Peng Shuai Wins Tennis Gold, Arrogant Mother Slaps Security – digg china

Chinese female tennis player Peng Shuai wins gold at the 16th Asian Games in Guangzhou.

In mid-October, a young man driving a Volkswagen hit two girls at a Hebei University while taking his girlfriend home. The girls flew in the air and landed on the car’s windshield. Instead of stopping, he continued to drive away. On his way out, security guards and students managed to stop him from leaving the school. Confronted by the crowd, he dared them to sue him, saying “my dad is Li Gang”, a public security bureau deputy director for the Beishi district of Baoding city in Hebei province. One of the girls died and police reports that the young man, Li Qiming, was drunk. His arrogance made Chinese netizens furious and “my dad is Li Gang” soon became an internet meme.

Following Li Gang Gate: My daughter is Peng Shuai

On the 23rd, Chinese golden flower Peng Shuai overcame her opponent to win the Women’s Tennis Singles gold medal. However, while Peng Shuai was on the court achieving this, her mother was revealed by a volunteer to be off court making a scene.

The situation at the time was like this: While passing through the security inspection, Peng Shuai’s mother Zhang Bing was carrying a camera she did not know how to use (during the security inspection, those carrying cameras must take a photo facing the ground; this process Tian Ma [a photographer] has personally experienced before at the Asian Games), so the security inspectors [who are volunteers] became suspicious, and when a security inspector helping her turn on her camera took off the lens cap and threw it on the table, Zhang Bing slapped this security inspector. She also said, “so what if I hit you, my daughter is Peng Shuai”. The photos show: Left image is a photo provided by a netizen of the scene (at the time wasn’t sure if it was Peng’s mother or not), right image is a photograph of Peng Shuai’s mother Zhang Bing at Changsha being interviewed by a reporter that was found through human flesh search. Conclusion: The person making a scene was without a doubt Peng Shuai’s mother.

Amidst netizen discussions, I’ve seen many [2010 Guangzhou Asian Games event] volunteers post comments condemning Peng Shuai’s mother, with one netizen saying: “Setting aside how the armed police [security inspectors] treated your camera lens cap, raising your hand to hurt someone shows what kind of character you have. Such a heavy slap, the sound and swiftness I remember clearly. If you really are Peng Shuai’s mother, then she must be proud to have such a just and fair mother to help her raise her profile and name-recognition in society.”

However, in other places, complaints about the low/poor characters of the volunteers also frequently appeared, for example: “Given the constant conflicts/problems between the event volunteers and the media since the beginning of the event, some volunteers have already tarnished the very word ‘volunteer’.”

With regards to the matter of Peng Shuai’s mother, at present there has not been any official confirmation, and more information is required about the particular details. Separately, Chinese tennis athlete Peng Shuai’s mother Zhang Bing carried the torch during the Hunan Xiangtan leg of the 2008 Olympic torch relay.

Comments from Mop:


Looking forward to follow-up reports…


We are already immune [to this kind of news]…thanks to Li Gang.


If it were me, I would just slap her back, my son is Li Gang!


This woman, this character,
You can easily tell she has never gotten an education!
Such low character!


What I want to say is…

her daughter brings glory to the country, while she is piling on shame for the country!


It’s not like her daughter is that famous. This kind of behavior from her is truly unbearable. So what if your daughter is famous, it doesn’t mean you yourself are some great person. A face of ugliness~~~


Where some people get their superiority complex is just this ridiculous.


Sigh. Chinese society is just like this. Even if one doesn’t have any ability [status, power, importance], as long as one’s family member has ability, then one must be a more arrogant.


This is the Heavenly Kingdom, it is very normal.


Zhuang B, [she's] just a lousy Asian Games champion, who fucking cares. Good thing it was the armed police, who have discipline and self-control. If it were an ordinary person, they would’ve fucking knocked this cunt onto the ground. That’s why they say our education makes people into dogs.

While I’m at it, let me say something about the issue of character. First, not all volunteers volunteered, there are volunteers who were volunteered. Don’t examine others from the perspective of a god/saint, that will only make others despise you.


I like to ding these kind of posts the most.

