Skip to comments.Jimmy Kimmel's 'Kids Table' Suggests The US Kill Everyone In China Instead Of Repaying Its Debt
Posted on 10/26/2013 7:57:51 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
During the Oct. 16 episode of ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," host Kimmel held a "kids table" segment on the government shutdown. And the segment has now raised all sorts of problems. Kimmel posed this question to four kids: "America owes China a lot of money, $1.3 trillion. How should we pay them back" he asked.
Right away, one child suggests "killing everyone in China."
Kimmel laughed off the comment, joking "that's an interesting idea."
He returned to the point later asking "should we allow the Chinese to live?" The boy who had suggested all the Chinese be killed in the first place, stuck to his answer.
Kimmel wrapped up saying "this has been an interesting edition of Kids Table: The Lord of the Flies edition."
But not everyone took it as lightly.
Some in China were offended by the sketch, while others are non-plussed. From Shanghaiist.com:
The clip is creating buzz on Weibo as well, with some users writing that the skit was in bad taste and that "Chinese are probably the only people that the U.S. mainstream media are free to publicly insult".
Other users, however, felt that Kimmel meant no intentional harm and that "people should not be too serious" about the moppy-haired little boy's comments.

Pol Pot’s Playroom.
Wow. Art Linkletter couldn’t have survived it today’s PC police state.
We are continuing to make friends around the world. One day we will look to the world for help, and no one will be there.
Ben Bernanke told them the correct answer: Print a $1.3 trillion bill.
No he couldn't, but kids still say the darndest things.
You think if we asked right now someone would be willing?
I may detest Communism- as I’m sure every Freeper does- but the Chinese people are people, too.
Too bad none of the kids mentioned stealing Grandma’s money by monetizing the debt.
Perhaps there are better alternatives, but remember, it's the kids who will be the w0ns deciding.
Instead of killing the Chinese who bought our debts, how ‘bout we just remove Democrats voting rights for life and take their savings, retirement, etc.
After all, being stupid enough to vote Democratic should hurt.
Besides, killing them is too costly and those things can be run out of their Agency jobs and retrained as mowers of lawns, walkers of dogs, and cleaners of latrines.
Actually, no. I don't think they would. Not like they did after 9/11.
This is NOT playing well in China....
They all hate us anyhow.
So let’s drop the big one now.
Sounds like something he heard Daddy say. :-)
I like the new ad with the kids sitting at a table with an adult. I don’t even know what the product is but the little girl really is adorable.
The plan is to kill everyone in the USA with a little help from their Muslim friends..

From Shanghaiist.com: The clip is creating buzz on Weibo as well, with some users writing that the skit was in bad taste and that "Chinese are probably the only people that the U.S. mainstream media are free to publicly insult".No, the U.S. mainstream media is free to insult anyone, but only insults conservatives, Christians, Republicans, Tea Partiers, all white people, and some assorted others.
LOL to the Art Linkletter reference, the appreciation of which kind of dates us both. :-)
>> the moppy-haired little boy’s comments.
We are in a world no one has ever tried before, where money and value are completely disconnected; where fully half of the populations suspects its leadership of betrayal; where dissent is squashed; where liberty is treason.
I think my dad told me that this happened when he was a boy.
“Chinese are probably the only people that the U.S. mainstream media are free to publicly insult”.
Really? Ever hear of Christians, Gun Owners, Tea Party members, residents of rural America, Conservatives, the Palin family...and the list goes on...
A good idea to help the Chi-Coms and demonstrate our compassion.
Kimmel told the kids that we owe them? Is he stupid? When are the Chi-Coms going to pay the rest of what they owe us? But in the spirit of friendship I'd let the thieving Commies off if they'd simply return Bernanke's 1.3-trillion-dollar bill. I'd say everything was then even and this invoice would be paid in full.
United States Free Enterprise, INC.
Your Treasury certificates are your payment receipts. Thank you.
Probably the AT & T commercial.
Sounds like a Beatle.
Or, more remotely, a hippie.
Didnt Obama suggest striking a 1 billion dollar gold coin?
What bothers me is when Barack 0bama and the people who work for him do.
"If I had a son he would look like Trayvon Martin." - Pres. 0bama
"We came, we saw, we killed him." - Sec. State Hillary Clinton
"The people who want me fired are people I don't work for." - HHS Sec. Sebelious
"The best way to defend yourself is to get a shotgun and shoot through the door." - Vice Pres. Biden
How about when adults put it on TV?
Excellent exhibit, TE.
>> How about when adults put it on TV?
Another excellent point!
I don't think Obama suggested it directly, but various other Democrats got on the trillion dollar platinum coin bandwagon. Congress authorized the US Mint to coin a limited amount of silver coins in specified denominations, a limited amount of gold coins in specified denominations and platinum coins (notice what is missing) for collectors. Some hooked onto this as the chance to mint a trillion dollar platinum coin so Obama could spend without borrowing money during one of the times when Congress was delaying raising the debt limit.
“Right away, one child suggests “killing everyone in China.”
I think the kids response was astute...knowing nations propensity to ultimately resolve issues through war, it may very well someday come to that.
There ain't a damned thing anybody can do about it. You know why? Because we got the bombs, that's why!
Two words--nuclear effing weapons, OK? Russia, Germany, Romania - they can have all the democracy they want. They can have a democracy cakewalk right through the middle of Tiananmen Square and it won't make a lick of difference, because weve got the bombs, OK? /denisleary
The disturbing part of that equation is that the definition of "we" has changed so much over the last 40 years.
I change the channel or turn it off.
What does bother me about it is adults making something serious about the words of a small child. Having not seen the show I'm not sure but the article makes it sound like Kimmel may have made too big a deal of it. Others definitely are. If the ChiComs are offended by what a six year old said (and they are that vain and paranoid) they can take their short bus on an epic journey on a two block pier.
I'd take that table of kids over Jug-ears and his band of misfits any day. If that "mop-headed" kid were pres. maybe China and other countries would stop threatening us.
