Fake Fakeness E-mail
City Life - Blogs & Columns
Written by Ian Clark
In this day and age we've grown accustomed to fakeness: Hollywood, computer games, television ads, makeup on females, joke news, soy meat, plastic everything....But now that the Chinese control more and more of visible world, we've uncovered something something bizarre: fake fakeness, lies about lies, nonsense made of nonsense.

For example, what is a "pirated disk"? It's a collection of Hollywood visual lies which are copied by lying Chinese. Hollywood complains about it, saying, "They're selling copies of our movies" - but listeners' curiosity must be piqued - are Hollywood movies themselves not disingenuous copies of life? In the same way, one can observe in today's China the unsuccessful imitation of Americans, who are themselves unsuccessful imitations of Europeans. For example, a "pizza" in America is an insult of the Italian original, which gets further insulted in China. Here, the pathetic pizza has to sit on the table without pizza sauce, without olive oil, and with stupid pineapple pieces spread on its head.

It begs tearfully for our help, but unfortunately God didn't give it a mouth with which to speak - nor even a crunchy crust with which to grumble. Also observe hardy canvas pants, which turned into sorry, thin "jeans" in America. They curl up in bedroom corners battered, whitewashed, acid-dunked and ground with stones. After washing up on toxic Shanghai shores, they've become so thin and tight they seem to be painted on women's legs - which are themselves painted with flowers, birds or other nonsense. Chinese jeans make tiny swings to the sound of stomping horseshoes, propped up on stilts like a clown. The quality, standard attire for working European men has now become one of China's many whores - Cheans.

But somehow these fake fakes are full of truth - at least to us European Whites. For instance, when we hear Blacks saying, "I don't have none of that," us being the logical animals we are tend to think, "Oh so you have some of that." In the same way, when Chinese make fake fakes, we actually start to think that maybe they have been made real now. They haven't been made real - but just. Their falsity becomes more patent, like how the filthy rich directors like Stephen Spielberg start to look like idiots when complaining of Chinese piracy. In the end, entertainment is just that. Why not let these peddlers of illusion fall into the abyss, pushed from the edge by mangy pirates? Maybe then society would be able to place their worship on more worthy things - things that might improve the real world for a change.

Quoting Cony:
Just a couple of questions:
How do you define White Europeans? Do the people of south France, south Spain, south Portugal, Italy belong to that group?
And do all the White Europeans speak perfect english even if their mother language is not english? How amusing...
And BTW the italian noodles could also be called a fake because they were copied from the chinese noodles. But it is actually nice to have both the italian and the chinese noodles, I would not like to miss any of them...


no, noodles were not "copied from the chinese". To say more would explode this topic. read more about the history of noodles. Pasta: When you think about it, pasta is not a particularly difficult dish to invent. Ever since mankind started consuming grains, one of the first steps was to make porridge or gruel, a dish that exists in virtually every culture worldwide. The logical next step is to make that into dough, which then could be roasted or baked (bread) or boiled (dumplings and noodles). Noodles which could be dried would have made a convenient food which could be kept a long time.

All Europeans are whites. especially Spaniards who are the melting point between north and mediterranian europeans (ice age) and unique in european history.

English: a rather insignificant language in mainland Europe. A third language and at best a second grade language, teached in schools (they start to teach it primary schools). Spanish, french and German are the most important languages. Oh and Spanish is the largest "western" language in the world. A fact that is mostly ignored (by english speakers :-D). Yes, a common European pupil speaks 10x better english than any chinese so called " english teacher/professor". Chinese just lack to grasp anything that is not Han.

The article does not claim that all Europeans have perfect English. It claims that most Europeans are part of a more logical, literal culture than that of Southeast Asia and Africa.
