As a Nixon library official told the Register, displaying statues of world leaders--in this case, long dead ones--does not mean the federally run facility endorses their policies.
Ping Pong diplomacy? Or indoctrination?
Ah, but there may be more to this out-in-the-open, clandestine-Red China-Commie plot unfolding in the heart of Nixonland. Chen's protest also coincides with the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China. And that coincides with another, dare we say controversial exhibit the private foundation that built the Nixon library is involved in: "Ping Pong Diplomacy: The Rematch."
You read that right, Joe McCarthy: the Nixon Foundation is one of the sponsors of an Oct. 17-18 table tennis tournament aimed at harkening back to the original 1971 and 1972 table tennis events between the United States and Chinese national table tennis teams that became known as "Ping Pong Diplomacy."
Featuring American and Chinese champs, Olympians, collegiate athletes and ripe-for-brainwashing youths, the tourney runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day at Orange County's version of Red Square: South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa.
Mr. President, tear down these balls!
And get this: this red-loving Love-In is tied to "Ancient Paths, Modern Voices: A Festival Celebrating Chinese Culture."
For the love of God, is there no end to this blatant Commie indoctrination?
Apparently not, for The Manchurian Candidatesque plot thickens: another exhibit bowing to Mao, this one displaying archival photographs from the original "Ping Pong Diplomacy" competition as well as photographs documenting Nixon's trip into the heart of darkness (China), will also be featured.
Mr. Chen, we pray you know what to do.
