Does anyone know what the barbaric practice of post holes referred to?

I've heard the one of shoes in walls, but not children in post holes.

I suspect it's referring to a Japanese practice (see wikipedia). He does overdo the children aspect (the practice used "maidens", which may have been children, but you can't be sure), which is an automatically enotive aspect that clouds reason and frankly, it feels cheap.
