Shanghai Daily on “So Called Internet Freedom”

China whines about “Internet Freedom”

The first lines of the story really say it all.

CHINA hit back at US criticism of Internet control yesterday, warning that relations between the two countries were hurt by the unreasonable accusations in the name of so-called Internet freedom.

Yet another reminder that the CCP is their own worst enemy. It’s sad that the official mouthpiece of a nation with so many bright and talented people responds to intellectual challenge with “your wrong” and “that hurts”. Come on central comittee, you can do better than that.

It was as if the government had hired The Onion as its image consultant.

Seems that the CCP leaders believe they are the ones with the guns and they money and everybody wants to be their friend. However the turning point in Chinese foreign relations seems to have arrived. Their foreign business friends are getting ready to turn their backs just as the real estate bubble litters the landscape with empty luxury apartments and empty office towers.

Of course, the CCP response also included some hard hitting “facts” like:

China’s Internet is open

The Chinese constitution protects the citizens’ freedom of speech

There are a lot of Chinese folks that would sure like to see that new “free speech” version of the Chinese constution… Tank Boy vindicated? We all dream. Come on CCP, this isn’t gradeschool. There are thousands o expatriots and western educated Chinese out here that are here to help, just call before publishing this sort of thing.
