The city council of San Leandro, corrupted by the lure of Chinese money (or should I say U.S. money being repatriated for influence), has decided to fly the flag of Communist China above its City Hall on Chinese “national day”, October 1.
This date celebrates the conquest of China by Mao’s brutal communist forces in 1949 and the establishment of a regime that has killed more people than any other on Earth. A regime that continues to this day to execute more of its own citizens than the entire globe combined. Many of them for religious and political dissent. Apparently “partnering” with these sort of criminals is what San Leandro wants to be known for.
A mocking of the American flag of equal sized starts, this flag symbolizes the inferior position of the Chinese people (small stars) in relation to the Party (BIG star) and the over all dominance of Communism (Red) in all aspects of society.
San Leandro offers this insult to many people including:
Korean Vets who watched their many Americans and allied soldiers go down in the face of China’s insane “human wave” attacks.
Tibetans who are watching their country be systematically dismantled and their people abused under Beijing’s colonial ambitions.
Vietnamese Americans who had their own country stolen from them by communist forces backed by China.
Falun Gong who have been persecuted, rounded up, forced to labor in prison camps and executed so their organs and bodies could be sold for profit to the West.
Christians who have had their bibles restricted, their churches demolished. This is a country where the Catholic Church is prevented from selecting its own Bishops by the Communist Party.
Millions of Unemployed Americans who have lost their job to China’s cyber espionage, currency manipulation, and trade abuses.
San Leandro has voted to spit on all of these people.
I strongly urge you to contact the leaders of San Leandro and let them know what you think. City Hall Phone: (510) 577-3357
If you can go there on October 1st and show your disgust for this gesture and demonstrate your support for America and our values that would be great.
Bring your own food and fill up your gas tank before you enter town.NEVER DO ANY BUSINESS IN OR WITH A SAN LEANDRO FIRM. Boycott China, Boycott San Leandro.
note: Mayor Stephen Cassidy courageously opposed this action. You can thank him at: (510) 577-3355
