Chinese Pianist Plays Propaganda Tune at White HouseSubmitted by celeste on Mon, 01/24/2011 - 14:53
US humiliated in eyes of Chinese by song used to inspire anti-Americanism reads the headlines.
Lang Lang the pianist says he chose it. Chairman Hu Jintao recognized it as soon as he heard it. Patriotic Chinese Internet users weredelighted 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.”
I hope everyone had a real good time. The party is just about over for Obama and company.
