Let me introduce you guys the Chinese national treasure, Cao Ni Ma. It also has an enemy called He Xie. Every Chinese loves Cao Ni Ma which are filled in the Chinese society. However, they hate He Xie a lot and hope that one day it will come to extinction. They even composed a song for them. Below are the lyrics.
Translation of the Lyrics:
In that beautiful and distant desert
There lives a crowd of Cao Ni Ma
They are energetic and smart
While naughty and clever
They feel so free to live in that desert
Enduring the predicament with courage and stamina
Oh! Brave Cao Ni Ma
Oh! Fearless Cao Ni Ma
They defeated He Xie to protect thatch from being eaten
Since then, He Xie disappeared from that desert
I guess you must be confused, you must be wondering since when panda is replaced by Cao Ni Ma to become Chinese national treasure. Actually, Cao Ni Ma is an instantiation of the hatred towards communist party.
Cao Ni Ma is a homophone of Chinese foul language. In the lyrics, Cao Ni Ma is a simile to Chinese. That beautiful desert indicates China.
He Xie is a simile to the communist party. This song emerges because Chinese government enforced a great deal of censorship over the media. People in China can just make everything so ambiguous that it is hard to realize they are actually criticizing the party. He Xie is a homophone of harmony. Communist party in China always talks about harmony, though it is one party dictatorship. The party wants stable society and steady economy. Anything that is against stability and steadiness should be “harmonized”. In the eyes of Chinese, “Harmonization” means to accept every order the party gives out. If you transgress the order, you should be “harmonized”.
