One doesn’t know whether to laugh or cry. When one of the modern world’s most brutal and fascist nations — Communist China, run like a brazen bully by the Chinese Communist Party — equates the revered and freedom-loving Dalai Lama with the German Nazis of the Hitler regime because they say he advocates policies that would expel lightskinned Han (yellow) Chinese from darker-skinned Tibetan regions, you know something is very sick and wrong inside China. But that is just what a state-run newspaper in China has done, accusing the Dalai Lama  of having ”Nazi” tendencies.

Recently,  the state-run news media inside Communist China sought to equate the Dalai Lama, a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, with the Nazis and their genocidal war on European Jews.

How do I know this? I read it in the New York Times here in free and democratic Taiwan. If you get the Times where you live, maybe you read it, too.

The Times article describing the crass Chinese chutzpah in calling the Dalai Lama a Nazi is online for anyone to read, plain as day.

But here is the quote from the state-run publication in China: “The remarks of the Dalai Lama remind us of the cruel Nazis during the Second World War…How similar it is to the Holocaust committed by Hitler on the Jews!”

Andrew Jacobs, writing for the Times, explained it this way: The comments referred to past statements in which the Dalai Lama condemned policies that encouraged Han [Yellow Lighter-skinned] Chinese migration to [Darker-skinned] Tibetan areas and others that favored Chinese-language instruction over Tibetan language in predominately Tibetan schools.

The Times headlined its piece: “China Attacks Dalai Lama in Online Burst”.

Jacobs, a veteran Times reporter in Beijing who has also produced and directed a touching documentary about Holocaust survivors living in the Catskills, wrote: “As the Chinese government’s relationship with the Dalai Lama, the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader, has gone from bad to worse over the years, Beijing’s propaganda machine has churned out increasingly florid descriptions of him. He has been called a ‘jackal, a ‘wolf in sheep’s clothing’ and, routinely, a splittist.’”

Now China’s propaganda brutes seek to try to equate the Dalai Lama with Hitler and the Nazis? Is Mel Brooks directing this tragedy or does Hu Jintao really think anyone will buy this nonsense?

When China starts in calling the dear Dalai Lama a Nazi, you know something is rotten in Bejing. Shame on China’s propaganda puppets for such ugly name-calling!
