Previously, netizens was shocked and disgusted by the discovery of National’s Little Vanguard 國民小先鋒. A former member who is now a secondary school student talks about her memories of the patriotic organisation.
怡: Recently, when I tidied up clothes, I found this shirt unexpectedly. Actually, I was once a national’s little vanguard.
When I was a primary 5/6 student, I was persuaded by teachers and classmates to join National’s Little Vanguard as it did not have enough members.
Today, I wrote this essay to tell you effects of brainwashing from National’s Little Vanguard and let you understand effects on our and the next generations if “the China model” national education is implemented.
First, for a period of time, I thought that I didn’t need to study English because I heard from my tutor that we have a market of 1.3 billion people and foreign languages were useless as China was the best.
Second, we were taught that when we sang the national anthem we should have a patriotic heart because everything Chairman Mao and Deng Xiaoping did was for the country and they contributed a lot and did many, many good things. (However, I don’t know what good things they did. It seemed that not much was mentioned.)
I don’t quite remember details. However, I wish that you would know that the brainwashing will be more powerful on primary 1 or 2 students than primary 5 or 6 students if they study this course.
The primary school she went to is located in Tin Shui Wai, which is called the “City of Sadness” as there were lots of China-Hong Kong family tragedies happened in there last decade, and it was a target of anti-Mandarin invasion not too long ago because its name has the Mandarin transliteration of Hong Kong, Xianggang, which is an offensive eyesore to netizens.
Netizens have just pooled money to buy newspaper advertisements to promote the withdrawal of national education and the protest on July 29th. The following is one of the candidate posters that will appear on newspapers.
97% of primary school teachers who are going to teach national education this September lack confidence.
The national condition of China is hard to teach. Hong Kong suffers disasters.
Need you to believe in Mainland China and even want you to worship like a slave.
The minds of children now need to be mended badly.
The brainwashing period is endless. Nobody can stop the invasion of the Communist Party.
Listen to the command of the North. How to let him control.
