Spielberg’s ‘stand’ against Red China’s injustices

Filmmaker Steven Spielberg has stepped down from his advisory position for the 2008 summer Olympic games in Beijing, China. His reasoning: China hasn’t done enough economically in the Sudan to halt the genocide in Darfur.

Silly me, I would’ve thought that Spielberg (a former Eagle Scout who famously stepped down from his Boy Scout advisory position to protest the organization’s stance against homosexuality) would’ve stepped down to protest China’s human rights violations. They are very numerous: the persecution of Christians (and other religious faiths who choose to attend secretive, non-registered churches), the treatment of dissidents like Wei Jingsheng, Han Dongfang, Wang Dan, et al. The infamous Bamboo Gulags. I remember reading about one dissident who was beaten so badly that his testicles were crushed.
