Netizen Voices: Bo Xilai Reminds Me of Someone

Hu Xijin, chief editor of the state-run Global Times, shared his thoughts on the Bo Xilai trial via Weibo:

胡锡进: I don’t want to discuss what crime Bo committed–that is up to the court to decide. I just want to say that your subordinate Wang Lijun caused such a stir, and that your wife killed a man. By being drawn into these big scandals, you have already seriously defamed the Party and the government. We low-level Party members work with all our might, but we cannot counterbalance the havoc wrought from the top by someone like you. I hope that no matter how the court judges you, your final statement will be a sincere apology to the people and the Party.


Netizen Javacai蔡 comments:

Javacai蔡: “Your right-hand man defected,  your wife committed a crime, and you yourself have defamed the organization!” …The portrait over Tiananmen is now a backside view.


Mao Zedong’s “right-hand man” Lin Biao died in 1971 when his plane crashed in Mongolia–it appears he was fleeing the country after a failed coup attempt. Mao’s wife Jiang Qing was sentenced to life in prison for atrocities she committed during the Cultural Revolution. Mao’s effect on “the organization” speaks for itself.
