Farrell Watch: Assistant Professor Throws a Hissy Fit

when presented with the opinion that the US political system just may be as (or more) corrupt and oppressive (in its own way, of course) as the Chinese one:

You don’t know what you are talking about. You don’t know how the petition system works in China … You admit that you know relatively little about China … You don’t understand how petitioning systems work in autocratic regimes … You prefer arguing with the voices in your head … You accuse people of Orientalism for making the apparently reasonable point …

A warning: your score on ‘stupid’ and ‘irrelevant’ is mounting rapidly…

Uh-oh. Sounds like a mandarin is about to teach the ungrateful peasant a lesson.

Hilariously, one of Farrell’s idiot-groupies replies to the phrase “UK, which has an unelected leader”:

The UK does not have an unelected leader. Its leader is Gordon Brown MP, who was elected in 2005.

Right. Elected by 20,000 people from in the middle of nowhere to the lower house of the parliament – oh yeah, that makes all the difference.
