    Hey, China, Leave This Blog Alone

    Hey, China, Leave This Blog Alone

    Reader Tom reports that when he was in China recently he was not able to access this blog, or the affiliated Facebook and YouTube pages..

    Other blogs worked fine, including other conservative blogs.

    Calling out to the People of China to try to access this blog and report the results in the comments if you can get through, or if not, send me an e-mail.

    (P.S., I can’t wait for the phone call.)

    Update:  A reader in China e-mails that the Great Firewall blocks all “” addresses; as others note in the comments, there are ways around that.

    I'd have to agree with Ben. Insurrection is a scary word to the communist party in China. Good thing I didn't name my blog Tienanmen-something.

    Then again, how big is the potential market for conservative American blogs in China? Are you really missing out on that many readers? Or is it about teaching them about the virtues of capitalism? That may not be necessary any more.

    Professor – I am living in China currently and can only access your blog when I use a VPN (virtual private network – that's how most folks here get around the Great China Firewall). The Firewall blocks all websites from "" including yours and Ann Althouse's blog. I don't know why the Party decided that blogs from were particularly dangerous to the Party's monopoly on power (which is the key criterion).

    If China's agin, I'm for it!

    A measure of a man (or blog) is the caliber of his (it's) enemies.
