A video that has surfaced from China is what leftists wish they could do in the United States.
A video that was taken in Southern China shows four alleged violators of Covid-19 rules being publicly shamed in the middle of a street.
The four men were forced to wear hazmat suits and had to hold a giant picture of themselves which also included their names.
The authorities in China that were behind the public shaming incident went on record saying that they shamed the men in order to prevent more Covid-19 violations from happening.
The Chinese government publicly humiliates those that violated COVID restrictions.

The Guardian had more on the story:
Armed police in Jingxi, in southern China, have paraded four alleged violators of Covid rules through the streets, state media reported, a practice that was banned but which has resurfaced in the struggle to enforce a zero-Covid policy.
The four men were accused of smuggling people across China’s closed borders, and on Tuesday they were led through the streets wearing hazmat suits and bearing placards showing their name and photos. The state-run Guangxi daily reported the action was designed to deter “border-related crimes”.
A common practice during the Cultural Revolution, public shaming has long since been banned in China, and the Communist party-affiliated Beijing News said the Jingxi incident “seriously violates the spirit of the rule of law and cannot be allowed to happen again”.
Public shaming in China today, Mao’s Cultural Revolution style. History is repeating itself. Don’t let that happens in America. @XVanFleet @gothixTV @Timcast @Lukewearechange @joerogan @DrKarlynB @foxandfriends @DanielDiMartino @MorganZegers @SebGorka @VoCommunism pic.twitter.com/6u3xvuRcn7

CNN got the scoop too:
Police in southern China paraded four suspects through the streets for allegedly smuggling people across sealed borders in breach of pandemic control measures — a controversial act of public shaming that triggered backlash on Chinese social media.
On Tuesday, four people wearing hazmat suits, face masks and goggles were paraded in Jingxi city, Guangxi province — each carrying placards showing their names and photos on their chest and back, according to videos shared on social media and republished by state media outlets.
Each suspect was held by two officers — also wearing hazmat suits and face shields.
They were surrounded by yet another circle of police, some holding machine guns and in riot gear, while a large crowd looked on.
The four people were suspected of helping others to illegally cross China’s borders, which have been largely sealed during the pandemic as part of the country’s “zero-Covid policy,” according to the state-run Guangxi Daily.
