China's Nobel Peace Prize laureate Liu Xiaobo
In September the commies in Beijing warned the Nobel Peace Prize committee against awarding the prize to jailed Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo.
Liu Xiaobo in 1989 was in Tiananmen Square (thousands rallied for democracy in China) when the commies committed their massacre. Liu Xiaobo continued his quest for greater freedoms in China. In 2008 he help authored a manifesto titled Charter 08 (Lingba Xianzhang) which advocated political reform and democratization in The Middle Kingdom (China).
In 2009 Liu was arrested for “inciting subversion of state power,” and sentenced to 11 years in prison (a commie gulag). October, 2010 the Norwegian Nobel Institute, ignoring the demands from the Beijing communist awarded the Nobel Peace Prize to Liu Xiaobo.
This is a magnificent accomplishment for the people of China (excluding the commies) as this is the first time the award has ever been awarded to a person in China. Here are a few points (there are 19 points in all) of the Charter 08 manifesto which seems to be a burr in the saddle for the communist:
Election of Public Officials, Freedom to Form Groups, Freedom to Assemble, Freedom of Expression, Freedom of Religion, and Protection of Private Property.

The Beijing commies desire world recognition, now when they get it in the form of a Nobel Peace Prize, they issues stern warnings and condemnation. At least this time the award was given to a deserving noble person. Not like in 2007 when it was awarded to that snake oil salesman Al Gore for his hoax upon the world of man-made global warming. Or in 2009 when it was awarded to President Obama for doing nothing, but for his potential for doing something.
With the awarding of this prize to Liu Xiaobo the prestige of this award was resurrected from the gutter to the lofty position envisioned by it’s founder.
