Maybe they were feeling nostalgic for the good old days of Mao Tse-Tung, the most prolific mass murderer in human history, greatly admired by American Democrats. All but five of almost 3,000 National People’s [sic] Congress delegates voted to remove term limits so that President Xi Jinping can stay in power for as long as he likes (https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-03-11/china-ties-future-to-xi-as-congress-scraps-president-term-limits).
Says the Bloomberg news report, “dissenting lawmakers were not immediately identified.” Well, heck, that’s easy. Just identify the severed heads.
American leftids are always praising Red China and holding it up as a role model. How they would have loved to get rid of term limits when one of their guys was in office! The New York Times’ Tom Friedman, who has not one but two swimming pools on his palatial estate, has invoked China’s example for dealing with Climbit Change–never mind all that messy Constitutional procedure: just do it. And anyone who doesn’t like it–oh, out to the cornfield with ’em!
Oh, how they’d love to do that here!
