"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Chinese Official Orders Man Crushed by Steamroller

So, do you think Joe Biden, The New York Times and Thomas Friedman are still smitten with China. I mean, they sure get things done over there. Right?

From the Inforwars.com article by Paul Joseph Watson (warning extremely graphic pictures at the link):

"A villager in northern China attempting to resist a forced government relocation by remaining on his land was brutally crushed to death by a road flattening truck on the orders of a Chinese government official.

"The story, which was censored in China’s state controlled media, has caused outrage amongst users of Weibo, the Chinese version of Twitter, given it’s horrifying similarity to what happened to student protesters who were crushed to death by tanks during the Tiananmen Square protests in 1989.
"The victim, He Zhi Hua, refused to accept a paltry payment from the government which has forcefully evicted Changsha Village locals in order to re-appropriate their land for commercial use.
"When Hua began a protest by lying down on the spot through which construction vehicles had to pass, the local Vice Mayor ordered workers for the state-owned company to murder Hua by driving over his body with a huge road-flattening truck.
"Shocking images show Hua’s pulverized brains and his mangled body in the aftermath of the state-sponsored execution.
"Fearing unrest if the story got out to a wider audience, the government sent in 200 men to keep angry locals at bay and hide the remains of the body. The man’s family was offered a sum of money in order to keep quiet about the incident."
A man protests the government's usurpation of his land (a terribly common occurrence in China) and is then callously murdered. That'll teach him, and others, to stand in the way of progress.
Does anyone remember when Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood was waxing praise on China's ability to build infrastructure?

"Echoing the laments of pundits like Thomas Friedman of the New York Times, U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood argued Saturday that China outpaces the United States in building major transportation infrastructure like high-speed rail because of its authoritarian system and because the Chinese don't have the Republican Party holding up progress.

"'The Chinese are more successful [in building infrastructure] because in their country, only three people make the decision. In our country, 3,000 people do, 3 million,' LaHood said in a short interview with The Cable on the sidelines of the 2012 Aspen Ideas Festival on June 30. 'In a country where only three people make the decision, they can decide where to put their rail line, get the money, and do it. We don't do it that way in America.'

"LaHood said that despite this, democracy is still preferable. 'We have the best system of government anywhere on the planet. It is the best. Because the people have their say,' he said."

Of course, LaHood then went on to blame people having their say for spoiling high speed rail.

LaHood's --and the rest of the Left's-- naivete on how China "gets things done" and the results of their heavy-handed brutality borders on the stupid. The Chinese government is a totalitarian regime that routinely robs its citizens of their property, their basic freedoms, their rights to have children, and their citizens' dignity-- as well as indulging in many more unacceptable practices.

And we're to admire or envy them? Hmm. Weren't certain naive Americans admiring Hitler back in the '30s?
