Octuple chins is not a good look.
A hug can be a caress or a real squeeze.
Freedom is translated differently in Chinese.. as it is in every different language. As an old saying goes.. when in Rome do as the Romans do.. When in China… do as Chinese do.. trying to be “American” in China.. (or any other nation) invariable leads to cultural clash.
So, is Tibet behind the Xi-topus’s back? I know the attempted cultural genocide there has been ongoing for more than half a century, but the recently intensified crackdowns on religion and nomadic traditions are far from “old news.”
Excellent portrayal of China today. I read that they’re also requiring Catholic churches to display a poster of Xi Jinping inside the church.
China is a communist country and the ENEMY
An old-fashioned, and very effective cartoon.
One of your best…. Creative
Unlike the USSR, China doesn’t champion socialist revolutions around the globe. They’ve latched on to capitalism & trade as a means to Chinese ascendence.
They are far more cynical than the old Soviets. Instead of revolution, they seek to corrupt governments, form imbalanced relationships & generally do anything that gives them advantage & weakens their competitors, especially us. The CCP wants to dominate & extinguish all dissent, both at home & abroad.
It’s not a repeat of the Cold War, but it is a battle of worldviews.
China has always been this way and being “communist” is just an after image.
Thank God the 7th tentacle has/ will not get Australia !
