Red Song Turned Green?

The news of Bo Xilai being 'sacked' by Beijing was released on 15th March, and Chongqing officials setup this green board in the famous Chongqing square saying: no one is allowed to dance and sing in this park at anytime, due to noise that may affect public health and good rest.

The central park of Chongqing was one of the main spots where people were ordered by Bo Xilai to sing and dance red (Maoist) songs since March last year. People have gathered that to watch song and dance every night since last year.

One blogger says: Only last week, TV news reported a teacher sang a red song that reduced her cancer pain, now we are forced not to sing.

Another blogger: we citizens were suddenly forced to sing, now suddenly forced not to sing; When will we able to have a proper ticket and vote for ourselves, and to decide what we want to do?

China Uncensored   

When film producer Chris Meledandri created the comedy "Despicable Me 2", he did not expect it to be blocked by the Chinese censors, but it was, 3 years ago. Why? Only the Chinese people know: the main character, the super villain Gru, bears a striking resemblance to the former communist regime leader, Jiang Zemin.

But now, only days after the news that Zhou Yongkang was arrested, Zhou being the main "hit man" in the Jiang Zemin faction of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the film is to be released in cinemas in China on 10th January 2014.

The sound actor for the super villain Gru, is Deng Chao, an experienced voice character actor. Deng expressed his excitement at the news of the film's release: "the little yellow man in the film made such a deep impression. I am sure everyone will have a fun time in the new year."

An independent commentator Xing Tianhang says: "Beside the image of the character in the film being associated with the former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin, the title, 'Despicable Me', is just right to the point when related to Jiang. It was not allowed to be broadcast in China previously. But the communist regime has allowed it to be aired in China at this moment. This may indicate that the Jiang faction at the top of Chinese communist regime has become a thing of the past. Furthermore, the news that the film is to be aired in January 2014, was released through the Communist Propaganda Bureau, which could also mean that Zhou Yongkang has no influence on this Bureau any more, and that the next target for the present regime may be Jiang Zemin.
