CRAWDADDY: Ocean Springs lawmaker merits a stern warning from China

A simple congratulations by a Mississippi lawmaker has gone viral.

Ocean Springs Rep. Hank Zuber’s routine resolution on Republic of China President Tsai Ing-wen of the Democratic Progressive Party got more attention than he expected. And it wasn’t because Zuber, a Republican, congratulated someone with the Democratic Progressive label.

It was the bigger China, also known as Communist China and Red China, that caused Zuber’s name to explode on the Internet…

…”It’s all over the world,” said Zuber of the story. “Friday it was on the front page of the Taipei Times.”
