China’s “Global Times” and treason

Catherine and I have noticed that recently, one of the American leaders of the English-language China-blogosphere has begun to work directly for the PRC’s propaganda organs.

We do not posit a direct equivalence between that American man’s life and the life of the American traitor Joe Dresnok, but we do see considerable similarities.

    I’d say Mr Dresniok was either out of his mind or attempted suicide- he ran through a minefield to defect to North Korea.

  2. Ned Kelly says:

    Yes and then immediately after Dresnok crossed into North Korea, his ass totally belonged to North Korea and there was no possibility of turning back. He made a rash impulsive decision and then remained stuck with it.

    That’s actually a lot more forgivable than an American in China who makes a gradual series of carefully considered decisions to prostitute himself to China’s Propaganda Machine under absolutely no pressure at all. Dresnok was a madman, but a totally free American journalist who chooses to sell himself to China’s Propaganda Machine is a disgusting whore.

    Having read one of his articles there online a moment ago, I’m inclined to agree.

    Although he isn’t yet where Mr Whiteley is…

    Wow, thanks for that informative link, JR.

    I want to emphasise that I think there’s nothing wrong with a Westerner cooperating with and even helping China’s government in some areas. When I lived there I was of direct assistance to some government members in rather high places. There are lots of good, honourable things Western friends of China can do FOR China’s benefit, and they often involve cooperation with, or even service for, some governmental entities. And that’s fine as long as the government entities you’re serving are doing truly decent things like, oh, saving earthquake victims, or preserving historical relics, etc.

    But working directly for China’s propaganda machine is not merely a matter of cooperation; it’s a matter of transferring one’s national allegiance to the PRC. Any American who does so without voluntarily going to the US Embassy and renouncing his US citizenship, is in my opinion a moral coward and a traitor.