North Korean Artillery Attack, Chinese Netizen Reactions – digg china

Smoke rising over Yeonpyeong island in South Korea after being hit by North Korean artillery rounds.

From Mop:

[The following are a collection of netizen comments selected by the original poster and included in the original post, without the netizens' names.]


China should temporarily reduce Diaoyu Islands activity to stop America from using South Korean to provoke North Korea and using Japan to contain China! China should concentrate its efforts, help North Korea, and when the time comes, help North Korea conquer South Korea in one stroke, realizing North and South [Korean] unification!


In this age of peace, it is still better to calmly negotiate, because in wars, those who suffer the most harm are the ordinary common people, while those who gain are only those politicians who stick their hands into the political whirlpool. If a politician really cares about the suffering of the common people, then please don’t adopt a war-like posture, as this kind of behavior will only increase the people’s resentment towards the rulers/government. Valuing one’s own people is the most important task for strengthening one’s political position! I am Chao Yongjun.


China and North Korea are switching from defense to offense. In the first half of the Cheonan Incident, the MD bangzi pissed off the two [China and North Korea]. In the middle, because of the Diaoyu Islands incident and the G20 Summit, everyone took a break. Now we’re entering the second half of the Cheonan Incident, so keep an eye on China and North Korea’s actions.


North Korea is simply niu, this is exactly what power from the barrel of a gun is, and China too should do this to little Japan a few times too.

[#5 was a repeat of #1]


Holding Americans’ thigh dreaming about a reunification, such a ridiculous South Korea.


Whoa, this is getting serious, how can they be playing with fire? And it [the news] is real too. The world is not stable now, it’s dangerous.


Kim II has that little assets and he’s going to go to war with South Korea?
His military doesn’t even have enough to eat.
I suspect that Kim II is just making a fuss, creating a little hostile/nervous atmosphere, making everyone’s economy slide a little.

[I] really suspect that Kim III, this guy is in Hong Kong taking short positions [on stock].

Kim III is in Hong Kong shorting stock,
his father fires some cannons,
father and son work together and get rich.


North Korea: Ballistic missile models include “Scud” (range 300 km), “Laodong-1″ [Chinese transliteration, not sure what is the normal English name] (550-600 km) ballistic missile, as well as a few “Nodong-1″ and “Nodong-2″ missles (range about 1300 km), “Taepodong-1″ (range 1500 to 2200 km) and “Taepodong-2″ (range 3750 to 6000 km) ballistic missiles.
Korea: 1978 American-made “Nike” large ground to air missiles serve as foundation, successfully developed two kinds of ground to ground ballistic missiles. 1997 America provides South Korean with 111 Block 1 type ground ballistic missiles, range of 165 km. Later, [America] again provides 110 Block IA M39 style missiles, range reaching 300 km, able to reach the Chinese interior from the 38th parallel.


Either there is a serious problem within North Korea [government] or Little Kim’s health is bad, and he is passing power [to his son].
Recently, from the shots fired at the 38th parallel killing South Korean soldiers, to the nuclear sites, and then to the artillery attack, there has been constant escalation, although [I think] it is to get international attention, to create a tense situation. Getting international attention allows it to negotiate prices [get concessions?]; creating tense situations can allow it to shift attention from internal conflicts/problems.
North Korea is indeed a strategic burden for China.


Ultimately, with the help of the People’s Liberation Army led by the great Chinese Communist Party, in the interest of world peace, for the stability and unity of the entire world’s people, from the principle of keeping in mind the interests of the entire universe’s people, it will ultimately be proven through investigation that it was a few North Korean temporary workers who were in the wrong place and at the wrong time firing the wrong cannons and trust the North Korean go-vern-ment will fairly and severely punish these temporary worker scum—-the Korean Peninsula is harmonious, the world is harmonious.

[In China, a lot of accidents and mistakes are often blamed on "temporary workers" so the company or organization itself escapes blame.]


