Imperious leader of far-far-Leftist totalitarian group cracks down on critic

A recent Los Angeles Times article tells us that the Chinese government has cracked down on a man, Guo Degang, who is perhaps the country’s top comedian.

“After poking snide fun at officialdom,” the totalist administration with its imperious leader in the 9,596,961 sq km community where he lives decided to shut him down.

"He says things nobody else would dare to say,” said one Guo supporter. "[They were] looking for an excuse to teach him a lesson, to say, 'You should be [saying] flattering [things] instead of criticizing.'"

"It's not an ideological campaign," another critic of the administration said, in explanation of the crackdown. "It's about social order. It's about obedience. It's to remind people, 'I'm your boss.'"

The article tells us, “For years, [the comedian/critic] got more and more popular, and with the fame came … a certain measure of cachet among the country’s powerful.”
