Firstly there was the big dig against the Dalai Lama as a nasty man, then there was the view that the Chinese love their government – Da peepules loves tha guvverment.. LOLZ!!? Stop hatin’, U orientalishts!!
And now Brendan O’ Neill from Spiked Online is saying on CIF that we shouldn’t be so harsh on the Chinese over the Tiananmen Square massacre of 1989. On Spiked Online he is busy exposing “the mad mix of moral disdain and moral relativism behind China-bashing.”
We shouldn’t be so harsh though, running online magazines is an expensive business. I’m sure Spiked’s funders (I’ve not many appeals for cash donations lately) are in tune with the new editorial line. Brothas gotta do what a brothas gotta do, right? Its also just coincidence, I’m sure, that as the Chinese are building a new coal station every week, that Spiked Online and friends are challenging the assertion that human activity is affecting the environment. Pure coincidence. Just dont hate on the Chinese government – you’ll be guilty of cultural relativism or something like that.
