.

  • I tried to warn you, Elon.

  • I tried.

  • This week was the Shanghai Auto Show.

  • A perfect opportunity to show off the new Tesla.

  • Except they got upstaged by protests.

  • Protests, in China?

  • It's a little sus, and I'll get to that in a minute.

  • This video from the protests went viral.

  • This woman climbed on top of a Tesla and started saying some not very nice things.

  • Her t-shirt saysThe Brakes Don't WorkandInvisible Killer.”

  • Invisible Killer?

  • You mean Elon Musks has an invisible car?!

  • How does he not lose it?

  • The woman was later dragged off by security guards.

  • But, “The incident overshadowed an announcement [Tesla] made the same day...the automaker

  • would start developing some of its vehicles in China from scratchwith new models that

  • would incorporate 'many Chinese elements.'”

  • Ohh, many Chinese elements?

  • Like ethnic slave labor?

  • Anyway, the Tesla protest, “hit a nerve in China, sending complaints about the company

  • ricocheting across the Chinese internet.”

  • That's interesting, considering how tightly the Chinese Communist Party controls the Internet.

  • Things don't go viral for very long unless the internet censors allow it.

  • Maybe it was the fact most of these social media comments came to the conclusion they

  • should just buy Chinese cars instead of Teslas.

  • Interesting.

  • This story was so big, even state-run media covered it.

  • I know, Chinese state-run media covering a protest in China.

  • Interesting.

  • Not only that, “The Central Political and Legal Affairs Commission, a high-level Communist

  • Party body...accused Tesla of arrogance and of endangering Chinese consumers by selling

  • defective products.”

  • Interesting.

  • It's almost as if the Communist Party itself has taken issue with Tesla.

  • Tesla has now apologized for how the protester was handled.

  • And it was totally inappropriate.

  • That's not how you treat protesters in China.

  • You're not supposed to let them criticize you in public!

  • You're supposed to drag them outside and beat them *before* they do any protesting.

  • It's unclear to me what the quality of Tesla's China-made cars are.

  • In February, Chinese regulators summoned Tesla for a rare public rebuke over its quality

  • record.

  • Then they banned military and state employees from using Tesla.

  • The Chinese regime accused Tesla of gathering data on Chinese drivers.

  • Which, of course they do.

  • That's how Tesla's automated driving system works.

  • It collects user data.

  • But now the Chinese regime has arbitrarily labeled it a national security risk, so they

  • can have leverage over Tesla.

  • Elon Musk may be a smart man, but when it comes to China, he's been making the same

  • stupid mistake Western businessmen have been making for decades.

  • Elon Musk went into China with big dreams.

  • But Chinese competitors stole his technology, with government support.

  • Now the Chinese government is using legal warfare to squeeze Tesla out of the China

  • market, and promote home-grown companies.

  • This always happens!

  • Why are smart people so stupid?

  • Chinese leader Xi Jinping has some pretty harsh words for...no country in particular

  • At the annual Boao Forum for Asia Xi criticized efforts by some countries tobuild barriers

  • anddecouple.”

  • He saidThe world wants justice, not hegemony.”

  • Yeah, Xi didn't say which country in particular was building barriers and decoupling.

  • But I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess he was talking about...Palau.

  • And you know who's going to stand up for the world against global hegemons like...Palau?

  • The Chinese Communist Party.

  • Don't worry, world.

  • Xi Jinping says thatChina will never seek hegemony, expansion, or a sphere of influence

  • no matter how strong it may grow.”

  • Sure.

  • That's like when I tell myself I'm not going to eat Cheez-its while my hand is literally

  • in the Cheez-it box.

  • Meanwhile, the Chinese Communist Party is gearing up for its 100th birthday.

  • And like most 100 year olds, it's decrepit and falling apart.

  • But that's not the message they're going with.

  • They want people to follow the Party forever.

  • The Party is pushingPatriotic films.

  • History lessons.

  • Mass weddings.”

  • Just like Mao intended.

  • The anniversary is July 1.

  • And to get everyone in the spirit, the Party is cracking down on anyone who makes illegal

  • comments on history.

  • And that might even include former top ranking Communist Party members.

  • Like Former Premier Wen Jiabao . He wrote a touching memorial to his recently deceased

  • mother.

  • It got censored.

  • Why?

  • Well, in the article he, in a rather roundabout way, called for more fairness, justice, humanity,

  • and liberty in China.

  • Yeah, that's not gonna fly.

  • Premier Wen Jiabao also wrote that his time as the second highest ranking official in

  • the Communist Party was quotelike walking on thin ice.”

  • Being a Communist Party member is tough.

  • Just look at what it did to the number one guy at the time, Hu Jintao.

  • This is him as a young man.

  • And this is him as the head of the Party.

  • His nickname was woodface.

  • It's been a great 100 years for the Party.

