|Badly-Behaved Chinese Tourists Annoy Disneyland Hong Kong|
Mouse Zedong? Disney opens its gates in Hong Kong. The Communist heirs of Mao Zedong and the capitalist successors of Walt Disney shared the stage on September 13 with a near óG1bn monument to globalisation: the first Disneyland on China's newly engulfed territory - Hong Kong. The meeting of the world's biggest Communist party and the planet's best-known entertainment corporation would have been unthinkable to their founders. Walt Disney was a fervent anti-communist; Mao launched deadly purges of rightists and blocked Hollywood films.
While China Daily, the mouthpiece of the Chinese Communist Party, critically described its Disneyland-visiting fellow countrymen's misconduct as 'shabby', the authoritarian Beijing regime is certainly complacent when finding itself being stabilized by the Disneyland Hong Kong subtly.
