Update: The first Lies about President ObamaWritten by Julen Madariaga on January 21st, 2009
I don’t usually do direct accusations on this site, because I know better than searching conflict, and I understand nobody is perfect and we all make mistakes.
But this one I cannot let pass, it is too low and too gratuitous. It is sad: why does it have to be China who tells the first Lies about President Obama, only 20 minutes into his presidency. This is how they respect one admirable man, and 1 Billion of their own listeners. (h/t shanghaiist).
To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history, but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.
Yes, he said that. And yes, they are on the wrong side.
