For the US, the analog to Tibet would be the overthrow of the monarchy
and annexation of Hawaii, or the slaughtering of Native Americans and
forcing them to live on undesirable land.

When trying to make this more prominent in the [[Hawaii]] article, 
folks, including myself, were met immediately with abusive responses
from fellow users - "ignorant," "intellectually dishonest,"
"childish," "blow your own horn."


Nationalistic groupthink is exhibited in many articles, not just China
related ones.
