Banned Bear – Winnie Not Welcome

The idiots in charge of China’s internet censorship have just made themselves look even more childish and stupid than usual.

They have banned Winnie the Pooh!

All mention of Winnie is being scrubbed from websites and social media even as I write this. What has poor Winnie done to deserve this? It seems to go back to 2013 when President Xi visited the USA and the cartoon below was issued and spread wildly and widely.

There is something deeply wrong with a government totally devoid of a sense of humour. They are sick. Laughing (even at ourselves) is healthy. China isn’t.
