50 cents gang: We could laugh at you but we don’t want to give you money! lol.

What is 50 cents gang ?

The 50 Cent Party are Internet commentators (网络评论员, 網絡評論員, wǎngluò pínglùn yuán) hired by the government of the People’s Republic of China (both local and central) or the Communist Party to post comments favorable towards party policies in an attempt to shape and sway public opinion on various Internet message boards.The commentators are said to be paid fifty cent of RMB for every post that either steers a discussion away from anti-party or sensitive content on domestic websites, bulletin board systems, and chatrooms, or that advances the Communist party line.

Message to Aussie journalist from ABC:

Mate, Good on you! I just want to say…the way these Communist nutcases are behaving,  is the OPPOSITE of  “THE PERFECT Hong Kong CANTONESE” LOL. see my article (https://ceciliawyu.wordpress.com/2012/03/21/perfect-cantonese/) to see the other side of the picture! THIS is the reason why we had a 1000 yrs civil war between North v. South Chinese dynasties….LOOK at them! PLEASE…end this Madness! Free Liu Xiaobo! Thanks for letting me reblog! Feel free to Reblog anything of mine.

I have seen people gathering in Starbucks in Beijing, small groups praying over magazines to hide the fact that they just want to practice a religion? Why this religious intolerance? Is that a necessity of Communism or just that of a Dictatorship? 😦

Love this! Cecilia

Federal Way Conservative

An Australian ABC reporter does an investigation in China about the underground Christian movement there. He notices he’s being followed by the same group of people, and then confronts them. Their reaction is priceless.

I installed an add-on in my Firefox, gTranslate, and started going through the comments on YouTube. Most of the Chinese comments are vicious attacks on their state police and spy agencies, calling them scum, garbage, and the whole problem with China.

A few commenters chimed in that the Western media is trying to undermine the whole system of government in China, so that the West can feed like vultures on the chaos that will ensue.

The comments respond to these posts calling them “50 cents”. Of course, they can’t mean the American rap idol! Looking up the slang for that particular Chinese phrase, I discovered that there is something called the 五毛党 — the 50 cent…

      I used fed.way con. reblog for licencing reasons. see this: https://ceciliawyu.wordpress.com/creative-commons-licence-3-0/

      The source is: After being tailed by secret agents during an assignment for ABC TV’s Foreign Correspondent program, reporter Stephen McDonell decides to confront his shadows. They’re not happy. Foreign Correspondent’s investigation of China’s underground Christian boom is called ‘True Believers’ and airs in Australia on Tuesday May 17 at 8PM. It will be available internationally on our website soon after – http://www.abc.net.au/foreign

      Unfortunately the whole 50 cents gang is VERY TRUE…those who do not speak/read chinese may speculate what they are saying but there is no doubt they are active and very much alive in and out of The Great Firewall Wall of China.

      THE only people who deny 50 cents gangs are the ones making 50 cents rmb….writing about how they dont exist…….lol.

      This is ironic…indeed.

      As for Fed Way Conservative: It is not my place to comment on his politics. He is entitled to free speech and while I admire the achievements of Mr.Obama as a Peace Laureate, I also support Healthy, political critical thinking….I am a firm believer in: I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

      Unless the person is promoting violence to incite others to harm one another, then it is the responsibility of ALL to stand up to such bullies.

      Thanks for your comment.
