I do not understand it… for years and years and years, we see the thugs in Beijing killing political dissidents, jailing people who think for themselves and generally thumbing their nose at any semblance of human rights– and we do nothing about it. I, for one, am perfectly willing to stop buying cheap, defective PRC-manufactured crap.
The PRC (People’s Republic of China) is nothing but a thug-run dictatorship. I don’t want to hear about the supposed “dictatorship of the proletariate” and I don’t want to hear about supposed “egalitarianism” because neither is desirable nor moral. Thugs deserve a proper end–one at the point of a gun or a hangman’s noose. That’s exactly what the teapot dictators in Beijing are.
I’m ashamed of my government’s willful lack of spine when dealing with the PRC. Then again, I’m TOTALLY in favor of severing all ties with Beijing and moving the American embassy to the REAL China… The Republic of China is the legitimate government of the Chinese people.
I’m horrified that when I tell people that their green tea was picked using slave labor, they just blank out and do not seem to care. We, as Americans, are proud of our support of equal rights before the law and of freedom– and we’ve spend trillions of dollars trying to help other peoples gain or maintain freedom– yet we turn a blind eye to the attoricities of the PRC thugs in Beijing.
