Unbelievable: the land of the free celebrates communism


When rumors about the Empire State Building lighting up in yellow and red to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the communist takeover of mainland China came out last week, VUI dismissed it as one of those internet myths.

Unfortunately, the stories were not just internet legends. It happened. The premier symbol of New York was lit up in red and gold to celebrate the tyranny that is Communist China. While it is bad enough that seemingly every good bought in America is made in China, celebrating a regime that crushes human rights is unconscionable.

Yet it happened. As did the flying of the Communist China flag on the White House grounds to mark the anniversary.

It is troubling. Make no mistake, the communists in China are not nice, freedom loving entrepreneurs. They rule with an iron fist. Labor is often cheap, if not forced, and performed in unsafe working conditions. Religious tolerance is not practiced at all. A person can be jailed for having more than one bible in their possession. Further, monks who practice Buddhism have been tortured and killed. The free exchange of ideas does not exist in China, as the press and internet are tightly controlled. There are no true elections, and a small group of elites run the nation with the full force of a state police behind them.

That is not something to celebrate. Perhaps reality forces the United States to deal with the Chinese. Fair enough. But, celebrating their reign of oppression and cruelty goes against every value Americans on both the right and the left espouse. Shame on President Obama and shame on the people who run the Empire State Building for celebrating such a despotic regime's rise to power.

  2. At least not to your face, Obama Man. Asians typically don't think much of Blacks. Remember the whole Korean versus Black thing in L.A.? They would just shoot your ass at church one Sunday and be done with you.

    Brian McCarty is no cracker. Do not insult us crackers by calling him one. He is a traitor to the white race.

  7. It's not about color. If you can't see the red writing on the wall, how Obama would love for you to be just like an underpaid, overworked, "don't have any free thoughts, we'll tell you what to think" Chinese person, then I truly feel sorry for you. It's not about Obama's color... Any man or woman of ANY color or religious background would be anathema for celebrating a noxious political system like China. Shame on you Obama and shame on people of color who CAN'T SEE BEYOND THEIR OWN COLOR BLINDNESS!!!!!
