    China says media must 'cooperate' after clampdown

    link



    BEIJING (AFP) China on Tuesday told journalists they must "cooperate" with police and respect the country's laws, after several foreign reporters were roughed up in a crackdown on calls for anti-government rallies.
    Of course, there are always some people on here who will defend the actions of this criminal regime.

    "The police provided reasonable guidance, and the journalists should understand and cooperate," foreign ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu told a news conference.
    I guess to Jiang, "reasonable guidance" includes shoving and beating...

    US ambassador Jon Huntsman issued a strong statement about Sunday's events, saying: "This type of harassment and intimidation is unacceptable and deeply disturbing."

    Huntsman called on China to "hold the perpetrators accountable for harassing and assaulting innocent individuals" and "respect internationally recognised conventions that guarantee freedom of the press and freedom of expression".
    Well, Huntsman can call it as he sees it as he will be returning to the States soon to explore a run for the Republican nomination. Nice to see him call out the criminal Chinese government for what it has done.

    Media watchdog Reporters without Borders condemned the "thuggish attitude" of the police, adding: "The Communist Party needs to understand that free expression is not a crime."
    Nor is reporting on what is happening. Of course, China doesn't want anyone to know what things are really like. They just want everyone to read the China Daily and to go where the approved tour operators take foreign tourists with approved translators as the vast majority of them are not functional in Chinese...

    Who? I don't think I've seen anyone ever defend China on this forum.
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    When I have time this weekend, perhaps I will dig through some of the old threads and dig up some whoppers from Demon of Light, among others...

    And this is in the face of the posts touting how the Chinese are no longer Communists because they are Capitalists of some kind.

    What a load. Our tax and spend mentality has made it impossible for us to really stand up to these criminals and as Conservatives we have to stand up to the Liberals that have no clue on how our economy works and they are backing the Unions who are driving our economy into the dumper, and working hand in hand with Marxists/Socialists and Obama's Black liberation Theology bunch whe all want the end of our Constitutional Republic and they will even hide behind portions of to kill it then replace it with the Communist Manifesto.

    We need to find a way to get out from under China's control of our massive debt, or else.

    Of course their government said that, they're commies. This is what commies do.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
