Why Didn't Yao Ming Also Sleep?

The former Chinese NBA star Yao Ming was appointed by the Chinese communist party to be a member of the CPPCC (Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference). Yao Ming is also a student at Shanghai Jiao Tong University at present, and at same time conducting his wine business.

Having all those duties to attend to, Chinese bloggers commented on these photos:

"Why did 'Delegate Yao' not sleep?"

"Please have a look: the back of those chairs are so low, even if 'Delegate Yao' slid down in his seat he would still not be able to rest his back properly; but think about it everyone, Yao is a star, and a tall man, if one takes photos, doesn't matter from which angle, one cannot miss Yao. If Yao was caught sleep, what kind of news would we get? ...!  Well, Yao made the right decision, did not sleep, but Yao is dreaming with his eyes open, if you check the photos carefully..."

The South China Morning Post has reported that thousands of Christians in an impoverished county in rural southeast China have swapped their posters of Jesus for portraits of Xi Jinping as part of a local government poverty-relief programme that seeks to “transform believers in religion into believers in the party”.

 

The atheist Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is worried that people who have religious beliefs will not allow their morals to be corrupted by the CCP, and under Xi has tightened its grip on religious freedom throughout the country.

 

Qi Yan, chairman of the Huangjinbu people’s congress, said: “Many poor households have plunged into poverty because of illness in the family. Some resorted to believing in Jesus to cure their illnesses, but we tried to tell them that getting ill is a physical thing and that the people who can really help them are the Communist Party and General Secretary Xi.”

Qi also said: “Many rural people are ignorant. They think God is their saviour … After our cadres’ work, they’ll realise their mistakes and think: we should no longer rely on Jesus, but on the party for help.”
