Look, Comrades, No Lines!: China’s New Leader Announced With The Rise Of The “Red Nobility” Class

We previously discussed how the United States was sharply criticized in a government-supported newspaper in China for the long lines of voters who had to wait for hours to cast their ballots. Now, the happiest place on Earth, has announced its new leader: Xi Jinging. Xi was selected without any lines of citizens, who of course were not allowed to vote at all.

The regular decade transition occurred by an orchestrated vote of the Community Party Congress with his appointment as general secretary after a meeting of senior Communists. The Chinese people were informed of the selection as Xi walked into the Great Hall of the People with other Politburo members.

The rise of Xi to power is viewed as another affirmation of a new “red nobility” class — leaders who come from families with a long communist power pedigree. Xi is the son of a hero of the revolution and three other members have similar family ties. With continuing scandals involving the gathering of huge wealth by Communist leaders, China now fits every definition of an aristocracy using Communist controls to protect its power and wealth. Think of Louis XIV in a Mao jacket.

  7. Gene, We’ve had this discussion previously. I informed you would only call me a douche once and you told me you were scrappy..let’s not keep having the same converstion because it’s probably moot. But, it is a small world.

    Mike, I also rile up “dem conservatives too.” I like to rile up all kinds of folks when I see them getting full of themselves, something none of us are immune to. That’s why I constantly rile up Gene, he is really full of himself. The guys who get their balls busted the most in a dugout or locker room are the ones who think their shit doesn’t stink. Did you notice I didn’t use any Jew slangs. It’s obviously something that hurts you and that is NEVER my intent. So, being a gentleman, I decided to forego that.
