Completely Tasteless Chinese View of ISIS Vs. Al-Qaeda

I found this piece of computer generated mayhem on a website that’s perhaps best not mentioned. It’s a Chinese language news report of the rivalry and fighting between ISIS and al-Qaeda in the Middle East, and the international attempts to bomb them both. The core of the report seems to be the news that a suicide bomber from the al-Nusra front infiltrated ISIS, blowing himself and them to kingdom come. I think they’ve got that part of the story wrong. I don’t think al-Nusra are al-Qaeda. From what I’ve heard, they’re anti-Assad Syrian Nationalists, who beat up anybody from outside Syria trying to enter the country to fight. The whole bloody conflict over ISIS is presented as knock-about slapstick farce, with the two sides laughing as the press each other’s suicide belts, blowing themselves up. Putin is described as ‘rootin’ tootin’, and riding a horse shirtless, while Dave Cameron is shown with a pig attached to his crotch.

As he does.

It’s computer animated, and the sheer tastelessness suggests it comes from the Taiwanese news show that presents the news as computer animations. It looks like it’s the same crew, who produced the computer graphic illustrated report of a rage-filled Gordon Brown going on the rampage, punching everything in sight and beating people up.

One upon a time, if it featured high technology, and was weird and tasteless, at least to Western sensibilities, it was usually ascribed to the Japanese. There’s that saying: 95 per cent of everything weird comes from Japan. Now that consumer capitalism has hit China, they also seem to be losing their canons of taste and restraint. I blame the global influence of Rupert Murdoch for lowering standards right across the globe.

As for the animation, it’s tasteless, but I’m including it here as it makes ISIS look stupid, which is a righteous cause in itself, as well as sending up our own Prime Minister.
