Traditional Chinese Cannibalism

5,000 year of civilisation has produced the following Chinese folk remedy:

Lin Zongxiu, from the southwestern province of Sichuan, heard in 2008 that soup made with a man’s head could help cure her daughter who had suffered from psychiatric problems for years, the Chengdu Commercial newspaper reported.

Lin and her husband decided to enlist the help of a man in December who knocked unconscious a drunk 76-year-old passer-by before beheading him, the paper claimed….

…The couple then gave their 25-year-old daughter soup made from the man’s head, and duck.

Coincidentally our research assistant, Ivan, has discovered some video footage of the preparation of Traditional Chinese Medicine at a PRC state-owned enterprise somewhere near Shenzhen:

    SW China is comprised mostly of minorities. So don’t make broad generalizations attributing 5000 years of culture to atrocities committed by a segment of society.

  2. Ned Kelly says:

    Ah, I see. You’re saying MINORITIES are savages, but Han Chinese are not.

    Riiiggght…

  3. Ned Kelly says:

    During the Cultural Revolution there were instances of cannibalism by northern, Han Chinese just outside of Beijing. Cannibalism is an old Han tradition.

    Ned,

    You don’t understand China. It is an ancient Chinese tradition to attribute all savagery and atrocities to national minorities. The Cultural Revolution was an atrocity. So it would have been instigated by some filthy national minorities such as a Tibetan called Mao Zedong, his Manchurian concubine and her Mongolian lapdogs. Understood!

    Actually, Northern China is one of the few places where cannibalism was more or less non-existent all throughout history.

    It’s incidental and very uncommon in most places, like Armin Meiwes eating some guy’s penis or Jeffrey Dahmer eating bits of its victims.

    In short it’s more accurate to say that Josef Fritzl, Adolf Hitler, Armin Meiwes, and John Wayne Gacy are more representative of Europeans and their descendants as a whole than this one guy.

    Christian values for sure.

    Adolf Hitler persecuted Christians, just like the Communists do. It’s typical of appallingly ignorant mainland Chinese to conflate “White” with “Christian”.

    Oh, sorry, in Communist Chinglish the word is, “Christ-err-suh”, which evidently has something to do with emaciated Communist Party Princesses clutching the crosses on their necks and singing the Chinglish lyrics of a pop song, “Love is panic, love is holy”, whatever the fuck that means.

    As for cannibalism in the Beijing area, go and read the book “Hungry Ghosts”, which of course is banned in the PRC because it reveals too many – shall we say – FAMILY secrets.

    And what’s this new tactic of CCP apologists distinguishing between Northern China and the rest, or between Han Chinese and other “Chinese” nationalities? What are you, a SPLITTIST? How DARE you imply that there are any cultural differences between any Chinese!

    China has always been a united nation, ever since it belonged to the Mongols!

    Adolf Hitler, in his personal letters, described himself as a devout Catholic. Not really surprising. He persecuted homosexuals too, since you seem to believe who he decided to kill is passing any kind of moral judgment on said group.

    And what’s this new tactic of CCP apologists distinguishing between Northern China and the rest

    New CCP tactic? That’s news to me. Why I’m sure you hear a lot about “Northern China” is because most of your “racist” stereotypes are based off of Southerners and especially Southern minorities.

  10. Ned Kelly says:

    Calling himself a “devout Catholic” doesn’t make him one. People call themselves lots of things that they really aren’t.
