My Newswithviews Column, Feb. 17 (‘Goose-Stepping into Paradise)

Beijing's opening ceremony touts a different China from 2008 Olympics

When you see the soldiers marching with silly walks, know that dictatorship is just around the corner. The silly walks always give it away.

Goose-Stepping into Paradise

I’ve read that this year’s Winter Olympics out in Commieland have the lowest TV ratings ever. Well, they deserve it. Pretending Communist China is a civilized country is a shameful thing that old a Western “progressive” can do with any degree of sincerity. For the China-boosting corporations, it’s only a colossal cynicism.

God help us if we don’t deserve better.

  1. Great column, Lee! Glad to see you’re back in the saddle again. (But does your horse have to do silly walks?) 🙂

  2. How can you have a Winter Olympics in a place that doesn’t even get snow? Using artificial snow and ice is stupid, not alone having the ski slope competition next to abandoned nuclear cooling towers. And how about that Genogames Barbie who defected to China to ski for them? She has received $40 million in commercial contracts already – it’s insane.
