No, that’s not a takeoff on “ACB.” This is another blogger, a living, breathing example of CCP mind control in action. I read his post in a state of shocked fascination, wondering just how he came into being, what forces shaped his tortured reasoning and ignited such deep hatred against America. And such contempt for the most successful form of government the planet has ever known.
As usual, the blogger seizes on a piece of idiotic anecdotal evidence to “prove” his point that America is as guilty of imprisoning people who post anti-government stuff on the Internet as China. (The old “I-know-you-are-but-what-am-I bullshit.) Of course, if this were true, The Peking Duck would have been shut down long ago. But it’s not true. Take a look at the story he cites to back up his argument.
There may be new fallout after a University of Louisville student posted an internet message stating that New Orleans residents should do anything to survive — including shooting police, National Guard members or President George W. Bush if they get in their way….
Bailey was responding to another posted message about the turmoil following Hurricane Katrina. In his recent online response, Bailey wrote that families stranded by the storm should take and do anything necessary to stay alive, adding, “shoot every cop, National Guard (member) and politician who stands in your way, including George W. Bush, if need be.”
On Tuesday, a Secret Service agent interviewed Bailey, and a spokesman for that agency said Bailey could face a federal charge of threatening the president.
Everybody get that? This cretin is actually comparing the arrest of “cyberdissidents” in China (you know, monsters like Liu Di, and the cyberterrorist who posted a punk rock song) with someone who is inciting people to pick up arms and shoot police officers and the president of the United States.
I thought about arguing but then decided, what’s the point? It’s like arguing with someone who equates the Taiwanese independence movement with a few crackpots in Hawaii who want to secede from the US. Logic and facts only go so far with these people (which isn’t very far). You can’t win.
More pearls of wisdom from Unhinged Chinese Blogger:
We all know how effieient Chinese cyberspace police are safeguarding the welfare of the regime and to crack down those political rebels, who dare to use their little hidden-agendas to explore the wide wide west opportunities existing in the World Wide Web to try to sent some provoking tailored information to the outside world and then hope the outside recipients can use the big stick of Human Rights to hit Chinese goverment right in the face. The rebels pretty much give up overthrowing Chinanes goverment from inside since 1989, and they hopes that kind of countries like America will receive their messages and help them subvert Chinese government from outside. Blogging and other internet facilities let these rebels see “a new way to organise people and therefore make a mounting threat to the government.”
You see, it’s all a big conspiracy. Those who want Internet freedoms in China, like blogger Isaac Mao, have a sinister ulterior motive: they want bloggers to incite the US to topple the glorious Chinese government.
I want to say no, it can’t be serious. Unfortunately, anyone who’s hung out at the China Daily forums can tell you it’s really not that unusual. God help us.
