Beijing Olympics … Chinese Admit Fake Opening Ceremony Little Girl Singing Scandal (Lin Miaoke & Yang Peiyi) … Maybe they can Admit Female Gymnasts were not 16
China deceiving the world with imagery over substance. Why should anyone be surprised? As beautiful as the Opening Ceremony was of the Beijing Olympics, they were just a microcosm of the present one image to the world while something quite different goes on behind the scenes.
Lin Miaoke & Yang Peiy, a tale of two little Chinese girls and how their government deal with perception over reality.
By all accounts the opening ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics were considered a great success of amazing and beautiful lights, sound and imagery. However, we have learned since that some of it was not real. We learned that parts of the spectacular fire work display during the Opening Ceremony was fake.
The dupe was revealed by China’s Beijing Times. Speaking to the paper, the man responsible for the animation said he was pleased with the result.
“Seeing how it worked out, it was still a bit too bright compared to the actual fireworks,” Gao Xiaolong told the newspaper.
“But most of the audience thought it was filmed live – so that was mission accomplished.”
If anyone ever wanted to know what China wanted out of these Olympics all they have to do is see the “perfect” imagery scam to follow.
Lin Miaoke – the pretty face
Yang Peiyi – the voice who was considered unsuited to the lead role because of her buck teeth
Then we learn that the 9 year old little Chinese girl, Lin Miaoke, who wowed all with her singing was a fake as well. Chinese officials have admitted the fake scam of deceiving the public by using one girls looks and another girls voice. Turns out that the Chinese had their own “Milli Vanilli” moment as the 9 year old was lip synching the lyrics. As it turns out, the voice used during the opening ceremony was that of another 7 year old who Chinese officials deemed not pretty enough to represent their countries image to the word for the Olympics. Literally, she was banned for crooked teeth.
We live on the Age of Fake.
However, if one thinks that the above Chinese “little girl” girl story was a fake, one also then needs to take a good look at the Chinese female gold medal gymnast teas as well. Olympic rules state they must be 16, are the Chinese under age? Chinese officials have denied charges that their female gymnasts were under age. Well, what would one expect them to do, admit it? However, as we have seen from the accounts above … officials have had no problem during these Olympic games of scamming the public.
Chinese gymnasts … 16?
Anyone can use their own judgement and common sense and put 1+1 together and realize it does not equal 16. Rules be damned to the Chinese. Anyone who watched the competition of the womans, in deference to the Chinese we should say “little girls,” team gymnastic competition knows very well that many of the Chinese were in no way 16 years of age. After all, how many 16 year old do you know are missing baby teeth?
What did you expect? Any country that would lip-synch out a 7-year-old singer because she wasn’t cute enough for the opening ceremony wouldn’t hesitate to use underage children to capture gold medals. That’s a no-brainer. There is what you see and there is what really goes on in China, and what you see at these Games, the image they project, is as precious as oxygen to the New Emperor of the Planet. Who cares if a gymnast is so young she is, as one critic charged, “missing a tooth”?
The Chinese Gymnasts: Age Questions Remain
What’s a little doctoring of some papers and passports for a totalitarian government when gold medals and world perception are at risk?
According to their passports, which determine Olympic eligibility, He Kexin, Jiang Yuyuan and Yang Yilin are all 16. But Chinese online records and local newspaper articles have presented different information, raising questions about these three gynmasts’ true ages. A 2006 biography from the local sports bureau where He was registered gave her date of birth as January 1, 1994, which would make her 14. A story earlier this year in the China Daily, the country’s largest English-language newspaper, also reported that she is 14 years old. Another local-level competition roll had the date of birth of Jiang, who is only 32 kg (70.5 lbs.), as October 1, 1993, making her also 14.
My Chinese girls have come a long way baby … From One Child policy to exploited and put on a pedestal.
But they won. That’s what matters here. If you’re looking for outrage, remember that not long ago, with its One Child policy, little girls were in danger of being killed over here or, at the least, shipped out for adoption. Now, in service to the state, they are on a pedestal.
