Communist Countries Censor Egypt

Posted in Politics with tags , , , , , on February 8, 2011 by Ian Pham

As forecasted, both China and Vietnam are censoring all happenings in and around Egypt in frantic efforts to keep their people from finding out.  The events taking place in Egypt, not to mention Tunisia and elsewhere in the Middle East, are quite revolutionary in nature.  This is something that the Communists are extremely afraid of and will try everything to keep their people from mimicking.

The governments of Vietnam and China have censored all searches that include “Egypt” as a keyword.  According to Newsweek, China is regards the events happening in the Middle East as “a continuation of colored revolutions that toppled authoritarian post-Soviet regimes in Georgia, Ukraine, and Kyrgyzstan.”  It is obvious that this reasoning worries the Communists, as the global impacts of these events may lead to the toppling of their respective regimes as well.

If the people of Asia realized what was happening in Egypt and other parts of the Middle East, they would surely learn from these events and turn against the Communists.  The Communists of Vietnam and China understand this very well.  The chance of their populations rising up against the Party terrifies the Communist leaders, which is why they are doing everything they can to keep their people from making this dream a reality.  Information is a powerful weapon.
