People who can't find jobs in the US and Europe come to China to grab our money, engage in human trafficking and spread deceitful lies to encourage emigration."</strong></p> <p><strong>"Foreign spies seek out Chinese girls to mask their espionage</strong> and pretend to be tourists while compiling maps and GPS data for Japan, Korea and the West. We kicked out that foreign bitch and closed Al Jazeera's Beijing bureau. We should shut up those who demonise China and send them packing," Mr Yang wrote.</p> <p>He urged the Public Security Bureau to <strong>concentrate its efforts on the Beijing "disaster zones" of Wudaokou, where many students live, and Sanlitun, a bar district and shopping area popular with expatriates.</strong></p> <p>Mr Yang's rant comes as Beijing authorities have launched a 100-day campaign to "clean out" foreigners living or working illegally, <strong>amid online fury over the bad behaviour of some foreign residents</strong>. A recent online video showed a man, reportedly a British <strong>tourist</strong>, sexually assaulting a young Chinese woman before being tackled by angry passers-by.</p> <p>The campaign against illegal foreigners <strong>has a giant fist as its logo</strong>, and foreigners are now required to carry passports and accommodation registration documents at all times.</p> <p>Remember, Yang Rui is the host of a national government sponsored TV show with the purported aim of diplomacy and oped discussion!! lololol For those who don't know, its this guy: <img src="http://img.dl.e.weliveinchina.com/_outimages/98617B60A1C9077E2C1D2F46170B5F06/536/WMDEditor/2/2012/5/21/536_100020120521144422216305-2.jpg" alt="alt text" /></p>

    actually, uncle DB, this isn't funny.

    I was in Beijing in 2004 for the anti-japanese protests.

    The locals fucked some shit up, I can tell you - including a shitload of LEGITIMATE VISA HOLDING JAPANESE BUSINESSES and of course, Beijing po-po.

    Once the ball gets rolling on this, if it really did happen, it would be every (foreign) man for himself.

    lol... yes DD - firstly, the station would apologize, then a gov rep for that branch of the media would apologize, then the offender would be fired. Then he would be forced to apologize on his twitter/weibo account, before taking a 5 year hiatus from work, hoping that one day, someone wold forget all about it and he could settle down into a back office job for a local radio station somewhere in remotest Gansu.

    even getting support somehow.

    Tara, he is getting support because were the government to admit that he did something wrong, they would lose huge amounts of face for allowing him to hold the position he does, as a "talk show host" on the State Run Media's only English language channel - and for such a long time. Admitting the guy doesnt like foreigners in general would cast doubt on the credibility of all his past "work" and make CCTV the laughing stock (again).

    Lol, this is CCTV 9 - the station to supposedly "foster and develop good relations with foreigners and foreign countries". More than one person would have to go down if YR does.

    CCTV and the gov are now in damage control mode. Overtime. The threat of a lawsuit against Custer (Yang Rui has no hope of winning) is designed to invoke fear in other negative commenters to get them to shut up. (It will fail - Barbara Streisand Effect)

    Well, since this is such a massive fail no matter how you look at it, the gov have no choice but to downplay it and defend his position. Hopefully, living in this viral age, it will not work. But perhaps it will :/

    I do think it's nice that Chinese senior citizens spend more time gossiping in the park than watching TV. The U.S. elderly population could learn a thing or two.

    Is a radio shock-jock, not a state sponsored tv host for a station representative of national policy and aimed at "fostering harmony" with foreigners. Bill though....yeah, I guess hes on tv, but state sponsored? endorsed?

    @Lao Lee

    and no (government) appology would be needed

    you are right. apology would be an admission of guilt and thus cause (more) loss of face.

    ... which is why Chinese government tend (or tended) to very tightly monitor and control idiots in the media (or public), who is likely to "disappear" should he/she was found saying anything wrong (or rather, right) ... my guess of the situation therefore, is that China now believes that it is in a position of being feared, and they do not need to be worrid about what other countries think ...

    Good post at the economist. I like how they totally capture the false dichotomy asserted by the Chinese (gov?) - that foreigners are either gods or monsters. This concept that there are no "normal" foreigners......after all; how could they be normal? They are foreign!

    Yang Rui is not really doing the interests of the ccp...isnt...

    I agree - but they cant publicly tell him to shut up either,so their only choice is to tacitly support him.

    People who can't find jobs in the US and Europe come to China to grab our money

    马克, I think that's complete baloney. Who is going to employ an expensive foreigner to do the job that a much cheaper local could do? Only a moron.

    The only jobs that foreigners do in China are the ones that the Chinese cant do right. I can assure you, that as soon as local people do as good a job with those (limited number) of positions that foreigners do better, the foreigners will be replaced.

    There is no hard labour based job in China that foreigners are coming in to take. 马克, if you believe that foreigners are flooding into China driving wages down and living like sardines in tenement halls, you are mistaken - but you can bet your ass they will be (but they will not be white).

    Of course, there will always be doting mothers and fathers that DEMAND their child learns English from a white american or uk citizen, and are willing to pay good money for it. What are you going to do, blame those parents for being "racist" (against Chinese "English" teachers) and not giving local people fair opportunity? lol.... please.

    LaoLee, please do not encourage 马克‘s flawed thinking by implying "you did it 200 years ago in America, its our turn now" - it is so nauseatingly low class. Besides, foreigners living in China currently are a totally different breed to the settlers of the old colonies.

    Your comment about Europeans going to America to make money will only bolster his viewpoint.

    周一,杨锐发给媒体一份声明,就其微博内容引发的争议进行了解释。

    以下是声明原文:

    长期以来,许多中国年轻人都想当然地认为西方人都是知书达理的,因为这些西方人来自工业国家中的法治社会。大多数西方人的确很友好。他们老老实实地在中国旅行、做生意和谋生。然而有些西方人却并非如此,比如从最近的一些视频中看到的,一名外籍男子在北京的大街上企图猥亵一名中国年轻女子,以及俄罗斯大提琴手在中国火车上粗鲁地嘲弄一名中国中年妇女。

    新媒体强大的的传播效应意味着,一些孤立的事件可能引起公众强烈的反应。在看过这些事件后,我将这些外籍人士称作“洋垃圾”,我认为如果他们违反了中国的法律,就应该受到法律的制裁。我想把他们与外国社区中那些遵守和尊重中国文化和社会规则的安静的大多数区别开来。找出这些洋垃圾可以有助于保护正派的西方人的名誉。我在5月16日发布的微博是一个提醒。无论是西方人还是中国人,都不能凌驾于法律之上。

    这篇微博是我看过网上视频后的情绪的反映,我使用了一个不成功的例子,在我看来,最近被逐离境的这个群体对中国和中国人充满敌意。这条微博表达的只是当时的反应,仅此而已。由于对我所说的“泼妇”存在误解,有些人对我发出了更严厉的指责,如果你在金山词霸上或是外语教学与研究出版社出版的《汉英词典》(第三版,2010年1月)查一下这个词,你会发现,这个词应该被译为“Shrew”(泼妇,悍妇)。

    对于那些愿意倾听我解释的人,我希望这份声明能让此事平息下去。
