    Chinese food: It’s what’s for dinner tonight!

    • But on meditating about the food, one must realise that there is no food.

      Or something.

        Nirvana can wait, I’m hungry.

        There is food, but you must realise, “There Is No Spoon. Then you’ll see, that it is not the Spoon that bends, it is only the Uyghur.”

        • But is the spoon the Uyghur ….?

          Aw, forget it!

            Morpheus offers you the choice of the Red pill in one hand and the Blue pill in the other. Choose wisely and you might see why there is No Spoon.

          • After taking any pill, the spoon might actually talk to you.

    Bonfire of the insanity?

    Do tell. I guess this means that wee Justin has not been able to sell a Chinese translation of M103 to his most admired government. At least on the topic of dealing with Muslims, I do tend to favour China.

  • Arrest the mullahs.
    Close the mosques.
    Confiscate all the money associated with them.

    The response of the UN’s Human Rights Commission so far has been, “Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.”

      The UN is ranting about muslim terrorists in Burma, but will never do anything to piss off the Chinese. Muslims fighting commies, everyone buy pop corn, sit back, and enjoy.

      Speaking of the UN’s HRC!

        OMG this is wonderful.
        I am passing it on.

      • Great speech and vid.

    • Watchman

      I think it’s just the UNHCR being practical: the Chinese are not whites and thus immune from charges of human rights violations because of this. The Chinese are not susceptible to extortion based on things previous generations have done and current generations are now responsible for providing compensation into the distant future.

  • They do this for every religion, though.

    • ontario john

      The Chinese believe in equality of persecution.

      • Well, that’s “progressive” of them.

        • RubyMontana

          Good point.

          • It is true. They do that with Christians but Christians don’t murder, so …

      pisslam is not a religion.

    Mein Kampf (ie My Jihad) has been banned in Germany, so why not?

  • barryjr

    Shithead’s head must be imploding, the country he admires is threatening his favorite religion. Oh my what shall he do?

      It was bound to implode sooner or later, the pressure on the outside being so much greater than any resistance on the inside. Simple physics.

  • Good move. Everyone in the West should be doing that. Make Islam illegal – it is not a religion but a political sect pretending to be a religion.
