Yet another WTF moment

September 29, 2009

The Chinese Communist government is responsible for the deaths of roughly 50-60 million of its own people, thanks to its brutal rule and economic incompetence. (For example, the so-called Great Leap Forward of 1958-61 was officially estimated to have killed 14 million.) This is also a regime that wickedly cracked down on pro-democracy demonstrators in the Tiananmen massacre of 1989. (An event approved of by President Obama’s first nominee to head the National Intelligence Council.)

So, naturally, New York is set to honor the 60th anniversary of this monstrous dictatorship by bathing the Empire State Building in red and yellow light, the national colors of China:

New York’s iconic Empire State Building will light up red and yellow Wednesday in honor of the 60th anniversary of communist China.

The Chinese consul, Peng Keyu, and other officials will take part in the lighting ceremony which will bathe the skyscraper in the colors of the People’s Republic until Thursday, Empire State Building representatives said in a statement.

I realize they do this for all sorts of occasions, but, guys, this is just indecent. They may hold massive amounts of our debt, but let’s not hold a party on the graves of their victims, shall we?

Praying to Dear Leader

September 29, 2009

It was bad enough seeing school children sing praises to President Obama as if he were some leftover Stalinist dictator, but when you have groups praying to him in a weird mockery of the Catholic liturgy, you’ve entered the realm of the grotesque:

Is the democratic spirit that weak on the Left, that they need god-kings?

Maybe they should learn this song, next:

UPDATE: Ed at the Hot Air link above is a little unsure if they’re saying “Obama” or “Oh God.” Of course, that could be one and the same to them. Winking

We interrupt this blog…

For a blatant political commercial from my candidate for US Senate, California Assemblyman Chuck DeVore (R-70):

Chuck’s a smart, sharp leader who holds to the right (and Right) principles on energy, taxes, fiscal policy, the economy, and integrity. We’ve suffered long enough with Barbara “Check Bouncer” Boxer in office; it’s time she herself was bounced.
