Red China bans Winnie the Pooh

The total value of Chinese stocks have fallen 40% in the last three years, putting Chairman Xi in a precarious place politically. Imagine if the Dow Jones Industrial Average slid 10,000 points in three years.

Well, it has gone up 8,000 in less than two years, as stocks rallied once we elected Donald John Trump president.

But Xi is on top of things. He just banned a new Disney movie, "Christopher Robin," because it features Winnie the Pooh.

Conservative Chinese people mock Xi as Winnie the Pooh.


The Hollywood Reporter wrote about the denial of the release of "Christopher Robin" in China.

The Hollywood Reporter said, "No reason was given for the denial, but a source pinned the blame on China's crackdown on images of the Winnie the Pooh character, which is featured in a central role in Christopher Robin.

"Last summer, authorities began blocking pictures of Winnie the Pooh on social media given that the character has become a symbol of the resistance in China with foes of the ruling Communist Party, namely Chinese leader Xi Jinping. Bloggers have drawn comparisons between the pudgy bear and Xi, which has put the country's censors in overdrive.

"In June, Chinese authorities blocked HBO after Last Week Tonight host John Oliver mocked Xi's sensitivity over being compared to Winnie the Pooh."

The story said China also banned the Oprah Winfrey vehicle, "A Wrinkle in Time." Maybe Xi though Winfrey sounded too much like Winnie.

  1. Commies want to control social media by whatever means at their disposal, whether it be to ban "hate speech" or memes mocking their hypocrisy. Thus in China we get banned memes like Winnie the Pooh, while over here libs, commies and neocons want to ban the president from social media.

    Hilarious.

    1. Facebook and Twitter will be more than happy to support Chairman Li in whatever he does to bring back control over the Chinese people. They will gladly show the results of activism where citizens are killed by the government's troops.

  3. Obviously XI has never heard of the Streisand Effect.
