Commie Control in China-editors Canned For Misspelling Xi Jinping’s name

Posted by w_thames_the_d on July 10, 2013

China’s neo nazi , comrade Xi Jinping is pissed at people who spell his name wrong. He is so pissed that he had a couple editors fired for just that, see the excerpt below.

I don’t know, but I would like to think that comrade Xi has much better things to do with his time then to worry about typos…


A local paper in Xiamen in southeast China’s Fujian province was forced to buy back copies of its paper on June 26 after it was discovered that their report on China’s Communist Party general secretary and president, Xi Jinping, used the wrong characters to spell his name. Two of the editors responsible have since been suspended following the incident, our sister paper Want Daily reports.
