Parody Video featuring the “Warrior Song”, dedicated to Chinese chengguan (City Management Law Enforcement); netizens’ reaction
Chengguan, or China’s city management and law enforcement personnel, are notorious in China for often brutally and inhumanely treating street vendors and tramps, sometimes by beating them and other times by destroying their businesses, and driving them away. Chinese people in chorus detests the powerful and sympathize with the bullied and the weak. THE WARRIOR SONG has been edited into another online creation that expresses such sentiments.
Caption: The unlicensed vendor was beaten into coma; his watermelons were smashed by chengguan. The onlookers surrounded the scene.
Below are selected comments on the video clip, all of which are in anonymity:
The magical nation is so damn tragic. This is the great river crab society! (Jing: River crab alludes to harmonious society, to which river crab sounds similar in Chinese. Harmonious society is viewed by Chinese netizens as a campaign for wiping out dissident opinion.)
That’s it. If China is at war with another nation, it should first consider deploying Chengguan, and will surely become invincible.
Along with the rhythm, it is so geili!(Jing: Geili , literally giving power, a Chinese Internet buzzword, means awesome.)
Song of Chengguan: Your dad (referring to oneself) is called chengguan. Your dad is in charge of the entire city. Whoever dares my power would be at least crippled, if not beaten to death!
I have said long ago that chengguan is not even worthy to be the lowest creature. I feel so even more after watching it. I believe such a situation has much to do with the so-called leaders from above. Look what kind of person they’ve hired! Many of them dregs in the society. Of course, they may account for only a small part. But it reflects a lot of problems that deserve introspection of those “leaders”: why too many people in today’s society have no good impression of chengguan at all…
The U.S. is shameless. It always instigates other nations into war and benefits from it, and it has the gall to judge others? So they are harmonious? You, Yankees! Every nation has scums in its functional departments. We will control the dregs on our own, just like what we do to our kids. How can you think we need you Yankees to intervene? Your motive is so ulterior.
Bullshit! Does the state have its way to control it? However hegemonic the Americans are, they are better than Chengguan.
