This guy seems to know China pretty well. He called the chicoms ‘mongrels and bastards’. Pretty much sums up their lineage and razon de etre.
Beijing has hit back at Clive Palmer over his explosive spray against China, condemning his remarks as absurd and irresponsible.
The Chinese embassy in Canberra on Tuesday rebuked the federal MP for a tirade on ABC television in which he called the Chinese government “mongrels” and “bastards”.
“The words of Mr Clive Palmer MP are absurd and irresponsible, which are full of ignorance and prejudice,” a spokesperson for the embassy told AAP.
But the Palmer United Party (PUP) leader isn’t showing any sign of backing down from his remarks.
When asked if he stood by his use of the term “mongrel” to describe Australia’s largest trading partner, Mr Palmer said it was “an accurate reflection” of a government that executed its own people.
“They have one-day trials, they don’t have any democracy,” he told Fairfax radio station 3AW on Tuesday.
“I feel for the Chinese people that live under such tyranny.”
His lack of remorse threatens to fan the flames even further, after politicians of all persuasions spent the day trying to distance themselves from his remarks.
