I'm confused by modern tankies, what do CPP fanatics (in the west) see that's so great in China?

I can somewhat understand being enamored by communism pre '56, but now?? Doesn't look utopian whatever tinted glasses you have on.

Basically this + they fall for the CCP's propaganda:

  • The great firewall is to keep evil foreign political influence from destroying its "vibrant" political landscape, not at all to limit people's access to worldwide information!
  • There's nothing weird happening in the Xinjiang work camps. They're just protecting their privacy! You wouldn't want your secrets to great labor to be exposed either.
  • In the very, very, very rare occasion that they do admit something maybe not entirely good is happening to the Uyghur people, they'll brush it off as "Who cares? XYZ country is/was doing the same thing." like that makes it okay.
  • Pro-CCP people are already not a fan of most minorities. To them, oppression of LGBT-rights and xenophobic policies are seen as good and simply protecting their country's culture.
  • If you have any love for yourself, do not get them started on Hong Kong, Macau, Tibet, or Taiwan.

They channel their anti-american/western energy into China/Russia rather than anything productive or worthwhile.

Could use a "what's wrong with lemmy" wiki like we do for reddit. Do we have one?
