Here is a translation of the post:

I’ve read a number of books on Chinese politics published overseas, and they all wantonly attack and criticize Chinese leaders past and present but make an exception for a certain current leader. This is something I worry about too. I’m guessing this post won’t be around too long. Start the clock.

The original Chinese-language post follows:

看过一些海外出版的关于中国政治的书,对往届现任的中国领导人肆意的攻击漫骂,但对一名现任领导人除外,这也是我所忧虑的,这个贴估计存在不了多久,计时。
