China is a repressive dictatorship. This issue will arise once again. Give it a few years. Bank on it.

With Government by any name, ultimate Power always resides with the people, as long as they act together. But if only a quarter of those people show up they're in serious trouble.

Must be very strange for the progressives - for the last few months they have been huge China supporters based solely on the fact Trump was going after them. Now, they are forced to actually think about their position - the scary thing is that the censorship driven police state that China is today is pretty well aligned with the progressives in the US.

#8 total BS as usual.

As a general rule Conservatives prefer a police state. Certainly the orange sloth supports police violence in any form or circumstance, except himself and his own klan. Progressives are at the forefront of curtailing police violence. One reason is that more often than not progressives are the targets of police violence. NAFTA and all the free trade agenda is a right wing conservative plot funded by Corporate America to reduce labor costs. Even thought the orange sloth ran as a Republican he has campaigned as anti-free trade. But there is no evidence of a coherent plan from the scattered tweets or policies of the Trump debacle which will successfully reinvigorate US manufacturing. Nixon opened China, BushI developed that opening further. Certainly Clinton and Obama followed that same course.

As a general rule Marxists prefer a police state. The 100 years of Marxist socialism since 1917 prove that beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Well, how do DR Liberals feel about this? You have made it clear you feel China is the best country in the world and we should bow down to them and do everything they say, so when proof comes out that they have humanitarian problems (everyone else already knows this)...how do you feel? Is China still your go-to country for proving America is the devil and should die?

I think the next atrocity is being planed in Peking at this moment. They now have enough experience to be successful. Military on the street, secret police going door to door picking up dissidents who will disappear. Stalin didn't die, he was reincarnated in China.
