  • On this episode of China Uncensored,

  • if you criticize socialism,

  • does that mean you're not being very sociable?

  • Hi, welcome to China Uncensored,

  • I'm your host Chris Chappell.

  • US President Donald Trump spoke

  • at the UN General Assembly this week.

  • And it seemed to go well.

  • In less than two years,

  • my administration has accomplished more than

  • almost any administration in the history of our country.

  • America...so true.

  • Didn't expect that reaction but that's okay.

  • A little laughter, and some applause.

  • But there aresome countries,” according to Trump,

  • that just aren't playing by the same rules as everyone else.

  • For example,

  • countries were admitted to the World Trade Organization

  • that violate every single principle on which the organization is based.

  • Some countries abused their openness to dump their products,

  • subsidize their goods, target our industries,

  • and manipulate their currencies

  • to gain unfair advantage over our country.”

  • These countries use government-run industrial planning

  • and state-owned enterprises to rig the system in their favor.”

  • Yeah, “some countries”!

  • Not to name names here.

  • And I respect your self-restraint, Mr. President.

  • But it's ok to say your favorite word!

  • China, China, China

  • The United States has just announced another

  • 200 billion dollars in tariffs on Chinese made goods,

  • for a total of 250 billion dollars.

  • Oh my gosh does the Chinese representative have a black eye?!

  • Hang on, I've just received this letter from the Chinese Consulate!

  • Apparently, China's UN representative...

  • fell down the stairs.

  • Huh.

  • But the Chinese Communist Party wants you to know,

  • if any country is being abusive, it's the United States.

  • Now that the U.S. has taken

  • such sweeping measures of trade restrictions,

  • which is like putting a knife to others' neck,

  • how could we conduct negotiations?”

  • State-run Xinhua accuses the US oftrade bullyism.”

  • Bullyism?

  • Bully-ism?

  • Wow, it's like China's even stealing our insults...

  • and reverse engineering them,

  • and then trying to sell us badly-made knock-offs.

  • This is why we need tariffs, people!

  • It's time to bring back those high-quality,

  • made-in-America insults.

  • Likehornswoggler.”

  • That's a real word.

  • Look it up.

  • I'm not hornswoggling you.

  • Wait, what was I talking about?

  • Oh, right.

  • How the US is the bully in this trade scenario.

  • Now I know you're probably thinking,

  • Wait, isn't China the big dirty cheater here?”

  • But how could that be?

  • China has just released a white paper on the trade war

  • proving that it's right.

  • Using facts.

  • That's right folks, Chinese state-run media

  • wants you to know that this white paper includes real facts.

  • Presumably to distinguish it from all the previous white papers,

  • like the one about how China has made

  • remarkable progressin human rights.

  • It's like when Domino's Pizza started advertising,

  • Now made with real cheese!”

  • And they were hoping you would think,

  • oh goody!”

  • But you were actually thinking,

  • Wait, what did they use before?

  • And should I even be eating this now?”

  • But just because a pizza contains real cheese,

  • doesn't mean it also contains real meat.

  • So while China's new white paper on trade

  • may contain some real facts,

  • it's a bit lacking in others.

  • Like the facts about China

  • relentlessly dumping products on the US,

  • forcing technology transfer,

  • and stealing America's intellectual property.

  • But it's not about whether the white paper is true,

  • or partly true, or the pepperoni is actually rat meat.

  • The point is, you shouldn't worry.

  • Because China is looking out

  • for the world in the face of US aggression.

  • It says “[The US] has become the greatest source of uncertainty

  • and risk for the recovery of the global economy,”

  • but “[China has] the support of

  • all countries in the world that reject protectionism,

  • unilateralism and hegemony."

  • Yeah, that's right.

  • The Chinese Communist Party

  • is standing up for the rest of the world,

  • using its totally fair debt traps.

  • And my favorite Chinese state run media, the Global Times,

  • said this week that in the US-China trade war,

  • China is honest and principled

  • and a major trade power with intensive strengths.

  • No one can take us down.”

  • But President Trump may have other ideas.

  • Not about any country in particular, of course.

  • Virtually everywhere socialism or communism

  • has been tried it has produced suffering corruption and decay.

  • Socialism's thirst for power leads to expansion,

  • incursion and oppression.

  • All nations of the worlds should resist socialism

  • and the misery that it brings to everyone.”

  • That's misery to everyone in general,

  • not necessarily everyone in particular.

  • Oh, c'mon!

  • There's lots of countries

  • where people are suffering from socialist policies.

  • That's better.

  • So what do you think?

  • Leave your comments below.

  • And before you go,

  • now is the time when I answer questions from you!

  • The loyal members of the China Uncensored 50-cent army

  • who support the show on the crowd funding website Patreon.

  • David Blatt asks,

  • What is the impact of Hong Kong

  • handing over sovereignty of the train station in Kowloon

  • that links it to PRC;

  • and what is their reasoning for this suspicious occurrence.

  • That's another step in the Chinese Communist Party's plan

  • to change one country, two systems

  • the policy where Hong Kong gets to keep freedoms

  • unimaginable in the rest of China

  • into one country, one system

  • where things are much more harmonious.

  • Losing a piece of Hong Kong territory at the train station

  • and having it be administered under Mainland Chinese law

  • is a small but meaningful step toward that.

  • It would have been unthinkable ten years ago.

  • But bit by bit,

  • Hong Kong's freedoms are vanishing.

  • In this case, in the name of convenience.

  • But so far,

  • the high-speed rail line doesn't seem to be

  • as popular as the government thought.

  • Thanks for you question David.
