Joke post on US as a “multi-party tyranny” pulled from Weibo

The following post by Dong Mian Xiong Ge (冬眠熊哥), a user with more than 21,000 followers, was deleted from Sina Weibo sometime before 2pm Hong Kong time today, May 28, 2012. [More on deleted posts at the WeiboScope Search, by the Journalism and Media Studies Centre].

The post pokes fun at China’s recently released report on the human rights situation in the United States, which said the US was “to a certain degree a tyranny.”

All one-party nations have bitterly criticized the United States for being a multi-party dictatorship. Oh Yeah!

The post includes a photo strip showing five world dictators, past and present, with red captions that say: “The US is a tyranny!”

Dong Mian Xiong Ge’s original Chinese post follows:

所有一党民主国家都痛斥美国是多党专制国家。噢耶!
