Chinese Government Stooges Release Most Badly Faked Photo In History

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Officials in a Chinese province faced online ridicule for releasing a poorly doctored image of administrators meeting with a 103-year-old woman.

The photo, captioned `love and consideration for the elderly is a cherished Chinese tradition. They should feel the warmth of the party and the government,` depicts four Chinese Communist Party officials in Anhui province and the 103-year-old woman, but one of the men is cut off in the middle and all three men are towering over the elderly woman, Cheng Yanchun, who was clearly edited in from a different photo."

A six-year-old Chinese girl could have done a better job digitally manipulating the photograph -- shame on the clueless bureaucrats.

The photo may have been captioned "love and consideration for the elderly is a cherished Chinese tradition. They should feel the warmth of the party and the government." (Not exactly a pithy caption.) But these government stooges couldn`t take the time to actually visit the old woman who probably lives  in a dilapidated rest home where she`s fed dog meat sprinkled with lead three times a day.

China: A wonderful socialist paradise where you can always believe the government!
