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,< http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kroEprEpvtA > 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."< http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-aTpkd6-P8 >

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I don’t feel humiliated. I think it is incredibly rude. This man is in our country as a guest.
china, we got yer jackal right here
kind of showed how clueless obummer was
Obozo is dangerous idiot. 2012 can’t get here soon enough.
Obama probably loved the song.
I suppose Zero had to find out about it the hard way - via Fox news?
The movie depicts Chinese troops enduring freezing weather with no food or water and American soldiers using flame throwers and laughing at burning Chinese soldiers. In retaliation, theres a lot of killing of American troops later in the film.
Those American folks very much enjoyed it and were totally infatuated with the melody!!! The U.S. is truly stupid!! wrote a user named Youre In My Memory on Sinas micro-blogging site. This particular post was re-posted many times.
We’ll be passive to muted in response.
And the Chinese will laugh greatly at our stupidity and helplessness.
And then they’ll look down on us even more because we were so wimpy and compliant so stupidly.
>> And then theyll look down on us even more because we were so wimpy and compliant so stupidly.
I think China is taking the shots while it can - a jab they can look back upon and chuckle.
I’m curious what the response was to the performance.
Second, 0's cluelessness and international groveling gave China the confidence to set up this insult. In a country where the government has such total control as China, a pianist, even a very famous one, would not dare try to pull this off without a nod from the palace.
Third, 0's been trying to break bad as a hard-nose when it comes to China's human rights. China just slapped back. It's kinda like when someone who's priviledged starts to think that he's a real bad boy under the hoop when really he's just been getting a pass because of who he is. Eventually, someone gets tired of being pressed and throws an elbow into his mouth.
Third, there are a lot more Chinese who are proud of the pianist, and of their country, for having poked the U.S., than there are U.S. citizens who are proud of their country and will grow a spine and start making the sacrifices necessary, and demanding action on the part of their representatives, to get the U.S. into an economic and diplomatic position where a country like China wouldn't dare pi$$ on our back.
And that's where the true pity is.
It’s by far not the first time the Chicoms have played an inside joke on a gullible U.S. administration.
When Nixon went to China and the principal souvenirs of that visit were the pandas Ling-Ling and Hsing-Hsing, a rumor had it that the animals’ names were Chinese bathroom slang.
“Mommy, I have to go to the hsing-hsing to do ling-ling!”
Lang Lang lives in New Jersey, and he is truly a sheltered child in a man’s body. Both in Chinese and English language social settings, but especially in English language settings...
He had for years preferred royal blue Lemay bespoke zoot suits on stage. He nows dresses like a professional female office administrator... it’s very weird.
He also is making a good cool 100k+ per performance in the States, ...
he still has family in China, he might have performed a propagandist piece under duress...
To 0bama, the tune was the second sweetest sound on Earth.
The Chinese truly believe they are superior to Americans and were convinced no one in America would notice this. And Americans — as reflected by the MSM — wouldn’t. Did anyone else note the Yale Law School professor who published “Why Chinese Mothers are Superior” in the WSJ just before the visit? They TRULY believe this, just like the Muslims TRULY believe that Americans are as depraved as depicted on TV, and that we are infidels.
The Chinese mainlanders whom I have met are, to a person, the most unabashedly racist human beings I have ever met on the face of this Earth. Especially Han. The things that come out of their mouth, even in politically correct society, would make even an unrepentant klanner or a south boston irishman blush.
I’m not just getting nostalgic for the Bush years, heck, I’m nostalgic for the Clinton years too.
Maybe even the Carter era.
Bush was an idiot who caused us to “lose our standing” throughout the world!
AND, AND...even though Obama was inexperienced, he assured us he had better “judgement” and would make everyone love us again!
Wonder why China is exploiting weakness?
They own our debt and GE is going to give jet engine technology to China.
Guess Hu and his commie buds have nothing to fear.
Makes me sick.
Did this happen in China or America?
He’s playing here in San Antonio soon. A lot of people I asked if they were planing on attending said...... I’m not going to pay good money to see a Panda.
OThuga probably gave a cheesy grin and applauded like a clown.
Astute points, imho.
Hadn’t heard that one. LOL.
I can check that one out.
The recital took place at the White House.
The bigoted Han-uber-alles speech I hear takes place here in the U.S. (NYC mainly) .
US humiliated in eyes of Chinese by song used to inspire anti-Americanism
Very aggravating these maggots talk like this over here. Americans are far too nice and understanding of other cultures
I’m starting to feel the way you do.
Zero makes Carter look good.
BTW.... You confirmed what I have heard from others. thanks. Sometimes it seems that 90% of immigrants and work visa holders have anti-USA sentiments. They just come here to have fun, make money, and abuse the natives. We are being colonized
China has numerous ethnic Chinese agents here that feed back vital information on a casual basis. Could be as simple as a Chinese-American fellow working in a private company that supplies missile software to our military. The Chinese guy will leak back to the Chinese military what he has learned and any gossip
Overseas Chinese are more loyal to China or the nation they reside in and were born in? Too many will choose China first
You are exactly right on there. No where else would you find a theme park, which does exist in South China and is VERY popular, celebrating the Monkey King who kidnapped a Chinese princess who thereupon gave birth to the Japanese race.
As for the rest of us, well, we aren’t even 1/2 Chinese. Not for nothing do they refer to China as the middle kingdom, halfway between heaven and earth.
While working in China in the 90’s I well remember sitting through “Battle on Shangganling Mountain” several times with my Chinese “Friends” gleefully belting out the song.
He probably requested it.
"Remember, you are the 1st Marines! Not all the Communists in Hell can overrun you!"~Lt. Gen. Chesty Puller
Guess he didn’t get any of that $200-$300/bottle wine...
The result of teaching 'multiculturalism' and moral relativism in public school for years.
"The Capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them." ~Lenin
This guy deserves at least a boycott for his little stunt. And frankly it wouldn't hurt my feelings if he got pied.
Lenin’s quote is correct. That is why the ChiComs crack down on their capitalists who work against greater Chinese interests. While we salute our capitalist who offshore jobs and increase their stock valuation this way
Americans were so stupid we gave enormous tax breaks to Toyota and Nissan to set up shop here. I was appalled at the time. States and counties competed in giveaways to bring a Nissan or Toyota factory to their turf
Yes, yes, but what about all those great deals on Walmart Communist Chinese products?
Stupid is an understatement...People in places like Tennessee swooned, begged and kissed the butts of foreigners so they'd build one of their plants in their backyard...
America was once the manufacturing mega-powerhouse of the world...Now we beg and bribe foreigners for jobs
We were winning the baseball game 13-3 and we decided to send in our worst pitchers ... Who were actually (bought and paid for) whores disguised as Trade Representatives
At least when we let Japan screw us they were a Cold War ally and that's how we kept Japan, Korea, Taiwan loyal to us. By allowing them to dump product into our markets
But China is no kind of ally but we have saps and sellouts who try to position them this way. Of course all the above nations were going to play catch up but we did everything to help them.
Full Disclosure: notice that the countries we kicked the sh*t out of in WW II often give us less trouble nowadays than our erstwhile "allies"...
If Dems understood the concept of losing face, this would be a national slap in the face... As is, Obama probably thought it was a cute tune...
If sufficient furore arises over this, he may end up the fall guy, though. Communism is like that, it will flip on a dime and bite the hand that has been feeding it.
But at least it will be the best quality rope to be had anywhere in the world :-/
