Cover Your Mouth When You Yawn

You want some boring old dog-bites-man? “A 46-year-old resident of Henan province who was abducted in March 2009 while talking to people in public about Falun Gong died in Zhengzhou prison camp last month . . .” Who was this dead kook? “Mr. Tian Yun was from Houguolei Village of Henan in Central China.” And what happened?

Shortly after being detained on March 27, 2009, Tian was “sentenced” in a sham trial at Hui County Court to three years in a prison camp. He was subsequently taken to Zhengzhou Prison in Xinmin. According to sources inside China, Tian was beaten, shocked with electric batons, and deprived of water at the prison camp. The camp guards tried to force Tian to denounce Falun Gong but he refused. He continued to be tortured and died in custody as a result of the abuse.

Yeah, yeah, happens every day, almost. Ho-hum. If you have insomnia, you can read the rest of the article here. The rest of the world can return to our regularly scheduled programming: the ongoing, eternal appeasement of the monsters in Beijing. Must never upset those monsters, ever. Being a ChiCom means being able to torture and kill at will — while the world simpers at your feet.

How Immigration Changes Britain

Almost nothing is discussed as badly in America or Europe as the subject of immigration. And one reason is that it remains almost impossible to have any sensible or rational public discussion of its consequences.
