NEW YORK, NY—In an effort to salvage its relationship with China, the NBA is now requiring all players to stand for the Chinese national anthem at the beginning of every game.

The official song of the People's Republic of China, "March of the Volunteers," will be played at the start of all professional basketball games, whether at home or abroad. All players, fans, coaches, and employees will be required to stand and solemnly sing lyrics including the following:

Millions of but one heart we run towards the Communist tomorrow!
Build our homeland, guard our homeland, and fight gallantly.
March on! March on! March on!
We, for tens of thousands of generations to come,
Hold high the Flag of Mao Zedong, march on!

"We hope this gesture of goodwill will show China that we love them and there is no need for our multi-billion-dollar deal to fall through," said NBA Commissioner Adam Silver. "March on, Mao!" Silver then performed a soft jazz rendition of the tune and bowed low to the ground to show President Xi Jinping that he is very sorry.

Anyone who doesn't comply will be shot, a beloved Chinese custom that should further smooth things over with the authoritarian regime.

Well, if it's the ChiCom anthem of the time of Mao's Long March, the players already know the tune (va savoir pourquoi):

They really get to the heart of the cultural and political narratives. Another good one.

Yeah Red -- another good one out of many. The goofballs on the Left *always* take the bait X-D

The Bee's satire and parodies are one great weapon that can strike deep into the heart of this insane culture without worrying about the hyperbolic loons.

If this technique helps get the message out to expose the MSM and Gummint's clownish political theater and the libs' utterly ridiculous and hypocritical ongoing PC act, then by all means. (didn't Chick's Tracts sorta accomplished the same thing?)

Btw, didn't Scopes -- the supposed universal "Fact Finder" -- actually try dock The Babylon Bee for "lying"? HA!
