wrong wrong and wrong again!|
I can understand China getting concerned by this, yes it does appear as if anti-China sentiment is rising in Germany.
But again, this is not the case. In fact it is the complete opposite.
You can understand since World War 2 (and also since the fall of the Berlin Wall) Germany is very ultra ultra sensitive to anything that is even remotely a dictatorship, communist, fascist, nazi, ruling, bossy, iron-fisted, cruel, nasty etc etc etc (you get my point)
Like Japan, they are ashamed of their past and have spent the last 50 years trying to erase it (although you can question some of Japan's actions towards this, but let's not get into Japan on this post, save it for another one)
So naturally, as the Chinese government still kind of, sort of, falls under the category of 'dictatorship' in a sense (ok, let's not deny it, yes it still is one!) then, naturally, the Germans are very ultra-sensitive about this, as I previously mentioned they don't want to be even remotely associated with anything even slightly dicatorship-esque!
It's nothing personal to do with the Chinese PEOPLE, the Chinese still fail to understand the difference in this and always take it as a personal attack on them. How many Germans flock to places like Qingdao every year as tourists and a very friendly to the Chinese. They are just naturally concerned about where China is heading in the future. They've suffered and been humiliated and spent the last 100 years developing their free society, they'd like to see China taking the same steps. And it's not happening at the moment, so they are naturally concerned :)
