100,000 CHINESE GOING TO THE WORLD CUP IN RUSSIA, WITH NO TEAM TO CHEER FOR Podcast – Jeff J Brown – China Rising

No team, no national glory, no nothing, yet for this year’s Football World Cup tournament in Russia, 100,000 Chinese still traveled there for the love of the game, their admiration of the host country and friendship with its people (http://en.people.cn/n3/2018/0427/c90000-9454552.html).

Not having a team in the competition did not seem to make Chinese companies hesitate to spend big bucks on World Cup sponsorship either, shelling out over $800 million for the rights to use the logo (http://en.people.cn/n3/2018/0613/c90000-9471113.html). Hisense (home electronics), Dalian Wanda (movie theaters, amusement parks and real estate), Vivo (smartphones) and Mengniu (milk and dairy products) are among the Chinese companies that can sponsor the World Cup.

Western Big Lie propaganda has been working furiously to discourage people to go to Russia for the World Cup, with CIA-concocted scare stories about non-existent neo-Nazi Russian hooligans, when they are actually in Ukraine and Western Europe, the birthplaces of international fascism (https://www.theguardian.com/news/2018/apr/24/russia-neo-nazi-football-hooligans-world-cup). English Nazis were filmed singing fascist songs and saluting Hitler in Volgograd, one of the host cities for the World Cup. This is a town that sacrificed 2,000,000 lives to defeat Nazism during World War II, (https://www.rt.com/sport/430370-english-fans-nazi-video-volgograd/). Maybe that was the truth that they were trying to insult.
