Instead of condemning the regime that wrought havoc on his family and imposed suffering and death on millions of innocents, Chan is China's most prominent mainstream apologist. Meanwhile, moviegoers in the "most corrupt country in the world" continue to help make Chan a wealthy man. This summer, his latest movie, "Chinese Zodiac," will hit U.S. theaters. Sylvester Stallone has invited him to co-star in the next installment of "The Expendables." And Chan is working on another Hollywood project involving his popular "Police Story" series.
Will American consumers allow themselves to be punched in the gut by this trash-talking action star? If the embrace of Chan's new pal PSY is any indication, the answer is yes. The Korean "Gangnam Style" performer once urged listeners to "kill those (expletive deleted) Yankees ... kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers."
Called out on the hate lyrics, he issued a hasty apology before performing for the president and his family last month. Instead of rejection, PSY continues to be courted by the American entertainment industry. He'll be working with Justin Bieber's producer and will make an appearance in a high-profile ad for pistachios during the Super Bowl.
At a Hong Kong awards show last month, Chan and PSY met for the first time. It was a mutual admiration society. "You are the legend," Chan said to PSY as a young audience cheered on. "One day you can make your dream come up. All the young people, never give up. One day your dream may come true, just like him. So proud of you."
"Yankees" -- especially those whose parents came to the United States from all parts of Asia seeking freedom from tyranny -- should shun these exploitative peas in an anti-American pod. They don't speak for me. Michelle Malkin is the author of "Culture of Corruption: Obama and his Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks and Cronies" (Regnery 2010). Her e-mail address is email@example.com.
