The Chinese Year of the Pig…Perhaps the year of the Chicken is more appropriate?

Jan. 24: Chinese artist Chen Jingzhong puts finishing touches on a sculpture of a mother pig and piglets at his workshop in Xiamen, southeast China.Debbie Schlussel is reporting on her blog that China has gone dhimmi and is banning pigs in advertising.

Though I have no respect for Communist China–its slave labor, lack of human rights, one-child-per-family policy, etc., etc., etc.–I thought, at least, the country got tough on Islamic extremism. The Chinese government has raided and destroyed camps populated by Chinese Muslim Uighur (pronounced “Wee-gur”) extremists. As I’ve written, last year, several Uighurs were Al-Qaeda terrorists held in Guantanamo Bay, and China protested their release (to Albania). But, as I also wrote, China gave millions to HAMAS, last year.

And there’s another stark indication that China’s not so tough. The country is as PC when it comes to the “Religion of Peace” as we are. The proof is in the new prohibition of pigs in advertising and on TV in light of next months Year of the Pig–all as a sop to a tiny group of Chinese Muslims. Interesting how the country bows to Islam, but is quite tough on the practice of Christianity.

Is China is becoming more “tolerant” or are they cowards?
