  • Anyway, the South China Sea  dispute heats up this week.

  • On Monday, 16 Chinese warplanes  breached Malaysian air space.  

  • Malaysia released these  photos of the Chinese planes.

  • Malaysia scrambled jets to  intercept the Chinese aircraft.

  • And is now summoning a Chinese  envoy for a dressing down.

  • The Chinese embassy denied any wrongdoing. “The  planes conducted routine flight training and  

  • 'strictly abided by' international law without  violating airspace of other countries.”

  • Wait, are they saying they didn't violate  the airspace of other countries...because  

  • Malaysia has been part of  China since ancient times?

  • But it's not just Malaysia having  problems. Indonesia announced it's  

  • expanding its submarine fleet in response to  China's aggression in the South China Sea.

  • Indonesia is expanding its sub fleet from 4 to 12,  

  • in response to the Chinese communist regime's  repeated incursion into the disputed waters”.

  • It comes shortly after Indonesia's  fifth submarine sank in April.

  • And the Philippines lodgedformal diplomatic protest to  

  • China's illegal presence in the South China Sea.

  • The complaint is overincessant  deployment, prolonged presence,  

  • and illegal activities of Chinese  maritime assets and fishing vessels”.

  • It comes as China stationed its maritime militia  ships just off an Island in the Spratlys this  

  • week. The island is occupied by the Philippines. It's about 300 miles from the Philippine mainland

  • On top of that, earlier this year,  

  • China sent hundreds of its maritime  militia ships to Whitsun Reef,  

  • which is also part of the Spratlys and within the  Philippines' 200-mile exclusive economic zone.

  • But really, why is everyone so afraid  of the Chinese Communist Party?  

  • Is it the military aggression? It's  the military aggression, isn't it?

  • Well, that's why Chinese leader Xi Jinping  is calling for a more lovable image of China.

  • Xi told state-run Xinhua, “It is necessary to  make friends, unite and win over the majority,  

  • and constantly expand the circle of friends  [when it comes to] international public opinion.”

  • This might look like warm and fuzzy  language--China wants to be loveable!  

  • It needs to expand its circle of friends! But  it's not. Because the whole point of Xi's speech  

  • was that the Chinese regime needed to  do better atpublic opinion struggle.”

  • In such a struggle, there are friends in  the form of compliant media and apologists,  

  • and there are enemies in the  form of recalcitrant journalists,  

  • academics and politicians who insist  on criticismexactly what this external  

  • push is designed to neutralize.” And nothing sayslet's be friends”  

  • quite like a targeted propaganda  campaign aimed at silencing criticism!

  • The Chinese regime willstrengthen propaganda  efforts to help foreigners understand the Chinese  

  • Communist Party and the way it 'strives  for the happiness of the Chinese people.'”

  • Now you might be thinking, China is a country  that uses gang rape as a form of torture.

  • How are they striving for the  happiness of the Chinese people?

  • Well think about ithow much  better will the rest of your day  

  • seem compared to the gang rape?! Apocalyptic  pollution is nothing compared to that!

  • Wow, I want to be friends with China already!

  • But if Xi Jinping really wants to presentlovable image of China, I suggest he start  

  • comparing himself to one of the most lovable  characters of all time: Winnie-the-Pooh!

  • Of course if friendship doesn't workmy favorite Chinese state-run media,  

  • the Global Times, says China needs more  nukes. You know, for threatening the US

  • The editorial came out just hours after U.S.  Trade Representative Katherine Tai and Chinese  

  • Vice Premier Liu He held an online meeting. I think the Chinese Communist Party doesn't  

  • like Tai. Earlier in May, she said inCongressional hearing, “If China cannot or  

  • will not adapt to international rules and normswe must be bold and creative in taking steps  

  • to level the playing field and enhance  our own capabilities and partnerships.”

  • Bold and creative. Well, China's answer  tobold and creativeis more nukes.

