“China has banned hip-hop culture and actors with tattoos from appearing on television.
The country’s top media regulator — the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television of the People’s Republic of China (SAPPRFT) — now “specifically requires that programs should not feature actors with tattoos [or depict] hip hop culture, sub-culture (non-mainstream culture) and dispirited culture (decadent culture),” Sina, a Chinese news outlet, reports. …”
Here are the new rules:
“Absolutely do not use actors whose heart and morality are not aligned with the party and whose morality is not noble
Absolutely do not use actors who are tasteless, vulgar and obscene
Absolutely do not use actors whose ideological level is low and have no class
Absolutely do not use actors with stains, scandals and problematic moral integrity …”
How is the Chinese government faring compared to the US federal government?
As Pat Buchanan notes, the Chinese are ridiculing the United States for the paralysis in Washington caused by the government shutdown:
“The Western democratic system is hailed by the developed world as near perfect and the most superior political system to run a country,” mocked China’s official new agency.
“However, what’s happening in the United States today will make more people worldwide reflect on the viability and legitimacy of such a chaotic political system.”
There is a worldwide audience for what Beijing had to say about the shutdown of the U.S. government, for there is truth in it.
According to Freedom House, democracy has been in decline for a dozen years. Less and less do nations look to the world’s greatest democracy, the United States, as a model of the system to best preserve and protect what is most precious to them.
China may be a single-party Communist state that restricts freedom of speech, religion and the press, the defining marks of democracy. Yet Beijing has delivered what makes the Chinese people proud — a superpower nation to rival the mighty United States. …”
The Chinese look at the United States and see a nation on the way down. It is a country whose commitment to liberal ideology produces figures like Vice President Mike Pence who prostrates himself before Benjamin Netanyahu to show his fealty to Jewish donors and cultural sensations like Woahh Vicky. The Chinese are increasingly confident in their own authoritarian paradigm.
Note: China maintains The Great Firewall to keep out Jewish cultural degeneracy.
