Shocking new footage emerged from China this week showing police parading rule-breakers through the streets carrying placards with their names and photo identification, an act of “public shaming” condemned by the global community.
“Four masked suspects in hazmat suits — carrying placards displaying their photos and names — were paraded Tuesday in front of a large crowd in Guangxi region’s Jingxi city, state-run Guangxi News said,” reports the AFP.
“The four were accused of transporting illegal migrants while China’s borders remain largely closed due to the pandemic, the newspaper said. Jingxi is near the Chinese border with Vietnam,” adds the international news agency.

'BIG TECH MATTERS': Facebook Under Fire for Censoring Report on BLM Founder’s Luxury Homes
Facebook faced a growing backlash on their own platform Friday after the social network blocked users from sharing a New York Post report on the luxury homes owned by a founder of ‘Black Lives Matter.’
“How is that not a story? Black Lives Matter is a powerful entity, they raised more than $90 million just last year, they should not therefore be exempt from scrutiny or accountability, but Big Tech apparently has their back and says, ‘Nothing to see here, we’re going to censor this,’” Joe Concha said. “It is chilling.”

The New York Post responded Friday after social media giant Facebook prevented users from sharing a story regarding the co-founder of ‘Black Lives Matter,’ labeling their decision “arbitrary and laughable.”
“This decision is so arbitrary as to be laughable. Does Facebook know how many newspapers, magazine and websites highlight the real estate purchases of the rich and famous? The next time People magazine covers Kim Kardashian’s latest mansion purchase, will it violate any community standards? How about running a picture of the resort Ted Cruz is staying at?” writes the Post Editorial Board.
“No, this rule has not been and will not be applied in any fair manner. It again highlights just how much power these social media companies have over our lives, and our nation. They monopolized the market and became the main aggregators of news,” adds the paper.
“While failing abysmally for years to stop the torrent of truly harmful pedophilic, violent, personally abusive, terroristic, wildly inaccurate and hateful content that spews onto their platforms daily, they’ll step in to censor and cover for Joe Biden. They’ll cover for China. And now they’ll cover for Black Lives Matter,” concludes the Board.

AGAIN!? Bernie Defends Communist China, Says Regime ‘Reduced Extreme Poverty in Last 50 Years’
Far-left Senator Bernie Sanders double-down on his praise for brutal communist governments during a Fox News Town Hall event this week; saying China has helped “reduce extreme poverty” over the last fifty years.
“Many experts look at that moment on 60 Minutes when you talked about Fidel Castro’s literacy program as a turning point in this race. Do you regret saying what you said at that time?” asked the Fox News moderators.
“No,” Sanders fired-back. “Look, I have spent my entire life fighting for working people and fighting for democracy.”
“So if you look at a country like China, for example, is China a democracy? Of course, it’s not a democracy. It is an authoritarian country and Xi is taking it in a bad direction but what can we say about China in the last 50 years?” asked Sanders.
“Would anybody in their right mind deny that extreme poverty in China has been reduced? Can anyone deny that? Of course not,” Sanders concluded.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders stunned viewers across the country Sunday when he publicly praised Cuban dictator Fidel Castro; saying he implemented a “massive literacy program” in the island-nation once he “came into office.”
Sanders was speaking with 60 Minutes’ Anderson Cooper when he was asked if he stood-by comments he made years earlier praising the socialist revolutionary.
“He educated their kids, gave them healthcare, totally transformed the society,” said Sanders decades ago.
“We’re very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba. But you know, it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad! When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing? Even though Fidel Castro did it?” Sanders asked Cooper.
