A Quick Message for our Funny Little Friends in Beijing


To our Funny Little Friends in Beijing:

You guys have messed things up again for your employer, big time. Your illegal kidnapping and torture of Ge Xun has found its way to New York Times and Wall Street Journal, just ahead of Xi Jinping’s US visit. I love to see Xi’s face when President Obama lectures him about China’s failing legal system and deteriorating human rights record.

Don’t give me credit for it. You deserve what you are going to get.


C (you can call me by my Chinese name, hehehehe….)

    Your Chinese name? Oh but your English name is so much cuter! The one you changed to after I explained to you that your other English name – the one you used at school – was just no good. I mean if you kept introducing yourself to Americans as “I’m Hello Kitty”, they wouldn’t understand.

    No, your new English name is much more fun. Hey, let’s ask our Funny Little Friends in Beijing for THEIR English names! Then they can have fun practicing their English with us!

    But Mr. Ge’s greatest sin, it appears, was his zealous embrace of Twitter, which has long been blocked in China along with Facebook, YouTube and tens of thousands of other Web sites that the government deems a threat to its hold on power.

    My statistics of the past two days bear witness that Twitter is a powerful thing. Stats exploded once you tweeted my post about Ge Xun’s detention, C. A..

    Btw, foreign citizens who are not of Chinese origins (interesting kind of blood-is-thicker-than-water approach by the state security, btw) shouldn’t feel to sure that the authorities’ loving embrace will remain limited to the sons and daughters of the Yellow River. Given that Beijing can trust its foreign partners – it will all be business as usual, and we all need to understaaand China -, it’s only a matter of time when foreigners of all kinds of backgrounds will be at risk. And why not? After all, it’s a good way to get to understand China, isn’t it? Besides, doing otherwise would spell discrimination between foreigners and nationals, so to speak. Just wondering if some Great-Friends-of-the-Chinese-People will demand some extraterritoriality, soon, for having been nice and cooperative.

    JR, I can tell you from firsthand experience that the protection of the lawful interests of private US citizens is absolutely the LOWEST on the list of the US State Department’s priorities.
