Even without the obligation to publish The Anti-New York Times, the Holy
Hatred which your intrepid reporter and his fearless feline sidekick have for Sulzberger's Slimes wouldn't prevent us from
perusing its putrid propaganda-plagued pages for news each day.
That's because, believe it or not, there are and have always been many gold nuggets of solid
information that can be dredged up from out of the Marxist manure. Readers of 'The Bad War', by yours truly, and 'Planet Rothschild', also by yours truly, will note some of the amazing items of hard
data dug up from old issues. Yes, for those wise to "the
big picture" and well-schooled in the philosophical art of sifting facts from spin, The Slimes, can be an excellent
source of daily data.
particular article represents a perfect illustration of a propaganda hit-piece which, in spite of its nasty spin, is chock-full
of interesting 'limited hangout' factoids that actually contradict the general narrative of a repressive, anti-Christian China.
Hazmat suits on, everybody. Let's unspin the spin, as we dig up some gold nuggets of hard data from the seditious cesspool
of "Pulitzer Prize winning" (barf) reporter Ian Johnson.
Johnson's "prestigious" Pulitzer Prize is named after the notorious Yellow Journalist, Joseph Pulitzer (cough, cough)
Headline: Decapitated Churches
in China’s Christian Heartland
Data Nugget: The one-time Atheistic tyranny now has a "Christian
Heartland", eh? That is actually very encouraging news to hear -- and will come as a pleasant shock to many Americans.
Thanks for the data, Johnson.
Johnson: Along the valleys and
mountains hugging the East China Sea, a Chinese government campaign to remove crosses from church spires has left the countryside
looking as if a typhoon had raged down the coast, decapitating buildings at random.
Rebuttal: "as if a typhoon
had raged" -- ''decapitating buildings" -- Oh the bloody exaggerated Yellow Journalistic drama! And a lie of omission
to boot! As Johnson himself will later reveal, the "government campaign" is only a local one -- entirely about zoning
ordinances governing the height of buildings. Overly bureaucratic regulators? Maybe. Religious persecution - not at all!
On a four-day journey through this lush swath of ’s Zhejiang Province, I spoke with
residents who described in new detail the breathtaking scale of an effort to remove Christianity’s most potent symbol
from public view.
Rebuttal: From whence this sudden love and concern for Christianity by the Jew York Slimes?
Like Count Dracula, Sulzberger recoils at the sight of a crucifix. Why is The Slimes suddenly so concerned
about the removal of crosses in China? (Note the Star of David worn by Bela Lugosi in the original Count
Dracula - 1931)
Johnson: Over the past two years,
officials and residents said...
Rebuttal: Unnamed "officials and residents" -- impossible to verify.
Johnson: ... the authorities have
torn down crosses from 1,200 to 1,700 churches.
Nugget: "1,200 to 1,700 churches" in a single province?! That means that Christianity must be
sweeping across China. Thanks for the data, Johnson.
Johnson: “It’s been
very difficult to deal with,” said one church elder in Shuitou, who like others asked for anonymity in fear of retaliation
by the authorities.
Rebuttal: More "anonymity"
due to "fear of retaliation."
Understandable (rolling eyes). Of course, by clue-ing your fear-filled source as a "church elder in Shuitou,"
the big bad Christian-persecuting Chinese can now close-in on who is talking to the banned New York Times. Oops!
campaign has been limited to Zhejiang Province ...
Data Nugget: So, out of China's
34 provincial-level administrative units (23 provinces, 4 municipalities , 5 autonomous regions and 2
special administrative region) -- the "decapitations" of church steeples / crosses has only occurred in one province.
Like we said earlier, a regional regulatory policy -- not a national persecution. Thanks for the data, Johnson.
have ordinances. In Victorian Cape May, NJ, all homes in the historic section must retain painted wooden
exteriors - no brick-face or aluminum siding.
Johnson: But people familiar with the government’s deliberations ...
What "people" -- dickhead! New York-based "analysts"? The Council on Foreign Relations? Your imaginary
friends in China? You haven't cited a single source yet, Johnson!
Johnson: ... say the removal of
crosses here has set the stage for a new, nationwide effort to more strictly regulate spiritual life in China ...
Let us know when China starts closing down Christian-owned bakeries, Christian photographers and Christian florists
for refusing to service sodomite weddings.
Johnson: In a major speech on religious policy last month, Mr. Xi urged the ruling
Communist Party to “resolutely guard against overseas infiltrations via religious means,”
Data Nugget: The
Chinese government believes that the CIA uses churches and missionaries as fronts for subversive activities. Thanks for the data, Johnson.
Johnson: Many human rights lawyers in China
Rebuttal: "Human rights" is code for CIA-NGO subversion, and lawyers is code for,
Johnson: In recent decades, the party had tolerated a religious renaissance in China, allowing
most Chinese to worship as they chose and even encouraging the construction of churches, mosques and temples
Nugget: "religious renaissance in China"
-- "encouraging the construction of churches".
Wow! Thanks for the data, Johnson.
Johnson: .. despite regular crackdowns
on unregistered congregations and banned spiritual groups such as Falun Gong.
