“If the Chinese government was kicking black folks to death in Africa, we might care – but it’s only them little yellow slant eyed Christians that are being abused… so where’s my new computer and football!”

More Gifts Ensure Barbados Silence On China’s Human Rights Abuses

Chinese Ambassador, Liu Huanxing says, “Here is your new ball, boys! Now run along and play. And forget that China is putting Christians in jail for merely possessing a bible or praying at home.”

Only in Barbados can the Chinese Ambassador hand out a football and in exchange receive glowing major news coverage – without having to worry about the national media printing anything about China’s human rights abuses.

Would Barbados Have Accepted Gifts From South Africa During Apartheid?

The Chinese are big enough and powerful enough that the words “Tiananmen Square Massacre” have never appeared in the Barbados media even on the June 4th anniversary of China driving tanks over people who just wanted to be free.

The Barbados media never mentions stories of (for instance) China imprisoning Christians or shooting men, women and children who were trying to stop their homes from being expropriated for an electricity plant.

Nope – just keep those Chinese gifts a ‘comin, folks!

Barbados Government Advisor on Poverty Alleviation Says Barbados Can Learn From China’s Experiences In Community Development

Oh, there is just so much we can learn from the Communist Chinese – according to Hamilton Lashley, Government’s Advisor on Poverty Alleviation. We were going to put in some quotes from an article a propaganda piece in the Barbados Advocate, but we don’t have the stomach for it this morning. If you want to read how lucky we are that the Chinese are giving us a football and a computer, here is the link.

Meanwhile, we will just remind folks about some of the goings-on in China and how the Communist Chinese handle “Community Development” when poor folks won’t move out of their houses to make way for a new power plant…

December 2005 – Chinese Police Shoot Villagers, 33 Dead, 20 Missing

And THAT Is How The Chinese Handle Expropriation for “Community Development”

Hey… we never said they weren’t efficient!

    So by this measure, Barbados shouldn’t accept aid from the United States (who is responsible for the atrocities in Iraq, bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, et al), nor should it accept aid from Britain, who enslaved the West Indies, or the EU…

    Hmm, what is Barbados to do?

    Yall really write some folly sometimes.

  2. BFP

    Would you have said the same about accepting aid from South Africa during apartheid?

    Yes or no?

  3. Joe Grind

    Yes.

    What the other countries have done, is comparable to or worse than apartheid. Let’s not attach more emotion to apartheid and China than anywhere else – wrong is wrong. If you think that Barbados shouldn’t accept aid from China, then you may as well say it shouldn’t accept aid from almost any other country.

  4. BFP

    I think that some things are more important than money, Joe.

    Honour, Duty, Truth, Freedom to name a few.

    …but I guess we will just have to disagree on that, yes?

    “joe” took the words right outta my mouth..

    The reality of the situation is, there no country that hasn’t done “dirt”….. Just as “joe” stated, America dropped two bombs on china, one on Hiroshima killing like 80,000 people directly and an about 60,000 from radiation poisoning…..the other on Nagasaki killing around 39,000 directly and an estimated 75,000 from radiation poisoning in the following years…yet, we still accept “gifts” from America…the server which hosts this blog is an American company, the OS system on your computer is probably Windows>Microsoft>American….so c’mon jump of the “bash people whole accept stuff from communist China” wagon already.

    On the religion topic…I’m not even going to address that, because discussing religion is like talking about your imaginary friend.
