Commies Turn On Each Other (comments)

A well documented but little known fact of communist history is that communists turn on themselves, not just on the bourgeois. Pol Pot's commies turned on the commies from Vietnam. Stalin's commies turned on Trotsky and other Lenin leaders. The list goes on and on.

So, with a smug grin, we read today's headline: "An angry China is lashing out at its foreign critics".

BEIJING — Bristling at criticism in the run-up to the Summer Olympics, China is lashing back at its foreign critics _ by name.

Earlier this week, the state Xinhua news agency called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi “disgusting.” And on Tuesday, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu lambasted a CNN commentator, Jack Cafferty, for his “vicious” commentary on China.

“We solemnly request that CNN, and Cafferty himself, take back the malicious remarks and apologize to the Chinese people,” Jiang said at a news briefing.

Our questions for those arguing for partial or full boycott of the China games - Where were you 12 years ago when Beijing was selected as the 2008 site? Are your protests genuine, or are you just jumping on the latest bandwagon? And, are you against Communism, or are you just for Tibet? Hmm?
