What the!!?? IMO this flag should not be flown anywhere near the white house or any govt. office. Actually, shouldn't be flown anywhere in this country. Communism is an enemy of the US. What are they thinking??? Oh I forgot, we already have avowed communists working within our govt. What's the big deal right?Posted: September 04, 2009

The administration of President Barack Obama, whose official blogger while Obama was a candidate came under attack for hanging a Communist Party flag in his Harvard apartment, apparently has given permission to raise the emblem of Communist China over the south lawn of the White House.
The plan, reported by several English-language Chinese media outlets, has raised concern among those who are working to guard the United States from outside influences that could be threats.
According to the Global Times English-language edition, the national flag of the communist People's Republic of China on Sept. 20 will be raised for the first time on the White House's south lawn – a secured area seldom available for public events – in recognition of the Chinese anniversary.
"The ceremony has gotten official approval," Xiao Shuigen, secretary of the Union of Chinese American Professional Organizations, told the Times.