Rebuttal: The reason for the
"crackdowns" on "unregistered congregations"
and Falun Gong is because they are CIA fronts. What Johnson ignores is the fact that 99% of spiritual groups and churches
are not experiencing "crackdowns."
The CIA uses propaganda and phony religious leaders such as the Dalai Lama to attack foreign governments
2- A 'Limited Hangout'
from the New York Times: 1977: 'A Worldwide Network for Dissemination of Propaganda Was Built by the C.I.A."
--- Thanks for the data, Times! (here)
Johnson: Hundreds of millions
of people have embraced the nation’s major faiths: Buddhism, Taoism, Islam and Christianity. There are now about 60
million Christians in China.
Rebuttal: "Hundreds of millions of people" have turned spiritual?
-- "60 million Christians" -- WOW! Old Mao must be rolling over in his grave! Thanks
for the data, Johnson.
Johnson: But Mr. Xi’s decision to convene a “religious affairs work conference”
last month suggested that he was unhappy with some of these policies.
Rebuttal: No, Johnson. What it
"suggests" is that Xi takes the threat of CIA-NGO penetration-via-religion very seriously --- as he should, as he
People familiar with the party’s discussions ...
Rebuttal: What "people?" Name them, dammit!
... say it intends to apply some lessons from the campaign in Zhejiang to rein in religious groups across the country.
Zhejiang is about local zoning laws. What Xi is concerned about is the CIA. Do not mix the two issues, Johnson.
While the government is unlikely to begin tearing down crosses across China, the sources say,
yet again with this imaginary ranting about what, "sources say!"
sources" of Ian Johnson's imagination.
local authorities are expected to begin scrutinizing the finances and foreign ties of churches
Data Nugget: The
Chinese are concerned about "finances and foreign ties" of certain churches. Thanks for the data, Johnson.
Johnson: The government said that it was enforcing building codes and that all structures
had been affected, not just churches.
Data Nugget: Again, the article informs us that the "decapitation"
announced with such so breathless fanfare in the headline is only about local building codes in a single province. Thanks for the data, Johnson.
Johnson: But documents reviewed by The New York
Times ... show that provincial officials were worried that churches had begun to dominate the region’s skyline.
Oooooh --- "documents reviewed by The
New York Times." Sounds so authoritative, doesn't it? Because we all know how well "the paper of record"
interprets documents. (rolling eyes)
Johnson: ... show that provincial officials were worried that churches
had begun to dominate the region’s skyline.
Data Nugget: Again, the removal of high crosses is
all about a local regulatory policy governing building heights. The same type of regs are common in America too. Thanks for the data, Johnson.
Johnson: “It was quiet late last year,”
one local Christian said, “but the government is now making it clear that all of the crosses will go.”
Yet another "anonymous" Christian.
Johnson: In February, a prominent lawyer was shown on state television confessing
to having colluded with foreign forces, especially American organizations, to stir up local Christians. The lawyer, Zhang
Kai, had been in Zhejiang providing legal advice to churches that opposed the removal of their crosses.
Data Nugget: A
"human rights" lawyer confessed to working with the CIA to stir up trouble in the churches. Thanks for the data, Johnson. (I know. I know. He must have been tortured
“It’s easy for them to fabricate a crime and accuse you,” said the pastor of a large unregistered church
in Wenzhou. “We have to be very careful.”
Rebuttal: Another "anonymous" pastor, given
away by Johnson's clue (large unregistered
church in Wenzhou).
Johnson: “More than three decades ago, we didn’t even have a church,” he said.
“Persecution in church history has never stopped. All we can do is pray.”
Rebuttal: My dear
Pastor Anonymous at the "unregistered" church in Wenzhou! If Christianity is being persecuted, then why has the
Chinese government actually encouraged (as Johnson's slipped-through data points concede), the explosion of the Christian
population to a stunning 60 million?
and I would like to thank the "Pulitzer Prize winning" punk, Ian Johnson, for the important data nuggets that he
buried for us to find. Unfortunately, and Johnson knows this, most of the worshipful fools who kneel Sulzberger's
Slimes each day will never be able to appreciate their beauty --- assuming they can even notice them.
Some estimates put the number of Chinese Christians
as high as 100 million - and growing fast. According to the London Telegraph, China is on course to
become 'world's most Christian nation' within 15 years (here)
"The number of Christians in Communist China is growing so steadily that it by 2030 it could have
more churchgoers than America."
everyone in China believed in Jesus then we would have no more need for police stations. There would
be no more bad people and therefore no more crime." - Jin Hongxin
- A Buddist Revival is also occuring: (Here)
- And a Confucian Revival (Here)
- And a Muslim Revival (Here)
1- Confucius, Buddha, Jesus and the Koran -- similar philosophies for moral living -- all gaining rapidly in "repressive"
2- The Falun Gong spiritual movement, on the other hand, faces "persecution"
because the CIA uses it for its own purposes.
1: I read in the New York Times today
that China is really cracking down hard on its growing Christian population.
Communist China fears any popular movement that it can't control.
"Wrong Boobuss! It's
not Chrisstianity that the Chinkss are worried about. It's CIAnity."
(Clever pun, Sugar! You see, one doesn't have to use foul language to be funny. --- But lose "chink"
from your vocabulary. Our readers from the Orient might find that disrespectful.)
