    The CCP ("law") has no objections, but some netizen-subjects apparently do.

    (FWIW, the stress hormones in mistreated or tortured animals don't magically vanish when people eat those animals...)

    Not sure what you are implying here.

    You don't get stressed from eating a stressed pig.

    As some outlets and world organisations continue to praise the openness and transparency of the Chinese government...

    Sending this tweet by a nationalist/wumao (didn’t bother to investigate) because she may well be right, but not in the way she means...

    Hu Xijin, editor-in-chief of Global Times, a nationalist newspaper affiliated with People’s Daily, said China should have been better prepared for the outbreak and taken preventive measures at an earlier stage.“We have had the experience of Sars, and this outbreak is similar to Sars,” Hu wrote on Weibo. “This outbreak should not have happened in China which has advanced medical standards and social organisation capability. I personally believe the Wuhan city and national health care authorities should be responsible.”

    Hu said the media’s role in scrutinising the government had been weakened over the years by various local authorities, which restricted journalists from following up on the virus outbreak.
    State media readying the blame to fall on low-level bureaucrats, expecting us to imagine that state media is controlled by local authorities, and ignore the fact that the culture and directives emerge from the “leadership at the core” we were previously constantly reminded of.

    Great! Now that I know what the virus looks like, I'll be sure to keep an eye out for it!

    I post this for contrast. Yes China may be a basket case in a few ways (look at how they couldn’t pay this guy his wages), but there are a lot of good people in it.
