Baizuo

This post was originally published on this site

Baizuo (/ˈbaɪˌtswɔː/; Chinese: 白左 báizuǒ, literally “white left”) is a derogatory Chinese neologism and political epithet used to refer to Western liberal elites. In more than 400 answers submitted by Zhihu users during 2015 to May 2017, the term is defined as referring to those who are hypocritically obsessed with peace and equality in order to satisfy their own feeling of moral superiority motivated from an ignorant and arrogant Western-centric worldview who pity the rest of the world and think they are saviors. A related term is shèngmǔ (圣母, 聖母, literally “holy mother”), a sarcastic reference to those whose political opinions are guided by emotions and a hypocritical show of selflessness and empathy, represented by celebrities.
