“Donate my ass” – Blocked in China

I love the “Sensitive Words” section of China Digital Times.  This is a section that points out the words and terms currently being blocked by the Great Firewall of China.

This week “Donate my ass” is blocked because that term came out many times in response to a call for charitable help from the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Civil Affairs for flood recovery.

Of course, a lot of discussion about the flooding of Beijing — referred to as the “Katrina of China” — is being blocked.

And there is the Anti-Social List from the China Media Project in Hong Kong: Post comparing Beijing floods to SARS deleted

    i think “donating my ass” should be used when asked to donate to disasters in China. Considering bulk of the funds donated ended up lining the pockets of CCP members.
