When Christian Bale went to see a blind Chinese activist Chen Guangcheng last week, the plainclothes police guarding Chen reportedly roughed up the actor.
When confronted the PRC Foreign Ministry spokesperson blamed the incident on Bale, saying:
What I understand is that the actor was invited by the director Zhang Yimou to attend the movie premiere. He was not invited to any village in Shandong to create news or make a film.
If he wants to create news, I don’t think that would be welcomed by China.
Chen is just one of many activists that are under house arrest as a result of the ‘Arab Spring.’ Almost all are in for trumped up charges, if the authorities even file charges. The only reason for the mass jailings is to maintain the absolute power of the Communist Chinese Party over the Chinese people and others that have been or are in the process of being ‘assimilated.’
How long before most of the people under the control of the Chinese Communist Party have had enough?
