Chinese State Media Demands US Citizens Be Disarmed(We need any more proof this is a BAD idea?)

The official Chinese government news agency, Xinhua, has demanded the US immediately adopt stricter gun control measures to reduce the number of firearms the US populace is permitted to possess. The Chinese state-controlled media’s statement, titled “Innocent Blood Demands No Delay for US Gun Control,” is primarily focused on the Newtown tragedy in which 26 Americans were killed by a mad gunman. Twenty of the victims were young children.

The Chinese government stated, “Their blood and tears demand no delay for the U.S. gun control.”

In an apparent effort to restrict information to their populace, the Chinese government wrote of a number of US mass shootings but failed to mention they were either stopped by a citizen legally carrying a firearm or otherwise only occurred in the controversial gun-free zones that critics say make prime targets for madmen.

The Chinese government states:

The past six months have seen enough shooting rampages in the United States. Just three days ago, three people were shot dead at a shopping mall in Oregon. Two weeks ago, a football player shot his girlfriend dead and then committed suicide. Five months ago, 12 people were killed and 58 wounded in a shooting spree at a midnight screening of a Batman film in Colorado. The government went on to express a strong dislike of the National Rifle Association while also attacking the Republican Party as somehow complicit in the violence. Conversely, the article heaps praise on the Democratic Party:

Like our own state-run media, China’s is a mouthpiece for the regime.

How many unarmed Chinamen have been murdered by THEIR regime over the past 50 years? < /rhetorical question >

There should be little or NO controversy as to China’s intent toward We the People...nor as to their CONTEMPT of the US Congress and ourselves with their presumptions of our Second Amendment.

Hey they just don’t want any of the citizens to be armed when they start calling in their notes.

Australia listened to the very same Chinese suggestion years ago, and guess who China plans to actually invade first?

You guessed it, the Chinese desperately need to expand and Australia positively cannot defend themselves, not even if they had 21 million M4’s or M16’s in a storage depot and issued one to each citizen.

Citizens of Oz need at least four weapons each, a fully auto assault rifle, a shotgun, a battle rifle such as the M14 that can also be a decent sniper rifle and a pistol.

Actually China in general does not lecture, but trade, except for the US. Reason is simple, we tend to lecture them about human rights and religious freedom. We see it as our moral duty but since we do not pursue Saudi Arabia with the same zeal, China wonders about our motives for the criticism. They think it is US jealousy of their economic success and rise. Thus US criticism is seen as a sustain campaign to little by little besmirch China’s prestige and popular support in the world. In China’s vast historical and strategic experience/conditioning, besmirching is seen as a tool used by hostile powers to undermine you over time. Nations that criticize you in public is not seen as friendly.
China trades with nations that have armed clans and warlords, China does not lecture them on gun control and daily slayings. They could do the same with the US. Yes the Communist Chinese do not want an armed population IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY, but at the same time they are returning the US favor by lecturing us about our own internal political and social matters.

Barack O’Caesar is standing of the banks of the Rubicon. His feet are already wet. On the other side is dictatorship. What are we going to do about it?

“Chinese State Media Demands US Citizens Be Disarmed”

How come I never hear tell of anyone demanding the gubmint be diarmed?????

After all, it “was” the founding fathers who precluded a standing army, not to mention standing alphabet soup law enforcement (so-called) organizations of every description!

“They” have cunningly turned the tables on “we da sheeple,” and as Hopalong Cassidy used to say, looks like “they” got the drop on us, Pard!

Semper GusDusted!

This from a communist country that sentences citizens its to death, so they can harvest and sell their organs one at a time (while they’re alive).

Coincidentally having a gun is just such a crime to get you parted out in China, along with going to the wrong church. And I probably just gave Obama - via the NSA a great idea.
