I’ve seen this story before, as you have I’m sure. Man runs for the presidency, promising change and a return to American preeminence. Man’s charisma and charm captivate the masses, especially in light of the outgoing administration’s dour, meat-headed obliviousness. Man wins election with a substantial plurality of the vote, running on a mandate of change. Man immediately begins his subversive activity, secretly initiating the “Red Fog Protocols,” an uber-clandestine plot to infiltrate American institutions. Wall street, the auto industry, health care, and all public schools are all inundated with communist dogma, for the sole purpose of indoctrinating American citizens with the sweet pure truth of the ruling egalitarian. Think I’m kidding? Check out this report from WorldNetDaily:
The flag of the communist Chinese regime has been raised over festivities near the White House honoring the restrictive nation’s 60th anniversary, according to videos posted on You Tube as well as reports from the Chinese Central television network’s English-language report…
“Words such as UNBELIEVABLE, UNREAL, HORRIFIC, OBSCENE, even TRAITOROUS quickly come to mind,” he wrote in a column. “Remember, the communist leaders of Mao’s China are not called the ‘Butchers of Beijing’ for nothing. Since seizing power in 1949, it is estimated that the communist government in China has murdered more than 50 million people (some reports say the number is over 70 million).”
“Hundreds of Chinese came together to celebrate the 60th anniversary of their home country,” the report said.
Organizers of the event stated it was the first time the Chinese national flag was raised in a public place in Washington. (Really??? Not so fast my friends. )
“This is an outrage,” wrote on Fox forum page participant.
“Don’t believe a flag belonging to a Communist nation should ever be flown in this country, at the White House or anywhere else,” said a second. And a third added. “Which communists should we believe, OURS or theirs???”
This is madness!!! What kind of leader would allow the flying of a communist regime’s flag, in our nation’s capitol?
The conservative Web site WorldNetDaily reported on the original story, and the reports were then repeated on several blogs and talk radio shows. But the China Daily story is inaccurate.
As Fox News reported on Sept. 4, there is indeed a ceremony scheduled to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, but the White House says that the ceremony will take place on the Ellipse. The Ellipse, together with the North and South White House Lawns and Lafayette Park, constitute what is sometimes called President’s Park. Although the entire park is administered by the National Park Service, both Lafayette Park and the Ellipse are public parks that are distinct from White House grounds. Indeed, the National Park Service describes the Ellipse as the area “formed by an oval roadway directly south of the enclosed White House grounds.”
And as to the idea in that WorldNetDaily piece that the flag had never flown in a public place in Washington D.C., and the subsequent “outrage” that this episode has caused, check out this picture below.
Is that who I think it is? With the Chinese flag behind him? You know what? I think it is a conspiracy. Thanks for breaking it WorldNet Daily. Too bad you couldn’t point that high powered lens of truth telling a little bit earlier. Then, you could have uncovered this gem. What a bunch of jackasses.
