Dunn [Heart] Mao

Here’s a follow-up on Gio’s previous post, “Obama Must Fire Anita Dunn.”

Dunn is the White House Communications Director. She’s been blasting Fox News. Fox should take it as a compliment because Dunn clearly is a piece of dung, having extolled mass murderer Mao Zedong, Communist China’s ruler and Never Setting Red Sun for 27 years.

Scholars on China agree that Mao was a disaster for the Chinese people. Alas, Anita Dunn must have missed the memo on that. Dr. Maria Hsia Chang, in her 2001 book Return of the Dragon: China’s Wounded Nationalism, wrote:

“If nationalism means a people’s sentiments of love and fellowship for each other, then Mao’s ‘continuous revolution’ of unceasing class struggle was the very antithesis of nationalism. In human lives alone, his 27-year reign exacted a toll of 45 to 72 million Chinese lives…. Together with the millions who languished in ‘labor reform’ camps, were tortured and abused by Red Guards, or ‘sent down’ to the countryside to learn from the peasnats, the population of China probably suffered more death, privation, and politically engineered devastation than at any other time in its history.”

And as Mark Steyn trenchantly observed in his October 17 National Review column, “A Tale of Two Soundbites“:

“Hey, that’s pretty impressive when they can’t get your big final-score death toll nailed down to closer than 30 million. Still, as President Obama’s communications director might say, he lived his dream, and so can you, although if your dream involves killing, oh, 50–80 million Chinamen, you may have your work cut out…. Whoops, can you say ‘Chinamen’ or is that racist? Oh, and sexist. So hard keeping up with the Sensitivity Police in this pansified political culture, isn’t it? But you can kill 40–70 million Chinamen and that’s fine and dandy: You’ll be cited as an inspiration by the White House to an audience of high-school students. You can be anything you want to be! Look at Mao: He wanted to be a mass murderer, and he lived his dream! You can too!

The White House now says that Anita Dunn was ‘joking.’ Anyone tempted to buy that spin should look at the tape: If this is her Friars Club routine, she needs to work on her delivery.”

You be the judge. Here’s Ms. Dung in her own words. Notice her tongue-flicking. (H/t very observant GiovanniWorld member DCG!) Creepy!

I’d be more careful picking my heroes, Ms. Dunn. The more the WH criticizes Fox News, the more viewers they get. Don’t you just love it when their plan backfires? 🙂

Jeesh, what’s with the flicking of the tongue…she looks like a lizard!

Joking my arse…this woman is a disgrace to relate Mao’s murdering his own people to doing what is best for you and fighting your own wars. Communists – all of them!

Debbie,

Most perceptive of you!
I’ve NEVER seen anyone who does what Dung does with her tongue. Creepy. I’m reminded of Al Pacino’s tongue-flicking in the movie “The Devil’s Advocate.”

They just can’t help revealing who they really are! LOL

“Joking” ??? What level of irony is masked in that serious tone and then claimed as humor? Where was the riotous laughter? Personally, I have heard some lame jokes with Mother Teresa as the object but never, even in my sick circle, has anyone ever even attempted to reach to Mao for so much as a smile. To think she has the “ear” of the president is well past scary.

Thanks to Obama, I can now recognize the face of evil.

Eowyn,

Here they go again! This is a headline from less than 5 hours ago….

Obama Team Continues Effort to Isolate Fox News
Senior Obama administration officials took to the airwaves Sunday to accuse Fox News of pushing a particular point of view and not being a real news network.

“A lot of their news programming, it’s really not news. It’s pushing a point of view,” senior adviser David Axelrod said on ABC’s “This Week.”

“The way we — the president looks at it and we look at it, is, it is not a news organization so much as it has a perspective,” White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel added on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

The open assault on Fox News began last weekend when White House Communications Director Anita Dunn accused the network of being a “wing of the Republican Party.”

“What I think is fair to say about Fox — and certainly it’s the way we view it — is that it really is more a wing of the Republican Party,” Dunn said on CNN. “They take their talking points, put them on the air; take their opposition research, put them on the air. And that’s fine. But let’s not pretend they’re a news network the way CNN is.”

Despite calls to the White House this week, the administration did not offer a guest for this weekend’s “Fox News Sunday” to talk about Dunn’s comments, although administration officials appeared on all four Sunday morning shows to speak on various issues.

President Obama has had interviews with all of the other Sunday talk shows except “Fox News Sunday,” including a whirlwind weekend in late September where he appeared on all other Sunday talk shows.

Michael Clemente, Fox News’ senior vice president of news, said the administration’s strategy appears to be misdirected.

“Surprisingly, the White House continues to declare war on a news organization instead of focusing on the critical issues that Americans are concerned about like jobs, health care and two wars. The door remains open and we welcome a discussion about the facts behind the issues,” Clemente said in a written statement.

Former Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove said Fox News’ commentators have been tough on Obama but the White House appears to be confusing the news and opinion that appears on the network.

“They’re conflating the news side and the opinion side in order to — in order to attack a media outlet. Again, it’s undignified for the president of the United States to be doing” Rove said on “Fox News Sunday.” He added that it is the administration’s practice to attack its critics full-throttle.

“I think this White House is dominated by Chicago- style politics, so if you don’t like the questions that are being asked by Major Garrett or Wendell Goler or Chris Wallace, then you try and demonize Fox News,” he said.

Though Fox News has won the cable news ratings race consistently for years and is closing in on network news numbers, Axelrod and Emanuel both encouraged other news outlets to not treat Fox News as a news organization.

“The bigger thing is that other news organizations, like yours, ought not to treat them that way, and we’re not going to treat them that way.” Axelrod told ABC.

Axelrod was quick to point out that though the White House views Fox News as biased, the administration would continue to interact with Fox News. “We’re going to appear on their shows. We’re going to participate, but understanding that they represent a point of view.”

“President Obama’s going to talk to all the networks,” said former Clinton adviser and administration confidant Terry McAuliffe, who appeared with Rove on Fox News. “He’s going to go out there. He loves competition. He loves being engaged in the battle.”
