A Comment on the Henan Banking Scandal

Correction July 17, 2022: The following translation draws from a commentary that circulated on WeChat allegedly authored by He Weifang (贺卫方), a legal intellectual and former professor at Peking University Law School. The U.S.-China Perception Monitor can confirm this commentary is actually authored by Zhang Hongliang (张宏良), a professor at the Minzu University of China and frequently associated with China’s new left.

In the commentary’s comparison between China and fascist Germany, there are undertones of antisemitism in his ahistorical narrative of income inequality. The U.S.-China Perception Monitor reject antisemitism in all forms, and the commentary’s views do not represent those of the website or its affiliates.
