Showing just how tolerant they have become about free speech and expression, the Chinese government has banned a cartoon about cute little bunnies raising up against their tiger oppressors.

(This cartoon makes Itchy and Scratchy look like the Care Bears.)

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.”

The New American

I'm not really surprised that this was banned in China; the idea of the people raising up against their oppressors must scare the hell out of their government, especially the way the cute little bunnies rip the heads off their oppressors.

Maybe this film needs a wider audience to inspire all peoples to raise up against those who are oppressing them, no matter what country they live in.

Oh, *snip*. That's one tough cartoon to watch. You're right, there's nothing at all here for the faint of heart. At the same time, even without subtitles, its easy to see whats going on. One focused group of fed up people will topple a government, no matter how big and ugly it is. Just look at whats happening in Bellarus, or now, Egypt. I wonder if this has the chinese government a little rattled...

Those tigers rip the crap out of those poor little bunnies but, in the end, the cartoon shows that no matter how harmless those you oppress seem to be, they can turn around and bite you in the ass.

I hope TPTB see this cartoon and it scares the hell out of them!
