60 years ago on Oct 1, 1949, the People’s Republic of China was born. After many years of civil war between the Chinese Nationalist Party (Kuomintang) and the Communist Party of China, and complicated by Japanese occupation, Mao Tse-Tung raised his fists in triumph at the gates to the Forbidden City. “The central government of the People’s Republic of China is established!” he declared before a crowd of up to 1 million people in Tienanmen Square. “The 475 million people of China have now stood up!” he added in response to a Napoleonic quote: When China wakes the world will be sorry.
Today, glossing over decades of violence, terror, human rights violations, manipulation, deprivation, deception, propagandizing, continual monitoring, and repetitive use of force, the People’s Republic of China are staging an elaborate spree for a world-wide audience as they mark 60 years of Communist Utopia. (Highly militaristic in style, can the comrades people really be that giddy?)
In a bizarre show of support, the Empire State Building will be bathed in red and yellow lights today (colors of the Chinese Imperial Court). Obama is celebrating, too. Just a few days ago, he made sure the flag of the People’s Republic of China was flown next to the Stars and Stripes on official ground near the White House.
On November 6, 1957, at the Meeting of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR in celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the Great October Socialist Revolution, Mao boasted, “The socialist system will eventually replace the capitalist system; this is an objective law independent of man’s will. However much the reactionaries try to hold back the wheel of history, eventually revolution will take place and will inevitably triumph.”
Raising the Chinese flag next to the American flag in the capitol of the United States may play well in China, but it doesn’t play well with freedom-loving Americans. Mao Tse-Tung is wrong. Socialism isn’t inevitable. We must continue to send Obama the message that courting the Chinese to fund his Marxist goals will not be tolerated. Capitalistic innovation and prosperity, along with the freedoms afforded us by our Constitution have enabled our nation to bulwark against destructive dictators and tyrannical ideologies. Let’s do whatever it takes to wrench ourselves out of the financial noose we’ve invited China to twist around our throats. While extending goodwill to the PEOPLE of China, we who cherish liberty could never celebrate this wretched authoritarian regime.
