Skip to comments.White House to Fly Red Chinese Flag ( OUTRAGEOUS! )
Posted on 09/04/2009 8:32:44 PM PDT by kellynla
The administration of President Barack Obama, whose official blogger while Obama was a candidate came under attack for hanging a Communist Party flag in his Harvard apartment, apparently has given permission to raise the emblem of Communist China over the south lawn of the White House.
The plan, reported by several English-language Chinese media outlets, has raised concern among those who are working to guard the United States from outside influences that could be threats.
According to the Global Times English-language edition, the national flag of the communist People's Republic of China on Sept. 20 will be raised for the first time on the White House's south lawn a secured area seldom available for public events in recognition of the Chinese anniversary.
"The ceremony has gotten official approval," Xiao Shuigen, secretary of the Union of Chinese American Professional Organizations, told the Times.
"It was always my dream to raise a Chinese flag in the center of Washington, D.C.," Chen Ronghua, chief of the U.S.-Fujian Association, told the newspaper. "This year, my motherland's 60th birthday, is the perfect time for it."

"It was always my dream to raise a Chinese flag in the center of Washington, D.C.,"...didn't Mao say the same thing...
Wouldn’t it be nice if someone put a round thru it?
Just another Obamanation!
And what is it he is doing do the September 11 day (of remembering the attack that killed thousands in this country??) I don’t remember what THAT Obamanation is but it’s another one.
Stand up Republicans in Congress, and sound off against this communist’s welcoming of China’s flag into OUR WHITE HOUSE grounds!
Even Billary’s Chinese Commie agents didn’t achieve this!
My family left China 45 years ago to escape Communism. I am absolutely disgusted.
Please, please, please let there be a photo of this that can be proven is not photoshopped.
Then add the tagline: “Obama’s America...under new ownership.”
Hell, Baracko sold the U.S. to the Red Chinese so why not? The Red Chinese now own this joint.
It's like The Beverly Hillbillies set in the White House, with radical anti-Americans instead of mountain folk.
Just the latest in an ever growing number of acts of TREASON this cat has commited. A plague on em all!
You can raise any flag at any time.
A flag does not constitute the concept of a free nation.
We are free people individually.
Doesn’t take a damn pole,,,
Another Obama impeachable moment.
Good news. I hope it’s accurate.
“I bet you didn’t see this on the Evening Network News tonight!
“It was always my dream to raise a Chinese flag in the center of Washington, D.C.,”...didn’t Mao say the same thing...”
On the Canadian press website, all the front page articles are about our fight for freedom! Where is the media!
Obama’s Sept swan song for America
Is MA Storm Trooper bill a test case for Obama takeover?
In this article are some details of the MA bill regarding swine flu.
This picture isn't photoshopped, although it is taken from an angle that obscures the fact that an equal sized American flag was on the other side of the podium.
The good news is yet to come.
We are slowly reclaiming our country.
And I don’t think you or my neighbors
are gonna participate in a lay down/ slack butt/
head stupid/approach for our kids.
Where you want this country to go???
Ya wanna be stupid??? Fine, go to goof off land.
But if ya want to be an American,
eventually you have got to step up to the plate.
It is not optional at that point.
Put up or shut up folks....
I’ve made my decision.
And appropriately on the left of the podium.

Flags flying at the White House, but whose?
“While the flags of many nations are flown at the White House when dignitaries of those countries visit, this seems to be the first time a foreign nations flag will be hoisted to celebrate that countrys founding, communist or not.”
“There is no flag rule or regulation that prohibits the flying of flags from foreign nations at the White House; although the Capitol grounds are another matter. The updated 2008 federal flag code is a bit confusing, but it says no flag can fly higher on American soil than the U.S. flag, except for the UN flag at UN headquarters. So there is no direct violation of the U.S. flag code here. “

Ands the MSM will ignore it like they did Van Jones.
Right next to you my friend
Wonder why it wasn’t debunked when it was first out there in July??
AND the dark dude salutin it!!
Barry will probably hang a flag with Osama's face on it.
The way I originally heard this was that PRC flag was going to be flown over the Capitol, which would make it higher, but that apparantly is not the case.
People should be clogging up the White House e-mail and phone lines about this outrage.
“I hate this as much as anyone, but isnt it the rule that the other countrys flag can not be flown higher that the USA flag?
The way I originally heard this was that PRC flag was going to be flown over the Capitol, which would make it higher, but that apparantly is not the case.”
In the article below it says that flags of other countries are flown, but only when those dignitaries are visiting. No dignitary will be here at that time.
Not sure about the flying higher issue.

Should the communist-led USSA fly the flag of capitalist Red China? Modern life is just too confusing for me.
Apparently the Soviet flag flew at least twice at the White House (for Brezhnev and Gorbachev), but it seems that White House staffs used to be sharp enough to make it harder to take pictures like that, even by the foreign press. No doubt that is the kind of photo opportunity the Chinese are looking for, particularly as we become so financially beholden to them.
China owns us, and has planted the flag.
We gave them all our money for plastic crap sold at walmart.
I don't care where the ceremony will take place, why the heck is the United States of America recognizing the birthplace of communism in China???? Is this one of the conditions China made Madame Clinton agree to before taking our mortgage?? What other conditions did she agree to????
I dont think you get it.
I don’t think he does either...
but I don’t have the time or the inclination to explain it to him either...
I got my chin shot off fighting those Commie bastards...
I’m not gonna spend another minute giving a class on it...
All those who support Free Trade with Communist China.....you have now got your wish...
Unfortunately, there will be a lot posting here, who support the Communist Chinese flag being raised.
I’m thinking that they didnt get caught at it until now, and there was enough outrage that it is now a CYA. The slimy bunch of alley rats pull all this stuff under the table. That is why there are 35 or so Czars who are not approved by Congress and who make policy and do all this crap without the knowledge or debates from the Congressional Floor. The Joker is running his own little show. Then when he gets caught at it, he spins another lie to CYA.
I hope it gets so bad with the czars that congress gets a clue and cuts funds from whatever welfare program they are being paid from.
The white house is saying they aren’t..China says they are.
[snips]White House Debunks Reports It Will Fly China’s Flag on South Lawn
A ceremony, indeed, will take place. But it won’t happen on the White House grounds — rather, on the Ellipse, on the other side of E Street from the presidential residence
Demonstrations by foreign groups on the Ellipse or in Lafayette Park, in front of the White House, are not uncommon. But foreign flags are only flown on the White House grounds or on Pennsylvania Avenue to mark “state” or “official” visits of the countries’ leaders.
Under those guidelines, the Chinese flag has flown on White House grounds before, in April of 2006, when President Hu Jintao visited then President George W. Bush.
In fact the current controversy is reminiscent of that visit. The Chinese insisted it was a state visit, despite U.S. assurances it was only an official one. The “state visit” label would have implied a bigger honor to Hu and to China, but Bush only had a handful of state visits and Hu’s wasn’t one of them.
Still, Chinese media continued to report it was a state visit even after it was over. And they continue now to report that the Fujian Association rally will take place on the White House lawn, even though U.S. officials insist it will not.
yep, I posted that article/thread this am .