Bastard North Korea, can’t you just stop and be good for a while? You obviously can’t defeat your schoolmate [South Korea] yet today you take a stick and poke your schoolmate, and tomorrow you’ll use your foot to kick to provoke [South Korea]. Bastard North Korea, trying to get other people’s attention, don’t drag in your dad and mom China into it. Every time you are outside bullying your little schoolmates around you, your dad and mom needs to go against its conscience to defend you. Every time you finish taking a shit [cause trouble], it is always China that has to help wipe your ass [clean up the situation]. Don’t you think you’ve caused enough trouble for China? Bastard North Korea.


I think it is the incited by the west [I don't think this means "the West" but I am not sure who it is referring to]. The west needs to develop dialogue with America more than the north. The north takes the west’s food, comes out and fires a few cannons, then says let’s have Six Party Talks. In the end, the west and America achieve another bunch of “trade” agreements. The West’s pressure is gone, and the rabble continue enjoying inflation expectations.


Little Kim obviously has nothing to lose.
If American dares to bomb North Korea,
North Korea will flatten Seoul.
Seoul is not 60 km away from the 38th parallel.
Little Kim is vicious/daring enough.
At worst, just go into the mountains and fight a guerrilla war.
He has the courage of [don't know who/what 太俎 is].
I approve/comment!


I think in the current situation of the Kim family completely siding/aligning with China, this instance of the northern bangzi artillery attack must’ve been been done with China being previously notified, and it is even possible that it was with China’s encouragement, the benefits being:

1. After America’s 600 billion quantitative easing, international hot money is eying China. If war happens on the Korean Peninsula, this hot money will think twice about entering China.

2. Domestic inflation has recently been out of control, so the go-vern-ment purposely slowing down the economy, lowering prices, especially the prices of international raw materials/commodities like oil, soybeans, and copper, which are 3 commodities that China relies mainly on imports, and are the three main sources of imported inflation. So if North Korea starts a war, the US Dollar must appreciate significantly, and these 3 commodities will necessarily drop in price significantly, contributing to a drop in prices across the board domestically [in China].

3. China’s current industrial rise has already reached a critical point. At the top, its direct competitors are Japan, Korea, and Europe. Through a North Korean war, it will throw Korea into chaos, disrupt Japan, and massively help the rise and global competitiveness of China’s domestic electronics, microchip, IT, automotive, and shipbuilding industries.
In short, as long as China does not directly deploy troops [get militarily involved], the benefits/advantages are many, and no matter how hot the flames of war burn, it will still first destroy Korea, and then destroy Japan, taking out these two forever wild wolves [no matter how well you treat it, it will never remember your kindness and be dangerous to you].

From KDS:

South and North Korea war breaks out!!!!!!!!!!

One of South Korea’s islands have been shelled by North Korean artillery, buildings were damaged, South Korea has fire back.

Will a full-on war happen?

Comments from KDS:


It has been many years since they’ve fought, it’s definitely time for a competition [for them to test each other]. emoticon


Good, let Fatty Kim and North Korea be wiped from the globe. emoticon


A full-on war is impossible. From the [South] Korean point of view, without America’s permission, they will not attack on their own; Even if it is a counterattack, the scale is also very limited. From the North Korean point of view, the probability of proactive provocation must be big, but they will not overestimate their abilities and be reckless, at most small-scale.


Starting a war during the Asian Games? Truly not giving the Heavenly Kingdom face. emoticonFatty III’s [Kim Jong-un] sure has some balls [sure is brave/daring].


The Heavenly Kingdom must not help Fatty Kim, with this kind of rogue state, you never know when they’re going to turn around and bite you too.


Even though it is again North Korean who is causing trouble first, it feels like it is America that really needs this kind of war.


MMD, The Gulf of Aden aliens are about to attack us, and we’re still having internal conflicts [among humans]. emoticonemoticonemoticon


All America lacks is a fire-starting opportunity [a trigger]. If they don’t deal with TG [the government], after a few more years, they won’t even be able to repay the interest on their national debt, so Fatty Kim doing this is detestable, clearly intent on dragging us under the water.


Does South Korea dare? Seoul is completely within North Korea’s artillery range. Without China’s approval, would America dare intervene?


