Quote by Obama:“Recall that earlier generations faced down communism and fascism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.”
Chinese newspapers excised the word 'communism' or even the entire paragraph. China's government, though, doesn't really suffer the public outrage you might expect from such ridiculous attempts to pretend everything's cool. They've spent so long fomenting a nationalistic attitude in its citizenry that Chinese netizens are, by and large, completely unwilling to brook any suggestion that their government is not acting properly. Just like complaining about freedoms in America, any suggestion that ChinGov should knock this censorship stuff off is met with "Fuck off, we're China, and your country's not so great!"
Hrm, yes, very mature.
I love China, I love watching the Chinese story as it unfolds before us all, but man, this head-in-the-sand stuff realy annoys me.
