China Blocks HBO After John Oliver Compares Xi To Pooh

China has blocked HBO after host John Oliver devoted a considerable amount of time criticizing President Xi Jinping and China's notorious crackdowns on dissent, at a time when Xi is trying to rebrand himself. 

In addition to calling out China over human rights violations and various forms of propaganda, Oliver pointed out that Xi is very sensitive Winnie the Pooh comparisons, which Xi has censored due to Chinese social media users using Pooh memes to mock him over the removal of presidential term limits. 

Xi “is very sensitive about his perceived resemblance to Winnie the Pooh," said Oliver. 

The Daily Newsreports that HBO.com has been blocked for 100% of Chinese internet users following the segment - citing internet monitoring website Greatfire.org

Oliver also touched on China's $1 trillion "One Belt One Road" initiative of economic expansion through new international trade routes as well as an infrastructure expansion in over 60 countries. Oliver notes that China has produced a "propaganda video" to tell the world how good the deal is. 

The HBO host also called China out over the "most intense crackdown on human rights since Tiananmen square" for assigning "social credit scores" to people, as well as Muslim reeducation camps that have recently made headlines. 

Other sites which have been blocked by China's "Great Firewall" include the New York Times, Facebook and Twitter.

Pantera - A new level - YouTube

Now a new look in my eyes my spirit rise
Forget the past
Present tense works and lasts
Got shit on, pissed on, spit on
Stepped on, fucked with
Pointed at by lesser men

New life in place of old life
Unscarred by trials

A new level
Of confidence
And power

Demanding plea for unity between us all
United stand
Death before divided fall
In mock military order
Vulgar power
Impatient because time is shorter

New life in place of old life
Unscarred by trials

A new level
Of confidence
And power

That's right

No fucking surrender
Can't lose

A new level
Of confidence
And power

A new level
Of confidence
And power

Life kills

Chumba is a guy who thinks very highly of himself yet is frustrated by his inability to live up to his expectations.  His expectations have crushed him and will forever keep him from accomplishing anything.  Hence that is why he is a nasty little man.

Mosley, the Best way to deal with this loser is to just remind him of the fact that he went to a great high school with the best teachers LA had to offer yet he has amounted to ZILCH, NADA etc LOL
