It already is. That train of thought has been around since the PLA got their asses kicked in the Sino-Viet war in 78'. The reason its still banned so heavily is because that would imply that there's some fucker that should be upending the CPC after they end the USA.
>in re translation bullshit...
I think its a poem (or a poor attempt as one), ironically written in Song Ci style (think similar to freeverse) because its easy for self proclaimed literati to fucking make a poem with no rhythm and flow limits unlike more rigid formats. It's also some retard combining multiple different historical references together badly....
Anyways, additional context: The person referenced in this drawing, Cao Fengze, is a psuedonym(?) for a Qinghua (think Standford/Harvard) medical doctor who is basically shitting on the self-hating Chinese (think white liberals who kiss BLM's feet). My understanding is that this is also someone who wasn't instantly gulag'd because the whole muh trump trade war thing was going on and the CPC wants to wean the Chinese populace off of looking at the west like psuedo-gods with shit like this.
>In 2016, in response to the question "Why do most milk in many regions outside of mainland China do not have straws and instant noodles do not have forks", a Tsinghua doctor introduced the fact that the retail industry in mainland China is the actual reality, and strongly refuted those who adore foreigners and foreigners. Thoughts reveal the double standards that some people treat the same thing. The author Cao Fengze has long used his real name to promote mainstream ideas on Zhihu, focusing on fighting against reverse nationalism and historical nihilism, and has won the praise of many Zhihu users.
tl;dr its some asshole on twitter who's trying to fight fetishizing white people.
More of their work is here:
It reads as follows. Greentext is explanation of line above
Born with hot blood (stubborn/drive) (and to grow) fat from spring grass,
>Line from a poem from Cao Feng Ze
Even in death (your) heroic spirit guards the nine provinces
>Nine provinces refers to china proper (without manchuria, inner mongolia, Xinjiang, Tibet) and is now equated with China as a cohesive political entity.
There is no dread from death in service to the people
>Some maoist era lines so he doesn't get nuked by the ministry of culture for subversion
Who is to challenge the great deeds done in history?
>This is slightly modified line from 《破阵子·为陈同甫赋壮词以寄》, any well read person who know their Song dynasties prose (hint: Not my ass, I prefer Tang dynasty and earlier literature for their flow) will understand the patriotic connotations of the last verse. I want to say this poem specifically was required reading for the 3rd year of high school. Specifically I think it was book B for literature class, but the curriculum has changed since I last read that shit.
Literary criticism of the poem:
I rate this a shitty 3/10. Easy to understand words, no real flow between the stanzas and the words, Maoist era propaganda phrases linked with Song dynasty Confucian thought. This isn't a poem for literate people, it's a chant for uneducated fucking idiots who know how to write but don't understand the true goal of literature. I am no doctorate in medicine but I can do better.
Also there's a fucking alcohol commercial in the bottle LOL. It''s like the old spice of alcohols in China, and their motto is "(To) drink out (re: smell like) an odor of manliness.
>media unrelated I need mental help.
