Another disgusting move under the Obama administration. First bowing to foreign leaders and the mayor of Tampa, the Russian "reset button" flub to name a few. I can't believe that they allowed this pianist to play this Anti-American song at a state dinner. I think that the Director of Protocol in the White House needs to be fired over this. And don't think the Chinese President wasn't smiling over this.
Via Fox Nation: Chinese-born pianist Lang Lang in many ways embodies the Sino-American comity that both President Hu Jintao and President Barack Obama emphasized during their summit this past week-which is no doubt why he was chosen to perform at the White House state dinner for Mr. Hu on Wednesday.
After bilingual comments to the assembled VIPs in which he said it was a "great honor" to be playing, he proceeded to perform a solo piece, which he introduced as a "Chinese song called ‘My Motherland.'"
The song is not just any old song. As Chinese netizens have pointed out, "My Motherland" is the theme song for a famous anti-U.S. movie about the Korean War from 1956, titled "Battle on Shangganling Mountain."
Via The Wall Street Dinner:
The performance has set the Chinese web abuzz—and more than a few people are convinced it wasn’t an accident.
Both the Sina and Sohu news portals reposted an article that they attributed to the Beijing Evening News, with the headline: “Lang Lang Played ‘My Motherland’ at White House, Flaunting National Power.”
“Those American folks very much enjoyed it and were totally infatuated with the melody!!! The U.S. is truly stupid!!” wrote a user named You’re In My Memory on Sina’s micro-blogging site.
