Mud-Wrestling Pig: 'Tear Down This Wall -- Or Else'
[Comments enabled]

I say here and now: Tear down this firewall.  It stands as an affront to free speech, a fundamental human right.

And, since it's not like me to just ask, I also warn you: Five days from now you shall be embargoed if you do not.  Both people and things; your citizen's visas shall be revoked, your firms blackballed.

From my keyboard to Trump's ears....

Oh, and **** the NBA.

Yes, I totally agree. This is Trump's big chance. Furthermore, many high profile Democrats have already gone on record against the Chinese just recently on this very issue. So, Trump has the the Dirty Dems just where he wants them. The stinking GOP has also spoken on this issue, and so have many of the ****heads in Hollywood. Now that the sports-circus dumb-****s are on board it's the perfect time for Trump to make a famous Tweet.

And just as soon as the Chinese Communist Party throws a total fit about Trump's Tweet, Trump then needs to Tweet out that "it's so sickening to watch as the CCP sets up a very sick and offensive 'Social Credit Score' and other demented and morally repulsive measures that destroy free speech and individual rights. China is a sick, sick, sick country if they keep this up. I can see why millions of people in Hong Kong are so upset with what the Draconian CCP are attempting to do in beautiful Hong Kong. Let the people speak!"

Yes, President Trump needs to go on the attack and curb stomp the CCP but good and hard....

Now the Chinese have gone too far and banned South Park. Trey Parker and Matt Stone subsequently issued a heartfelt apology. smiley

Today, Matt Stone and Trey Parker released a public "apology" to China's communist leadership in their typical style. "Like the NBA, we welcome the Chinese censors into our homes and into our hearts," they tweeted in response to an article about the episode on The Hollywood Reporter. "Xi doesnt look just like Winnie the Pooh at all." They provided a direct link to the episode, and promoted their upcoming 300th, before their conclusion:

"We good now China?"

If anyone expects him to ever say anything negative about China or Hong Kong or the Great Firewall I have some of Ivanka's Chinese Trademarks to give them.

Just last week he congratulated them on their 70th anniversary.

Like the USMCA drop in NAFTA replacement, I really expect whatever deal we work out with them to be basically the same, but be will declare it to be a victory.

The only reason the Chinese are rejecting a deal now is not because of the IP enforcement (which they will break anyway) but the mandatory our purchases we've also asked them for. They don't mind being fined or fighting it out if they steal IP because they see whatever value that gain from that being equal to the pain of a fine or a tariff, but they are pushing back on the mandatory purchases of crops because they don't want their hands to be tied if the market rate for soy or wheat goes lower.

If it wasn't for that, I fully expect we would already be seeing love letters between him and Xi like we got from Kim.

I was promised Fire and Fury and all I got was Kimchi and Love Letters.

F the NBA but you gotta love some Daryl Morey. Did he stir up a hornets nest or what?!

There are so many things going on now it's hard to keep up.

Click, do you write Trump's Tweets. That one looks like one of his.

I suspect we are going to have to do the same thing, before this group of leftists are done. We won't care about the NBA when that time comes or their endorsements.

At least the PRC got one thing right (my emphasis):
The backlash has intensified after NBA Commissioner Adam Silver defended Moreys right to free speech. Silver refused to apologize and said the NBA doesnt dictate what people can or cant say, sparking further anger in a nation that restricts free speech. Chinas Communist Party-backed Global Times fired back in a tweet saying free speech is never free.


Personally I think the PRC has pretty much used all their initial leverage. I know it's just the NBA but the next steps they (NBA players) take will be interesting.

I find Progressives these days explicitly choose to be ignorant. The complexity of today's world - which they helped to bring on - seems to be their excuse.
