The San Leandro California Town Board voted to fly the Chinese Communist flag over the Town Hall to mark the founding of the People’s Republic of China. The proposal was approved four to three.
After some dissension from the community, the mayor suspended the city’s plan until the residents can weigh in.
Councilman Benny Lee said it was meant to support Chinese residents and show them the city was open to Chinese investments.
Mao Zedong, a radical communist and mass murderer, was the founding father of the People’s Republic of China. He killed 40 to 70 million people through starvation, forced labor and executions, ranking his tenure as the highest in genocidal murder in human history.
During his tenure, such things as finding a tattered photo of him would likely result in a person being detained and executed.
Zedong was a womanizer, liar and drug baron. He was known for growing opium poppies and making millions from it. The British Imperialists were the ones who introduced the poppies to China. Zedong’s patriotism was allegedly based on hatred of British Imperialism.
He orchestrated a phony agricultural movement that ended in famine. He pretended that it was successful and suggested his people eat leaves while they starved and he sold their produce abroad.
What a guy! Who wouldn’t want to hang his flag over their town and commemorate his life as a mass murdering, opium-dealing, womanizing thug Communist? What’s the delay?
