Red China Bans Anti-Communist Rabbit Cartoon
With the Year of the Rabbit set to commence on February 3, 2011 — Chinese New Year — the ruling Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has censored a fairytale cartoon in which a community of oppressed rabbits rises up against their oppressive tiger government, which bears a striking resemblance to the government in China.
The cartoon depicts the tale of a village of innocent little bunny rabbits that live in relative comfort and joy when all of a sudden, a shipment of tainted bottled milk causes all of the baby bunnies to turn green and burst to their deaths — a satirical reference to a poisonous milk scandal in China in 2008 which resulted in the deaths of six infants.
Following the deaths of the baby rabbits, the adult rabbits are then forced to sit through a political indoctrination session by a group of militant tigers with red banners in the background that read: “Serve the rabbits. Build a harmonious forest” — again, echoing President Hu Jintao’s promise to establish a “harmonious society.”
The rabbits are then engulfed in flames as the communistic tigers move in on the village, seizing private property, bulldozing homes and brutally suppressing the bunny population, warning them to “not speak out of turn.”
