This word, baizuo, is a recent discovery, the word baizuo having shown up recently on internet social media. The word baizuo is a Chinese epithet, a neologism that is a sarcastic insult used in reference to smug, European / American / Western, "left wing" political views such as identity politics. The Chinese epithet baizuo associates such politics with what they believe is a misplaced, smug, sense of cultural superiority. Does America's baizuo know that this is how many Chinese people perceive them?
