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.
The upper sections of the building are regularly illuminated to mark special occasions, ranging from all blue to mark “Old Blue Eyes” Frank Sinatra’s death in 1998 to green for the annual Saint Patrick’s Day.
Red is a good color as the blood of the Chinese has been running since the communists took over China.
From forced abortions to outright public assassinations China has been the unrivaled megamurder leader in the history of the world. And we’re honoring the government of China? Communism has been the most violent failed social experiment in the world. And we’re commemorating its endurance in China? Communist regimes have taken the lives of over 100 million people. And we’re celebrating its anniversary with a light display?
What does something like this say to the world? As long as you’re willing to buy up our debt and keep markets even a little open we’ll overlook pretty much anything.
This is disgusting.
The Empire State building is a symbol of America to much of the world. Its image is one of the most famous and enduring in our country. King Kong climbed it. Cary Grant waited for the love of his life on the observation deck. And Meg Ryan whined and scrunched her nose in that cute way she has that she does in every movie.
But now for the Empire State building to be used in the honoring of the most brutal anti-human government to threaten man is a sick and blatant display of our callous culture.
