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 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. [...]
Speaking afterwards Lang Lang made no apology for his choice. [...]
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. [...]
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.
Its like insulting you in your face and you dont know it, its humiliating.

Maybe the host didn’t get it or was he silently applauding the theme of the song.
Rush played audio tape of that piano performance today.
Thankfully Rush did not play it in it’s entirety.
It was like nails on a chalk board.
The performer’s excuse that he loved “the melody” is total bull. It had no melody.
Obama allowes an anti American song that thinks Americans should be shot to be played at the White House. I hope the next Republican presidant has the little commie back over one day. Send him back to China to get his chinese flag removed from his rear end
Really. Old. News.
America gets a huge slap from two global leaders...death to America Obama teams up with Ju Hintau to party it up and enjoy their best Anti America rhetoric while America suffers.
Matter of fact, while America pays for it.
At the White House, there are no surprises. Everything is meticulously planned. All part of Obama’s Americas payback.
