Copies of the Guardian newspaper are displayed at a news agent in London August 21 2013.

After blocking the New York Times and Bloomberg websites last year, it appears the Chinese government has now taken umbrage with Britain’s left-leaning daily the Guardian.

Representatives from the publication said that their website was initially blocked by the “Great Firewall” on Tuesday, according to Reuters.

“The reasons for the Guardian block are unclear — no China-related stories published by the Guardian in the past two days would obviously be perceived as dangerous by the country’s leadership,” the U.K. newspaper reported.

Twenty years ago a citizen of Mainland China was afraid to go into his own house, enter the bathroom, turn off the light and have one bad thought concerning the brutal Chinese Communist Party. Now people are cursing the blood-thirsty CCP openly on the street. The CCP has murdered  over fifty million of its own people since 1949 and since 1999 has been attempting the brutal genocide of the tens of millions of innocent Falun Gong practitioners who live there. This genocide consists of torture, slavery, organ harvesting and murder. The heinous CCP is spending 25% of its GDP committing this genocide and keeping it hidden from its people and the rest of the World.  Western media and governments are ignoring the truth because of corporate greed. This is the real Chinese Communist Party.

@jefforsythe9 If you want to pour dirty water on the CCP as you are doing here, do it and don't stop! If CCP collapsed by your foolish words and curse, please wish the sun would rise from the west horizon. May I remind you that a good mind makes the world a better place to live in; a blank and prejudiced  mind can destroy the life even now you ARE living. Is everything in the U.S. perfect? Does thge U. have cheating cases?  Does the U.S. have ills? Your focusing on only the problems of China and the good aspects of the U.S. only shows your ill-intention.
