Anti-American Song Played at State Dinner by Chinese Pianist

26 Jan

It was bad enough that the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize Winner (Obama) was throwing a big state dinner honoring China’s dictator, Hu Jintao, who is currently imprisoning the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize Winner (Liu Xiabo). Now we find out that they allowed a Chinese pianist to play an anti-American song at the dinner as well.  The melody was the theme song from the movie “Battle on Shangganling Mountain,” an anti-American propaganda film from the Korean War. (Emphasis added)

“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.”
