Re Chinese comic being silenced by Chinese government.,0,2359397.story

Key passage (with highlighting by me): "He says things nobody else would dare to say, especially in the entertainment industry," said Pu Zhiqiang, a lawyer who has criticized Guo's treatment on Twitter. "The government was looking for an excuse to teach him a lesson, to say, 'You should be flattering the government instead of criticizing.'"

Sounds to me like certain portions of the SoCal poetry community.
