The Chinese Want Gun Control — in America
By: Selwyn Duke
Who’d have guessed it? When the Chinese aren’t busy effecting forced abortions, persecuting political dissidents, sending contaminated products to our shores, or shipping us other junk that malfunctions a month after you buy it, they concern themselves with our well-being.
In an article published by the Chinese government-front media outlet Xinhua, the Beijing regime calls on the Obama administration to use the Sandy Hook massacre as a pretext for more gun control. The outlet writes, “Every time a tragedy occurs, there are renewed appeals for gun regulation. However, the calls disappointingly always fail.” Gee, we wouldn’t want to disappoint the Chinese fascists again now, would we?
And that’s a good approximation of what they are. When you institute free-market reforms (which is smart), become the most rapacious, money-hungry, product-pirating vulture capitalists on the planet, but yet maintain an iron-fist grip on the private sector and social sphere, you don’t with credibility get to call yourselves socialists or communists. (This isn’t to imply that communism is better, just different.) Take note of this, Jeffrey Immelt and the rest of you dim bulbs who say things such as Chinese “state run communism” “works” a bit. What works for them is being the most cutthroat, playing-for-keeps economic player in the game. They’re communists like Bill Clinton is a celibate.
Back to the issue at hand, Xinhua writes that the Newtown victims’ “blood and tears demand no delay for the U.S. gun control,” that “with no re-election pressure, President Obama is currently in the best position to promote it” and concludes with, “If Obama wants to take practical measures to control guns, he has to make preparation for a protracted war and considerable political cost.” Wow, to paraphrase the Rodney Dangerfield character in Back to School, “They really care.
About what I have no idea.”
Perhaps the mercenary Chinese regime sees with every American shooting victim a diminution in their most lucrative market. Or perhaps the Beijing fascists just don’t like the idea of murdering free agents and prefer mass killing government run.
This brings us to the title of the Xinhua piece, “Innocent blood demands no delay for U.S. gun control.” Well, they say write what you know, and the Chinese regime certainly is an authority on shedding innocent blood. Back when they were still giving socialism that old college try and before they made Mao spin in his devilish grave, they murdered 40 to 70 million of their own people (it’s too bad those poor souls weren’t equipped with AR-15s, huh?). I don’t know what the body count is up to now, but I do know this: I trust the American people with arms far more than I trust the Chinese government with them.
And, obviously, Beijing doesn’t trust us with them, either. Maybe they heard about how the Japanese ruled out invading the US mainland during WWII because, we’re told, they knew that Americans were heavily armed. Hey, it would be nice if you never had to worry about such a stumbling block in the future, eh, you Chinese oligarchs?
Ironically, on the very day of the tragic Newtown massacre, a criminal in China slashed 22 schoolchildren with a knife. And I realize, Chinese-government mouthpiece Xinhua, you would no doubt say that because of your laws, his attack wasn’t nearly as deadly as Adam Lanza’s. I would say that because of our laws, our government isn’t nearly as deadly as yours.