As long as North Korea does not deploy ground forces and invade, South Korea would not dare start a full-scale war. What they’re afraid of are the tens of thousands of artillery aimed at Seoul, so if fighting breaks out, one attack, and South Korea is demolished, no suspense at all. The United States also doesn’t have the guts right now. Wait until they have finished their business in Iraq and Afghanistan and then see. Of course, they also have to see what China thinks, and consider the cost to South Korea.

North Korean Anchorwoman Ri Chun Hee Becomes Famous – digg china

North Korean anchorwoman Ri Chun Hee.

Recently, Chinese netizens have been greatly amused by North Korea’s famous news anchorwoman Ri Chun Hee…

From NetEase & Tiexue:

North Korean anchorwoman’s sonorous broadcasts become famous

On the 23rd, an exchange of fire occurred between South Korean and North Korea near their borders, attracting the attention of the entire world. After the exchange of fire, North Korean television stated that its territorial waters have been violated and that it will fight back, and North Korea’s “The People’s Announcer/Broadcaster” Ri Chun Hee’s sonorous voice one again shook the world. North Korea provides “special treatment” for its news anchorwoman.

The post title on Tiexue was: “North Korea’s anchorwoman becomes famous: Her voice is even more powerful than cannons!

The joke is that her voice is so frightening that it can scare North Korea’s enemies.

Here is another news report featuring Ri Chun Hee where she is like a mother full of anger criticizing her son when talking about South Korea but completely changes when talking about the North Korean leader Kim Jong-il.

Some more English information about Ri Chun Hee from PRI’s The World:

JASON STROTHER: There's a familiar face that greets North Koreans when they tune in to watch the news. An older woman, dressed in a traditional pink gown, bows to the camera before speaking.

RI CHUN HEE: [speaking Korean]

STROTHER: That's Ri Chun Hee. She appears at the top of every newscast. Her beat is the Dear Leader Kim Jong Il. She reports every public appearance Kim makes, and recites the praises he's said to receive from abroad. According to a profile in a North Korean magazine, Ri was born in 1943. She's worked as a reporter for nearly 40 years. Analysts say landing a news anchor job in North Korea isn't easy. You have to demonstrate ideological credentials and come from a trustworthy family just to get into journalism school.

BRIAN MYERS: Ri Chun Hee is an exception, in that she didn't go through the usual journalistic background, but instead, she kind of majored in drama.

STROTHER: Brian Myers analyzes North Korean propaganda at Dongseo University in Busan.

MYERS: That kind of background has stood her in good stead, I suppose because she has a very dramatic style of delivery.

STROTHER: Myers says there's a lot of showmanship that goes into North Korean broadcasting. He says news anchors use four distinct tones depending on what they're talking about. For instance, there's the lofty, wavering voice, used when praising the nation's leadership. That's Ri Chun Hee's forte.

RI CHUN HEE: [speaking Korean]

STROTHER: There's a staccato explanatory tone used for the weather. And then a more natural voice for uncontroversial news stories. But the one that's perhaps best known outside of North Korea is what Myers calls the invective tone.

MYERS: It's a hate filled voice. It kind of reminds me of what George Orwell was talking about in "1984," when he talked about the two-minute hate. It's a voice just laden with scorn and hatred; I'm not going to try to imitate it."

Comments from Tiexue:


Hearing her voice, it feels like she has gone crazy… does she take some drugs every time she records???


The big auntie is pissed…but her wording is very powerful.


Speaking passionately against the enemy, what’s wrong with that? Is she supposed to be like Xiao Shengyang and sound like a sissy?


Encountering this kind of thing, the word we hear most from our announcers/broadcasters/anchors is “protest”.

[Some Chinese netizens feel that the Chinese government never does anything, only protests.]


One word: Impressive.


Her eyes are always fixed on the notes/script, never once lifting her eyes…this kind of broadcaster interviewing in China would be instantly hired.


Brother Chun is powerful, Aunty Ri is powerful.


North Korea’s announcers always say, if the American Imperialists do this or that, North Korea will execute a powerful military attack…

China’s announcers always say [China] expresses regret and expresses protest.


China needs this kind of bold person too! I hope China’s news can have less regret, apology, protest and similar bullshit!


I’ve heard her broadcast for a military parade, my God, all of us guys fainted.

This is the broadcast the above netizen is talking about:
