Lying: It’s What Communists Do

So the little Chinese chick was lip-syncing[1]:

A 7-year-old Chinese girl was not good-looking enough for the Olympics opening ceremony, so another little girl with a pixie smile lip-synched “Ode to the Motherland,” a ceremony official said _ the latest example of the lengths Beijing took for a perfect start to the Summer Games.

A member of China’s Politburo asked for the last-minute change to match one girl’s face with another’s voice, the ceremony’s chief music director, Chen Qigang, said in an interview with Beijing Radio.

The audience will understand that it’s in the national interest,” Chen said in a video of the interview posted online Sunday night.

And then there are the prepubescent (and by prepubescent, I mean 10 year old) child-athletes[2]:

Last night we watched a group of 7-year-old Chinese girls beat the crap out of the American gymnasts. And please. Don’t try to tell me those Chinese chicks are 16 and older. Bela Karolyi is not crazy – actually I think he might be for other reasons – but he’s right about this. Even the New York Times and Time magazine and Sports Illustrated are getting on it, and there’s pretty convincing proof that there are some serious shenanigans going on with that shit.

Oh, and then there’s the whole we-don’t-the-whole-country-just-the-separatists-part bit by our good friend Vladamir Putin. Oh, and it’s Dick Cheney’s fault[3]!:

Russians were told over breakfast yesterday what really happened in Georgia: the conflict in South Ossetia was part of a plot by Dick Cheney, the Vice-President, to stop Barack Obama being elected president of the United States.

The line came on the main news of Vesti FM, a state radio station that — like the Government and much of Russia’s media — has reverted to the old habits of Soviet years, in which a sinister American hand was held to lie behind every conflict, especially those embarrassing to Moscow. Modern Russia may be plugged into the internet and the global marketplace but in the battle for world opinion the Kremlin is replaying the old black-and-white movie.

The Obama angle is getting wide play. It was aired on Wednesday by Sergei Markov, a senior political scientist who is close to Vladimir Putin, the Prime Minister and power behind President Medvedev.

I never could understand Bush when he said that “he looked into PUtin’s soul”. Good grief. I looked in and saw a hungry wolf, waiting to eat his prey. And he’s started his meal.

Communists, lie, that’s what they do. They distort things and defend distortions for the “greater good”. They make decisions for expedience and their own comfort. To promote the state, they don’t mind harming the individual. They do not value the individual, except inasmuch as the individual can make the state look good.

And still, liberals defend this. The preach “peace”[4] when peace means appeasement.

It’s tiring. I agree in part with Michael Reagan’s[5] assessment:

In any struggle between the dreamers and the realists the realists always win.

We’re seeing that played out right now as the supreme realist of our time, Vladimir Putin, not only is running circles around the dreamers of the West, but is also making them look like a bunch of incompetent ninnies.

We in the West, buy the Commies lies because the truth is too difficult to contemplate: more war. The fact is that these powers understand one thing–dominance. And America’s continued slide into socialistic softness has opened the door for tyrants worldwide.

Ultimately, the constitution of the average American enables a guy like Putin and the Republic of China. We don’t have the stomach for a fight.
