The single most striking aspect, to me, is the use of terms, phrases, and sometimes entire sentences from Chinese government media. Even if this group is not Chinese, why on earth would they consider this tactic useful, or more importantly, why do they feel that Chinese government media, of all things, is the best source on Buddhist issues of all things?
Have you seen the website, http://multipletext.com/ ?
Interesting to see the series of 18 articles entitled "Is Lamaism Buddhism?" at http://multipletext.com/listlama.htm
Most of it is so absurd and extreme that it makes Tantrismuskritik and buddhism look like voices of impartiality and sound reason.
Together with the other blatantly anti-Tibet/pro-China political propaganda on the rest of the website (search for articles on Tiananmen, for example), it's hard to see how Zhengjue's campaign is not totally aligned with the objectives of the Chinese government.
