China Just Jailed A Man For This And If Biden Wins Many Fear It Will Happen In US Too

China sentenced a tycoon former property executive who once called Xi Jinping "a clown" to 18 years in prison for taking a bribe, a court said on Tuesday, in what some critics called an extreme punishment and harsh sentence during a prolonged clampdown on controversy.

Ren Zhiqiang, the former moderator of Huayuan, a state-owned real estate group, was convicted for illegal gains totalling 112 million yuan (£12.9m), according to a notice on the website of Beijing No. 2 Intermediate Court.

Known as "Cannon Ren" for his outspoken views posted on social media, Mr Zhiqiang was arrested in March after calling Mr Jinping "a clown stripped naked who insisted on continuing being emperor" after a speech the Chinese president made in February about government attempts to fight the coronavirus.
