Propaganda works.

The American accent in that video is most striking. Here is the thread it references. Since 2018, tangible evidence has come out to counter most of everything written here by a China Daily employee.

If we remember back to the Caliphate, it was the western accents and their social media presence that drew a lot of foreign fighters to Syria and into the ranks of ISIS. It was the accents that instilled fear across the globe. We should rightfully fear that video: it’s working.

Do you think the wumao army from ‘Kentucky’ activating around @x_feroza knows that Andrew Yang 🧢 is a Taiwanese-American?