  • War, famine, cultural destruction, and lots and lots of labor camps.

  • So much to celebrate.

  • And the Biden administration is celebrating by making a new agreement with China.

  • More after the break.

  • Welcome back.

  • The Biden Administration and the Chinese Communist Party have made an agreement to cooperate

  • on climate issues.

  • The agreement came days before Joe Biden will hold a virtual summit of world leaders to

  • discuss climate change.

  • Just what our planet needspoliticians spewing hot air.

  • Of course, China is the world's largest emitter of greenhouse gases.

  • China burns more coal than the rest of the world combined.

  • And that's why the US has to work with China.

  • Climate change is a global issue.

  • And we can only solve it if we work together...with regimes that break their promises.

  • Why does no one ever listen.

  • But at least China is doing one thing to combat climate change.

  • After stealing US technology, China now makes most of the world's solar panels.

  • And they're much cheaper now.

  • Because they use ethnic slave labor.

  • Fighting climate change, protecting human rightswho says you can't do neither.

  • This week, Biden met with Japanese Prime Minister Yoshide Suga.

  • It was his first in person meeting with a world leader.

  • And the point was to project unity against China's assertiveness.

  • And to make sure America can get more of this...

  • And less of this...

  • We did a full episode covering the meeting on our other channel, America Uncovered.

  • Check it out, the link is in the description below.

  • Chinese hackers are compromising dozens of government agencies, and defense contractors.

  • Hackers were able to exploit a VPN called Pulse Secure that many US government agencies,

  • and just normal companies, were using so their employees could work remotely.

  • And good news, the hacking is still going on.

  • But in some actual good news, Australia has canceled a major Belt and Road deal with China.

  • Which of course angered China.

  • This is the state of Victoria.

  • It's biggest city is Melbourne.

  • It's the San Francisco of Australia.

  • You may remember it for having one of the longest and harshest Covid lockdowns in the

  • world.

  • Years ago, Victoria's leadership made several high profile deals with China as part of the

  • Belt and Road initiative.

  • That's China's global investment and infrastructure plan that gets up to some pretty shady stuff.

  • But those deals have now been scrapped.

  • That's under a new Australian law that gives Australia's federal government the power

  • to stop deals that Australia's states have made with foreign governments.

  • And get this.

  • Two other deals between Victoria and the governments of Iran and Syria have also been

  • scrapped.”

  • Making deals with China, Iran, and Syria?

  • What was the state of Victoria getting up to?!

  • I say, not enough.

  • If Premier Daniel Andrews really wants to bring his state a brighter future, it's

  • time to buy nukes from Kim Jung-un.

  • Although Victoria seems a little eager to make deals with authoritarian regimes, it's

  • not alone in potentially having its deals with China cancelled.

  • The law may still allow the federal government to review and overturn memorandums of understanding

  • between Beijing and the state governments of Western Australia, South Australia and

  • Tasmania.”

  • That last deal was a real whirlwind.

  • Like I said, the Chinese regime is not happy.

  • Hu Xijin, the editor-in-chief of my favorite Chinese state-run media, the Global Times,

  • tweeted: “A formal agreement has been cancelled so

  • easily.

  • Australians, is your country a uncivilized rogue that deserves stern admonition and punishment?”

  • Oh Hu.

  • Were you trying to insult Australia or compliment it?

  • Because Australia's entire brand isuncivilized rogue.”

  • It's what makes them so charming.

  • And now time to answer a question from a member of the China Uncensored 50 Cent Army, fans

  • who support the show on Patreon.

  • brazzjazz asksMova Globes all seem to depict Taiwan as part of China, I have checked

  • several globes on their website.

  • Why would you accept such a company as your sponsor??”

  • Excellent question Brazzjazz!

  • We actually did a whole episode on it, called How China Is Secretly Changing Everyone's

  • Maps.

  • The link is in the Description.

  • But here's the gist.

  • MOVA Globes, like many Western companies, had their products made in factories in China.

  • But then the Chinese government required that all their maps sold in China, or printed in

  • China but sold abroad, had to have China's official version of the world map.

  • That meant some MOVA Globes were being printed with China's 9 Dash Line and Taiwan labeled

  • as part of China.

  • But the good news is that MOVA pulled its manufacturing out of China a couple years

  • ago.

  • And MOVA was open and honest with us about what happened, and helped us expose what the

  • CCP is doing.

  • They're not printing China's version of the map anymore.

  • Like if you order this 6” Black and Silver model, it no longer has it.

  • But some of the other sizes and models still doat least until their stock runs out.

  • So if you want to make sure the one you order doesn't have the Nine-Dash Line, contact

  • MOVA's Customer Care.

  • Thanks for your question brazzjazz.

  • And thank you for watching.

  • Once again I'm Chris Chappell.

  • See you next time.
