The "reasonable" face of China's state-run TV unleashed a rant against foreigners, and his comments went unpunished

HONG KONG, China — When the buttoned-up host of a TV program that is supposed to showcase intelligent dialogue with foreigners begins calling foreigners “trash,” “spies” and “bitch,” you might think that the host’s job would be in trouble. Not so for Yang Rui, the usually prim and stolid host of “Dialogue,” a high-profile English-language show on China’s state-controlled CCTV International. His program is intended to be part of China’s soft-power mission to the rest of the world.

In a recent post on Weibo, China’s equivalent of Twitter, he unleashed a rant following the announcement of a crackdown against illegal foreigners in Beijing that so deeply alarmed expats — including former guests on Yang’s show — that some have begun calling for a boycott against his program.

In his tweet, as translated by Brendan O’Kane, Yang called for China’s Ministry of Public Security to “clean out the foreign trash” and “protect innocent girls,” urging the public to root out “foreign spies who find a Chinese girl to shack up with.” Most viciously, he celebrated the expulsion of American reporter Melissa Chan, calling her a “shrill foreign bitch. We should make everyone who demonizes China shut up and f**k off,” he concluded.:devil:

(Melissa Chan is a rather hot bitch) :hearts:

Doesn't surprise me. Asian attitudes towards foreigners/westerners are complex to say the least, even among those who teach English or do business with a lot of foreigners/westerners.

WowWow

It's ironic and hilarious how China needs to reclaim their very own trash from other countries first before they're the ones fit to talk

How fucked up must your own country be if you think you would be better off living as an illegal immigrant in a communist state?

Last time I checked, that lady is not 'China'.
It's hilarious people always forget one's opinions are not always with what the majority of people think in the same country.

My own experience of the Chinese "trash" you are speaking of is that they are incredibly intelligent, hard working and motivated people that contribute far more to society than those 'born citizens' who sit around all day, living on benefits, popping out kids for the state to look after.

I know which 'group' I would rather send to China.

I also love how hypocritical you're being by judging China's this one lady's views whilst spouting pretty much the same shit yourself.