  • But maybe I'm being unfair. It's possible  that the Global Times article had nothing  

  • to do with the trade meeting. Because  it also came out after the US started  

  • pushing for more investigations into  the origin of the coronavirus outbreak.

  • But you know, speaking of my favorite  Chinese state-run media, the Global Times,  

  • I can't help but think about the Washington Post.

  • At the beginning of the coronavirus pandemicThe Washington Post was very critical of anyone  

  • pushing the absolutely insane conspiracy theory  that the coronavirus leaked from a Chinese lab.

  • Here's a headline from February 2020,  Republican Senator Tom Cotton keeps  

  • repeating a coronavirus conspiracy  theory that was already debunked

  • Well, this week they quietly changed that headline  

  • to Tom Cotton keeps repeating a coronavirus  fringe theory that scientists have disputed.

  • How about that?

  • It comes as the Washington Post has recently been  

  • forced to admit the lab leak  theory is actually credible.

  • You know, journalists should own up to  their mistakes. What's that Shelley? Oh,  

  • it seems I made a mistake. And I'll own up to it.  

  • I said the original headline was from  2020. I was wrong. It's from 1984.

  • But if you love disturbing coverupsstick around after the break.

  • Welcome back.

  • If you're feeling nostalgic for the  early days of the coronavirus pandemic,  

  • China is reporting the very first case  of a human getting a new bird flu.

  • Don't worry, the Chinese government says  the risk of large-scale spread is low.  

  • And when have they ever lied?

  • Speaking of people without a clue, Tesla  is setting up a data center in China.  

  • All Chinese user data will be easily  accessible by the Chinese government.

  • And after Tesla did the unethical thing the  Chinese Communist Party wanted them to do,  

  • the Party screwed Tesla anyway.

  • I feel like there's a lesson here somewhere.

  • But speaking of crackdowns, Hong Kong.

  • Today is June 4. It's the anniversary  of when the Chinese Communist Party  

  • sent their army to crush student  protests in Tiananmen Square in 1989.

  • And every year since then, Hong Kongers have  held a candlelight vigil in Victoria Park,  

  • to commemorate the thousands of victims.

  • But now that the Chinese government has  passed its Hong Kong National Security Law,  

  • it looks like they won't be  permitting these vigils ever again.

  • You know, because of health and safety reasons.

  • This year, it's because of the coronavirus.

  • Next year, who knows? Maybe  we'll have a new bird flu?

  • It's such a dangerous safety issue,  

  • that anyone who attends can be thrown  in prison for up to five years.

  • And to make sure that no one dangerously  gathered in large groups in public,  

  • the Hong Kong police mobilized 7000  officers to patrol the streets.

  • Looking for people who were wearing blackchanting slogans, or holding candles

  • You can always spot a dangerous  criminal by the candle they're holding

  • Speaking of dangerous Hong  Kong criminals, Grandma Wong

  • She's an elderly Hong Kong democracy protester.

  • When we were there in 2019, we  saw her at all the big protests.

  • But now, she's been arrested for  commemorating the Tiananmen Square Massacre.

  • Obviously, her protest was  a health and safety risk.  

  • Even though...she was the only one at her protest.

  • But look, arresting this elderly woman was for  her own good. I would never question my government  

  • if they tell me they have to take away  my liberty for everyone else's safety.

  • Also for safety issues, two days  ago authorities from theFood  

  • and Environmental Hygiene Departmentshut  down Hong Kong's Tiananmen Square museum.  

  • It was for illegally operating a  “place of public entertainment.”

  • You've got to protect people's safety!

  • And speaking of catastrophic assaults  on human dignitythe Friends Reunion

  • Apparently that was a big deal to some people.  

  • But if you were watching it in Chinayou saw something a little different.  

  • Because the cameos by Lady Gaga, Justin Bieberand Korean boy band BTS were all censored.

  • That's right, they're all banned in Chinaso those bits got cut in the mainland.  

  • But since the Friends Reunion was  unwatchable, I'm not sure anyone noticed.
