Targets dissidents who dispute country’s history or criticize ruling Communists.
China’s Communist government has launched a new app that encourages citizens to report dissidents for expressing “mistaken opinions” on the Internet.
The new platform will target anyone who criticizes the dictatorship’s ruling CCP, disputes the official version of the country’s history or engages in “misinformation.”
The new website and app was proudly unveiled by China’s Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC), with authorities calling on users to play an “active role” in helping to identify “malicious people distorting facts and confusing” others.
“For a while now, some people with ulterior motives…have spread historically nihilistic false statements online, maliciously distorting, slandering and denying Party, national and military history in an attempt to confuse people’s thinking,” the announcement said.
“We hope that most internet users will play an active role in supervising society…and enthusiastically report harmful information.”
As Didi Rankovic notes, “It’s also unsurprising because it comes ahead of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Chinese Communist Party (CPP), when messages and narratives will have to be kept particularly “clean.”
China already operates an onerous social credit score system that bans people from using transportation and engaging in other basic functions of society if they commit minor infractions like jaywalking or buying too much junk food.
Given that social media mobs in the west, routinely aided by journalists, already conduct witch hunts that lead to people being socially ostracized, deplatformed and left unemployed for expressing “mistaken opinions,” are we really that better off than Chinese dissidents?

China is now stealing ideas from the DNC.

Maybe working hand in hand? I have no doubt the dims are salivating over this.
Biden’s forming a commission to study the CCP plan.
I thought they already had Twitter and Fakebook in China.
Sounds like something the leftist screw worms in CA would do.
Oh, they do. This is just an ‘added bonus’ from the CCP.
How soon till it’s here? My guess: Not long.
Call it ‘The Karen App’?
And the DNC stole them from the Nazis.
Probably bought the code from them!.................
Is the app named KarenCCP?
Good thing we are a capitalist country. We have Google, twitter, Facebook and YouTube to do that for us and still make a buck.
That will reduce your social score, and as soon as they chicoms eliminate cash, enable the dictators to take money from your account.
It will come here a few years later, if the dems are still in charge.
A monetary version of “cancel culture”.
Wrong speak will literally cost you.
Coming to America!
