Hollywood, Google, Apple, and now the NBA. Corporate communist coddlers, one and all.

Don't think industry is coddling communism as much as they're trying to protect their markets.
If they have to take down 1 show every 5 billion dollars, they'll have gallons of White-Out at the ready.

Nulli, did you think they were in it for the art?

Coddling China would be giving them control of trade rules in Asia.... which is what Nulli's Dear Leader did.

I guess Jack Nicholson is also persona non grata on the Mainland, after his racist turn in 'The Departed'...

You no come back here!

You gotta love an opponent that puts up a good fight. Thanks China, but it's about to end pretty quick. We see what's going on now. You pee-pee in our coke.

This is the world of Liberalism. This same censorship has already started happening here, the only difference is it's not the government involved, it's the Liberal populace. There have been many shows in the last decade that have been censored, taken off air, people fired, etc. because Liberals didn't agree with what they said. Argue it all you want but this is exactly what happens in America and you can't deny it. The only way Liberals will argue it is by starting their sentence with "Yeah, but..." and give some explanation as to how their censorship is different.

And yet, this same censorship existed in America prior to Trump so you are just showing how biased and hateful you are. Trump didn't start it, he's just a master of it.

Liberals didn't ban the show and are against the ban.

Oh grow up. Liberals have nothing to do with it. It's the world of communist China.

And South Park is a canary in the coal mine.

And you are a maroon.
