This We Wuz Phoenicians thing isn’t unique to Taleb. Almost a decade ago, I
read another woman making the same claim in another book. I want to say it
was Nonie Darwish, but it may be someone else. The writing was forgettable, a

Blue checkists maintain shared blacklists. Once you run afoul of one, everyone
else using it will have you pre-blocked. A more conspiratorial minded individual

Communists didn’t invent simplified characters out of the air. Rather they were

Downward social mobility was what they wanted to arrest, and to prevent it, they

Long story short, Manchus by the Xinhai revolution were a destitute urban
underclass in China’s cities. The modern qipao was created by them and
adopted by the Han population at large as part of the global sartorial trend of
women increasingly dressing like sluts in the 20th cent

That the qipao was created by Manchu whores is part of why the Hanfu
movement has rejected anything that vaguely hints of the Qing. When I call them
whores, I mean literal prostitutes. The form hugging qipao was created by
Manchu (well qiren) prostitutes to solicit customers.

Although the qipao is traditionally associated with China, it is primarily a early
20th century interpretation that has somehow become associated with China
and “traditional” values by the Chinese themselves even though it is anything but
traditional.

In order to show off the petticoat underneath. Although this was worn by Han
women, this style or anything dated beyond the early 18th century is never worn
by any Hanfu enthusiasts. This is because the movement is an explicit rejection
of the qipao and by extension the Qing.

A collection of late 19th century photographs of women wearing Hanfu, though
slightly changed. The mamian skirt is back again in vogue. The biggest
difference is in the design of collar, having abandoned the y collar for a
“Manchu” style. Sleeves are big but cut shorter.

Here is a collection of early 18th century Yongzheng period meiren paintings
depicting women wearing Hanfu. No mamian skirts here, but the chang ao, with
more popup collars that were in vogue by the late Ming remain.

Here is a girl from Billibilli who has an expansive collection of Hanfu I’ve ever
seen. Her collection is notable in that it is very period authentic, and mad
expensive. Boatloads of Minghuatang with skirts starting at 2500rmb and tops at
5000 rmb and up.

The evidence for this is that there is no Qing period Hanfu being worn by anyone
at all. The rejection of the qipao and Manchu aesthetic influences is so complete
that Hanfu, at least for everyone involed, disappears at the end of the 17th
century. Even though Hanfu itself didnt

That subtext being a legacy of Xinhai. Hanfu is explicitly anti-Qing and can be
construed as anti-Manchu. This is made very clear in that the dominant sartorial
trends in the Hanfu movement span from Han (rarely), Tang, Song, and
particularly Ming.

For 99.99% of the girls who wear Hanfu, it’s just a pretty dress to take cute
selfies. Ascribing nationalist or supremacist agendas to them is a stupid waste of
time. However, that doesn’t mean it didn’t have any political subtext.

Oh? Are we playing semantic games to redefine words now? Hanfu has racial
connotations in the very name. Wearing qipao is explicitly verboten. That the
CCP renamed it as Huafu was a deliberate choice to make it “inclusive” and
trying it to attach it to a broader Chinese identity.

This is the United Front subverting Han racialism and wearing it’s skin as a

Among all the photos in the link, there is actually only one single image of a
group of women actually wearing Hanfu. Aside from the qipaos, everything else
is a cheaply made costume. This isn’t an example of the United Front pushing
Chinese nationalism via stealth.

Another obvious tell is how half the women who showed up to the CCP
approved version of Hanfu are dressed in Qipaos, a major nono. That and the
majority of the costumes, and they are costumes, are ahistoric fantasy imagined
by a clueless middle aged party apparatchik.

Major difference, Han is the racial-ethnic identifier of the Chinese race. Hua is a
cultural. Think of the difference between what it means to be British and what it
means to be English. The Party rather than supporting Han nationalism, is
watering it down and defanging it.

The CCP isn’t supporting the Hanfu movement here so much as it is subverting
it. A textbook case of the party trying to stay out in front and guide social
movements, followed by consolidate and surrender. The first tell is that the Party
has renamed Hanfu as Huafu.

That doesn’t make them any smarter though, at this post quickly demonstrates.
Just more sleezy. #Hanfu is not being used as a tool by the United Front Works
Department and it’s pretty obvious why if you had a clue about both the
aesthetics of the Hanfu movement and CCP.

The western journospooktank nexus that gets its funding and raison d’etre from
intelligence agencies, defense contractors, and sundry governments are quite
more adept at the practice than the CCP. Their finger puppetry network of
“awareness” raising is more subtle.

For the Chinese Communist Party, which already has full media hegemony, it is
creating sock puppet media organizations that pretend to be independent but in
reality tow the party line. The problem is that the Communist Party, already
having media hegemony, is bad at disguising it

The United Front is just a fancy way of describing political finger puppetry. For
leftists out of power, it is simply placing entryist cadres into various social organs
in order to subvert them and retarget political messaging to appear as if coming
from multiple vectors.

The degree of cluelessness of the China bloviating community in the West is
truly remarkable. The so-called United Front, the new boogie man du jour, is
nothing but a sick joke because the Communist Party cant create effective
propaganda targeting Westerners.
