Rebel Pepper: Honoring Constitution Day

Rebel Pepper: Honoring Constitution Day

Rebel Pepper (变态辣椒) marks China’s first Constitution Day with a drawing depicting President Xi Jinping with a Pinocchio-like nose poking a hole in the constitution. His caption reads:

I hear today is your honorable country’s first Constitution Day. I remember the constitution has been screwed by the for many years already, so I especially made this drawing to commemorate it.

聽說今天是貴國首個憲法紀念日啊,我記得這部憲法已經被黨日了很多年了呢,特作此畫紀念之

The caption uses a play on the word “day,” as in “Constitution Day,” which also is for “fuck” in the Sichuan . While Xi Jinping trumpeted “constitutionalism” in his administration’s early political rhetoric, he has simultaneously overseen a crackdown on activists who advocate for rule of law.
