Obama State Dinner Features Anti-American Chinese Propaganda Anthem

Nothing like anti-American propaganda being played at the White House:

Lang Lang the pianist says he chose it. Chairman Hu Jintao recognized it as soon as he heard it. Patriotic Chinese Internet users were delighted as soon as they saw the videos online. Early morning TV viewers in China knew it would be played an hour or two beforehand.

At the White House State dinner on Jan. 19, about six minutes into his set, Lang Lang began tapping out a famous anti-American propaganda melody from the Korean War: the theme song to the movie “Battle on Shangganling Mountain.” The film depicts a group of “People’s Volunteer Army” soldiers who are first hemmed in at Shanganling (or Triangle Hill) and then, when reinforcements arrive, take up their rifles and counterattack the U.S. military “jackals.”

The movie and the tune are widely known among Chinese, and the song has been a leading piece of anti-American propaganda by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for decades. CCP propaganda has always referred to the Korean War as the “movement to resist America and help [North] Korea.” The message of the propaganda is that the United States is an enemy—in fighting in the Korean War the United States’ real goal was said to be to invade and conquer China. The victory at Triangle Hill was promoted as a victory over imperialists. …

His choice was known in advance to CCP officials is very likely.

This is the song, apparently, though obviously in Chinese.

    You’re whining about some piece of music being played at the White House when billions and billions of dollars of chinese goods are flooding our markets every day which you cheer for. What a bunch of hooey!

      Meanwhile….starting w/ Clinton’ista’s the USA has “flooded” the Chi-com’s with Loral Missel technology and other technology that would’ve kept them 2nd world militarily….

      I imagine the Chi-coms are happy as a lark with that trade………They will probably be the biggest contributor to Obama’s re-election in 2012……they gave Clinton 400,000 back in the day in return for the Loral guided missle tech.

      by the way……..did Ch-com Pres. Hu have to go out the back door thru the garbage cans Like the Tibetan ruler did last year????

    “…when billions and billions of dollars of chinese goods are flooding our markets every day…”

    Thanks for illustrating that you don’t understand either business or economics. The reason snowbama has us in this economic trough is that he has relentlessly attacked American business. He has saddled our economy with his Marxist-inspired taxes and regulations, he has shut us out of the oil market as a supplier, and now you don’t like the results. He has to support profits for American businesses, not penalize them, and then maybe we can compete with the Chinese in supplying goods to our own citizens at good prices. He has to take his boot off the neck of American enterprise.
    The Chinese aren’t “flooding” us with anything; they are delivering good products at attractive prices.

      What conservatives wish American business could do. This is the foot the gov’t has on American businesses.

        As usual, your ignorance knows no bounds. The so-called “trade deficit” is mostly an issue for the greedy union thugs. What it means is that we are richer than China, so more of us can buy their stuff, while the vast majority of Chinese can’t afford to pay attention, much less buy our union-inflated goods.
        Since 2007, the Dems have been putting US business at a disadvantage with the rest of the world with taxation and regulation, and a lot of our debt to China and elsewhere is due to the insane energy policies originating during Carter, when he decided that “going green” meant hobbling our domestic energy production, instead of making money.
        This mostly Dem stupidity has given an opportunity to the Chinese to eat our lunch, although they have to enslave most of their people and manipulate their currency to do what they have done so far. Even so, they are dependent upon us to buy their stuff, which you leftie dullards never seem to realize when you go crisismongering.

        The Chinese economy is one big bubble.

    Lang Lang has appeared on Oprah and is International Goodwill Ambassador to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

    The playing of Motherland was the signal for 300 million Chinese bachelors to begin their long march to the United States. Here they will buy American women with Treasury bonds.

    There is new evidence this may not have been the case. I forget now where I read about this–possibly lucianne.com? The jury is still out so one should exercise caution on this one..

    Maybe Obama likes that song from his days in the Indonesia Madrassa. I think I saw him whistling along with the tune.

    I found the source urging caution regarding this news item–it is instapundit rather than lucianne.com.

    I heard that the next time that Putin comes to town they’ll be playing Gosudarstvenniy Gimn SSSR during the cocktail hour by Obama’s request.

    Amazing how many nations think it’s safe to poke the USA in the eye these days. Knowing that Obama is a weak-kneed liberal patsy makes them unafraid to do things that they wouldn’t even have tried when the second biggest loser POTUS Carter was in office.
