Sure, the controversy over a song played by pianist Lang Lang at the White House state dinner for Chinese president Hu Jintao is entirely manufactured. But manufactured outrage is good enough for WorldNetDaily's Chrissy Satterfield, whose head explodes in her Jan. 26 WND column:
I wonder, what would it take to make Obama angry? What would Lang Lang have to do for Obama to put a stop to his performance? If Lang Lang had stripped down to his underwear and started screaming "Death to America," would he have budged? Some might say it would have been rude to interrupt Lang's performance. But hey, if I invite someone to my house (regardless if I owe them money) and they start singing about killing my family, I'm going medieval on them. Debt shmet, you disrespect my family? You better play dead.
Unacceptable is the only word that comes to mind when I think about Obama. He just sat there and let us get the biggest pie in the face. When Lang started playing his Anti-American propaganda, Obama should have left. I don't expect him to get violent, or start shouting for Lang to stop. He could have stood up and walked out. That would have sent a clear message that respect is a two-way street. There is no excuse for Obama's lack of action. He has proven that he is nothing more than a marionette working for the liberal puppet masters. He can't do anything without being directed. He can't speak up without a prompter.
Obama probably didn't even realize what was happening. I wouldn't be surprised to find out he enjoyed Lang's musical rendition of "I hate America." There he was with that blank grin thinking how great he is, thinking how wonderful it is that he reached out to China. He threw Hu a "please like me" party and made us look like complete fools. Falling all over Hu, telling him how much we want to be friends, Obama was like a new kid in the schoolyard who just wanted to be accepted. All the while China is giving us a national swirly in the political toilet.
Obama deserves a wedgie the size of his ego for what he's done to us. He has helped our enemy embarrass us in front of the entire world. Who in their right mind would respect us now? Obama allowed us to be humiliated. He allowed Lang and Hu to spit in our face. He's made us appear weak and inferior. He has failed to lead by example. If he cannot stand up to Hu, what's the point of it all? My dose of honesty: We need a president who is strong, opinionated yet open minded; someone who will lead with his heart and protect our good name at any cost. Obama is none of those things, and this fiasco shows his true character … weak. As for Lang, he should never be allowed to set foot on American soil ever again.
Whatever would Satterfield do if she ever stumbled across an genuine controversy? Why, it just might kill her.
