For a long time I’ve refrained – just barely – from drawing any direct, unreserved comparisons between Nazi Germany and today’s China.
So it’s cartoon time again. I dedicate this one simply to the People’s Republic of China, who in this Olympic year have demonstrated that theirs is a sick country, devoid of any rule of law, intoxicated unto collective psychosis with official lies about history, and now courting the same kind of hubris which ultimately left Nazi Germany a heap of burning rubbish.

The smokestacks and polluted skies in this clip are in fact more typical of today’s China than Germany ever was; so are the physical exercises Donald Duck is forced to do. And these lyrics,
We bring the world new order! Everyone of foreign race, will love the master race, when we bring to the world, ‘dis order!
describe the stream of consciousness not only of the majority of Chinese Communist Party members, but perhaps even more so of their besotted Western admirers who have an intellectual-wanker’s crush on the appearance of Chinese power. Not that China is as powerful as it appears to them, but lust is blind.
