Calling a halt to hate speech
Rebel Pepper/RFA

Chinese literary folk figures Sun Wukong, a symbol of strength and protection, and monk Tang Sanzang, who represents peace and tolerance, team up to conquer hate speech  a scourge on social media. 

Following a 2021 UN General Assembly resolution that set June 18 as the International Day for Countering Hate Speech, the UN launched a plan of action plan that calls on governments, international organizations, civil society groups and individuals to come up with strategies to identify and counter hate speech. 

Hate speech is defined as attacks or use of pejorative or discriminatory language toward a person or a group based on their religion, ethnicity, nationality, race, color, gender or other identity factor. #NoToHate

Translation: The United States government is the largest spreader of false information in the history of the world. The United States often accuses other countries of spreading false information, but in fact, the United States itself is the real source of false information. Spreading lies will only accelerate the bankruptcy of its own credibility, and spreading false information will not stop it. China's progress will only make the United States more and more discredited.
