New York Times Gushes Over ‘Hip’ Style of Communist Dictator Xi Jinping

The newspaper of record has now gone on record promoting the “cool” fashion sense of China’s communist dictator Xi Jingping. The writer of the New York Times piece, Joy Dong, extols the “cadre look” with a splash of red.

The author, reportedly a former employee of the Chinese Communist propaganda machine Phoenix TV, applauded the “dull blue jacket, oversize trousers…and small briefcase” as the opposite of what would normally be the look young Chinese would want to emulate.

The article details the “dull look” as one that “countless officials” now favor, perhaps to get ahead in the notoriously regimented Chinese Communist Party. Xi is up for another five years as head of the party when about 2,300 delegates meet next month to decide.

The Times goes so far as to describe the dictator as currently a “fashion influencer.”

The image portrayed by Xi is seen by some younger Chinese with ambition as suggestive of a stable career ladder and even the Communist version of being “preppy.”

The article quotes a 21-year-old electrical engineering student, Yang Zhan, as believing the look is “more dignified and poised” than clothing with fashion labels.

This is hardly a first for the Times. The paper has notably taken a hard-line stance against those in Hong Kong who protested the rise of draconian Communist rule.

Media outlets report that several on the Times staff previously held positions with the Chinese Communist Party-run China Daily, the mouthpiece of the dictatorial regime.

The National Pulse revealed that many prominent news organizations, including the New York Times, CNN, and Reuters, took part in what is described as a “Marxism journalism school.” This was reportedly done in collaboration with the Chinese Communist Party.

It also came to light last year that China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs paid for trips to the country by several U.S. journalists — on the surface as a way to better understand the country. Is there any doubt they were financed to gain favorable coverage?

Nevermind the well-chronicled cultural and some believe physical genocide ongoing in the country’s west. And overlook the iron-fisted reaction to dissent and even questioning authority in the mildest manner. What’s important is a sense of fashion, and that’s what Xi Jinping portrays.
