The Daily Wire today came very late to the party with a news item about Wolf Warrior 2. And by late, I mean very, very late: the party was over like two years ago, when the movie was released (2017). Perhaps though, part of the piece they described, which they linked to, contained new or breaking material. In honesty, I didn’t read the linked article, and that’s not what this post is about.
I wrote about Wolf Warrior 2 several months ago after seeing it on Netflix, in a post Brainwashing Media. The movie was very clearly propaganda for China, against the West.
What I didn’t know at the time, and do now, thanks to the Daily Wire is the tagline of the movie:
Anyone who offends China, no matter how remote, must be exterminated.
Just think about the components of that tagline.
- Anyone. It doesn’t matter who you are, what your job is, no matter how influential or otherwise you might be.
- offends. In this day and age of political correctness and offence-seeking-victims, all of us sane people know how ridiculous and easily manipulated ‘offence’ is as a standard.
- no matter how remote. i.e. everywhere (or perhaps ‘for every slight, no matter how small’).
- exterminated. Not reasoned with, not taught a lesson, wiped out.
Now maybe you think I’m being melodramatic. It’s a movie right? Would I be saying the same thing if it was released by Hollywood?
No, no I wouldn’t. However, this movie isn’t released by China or the Chinese people but by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). I’m confident in saying that every single word of the script, every byte of promotional data was all funded, vetted and approved by multiple people in the CCP. Especially considering the film featured 32 real tanks and aircraft. That doesn’t happen without connections and approvals.
And if this is what they are wanting to portray in a movie, I’d also consider it to be their plan in every other sphere. Check out this video if you want to see the extent by which the CCP is willing to go in destroying it’s enemies.
