Perhaps they will also show Palestinian babies being slaughtered?

Or is 'free speech' selective?

There are thousands of American films criticizing the CIA.

Classics like Salvador.

Chomsky is not a dissident. He's free in America.

And yet, I cannot think of one non-banned movie or book critical of CCP, with the possible exception of English by Wang Gang ( that might be banned) and Ba Wang Bie Ji, Fairwell My Concubine.

So, may this mural be reproduced on another thousand walls.

One day, you guys will admit those who self-immolate aren't terrorists rioting, they are peaceful protestors who feel so strongly about an issue they are prepared to take their lives. Do you feel this strongly about our own government? I don't. They are admirable and should be noticed by the whole world, most of all, by Chinese.

Non violent protests which really annoy an evil oppressor?

Sounds like fun.

I bet if I went to the art school in Edinburgh and encouraged them to make a mural big enough to be seen from space, it would get worldwide publicity.

Normal people don't torch themselves. Check the link with Dharamsala.

Also, check out Yahoo everytime these self-immolations are reported. A loud cheer goes up from Chinese world-wide in the comment section. Good riddance, one less separatist scum.

Don't you practice ancestor worship? Don't you realise that your Buddhist ancestors are rolling in their graves in the Yin world and that in your after life your ghost will owe big time?

You love to cock a snook at India, but India gave your ancestors their religion.
I think you lst your roots.

I'm not Buddist, so I don't care if that separatist Dollar Lama comes back as a cock roach.

China forgot the one basic rule about the states: freedom of speech. And we love it. If China would of just left the issue alone, no one in the US would of known what happened. However, because of China's stupidity and the fact they have to meddle in everyones affairs, This mural became national news. Now everyone knows where the mural is and what it is about which would spread the message of the mural throughout the entire US. More people are aware of the issue and can take a stand on it. The one thing China wanted kept hidden, is out in the open because China couldn't keep shut the fu-ck up.

Ironic isn't it.

They always do that. The Falungong ( which I don't practice) were, as my Ning Bo Chinese teacher laughingly told me, scarcely known in China. Not everyone knew them. Then suddenly, every news night and every article lambasting the evil cult. Why? No English would have known about them, but they put a big notice on Chinese Lonon Consullate about Beware the Falungong. So later, there were demonstrations. But the Chinese Embassador said ' The Organ Harvesting is ompletely ridiculous' thus telling English all about this issue.

Like giving 500 buses to Macedonia or Malta or wherever it was just after a horrible bus crash in China.

The logic isn't there. I respect the Chinese very much but the CCP are goo s who got lucky.

I don't get it either. If I were China's leaders, I wouldn't give a crap about some stupid mural in Oregon. First, nobody that truly matters stays in Oregon. Second, the policy makers that do matter already have an opinion and no amount of graffiti is gonna change their minds. Finally, maybe most importantly, most Americans really don't care about kung fu monks whether they are burning themselves or not. We've got more important things on our minds like keeping our homes and putting food on the table.

Quite simply the CCP is utterly terrified of the truth so things like the mural cause them to act irrationally.
