Our National Disgrace Continues: Obama Invites Chinese Pianist To Insult Americans In White House

January 25, 2011

George W. Bush once went to Beijing and inadvertently went to the wrong door after a press conference.  It was proof positive for the left that George Bush was the dumbest human ever born.  It was all they needed to claim that he was a man without an exit strategy; that he was a man with the maturity of a five year-old.

Barack Obama went to the wrong door of his own damn White House and the left continued to assure us that he’s the smartest man who ever lived.

Well, the left that didn’t give a damn about reality then won’t give a damn about reality now.  But the fact of the matter is that our national disgrace continues as Obama continues to disgrace America.

Imagine the picture of Barack Obama sitting there grinning like the most idiotic village idiot out of all the villages of the world while a Chinese pianist that his own White House invited plays a song that calls Americans jackals that the heroic Chinese will gun down with hunting rifles.

My God.  Give me Bush going to the wrong door after every single engagement throughout his entire presidency.  But please spare me from having to endure one more second of this insufferable moron Barry Hussein…

Chinese pianist performs anti-American anthem at White House dinner in front of Obama

A Chinese pianist struck a sour note at a White House state dinner with a rendition of a well-known anti-American anthem.

With the Chinese and U.S. presidents among the dozens of dignitaries watching, Lang Lang belted out ‘My Motherland’, the theme tune to the Chinese-made Korean War film ‘Battle on Shangangling Mountain’.

The song has been a propaganda tool in China for decades and includes a disparaging reference to Americans as ‘jackals’ who will be shot with hunting rifles.

It is likely that Chinese President Hu Jintao and his delegation would have picked up on the reference, even if Barack Obama and the rest of the Americans did not at the time.

Speaking afterwards Lang Lang made no apology for his choice.

MY MOTHERLAND: THE LYRICS

Large billowing waves on this big river, Wind blowing the fragrant paddies of both banks, There is my house on the bank,

Where I can hear the usual boatman’s song As the boat with white sail passes by.
This is my beautiful Motherland, The land of my birth.
On this vast expanse of land, Everywhere is beautiful scenery.

A damsel is like a flower, That refreshes youthful mind, Scaling heaven and earth, Waking the slumbering mountain, As the river changes the scenery.

This heroine Motherland Is where I was brought up, In this ancient land of youthful strength.

Good mountain, water and place, That radiate tranquillity and happiness.  There are good wines for friends who come, And if there be wolves and jackals, We greet them with hunting rifle.

This is my big and powerful Motherland The land of my birth.
On this vast land peace radiates!

‘Playing this song praising China to heads of state from around the world seems to tell them that our China is formidable, that our Chinese people are united; I feel deeply honored and proud,’ he said.

Lang Lang’s performance came at the state dinner for President Hu during his recent official visit to the US.

It referred to a 1952 battle during the Korean War in which Chinese forces fought off repeated American and Korean attacks on Triangle Hill in Kimhwa, North Korea.

Four years later the events were turned into a Chinese-made film called ‘Battle on Shangangling Mountain’ which portrays a group of Chinese troops keeping the enemy at bay until reinforcements arrive.

The main song is ‘My Motherland’ which is sung by a young woman to injured troops includes a number of controversial lyrics including: ‘When friends are here, there is fine wine / But if the jackal comes / What greets it is the hunting rifle.’ The ‘jackal’ in the song is the United States.

The unabashed show of patriotism brought a strong reaction from some Chinese.

‘Those American folks very much enjoyed it and were totally infatuated with the melody!!! The US is truly stupid!!’ wrote one China-based blogger.

Yang Jingduan, a Chinese psychiatrist now living in Philadelphia, added: ‘’My Motherland’ having been played at the White House will be seen as a propaganda triumph in China.

‘In the eyes of all Chinese, this will not be seen as anything other than a big insult to the U.S.

‘It’s like insulting you in your face and you don’t know it, it’s humiliating.’

But another Chinese blogger said: ‘Suppose for a moment that Obama was invited to a banquet in China, and he invited an American artist who had performed in China for many years to play an American war song against China, what kind of reaction do you think the Chinese government and people would have?’

It is not clear if Lang Lang’s choice was indeed his own selection, although it is unlikely the Chinese ruling CCP party would have been unaware.

In interviews he claimed he was motivated by nothing more than national pride.

‘I thought to play ‘My Motherland’ because I think playing the tune at the White House banquet can help us, as Chinese people, feel extremely proud of ourselves and express our feelings through the song. I think it’s especially good,’ he said.

‘Also, I like the tune in and of itself, every time I hear it I feel extremely moved.’ The White House declined to comment on the choice of the song.

“The US is truly stupid,” wrote one Chinese blogger.  A bare majority of us actually voted for this dumbass.  And the remark about “Those American folks very much enjoyed it and were totally infatuated with the melody” undoubtedly refers to the president and his first lady juking and jiving to this stone-cold national bitchslapping of the face of the late great USA.

It’s not “the US” that is truly stupid.  It’s Democrats who are truly stupid.  They want to tell us how dumb Sarah Palin is when they’ve got the biggest moron in the history of morondom stumbling around the White House.

Obama is the quivering pile of slime who has has disgraced America by bowing down to America’s betters wherever he found them.  He went on a disgrace America tour after his election and just never stopped.

I don’t doubt for a second that he and Michelle danced a stupendous waltz to this national insult to the American people.
