Chinese Pianist Plays Propaganda Tune at 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 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.”

You might want to google "China's God Bless America" to see what this song is really about.

Epoch Times is Well known for it's anti-China slant.

To say the song is anti-American is like saying Star Spangled Banner is anti-British. We play it to the Queen, does it mean we are rubbing her nose in? The Revolutionary War and Korean War are both historical facts, so what does it have to do with respective state visits today?

Lang Lang picked a song for the visiting guest, don't read too much into it. It was also sang during the Olympics, in front of President Bush.

“Epoch Times is Well known for it's anti-China slant.”

So says the Chinese propagandist.

Quoting the Wall Street Journal (emphasis mine):
“ ‘My Motherland’ is the theme song for a famous anti-U.S. movie

I wonder…
Will our Chinese propagandist dismiss The Wall Street Journal as “anti-China”? Perhaps our Chinese propagandist is unaccustomed to dealing with a free press (and a free blogosphere).

The propaganda song was also played at the Olympics? I see no proof of that. But, if you are referring to the disturbingly militaristic opening ceremony in Beijing, that seems likely. Noting that China is well known for this sort of display does not help your case.

Reminds me of a post seen here recently.

Chinese Red Army tells us to Beat It.

As an American, I find this a little disrespectful. I appreciate sites like SBVOR for demonstrating the same sentiment.

But on the other hand, this makes Obama look even more clueless.
