Controversial Peking University professor Kong Qingdong, known for calling Hong Kongers “dogs”, again caused a stir on the internet after comparing gun-related deaths in America to the number of deaths during the Cultural Revolution, angering many Chinese netizens in the process.

From Sina Weibo:

@孔庆东: According to the Supreme People’s Procuratorate files in the Judgement of History, over 34,000 people were persecuted to death during the Cultural Revolution. Let us assume this data is reliable, then that means every year 3000 people died. Compare this to America where, because of the proliferation of guns, every year there are over 30,000 people who die, equal to 10 Cultural Revolutions. If you calculate this based on the population ratio between the two countries, then it is equivalent to 40 Cultural Revolutions.

Comments on Sina Weibo:


A cross-eyed, crooked mouth’d, black-hearted, shameless, ugly dog!


What kind of logic is this? Then World War I, World War II equals to how many Cultural Revolutions? Drug abuse, car accidents, suicides equals to how many Cultural Revolutions? Jerking off equals to how many Cultural Revolutions? Professor Kong is such a joke. doge_org


I don’t really understand Professor Kong’s logic: how can you compare deaths caused by political persecution to shooting deaths involving privately-owned guns? Shooting deaths should be compared to murders and regular crimes in China?


The proliferation of guns in America resulting in over 10,000 deaths every year is a indisputable fact, and if you add it up within the same length of time, the number that died from guns in America is how many levels above the number that of those “persecuted to death” during the Cultural Revolution!


Hurry up and go to hell.


Kong proves that the Cultural Revolution is better than America.


The destructiveness of the Cultural Revolution is not something that can be determined by the number of deaths. The Cultural Revolution lifted public violence to new heights, and it also caused legal and moral bankruptcy, and the destruction of culture…and this kind of remaining poison continues to deeply affect Chinese people to this very day!


Ok, let’s have another Cultural Revolution. Let people see how students beat their teachers to death. Isn’t Kong Qingdong a teacher? Then let the students charge into the classroom, publicly criticize Kong Qingdong, then beat him to death, and let’s see if Kong Qingdong will still sing praises.


Shooting deaths in America is the price of freedom, China is inhuman persecution from a feudalistic dictatorship. Kong the Monk [a nickname] with your big gut, why are you pretending to be a stupid cunt?


How did a retard like this become a professor?


Sigh, Peking University have thoroughly fallen into becoming a mental hospital.


Today there is no more Cultural Revolution, yet guns remain widespread in America. My question is, why are there so many Chinese who want to immigrate to America??


I suppose you were a Red Guard during he Cultural Revolution! So you are trying to absolve yourself of your crimes!


After reading the comments, I no longer have to worry about my country.


America is so scary! It’s practically hell! But our government officials are frantically sending their families to hell, including Sima Nan and Fang Zhouzi, etc. This “if I don’t go to hell who will” [self-sacrificing] Communist spirit, I am so touched!


With this SB, Peking University have turned into a septic tank.


Your dad should’ve sacrificed 10 seconds of pleasure and ejaculated you onto the wall instead.
