Chinese Gearing Up Anti-US Propaganda Campaign

With the trade war between the US and China suddenly erupting after a 5-month ceasefire, CCTV 6, the movie channel of China's leading state television broadcaster, aired three anti-American movies last week, reported What's On Weibo.

The three movies are Korean war films: Heroic Sons and Daughters (1964), Battle on Shangganling Mountain (1954), and Surprise Attack (1960), which aired about one week after President Trump raised an existing 10% tariff on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods to 25%.

All last week, anti-American propaganda flourished across the country, with the slogan "Wanna talk? Let's talk. Wanna fight? Let's do it. Wanna bully us? Dream on!" going viral on Chinese social media platforms.

With a national economy about as stable as a house of cards, massive losses in their ag section (pork fever) and their supply of oil in jeopardy - about all the Chinese can do right now is bluster.

Since the US is the CHICOM's largest trading market - the bluster may not last all that long either. Only time will tell.

The food shortage is going to bite them in the ass and mostly help out US farmers. Since there is only a world limited supply of food even if China buys out other markets (especially if they buy out other markets) prices will jump.
These days of dust
Which we've known
Will blow away with this new Son

But I'll kneel down wait for now
And I'll kneel down
Know my ground
