China condemns U.S. gun ownership as human rights violation
Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 5/29/12 | David Codrea

Posted on 05/29/2012 8:15:54 PM PDT by Nachum

A report issued by the State Council Information Office of the People's Republic of China has included U.S. gun ownership among a list of human rights violations, Law Enforcement Examiner Jim Kouri reported yesterday. "The Human Rights Record of the United States in 2011" was published last Friday on the PRC’s Consulate General in New York website.

“The United States prioritizes the right to keep and bear arms over the protection of citizens' lives and personal security and exercises lax firearm possession control, causing rampant gun ownership,” the report claims. “The U.S. people hold between 35 percent and 50 percent of the world' s civilian-owned guns, with every 100 people having 90 guns [and] 47 percent of American adults reported that they had a gun.”

The conclusion that gun bans will result in enhanced protection of lives and personal security flies in the face of both the American and Chinese experience. Predictably, the report presents many of the same cherry-picked arguments used by “leading” U.S. and international “gun control” organizations that totally ignore the protective benefits of arms in private hands. And, as typical with advocates of a centralized monopoly of violence, Chinese-style genocide, which resulted in government-caused deaths of unknown tens of millions of defenseless human beings in the 20th Century, and the current brutal occupation and tyrannical suppression of Tibetan sovereignty, is left unacknowledged. Left unsaid is the inconvenient truth that rendering captive populations unable to resist makes such monstrous crimes against humanity not only possible, but inevitable.

Cho is Korean. I say send her to the North side of the DMZ. See what it’s like to live under the purest form of her ultraleft ideology.

See fieldmarshaldj's ping a couple above this one: Ship Cho to N. Korea and see how she (it) likes living in the ultimate leftist paradise.

Frigging freak...

I think the composite above is brilliant, but instead of the FU text below the photos, I'd suggest putting something about the "human rights" story there. Otherwise, it has no context to the actual news story.

Something distilled from this would be more effective, I think:

A report issued by the State Council Information Office of the People's Republic of China has included U.S. gun ownership among a list of human rights violations, Law Enforcement Examiner Jim Kouri reported yesterday. "The Human Rights Record of the United States in 2011" was published last Friday on the PRC’s Consulate General in New York website.

Maybe a combo. Text that explains the pics a little, like you mentioned, very brief of course, and then in smaller print the 1-800-FU thing.

“...Her last moments were in resistance. ...”

Yeah...but THEY still won. I’d much rather it be THEIR last moments, see them cowering on the
receiving end of the AK. I can’t even begin to express the depth of my hate for communist/socialist
ideology, and those who push it.

“...God d—n those statists who want to disarm peasants anywhere...”

We have them here too...those who would try to reduce us to peasant status. F*** ‘em.

I hope and pray that folks really understand what we are up against, and are prepared for it. And
I don’t just mean III Percenters.

Wouldn’t expect to hear a dictatorship praise the right of subjects to protect themselves.

“...China has already destroyed most of our U.S. manufacturing ability. ...”

China didn’t do it by themselves - “American” businessmen and politicians LET them buy up our technology, our manufacturing capability, and so forth.

They couldn’t do ANYTHING to us, unless they were enabled to do so by people within our own walls.

They took advantage of the opportunities that greedy - and traitorous - people right here amongst us provided.

A simple policy shift of “No, you can’t buy this;” “No, we won’t trade that with you;” and “No, you are forbidden from owning property here;” and none of this would have happened. We did that once upon a time. It worked.

I guess that’s protectionism, but when it comes to dealing with communist/socialist governments, it’s basic common sense self-defense.

That system can’t survive on its own unless it’s parasiting off of a capitalist host society.

The TRUE enemy in this is right here, in our own country, who perpetuate this one-sided bleeding out.

What did Marx say - “The last capitalist we hang shall be the one who sold us the rope.?”

Yeah...and dumbasses believe them, elect them, and follow them around with drool sliding down their chins chanting “Yes We Can!”

How about something like this, before the call 1-800 FU China?

In a May 2012 report, China calls private U.S. gun ownership a human rights violations.

I just think the photos need to be tied to the actual PRC report.

“...So what do we do against China?...”

“We” as a people refuse to buy their goods, where we can. That’s one little act of defiance. Spend the extra $$$ if you have to for a “Made in America” label.

“We” as a people refuse to elect people who openly espouse supporting their economy and keeping normal relations with a slave state. That’s another little act of defiance.

“We” as a people refuse to do business with companies that transfer their work forces overseas. OUR people need jobs first. If it isn’t “Americans First”, then don’t feed their machine, if you can avoid doing so.

The buck is never more important than the ideal that this country was founded on - freedom, liberty, and human dignity.

We need, as a people, to re-acquaint ourselves - and our children - with those simple ideas. US first; good Allies second, everything and everybody else way distant - if at all.

We had it before. We can have it again. Starts within each person that wakes up.

Beyond that...you tell me, friend. I don’t pretend to have the answers. I only know what I try to do personally to stem the tide and admittedly, it ain’t a hill o’ beans when it’s only one person.

I wish I did have the answer to give you.

Phil, this graphic has now replaced the 12th Imam from Chicago graphic as my all time favorite!

You are one very creative guy!
