America is far ahead of China. China needs to suppress stuff and censor the internet and whatever. The American people are so ****ing brainwashed there isn't even any need for that.

Didn't China elect Xi for life? The closest equivalents we have to that here are Pelosi, McConnell and Biden.

Nah, this is giving the American govt too much credit. Look at the coronavirus response for a perfect example. Americans have to fight over every little thing. We're brainwashed, but in conflicting directions that makes us not even function as a cohesive whole. Where as in China they act as the perfect 1 billion member ant colony. Filled with docile, robotic Asian ants.

Well, sort of. It was a legislative body that voted to change the country's consitution, not the Chinese people.

They aren't banning TikTok in the US.

Trump's been using the bully pulpit to pressure ByteDance. They're going to divest and Microsoft is going to take over TikTok in the US.

Bytedance offers to forgo stake in TikTok to clinch US deal

A couple of people started burning bibles at a protest and now the Trumptards are calling "the left" fascist ignoring the plethora of right wing groups doing organized book burnings including the most heinous one of all, the Harry Potter burnings.

Book burning is just dumb and outdated in general

The guy who shouted a spoiler about Harry Potter to people camped out waiting in line for the book too come out was a much better way to **** on Harry Potter fans

And he sold shirts with "Snape killed Dumbledore" with the page number on it. That's just pure delicious evil.
