Just like Chinese netizens supported Syria against the Western media and the Visegrad 4 against the Western media, they are supporting Myanmar against the Western media. Through experience, they can now see the one-sided propaganda war being waged against the Buddhists of Myanmar by baizuo.
Despite being heavily criticized by the Western media over the Rohingya issue, Myanmar State Counselor and former Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi has gained popularity with Chinese netizens, who praised her defiance against “outside pressure while safeguarding her people’s interest.”
Suu Kyi had long been seen as a proxy of the West by nationalistic Chinese netizens due to her close relationship to the Western countries, but she has won cheers recently from the Chinese online communities who are routinely indignant over Western pressure on developing countries over issues concerning national security.
On news portals like guancha.cn and ifeng.com, Net users heap praise on Suu Kyi, calling her “a stateswoman who serves her people’s interest” and “a tough and wise woman who knows much better than Western politicians who make political correctness a business.”
