    Impressive. Now they can do fuzzy targeting of their hypersonic missiles no doubt. Quite the quantum leap.

    You can watch all the other bullshit videos he has made, they're catchy... Tokyo Bon, the Chinese reggaeton, the Thai one...

    Explanation

    https://globalvoices.org/2021/10/19/...-little-pinks/
    By banning the song on the mainland, Beijing just affirmed the critque that the song is saying, that despite all of CCP's proclamation of how strong their country is, these "little pinks" have fragile hearts who can't take criticism.

    So-called Autonous Regions, meet Ein Reich, Ein Volk, Ein Fuhrer & Eine Han-Pekingese Sphrache.

    NB. The CCP under omnimpotent Dada also considers supporting the status quo (i.e. not supporting CCP's right to launch military invasion) an act against it and its "sovereign" rights...


    "China says it will make people who support Taiwan independence criminally liable for life, and in fact has already drawn up a list of people who are "stubbornly pro-Taiwan independence."

    And in other news, meanwhile in the CCP-ruled PRC... One. Hundred. Million. Children.

    So, certain ill-willed illibertarian Canada-residing Han chauvinist polemicist has penned what appears to be an euphemism-laden piece on Carl Schmitt, the Nazi icon aka "Hitler's Crown Jurist" (1933-1945) who is now venerated as the saviour of the CCP of a new nazional-sozialist era.

    Schmitt's fine legalistic innovation can be summed up as "a dictatorship can and must do anything to preserve itself and codifying its own actions as 'lawful' gives it a veneer of respectability".

    Holocaust? Check.
    Pursuing Lebensraum and genocide at neighbours' expense? Check.
    All perfectly 'legal' and 'respectable' under the dictatorship's own 'laws'.
    Also a very helpful concept with all the sycophants, "loyal trash" and others "just following orders"...
    So-called "NSL" anyone?



    Here's a good backgrounder on the character that first helped to justify Nazi policies and now the CCP...

    The Nazi Inspiring China’s Communists
    A decades-old legal argument used by Hitler has found support in Beijing.
