I particularly hate how they use things like the Japanese war as some kind of rallying cry. It was the KMT that fought and defeated the Japanese, not the Communists. Instead they weave it into this story of oppression of the Chinese people by outsiders and the victorious Red Army.

Xi has driven the nationalism to new heights. Things were easing and most younger Chinese people wanted nothing to do with the Communist party rhetoric... but Xi is shoving it down people's throats and they have no choice.
This. 100%
