Like 共匪 (Communist bandit / gòngfěi), 赤匪 (red bandit / chìfěi), and 毛匪 (Mao’s bandit / máofěi), it car­ries roughly the same connotation as “dirty Commie” in English or “damned Yankee” in the Confederacy during the American Civil War.

Why it is blocked: The three “bandit” words above were commonly used by the Nationalist Kuomintang Party during the Chinese civil war to attack Mao and his Communist supporters; thus, besides be­ing insulting to the only significant political party in China, the words carry an extra historical and political burden. These three terms are also blocked.
