Mass-murderer Mao, popular among anti-gun elites as an objet d’art, understood that “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.”
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.
Also left unquestioned: What is the motivation and agenda of any American who advocates Chicom-style citizen disarmament, knowing full-well its blood-drenched historic record?
The eyes of the world were on South Africa two decades ago as the apartheid era came to an end and Western governments helped bring the communist-backed African National Congress to power.
Last month, however, when Genocide Watch chief Gregory Stanton declared that white South African farmers were facing a genocidal onslaught and that communist forces were taking over the nation, virtually nobody noticed.
Few outside of South Africa paid attention either when, earlier this year, the president of South Africa began publicly singing songs advocating the murder of whites.
The silence is so deafening that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton didn’t even publicly mention the problems when she was there last week. Instead, she was busy dancing, pledging billions of dollars and praising the ruling government.
“I find that quite disturbing, as if Afrikaner lives do not count for the Obama administration,” Dan Roodt of the Pro-Afrikaans Action Group, PRAAG, told WND.
He says the situation is rapidly deteriorating.
Genocide Watch, a highly respected U.S.-based nonprofit organization led by arguably the world’s foremost expert on genocide, has been sounding the alarm on the genocidal onslaught facing South Africa for a decade. The world media, however, has barely uttered a word about it.

The three-day international conference of communist and workers' parties began on Friday amidst a call to intensify popular struggles and expand solidarities in the wake of the current world capitalist crisis.
So confident are communist leaders of the solution they can offer to current crisis in capitalism that even the leader of Communist Party of USA, Scott Marshall, said, "There could not have been a better time to be a communist in USA than this."
While the Chinese delegation, monitored by one embassy official in Delhi, kept away from media, leaders from other parties said the ideology had a bright future. Kerala CM VS Achuthanandan said communism was not only facing threat from outside but even within as there is an attempt to dilute the ideology.
Inaugurating the conference, CPM leader Sitaram Yechury said irrespective of the crisis, capitalism does not automatically collapse. "It needs to be overthrown. This requires that all of us need to constantly sharpen and strengthen the revolutionary ideological struggle of the working class and its decisive intervention under the leadership of a party wedded to Marxism-Leninism — the subjective factor without which no revolutionary transformation is possible," he said.
In the delegate session, leaders from Latin American countries underlined that for progressive forces in their region, coming to power of Barack Obama in USA did not indicate any favourable change. It represented only a new tactic to stall march of progressive forces in the region. They underlined various steps taken by US under Obama to strengthen forces of reaction in the region.
A writer for the Communist Party USA says that “…re-electing Obama is absolutely essential,” and warns that “divisions among Democrats and a potential wave of bad economic news can combine to threaten President Obama’s reelection.”
Marxist John Case, who writes for various CPUSA publications, has written a piece, “http://peoplesworld.org/the-danger-of-a-romney-election/ The danger of a Romney election ,” for the party publication People’s World, which warns that “Re-electing Obama is not sufficient to bring economic recovery or even relief to our people. Only a different class configuration in political power can do necessary minimum reforms to give us a chance. But re-electing Obama is absolutely essential. Now is not the time for hand washing the complexities and tactics away—or failing to triage the most critical questions from those that are less critical. We cannot win everything at once!”
In reality, the CPUSA’s endorsement of Obama for a second term is not surprising. Various CPUSA officials, including Jarvis Tyner and Joelle Fishman, have openly expressed support for the U.S. President and his agenda.
Since 1988, the CPUSA has not run its own candidates for president and vice-president, preferring instead to work through the Democratic Party. Its support for Obama in 2008 and again this year has been open and outspoken.

Photos of a forcibly-aborted seven-month-old unborn child lying next to his mother in a Chinese hospital are provoking outrage among viewers and demands for justice as they circulate on Chinese-language websites.
According to the Chinese news service Global Times, the woman in the photos is 23-year-old Feng Jianmei from the province of Ankang, who was “forced to the hospital and given an injection to kill her unborn baby on June 2 after her family failed to pay a 40,000-yuan ($6,320) fine, according to her family.”
Although authorities in the Zhenping district, where the abortion was carried out, claimed that the abortion was voluntary, The French Press Agency (AFP) says that it has confirmed with a source close to the family that the abortion was forced on the couple, and that the photos are authentic. Feng’s husband states that she was forced to sign papers granting permission for the abortion, according to the Global Times.
Chinese Blogger Zhao Chu, in a post linked to the Internet news portal Netease.com, said that such behavior goes “against the basic norms of civilized society,” and added that “there is no essential difference between our society” and the “slaughter in Iraq, Libya, Syria…Auschwitz” or “the Japanese gas chambers”.
