Literally every person I’ve heard make this statement are also the first to dogpile on social media any perceived Chinese person holding them personally responsible for the actions of a government they have little say in

I don’t know what makes you believe that I hold individuals “personally responsible” for the actions of a government they have little (or probably nothing) to say in. This is a very strange interpretation of my post. Unfortunately, though, here on Lemmy appear to be communities where such a second-hand humiliation is the preferred communication style.

Pattern-matching.

When you talk like a right-wing ignoramus (RWI), using almost exactly the same words as they do, you pattern-match as an RWI and are dismissed accordingly. This is horribly unfair, I know, I’m sorry, but I have way too little time in my day to go into your entire network history to see if you’re in the hypothetical 0.56% of people who use the phrase you did without being an RWI.

The existence of the 99.44% who are RWIs just too overwhelming a volume for me to concern myself with the (as yet hypothetical) 0.56%.
