Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

Hanoi Jane Fonda is no match for CBS and The Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan. She paraded around North Vietnam in an enemy tank. He led contestants on his around-the-world adventure to the wreckage of an American B-52, shot down during the Vietnam war. Their "task?" Learn to sing the praises of communist guerilla leader Ho Chi Minh.
The popular CBS reality show "The Amazing Race" is under fire for featuring an episode set in Hanoi, Vietnam, where contestants go to a B-52 Memorial, which is the wreckage of an American bomber plane shot down during the Vietnam War, to find the next clue in their televised round-the-world journey.
In the episode, the twisted metal of the downed plane is treated as any other prop, with a bright "Amazing Race" "Double-U-Turn" sign planted in front of it, signifying to contestants the next phase of their scavenger hunt.
The show also had contestants learn a song that was performed for them by children in front of a portrait of North Vietnam communist leader Ho Chi Minh, with subtitled lyrics that included "Vietnam Communist Party is glorious. The light is guiding us to victory."
Good grief. Did they spend their down-time at the Hanoi Hilton too? What's their next stop? The Katyn Forest?
Sadly this is more of a commentary on our educational system than it is on the quest for ratings at CBS. I suspect no one on staff over there ever stopped to think about what that wrecked bomber represents. Or what it might mean to praise a communist leader under whose banner 60,000 Americans were killed.
Because multi-culturalism says the communists in Vietnam are no different than the Minutemen at Bunker Hill. And because the Marxists in our public schools aren't in the business of praising America or honoring the sacrifices made by our armed forces. Their warped version of history paints the United States as the aggressor, oppressing the peaceful peasants of Vietnam.
When it comes to communism far too many of our elites play See No Evil. These
are the people running our government, teaching our children, and yes making
reality television shows for our "enjoyment." Their ideology is pure and their
propaganda is very slick. And so a bunch of ignoramuses can sing of communist
glory while dancing on the grave of brave Americans and not give it a second
thought. Winning that million bucks is way more important than having
to discern right from wrong.
