NYT's Friedman's 'Enlightened Elite' Kills Baby Girls in China

The pride of the New York Times stable of tame pundits, Thomas Friedman, has high praise for one-party autocracies. Like China's:

"One-party autocracy certainly has its drawbacks. But when it is led by a reasonably enlightened group of people, as China is today, it can also have great advantages. That one party can just impose the politically difficult but critically important policies needed to move a society forward in the 21st century."

Mark Steyn and Jonathan Goldberg immediately pointed out that Friedman would adore Benito Mussolini, who famously made the trains run on time in Italy, a feat that has never been accomplished under any elected government. But Mussolini's punctuality came at a high price, when Fascist Italy invaded Libya, Ethiopia and Greece, and sent whole divisions to the Eastern Front to die in the Russian winter along with the Nazis. One-party government built the Autobahns and Volkswagens in Hitler's German Reich, and managed to kill an additional 100 million people in various copycat Communist and Fascist regimes in the 20th century. That high casualty rate continues today in North Korea and Burma.

What about China? Thomas Friedman's one-party enlightened autocracy persecutes the Falun Gong, peaceful religious people. It has specialized vans to execute people and carry them off, reputedly to "harvest" their organs. But in sheer numbers nothing comes close to female infanticide and female abortions. According to FoxNews,      

"Twenty-five million men in China currently can't find brides because there is a shortage of women," said Steven Mosher, president of the Population Research Institute in Washington, D.C. "The young men emigrate overseas to find brides." "Shortage of women" is a euphemism for the "mass murder of twenty-five million girl babies."

It's not just China. There are "60 million girls missing in Asia." But with Friedman's  One-Party "enlightened elite," China reportedly reduced female infanticide during the Mao era -- when 40 million adults were killed instead. So it can be done with enough autocracy. But since 1979 China has enforced a one-child per family policy, and when Chinese families are forced to choose, girl babies are killed more than little boys.

Scratch a One-Party Elite, and you're likely to find a vast archipelago of human butchery somewhere behind the scenes. It might almost be predictable.

Ya think?

What fine people these NYT pundits are.
