Chinese demonstrate patriotism in their IM pagers

    To counter Western propaganda about human rights violations and a boycott of the Olympics, Chinese Internet users have organized an unusual flash mob. They are massively adding a special icon with the image of a heart and the word “China” (“I love China”) to IM pagers. In this way, they express support for their home country.

    Those bloggers who have Chinese friends in ICQ claim that more than half of their friends support this action. They all hung this icon next to their name in the contact list.

    Enemies say that the Chinese media deliberately fanned this scandal and taught it to the Chinese in the wrong light to play on a sense of patriotism. One way or another, but this flash mob is a clear manifestation of Chinese nationalism, which they openly demonstrate to the whole world.
